They say you can’t buy happiest… But it does come in a liquid gold bottle!
When it comes to sunless tanner you know Bondi Sands are going to get it right every time so when they launched their Liquid Gold I obviously had to try it!
This is my new favourite sunless tanner without doubt. The Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Tanning Foam for me is just what I am looking for in a bottled tan – Plus the smell is lush! I know this is a bit taboo, this is one of those things that everyone is going to have a different opinion on so try a few different sunless tanners and see which ones have a scent you can handle. If the smell of a product bothers me … I don’t use it. Enriched with Argan Oil and infused with the scent of coconut, this hydrating self-tanning foam will develop into a golden tan that is touch dry in not very long at all. They claim it drys in seconds, I wouldn’t say that is the case, but within 5-10 minutes you can re apply clothing no problem.
Personally I like to apply before bed and really let the tan develop over night. Love waking up to that! They say you can layer it for darker results, but I find the colour is just right for me. 3 days in I apply the Liquid Gold Dry Oil to extend the life of the tan. Without doing this I get a good 7 days from it, but with using the oil it can be nearer 2 weeks. For me it’s not so orange based which some tanning products can be.
My favourite formula for tanning is probably a mousse because I find it the easiest to work with (make sure you get a mitt), but I was so curious when I saw the oil formula and it didn’t disappoint. It is really nourishing, something that is essential for prolonging the life of your tan. The oil can also be applied by itself the colour is a gorgeous golden tan and it develops over time, I’d say if you like a dark tan then you’d need to apply this twice, but if you just want a healthy glow then one application is more than enough.
I find when it comes to removal ready for fresh tanning the Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser is great and there is a lot less skin scrubbing required than normal! Simply apply 5 minutes before getting into the shower or bath and then the tan will just wash off. There is still some scrubbing to be done particularly on the dryer areas, but it makes life so mush easier.
Have you tried the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold products? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
