Skin irratation

After years of using fake tans I thought I'd treat myself to the Australian gold bondi sands liquid gold with coconut scent £15

I prepared my skin as directed and applied all over, within a few hours our been dried I was very itchy, dry red an blotchy red rashes particularly on the forearms legs and ankles.
To my disappointment hardly a sun kissed tan look hardly no change in my tan either.
Very dissapointed, the irritation lasted the week , I was constantly applying a medicated dry skin moisturiser to soothe my irrated dry skin
Was not worth the money Show details

Not for people with sensitive skin!

The application was easy & I enjoyed the color, however both my little one & I (I didn’t apply it on her but she’s near me often) broke out in a rash. If you have a baby/toddler that likes to snuggle or you have sensitive skin I wouldn’t recommend it. Show details

Quite Impressed

I have very fair skin and have tried various self-tanning products with no success. I saw the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold featured as the number 1 recommended self-tanning product in a magazine, and after reading a few reviews, I thought I'd give it a go.

A nice natural looking tan is what I was after, and it delivered. Easy to apply (I use the mitt), just go easy on dry skin areas.

The only minor negatives for me is it takes a while to dry (about 2 hours) and can feel a little sticky. The smell when applied is quite pleasant although I find that as it develops, it changes a little and gets stronger. In saying that, it's a small price to pay for great colour.

I will absolutely keep using it!! Show details

1 hr still sticky & Developed orange

Bought the foam. Develops very bright orange & dark stained elbows, knees or anywhere slightly dry skin. No guide color but it doesn't stain clothes. Takes ages to dry and feels very sticky & uncomfortable & strong coconut smell but not the fake tan smell. Stays on for a week but just the orange color let's it down unfortunately & drying time. I have fair skin. Have used most tanning products.
10 mins to apply
An hour approximately to dry Show details

Dries skin

The color was amazing and I received many compliments, however I have really dry skin and this product dried it out even more, I was itchy and my skin felt very uncomfortable. I will have to go back to the normal Bondi Sands tan as the Liquid Gold doesn't work well with my skin. Show details

Ok but takes a while to dry

Applying wasn’t bad but definitely had to be careful around the knees and elbows, so the tan would be even. Drying took ages, maybe around 2hrs. The tan turns out good but the mousse is definitely quicker and easier to use.

Turned Green after use

After trying this product, my skin turned Green. This is the second time i used it, as I thought maybe i did something wrong the first time. I followed instructions on the bottle, but my skin, still turned Green. I was mortified. I could not go out until the Green faded which took 2 days and 2 showers. Would not recommend it. Also, it does stain your sheets and clothes, regardless what the bottle says. it does stain.

Game changer!

As a religious fake tanner (1-2 times a week) I can’t believe I haven’t discovered this sooner. It has a very light non offensive smell and dries very quickly so you don’t have wait too long before getting dressed. It has a light non sticky feel so you don’t feel gross. Best of all it does not stain bed sheets or clothes. The colour seems green based and gives a nice golden colour. Very easy to rub in with a mit and not streaky. It fades nicely and doesn’t go patchy. Seriously the best fake tan product I’ve ever used!!!

It does sound like it is possibly an allergic reaction. You may need antihistamines to help with the swelling & itching. Maybe use a cold wet face washer on the swollen areas to ser if that gives any relief

Foes that mean I can't use this product in the future?
