Overall Opinion:

I have gotten lots of requests to review this Australian brand.

I ended up giving Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam 4.25 out of 5 stars, so it was a pretty good product.

They ship to the USA now, but it’s expensive to get it here.  I think the shipping alone is about $14.00, on top of the price of the product, your total will be $35+.

There were some things I really liked about this product.  First off, the smell is to die for!  It smells like coconut and reminds me of being on a beach vacation.  What’s not to like about that?

Also, the color produced is very nice.

I ended up with a dark brown tan that looked natural.

You guys know I love being dark, and this one produced a shade I was very happy with.

Unfortunately, that dark tan didn’t last long and it faded away after 2-3 days.  I wish it would’ve lasted a few more days.

Application can also be messy, as it is with most mousses.

Detailed Opinion:

Look and Feel

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam is a dark brown foam/mousse.

There’s a very dark guide in it, and its a pretty lightweight foam.


Application can get messy.

Make sure to apply with a tanning mitt so the product doesn’t stain your hands.

I applied mine while standing over a towel just in case any dropped to the floor.

You have to rub the foam in for a few seconds to make sure you cover all areas.

The dark guide is a little daunting because it’s so dark, it looks a little greenish.

Drying Time

This one dried pretty quickly.

I was completely dry in under 20 minutes, which was awesome.

I didn’t feel very sticky or wet while I waited for it to dry either, which was nice.

Smell (Before Application)

This one smells really good!

It smells sweet and tropical, like coconuts.

It reminds me of vacation, I love the smell.

Smell (After Several Hours And The Next Day)

When I woke up the next morning I couldn’t smell any DHA or coconut smell.

Color Produced

I used the foam in the “dark” shade, and I was surprised how dark it actually got me.

A lot of self tanners that are dark, end up giving me a medium shade tan, but this one gave me a dark tan.

The color was a natural brown color, and any green that was seen in the guide washed away once I showered.

The color was very smooth, I loved how it looked.

How Long It Lasts

Unfortunately my great tan faded after about 2-3 days :(

I really liked the dark tan it gave me, so I was hoping it would last a little longer, but it didn’t.

As it faded my legs became quite splotchy as well.

OK For Men?

Men, if you’re looking for a dark tan I think you may like this one.

It’s great for a special occasion or day at the beach, but don’t expect your tan to last more than 3 days.

Also, the application is pretty messy so be careful with that.


The price of this one works out to about $24.00 in US dollars.

That’s $3.42 per ounce which is pretty average.
