Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan

Hello again,
With the summer just about here I wanted to try my first fake tan and ditch the ghostly legs!
I've heard great things about Cocoa Brown from celebrities in the media to people I know, I thought I'd finally try it and see what all the fuss was about.
Marissa Carter has created a product that is quick to apply and dry, smells good and is great for sensitive skin.

I exfoliated a few days before tanning, Tough Stuff is excellent at removing the dry skin from elbows, knees and wherever else you need it. I then moisturised using Chocolate Whip which may i add smells like chocolate?! I know it's in the name but i was nicely surprised.
Then onto the tan, I was nervous that it would dry too fast and leave me with patches but it was so easy to apply. I could see where I had already been and buffed away!

Before tanning on the left and after tanning on the right.

I left the tan on for 1 hour, with me being super pale and never tanning before I didn't know how dark I would go but I'm really happy with the results and will defiantly be tanning more often. It's not much of a difference but i did feel like i had a nice glow!

Have you tried Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan before?

  2. I NEED all these products!! With working such odd hours, I always miss out on the good weather and I'm starting to feel wayyy too pale for my own good. I may have to pick up all these Cocoa Brown products, especially the chocolate whip, because. hmmm. chocolate!?

    1. Who doesn't want to smell like chocolate?! It sinks into the skin really fast too which is a bonus :)
