Summer Color Self-Tanning Lotion - Deep Dark Color

My dream sunless tanner. For me, it's the best ever. PROS • No tint = cleaner application process, not to mention clothes & sheets. • Neutral smell • Spreads fast • Dries faster than many lotion formulas. In an hour, that moist feeling is gone from backs of knees & insides of elbows. By the middle of the night, skin is bone-dry. • Can get away with spacing out applications every 4 days instead of my usual 3 • Comes completely off in 2 loofah glove/soap/baking soda scrub sessions • $6 range • Color result is a toasty neutral to warm tone. • I'm an NC5. Deep/Dark gets me to an NC20. NC25 if I were to reapply every 3 days. • Bottle lasts 5 applications & I'm generous. CONS • Doesn't dry as fast as a mousse formula (really reaching here) If you look at the reviews for this product on Target, Walmart, etc., many are miffed that Banana Boat took away the tint. IMO, that is the best thing they could have done. For a product that is this cheap & cheerful, I'm astonished at how impressive its performance is. Just try it!

Simply Protect Sensitive Mineral Enriched Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

The Banana Boat Simply line is the best sunscreen I have been able to use. But please note, this stuff is not meant to be worn on your face under makeup. On your face at the beach with no makeup...sure. But this is not meant for on the face under makeup. I actually prefer the sport Simply line better than this because it spreads a bit easier, but this is excellent for those that need the cleanest sunscreen options. This sensitive skin version just takes a second more to rub in. I hope Banana Boat does not stop making these because we have horribly sensitive skin and don't have a lot of options in our family. IMPORTANT NOTE: But be warned, the spray versions are not our friend. It has the Avobenzone that we try to avoid due to stinging. So please note that the positive reviews are for the creams only.

Simply Protect Sensitive Mineral Enriched Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

Been on the search for a good drugstore priced sunscreen to implement into my daily routine and looks like I've found it. I really like how light and liquid in consistency it is because it makes it very easy to blend in. Light sunscreen smell and slight white cast but nothing close to pasty or chalky like some are or how some sunscreens become over time. It is less than $10 for 6 oz so I definitely think this is worth the money and worth a shot. As far as makeup, I have not experienced any issues. I think as long as your skin is well prepared and moisturized before you should be good.
