Bondi Sands has slowly built a cult following over the years, proudly using the stereotypical image of bronzed Australians as their selling point.
This has worked as their tans do make you really really ridiculously tan, however more orange than brown.
Their new "liquid gold" tan has been marketed as something of a marvel and luxury item, but for $20 in a plastic spray bottle it doesn't feel luxury or a marvel.
The tan sptritzes on to your skin quite dark, but then when you smooth it out with the tanning mitt you can't see where it has and hasn't been applied! Without practice this left me horribly blotchy becsuse I hadn't paid close enough attention to where I had applied it!
A bonus is that it is a "dry oil" allowing you to get dressed and go on with your life straight away. On the other hand it takes 8 hours to fully develop into the trademark orange brown of Bondi Sands.
This is perfect for those who just like showing that they make an effort but for others on the hunt for a natural tan need to stay away.
