Cocoa Brown Bronzed and Beautiful Gift Set

One thing that can be a bit hit-and-miss at Christmas is gift sets, sometimes you love them but a lot of the time they are left in the corner of your room  for a good few months until you run out of shower gel or something.

However, if a little thought goes into it it can be seen as something brilliant instead of something picked up last minute.

For the tan lover The Bronzed and Beautiful set by Cocoa Brown is brilliant. I find usually there’s at least one product in a set hat will never get used but I’d use all 3 of these as they’re so brilliant.

Irish beauty brand Cocoa Brown have been really popular this year, with their striking pink packaging and excellent yet really affordable tanning range, it’s unlikely you meet someone who hasn’t tried them out.


I first tried out the 1 hour dark mousse and I seriously loved it, I used it constantly throughout the Summer so this gift set is right up my street. With 3 products worth £16 for £9.99 you’re getting serious value for money.


Inside the girly pink box there’s 3 full size Cocoa Brown products, including 1 hour tan, Gentle Bronze Gradual Tanner, and a sachet of Tough Stuff Body Scrub.

I’ve wanted to try out the Tough Stuff Body Scrub for a while now, and after using the sachet I’ll definitely be picking up a full sized bottle. The pink scrub removes stubborn dry skin more commonly associated with this current winter season and prepares your skin for smooth base for tanning. It also scrubs off old tan when it’s time to reapply. The 50ml sachet lasted me a couple of washes so a little goes a long way and it really does scrub away everything effortlessly.


Another product that wowed me was the Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tanner It builds up to a lovely even colour  which is really natural. It left my skin feeling really moisturised too and the best bit was that it didn’t have that have that 'gradual tan' smell either.


The third item in the set is the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan While it’s a really great tan and gives a natural even finish it just wasn’t dark enough for me. But it develops quickly and leaves you with a really natural glow so if you’re after something a bit more subtle this is definitely for you.


If you’re stuck for a gift idea I really recommend picking this up, it’s perfect for all ages and is great value too.

Cocoa Brown Bronzed and Beautiful Gift Set is available online at Cloud 10 Beauty and is on offer at the moment too!
