I tried this tan as everyone had raved on about it being 'the best fake tan ever!'. It's not. Firstly, I am VERY pale, as in sickly looking pale so I like to look naturally tanned throughout the year with minimal effort. This tan is quite easy to apply and smells nice, like coconuts rather than that awful biscuity smell you usually get. However, that's where the positives end. The tan dried patchy, even though I did everything I could possibly do pre-tan and worked this tan in, it still dried blotchy. I also found that the tan's dried colour (after you wash off) had a weird green undertone, now others may not be bothered by this but on my usually pale skin, it showed up really badly. My tan also wasn't 'dark' like the bottle (and customer pictures) suggested, I don't know how they got it so dark unless they used filters and heaps of layered tan but this definitely is not dark. if you're looking for a shade or two darker than your skin tone, this is good for you but I wanted a bronzed sunkissed look. I gave this two lippies because of the colour guide and smell but I wouldn't repurchase again.

I've been following MakeupAlley for awhile now, especially when seeking to buy some makeup (my personal procrastination favourite)...but I created an account just to share with others how utterly a-m-a-z-i-n-g this product is.Previously, I used St Moritz mousse in dark and was very happy with it, but it did have some downturns (like all fake tanners), so I was just an occasional user as I'm quite lazy with exfoliating, moisturizing, etc. if the result is fading after 2-3 days. With Bondi Sands, I think I'm converted and will be using it on a regular basis from now on.Why? First, while 2 coats of St Moritz did turn me almost into African, I believe it did look a bit unnatural (it wasn't orange, it was just too dark). Personally, I prefer dark tan, but I like to keep it as close as my natural tan when I spend 2-3 weeks on sun. 2 coats of Bondi Sands foam in dark do exactly that - colour is beautiful, bronze, dark enough, but not chocolate dark. (Thus, although I can recommend it with all my heart, those who want The Darkest Possible look, you might want to try something else)Application was easy, but really all foams are if you know what you're doing. A mitt is a must, whatever brand you have. Also, an old face brush might come handy for blending small areas like face, hands, feet, but I just used a mitt all over and was perfectly even.Smell...it's ok, smells of coconut at first, later on you can still smell that biscuity fake tan smell, but its definitely the least smelling fake tanner around.It doesn't dry as quickly, so you might feel sticky a bit for a few hours, but it gives you enough time to blend it perfectly. It does leave a bit of marks until you wash it off, so invest into black linen and pillowcases ;PNow you'll ask - why then this is holy grail? Well, for me, it's all about colour, how long it lasts and how it fades. It's been almost 5 days now since I put it on and it's EXACTLY the same as the first day (my face is a bit faded due to makeup removal stuff and washing it often). But seriously, this thing just fades, does not come off in patches and still I look beautifully even. I moisturized after every shower once a day and I got so many compliments on how my skin looks glowy and healthy.And lastly - price. You get great value for such a product. I'm so happy to find a product that completely mimics my natural tan, is relatively affordable in the long term and looks so natural. Even my boyfriend who previously thought I was insane with my fake-tanning said that he wouldn't ever say this wasn't my natural tan.I just want to bury myself into a pool of Bondi Sands how happy I am!!!

This is my favourite fake tan! I smells amazing, it blends evenly and lasts well! I have recommend this fake tan to everyone. Best value for money and it's an Australian made product, highly recommend!

This tan is great if you want a subtle tan. It went on with ease, wasn't patchy and smells amazing. However for me I like a dark tan and this product doesn't give that. You can't put it on either before going out.

This selftan isn't bad but I have tried better. The scent is quite strong, but does go on evenly. What I don't like is that it takes forever to dry, so does their cream. I will stick to my HAVA Self Tanning Mousse in future.

BEST FAKE TANNER! A lot of "experienced" spray tanners seem to think they know better than everyone else but more than half the time look like orange/Dorito looking peeps. I am yet to meet a spray tanner with a nice bronze tan. So I don't listen to them when it comes to tan. Lol. Bondi is great. It's inexpensive and you get quite a few applications out of each bottle (I tan A Lot by the way!) whenever it's on sale I buy it in bulk. Everyone I have introduced this product to has tried it, loved it and bought it. Great to apply and isn't streaky at all. It's a lovely bronze colour so you don't ever have to worry about looking orange. Love the product, love it's results, love the packaging. I used to get spray tans but after using Bondi I will NEVER go get a spray tan again. If you're looking for a good self tanner, then go Bondi.

when i saw the pictures of this tans before and after picture, i was shocked! i went and bought the tan as soon as it came to the uk. I prepped my skin as i usually would the day before, but i found that it made my skin look dry, scaly, it made my skin itch. Also, i was highly dissappointed when i went to wash the guide colour off and the colour might aswell of fully come off, my skin had gone about one shade darker, if that. Ive never had a problem with any other tan, none have made me itch except from this one! if youre dry i wouldnt recommend this.

As a beautician trained in spray-tanning, I have come across and tried and tested so many fake tans and solutions from mousses and gradual tans....For the price (£15) in the UK, this being at the top end of the price spectrum for a self tanning mousse, I don't think this tan is worth the money at all! First of all, the dark foam isn't dark atall, even after applying 2 coats! After washing off it loses half of its colour anyway so goes even more pale!!! Tan doesn't last long and goes patchy and starts to rub off after about 2 days (even after moisturising daily)Advantages: lovely holiday coconut smell, , looks even when applied and not washed off yet so could go out in public with it just being applied, goes on smoothDisadvantages: quite expensive for what it is, tan didn't show up dark enough, doesn't dry fast so half of it rubs off on clothes! Doesn't last longer than 2 days after washed off!I wouldn't buy this tan again but I had to give it a go, first and last time! the cheaper the tan, the better! I recommend St moriz mousse, £4!
