It's no secret that I'm a lover of a fake tan. I used to use sunbeds which I found so relaxing and gave me a lovely base for holidays but I don't have the time anymore and I know how bad they are for my skin, especially as I get closer to the big 3-0. Fake tanning has been the way to go, especially as fake tans seem to be getting better and better.
I'd always seen Cocoa Brown on other blogs but as it was a bit of a Primark exclusive I never bought myself a bottle. I really don't like going to Primark unless it's (a) early and very quiet (b) extremely necessary. I just don't like it in there, I'm sorry, I'm a terrible blogger!
Superdrug have recently started stocking them and Cocoa Brown have released a dark version of their 1 hour tan for Superdrug's 50th birthday. I prefer my tan to be dark so this was great, now was the time to give Cocoa Brown a go and add another tan to my huge collection!
I'd not tried any other 1 hour tans before so I was eager to try this out. So eager that I put it on as soon as I got home, normally I set aside and evening for tanning and sleep in it but this couldn't wait, I needed to try it NOW!
My pale legs before...
The smell is lovely, it's quite sweet and not like any tan I've smelt before. Though the smell goes away completely once it's dry so even if it was awful it wouldn't matter. It's just another thing that ticks the boxes for me!
Tan after washing off
The tan lasted a week, of course this was with moisturising and exfoliating so it faded naturally.
It the more affordable end of the tanning spectrum at £6.99 for 100ml it's really worth giving a go.
