Carol's Daughter browning oil is a thick cross between oil and Vaseline made with palm kernel oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter and avocado butter. It smells tropically divine! I immediately think of Hawaiian tropic suntan lotion when I smell the browning oil. It also gives the skin a sexy sheen. I would recommend using this even when your not in the sun to moisturize your skin and make you smell amazing.
The real question is... does this product help you tan? The answer... if used with caution, Yes. Unfortunately for me, being super pale and unexposed to the sun for months, it caused me to burn pretty severely. Than goodness It was just on my back and I was able to cover it up for the remainder of the vacation. I would recommend applying the browning oil after you apply sunblock to prevent burning. If you do not burn easily, you can probably get away with just the browning oil.
