Most Helpful Positive Review Holy Grail beach item
First let me say I burn. The beach and I dont mix well, irish skin and all. I researched good sunscreen and Sun Bum was top rated. Bought the sunscreen and was pleasantly suprised how I didnt burn. A few days later I was hoping to get a little teany amt of color and still nothing... the sunscreen was working magic. So I was (complaining about my white skin) complementing Sun Bum to another shopper about the brand lol well she was picking up the browning lotion and then handed me a bottle and told me to buy it!
I put my spf on (50) on like the bottle mentions, well it says 15 spf, and then the browning lotion, went down to the beach for 4 hrs, then was amazed how I was tan!
I saw some other reviews but maybe they normally tan. I however do not and this was amazing! I am forever going to be using this because it is that GOOD!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed.
I wanted to love it so much, but I just couldn't because it did not help me get tan any faster. Plus, it was very oily and greasy on so I felt like I needed a shower right away!

2nd time purchase great stuff, adds a nice tone to your natural sun tan.
Similee from Undisclosed
Smells like chocolate & works amazingly for a dark, quick tan! I also use this as a bronzer on my entire body after tanning‚just be careful to let it dry before putting on your clothes or using a towel. Love love love this lotion! :u1F90E:

I always get compliments on my tan and my kid says I smell like chocolate after I use it.
Although I've yet to see
Tanya from Undisclosed
Although I've yet to see the browning results from my Browning Lotion (I've used it three times - 3 to 6hrs each time - I haven't seen a difference yet!), it does smell lovely. However it is pretty greasy and will definitely stain your clothes. But so far has come out of my clothes after a wash.
It actually works.
William from Undisclosed
Repeated applications may be necessary for desired results. I was Really White before use. Have applied 4 times and I now have a very nice tan, without prolonged exposure to the sun. Just 1 hour a day.
smells great not sure if it makes a difference
sam from USA
just like reviews say, wait til sunscreen is dry before applying and make sure to take time to rub It in. it smells great and gives a bronze look but I'm not sure if it made a difference in my color. overall I probably wont purchase again.
Best tan ever!

This product works on me
Small Stuff from W Warwick, RI
I use the product every day now and its best to put it on before getting dress and let it air dry before you do.
Neechie from Los Angeles, CA
I usually put a sunscreen on, let it dry a bit and then put this all over. I always get a great tan when using it. It does also seem to add a bit of a fake tan, but it's just a little and not streaky at all, so I like it. If I don't wash my hands, it will look dark but it washes off, so it doesn't bother me. Smells a bit like cocoa but not too strong IMO
I was very impressed!
Still Love to Tan from Mankato,MN
I have very olive toned skin but since I've gotten older, I found myself turning more orange than brown in the sun. This product has made a huge difference for me! I noticed it after my first use and also noticed that I had a deeper color much quicker than usual. As others have mentioned, the smell and the staining are definite downfalls but the color is worth it to me. I immediately wash my hands with soap and water after applying and it's completely gone.
I have had way better
Terrible from California
After I use this product I look super tan! But than I take a shower and I instantly see it all wash off and I am back to normal, don't buy this it's seriously not worth the money at all
Smells like chocolate
Kay from Michigan
Im currently wearing it for the first time right now and felt the need to add this review. It smells like chocolate and it is very strong of a smell. Also, it slightly adds brown tint to your skin, so your hands turn brown as you rub it in to the rest of your body.
With all the oils in it, I'm going to assume it works, but I just cant get past the smell and coloring of it
Carmellow from Arkansas
I had high hopes for this product. Every time I used it I would put it on my skin 20 minutes before we went out in the sun. It turned me into a human tootsie roll. I don't think my skin took the formula well because it never dried down on my skin.
Better Than Maui Babe
SurferBabeeee from SoCal
yep. I said it. don't come for me before i explain myself! This is SO GOOD. It's cheap, smells amazing, and is perfectly gradual. The reason i'm not a fan of maui babe is because i hate being orange. don't get me wrong, a good sun tan is achievable with both, but this product gives a natural brown/gold tan you couldn't even tell was fake. I literally SWEAR by this. just be careful and put an spf 30 underneath so you get the best results
Jennis from Los Angeles
Love this stuff. I put on some sunscreen, wait for it to dry a bit and then add this. My skin looks tan and stays tan all summer
veroh from IL
I love this, I don't think it makes you darker but it does give you a darker look even if you're tan already. And even if it doesn't make you darker it looks nice , and the ingredients are good for your skin.
Kmmchargue from Texas
Gave me a nice tan and smells good, but paired it with sun bum sunscreen like instructed and it left horrible pilling all over my body which if super gross feeling and made me wonder if it effects the effectiveness of the sunscreen.
One of my favorites!!
maria from michigan
My mom and I bought this to try out because we love the sun bum brand. The scent is strong (I don't mind, I love it!!) It smells kinda like chocolate & coconut. It definitely tanned a little just putting it on and being in the sun made it more so. Other tanning lotions have left my legs very streaky unless rubbed in VERY well which this one doesn't do. I feel like they could've used less plastic in the packaging but that's my only complaint besides the price but you're paying for quality.
Worth the money!
Rude from Don't worry about it.
I'm very fair skinned and it takes me along time to build up some color. But this stuff works fast 3 days in the sun and I've got a nice tan going on. My legs have never been tan idk why they just don't..but this stuff worked! It will come off if your swimming this is more like lay out on a towel in your backyard type stuff. But it does work even for pasties like myself. :)
My new favorite outdoor lotion
Ash from Pennsylvania
Love this outdoor tanning lotion. It really works to get a tan quickly. I have sensitive skin and had no adverse reactions. My new favorite!!
ILuvThePens from Washington, Pa
This is like a bronzer. It's dark in color. Be careful gets in your swimwear. I guess it makes you tan quick. I'm dark yo begin with so I didn't see much difference.
