NEW SS17 RELEASE | Bondi Sands ULTRA Dark Fake Tan*


Happy #FakeTanThursday gang! And what better way to celebrate this emotional, game changing day of the week than with news of a fab new Bondi Sands product - which will take you from Pale Gail to Tanned Tracey [it probably sounds more glam to describe Tanned Trace as something more along the lines of a bronzed beach goddess, but I've committed to the names now] in a matter of hours. Yes, your eyes aren't deceiving you - Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Self Tanning Foam* is here and available to purchase in the UK; so drop everything and get down to Boots / Superdrug immediately

I love Bondi Sands' fake tan - especially their foams. I find them so easy to apply and I get consistently natural - yet sunkissed - results with all of their products. There's no orange Wotsit legs / Donald Trump-face blunders with Bondi Sands; the end look is always cool toned and natural looking, rather than a warm, firey toned disaster [soz not soz Donald!] I also love the coconut infused fragrance - it's so much of a step up from the 'eau de biscuit' phase we all went through with fake tan.

Applying Bondi Sands Ultra Dark follows pretty much the exact same steps I detailed in my last over-enthusiast post declaring my love for these guys [you can have a read here] but to recap, in order to get the best possible results from your fake tan experience, you should follow these steps:

1. Prep prep prep 
Make sure you're nice & exfoliated pre-#FakeTanThursday and that there's no residual moisturiser / other skincare products lingering on your skin. You don't want to end up in Patch Town or Streak City, so don't forget this step!

2. Get ur tan on
Get pumping on that bottle girl - it's tan time! Time for the magic to happen. I usually apply my fake tan with plastic gloves, but Bondi Sands sent me one of their tanning mitts* which is one of the best I've tried in my adult life, so I'd recommend that too. 

Remember to be careful when applying tan to your hands, feet, knees and elbows. Only use residual foam from your mitt on these areas - if you go in too hard, you could end up having a shocker. Like that time I dyed my hands a deep mahogany shade and had to scrub them with bleach for hours.

3. Have a nap
Solid life advice right there. For all situations. But in all seriousness, you need to leave your tan on to develop for around six hours; so you're best off doing it before you go to bed for the night, before showering the stain off in the morning. The longer you leave it, the deeper your tan will be. 

Oh and if you're looking to become the ULTIMATE Tanned Tracey [perhaps ahead of a holiday, hot date or night out with the girls] apply another coat of Bondi Sands around 30 minutes after your initial application. But with this product already being Ultra Dark, you probably won't need to.

Here's my #BondiSands Ultra Dark before and after shots - you can defo tell the difference, right?! I've gone from Casper the [Un]Friendly Ghost to a rich shade of mahogany that my Ikea furniture would be proud of. I absolutely love it - the deepest, most consistent tan I've tried to date. And it's a cool toned tan, which avoids any of that 'looking-like-an-oompa-lumpa' kinda business. I'd go as far as to say this is my most favourite fake tan of all time.

Before...

After...

My obsession with Bondi Sands grows and grows - I have been so, so impressed with every single product I've tried from their range [and let's face it, that's been the majority of their collection] and they're a brand I'd definitely recommend to everyone and anyone; regardless of your experience levels when it comes to achieving a professional glow from home. This is the best one so far for me, the deeper colour is EVERYTHING and it applies so evenly.
