When I first saw this product being advertised, it didn’t even occur to me that it might be a bit gimmicky. I was expecting amazing things from the Bondi Sands Self-Tan eraser, because of how amazing all their other products are. I bought this when it first came out, when it was on the introductory offer in Boots and I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for it.
The Bondi Sands Self-Tan eraser claims to ‘erase’ tan off and to avoid exfoliation by only needing to use a washcloth. You apply it five minutes before showering in warm water and gently exfoliating with a washcloth.
I found that even following all of the recommended instructions, my tan never fully comes off and I’m often left with random patches all over my body. I wouldn’t expect this when a product claims it will ‘erase’ self tan off. I’d say that their recommended way of taking your tan off with a washcloth, only takes off the top layer and you still have to exfoliate the tan off. Until I used a white washcloth, I didn’t notice that any tan was actually coming off, and even then it was only a small amount!
I also found when applying this that if you have any sore patches of skin, like I did on my hands, it stings and you can’t wait to shower it off five to ten minutes later. All in all, I wouldn’t repurchase this as it barely helps remove tan and I still have to take time to exfoliate it all off.
