Cocoa Brown One Hour Tan Review

I've had this product in my stash for a little while now but I have been waiting for my natural tan to fade in order to put it to the test properly. After rocking a natural tan for a few weeks following my holiday in Ibiza i think its safe to say i'm now back to my natural pasty white colour ready for winter, or I was! 
I'm now sporting one of the most natural looking tans to come out of a can thanks to Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan*.
Seriously, this sits quite happily alongside the fake tan heavy weights such as Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan and St Tropez Gradual Tan in terms of natural, non-orange, streak-free colour. I am impressed!

The brainchild of Irish beauty guru and business woman Marissa Carter, this mouse is a light weight formula that is not at all sticky and doesn't have even the slightest hint of the dreaded biscuity smell; in fact it smells really pleasantly floral. It is really fast drying which can make it slightly tricky to apply (my advice is to work on small areas ensuring you have smoothed it in well with a tanning mitt to avoid any unwanted white patches) but ideal for anyone in a hurry. In fact everything about this product makes it ideal for people who want a quick, no fuss tan. You can literally get dressed and be out the door within minutes of applying it and it very quickly develops into a gorgeous colour thanks to the accelerating agents that are activated as soon as the product comes into contact with skin.

I applied the tan 4 days ago now and the colour is still visible but fading very evenly, not bad at all for a fake tan that will set you back less than a tenner. All in all it is a big *thumbs up* from me!

Cocoa Brown one hour tan is available nationwide in selected Primark stores and from for £7.99
