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 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.

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

          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.

                          This gel goes on smoothly and evenly. I use it after shaving my legs and it gives a sheen and goes in the skin to soften as the day goes on. I have used this product for many, many years and have been pleased with the results when sunbathing.

                          I don't tan much anymore, but like my legs to have a little color. This product gives a lovely tan that looks natural.
