Review | Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan...







During the colder months, I think we all get a touch of the the winter blues, with dark, cold, rainy nights, it's normal to feel a little under the weather, not to mention a little less confident with all those baggy jumpers, they sure don't flatter me and my pale skin, if like me your not lucky enough to have been on holiday recently. So when my friends text me on a Saturday afternoon or evening asking if I want to come out for a few drinks, my first thought is always what the hell am I going to wear? I'm always far too pale to wear a skirt or dress and then I usually decline the offer or go out sulking because I'm pale! So when the opportunity arose to test out a product from the Cocoa Brown Tan range, I knew immediately that the 1 hour tan would be perfect for me. 

The Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan aims to give you 'beautifully bronzed, radiant skin in just 1 hour' with the product continually developing, meaning that you can leave it on for 1 hour for a light glow, 2 hours for a medium glow or 3 hours for a deep glow and the product still continues to develop after being rinsed off, aiming to last 5-7 days. With a vegetable derived tanning agent and preservative, this product does not contain any parabens and is very gentle on skin, even sensitive skin, therefore this product is suitable for both the body and the face. 

I have to be honest and say I don't fake tan all that often, I'm far too lazy and I just don't go out all that much but the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan has really changed my views on getting bronzed up! What I love the most about this product is how easy it makes a night out, not only is the product so easy to apply, but it also allows me to tan after working all day on a Saturday and I still have time to wash it off before I go out, anything that makes my life simpler gets a thumbs up from me!

I fell in love with the formulation of this product straight away, the mousse is so smooth and so easy to apply, I simply squirt it into the glove and massage the product into the skin in circular motions. It doesn't streak at all and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the product fades so evenly without any tell-tale patches in sight, it was nice not to dread the flaky, patchy skin that follows the fading of any other tan, its not a look I aim for! The only claim I have to disagree with on this tan, is that it doesn't smell like fake tan, I feel a lot of company's try their best to make their tan smell better but after all it is still fake tan and I still have yet to come across any that doesn't even smell a little like it's true form.

I like to exfoliate any dry patches thoroughly the night before tanning to avoid the tan sticking to these patches and therefore drawing attention to that area. After having a shower I simply apply this all over and allow to dry whilst I do my hair and makeup, then I rinse off after my desired time and moisturise. I usually keep the tan on for 3 hours to gain a nice deep tan, however I have fallen asleep with it on, on more than one occasion and have found that the products still works perfectly.

I could not recommend this product enough and I cannot wait to try more from the range, have you tried the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan yet?
