The reason I started blogging was because blogging is something I have wanted to do for AGES now as I always want to get my opinions across on things and also what drives me more to creating my own blog is when you are looking for a blog online and you cant find exactly what you are looking for. I have always been a detailed person when it comes to topics (especially beauty!) I enjoy therefore I think that blogging is a great way to share my thoughts and opinions!

Cocoa Brown Fake Tan Review!


So today I am going to review the Cocoa Brown fake tan by Marissa Carter.

I have been using Fake Tan for around 3 years now and have tried A LOT of tans! 

When looking for a tanner I want to find something that isn't too 'fake' looking but leaves me looking beautifully bronzed.  That's what we all want right? 

So usually I alternate between Fake Bake/ St Moriz & Solait as I find they all leave a beautiful bronzed look which I want, however, with tanners they usually don't smell too good and after a while the tan appears patchy and sort of scaly even after following the exfoliating procedures, etc, NOT what you want! 

So I recently the Cocoa Brown tan caught my eye when I was in Superdrug and as it was in a cute hot pink packaging so I thought I would give it a go!

 So I purchased the tan for about £7.99 (I also believe that Primark now sell the tan which is probably a bit cheaper!) 
I bought the 1 hour tan mousse
which claims to develop in just 1 hour, perfect for when your off out and have forgot to tan the night before! You can apply the tan then leave it either 1 hour for a light glow, 2 hours for a medium tan and 3 hours for a deeper colour. 
 Below is a picture of my leg before the tan and a picture of the tan after 1 hour of developing. 
 Before                            After     
As you can see above after just 1 hour it leaves a subtle golden glow, which I love and it is perfect for spring as it isn't too false looking.

I have now been using this tan for just over a week and I love it, it doesn't seem to go scaly like the other ones, thank god! It also doesnt smell to bad either, it claims to have a beautiful floral scent, I dont know about that as I personally think it smells like disinfectant, but it does smell 10 times better than previous tans I have tried. 

I apply the tan with a regular tanning mitt from Superdrug's own range and the night before I apply the tan I exfoliate with an exfoliating scrub and a exfoliating glove also from Super drugs own range.  I then moisturize with any body lotion (At the moment I use dove) and apply the tan the next morning and it seems to last all week. PERFECT!

Have you used this tan before/ what is your favorite fake tan?
