Cocoa Brown: Review

Who is after that amazing Winter glow? I know I sure am, especially now my natural Summer tan has gone and I'm officially the whitest person ever! 

I have worn St. Moriz for years now and although I can't fault the price at £2.99,I just hate the way it come off my skin and it's smell. It never seems to come off nicely and it's got that biscuit smell we all know and hate! When I tried to scrub St.Moriz off in the shower it never seems to want to come off in certain areas like my arm crease and around my neck. Does anyone else have this problem? 

After reading a number of review on Twitter/Instagram about the 'Cocoa Brown 1 hour Tan' and 'Toughstuff Scrub' I just had to get my hands on some. Getting my hands on these products were harder than I thought! I literally tried most Superdrugs and Tescos I could think of and I had Cocoa Brown and Tesco tweeting me to check different stores. Thanks again for the help and quick responses. I eventually got some in Superdrug Sunderland woohoo! I made my Dad drive me there on his day off so I could just jump out whilst he parked up. Princess treat or what ha. When I got to Superdrug they had a buy 1 product and get another half price so I was over the moon. I got both products, the tan was £7.99 and the scrub was £4.99 so all together £10.50 ish. 

What I hate most about tanning is when I put it on the night before and it goes all over my white bed sheets. Using the '1 hour tan' has officially sorted this problem. You can leave it on for literally 1 hour and it develops so well. I have used it a few times now and leaving it on a little longer does give that dark tone, obviously just depends how dark you want or how much time you have. Before tanning I would normally moisturise , well not my whole body but definitely my knees, ankle and elbows because I always found that tan normally goes all horrible in them certain areas. This tanning mousse is such a light, smooth and moisture tan so if you forget to moisturise or simple can't be bothered I really doesn't matter. The mousse is honestly so moisturing on your skin and it does that job for you. 

When you are applying the mousse with your mit it is a brown colour just like St.Moriz so you can actually see where you still need to apply. As you can see from these before and after picture, the results are GREAT. I had only left the tan on for just over 1 hour and I was so pleased. In my opinion its a quick and easy way to apply tan before getting in the shower before your night out. I always found if I left the St.Moritz on for a hour or so then washed it off the tan wouldn't stay on, at all. So paying that extra few pounds makes it well worth it. 

Now for the 'Tough Stuff' body scrub. This body scrub is a 3
in 1 body scrub,it prepares skin for Cocoa Brown tan, it removes stubborn old tan and exfoliates your body. I can honestly say it does exactly what it says on the bottle and more. I mean the scrub is pretty and pink and smells amazing what more could a girl WANT! When applying this body scrub I always use a exfoliating bath ball just so I can build up a lather on my skin and the scrub will then cover a bigger area. The scrub doesn't make my skin red or sore it literally just removes any unwanted tan. I have just ran out of this produce and can't wait to restock as I know I will be apply much more tan over the Christmas period. eeeeeeeeek! 1st of December tomorrow how exciting! You can buy Cocoa Brown products from Primark, Superdrug, Tesco and Lloyds Pharmacy. Give it ago, I promise you won't be disappointed. 

Here are a few pictures with me wearing Cocoa Brown tan and I honestly don't think I will ever go back to St.Moriz as the results are so natural and it has saved alot of time and effort. Cocoa Brown definitely has made my tanning process much more enjoyable so Thank You.
I would also like to add, the Cocoa Brown twitter account will always respond to your tweets if you have a query or even just for a chat. They really are very lovely.
