Liquid gold Bondi sands
I am not allergic to anything and this is the first time ever I’ve used anything and got a painful Rash from it! I tried it
Once more a month later and got the same rash ...
Purchased in December 2019 for $20.00.
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!!
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
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.
Best tan for dry skin
If you must use tan like myself and struggle with eczema this is absolutely my favourite tan! It doesn’t bunch in dry patches and is 10/10 I absolutely love it!
gives allergic reaction
i really liked the result of this product, however i have received a severe rash all over my body little red itchy bumps my eyelids were swollen red and peeling so i don't think i can use it again.
It actually works!
When I first bought this I did not think it worked at all, but after a rushed application and leaving areas undone, I could definitely see a difference between my skin colour. It is much lighter than actually tanning obviously, but does add nicely on top of fake tan to keep it from looking splotchy. Has a very strong smell however which can be annoying, and can sometimes take a while to dry so avoid wearing light coloured clothes but it does totally work! If possible I might've given this a 3.5 rating just because it really does work but its ju...st the smell and the drying which bring it down. It's also really quick to apply but definitely use a mitt! It's just the drying time which is a tad annoying. It also doesn't develop straight away so it can be hard to see a difference but just be patient and it will be there. Also, it can be a bit hard to see where you have applied it because your skin kind of absorbs it so just be sure to be thorough.
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.
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!!!
The mousse is way better
I have always loved the Bondi Sands mousse but decided to try this for something different. I am glad it was on special when I bought it because I won't be using it again! It was messy to use - lots of residual spray (had to stand in the shower to save my bathroom!). I found it difficult to spray in some areas of your body because you have to hold the bottle upright when spraying (i.e hard to do that back of your legs etc). I also found you need to use A LOT to get the same level of colour as the mousse (used 1/4 of the bottle just doing my leg...s, arms and chest). It says on the bottle that it is instant and you can dress & go out as normal. I wouldn't recommend this as it still has a fake tan smell and feels a little sticky. As for the colour, it could be my imagination but it seems orangey. I will stick with the mousse thanks.
I've always used the bondi sand dark tanning foam but thought I've give the liquid gold a go. It comes in a stylish black and gold bottle, with a convenient pump. Must apply with the bondi sand tanning mitt as it stains easily. The tan was streak free, fast drying and smelt amazing. Nil organizeness. It gave a nice natural looking tan in less than 15 minutes. The tan lasted approx 5 days, and no shower was required after applying.
Good product to start out with.
I do like the Bondi Sands range of products. The Liquid Gold spray is good but I think I was expecting a little bit more after reading the blurb on the bottle.
Definitely exfoliate, that is a must. If you have dry knees, elbows it will show up once the colour develops.
The colour is fantastic and doesn't look majorly orange if your skin tone is light.
I guess my issue is that the bottle claims you can just get dressed and go. I haven't found that. I've used the product quite a bit now and no matter how little of the product i use my skin f...
- Verified purchase
I have tried several lotions to fake my tan and I would have to say that Bondi Sands did not disappoint! I love the smell, and the price, too!! Give it a try!! I'm sure you'll love it too, especially if you really want something that will give you that tan you wanted to flaunt!
Wonderful product, awesome fragrance
Great go to self tanning oil. Goes on as a liquid and dries before your eyes. It's got a great spray pump application, pleasant smell and you can dress immediately. This tan lasts quite long too and doesn't go patchy! It just fades like a natural sun tan.
Well done Bondi Sands, another great product.
The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because I feel as though the packaging/bottle could be a bit bigger.
Doesn't go yellow or orange
I have very fair skin and most self tanners are too yellow or orange on me, I tried this as it was on sale at Priceline at a great price. It sprays on like a light mist even though its an oil but its a dry oil so its not greasy , its tinted so you can see if you have missed any areas and has a light and subtle coconut smell that doesn't smell terrible like some of the tanners.
It dries fairly quickly but you don't see the real colour come out for several hours and I really like the colour as it seems more green based, which for someone like me...
