Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs

I love to have a tan, I think I just look a lot healthier with one. I always like to put some fake tan on the night before an event but sometimes I'm just too tired/ have just put new bed sheets on/don't have someone around to do my back! This only means a last minute application is needed or I embrace the pale. 

Pale and interesting just doesn't work with me, so Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs (£7.99 from Superdrug) came to the rescue.


I won this in a giveaway and I'm really glad I got to try it. Honestly it's not something I would ever think to pick up. 

In the past I haven't been keen on instant wash off tans, I worry about something being spilt on me or it starting to rain ... or what if I get a bit sweaty?! I was pleased to see this one is water resistant.

Application is pretty simple, you just apply it to where you want a bit of colour, making sure your skin is clean and moisturised.

Shake the can for 20 seconds and then to avoid mess spray it right on to the mitt - you don't want to be cleaning your furniture straight afterwards! Use the mitt to buff the tan into your skin.

I admit the initial colour scared me at first. It is very.. terracotta! But it soon blended in to a golden tan. I recommend you use a little at a time and blend blend blend!


I was really pleased with the colour and my legs looked airbrushed. It
evens out the skin tone and cover imperfections.

This is a before and after - look how my pale legs look like a corpse! 


It really is splash proof too. I was bathing my son a few hours after applying the tan and it was only natural I'd end up with a few splashes and after having a damp child sat on my lap there still wasn't any sign of the tan smearing.

To remove the you just use soapy water and rinse it off.


I'm glad I got to try this, Cocoa Brown can do no wrong! I've been so impressed with their products in the last year. I can see this coming in really handy when I'm wearing a cut-out dress and notice my sides are a little too white to be on show. I find that a lot in the summer when arms and legs are out a lot more so catch the sun more! -It's going to be a useful product all year round!

What do you think of wash-off tans?

Have you tried lovely legs?



  1. I tan naturally so I don't use products like this but I think it works really well for you! (:

  2. Wow looks great!

  3. I perfect a longer tan than an wash off tan but this looks perfect for a quick tan. Great view!
