Brand Spotlight: Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gels

Hi guys!

I haven’t done a product review in a while so I’m really excited to share this one with you!

As many of you know, I attended Marissa Carter’s Passion Pink Persistence event and got to take home two of Cocoa Brown‘s brand new products!

Instant Tan Bronzing Gel Matte

A first of its kind for Cocoa Brown! This instant tan gives a gorgeous glow and because it’s matte and non-comodengenic it can also be used on the face! As you can see on my hand below, the matte gel is free from any shimmer! I think it’s great Cocoa Brown brought out the two as it gives you more choice. Some days I might want a natural looking glow and others I could want my legs to shine bright like a diamond! 😛DSC_0058



My left leg has zero product on it while my right has one coat of the matte bronzing gel. I really like how natural and subtle this tan looks, there’s nothing worse than obvious fake tan! You can build the colour up with more layers so you can go darker if you wish.

A handy tip Marissa gave us was to mix this product in with your normal foundation to make it darker! I wish I had this after Hong Kong. When I got a tan I found my foundation too pale so I had to go out and buy a new one!

Instant Tan Bronzing Gel Shimmer


Oh my goodness gracious this tan is divine. I am in love! This product is my new go to product for nights out! It makes your legs look longer, leaner and sexier. 😉



I’m so annoyed, but the shimmer didn’t show up as well as I’d like in my pictures! But trust me, in person, my legs were shimmery as hell! 😛 Again, my right leg has one coat of the product on in comparison to my bare left leg.

I’m delighted with this product as I was contemplating buying the nuxe dry oil or even waiting till Cocoa Brown brought out their Golden Goddess oil, for a shimmery leg product but now I don’t have too!

This shimmer is gorgeous on your shoulder and collar bones too, I can’t wait to wear it with an off the shoulder top!

TheInstant Tan Bronzing Gels, €6.99, are available to pre-order on now,  in Cocoa Brown stockists from October 12th 2015 and coming to a Penneys near you soon!

Hope you guys enjoyed this review! Will you be getting CB’s new Instant Tans?

*I received or was sent these products but in no way was my opinion swayed and all are still my own 🙂
