Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser: The Lazy Girl's Guide

Anyone who knows me knows how much I enjoy being tanned. I just love looking and feeling bronzed, and clothes definitely look better with a hint of a glow.

Of course with fake tan comes the dreaded wear off stage, and the task of standing in the shower with a scrubbing mitt and a really grainy exfoliator is so monotonous. So when Bondi Sands announced the launch of their new tan removing product I almost hit the roof with excitement. That was until I saw the price, £14.99 for a product that removes tan? Hmm.

I walked past the shelves filled with the white bottles of this magic new potion many times, and delayed in buying not only because of the price, but the fact that after my initial enthusiasm had worn off, it seemed too good to be true. Then after reading so many positive reviews and feeling the hype beginning to bubble, I marched into Boots only to find the shelves empty. Everyone else must have had the same idea. Typical.

Eventually I tracked it down on the Boots website, and impatiently awaited its arrival. Today was the first day I have used it as I noticed my tan beginning to look dry, but still very much on. Bondi Sands recommends you use this on tan that is at least 3 days old, because trying to break down fresh tan is simply a bad idea. My tan was 4 days old today, and so I slathered on the moussey product, applying it like you would a moisturiser. It is a white foam that almost disappears when it dries and because of this I thought this is not going to live up to expectations. I sat for 8 minutes (my Instagram feed was too interesting), then off I trotted to the shower. Now, because of my scepticism and the fact my arms looked no different than they did before I applied the remover, I brought my scrub and exfoliating mitt with me. Just to be safe.

The bottle states you need to use warm water and a cloth to remove the product from your skin, which is what I did and dare I say it, it was magical to watch. It was as if the tan just melted away and disappeared. The real test of course was on stubborn bits like elbows and knuckles, I only had one small patch of tan on my elbow that needed a quick run over with my scrubbing mitt, and to be honest I didn't mind as I would be exfoliating these bits regardless of whether the tan eraser worked or not.

L-R: Before, during, after.
When I got out of the shower I was back to my super white self, and felt squeaky clean. I was really surprised by the effectiveness of this product and pleased that it delivered on its promises, cutting down the time I needed to spend in the shower.

I really think Bondi Sands have not only answered a lot of prayers, but also revolutionised the tanning world. Maybe other tanning brands will begin to create their own, hopefully cheaper, verisons. However, this would be such a convenient product to use if you were in a rush and didn't have time to stand and scrub your old tan off, as it literally takes 5 minutes and about 1 minute to rinse off. Because of the price, I probably wouldn't use this every time I wanted to remove old tan as I feel it's a bit too expensive to be using every week, but I probably will repurchase when I finally use this bottle as it's such a handy product. It's a thumbs up from me!
