Cocoa Brown Faketan | Review

 Today I have two products from the brand Cocoa Brown to review, one is the Cocoa Brown '1 Hour Tan' and the other is Cocoa Brown 'Lovely Legs'. Until recently I had never tried any products from Cocoa Brown, despite seeing them in my local Primark and being a fake tan user.
 Firstly I have the Cocoa Brown '1 Hour Tan Mousse'* £7.99
When it comes to the application of this product, it's really easy! Simply by shaking the bottle, squirting a small amount onto a tanning mitt (such as the 'Self Tan Applicator Mitt'* £3.99 from Cocoa Brown) then use sweeping motions to apply, it couldn't be any simpler! 
For anyone who doesn't like the 'biscuit' smell fake tans usually have, this tan is for you! The first thing I noticed when using the tan was the fresh, floral scent which was lovely!  
The tan can be left on for 1 hour for a light glow, 2 hours for a medium tan and 3 hours if a deeper colour is preferred!
I left the tan on for 3 hours before washing it off which left a natural glow to my skin, almost a real sun tan finish rather than a fake tan finish which is great! 

For anyone who would prefer a darker finish from their tan, Cocoa Brown have now released the same tan but in a 'Dark' version and can be found online Here

Lastly I have Cocoa Brown 'Lovely Legs'* £7.99. This product 
isn't like the 1 hour tan which needs to develop, 'Lovely Legs' is an instant wash off tan. 
This product is used by Shaking for 20 seconds, spraying onto a tanning mitt and then buffing into skin which is really easy! 
This tan has the same floral scent of the 1 hour tan but isn't quite as noticeable.
The tan gives a darker colour than the one hour tan but still looks really natural even though on the picture above it does look slightly orangey, I promise it isn't! 

The great thing about this tan is that there isn't any commitment so is perfect for beginners! 

The whole range of Cocoa brown products can be found on the website here at along with tanning tips and other great bits! 
Cocoa Brown caN be found at Primark, superdrug and is now being sold in over 800 tesco stores over the uk! If you are in the USA it has recently been launched there too!
