This one is great for the arms, legs and hands. The best one I've found in the drugstore actually for that. It has a mild, sweet, tropical scent and blends in fast and easy. Has a lot of slip. It sets to a matte, lightweight, soft finish. Yes, it's not shiny or heavy! :DIt has a BIG drawback though, and that is that it clogs my pores when I use it on my face, neck or chest. I originally bought it to replace Breakout Free SPF from neutrogena for my neck & chest, but Im going to have to go back to that one. If you are not prone to breakouts I have tried this on my face and makeup goes great on top.I would repurchase for arms/hands/legs.

I'm happy to say this chapstick did not make my lips dry. This chapstick won't really moisturize lips, but it does provide a nice barrier and maintains them. You don't feel like you have anything on your lips, it seems to disappear after several minutes. I'm assuming its still there? It's always good to reapply anyways.

I recently purchased this sunscreen at Target for $7.59 (I think it was either on sale or had been reduced to a lower price from $7.99). The tube contains 6 fl oz (177 mL). I think that this sunscreen is reasonably priced. I don't know how long this product has been out in the market, but the label on the tube says "New" so I take it that this is a new product in the line of Banana Boat sunscreens. The print on the label makes the following claims: (1) UVA/UVB protection; (2) Broad spectrum SPF 50+; (3) Helps you feel dry & fresh; (4) soft matte finish; (5) skin breathes easy; (6) water resistant (80 minutes). Active ingredients are listed as follows: avobenzone 3%; homosalate 9%; octisalate 4%; octocrylene 5%. I have to say that I do like this product. First, it does not contain oxybenzone. While there are mixed views about oxybenzone, if I can avoid buying a sunscreen with this ingredient, I will. Second, I like that the lotion is easy to spread, absorbs quickly, and dries to a soft matte finish. I also have no issues when I apply my liquid foundation over it. In terms of application/feel, the Dry Balance formula feels so much better than Neutrogena's Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch SPF 50 sunscreen (the Neutrogena sunscreen isn't sheer). The Dry Balance lotion also has a tropical fruity scent, which I like and don't find overpowering. However, if you are sensitive to scents, you may not like how this lotion smells. Compared to the Japanese sunscreens that i have tried, Dry Balance isn't as lightweight in texture; but Dry Balance feels more lightweight than many of the other US sunscreens that I have tried. One thing that I do find annoying is that this tube does not list the expiration date (this appears to be the norm with Banana Boat). Rather, it lists a product code of 170063951. I know that some brands will have a key to their product code or an explanation as to how one can tell when the product was manufactured. I could not find such an explanation on the Banana Boat website but I am hoping that the "17" that was in the beginning of the product code means that it was manufactured in 2017. Banana Boat does state on their website that the shelf life of their sunscreen is 3 years from the date of manufacture. Nevertheless, I think Banana Boat shouldn't have to inconvenience consumers by having to guess the expiration date of their products so I docked off one lipstick in my overall rating.

This is a pretty good self tanner. Gives a light pretty color that looks natural, not too orangey or browny. Flattering if you have naturally fairer skin. It also goes on more smoothly than other self tanners I've tried.The cons are that it's still not easy enough for it to be worth the hassle for me, and it didn't camouflage the flaws on my skin either.
