    This is an amazing product! Goes on well, doesn’t leave you looking like an Oompa Loompa either!! I use it actually while in the tanning bed and literally after 2 uses I’m already getting dark! Trust me this is a great product and worth every penny!! 😍

    Can you use this on your face?

    • Alexia

      Aloha Carley! 🙂

      We do have babes who use the Browning Lotion on their face. When doing so, we strongly advise applying the lotion to a small area of the skin first to see how your skin reacts before deciding to apply the product to the whole area, and don’t forget to apply SPF 30 or higher beforehand.

    Will it stain your clothes or towel?

    • Alexia

      Aloha! 🙂

      Amazing Maui Babe Browning Lotions are brown in color and will rub off on items such as towels, swimsuits, etc., but they should not stain. We suggest rinsing the product from items quickly after contact is made to avoid any staining.

      If that isn’t possible or an option at the time, we suggest the following:
      – Soaking any items in water
      – Using a stain remover and allowing it to sit for a while before rinsing. (If using a stain remover, be sure to read the directions to view how long it is recommended to allow the product to sit on an item to remove stains.)

      Maui Babe tip:
      We recommend using darker colored towels, bikinis, clothing, and other items when tanning with our suntan lotions.

  8. Andreanne

    amazing!!! can i workout after using this or u suggest taking a shower first then workout?

    • Alexia

      Aloha Andreanne! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. There are babes who workout while wearing the Original Browning Lotion after tanning because it is water-resistant, so it really depends on personal preference. As a reminder, the product is not a stain or bronzer. We hope you have a wonderful summer. Mahalo for being an Amazing Maui Babe! 🙂

  9. Ileana

    Can I use the original formula in tanning beds? Or it has to be just the salon formula? What’s the difference between both formulas

    • Alexia

      Aloha Ileana!

      We recommend the Tanning Salon Formula or Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil for tanning bed use. If you already purchased the Original Browning Lotion, just be sure ask your salon ahead of time what products they permit. (:

      The main difference between the ingredients is the Tanning Salon Formula and Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil do not contain mineral oil.

    It stinks to high Heaven but works beautifully!!! I’ve only been out a couple days but my pale skin is a beautiful golden brown!

    • Alexia

      Aloha Stacy! (: We are thrilled to hear you’ve gotten great results from using our Original Browning Lotion. For those who don’t enjoy the scent of our Original Formula, we always recommend giving our Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil a try. Mahalo for being an Amazing Maui Babe!

  11. Perri

    My all time favorite browning lotion. I’m a Black woman who loves a nice even tan and I can’t recommend this product enough. I’ve been using it for about 4/5 years and I can always count on the formula to not only smell delicious but to make me look like I’ve been on an island for weeks.

    • Alexia

      Mahalo for being a loyal and an Amazing Maui Babe, Perri! We hope your summer is off to a wonderful and sunny start. (:

  12. Carly

    Can i mix the maui babe browning lotion in with my sunscreen? I know it says to go on after, but i was wondering if I mixed them if they would have the same effect.

    • Alexia

      Aloha Carly! (: We always recommend applying SPF 30 or higher before the Browning Lotion to make sure you protect your babe skin. Max sun time for beginners is 1 hour at a time. Mahalo!
