I used this on my holiday in the Caribbean last year - not to save my skin (I never burn or peel) but just to try & extend my tan. I applied this every day after coming back to the hotel room from a tanning session on the beach & I must say; it helped me prolong my dark tan very well!
The bottle is extremely big & is in a pump style. The price is amazingly cheap, so you're getting a lot for your money...it really is a great deal. The smell is nice & the lotion absorbs easily (as long as you don't smother too much on). It brings back a lot of moisture to the skin & leaves me feeling soft/smooth for hours on end.
This is the best tan extender I've ever used, & it's also great as a moisturiser. I usually just use palmers cocoa butter to try & extend my tan, but this is the only tan extender I'm ever going to buy from now on. It's brilliant.
WOnderful product- use it everytime after I'm out in the sun and it really does extend your tan...Dirt cheap (compared to other products and lotions that claim to do the same thing), convenient to buy (pick it up at the local drugstore - no tempting visits to sephora needed), and a great moisturizer (aloe, vitamin E, etc.)
This is the best lotion. I use it mainly in the summer, but I have been known to use it all year. When I alternate this with the Banana Boat Aloe I never peel or have any pain at all. This stuff smells great and really works for me. This along with sunscreen is always in my beach bag.
I have been using this product for at least 5 years - and I don't believe I have been using any of the same products for that long! This was, is and will remain my every day body lotion. It keeps whatever light tan I have from fading, it sinks in quickly without any greasy feeling, and it does not irritate my sensitive skin. My skin is so soft because of this lotion. In winter on says where my legs are particularly dry, I use Gold Bold Ultimate Healing Aloe Lotion, but other than that, this will always have a place in my routine.
I love this lotion. It sinks in quickly and doesn't over power with it's scent. It's comforting and I feel that my skin is nourished from it. My skin stays moisturized for a long time with this product. There is no greasiness and I use it daily. I'm an avid hand washer so I'm constantly putting on lotion after I wash. As far as the packaging goes; it's a large bottle for the price and the pump works well. It's not a decanter bottle by any means but it lasts a long time - I'm almost finished my bottle I purchased last year.
My only beef is that I can't find it here in Ontario, Canada come the fall/winter months. I am going to have to re-stock in Spring when it comes back on the shelves. Will definitely buy more than one!
i dont like that lotion. doesn't work for me. after sun i put it on my skin-doesn not work well on me. an hour later my skin looks more DRY!!!! 2 lippies for the brand. i still like their other products.
This lotion is fantastic. It sinks in quickly and doesn't leave my skin sticky. The fragrance is pleasant and light. I can smell it faintly on my skin hours later but it's never overpowering. I use this after being in the sun or whenever I want to moisturize my body and it's great.
I have really dry skin on my arms and legs, so I have tried many different lotions, but this is my favorite. I use it once or twice a day and it always leaves my skin feeling soft, but not greasy.
This review is for the Vitamin E and Aloe lotion by Banana Boat - I'm assuming it's the same as this, in a greenish bottle, not the brown one in the picture that shows up with the item. Anyway.
This is NOT only good for after-sun. It did completely save my skin last summer from the sun (I am very pale and have always healed painfully slowly from sunburns - not this time...thank goodness. VERY little peeling) but I actually kept using it afterwards. I used the entire bottle up within a few months, as someone who has probably never used up a whole lotion before this incident. When I ran out, I decided to finish using my other lotions before repurchasing, which was a mistake. My skin started breaking out badly on my back again, which I connected to not being in the pool and getting the sun and chlorine that always cleared my breakouts up. Finally bought another bottle of this last week, have been using it every day, and bam - my back looks probably 75% clear now. It's like magic - perhaps my reaction to it is better than most people's will be, but all I can speak for is myself, and it's been INCREDIBLE for my skin. I give up trying to find any scented lotion that will actually do any good for my skin - this is all I need.
Very nice & soothing. It can be used for any time, really. None of us should be getting sunburned (for shame) but even for those accidental tans this is a great product to speed healing and calm the skin.
