After emailing Bondi Sands and explaining the purpose of the request, the company decided that they would send me two of their products to test and review. The two products that were sent to me were the Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk and the newly launched Self Tanning foam in Ultra Dark. These products retail for £11.99 for the Gradual Tanning Milk and £17.99 for the Self Tanning Foam.
Gradual Tanning Milk
The Gradual Tanning Milk is great product to give a subtle tan that you would want to build upon gradually. I have only ever used one other gradual tanner and I can honestly say that this has now become my go to moisturising gradual tanner. Although the product is a both a moisturiser and a tanner I still like to use a tanning glove to ensure that the colour is not transferred onto the palms of my hands. The milk I found is super hydrating and gives a subtle glow each day. The Gradual Tanner retails at £11.99 and is definitely generous in size. This product does give a subtle glow and can be applied everyday which will help to build the colour.
As the Self-Tanning Foam is in the shade Ultra Dark I only kept the tan on for around two hours. This however, did give a slight tan and due to this I do feel that if the tan had been kept on for the full recommended amount of time the tan would develop into a darker tan. The colour guide was excellent on this tan which helps to give an idea of where the tan had been placed before it needs to be rinsed off. When using the Self-Tanning Foam I also used the Everyday Gradual Tanner in order to build the colour slightly. This worked well and it was very useful to be able to build the colour in the morning and in a couple of hours be ready for an event.
Both of the products had a great smell to them and did not have that typical ‘Fake Tan’ smell to it.
Self-Tanning Foam in Ultra Dark is £17.99
Everyday Gradual Tanner in Medium is £11.99
