I absolutely LOVE this product. Growing up in California, you have to use sunscreen every single day. The subtle scent and non-greasy texture made it easy to wear sunscreen daily.

The only negative is the fact that I'm having a hard time finding this sunscreen! I've searched every drugstore, googled it, searched on eBay, the works. I saw on a review below that Banana Boat said that they still manufacture the item. If anyone can give me a heads up as to where I can find this, I would appreciate it if you would please let me know!

I don't get sunburnt, I just get more tan, but I don't want to be too too dark, so I use this. Plus it's saving my skin all the added damage. Smells good too.

I LOVELOVELOVE this sunscreen!! The only reason I deducted a point is because U.S. sunscreens don't have Mexoryl XL, the best UVA protector out there (hurry up, FDA!!). But this is the BEST sunscreen for body I've ever found, and I have a closet full of bottles and tubes of stuff from the dark, dark period when I couldn't find my VitaSkin in the stores! I just called Banana Boat (yes, that's how good this stuff is) and am relieved they still make it. VitaSkin goes on like a rich hand cream, has broad spectrum protection, and is very, very moisturizing. And the cocoa butter/coconut smell is nice. I would use this just because it's emollient, but the fact that it's protecting me from sun spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer make this my HOLY GRAIL of sunscreens!!

This sunscreen is excellent - it goes on smoothly and sinks into your skin within five minutes or so. It has a mild cocoa-butter smell which some people don't like, but it doesn't bother me. I don't usually wear it on my face, although when I ran out of facial sunscreen, I did put this on my face with no skin irritation. I'm almost at the end of the bottle and will definitely buy this product again. Update: I am on my second bottle of this and have been using it as a facial moisturizer all winter and my skin hasn't been flaky or dry at all.
