Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze

Last week I was delighted to be invited along to the Cocoa Brown Spring Collection Cocktail Party at VCC. I met some fabulous new bloggers and got to mingle with Marissa Carter and hear all about her experience at the Oscars in LA! I had an amazing evening. I left the event with a bag full of new goodies to try out.

This week I decided to give the Gentle Bronze* a try. Gentle Bronze is one of three products included in the Cocoa Brown Spring Launch. I usually like a bronzed glow 7 days a week so I thought this would be perfect for weekdays when all you need is a subtle bronzed look. It is a moisturiser which also contains a hint of tan. If applied every day it creates a tanned glow and allows you to build up a colour from a light glow to a gentle bronze.

What Marissa says about Gentle Bronze- ‘Gentle Bronze is the perfect tan for those ladies who want a dualaction product that that will both moisturise their skin and give them a hint of colour. For women who don’t usually tan, Gentle Bronze is a brilliant introduction and will show them exactly what they were missing out on!'

I applied the product on Wednesday evening and by Thursday morning my skin had a natural tanned glow. The moisturiser has a hint of colour in it so it is easy to apply and you can immediately spot if you have missed patches. It feels so light and luxurious on your skin, and left my skin feeling soft and hydrated, it really is a gorgeous product! I was thrilled with the colour I had the next morning, it was slightly darker than I anticipated but I was very happy with the results. I applied the Moisturiser again last night so I have a deeper colour for the weekend! See before and after pictures below-

Cocoa Brown products are available nationwide at Boots, Penneys, Superdrug, Tescos and several pharmacies across the country.

  1. Hey Amy! Loved the post.. I just picked up gentle bronze from Cara yesterday so I'm excited to try it out.. even though I have naturally 'tanned' skin.. I hope this works as well as the one hour tan does for covering scars and leaving that radiant look! :)
    I'm also new to the blogging world so check out my blog if you have a spare few minute!
