Quite Impressed

published

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!!

Purchased in January 2020 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for $11.99.

1 hr still sticky & Developed orange

published

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

Purchased in September 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for $19.99.

Dries skin

published

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.

Ok but takes a while to dry

published

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

published

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!

published

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!!!

Difficult to apply.

published

The spray bottle is messy and the colour is not natural at all. There’s definitely better products in the market. I have had to scrub the bathroom clean after using this product as it went everywhere and nearly stained the bath.

Ahh mazing

published

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.

Caused a bad skin reaction!!

published

Never had a skin reaction to a tanning product before but I used Bondi Sands liquid gold and broke out in a terrible rash all over my body! So disappointed as I was really looking forward to trying this product, won't be using again.

Just Perfect!

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

published

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.

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?
