I’ll be completely honest, I am not one of those women you see at the beach tanning for an endless amount of hours. The minute I even attempt to lay down to get some sun, one of my kids is asking me to play ball or chase them around the backyard. I’m also not one for tanning salons—I will never judge someone for tanning that way, but it isn’t something for me. I like to think I’m pretty strict when it comes to sun protection, which means most of those tanning lotions are out of the question. So what’s a girl to do when summer has finally appeared and I am pale as a ghost? Luckily for me, I found an incredible product called Maui Babe. This product is A-MAZ-ING!

Maui Babe Browning Lotion accelerates the sun-triggered tanning processes in your skin, eliminating long, torturous hours cultivating your tan. Maui Babe Browning Lotion is safe for all skin types — even the fairest and most sensitive. It is even safe for use with our SPF30 sunscreen, to extend your stay in the sun.

One thing that sold me immediately on Maui Babe’s Browning Lotion is that they actually recommend applying an SPF 30 on before using their lotion. Skin cancer and sun spots are something that we all need to be cautious of, and having a tanning lotion that works well with a high SPF is something I hadn’t heard of before.

Right before my recent trip to Hawaii with my family, I knew we would be spending a lot of time in the sun. So after researching Maui Babe online I decided to head to our local Ulta and picked up the Browning Lotion and the After Browning Lotion. I immediately opened the bottle to smell the Browning Lotion. I’m not a big fan of the scent on the majority of tanning lotions out there so I was pleasantly surprised when the smell of Nutella hit my nose. Oh. Em. Gee! I LOVE Nutella! I was so excited that I actually text messaged my friend, Melisa, to tell her!

Let me just tell you, not only does the Browning Lotion smell delicious, it WORKS— and quickly at that! I couldn’t believe how tan I got in just one day. After a week in Hawaii my skin looked like a tan goddess. The ingredients are quite impressive as well! The lotion carries very little mineral oil, and all natural ingredients from Maui. The lotion will absorb into the skin, versus settling atop the skin and causing skin burn and/or irritation. The Browning Lotion is an outdoor tan enhancer which is ALL NATURAL. The Browning Lotion gives you an expedited deep dark tan which is long lasting. Ingredients include Macadamia Nut Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Aloe, Kona Coffee Extract and vitamins.

“Everyone who has used MAUI BABE is thrilled with how FAST and BEAUTIFUL they tan, and how wonderful their skin feels from the MOISTURIZING BENEFITS and the NATURAL SKIN PROTECTION. (Put it on one arm and not the other, and go in the sun, and you will feel a real difference. The one without it feels hot and burning, while the one with it is browning fast and rich.) It is WATER RESISTANT, and our customers tell us that INSECTS HATE IT! ALL INSECTS! Though we NEVER test on animals.”

After my shower every night, I applied Maui Babe’s After Browning Lotion. This helped my skin to stay moisturized and really helped prevent peeling, which I do—badly.

Feed your tanned skin with the soothing Aloe Vera, Vitamins, and the nourishing Tropical Oils used by old Hawaiians and Polynesians with this AMAZING after sun moisturizer! Our After Sun lotion can help heal your parched skin damaged by the sun, salt, and wind. Prevent peeling and flaking by using our After Sun lotion before it begins! Seal in that deep dark tan and prevent your tan from fading. Use daily for smoother softer skin year round!

Take the test after purchasing your bottle! On a sunny day, put a band-aid on your arm, apply Maui Babe Browning Lotion on the same arm and expose the arm to direct sunlight for five minutes. Take off the band-aid and see for yourself the contrast.
