Yep they’ve finally gone and done it! Cocoa Brown have released an instant tan! They’ve answered our tanning prayers 🙂
Us bloggers got all dolled up and headed to The Shelbourne this past Sunday where we were treated to a lovely and pink afternoon by Marissa and the Cocoa Brown girls. We were showered with gifts and the new Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gels were unleashed on us.
Marissa has created two different Instant Tan Bronzing Gels. One is matte.
And the other has shimmer running through it.
Here’s the matte one Bronzing Gel on my hand.
And here you can see the matte and the shimmer bronzing gel side by side.
They both differ in consistency slightly, the matte one is more of a fluid gel, where as the one with the shimmer is, well more of a gel texture 🙂
Both of the Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gel’s apply to the skin super easy, there’s not much faffing about and they dry really quickly too. You can apply as many layers of them as you need to build up the colour you want without the product going patchy as they are a thin gel and blend really well. Added bonus they smell really nice too 🙂
Obviously, I’ve only had these babies since Sunday so I haven’t given them a full road test yet, but first impressions are really good.
I applied them on both my legs to give you a better look at the finish you are left with. I applied with my hands, but of course you can use a mitt if you want too. (Cocoa Brown have just brought out a double sided one fyi 🙂
Here’s my pasty leg with nothing on it.
I applied a couple of coats of the matte instant tan.
Then it’s time for the shimmer instant tan. Again, my other pasty leg :p
Then a couple of coats of the shimmer tan.
The shimmer is hard to pick up on my camera, but there’s alot of shimmer going on, I promise.
It really is tanning in an instant, and the product is splash proof, thank god with unpredictable weather like ours 🙂
I for one am so happy about these releases. I hold my hands up and admit I am such a lazy tanner, it’s one of my least favourite things to do, so I love a good instant tan, it just takes the effort out of it really. Also if you’re pale like me and your developing tan doesn’t always develop enough, it’s handy to have something like this in your beauty drawer for back up.
Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gel should be hitting the shelves in Penneys stores near you very soon or you can order from Cloud10beauty here. They will both be €6.99 for 150ml tube.
Will you be picking one or both of them up? Let me know what you think.
