Bondi Sands Aero Liquid Gold – Missed the Mark

Hello Hello! The sun is shining which has given me the desire to do some good for myself. I had my morning coffee, did some work, did a nice workout, and after took an amazing shower. After showering I decided to break out my new self tanner. Lately I have been really feeling the Bondi Sands brand. They are affordable, smell nice, and give off a great color. In the past I have used the Ultra dark & the One Hour Express. When ordering this last time I decided to test their new Aero Liquid Gold product. As much as I love the company this product failed.


Upon browsing Bondi’s website I came across the Aero collection. Last year right around this time they came out with the Aero line. The line includes a light/medium, dark, ultra dark, 1 hour, and the liquid gold. As an avid self tanner I choose to usually get the darkest color especially in the Summer. However I decided that it was time to change it up, thus ordering liquid gold. What’s so special about this one? Well it promises to give you an amazing color, smell like you’ve walked off the beach AND the best part and what truly sold me was the no wash off. Again I am an avid self tanner and have made every mistake in the book. It all seemed to good to be true…..Wellllll it was. I did my typical routine of showering, shaving and exfoliating. I used my special mitt and applied it the same I do all my other tanners. Except I was disappointed with this result. I was not expecting the color to turn out super dark but I was thinking it would end up looking darker than what I got. At best I would say the color turned out to be more of a light tan than anything else. For the time of year I personally don’t want this color. I could get a drugstore product and have the same effect and a fraction of the cost. That being said I did really like the Aero my skin did leave my skin smelling good and hydrated, plus it did dry quickly allowing me to get on with the rest of my day. This is not something I would get again, honestly I would test the Aero but in dark or ultra dark. If you want a more subtle color I would recommend this one just wasn’t for me!
