Review: Bondi Sands Tanning Range

Bondi Sands’ tanning range is everywhere! In just a few years the brand has become the main player in the tanning market, and for good reason.

The brand was born from the idea that everyone should have access to salon quality tanning products, and that’s exactly what they’ve done. If you’re not sure where to start with the range, the UNiDAYS crew road tested a few of the products courtesy of Peppermayo.

Bondi Sands Liquid Gold

Ok, we’re going to admit that UNiDAYS HQ were little sceptical when we first used the product. Results aren’t exactly immediate - BUT give it a few hours. We made the mistake of reapplying twice in the first hour, only to notice that the tan had well and truly developed when we got into the shower that evening.

We’d recommend to apply gradually throughout the day to build up to a colour that you’re comfortable with. It’s also great that you can just tan and go, without the need to marinate over night, dirtying up your sheets. We noticed that the tan was a little sticky at first, but this went away after 10 minutes. The solution is coconut scented, and is super strong, which the office was divided about.

Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam

Don’t say we didn’t warn you - this stuff is DARK. The good news is that there’s also dark and light/medium varieties for those who don’t want to (or can’t) go the whole hog.

Gradual Everyday Tanning Milk

If you’re only going to buy one of these products, then we’d recommend this. Less of a milk, and more of a moisturiser, the cream rubs in quickly and evenly. Unlike some gradual tanning moisturisers that take quite a few applications before you start to notice a colour change, results are reasonably fast.

We noticed very little patchy colouring around the knees and ankles, but with that being said, it is super important to exfoliate these areas before you moisturise with the milk!
