I have used this for several years now year round. Where I bought it before did not handle it this year. I have looked everywhere to find it. Drugstore.com had it so I bought enough to get me through the winter. I use it after my shower everyday. I go through a bottle a month. This keeps me from drying out and gives me a natural sunkissed color. It is not so much that you would look funny during the winter. This product is great.

I love the Ocean Potion brand, but this moisturizer, along with a sunscreen by the same brand, has this awful baby aspirin orange smell. It's synthetic smelling and wish it wasn't included, because otherwise I absolutely love this lotion! The self tanner is subtle enough to use every day and it keeps my skin soft and moisturized. Please, please make a fragrance free!

    I have used this for 5 years. I look tan always. I mix it with my Victoria Secret lotions after I shower, daily. It doesn't streak or smell bad. I love this stuff. It's hard to find out season. I sure hope they never stop making this!

      Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Everglow Daily Moisturizer with Gentle Skin Darkener, 20 fl oz:

      I love this product.

      I have extremely dry skin all over, especially in the winter, so one day I googled for the absolute best drugstore lotions, and I was shocked when I found this at the top of multiple lists. I've used Loreal and banana boat self tanners before, and I hesitated to buy this because of how much trouble my previous ones have been to put on evenly.

      I bought it anyway, and I'm glad I did. My skin after a week of use once a day is clear of all dry patches and baby-butt smooth. I have noticed a darkening of my skin, but not enough to be obvious to others, and I haven't found a single 'streak' spot on me despite me putting it on quickly and haphazardly. I love this stuff and will continue to buy it as my regular lotion.

      The only complaint I've seen regularly on other reviews is the smell, and I can understand. Now... I'm a 22 year old girl, and I love the smell. I will tell you, it smells like orange creamsicles. Exactly like them, and it's not a subtle smell. I get compliments all the time, people asking me what perfume I use, because they say every time I walk buy them they smell candy. Now saying that, I can understand someone who's not a fan of scents like this being turned off by the smell. It is strong, and it is overwhelmingly sweet. It doesn't smell like self tanner, and it doesn't smell bad, but it's definitely not for everyone. I put it on right after the shower, and by the time I go out anywhere it's died down enough to be a nice light scent, but when you first out it on it's like you inhaled a tub of orange sherbet through your nose.

          This product is great, especially for Winter months! It really does make the skin have a slight color tint without looking fake. I am olive skinned, not sure what it would look like it you were really fair but it works great for me.

          The only thing not too great is I don't see it in any stores around anymore so I get if from drugstore.com.

              After about a week I started noticing the color change and thought it was great. Then I noticed that there was obvious streaking and lines that didn't look nature, inner forearm was a main one. Then I also noticed that my white towels were now also tan and that the stuff was rubbing off.

                To get base color, I used this product daily for about 3 days. To maintain, I use it once or twice each week. It gave me a lovely glow and the scent was delightful (think cardamom). Ocean Potion is hands down better than any of the other gradual tanning products and I really liked the moisturizing properties as well. The price just cannot be beat and what a wonderful surprise to get such amazing results for such a small price. I'm stocking up!!!

                I absolutely love this lotion! It's by far the best self-tanner I've used. I also use ocean potion's after sun lotion on a regular basis year round!! I LOVE the smell, and I was thrilled to find that this lotion smells the same. This definitely gives you a noticeable amount of color, and it's not orange like a lot of self-tanners are. I will say that it has that after-smell...the self-tanner after-smell. That's maybe the only thing I don't like, but it's not that bad honestly! And one thing to note is that it works best if you already have little bit of a base tan from the sun. It will keep your tan lasting longer especially if you don't get the chance to be out in the sun as often to build your tan...this definitely helps with that too!

                I used this for two days in a row and could notice a difference with it working. Unfortunately I get migraines with strong fragrances. It smells similar to tanning lotion but beware if you use it everywhere.

                    I had used this product years and years ago and had really liked it, in spite of the Creamsicle smell. I just tried again to gear up for summer and it's awful. I used for a week straight and not only did color not develop, it's scent is overpowering and turns really unappealingly sweet throughout the day. It's also really sticky and takes a LONG time to absorb. I also felt that it was drying my skin, unlike some other gradual self-tanner/moisturizers. I'm throwing it away and will go back to Jergens.

                        i use daily - i use the one without darkener in summer. it absorbs fast, smells great like the beach even in the winter! the darkener one does leave marks in between fingers if you don't wash your hands after applying. got darkener by accident one time -- love both with or without.

                        Ocean Potion Suncare Everglow Daily Moisturizer with Gentle Skin Darkener

                         – Keep skin feeling and looking healthy and tanned 365 days a year with Ocean Potion Suncare Everglow Daily Moisturizer with Gentle Skin Darkener. Formulated to help maintain an existing tan, or to create a beautiful color for light and medium skin tones, this lotion goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. Whether you've worked hard to establish a tan or want to begin to give your skin a wonderful, natural-looking glow, the formula will help you with that just-off-the-beach look while it protects and enhances the skin tissues.

                        Formulated With Vitamin D3



                        The rich suite of natural emollients includes canola, coconut and orange peel oils and shea butter. They not only moisturize the skin tissues but may help improve the texture and enhance shade retention. Aloe vera soothes the skin while vitamin E helps to fight free radicals and protect against damage. Also included is vitamin D3. Finally, a gentle skin darkener helps maintain an existing tan or begins to establish a new tone before you even hit the beach. After applying the lotion, wait until the skin is dry before dressing. As with all Ocean Potion products, this formula is PABA and paraben-free and has not been tested on animals.

                        Ocean Potion Knows Sun



                        Based in Cocoa, Florida - the "Sunshine State"! - Ocean Potion has been making sun protection and tanning products for over 20 years. The lotions were originally only sold in beachfront shops and resort hotels, but soon word of their quality spread faster than towels on a sunny beach! Their science-based formulas utilize the best emollients, botanical oils and vitamins - particularly the pioneering use of vitamin D3 - to help to protect and enhance skin health. As a result, the Skin Cancer Foundation has bestowed Ocean Potion with their seal for "safe and effective sun protection."
