Bondi Sands | Light/Medium Self Tanning Foam

When my friend Alice told me that Bondi Sands was now being sold in Superdrug, I immediately wanted it. I spent a few weeks until payday looking at their instagram to convince myself it would be a great decision if I bought it! Especially since it's now coming up to summer and I would like to bare my legs without feeling self-concious. When I have tan on I feel my cellulite shows up less which is great and I feel so much more confident. For just under £15 you can't really go wrong!

It was such a dream to apply, I just squirted a few pumps of the mousse onto my mitt and started using circular movements, it blended in really easily. I did get some streaks here and there but I think that was from rubbing too hard, I easily got rid of any streaks. I went to bed in the tan and woke up with extremely stained bed sheets and pyjamas, which was a small price to pay for a wonderful tan. It smelt like cocoa butter and ever so slightly of coconut. Even when I washed the guide colour off I was left with a gorgeous bronzed glow.

The main thing for me really is that the tan looks natural still even though it's out of a bottle. This is the most natural looking tan I've used so far, I usually have the classic 'you've been tangoed' comments but with this one no one said anything except that it looked really nice. It's a lovely light brown colour and at no point does it look orange. The first time I wore it, I exfoliated it off after just over a week so I could use my normal foundation. The second time, I left it on and it only started going patchy when it was coming up to a fortnight! Which is the longest a tan has ever stayed on me looking lovely. This is definitely my new favourite self tan.
