Recently I decided that I wanted to try out a new fake tan, as I've been using St Moritz Instant Self Tanning Mousse in 'Dark' for years now! I absolutely love this fake tan as it's only £2.99 and lasts up to a week on my skin (I have dry to normal skin) If you would like a separate review on this tan please let me know in the comments! Anyways back to Cocoa Brown Tan! Whilst I was in Superdrug looking at all the fake tans available that bright pink bottle caught my attention and I instantly recognised it from beauty blogs I read. I then saw the £5.99 price tag and I was sold!
So I purchased the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Instant Tan and here are my thoughts and first impression of it!
Colour: After a fair few fake tan disasters in my teenage years I am always slightly wary of trying out new fake tans as I can't stand fake tans that have ghastly orange under tones. No one wants to look like a umpa-lumpa! The colour of this tan is a lovely golden brown which looks incredibly natural!
Smell: This was one thing that really caught my attention when I first picked up the bottle was this claim - it doesn't have that fake tan 'biscuitty' smell which personally doesn't really bother me but it does bother my other half ha! The scent of this fake tan is very fresh and floral.
Application: I always go for mousse formulas when it comes to fake tans. I find a mousse is very easy to apply (with a mit so you don't end up with stupidly tanned hands) as you can see exactly where you have applied the product meaning you don't end up with streaks! The formula also dries super quick so you can get dressed straight away which is always a big thumbs up.
Development: Another claim that caught my attention on the bottle is that this tan develops in one hour which is amazing. Theres nothing worse than realising you forgot to fake tan and you don't have 8-10 hours for it to develop! This tan really does develop into a gorgeous colour within the hour which is great for when you don't have 8-10 hours and need instant colour!
As you can probably tell this fake tan is a new favourite of mine and I'd highly recommend it if your looking for a new fake tan! Have you tried any of Cocoa Brown's products? What do you think?
