I've always been a little cautious of tanning oils, i thought they'd just amplify the sun onto my skin, leaving me with an embarrassingly harsh (and sore) sunburn, which means i've never really stayed in the sun long enough with the oil to see if it works. but today i stayed in the sun for hours because i was prepared to cop the sunburn.
Holy moly- the parts i missed (whoops) got sooo burnt, but the parts i had the oil on tanned beautifully, no burn, and my skin is hydrated and healthy! came home and bought my second bottle! love love love it
