If you haven't heard of Bondi Sandi before, you must have been hiding under a rock. I've been an avid user of self tans for well over 10 years now (not giving my age away at all here) and I would certainly say I'm some what of a seasoned professional in the art of self tan now.
If you search for the Bondi Sands tanning range online, you'll really struggle to find a bad review and that just says it all, the internet is a breeding ground for keyboard warriors yet Bondi Sands has held it's own with an array of gleaming reviews.
I was lucky enough to collaborate with this brand on my recent trip to Santorini and, needless to say, I was blown away. I was kindly sent the following:
Self Tanning Lotion - Dark - 200ml
Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk - 375ml
Self Tanning Foam - Dark - 110ml
I also bought the following in Superdrug:
Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk - SPF 15 - 275ml
Everyday Liquid Gold - 270ml
Bondi Sands is an Australian brand (let's face it, who knows Tanning better than the Aussie's) and is owned and made there. The brand is inspired by Australia's well known beach and wanted to make an ultimate tan accessible to everyone. This tan is easily the best tan I have ever used before, and it's safe to say I've used quite a few in my tan. This price tan of this brand is very reasonable, ranging between £10.99 & £17.99 and in all honestly, I would quite happily pay more for these products!
All of the products I tried from Bondi Sands were super easy to apply and they all smelt amazing with a coconut scent which helped you to be whisked you away to sunnier climates and tropical beaches. The tans were extremely natural looking, didn't flake and lasted over a week. The products felt really hydrating and leaves you with super soft, smooth skin and the best thing... the tan dries in a matter of minutes so need to wait around for it to dry! I would recommend applying the Self Tanning Foam and Liquid Gold items with a mitt but the others I wouldn't say it matters, just make sure you wash you hands with warm soapy water afterwards.
It's safe to say Bondi Sands in now my go to self tanner and it's going to be pretty hard for someone else to take this crown. From the colour, to the smell and the price tag - it's a winner all around for me!
So go on, what are you waiting for?! Give it a try for yourself - if you're a self confessed self tan addict or a first timer, this is the tan for you!
