As it is coming towards summer and the sun is finally making an appearance, it can only lead to one thing. I need to fake tan! I have very pale skin and I hardly get a tan even when on holiday. Which I don't mind but I think it is nice to sometimes add a little bit of bronze to your skin, I find that it can boost my confidence and make an outfit look even better.
I have tried a lot of fake tans in the past like Garner, L'Oreal, Solait..... (list goes on). I have always wanted to try out St Tropez but I just can't justify the money on a student budget. I have read a lot of good reviews on the Bondi Sands fake tan but it is an Australian brand, that wasn't available in the UK.
However, Bondi Sands has finally made it to the UK and is stocked in Superdrug! I don't know about you but this makes me very happy. As soon as I found out I headed straight to Superdrug, there was no stopping me. My local store is very small and didn't stock all their products but it did have the Bondi Sands Mousse in light/ Medium that is perfect for me. Previously I hadn't tried a Mousse, I usually go for lotions. But I can officially say I am a changed women! This product is perfect; I cannot express how amazing this fake tan is for the price it is at. Its slightly more expensive compared to other high street brands but it is still cheaper than St Tropez.
The product is so easy to apply, without it looking unnatural or streaky. I use a mitt and two pumps of fake tan per section, then use circler motions to spread the tan over my body. I have used it on my face as well, and it didn't break me out which is another bonus. For a subtle look you can leave it on for just 1 hour, or leave it on for 6 hours for a deeper looking tan. I have done both and it provides a great pay off! I would say that the Bondi Sands fake tan gives a more olive colour pay off, so none of this orange Oompa Loompa after look.
I think my hunt for the perfect fake tan is finally over, I am now heading to Superdrug to stock up for summer.
