Wave goodbye to the days of sitting in sticky tan for hours and say hello to a bronzed glow in just one hour!

Why we love this product

I'm not going to lie, I'm a fake tan junkie. I've tried so many brands and have an abundance of half used bottles at home in my bathroom. However, a significant benefit of this is that I have an extensive knowledge (and expectancy) when it comes to the fake tan I am using. Therefore, when Bondi Sands announced its upcoming one hour express tan, it's safe to say I got excited. I've been a lover of the Ultra Dark tanning foam from the brand since its launch. However, the one downfall was the amount of time I had to sit in this tan for me to get the colour I wanted. Most of the time I ended up just sleeping in my tan. Until now.

This one hour express tan needs exactly that. I did my typical exfoliating and hydrating routine that I do with all fake tans and got out my tanning mitt ready to embark on this tanning adventure. This self-tanning foam was a little different in consistency to the other Bondi Sands tans as it reminded me a little more of a mousse than a foam but worked exactly the same, if not better. I have fairly dry skin so getting a tan to work well is not incredibly easy but this one definitely went on like a dream.

When applying it definitely didn't feel sticky and quickly absorbed into my skin. It really only took me a matter of minutes to do my entire body and dried fast enough that I could put my dark clothes over the top. It also didn't have a super strong tan smell but more the signature coconut scent. I do like my tan quite dark, so I left it on for the full hour and a little bit for good measure. If you just want a bronze glow then wash off after 30 minutes. I genuinely love the way this tan looked after I had washed it off. It wasn't streaky or too orange and just sat on my skin wonderfully. I definitely think this is about to become a holy grail product of mine.


This tan is incredibly affordable, sitting at $24.95. You also don't need to use an abundance of product so you're going to get your money's worth at a very reasonable price!
