Product Review- Bondi Sands Tanning Foam in Dark

Holy tan, this stuff is better than butter melting over warm toast on a cold morning. After using this tanning foam I am completely Bondi Sands converted. This is quite a lengthy review to what I normally write but try to read right to the end because it's worth it!

 Bondi Sands tanner for starters is very reasonably priced. I purchased this for only $19.99 for a 200.0 ml bottle which is about half the price of many other top brand tanning lotions such as St Tropez. It also has the scent of coconuts , I'm quite certain it's the same smell in all of their tanning products, which is my all time favourite smell. 

I purchased the shade dark because I'm a bit of a tanning nut and medium or light just doesn't do the job for me. The dark shade gives a very nice deep tan with one layer, and after two layers (which is what I normally opt for) you get really quite a deep bronzed tan without looking orange or streaky. I could tell that this tan wouldn't turn me orange when I washed it off my hands and green colouring came out of the brown foam. The green undertone in a tanning lotion is key if you have olive-toned skin like I do, simply because olive-toned skin has undertones of yellow and green so the tan is going to look very natural on the skin...confusing? Don't stress too much about it, just keep in mind that without a green undertone your skin is likely to turn orange, resembling that of an oopma loompa. 

Once applied this tanning foam doesn't feel massively sticky which I find a lot of tanners to do, especially J Bronze tanning foam, and dries fully within around 30 minutes. I usually just apply this after a shower at night time, wait 30 minutes and then hop in to bed and wake up with naturally looking tanned skin. 

Lastly, Bondi Sands tanning foam in the shade Dark lasts for a very impressive amount of time. After I've applied two coats, I'll find myself still tanned by the end of the week despite the fact I shower daily. It's vital to keep showers short and not too hot, and to remember to moisturise morning and night in order to lengthen the life of your tan. 

I love Bondi Sands tanning foam and will 100% repurchase. Bought from Priceline, an incredibly cheap tanning product for what it's worth, smells amazing and produces a beautiful, deep and natural looking tan. Not to mention it's an Australian product...the little Aussie inside of me squeals with pride.
