With its bright pink bottle and cheap price tag (£7.99) this Cocoa Brown ‘One Hour Tan’* by Marissa Carter will tempt women everywhere. After not wearing fake tan for well over a month I felt it was time to look bronzed again and as I had a clean slate to work with I thought I’d try something new. To apply this tan I used the mitt by Cocoa Brown which is only £2.99 and makes it so much easier. The product comes out as a light brown substance which looks like whipped cream/mousse. It seems to have a lot of air in as it dried in seconds which gives it a big thumbs up for me as I hate the sticky, wet feeling you get when you’ve just applied tan. However, it seems this product doesn’t go too far and you have to squirt out more than you’d expect. Once applied I instantly had a bit of a glow. Like with all fake tans you don’t ever smell too gorgeous but this product doesn’t have an offensive smell and isn’t quite so strong as some others. I left this tan on overnight as I didn’t feel it would’ve been dark enough for me after just one hour. In the morning when I woke up I was expecting terribly orange bedsheets like I usually find but I was so surprised that I only could see a very faint mark of tan. I think it is because this tan dries and sinks into your skin so quickly. When I was in the shower I was surprised I didn’t see lots of tan running off of my body which worried me at first because I thought this meant I’d look really orange. However, once out of the shower it had dulled down and looked really good.
In conclusion: If you like a subtle and natural looking glow then washing it off after 1 or 2 hours may be enough for you but if you’re a fake tan junkie like me then you’re best off putting it on either in the morning and washing it off before a night out or just before bed and washing it off the next morning. I love the colour of this tan and I love that it dries fast! I applied this on Friday and it is now Wednesday and I still look fairly brown. This tan is definitely worth trying especially because it is at such a bargain price!
