Because of my pale Irish skin I love using fake tan. I’ve tried & tested quite a few and so far nothing has compared to Cocoa Brown Tan. It is an award-winning brand,the tan leaves a gorgeous natural colour and there are a wide range of products available. Below are the range of Cocoa Brown products by Marissa Carter currently on shelves nationwide. There are 3 new products being released in the next few months which I am so excited about!
1 Hour Tan: My favourite and super easy to use tan is this product which comes in a mousse formula. This tan is perfect for anyone who wants a light or even a deep glow. Simply leave the tan on for an hour for the lightest colour or for 3 hours for a deeper colour. It varies from person to person but the tan usually last for about 5 days. The bonus with this product is that it does not have the usual tan smell, Cocoa Brown tan has a gorgeous floral scent to it! I love this tan for everyday wear.
Night & Day Tan: This is another incredible product that is super quick and easy to apply and shows up immediately on the skin. This product is slightly darker than the original 1 hour tan and when washed off the day after application it leaves a golden glow to the skin.
1 Hour Tan DARK: This is the same formula as the above 1 Hour Tan but is a darker shade. I love this for parties, nights out and for occasions. For a bronze glow keep this product on for 1 hour or for an intense colour keep it on for 3 hours. It is just as good as the original and I love the colour pay-off.
Tough Stuff: Another incredible product by the brand is Tough Stuff Body Scrub/Exfoliator. It is a 3 in 1 product that prepares the skin for tan, removes old tan and exfoliates the skin. I use this as often as possible and it leave the skin feeling super soft afterwards.
Gentle Bronze: This is a gradual tanning moisturiser. It can be used by itself to gently build up a colour or over a tan to maintain it and keep your skin moisturised. It should be used daily to build up a natural looking tan. This product is super silky and like the rest of the range, smells amazing!
Lovely Legs: This is an instant tan for legs. Being honest, I didn’t completely love the original formula too much as it was quite orange BUT the new Lovely Legs formula gives a natural bronze colour to the legs when applied.
Chocolate Whip: A brilliant oil free body moisturiser that leaves the skin feeling super soft and helps to maintain a tan. Using this also allows tan to fade gradually and evenly. A huge benefit to this product is that it’s also suitable for people prone to acne. It smells so like chocolate too!
Tanning Mitt: A tanning mitt is so important for applying an even tan. It can be used on both the face & body. The brand have 2 mitts on the market. I liked the original mitt but it did transfer tan onto the palms leaving stained hands. The new mitt is thicker and double-sided so there is no fear of transfer. It is definitely the best mitt I have used to date!
Cocoa Brown is now available to buy in the USA and in Australia! It really is an incredible tanning range, suitable for people with even the lightest skin like me!
