This is a great sunscreen that does a great job of protecting you from the sun and staying even if you go swimming with it on. The folks at Banana Boat are the leaders when it comes to sunscreen and they have made themselves one great sunscreen this time. This is the sunscreen I go to first when it comes to protecting my family from the harmful effects of the sun. Effectiveness This sunscreen has worked so well for me and my family. It has kept us from getting sunburned. It also stays on very well when you go swimming. Scent This sunscreen has a very nice tropical scent. It will make you feel like you're at a tropical resort even when you're just lounging around the back yard pool. Absorption This sunscreen does a great job of absorbing into your skin. It doesn't leave your arm all greasy, nor does it leave your hands all sticky after you've applied it to yourself. This sunscreen goes on very smoothly.
