I am a serious fake tan addict and have tried nearly every brand under the sun and have lots of favourites when it comes to faking that golden glow.
When it comes to faking it, darker is better in my opinion so I go for products that promise to have me looking like I just came back from holidays.
There are so many products out there promising everything from rich scents, deep glows and gradual hints for those that are wary so there really is something for everyone.
Cocoa Brown are an Irish tanning brand that have really exploded onto the scene with their range and are quickly becoming the go-to brand around these parts.
For some strange reason, I never tried their tans so when I got the chance to review their *1 Hour Tan*, I jumped at the chance!
Read on to see what I thought!
What They Say
This revolutionary speedy tan has accelerating ingredients so that it can develop into a rich colour in just 1 hour.
This tan has a signature Gardenia scent and is moisturizing and kind enough to be used on both the face and body.
The easy-to-apply mousse is fast-drying and non-sticky and will fade evenly after about 5 days.
What I Say
I love the packaging of this tan, it's sturdy with a pump applicator which is handy and of course I'm a fan of the girly pink colour.
Usually mousse formulas can leave the skin feeling quite dry but I don't feel that with this tan and the scent is lovely and floral.
I use a tanning mitt to apply it and found that it applied and blended easily without streaking and developed quickly after 1 hour.
After rinsing off the guide colour, the tan lasted well and faded nicely without going patchy.
As with all tans, there is a slight biscuit smell but it's far less noticeable compared to other tans that I've tried.
All in all, this is a great tan and perfect for using for a night out or special occasion when you don't have enough time to wait for an overnight tan to develop.
Check it out girls!
