Review: Cocoa Brown Instant Bronzing Gels

I'm a very last minute person and often when I decide to go out I have to apply instant tan. I haven't come across any that I like other than Sally Hansen, so I'm always on the look for a new tan. Cocoa Brown is well known in the international market for being a brilliant tan, and I've put their new bronzing gels to the test. 

I'm always very skeptical of instant tans as I find a lot of them don't give enough coverage, they go patchy after a few hours or they go streaky when we get caught in the rain! The packaging is so pretty, as per Cocoa Brown style. It is in a tube container and the colour is hot pink with cute patterns. I got the bronzing gels in both matte and shimmer and I am so impressed.

You need to put in zero effort to apply this tan as it glides on to the skin easily and has fantastic coverage. I have some really prominent blue veins on my legs and they were not noticeable at all when I applied Cocoa Brown Bronzing Gel. It gives the skin a gorgeous natural, bronze glow, You are guaranteed not to look orange. Another thing I love about this tan is that it doesn't dry extremely quickly, so you have a bit of time to blend the tan to your liking. The tan is completely water resistant so you don't need to worry about getting caught in the rain.

They have a gorgeous smell as they are scented with Tahitian Gardenia. I know a lot of you ladies like to tan your face also and the Cocoa Brown range is perfect for this. The products are noncomedogenic so they won't clog your pores or cause breakouts. The tan is also very easy to remove. I used tough stuff from Cocoa Brown and I will review this product soon also.

I am a huge fan of matte tans, but I applied the shimmer along the tops of my shoulders and collar bones. This almost contoured my figure and gave such a gorgeous glow to my skin. These tans cost only €6.99 which is a bargain. You can get these tans in Penneys stores nationwide.  and many pharmacies around Ireland. 

I hope you enjoyed my review!
Lots of love,
