This Banana Boat Triple Defense Sunscreen is great! I don't know about anyone else, but finding a sunscreen with SPF higher than 30 is hard! Despite being black, my glorious melanin does not protect me from sun damage LOL I don't know why, but I sunburn - bad. Summers are triple-digits nearly every day where I live. Even though I have dark skin & don't sunburn as quickly as …Read more

I'm a sunscreen junkie who tans easily and is very concerned about skin cancer. I liked that this product has avobenzone to screen out UVA rays. I'm still (after many years) mourning the discontinuation of Banana Boat's Vitaskin series, which went on beautifully, protected well, and had a delicious fruity scent. This one has a slightly chemical scent--not very pleasant, but at …Read more

This is absolutely brilliant...for me. Had I read some of the reviews on here I may have been put off. I picked up a 60 ml tube in a discount shop on a hope and a prayer that it would be a great alternative to my Japanese sunscreen, which I do love. Since the shipping cost went up I do not think I will buy it anymore, plus it cost more and is smaller in size. I am now going to search for a spray …Read more

FINALLY. I have been searching for a high SPF sunscreen that would not break me out AND doesn't leave me looking oily or like a geisha. I found it. This goes on like regular moisturizer, sinking in without looking odd. I am so happy I decided to try this stuff.

For as thick is stuff is it's surprisingly non sticky and didn't make me a shiny dirt magnet. I wore it to a large outdoor art/antiques show for a few hours two days in a row and was pleasantly surprised that it was enough to not get sunburned.

Unfortunately I didn't have any sunblock specifically for my face so I used this. Day one I was fine but after day two the …

UPDATE 9/17/2010: I took away a lippie because, unfortunately, I found that this product does get shiny on hot, humid days. It's not as thick or greasy-feeling as some sunscreens, but it's not matte either.

I still like the way it hydrates without feeling greasy, and the fact that it's non-irritating. I think it will be nice for winter. Dry skins would probably like it …

This product is great - it is light and non-greasy and provides great UVA and UVB protection. I have used one bottle and my skin looks great. I just bought another tube for the rest of the summer. And it was on sale for $7.49 a bottle, you cannot beat this price. I highly recommend it.

This is a very good everyday sunblock. What I like: 1) It has a great consistency; very smooth and easy to blend 2) It has very little odor, which is really important to me, especially since I use gobs of this everyday 3) It seems to work well, even on very sunny days my pale skin doesn't burn 4) It is moisturizing but not greasy 5) Inexpensive and easy to find

I had a really good feeling about this sunscreen when I picked it up at the store. It's actually one of the few products I've bought without reading the reviews on it here first and since becoming a member on MUA! I trust Banana Boat's sunscreen since I've used it in the past when going to the beach, and even their SPF 30 sport sunscreen kept my fair skin from burning all day …Read more
