Chocolate Week With Cocoa Brown



For those of you who don't know, next week (Oct 13th-19th) is national chocolate week! Now who is excited?! I for one have a mega sweet tooth so any excuse to munch on chocolate for a whole week straight is something I'm bound to celebrate. 

I'm sure many of you will have heard of Cocoa Brown by now, and if you haven't then you really should have; the world is obsessed with their products right now! The packaging is so girly and quirky that you cannot help but be drawn towards it on the shelves of Superdrug! I use the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan once a week, and safe to say it has become my staple tanning product. As you can see from the picture it goes on dark, develops darker, but after just an hour you can wash the excess off to reveal a gorgeous natural tan. I personally would recommend leaving this on overnight as I do like to go quite dark with my tan! The smooth shaving foam like texture (wow I'm good with words) also helps with the application, and even though I'm someone who is notoriously bad at applying fake tan this always seems to go on relatively smooth and streak free! 

I always moisturize the day after tanning as I always think it not only enhances your tan but makes the skin look a lot healthier. At the moment I have been using the Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip Moisturizer*, which I can confirm is as sweet as it sounds. This being an oil free moisturizer apparently helps to keep your tan perfect for up to seven days unlike other moisturizers which can make false tan fade and go patchy. Personally I can't say I've noticed a huge difference as my tan always stays in pretty good condition anyway throughout the week, but oh my this smells divine! If you love chocolate scented things then this is definitely for you; I literally could not stop sniffing myself. To add to this it sank into my skin pretty quickly too which is always a bonus as I can't stand doing the naked dance waiting on it to dry at this time of year. Oh, and it leaves absolutely no residue!

Overall, I think this has really helped keep my skin hydrated and healthy looking and Lewis keeps telling me I smell nice, which is always good to hear! Yet another Cocoa Brown offering that I have become completely addicted to! 

Do you guys like Cocoa brown? which are your favourite products?

  5. I love the Chocolate Whip, it's such a nice moisturiser! Although I agree my tan normally fades evenly anyway.
