Bondi Sands ‘Glo’ Self Tan

Hello my loves. Welcome back 🙂

Today I am going to be giving you a review on the Bondi Sands ‘Glo’ Shimmer One Day Tan. I love self tan – and I have always loved the Bondi Sands tans, they give the perfect green based tan which looks so natural!


I wanted a self tanner that was going to give me a super glowy body – I had an event in the evening and honestly just felt like being super dramatic and making my body a disco ball of glitter and gloss! Whilst on the hunt for something that would give me this effect, I stumbled across this in my local Superdrug. There are three different versions of this tan, they are all part of their Glo range, exclusively sold at Superdrug. These include;

I was standing at the self tanning isle for what felt like a life time before finally deciding to go for the Shimmer One Day Tan. This retails for £9.99 but they are currently on offer for £4.99.

I had already tanned my body the night before, as I always do, and so went home and showered off the remaining tan. I then applied the Shimmer One Day Tan over the top with the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mit – it doesn’t really matter what mit you use as long as you really buff in the tan.

The results were amazing – not what I expected but I loved it! It left little gold specks of shimmer all over my body. I personally loved this look but I understand that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But boy, when the light shinned on these glitters I literally looked like Edward Cullen in Twilight!!!


The tan instantly dries so you don’t have to wait around for it – the best way to describe it is like a matte formula with shimmer?! (Does that make sense?!)

I had a shower the next day, didn’t exfoliate or try to remove the tan purely because I had a fresh layer under it – but the shimmers all came off which was such a bonus! For the event I was at this was perfect, I loved it.

If you were on the hunt for a glossier based tan then definitely opt for the Gloss version – I am going to buy the other two in this range and do another review on them so I can give my final opinion – but so far, I am sold.

What do you think? Is it too much for you or do you like the gold shimmers?

Thank you so much for reading this blog post, I hope you enjoyed it! Be sure to give me any feedback you may have as I always love taking people’s opinions on board.
