I have been using Bain de Soleil products since the 70s and to me, they are worth the extra $. I live in Vegas, have very fair skin so I start tanning in Mid-April when it starts to get warm. Maybe 20 minutes back and front then work up to 30 min. each twice a day. HINT. For you people going on vacation and are still fair skinned..PUT YOUR SUNSCREEN ON 30 Min. BEFORE you out in the sun and re-apply right before you go. Let it SOAK in. Putting on an expensive sunscreen and then go swim is a waste.

I read all the great reviews, but just didn't see the difference in this product and any other. It has a strange smell, kind of orangey, kind of mediciney. I'm fair-skinned, and it did keep me from burning (SPF 4) but didn't do anything to enhance tanning any more than other products. It is kind of greasy, since it contains paraffin, and was kind of stubborn to wash out of my bathing suit. It made my shower floor slick, too. It's an average product, nothing spectacular. It's perfect if you want to be in the sun for an extended time and want some tan, but don't want to get crispy.

        This product is never sold in stores anymore; at least I can never find it. So it makes me very happy to see this and buy it. I like it because it keeps my skin from becoming dry and it does not smell like coconut although I love the smell of coconut but not for sunbathing as the bees love it.

          This is a product for already darker skin. It has less SPF for those who are allergic. I love the tropical hue it gives to my skin.

            I am now in my 50's and started using this product in high school. Now my daughter is using it and loves it as much as I ever have!

            I love the orange gelee and the way it makes my pale skin look right away.

            Apply generously and frequently.

                          I really like this sunscreen b/c it doesn't irritate my skin as far as stinging/allergies go, but it's VERY greasy and runs all over the place. A little goes a long way b/c of this, so I guess that's good, too, but if you have oily skin (I do not), DON'T use this product.

                          Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee Sunscreen SPF 4

                           – If you want to get a gorgeous, deep tan, it’s best to use a product with some SPF. This can help minimize the risk of sunburn and extensive damage that can happen from repeated burns. Achieving a beautiful tan is easier when you choose quality sun formulas, such as those offered by Bain de Soleil. The Orange Gelee Sunscreen SPF 4 gives you minimal sun protection while pursuing your goal of a rich tan.

                          Achieving a Deep Tan Safely



                          Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee Sunscreen SPF 4 is a high quality product that enables you to achieve a deep tan with less damage, while also nourishing your skin so it maintains its natural levels of hydration. Designed to provide a lasting tan that also moisturizes your skin, Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee Sunscreen SPF 4 is blended with rich emollients. As a result, regular use of this product helps to soften your skin while keeping it somewhat protected against the harshness of UV rays.

                          Tips on Getting a Safe Tan



                          For the best results, you should apply this product evenly on any area of the skin that is going to be exposed directly to the sun's rays. The name Bain de Soleil translates to the phrase "bath of the sun." What better way to bathe your skin safely with golden sunshine than to use a product such as Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee Sunscreen SPF 4? It has been dermatologist tested and offers a PABA-free formula.
