I am extremely fair and do not tan at all. However since I found this product while on my vacation in HI I have been able to tan. I always apply this over my regular sunblock as I am fair and it is safer that way but it still works wonders!! I start with and SPF 30 under and gradually through the summer go down to an SPF 15. Product says that you can use with a sunblock as it doesn't have one included. My family has stolen it as well, we all love it. We always pick it up for each other whenever one of us goes it's great to be able to finally get it shipped to me without the trip. However still like to take the trip. :)

I used this product one time and one time only. The smell is HORRENDOUS....like ham gravy and coffee. It stained my bathing suit because it goes on a very dark brown and stays greasy feeling for quite a while. I just can't get past that smell. Only use this if you enjoy smelling like breakfast at a truck stop.

Comments about Maui Babe Browning Lotion, 8 fl oz:

After purchasing the product, I read comments how awful it smelled. I have to say when I got it, I immediately opened it. The smell was great. I personally drink coffee and love the smell of coffee. My son even commented how I smelled like coffee ice cream when I had it on. I used it during Spring Break in CA and was a little disappointed that as heavy and greasy as it was for a "lotion" it had to be reapplied while laying outside. However, I did get a few shades darker in a couple hours time in the 85 degree weather. I will try it again this summer.

    Comments about Maui Babe Browning Lotion, 8 fl oz:

    Brown to start. Makes you look darker the instant you apply it. So if you are pasty white....this makes you look better/darker immediately. It also makes it easy to see where you've applied it.
    Smells like Kona Coffee.
    Oil in it-goes on super smooth. Use with a sunscreen so you don't burn.
    Gives you the darkest tan you will ever have.
    If it gets on light clothes until it dries-it transfers. But so what, if washes right off.
    Found this in Hawaii. The best tanning product out there. Love it!!!

    Comments about Maui Babe Browning Lotion, 8 fl oz:

    I have tried many sunless tanning product's because I could never get a tan sitting in the sun. Each one I would end up frustrated with the smell or it wearing off in spots, turning clothes brown, making knees and elbows weird colors. I found this product and so happy I did. I am a nice tan color for the first time without a tanning bed or sunless tan. It is greasy but does slowly absorb. Some have said they don't like the smell, I don't really notice much of a smell at all. I don't have to worrying about the color coming off when I shave! I put maui sunscreen on then this,let it dry a little and head outside with my kids for a while. I had to buy another bottle because I don't want to run out. I have finally found the tan I have been looking for

        Comments about Maui Babe Browning Lotion, 8 fl oz:

        I have fair skin that can tan gradually or burn before tan. I've used the browning lotion before without seeing amazing results (since I can naturally achieve a dark tan) but figured id give it a shot with my first tan of the summer.

        Never liked the smell. Smells like coffee. Stains everything and anything so wear a dark bathing suit and use a dark towel. Very greasy, so keep away from your face if you breakout easily! Used it a couple weeks ago over some SPF 15 and I have never burned so unevenly in my life. My arms, chest, and belly are blotchy. Not even sure how I didn't burn evenly! Again, I'm trying to give this product the benefit of the doubt because though it suggested max sun exposure to be one hr, I stayed out for 3. But then why not burn evenly? Why do I have a strange burn that now turned into a tan that resembles a bad self tanning session?? Again, I have faith in the product because of its good reviews. Now that I have a decent base tan going, I may give it one more try! Fingers crossed it won't make the situation worse....

          Comments about Maui Babe Browning Lotion, 8 fl oz:

          I love this product a lot. It is super effective in creating a way deeper and nicer-looking tan. Plus it hydrates your skin as the sun attempts to dry it out.

          The pros outweigh all the cons on it. Yes it is a big thick brown and gooey lotion that will temporarily stain your bathing suit. Ideally you should apply this with no clothing on and let it dry. I put my sunscreen on first then this on top of it.

          If you do get some on your clothing, it will wash out.

          I say it is messy, but totally worth it. You will be hooked on it for a killer tan!

              I USE THE DARK BOTTLE WHICH I CALL "DARK CHOCOLATE", THERE IS
              A DIFFERENCE FROM THE OTHER, I call, "MILK CHOCOLATE". THIS IS
              SOMETHING TO MAKE SURE YOU GET RIGHT. THE COMPANY KEPT SHIPPING OUT THE "LIGHT BOTTLE", INSTEAD OF THE DARK BOTTLE. I WILL ORDER THIS PRODUCT AGIAN, AS IT IS THE BEST PRICE I HAVE FOUND.

                  I bought this to try because of the good reviews and I was hoping I could get a tan faster. It has a horrible smell and is very greasy!!! It looks almost like a self tanner when you apply it to your skin and you must wipe your hands after you are done applying. I've read that people get 'tan' after the first time of using it, but it didn't work for me, as I was out in the sun for 4 hours when I first applied this lotion and I am still white. I tried again the next day and was outside for almost 7 hours. Still no tan. Not sure what I will do with the rest. I am able to tan as I was dark last Summer, but stopped tanning in the Winter, so I don't think that is a problem.

                    My Mom first purchased this product in Hawaii and loved it. She wanted to get more so I found it here for a great price and bought two bottles, one for her and one for me. I loved it, I used on my beach vacation and got very nice results.
