Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tanning Mousse

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tanning Mousse

One of my New Year’s resolutions this year with a friend was to go to town at least once a month. Last year I probably went to town twice in the entire year so this is going to be a challenge. One thing I cannot go to town without is a tan! Cocoa Brown sent me some of their 1 Hour Tan Mousse* and the Instant Tan Bronzing Gel in Matte* to put to the test on my nights out.

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse


Every gradual tan I’ve ever used has had to be applied at night and slept in before being washed off the next day to leave you with a glow. What I LOVE about Cocoa Brown’s 1 Hour Tan Mousse is that you can apply it in the day and then wash it off before you go out, the tan then continues to develop overnight without having to sleep with it on. The tan can be left on for as little as one hour and still has the same effects. I find this so much more convenient to use than other gradual tans.

I will warn anyone who is going to use the Tanning Mousse that you do need to give it a good shake before use and make sure when you squirt the mousse to hold the can upside down so it doesn’t spray everywhere. I made this mistake but luckily I had a large towel down so didn’t ruin my carpet. I normally apply my fake tan with a mitt but an old sock works really well also. The mousse comes out brown in colour so you can easily see where you have applied the tan to already. I always use circular motions to make sure the tan rubs in evenly.


Cocoa Brown Tan is the most natural looking fake tanning product I have ever used! I cannot even explain to you how flawless the tan looks even without exfoliating before hand, the tan comes out evenly and looks so natural. Of all the self tan products I have tried Cocoa Brown is definitely my favourite and I’ve tried a lot of self tanners from St Moriz to Fake Bake. Cocoa Brown does have that biscuit like tan smell other products have but it’s not as strong so is hardly noticeable. I also used the Cocoa Brown Tan Mousse on my face and even on the parts of my skin that were dry it developed evenly and gave me a really natural looking glow. Even my boyfriend was impressed by how natural it looked.

I cannot rave about Cocoa Brown enough and the confidence their self tan gives me. It’s reasonably priced at £7.99 and I will definitely be purchasing this again. It’s such a quick and easy product to use and produces amazing results for a flawless tan.
