What happened?

Doesn't last and colour is light, I have been using this tan for many years however the last few bottles I have bought I have found that the tan only lasts a day It is not deep and dark and it goes patchy. Something has changed in their ingredients.

Oh dear

I was really looking forward to trying this self tanning lotion, but upon first application, it was just so splotchy and streaky. It was a massive disappointment and I’ve tried many self tanners before! This is the worst one yet! Tried again about a week later… same thing. I tried adding more to the other leg and less on one of my arms to see if I could somehow manipulate the outcome and to see which method worked better… but no… always ended up splotchy. I hate it with a passion. It went straight to the garbage bin after that. I do not recommend, but I do love their other products and am a loyal customer. Show details

Love it!

Gives a really nice natural tan immediately. A lively colour too, not orangey like some other brands Show details

Disaster

The mousse..the glove. It was a total disaster for me. Starting point is too much product and trying to spread it arounds evenly is impossible. .my application was obvious. Dark glove size patches in places along with streaks. It looked easy on youtube but I just didn't have the knack.
Great colour but prefer rubbing in with my hand like moisturiser Show details

This is okay

It’s okay. It does the job. Unfortunately it’s not my go to. You do get what you pay for. I personally do not like the smell. It does come off a little bit patchy and slightly orange. I don’t love it but I don’t hate it.  Show details

Waste of time!

Well, that’s 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back - my legs are just as white now, as they were before! Followed the directions to a tee - even left it on for 2 hours, as the colour never set with a 30 min & a 60 min application previously!
Rinsed off with warm water, & all the tan went straight down the drain...... :( Show details

Amazing colour

This is up there with the best self tan I’ve used because it doesn’t smell horrible and dries almost instantly. In the year that I’ve used this I think I’ve only had streaks on my arm once otherwise it’s been very consistent. Show details

Since the change in formula its terrible!

This lotion was by far the best on the market in that price bracket UNTIL they recently changed the formula. It now dries your skin to the point whereby you have legs and arms that look like tiger bread after 2 days. The colour is now more orangey than a cool brown. Very disappointed! still waiting for a response from Bondi about this - Disaster Show details

Fake tan never looked so good

30 minutes drying time. Best on market as long as you follow instructions. Exfoliate dead skin cells, whole body. Moisturize and 10 minutes later apply. Voila you have total perfection. Show details

Love it way better than the foam !

I usually use the foam but I tried the lotion because it was on sale and it’s so much better ! It’s not sticky and during the development i forgot that it was on, feels just like moisturiser. There is little to no smell also which I love I always hated that with the foam Show details

Waste of money

First I had tried the light/medium tan which i found applied well with the mitt but didnt last. So purchased the Dark tan (I am pale) used the bondi sands exfoliating glove and then applied with mitt and left tan on for 6 hrs as it states. Went to have a shower and it all came off, I looked exactly the same as before I tanned! Would not recommend, also I found that the mitt had absorbed most of the tan aswell when applying. Show details

After the initial application I kept on 24 hours can you apply a second coat the following day if the color isn't even or dark enough and if so how long should you wait after showering

Yes you can do another application. You can shower after 1 hour but says to leave it up to 8rs.

I use the light/ medium, I’ve got to be at an event tonight and I put my tan on at 12 but it takes me forever to get ready so I need enough time to shower and get ready. If I wash it off after 4 and a half hours instead of 6, will my tan be light or will it be dark?
