There are some new products from Cocoa Brown, so you can probably tell how excited I have been to try them out and they do not disappoint. The Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gels* are the latest launch from the brand, which have come just in time for the party season as they are wash off bronzing gels that come in both matte and shimmer versions, perfect for getting your tan on at a moments notice!
Both bronzing gels have a lightweight non-sticky gel formula, which means that application is easy. You can use the new Cocoa Brown Double Sided Deluxe Pink Velvet Tanning Mitt*, which is beautifully soft and thick and ensures a streak free application. It dries instantaneously which means you can apply and get dressed straight away, making it perfect for when you are in a rush. They are also scented with Cocoa Brown’s signature Tahitian Gardenia scent, so leave a lovely fragrance on the skin rather tan that nasty biscuit scent you often associate with fake tans! I actually tried the matte version on my face too, which is something I rarely do with body products as I break out at the drop of a hat, but these are non-comodengenic so can be used no problem on the face, it gave me a lovely color and base for my makeup.
The above picture shows how the gels look straight out of the tube which may look a bit scary, but it was just to show the difference between them with and without shimmer. When blended into the skin, both the matte and shimmer versions provide a natural looking tan, so you can rest assured you won’t look like a tangerine for your big night out. The shimmer is quite subtle too, so will just add a touch of sparkle to your limbs rather than making you look like a glitter ball, it is great for adding that extra highlight to front of your legs and also on your décolletage where it will catch the light. I personally prefer the matte version for giving a natural glow, but the shimmer is definitely a great option for the party season. Then of course, they just wash off in the shower when you are done!
Both Cocoa Brown Instant Tanning Gels cost £6.99, they are not available in the US yet, but you can order online from Cloud 10 Beauty, which offers Worldwide shipping.
