I think its well known by now that I am not the biggest fan of fake tan... mainly because I think a lot of girls over do it however I may have just been converted!
Ok I've definitely been converted, and its because of Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan by Marissa Carter. I realise I'm a bit late to the game with this one, but like I said I wasn't a fan of fake tan. I've tried many in the past normally resulting in a streaky, smelly, way to dark for my skin tone mess (not to mention the suffering of my poor sensitive skin). Now though I can join the rest of you (the one's that don't look like Umpa Lumpa's anyway) in looking sunkissed and bronzed!
"In just 1 hour this revolutionary, speedy self tan develops into a rich cocoa brown colour.
Expertly formulated to be long-lasting and fade evenly.
Accelerating ingredients means the tan only needs to be left on the skin for 1 hour and can be rinsed off after that.
If you prefer a deeper tan you can leave the mousse on your skin for up to three hours and then rinse.
You will find this tan easy to apply, fast drying and non-sticky.
We recommend that you apply with a tanning mitt."
|Before/Applying/Just After Rinsing (this picture does not do it justice!)|
I applied the tan with the CB tanning mitt, and it was so simple. I could see where the tan was which meant no streaks (Hurray!). It also dried so quickly that by the time I had put the cap back on the tan I could sit down without worrying about turning my sofa brown. Being my pale self I thought an hour was definitely enough time so I rinsed and wow I already saw a pretty sun-kissed look. I was delighted, never before had a tan looked so natural on me. I then went to bed and by the next morning I noticed that it had developed more, but only to a more subtle bronzed look nothing overpowering. I really cannot rave about this product enough!
...I can't wait for the summer no more pastey Irish girl!
