Review: Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam 200ml


 I was so excited to receive a full size bottle of the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Light/Medium in my April Her Fashion Box.  Buying Australian made products is important to me and Bondi Sands is a product not only designed by Australians but also made here on our very shores.

I have very fair skin and I don't fake tan a lot but when I do my preferred option is always foam.  I've been using the same foaming fake tanner for the last couple of years and absolutely love it so was skeptical of finding something better.    After exfoliating in the shower and drying off completely I applied the self tanning foam onto the tanning mitt and began rubbing it onto both of my legs.

The first thing I noticed was the smell.  It smells like coconuts.  Not coconuts mixed with fake tan either, actually just coconuts.  This is the first fake tan I've ever used that actually fulfills its promise not to smell like fake tan.  I'm in love already.  The second thing I noticed about this tan was the colour, not even a hint of orange is visible at any stage of the development of the tan.   I left the tan on for about 4 hours before washing it off in the shower and what I was left with was a lovely, absolutely natural, streak free,  light brown colour on my legs.  Because the colour is so natural looking, it'd be hard to tell that I was even wearing fake tan at all.  One coat of the tan lasted about 3-4 days and faded away instead of the awful patchiness you can get after a few days of other tans.

This product delivers on every single one of its promises and has replaced my trusty fake tan I've been using for the last 2 years.  I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out.  RRP $19.95 and $9.95 for the tanning mitt. 

Do you ever fake tan?  I'd love to know your favourite brand?

  3. I really like Dove Summer Glow gradual tanner, but you do have me interested in Bondi Sands. Might look out for it next time.

    1. I've always been a fan of gradual tanners too - less risky :) This is still better in my opinion :)
