I've never tanned with an oil, my preferred tan would probably be a mousse simply because of the ease of application. So, where I am used to easy application tans, I was a little dubious as to how well I was going to manage with the Tan Organic oil! Nevertheless, like a good sport, I've given it a go anyway.
The directions state to sprinkle a little amount onto the mitt, not going overboard, and apply to the skin then allow to soak in.
It was quite difficult because with the mousse tans or other liquid tans I've used before, you can usually see a tan stain, making it easier to see any points you missed. But I carried on regardless and applied the oil to my whole body.
The instructions say it takes 8 hours to develop properly, so I set about with my evening and just waited to see what it looked like in the morning.
I will point out that it took a fair while for me to feel like the oil had soaked in and I couldn't work out whether it hadn't dried, or if it was just a bit greasy. I think it just takes a while to dry as it doesn't have an artificial drying agent like a lot of other tans.
This tan markets itself as having no smell, and it doesn't have the traditional fake tan smell. Initially it was a bit zesty or fruity when I was applying and when it was developing I could definitely smell something, but I couldn't work out what it was...
After 8 hours of developing, the tan turned out a really nice, deep tan colour. I had a few streaks here and there, but that was down to my application I think, not the product itself. Once I've got the hang of it, I reckon it will be a flawless, even colour.

If you're after a deep colour and have a fair it of experience in oil or liquid tanning, plus a lot of time to let it develop, then I'd definitely recommend Tan Organic Self Tanning Oil for the gorgeous colour.
You can pick up a 100ml bottle of Tan Organic Self Tanning Oil from Superdrug for £24.99.
