I was looking for a self tanner, because tanning beds are outrageously expensive and I don't see a change in my skin tone after using them, plus my skin is very fair and I get sun poisioning almost everytime im in the sun. So needless to say, self tanner was my only alternative. My mom had a little bit left in her old bottle of this lotion and I put it on before bed, woke up in the morning and notcied a durastic change in my skin color, then I went to go buy a new bottle and used it almost everyday for 4 days, and I had an amazing natural looking tan. Ive been busy with work and haven't had the time to use it so its faded out now, and now I can see the huge difference between my own pale legs and the beautiful risk free natural looking tan I get out of a bottle!!
most amazing lotion EVER. i have the dryest skin you'll ever see and i'm allergic to most lotions on the market. i went to walmart a week ago, looking for my usual otion potion xtreme tanning intensifying lotion. unfortunately, they did not have any in stock, but the similar bottle caught my eye. i was hesitant to buy this because i wanted lotion to use to progress my indoor tanning, but i gave it a shot. for $5, i was surprised and very pleasantly so. i used it before the tanning bed and before going to bed at night. i woke up to a beautiful golden tan i would not have got had i found the ocean potion lotion. i began using the lotion daily, multiple times a day for only three days prior to my graduation, and by the night of my graduation i was glowing. all my friends asked if i'd been hitting the tanning bed or been to the beach and said i looked amazing with some color. my ankles, wrists, and between my fingers did slightly stain too dark, but i scrubbed it off easily. the application was flawless and very smooth and even. the smell is very pleasant and tropical as far as i'm concerned. the morning after my first use, i did smell the self tanning product in the lotion on my body, and a shower fixed it immediately without ridding me of any color. overall, you get alot of the product for such a low price. i am a very plae person anturally and the only downfall i found with this lotion is it is a bit heavy on the face, and my face would not absorb it, it just kinda sat on the top and felt kind of like sweat. my face is significantly lighter than my body, but makeup masks that and its probably just me. it tanned the tops of my feet and hands great, which are my other problem areas. overall i adore this lotion. it makes my skin sooo smooth and soft, which i never thought was possible. i love this produt, and would reccomend it to anyone who is afraid of tanning or is unable to tan. it looks very natural and is incredibly inexpensive. try it, you won't be disappointed.
This is by far the BEST tanning lotion I've ever used & I've tried several others. There is a faint scent when you first put it on, but after it dries (I put it on before bed after my shower) there is no smell the next morning. I can see results after one application & after two it's even better! I have naturally light olive skin & the color I get from this lotion is very natural looking. Here are the ingredients (the ones listed above aren't right):
Water, Propylene Glycol, Coconut (Cocos Nucifera) Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Stearate, Dihydroxyacetone, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Hempseed (Cannabis Sativa) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Erythrulose, Ubiquinone, Butylene Glycol, PEG-8, Bupleurum Falcatum Extract, Caffeine, Coenzyme A, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil, Jojoba (Buxus Chinensis) Oil, Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus) Seed Oil, Olive (Olea Europaea) Oil, Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) Oil, Green Tea (Camellia Oleifera) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Sodium Gluconate, Potassium Sorbate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance, BHT, Citric Acid.
I have only seen this available at Walmart & it costs around $5 + change. I've already suggested this to my friends & my mom uses it & LOVES it. My skin is so glad I found this - no more tanning beds or sun baking!
This is the best self tanning lotion ever (: i'm pretty pale and have a hard time finding a self tanner that doesn't turn me orange. This lotion makes me look like I have a natural tan which I love. It smells amazing too! alot of sunless tanning lotions have a gross smell to them but this one smells great. It was pretty cheap too and the bottle lasts for a long time too. Overall this is a great sunless tanning lotion and i don't think I'll ever let this one go (=
I was planning on buying the Hawaiin Tropics Island Radiance Creme but I saw this was cheaper and you get twice as much product. I'm so glad I did! It works great Ive been using this for about five days now. I put it on only my upper body and not my legs to see if it really worked and then I could compare. Five days later I look like I have a natural glow like I've been tanning for a few days or something. I haven't use a self tanner in ten years so I guess I was kinda expecting an orange glow like I used to get. This looks very natural. I will definitly repurchase!
So I bought this because I was so pasty white after this winter. I was in Wlamart and came across a Malibu Tan Hem Lotion Self-tanner. I hate spray self tanners and usually only stick with lotions because they're much more fool-proof and really it's really easy to get even coverage. It's also a plus that it's a gradual tanner. So far I'm on day two and I already have a really nice glow. This is a firming, moisturizing and self tanning lotion all in one. Also, what I didn't know until I got home and read the back of the bottle, It contains DHA which is an Omega-3 fatty acid which is GREAT for you. So far, I am loving this product. The only thing I don't like is the smell. I have a really sensitive nose and can smell this stuff on me all day. Al in all, it's a great, healthy and cheap alternative to tanning.
I applied this lotion in the morning after a shower and only smelled a *hint* of self-tanner scent later in the day. Of course this is probably because there was hardly any self-tanner in there. I received no color at all, except in random patches on my skin (around my belly button, on my knees). Horrible and so annoyed I bought three bottles of the stuff (there is no WalMart by me so when I was on vacation I stocked up).
i just bought this the other night at walmart, i noticed lately i was looking very white since summer is over. and i usually would just go tanning in a bed but when i get older i dont want to be super wrinkly and stuff, so im going to try to stay out of the sun and tanning beds. but every other self tanner ive used left me streaky and orange, the one specific kind i remember was by dove i think. but this stuff is great. it smells delicious, not that icky tanner smell. and its giving me a great even glow. i've only used it the past 2 days. i just get a shower and put it on afterwards. it doesnt take it very long to dry either. i put it on, do my makeup, then im ready to get dressed and go. im like a see through white usually lol but now i have a great glow going on. i just didn't like how my face was soooo much whiter then my body, so i just put some on my face and i'll see how that works out then write more about it. but hopefully its good. i do really wish they made this come in darker shades, and for a regular face mosturizer, but ohh well im still happy with it.
I bought this product last Summer and I absolutely loved it!! However, around the same time I used it I started breaking out in hives and my boyfriend convinced me I was allergic to peanuts!! After reading the other comments I realized it was this stuff all along. So ya, I'm allergic to it, but it's the only thing that gives me a natural glow. I still use it, but at the same time I have to use zyrtec (allergy pills)!!
This is a great gradual self tanner except for the fact that it caused me to break out in a very itchy rash everywhere I applied it! I love the fact that it is gradual and that it does not have a color guide. It does NOT smell like practically every other DHA containing thing does. It dries pretty fast, moisturizes pretty well, and the color was a light, believable golden tan. I was really happy with this early on the second day, but by mid-day I was starting to itch. I didn't associate it with this self-tanner, so I applied it again the next morning (it smells good enough to apply in the morning and wear out in public throughout the day and not worry about reeking of fake bake). By the end of the third day I was covered in a very itchy raised rash...thank God I didn't apply it to my face! I stopped using it and the rash went away. When I gave it another try this week, boom, the same rash is back. Rats, because other than that I was really happy with it. Overall I'd highly recommend it if you're not sensitive at all and your skin can tolerate it. For sensitive girls, beware! Love the color, scent, moisturizing...hate the very itchy rash! I have seen others that have had this reaction too, so hopefully the company will address it and reformulate. I just wish I knew what ingredient I was allergic to in it.
