The sun is back!
Here in the gorgeous Australian spring that is! Sorry that we’re stealing it for a while, my sweetfaces from the US. But Fall is still cool – YARH, BOOTS WEATHER! SNOODS! NUTELLA FROM THE JAR! COMFORT FOOD ERRTHANG!
So yes, it’s getting to that time of year when I realise that I didn’t do good on the promise to myself, and I break this EVERY SINGLE YEAR.
Me, heading into Winter: “Don’t forget, every single day yo, to moisturise all over! Avoid those gross scaly winter legs and you’ll be all glowing and smooth for summer!”
Me, heading into Spring: “Oops.”
So after some major exfoliation and Body Shop Body Butter slathers morning and nightly, the pins have returned to visible in public status.
And that means FAKE TAN TIME!
It seems nowadays that a new tan is popping up every week and being me, gotta try em all baby. I will test and trial different old faves and new-comers throughout the next few months so as to hopefully save you both the hassle AND the money!
Here’s the first cab off the rank:
Bondi Sands is an Australian made product and they are relatively new to the tanning scene. They have different formulas of tan to suit you – lotion, mousse/foam and spray. I am a HUGE mousse/foam fan myself – dries fast, so easy to apply and quick to blend in.
Being a fair skinned baby, I went ahead and purchased myself the Bondi Sands Light Medium Foam.
The BIGGEST plus for me with this is you can wash it off anytime between 1 – 6 hours after application, depending on how deep you want your tan to be.
I washed mine off in the middle of that range, after three and a half hours. LOVE any tan that has this rapid developing feature, it’s so great for last minute, off-the-cuff summer BBQ’s and events.
Below you can see it freshly applied to just my right leg (left one bare for comparison):
The scent is coconutty awesomeness and just delicious. There is no yucky fake tan smell during or after development which rules, and the colour – well just see for yourself…
Isn’t it amazing?
I LOVE that it is actually light/medium as stated on the bottle – just perfect for every day.
The beautiful light caramel bronze tone suited my skin perfectly – they do have a Dark option in the mousse, lotion and spray but I personally like it subtle. BIG FAN.
I can see this staying up in the top favourite tan spot for a long time – the longevity is far better than most I’ve used in the past and there’s no patchy crocodile fading either, just a gradual nice fade starts after 4 days of wear.
