This dry oil is an insanely better value and quality imo than the other poplar tan dry oil spray out there on the market that has a ‚Äúcool‚Äù name and comes in a brown bottle. This smells so good, like coconuts, but I do smell tan after some hours. It has a super light olive guard color, barely noticeable, but does make a nice impact upon application & doesn't stain (the sheen more tells you where you've applied it than the color). And obvi the olive makes for no orange tan. One thin coat doesn't make you oily at all! But soft and moisturizing. I love oil on my body or I feel like the Sahara desert. I put this on head to toe. I do have a normal/oily leaning face but I like the dewy look. You are simply a glistening goddess and get darker by the HOUR. The tan starts developing FAST and besides DHA it contains erythrulose way up on ingredients list so it will continue to develop for a very long time (so follow directions and don't shower it off-btw that's another thing I LOVE you don't have to shower it off!), it is pretty dark eventually, and lasts an extraordinary length of time due to the added active. In fact I've never seen erythrulose up so high on a list before. If the spray bottle gets too greasy while in use, wrap a paper towel around it. I use a mitt to blend in sweeping strokes but I ALSO (for every tan) use cheap rubber gloves under the mitt PLUS wash my hands before using mitt residue to tap the tops of them and blend with moisturizer (my hands get super dark and it sticks no matter how many times I practically burn my skin off trying to scrub them :tired_face:). To apply evenly to back, I stick my butt way out and spray it over my back/shoulder area really heavily til it starts dripping down, then I blend from lower back up. You must be able to reach your whole back for this method. Also if you spray your tummy really heavy you can swoop it round back that way and the top of the back is easy. I'm getting sick of foams, liquids, waters& lotions, even ones without color guards. The dryness factor. Even with thrice daily moisturizing. My body skin is *so* dry that a tanning OIL is what my mid-end summer skin has been craving... I just needed to find THE one. I'll still do my ultra dark foam, for a punch of in your face color (& it lasts an eternity on my dry body) but not as much anymore now that I found this aptly named gem. And - aside from guiltlessly spritzing this oil on my mug for cosmetic glow alone nonetheless prolonged tan - I've developed a facial tan system with face specific products; no tan sticks to my face even when not doing a heavy makeup/cleanse routine. I was putting like ultra dark mousses all over my face almost daily which I'm sure isn't the greatest for skin - and now I realize with modern tan technology ya don't have to forego skincare for tan! I just theorize tan sticks like glue to dry skin and my face ain't dry at all. I am now a true tall tan glistening goddess lol. NW20-near NC40 baby. I will buy this again and again. I've tried the aforementioned $rip off$ dry oil competitor (was like a gradual compared to this, smelled, sprayed sloppily & has denatured alcohol and no erythrulose) and another unique coconut oil type tan which was interesting (but again like a gradual)... this is by far the best of them and quite possibly my new TOP favorite of my ALL 1567 other super strength tanners I own!
Most Helpful Critical Review If I could I would give Bondi Sands a zero because of their
I was so excited to try out Bondi Sands. I have tried almost st every tanner out there and am always looking for the perfect one. A bunch of my friends wanted me to try this one as I am the tester of all selftanners for most of my friends and family. I placed my order with Bondi Sands on 10/25. After noticing the promo code was not applied after the fact and that my address was not appearing in the confirmation, I immediately emailed them (within a half hour of placing the order). I sent an email everyday and only received a response after posting a negative review(which was then removed by bondi). That response was on 10/30 saying to send the promo code and it would be refunded. They made no mention of when I will be receiving my products. I sent the promo code immediately and have yet to receive any confirmation or follow up response to my other emails. I ordered loving tan products immediately after I ordered from Bondi Sands and received their products in two days with free shipping. I am paying 15 dollars for shipping, have already had the money taken out of my paypal account for the order and do not even have any way to see what my order status is. There is no phone number to call and has been the most enfuriating experience. I was so excited to try the three products I ordered for my friends wedding on Friday but at this rate I have no faith in that happening. It could be the best tanning products I've ever used but with how much of a nightmare this has been I would rather go elsewhere. Maybe I'll actually get a response with some information after this post!

Definitely not as dark as their dark & ultra dark mousses obviously, but it's darker than I expected. It's beautiful, golden, and develops quickly! I left it on overnight but I noticed it working after just 2 hours. I feel like this is a good "touch up" tanner as well as one to use on hands/feet since it's a little more forgiving in those areas. I'm not sure if I would recommend this for beginners, since it's harder to tell where you've already applied it (guide color blends in pretty quickly instead of leaving a dark guide). But if you're more familiar with tanning this is definitely worth a try.
My new go to!!
Sjww from Florida
I just bought this dry oil today and I'm obsessed!!! I love the brand but just discovered the oil. I'm very fair skinned and it's left a glowing oil tan. I personally like it better than the mousse, just because it's easier to apply and go. I put it on around noon and by 6 i was dark. So I recommend doing it the day before you need it or at night! The smell isn't terrible either or over powering, i used the bondi mitt to apply and it didn't take long at all!
Eman from League city
I like how it's applied no streaks
Jenna from Grand Rapids
I love how quick and effortless this application is, quick to rub in. It's not super dark but the color looks really good! There's no smell or transfer, feels good. Overall really impressed
Really natural and doesn't streak

Honestly I wasn't expecting to like this so much. But I do love a dry oil, especially in the summer.
This doesn't give a lot of color, but this gives natural color. I don't personally want to go up 4-5 shades and look unnatural. I am ok with going up 1 -2 shades. This doesn't look orange or yellow like a lot of tanners do. There is no color guard really so you can get dressed right away as soon as it's dry. It doesn't transfer. It sets in about 4-6 hours. I don't like the coconut smell, but it isn't an OTT tanner smell either. I'm ok with tanning day not smelling all that great. I guess I'd prefer coconuts to tanning BO.
In all I really like this a lot. It matches my natural tan. My feet got weird tan lines over the summer and I applied this around them and it blended in perfectly. It's the perfect combo of yellow/olive/brown.
I put this on a buffing brush to tan my hands and neck as well when needed and it never streaks or builds up unevenly.
I will repurchase. I want to try more from bondi sands. I wish they had their stuff in store.

I'm in the middle about this product. I bought it with intentions that it was going to give me lots of color like your typical mouse would but that's not the case. HOWEVER you do get color, just not very rich color. I personally found the best way to use this product is to prolong my self tanners. I do my typical self tan routine using St Tropez and after about the 4 or 5 day of showering I will go in with this, spray my entire body and work it in then go behind it with my moisturizer and it definitely helps keeps color for a bit longer. I am light med/ to med/dark skin tone which may have a contribution as to why I don't get much color payoff.
Very fair skin and I love it
Ray from Alabama
I wanted a slight natural tan since I am very fair skinned and this works really well for me. I don't think I would like it if I was medium skinned toned. I love the way it makes my look and I've already repurchased.
Better than foam imo
Madison from Arkansas
I have used many different self tanners because I'm a very pale person. Most of them have been foam but I decided to try this to change it up. LOVE THE SMELL. Doesn't leave a fake tan smell like other foams I have used. My only complaint is it doesn't last as long as other fake tanning products but it goes on nice and moisturizing. I also like the fact that it doesn't have a guide color because I don't have to wash it off before it looks nice. I can put it on in the morning or at night. This isn't a product you can just spray on though. It does need to be rubbed in with a tanning mitt
it's not what I was expecting
Julia from Wisconsin
It's not as dark as I thought it would be and it takes a few hours to process compared to the mousse but on the bright side it's not messy at all and the color is a nice olive shade!
wanted to love it
Franki from Phoenix, AZ
The color of this product is fantastic, but I have tried quite a few different application techniques and can't get it to not be streaky/patchy. I've always used foam and will be trying their foam instead. I'm bummed this product didn't work out but I am impressed with the smell and color.
Love! Most natural on cool toned fair skin
Sara from Arlington Texas
Just wonderful. Never streaky, dries quickly
Mz_A_Dubya from Wisconsin
Great color! Very natural looking. Very easy to apply. My only problem, it SMELLS!!! I literally smell like sunless tanner for several days, even after showering. It's definitely a tan-in-a-can smell! I guess it's a small price to pay for natural-looking color!
Favorite self tanner!
Bri from Michigan
The color is beautiful and there's zero smell! Absolutely in love with this product! Will be buying all summer long.
Okayyy I see you Bondi Sands
Chey from .
So I love Bondi Sands. I have almost every tanner that they offer and I like the foams but if not done right they can look horribly fake. This is perfect for a natural glowy color that's a good bit darker than your natural tone! I've noticed that it doesn't smell as bad as the mousse either- which can linger days after washing and makes you stink when you sweat. Definitely not as drastic as the foams or mousse but it's beautiful. Repurchasing right now!
Natural and fast
NikMat from New Jersey
Smells so good. Spray and about 4 hours later I saw a tan! Worked great!!
R1cc1 from Arizona
Spray it on and spread with a mitt. Easy! I have a subtle color after developing. I didn't feel sticky or uncomfortable waiting for the shower, but I did catch the tanner smell. Not as bad as some, but I am glad I stayed home. I can smell it on the clothes I wore, but there isn't any color transfer.
I plan to apply again to build a deeper color. I have used several different brands and I'm pleased with this one. Overall, I recommend.
This is awful. Doesn't look natural at all and feels sticky!

Don't waste your money!
Love This 🥰💯
Sarah V from No
This Is Thee Easiest to use and it fool proof and it make ur fair/ light/ olive skin tones get nice and glowing with a tan and if u take care of it it will last over a week!! This is my lazy favorite if I don't wanna sleep with the foam on my body 😉🤷🏼♀️, But the foam comes out just as beautiful and a bit darker with the foam but still this I always have to have in my house at ALL times!! 🥰
streak free, easy and smells amazing!
Elysa from Undisclosed
Super easy to apply without streaks unlike most other tanning products, smell is great and doesn't smell like fake tan. Will definitely keep using, buy more once I've finished this bottle and keen to try other products from this range.
adore this! the guide colour
Rosie from Undisclosed
adore this! the guide colour is great and it instantly drys so I usually put it on with whatever outfit I'm wearing! Doesn't transfer or streak! It looks so bronze and golden!
Andrea from Undisclosed
Beautiful colour but so sticky
Jodie from Undisclosed
The best tan I've ever used. It does develop over a few hours definitely, and leaves the most beautiful colour AND lasts up to a week. However it says no shower necessary which is completely false. You have to wash this off purely because you feel like you've been dipped in honey!! It has the stickiest consistency I've ever felt in my life! Other than that best tan I've ever used:blush:

This product gives you a sun-kissed look, and a soft tan. Ideal for the maintenance of your tan. Also it smells so good!
Maddie from Undisclosed
Love this product so much! I was using the foam but find this one much better because of dry time and goes on much more evenly and easier!
