I am someone who never fake tans, there are a lot of reasons for this including the smell, the fact that you normally have to leave it on for ages and that I find it so hard to not get it patchy. When Cocoa Brown first contacted me asking if I would like to review one of their products it didn’t appeal to me, however when they mentioned that they have a product which you wash off after an hour I was immediately interested.
Cocoa Browns One Hour Tan Mousse (£7.99*) can give you a light glow in just one hour, however it can be left on longer if you want to achieve darker results. I followed the instruction by exfoliating a few days before I wanted to tan, then showering on the day I was going to use the product. As instructed I squirted the product onto the tanning mitt and applied using a stroking motion all over. It sunk into the skin quickly and after an hour I jumped into the shower and rinsed it off.
I was actually surprised that I was left with a light brown tan that wasn’t streaky at all, also the smell was faint and was gone by the next day when I showered again. It lasted for around 5 days and it’s something I will be using again. Now whilst I haven’t been fully converted to tan regularly (I don’t think I ever will) I will definitely be using it for special occasions and when I want to add some colour to my legs!
