"Application, coverage and odour all get a thumbs up, but longevity let it down"
Bondi Sands is a self tanning brand founded in Australia. The product I have chosen to use is their Self Tanning Foam (Dark). It is described online as a 'lightweight self tanning foam...flawless finish...enriched with aloe vera and coconut...streak free.' So, it sounds good, I am excited to try it out.
How does it work?
So as it goes, I'm a pasty white individual in general who just burns in the sun and then returns to my original shade of unpigmented Irishness. Therefore self-tanning is a necessary ritual for any occasion.
The coconut scent, as advertised, was faint, if not there at all, but it did not have as much of a 'fake tan smell' as others.
As for longevity, this is where I was a little disappointed. I applied the tan on a Friday night and found it had worn off a lot by Monday morning. I would have expected to get another day or two out of it at least.
I would definitely use the product again as it is hard to find a shade you are happy with and a tan that does not have that distinctive 'tan odour,' but I would most definitely be bringing the bottle with me if I was going away for a few days.
