FAKE TAN DIARIES | Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam

Hello Everyone! 

Welcome back to round 2 of the fake tan diaries! My first blog post was about the much loved St. Tropez self tanning mousse, this time I've gone for the Australian made and produced Bondi Sands. I've heard some fantastic reviews on this product and was eager to give it a go myself - I picked this up from Superdrug for £14.99 for 200ml (currently on sale for £9.95!) so a lot cheaper than a bottle of St. Tropez - and in my opinion better!

My bestie and fellow blogger Emma (LWFS) had recommended this to me as it comes in different shades - light to medium and dark. I obviously being the ghost I am picked up the light to medium and have been loving it ever since!

The product itself is incredibly easy to blend, build and apply leaving you with a gorgeous sun kissed tan. It has a colour guide in the formulation making it easy to see any areas you may have missed or need a bit of extra blending, I've never had a problem with the end result and I have always had a good all over even tan (except for when I got drunk and decided to fake tan.. error!) I normally use around 2-3 pumps on each area of my body and apply in circular motions, if you do want to deepen the tan you can wait 30 minutes and darken with an extra few pumps - this is great as i find my legs never seem to take the colour as much as the rest of my body!

I applied this after completing my standard fake tanning routine, exfoliate, shave and pop moisturiser on the areas which seem to go a little darker (elbows & knees!) it dries really quickly and doesn't leave you feeling sticky, meaning you can put loose dark clothes on soon after! The colour which developed was a beautiful even bronzed shade which didn't leave me feeling orange. The tan itself is enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera which made the tan last for well over a week before needing a good scrub and re-apply. I would also recommend you moisturise every day with a non-oil or fragrance based moisturiser as I did find it pro-longed the tan (I use the Clinique, Deep comfort body butter). I even used this product on holiday in Mexico.. Just be careful you don't sleep on anything white as it can stain bedding and clothing!

My only con, is that the smell is not ideal! WHEN, will be able to have a non-biscuit fake tan!?!

Before and after using the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Medium / Light

I'm really impressed with this tan, I would give it a 9/10 (lost a point for the smell!) I really love this product and have already re-purchased and moved onto my second bottle, I really want to try their gradual tan milk next as I've heard fantastic things about this.

Keep your eyes peeled as my next installment will include the Freshly Baked London Tan Mousse in Sweet October.
