From Pale & Pasty to Golden Goddess - My new favourite Self Tan.

Come Spring/Summer time, I can often be found doused in fake tan. Due to my red-haired heritage I'm unable to tan naturally which totally sucks, I don't even catch a slight tan!
Due to these circumstances I hit the (self-tan) bottle...and I hit it hard (life's tough when you've got a bestie who goes on holiday looking like Emma Stone and comes back looking like Jourdan Dunn).
I used to swear by Rimmel's Sun Shimmer Instant Tan - that was my go-to for all of last year and I completely loved it. It was cheap, easy to apply and didn't streak.
However, I was searching through Superdrug's Instagram recently and came across the fake tanning brand Bondi Sands. I'd never heard of them before and after following them on Instagram and seeing the results of their self tans, I simply had to try it out.
I picked up their Self Tanning Foam in Light/Medium (£14.99) and I absolutely love it. It turns even the palest of complexions (like myself) a lovely golden brown, there's not even a slight hint of orange. 

I like to apply my fake tans with a mitt and this one goes on like a dream - no streaks or patches here. Plus it smells like coconuts - this has definitely become my new holy grail self-tanner. 

If you're into fake tanning, I definitely recommend giving this one a go. It also comes in dark and in tons of different formats - foams, lotions, mists etc...
and it's currently on offer in Superdrug.
