I love sunshine and I love a beach holiday and the tan that comes with it, but there is trying to get a tan and there is frying your skin.
My other half purchased this product for a holiday in Spain as he was trying to speed up his tanning and I tried it out one day, that was the only time I ever used it.
The oil comes in a 150ml brown bottle with a spray top. It can be a bit tricky to apply, just spray it all over your body and then rub it in as you would a sun lotion but I find the spray bottles very tricky to use cause once you got some oil or lotion on your hands it's not very easy to spray as your hands are slippery. So either spray yourself all over with clean hands and then rub it in or if you can get someone to help you with applying this oil than that would be really handy.
The oil smells very much of chemicals I find, it's not nice but not hugely unpleasant either.
Due to the nature of the product, of course it leaves your skin very oily. That is to be expected and I really did not like it. It's not worth it feeling all slippery and slimy just for an extra bit of tanning.
It does of course offer protection from UVA and UVB rays and depending on the SPF it'll offer more or less protection. I did not burn whilst using this product so the protection works well, but I didn't find I tanned any more than whilst using a normal sun lotion.
Overall the product does not feel very nice as you end up all oily, it doesn't smell very nice and for the extra bit of frying to enhance your tan you get out of it I don't think it's worth it feeling uncomfortable for an entire day on the beach or by the pool.
I would recommend stick with a sun lotion that will also give you the protection this product offers and you will feel a lot more comfy in your own skin and enjoy your holiday more!
