Why people love it
  • Goes on smooth and leaves behind no streaks
  • Great bronze color that isn't orange
  • Saves you money

Unfortunately, this stuff has that awful fake-tanner smell that sticks with you for a couple of showers. 


If expensive beauty products aren't your thing, this is the perfect self tanner for you. And, you can find it at any drugstore.

Color: We love that this tanner comes in 2 shades: light/medium and deep/dark. The Banana Boat Summer Color self tanner is made with a self-adjusting color formula that allows you to control the shade of your tan. Want a darker tan? Just apply more lotion. This stuff leaves such a beautiful glow immediately after application and it doesn't streak or look orange. As a bonus, the formula is oil free and enriched with aloe vera and Vitamin E. 

Application: The Banana Boat self tanner comes in a traditional squeeze tube 6 ounce bottle. The consistency of the tanner is just like a lotion which means you can apply it with your hands. Simply rub it all over your body as if you were putting on lotion. No fancy mitt or gloves needed. Just make sure and wash your hands afterwards! The color will develop in 2-3 hours and lasts several days. 

Price: For the $6 price, you can't find better - it's one of the cheapest self-tanners out there. And, the cheapest one on our list.
