PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "Best stuff to use when trying to get a tan, but to prevent burns or damage, apply after sunscreen." in 91 reviews
  • "I love Banana Boat Tanning Oil, it smells good and gives me a beautiful deep rich tan. This is best used after you have a tan started while previously using an SPF and probably not best for those with very fair skin color due to it not having any SPF. If you burn or are prone to skin cancer I do not recommend this product without SPF." in 35 reviews

My favorite thing about this product is the smell. It smells amazing and very tropical, taking me to some exotic beach somewhere. Aside from the smell, this product works wonderfully to evenly and effectively bronze my skin. I have fairly dry skin and I’ve noticed that this product causes my skin to be silky and smooth. I also have sensitive skin but I have never had a bad reaction to this product. I typically like to use the SPF4 kind as it leaves myself somewhat protected from the sun. It is also truly waterproof. I’ve gone for a dip in the pool to cool off with this product on and it still remains intact, working to tan and protect my skin. It is a very affordable product and can be found at a variety of locations including CVS target and Walmart. I would highly recommend this product to those looking to achieve a perfect bronze color this summer! I almost always have a few bottles of this in my house. One of my favorite tanning oils! Will be using this product again before summer to get that perfect bronzed glow! Love!

Definitely works! I’m at the beach for a week and so far I have gotten a beautiful, deep tan and no burn. The only thing I dislike is that I feel like I have noticed it wearing off quickly with sweat and being in the water. I wish it had better staying power because I constantly have to reapply and it uses up a lot of product. Would definitely purchase again!

Love this oil!! I am someone who burns very easily due to my fair skin, but even at a low SPF this oil helps me get a quick, deep tan! It was so affordable ($8-9) and I love my results. If I know I’ll be out in the sun for over an hour or so, I add Coppertone SPF 15 Water Resistant UVA/UVB Protecion Tanning Sunscreen Lotion, 10 Ounce on under it so I still tan, and have some water security with added SPF. This is great to help you pre tan before a vacation!!!

First and foremost, I am a Florida girl and sun worshipping is part of my DNA so I know thing or two about tanning oils. I love Banana Boat Dark Tanning Oil SPF 4, for the same reason that many people don’t like it and that is because it’s oily! This oil is for days when you are committed to soaking in the rays. I drench myself in it and stay oily all afternoon and as I’m getting ready to leave the beach I take a dip in the ocean to rinse off. I don’t recommend for an active beach day with lots of water time and beach volleyball. But I do have to say I love putting this on my legs (sparingly) on a day I’m going to be outside a lot, it gives a little sheen and has some moisturizing properties.
Also! Keep in mind, this is SPF 4 so it’s not going to protect fair skin ladies and let’s be real it’s not really great for anyone to use unless you’re down to risk skin cancer and wrinkles. But hey we only live once right!?

First and foremost, I live in Minnesota so it’s all about getting a tan fast when summer finally comes and the snow is gone. I use this product all summer when I’m out by the pool. It is affordable and found almost anywhere. It smells amazing, like any other banana boat product. When you put it on, you feel like you instantly have a tan. I like this product because it still has some SPF but allows you to get a nice golden tan.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! this is my go to product for gradual color! its amazing! I put it on before going out when I know I'm going to be spending time in the sun. It darkens your skin rapidly and isn't streaky at all! It also doesn't leave your hands orange. which is a huge plus cause noone likes that!! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND for those on the go that don't have time to worry about laying out.

I have a very light skin complexion,and I can use this and get a perfect tan without worrying about burning. The smell of this is the BEST, I keep a bottle out during the winter months just so I can smell it! It helps me get thru the winter! Lol. It soaks into the skin so I don't worry about staining my cloths or having my hands feel oily all day. This is a great product all around, there isn't anything I dislike about it.

I really like this tanning oil! It has a fantastic smell that’s very tropical smelling. I like the fact that the tanning oil has sunscreen in it however I would have liked for there to be additional tanning lotions that contain higher SPF options. One reason why I like the oil compared to sunscreen is that it helps to moisturize my skin since it’s an oil. Hydrated skin helps to maintain a better tan

I use this at the beginning of summer to get a nice tan going. Winter season I'm usually pale, but with this I can a nice even glowing tan for the summer season. I did end up using this one whole summer and I was tan brown. I may have had too much fun in the sun that year. Lol Overall great price for good tan without the chemical smells. This one smells great!

Banana boat has always been one of my favorite tanning and sunscreen brands, I love this oil because it’s dry and doesn’t make your hands feel greasy, it gives my skin a beautiful brown glow, and it doesn’t easily come off! Did I mention the smell is AMAZING!!!

Does this make you super greasy? Does it make your skin breakout with acne if you use it on your face? How often do you have to reapply?

When using this product should I put sunscreen on before or after application?
