Has Anyone Ever Used or Heard of....

Recommended Posts

I can't be sure of what exactly the bottle looked like, but I'm almost positive it was Maui Babe. I did a search for Maui Babe on Ulta's website & it came back that they carry it, but only in the stores. So, I'm not 100% sure, but if you have an Ulta near by, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to check (at the very least it's an awesome store, so it won't be a wasted trip.)

I called an Ulta store after I saw the post and they claim that they carry it. Perhaps it is in a different bottle for that store. I asked for it by name and the girl went to look for it and confirmed they had it. I am going to stop by tomorrow or Wednesday. I will give it a smell since it is supposed to smell like coffee and let everyone know.

I have used countless bottles of Maui Babe, I have always bought it at Longs drug or ABC stoe in Maui. It works AMAZING, it seriously smells so good, like coffee and brown sugar you will want to eat it.

 

However. I am not sure if it is good for fair skin.I am medium skinned and I can only use it after I have a base tan and for like 1 or 2 hours outside. For instance one time at the end of our vaca I wanted to get really dark, put it all over fell asleep from prob 3 -6 and was very burned. I do use over a light sunsceen (8 or 15) and it works the best for me.

 

They also make an awesome awesome awesome after sun lotion, that makes your tan last longer and if you do burn less likely to peel. And the smell if so tropical and heavenly.

So after reading this I ran to Ulta after class and they have Maui Babe. The same bottle that I just ordered from Amazon that was fulfilled by Maui Babe co. and cost $21 + $5 s/h censored.gif was $13.50 in Ultasmile29.gif Oh well. But, I did use it in the medium turbo stand up tanner and I am definitely darker. I read that there is one for tanning beds but it was more expensive and I do not lie down on the beds anyway. All the positive feedback made me run out and buy and I'm glad I did! Thanks guys!

I just got back from Ulta and bought some!!

 

It is the same bottle and label on the maui site. The 8 oz was 13.50ish and then I also bought the bottle for Tanning Salons, much more expensive at $28.00.

 

Questions for those who use this, do you use the regular one in the beds?? Does it work out good, should I return the Tanning Salon one?

 

Thanks so much!

I read on the website that the original formula is not good for tanning beds because the mineral oil messes up the acrylic on the beds. Safflower oil is not supposed to mess things up.

The original formula has mineral oil in it? Mineral oil isn't very good for your tan from what I've read, and it definitely screws up the acrylics. Your salon owner will be very pissed if you use it indoors. :-) Also, if you are using a sunless tanner to help along your natural tan, mineral oil will make it streak and flake off. Mineral oil seems moisturizing when you first put it on, but it doesn't actually moisturize your skin. It just puts a layer between you and the elements, so that your skin doesn't lose as much of the moisture it actually has.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
