Bronzed Skin with Cocoa Brown

Yesterday you might of seen my post on Cocoa Brown's answer to the perfect tan prep so today I have the scrub you need in your life and the most natural high street tan I've ever used. 
As I said yesterday Cocoa Brown has been getting a lot of hype on Twitter and various blogs so of course I had to try them out. Hot pink, girly and said to leave you beautifully bronzed, it's the perfect budget tan. 

I started using Chocolate Whip* and Tough Stuff* a few days before wanting to tan so my skin was in tip tip condition. Tough Stuff is a 3 in 1 body scrub aimed to prepare skin for tan and remove stubborn old tan while leaving your skin soft and smooth. It is a runny, pink liquid full of tiny little granules that give a really intense exfoliation, rough elbows and knees are no more.

I applied the 1 Hour Instant Tan* using a Cocoa Brown Tanning Mitt*. I really didn't like the mitt, the tan soaked straight through, I'm so glad I had already put on latex gloves otherwise I would of had major tan hands. The tan itself applied really well, it was easy to blend in and didn't gather around my elbows and knees ( Thanks Tough Stuff!). Leave on for one hour for a light glow, two hours for a medium tan and three hours if you prefer a darker tan. I left it on for just one hour and washed it off because I didn't want to over do it. It left a subtle glow which looked fab but I wanted more so I reapplied again the following night for a more golden tan. 

I was really impressed with Cocoa Brown, I did think it may just be another high street tan but in the week I was wearing it, it didn't go patchy or orange and I was told I looked glowing. There was still a subtle fake tan smell, which the other half did comment on but the overall results are worth smelling a like a digestive.

  3. I will remember to leave mine on for 3 hours, as I love a dark tan. Although I'm a little scared i'll come out orange. Keep meaning to try this, but its too cold at the moment to stand there half naked applying it haha. KBxx

    1. I was worried about going orange but I loved the result! xx
