Sometimes, even if you really really want to love a product, you just can't. 

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser since it's launch and honestly the idea alone got me all excited. The price, however, did not. I'm stingy with body care, especially anything fake tan related, for example the only tan I use is St.Moritz and I get it from Bodycare where it only costs £2.99 - it's cheap & it does the job well. So for me to spend £14.99 to remove it I was like hell noooo, I was also shocked to see there was no introductory price which is odd for a new hyped up product on the market. 

So I patiently waited till it was on offer for £9.99 - less than a tenner I can cope with especially when I'd read so many rave reviews. Unfortunately, it didn't not live up to said reviews and turned out to be a waste of money - thank god I didn't spend fifteen quid on it!

It says to apply before shower, liberally, all over the body and wait 5 mins. Which I did. It's also noted that it's not to be used on tan any earlier than three days old, mine was six. Then, step 3 is to hop into a warm shower and use a wet face cloth to buff away the product and the tan. It literally did nothing. didily squat. zilch. nada. It states 'for more stubborn areas use an exfoliating mitt' - my whole body was apparently a stubborn area. I moisturise every day so there was no areas of skin aside from my ankles (my tan bloody loves my ankles, they're married) that tan was going to cling onto for dear life and if I'm going to spend money on a product that claims to remove product I don't want to then have to go in with another product to actually remove it.

Ok, rant over. But if you thought this product was too good to be true, it's because it kinda is. I guess that's why there's not already a product like it on the market. 

If you're having a tan disaster or need to get it off the old bits to apply a new coat, you're better off sticking to a good old fashioned exfoliating glove - you can get a pack of two from Primark for about £2. 

In the words of Simon Cowell - 'It's a no from me.'

However, I'm still keen to try their actual fake tan, I haven't written Bondi Sands off completely.
