Maui Babe Browning Lotion Review

When I first found out about Maui Babe it peaked my interest mainly because of its Hawaiian origins. I have been in Hawaii a handful of times on vacation, and I loved it, especially the people there.

Knowing that Maui Babe originated from there gave me a good feeling from the start.

Anyway, more on the product. The main highlights of this product are its completely natural ingredients. If you read through the ingredients you should know most if not all of them. This is unlike some products where it’s a long list including a lot of ingredients that simply sound like they are from another planet.

I like the simplicity of the ingredients. They know what works and they have stuck to that.

When you pour the lotion out of the bottle you will notice it’s brown color. This is mainly because of the included coffee plant extract. This gives you some immediate color that will be particularly noticeable on people who have more fair skin.

The way this lotion works is that you apply it before you want to go tanning in the sun. It will speed up the tanning process because of how the lotion makes the sunlight and UV rays become more attracted to the skin.

It will also have the benefit of keeping the skin moist and hydrated which not only helps your skin but will make your tan appear even more luscious.

While some people may want to apply this only on the skin before tanning, it’s recommended you first apply some sunscreen 10 minutes before. We recommend a lotion with at least an SPF of 10. This is especially important if you are tanning in the middle of the day where the sun is stronger, and the UV index is higher. For more on this check our article – best time to tan outside.

If you aren’t sure what order to do this in – you apply your sunscreen first, let it dry for about 10 minutes then apply the Maui Babe browning lotion after. From there you can then start tanning.

Because the lotion is more oil-based application is smooth and simple. I personally had no issues with skin irritation etc. I imagine due to the natural ingredients and simplicity this should suit most skin types without much or any concern.

It’s worth noting sometimes tanning products have been known to have weird and wonderful smells. Luckily this one I quite like. The main smell that shines through here is the coffee with a mild hint of sweetness. I have heard some friends not being as keen on the smell, but my nose quite enjoyed it.

A know it’s not a big deal for some but I don’t like the packaging of the product. It doesn’t scream quality to me but a more basic look. It’s more in line with their simplicity is best image. If you are planning on giving this as a gift it might not look special, but it really is. Luckily the lotion is great quality and I recommend you give it a go for your next tanning session.

  • Natural ingredients only
  • Good value for money

  • Suitable for most skin types
  • Keeps skin moist and hydrated
  • Uninspiring packaging
  • Smell not to everyone’s liking
