Last week, I asked around the office for the most foolproof tans people swore by.
The one that’s impossible to mess up, makes them look like they’ve just spent a week in the Maldives and doesn’t leave them looking like they have a rare skin condition by day two.
There were plenty of recommendations, but very soon I noticed a pattern.
Regardless of skin tone or tanning skill level, there was one product that kept coming up over and over again.
Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Dark.
It costs just $19.95 and is available online, at Priceline (where it's currently 20 per cent off if you get in quick) or even at your local supermarket. Yes, you can pick it up at the same time as your fruit and veg (or chocolate and wine, I don't judge.)
"I don't tan much but when I do I use this one. It actually doesn't seem all that dark - it's not scarily dark so even someone with fair skin like me can use it," one friend tells me.
"It's green based so it doesn't have that garish orange tinge! It's good for me because my skin is olive-y," Weekend Editor Michelle says.
