Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan | Review




 
From L to R, Before, After the hour, After showering the tan off. 

Hey girlie's!!!

Personally before i tried Cocoa Brown Tan i was never a fake tan lover, i always thought it was just too much hassle, unpredictable and hardly ever natural looking for me so with all those combined it had put me off for years however... After trying the Cocoa Brown Tan i have been converted and would say its the best and my most favourite tan by far. 

Cocoa Brown Tan by Marissa Carter is a fairly new self tan that exploded onto the Irish market and has took Ireland by storm with its fabulous results, affordable price and the fact that you can have a gorgeous looking tan within an hour. The tan has a mocha coloured  mousse formula with a lovely floral scent so no awful fake tan smell, its light weight, fast drying, non sticky and gives streak free results that lasts up to five days, what more could you ask for.

There's so many pros with this tan for me and not a single con, happy days. Firstly, the packaging is just gorgeous, i love its hot pink design and even when this arrived on my door step it came in a large pink padded envelope which just adds to the excitement for me. Then on to the application, i used the Cocoa Brown Self Tan Applicator Mitt its super easy to use and has a protective barrier inside so you wont get any awful stains on your nails or hands whilst applying, it blended in really quick and even with not a streak in sight, even my boyfriend said it was easy to use as he helped me get to the hard to reach places. After the application i waiting just over an hour for the tan to develop and during this time my skin never felt tacky or sticky which is one thing i was worried about but nope, no problems there and it smells amazing. Just after the hour i hopped in the shower to rinse the tan off and i was left with the most beautiful natural looking tan, there was not an orange tinge in sight it was just a gorgeous natural colour, it hadn't clung to my knee's, feet or ankles and was streak free, i love it.

I would definitely recommend this for newbies to the tanning world as its just so easy and quick to use, i love the fact that if your looking for a natural looking radiant glow you can just leave this tan on for an hour to develop or if your looking for a deeper darker tan you can leave on for up to 3 hours, the choice is yours.

Cocoa Brown Tan is available on the feelunique website and in selected Primark stores. 

Happy Tanning Girlie's !!!

  6. this kit looks awesome! i'd don't think i'd try this out because I'm very pale and i'd look like a wotsit if I did that although it looks amazingly natural on you!
