Cocoa Brown One Hour Tan
This product is by Marissa Carter and the 1 Hour Tan is an express self tanning mousse which states it will develop into a beautiful and natural looking tan in just one hour.
Me being me and being a busy little bee, I didn't actually read that you only had to leave it on 1 hour so left it on overnight the first time I tried it out! The second time, after leaving it on for just over an hour, the colour was exactly the same so I suppose there was some merit in testing out that claim.

I've been using fake tan for years and mousse tan is my favourite, this mousse is definitely on the upper, more luxurious levels of mousse fake tan, the can is really easy to use and there is a generous amount in the can, you can use the nozzle at any angle and the foam itself is very creamy and easily blended into the backs of legs and arms which, for me at least, are my trouble areas!
There seemed to be no smell at all from this product which is apparently due to the accelerating ingredients in Cocoa Brown meaning that no DHA (the tanning ingredient with the biscuity smell) is left on the skin's surface and to be fair, that seems to ring true for me at least. They do say that it containst extracts of Tahitian Gardinia but to be honest I couldn't smell too much of anything at all, which I preferred.
Upon application of the luxurious foam I realised that this was a great tan for those with dry or scaly skin. Tan can often go patchy or scaly if your skin is very dry and so the moisturising effects of this tan will definitely help give the best application with no patches that you can get.
The mousse dries very very quickly and you can get dressed within minutes of applying although, as always, I would recommend dark and loose clothing.
The tan has not streaked on me any time I have used it, is non sticky and the colour is a golden brown that as you can see from the pictures, is very natural and doesn't look TOWIE style fake.
The biggest surprise to me was that this tan is only £7.99 delivered from Feelunique http://www.feelunique.com/p/Cocoa-Brown-One-Hour-Tan-Mousse-150ml
That is an absolutely bargain price for such a brilliant product and, while I got the review can for free, I will most definitely be purchasing more and recommending it to all I had previously recommended Vita Liberata and Fake Bake, it does the same level of a job but for about £20 less money!
