BIG CLAIM BUT……..
*Bondi Sands is my favourite self tanning brand of the year so far!
I know these love affairs with beauty products can swap and change, but every product I have tried I have absolutely adored.
I was introduced to the brand when I received a PR Parcel, and trialled and reviewed their Self Tanning Foam last year.
I have basically become obsessed with their self-tan mousse so much so, I have bought it countless times since. I can not be without it!
Bondi Sands have recently launched a new self tanning foam called: *Bondi Sands Aero Aerated Self Tanning Foam. The brand claims that the foam is lighter that air, and develops into a deep, natural and hydrating tan.
The appearance of the product and claims are really similar to their original Self-Tan Mousse and I was excited to trial it and see if it was similar, or if possible, better?
The packaging is sleek and eye catching. You pop the lid off and there is a mousse dispenser. You are advised to shake the bottle and apply the mousse on a tanning mitt.
The mousse is a light brown shade and it has a strong fresh coconut scent.
The mousse feels lightweight and hydrating on the skin, and when applied to the skin there is a light tan colour immediately.
This aspect helps you to apply it flawlessly, and helps you to spot any bits you may have missed.
Immediately the skin has a light golden tan, this then develops around 2 shades darker overnight.
I do find this version to be a lot less lighter on the skin. It also absorbs a lot quicker.
The mousse feels hydrating and nourishing, and it doesn’t feel sticky or drying, which is always a winner!
This version is a lighter shade than the original, and I apply over two evenings to achieve a golden dark tan.
But this does not bother me in the slightest, as I would rather have to pop on another layer ,than the tan be to dark.
I find the product fool proof. Not once have I woken to find a patchy, streaky tan. Nor have I had orange hands, orange knees or the dreaded white strip down the side of my arm.
(I ALWAYS seem to miss a certain spot on my arm and it drives me insane)
- A flawless glowing natural golden tan.
- No biscuit scent, just a light fresh coconut aroma.
- It does not transfer onto clothing or bedding.
- It is easy to apply and dries in a couple of minutes.
- It develops evenly, no need to worry about streaks or patches! Hallelujah!
- The formula is hydrating and nourishing.
- It fades evenly and is easy to remove with a light exfoliator.
Tanning is tricky business and I understand why many people shy away from it.
If it doesn’t work out well, oh dear. It can look like you have bathed in a tub of KFC gravy.
Never a good look.
But Bondi Sands have really nailed their self-tan mousse products.
I adore both of their self-tan mousses, and feel this new addition is really similar. There are slight differences. The mousse is a lot less dense and it absorbs in record time. But in all honesty, I adore them both!
From a self-tan novice to newbie, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.
