I have been using this product since I was 12 yrs old when the family use to go to the neighborhood swimming pool! I'm now 51 yrs old! My skin is so soft and smooth! I start off using Bain De Soleil spf 15 to get the tan going and then I go and use this product for the rest of the summer!! I take it with when I go to Hawaii every year! Makes my skins feel WONDERFUL!!! I would recommend the product to anyone!!

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.

      Comments about Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee Sunscreen, SPF 4, 3.12 oz:

      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.

            Comments about Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee Sunscreen, SPF 4, 3.12 oz:

            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.

              I use this product in the shower for moisturizing and I also use it in the sun, why? I love that it moisturizes and the smell reminds me of childhood. Our whole family used it in the 1970's by the pool, at the beach, at the lake so the smell reminds me of summer and good times with family. If they change the smell, or this product, I'll never buy it again.
              I'm upset that they changed the packaging! Please go back to the vintage packaging, it's a classic that needs NO updating.
              Also, I love the metal tube that it comes in, but, it does leak at the bottom crease if the package is cold.

                    When I saw this product on this website I almost fell out of my chair. This is not an easy to find product! I used this stuff religiously back in the 80s, early 90s as my go to sunscreen and tanning lotion. It's the best! The metal tube is classic and one whiff of it brought back great memories of being at the beach with my friends soaking up the sun. I would take that little metal tube with me every time I went to the beach and it was inevitable it was used by me and all my friends for a golden tan. It smells just the same and produces the best tan. I am of Irish/American Indian descent so I have fair skin that tans easily, but I still need to be careful. I always start out with a higher SPF and then end with this stuff. I'm not a teenager anymore so I want to watch my sun exposure. This stuff will also leave your skin feeling so soft and moisturized after a day in the sun! Thanks for the old school flashback!

                          I have been using this product for many years. It gives a beautiful tan. Just remember to start off with high SPF to get a base tan. Burning the skin is what really causes skin damage! By the time you are able to use SPF4 you should have a base. I'm trying their SPF10 spray because I can't find the gelee in SPF8.

                          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.
