£18.99 Bondi Sands
This newbie from Bondi Sands is said to provide a 'genuine dark tan' in just one hour developing time. "Or, if you are in a real hurry, 30 minutes on the skin will result in a tan equivalent to our light/medium self-tanning foam.” says Blair James, Co-Founder of Bondi Sands.

Pale skin and a seasoned self-tanner. Most self-tans last 3-4 days on my skin before starting to fade or becoming patchy.
WHAT I USUALLY LOOK FOR IN A TAN:
The darker the better. I usually go for green-based formulas for a natural but deep tan. I'm partial to foams because they are easier to spread resulting in streak-free colour.
BONDI SANDS ONE HOUR EXPRESS REVIEW:
A tan that can develop in just one hour? What a time to be alive! Now I can have white sheets AND a 'just got back from the Bahamas' glow.
Having used Bondi Sands Self-Tanning Foams for years, the bar was set bloody high. I tend to use their dark or ultra-dark formula and the colour is phenomenal. If I could get the same result with just a smidge of the developing time, I'd jump on a plane to Australia tomorrow and high-five the founders.
First attempt? Only slightly impressed. Did it give me a tan? Yes, absolutely, no doubt about it. Was it as dark as I hoped? Sadly, no. I allowed exactly one-hour developing time, and for me, that gave the same amount of colour as the light/medium tanning foam.
Second attempt? I kept the foam on for 1 hour and 20 minutes, and BOY what a difference.
I was stoked. The fact I could get THIS in such a short amount of time was amazing. This product means that I can tan, have dinner and then shower all before bed. No staining the sheets, no boyfriend complaining of biscuit smell. Bloody brilliant.
In terms of the formula itself, the foam is a lot thicker, more like a shaving foam. You have to work quickly to spread it, as it starts to stain the skin as soon as it comes in , giving you little to no time for second chances.
Other than that, the application technique is the same as your regular tan. Exfoliate, moisturise those elbows and knees, and use a mitt for a flawless result.
For me and my skin, the tan lasted similarly to the regular formulas. I'd say it was about three days of amazing colour and then it began to fade evenly for days four to six. I was pretty lax with my body moisturising routine, so if you're a bit more committed it could last even longer.
It works. It's a miracle. For me, an hour doesn't give the ideal colour, but an hour and thirty minutes for a great tan is still pretty damn good.
