Rave review – Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze

Now I may live in Towie land, but I am not a girl that has embraced fake tanning.

Lets just say early experiences were not good.  Spray tans have resulted in me looking like an Oompa Loompa, despite asking for a natural glow. Whilst DIY application left me with streaky bits or orange hands.

Yes not good, so I consequently I have given any form of tanning a wide berth, embracing my pale natural self.

Check out these pasty pins from my before pictures.


This was untill I tried Cocoa Brown’s Gentle Bronze, £5.99. A moisturising lotion that with continued use develops into a beautiful natural looking tan.

I’m not going to lie, I looked at it and imediately thought ‘not for me’. She assured me how good it was though and that she used it herself.

I didn’t actually try it straight away, it took a positive review and photographic evidence, from Chloe at BranzenRouge to convince me to try it. I’m so glad that I did, because I love it. So much so that I’m nearly out, and need to pick up another tube.

This is so easy to use, builds to a very natural looking healthy glow, and doesn’t have that nasty fake tan smell.


I use a tanning mitt for application, as I just find it helps to keep my hands clean and improve overall finish of application.

The only negative I can think of is that I gone through the bottle rather quickly. I recon I would need to purchase this 1-2 times a month to maintain my tan. not such a biggie though as it is only £5.99 a bottle.

I am definately going to be repurchasing this on payday.

Have you tried anything from Cocoa Brown before? I’d love to here your thoughts below.

Bye for now, Katy 🙂
