Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gel Matte and Shimmer Review

Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Bronzing Gel Review


Fake tan can give you a gorgeous tanned glow even when the sun isn’t shining.  In these grey autumn and winter months you might want to turn to fake tan for Christmas events. You’ll feel a bit more confident to show a little skin – whether that’s shorter sleeves or in a cocktail dress.

Cocoa Brown has the best low price fake tan in my opinion.  For those that are worried about streaks when fake tanning.  Or those that don’t have time to do a fake tan application then what is the option?

The new Cocoa Brown wash off gel tanners in either shimmer or matte are perfect for a quick fix.  They  can even be used on the go if you have to do a quick change after work for a night out.  They apply with ease and give you that holiday glow without the worry of streaks. No need to worry about that fake tan smell or having to wait for it to develop.

There are so many different ways to use the wash off tanners from enhancing your normal fake tan when it starts to wear away to prolong it to making yourself look more bronzed on holiday if you have started to look a bit red so you don’t look like a lobster in your holiday snaps or even to add to your foundation during the summer to save money on
having to buy a darker foundation.


For a subtle, healthy glow I definitely recommend the Cocoa Brown Instant Tan in Matte as it looks so natural, for a night out or party I would recommend the shimmer tan for your arms, legs and décolleté as it will enhance your skin and make you look healthy and radiant especially in photos.

Application of both the tans is very easy.  Use a mitt such as the Cocoa Brown Double Sided Deluxe Pink Tanning Mitt.  The gel glides on without streaking and just needs a little buffing in.  The colour looks dark when you squeeze it out of the tube but fear not.   The tan is lightweight and doesn’t clog the pores so it is fine to use on the face and body.  The scent is lovely, the same as the rest of the range – Tahitian Gardenia.  It covers any imperfections and thread veins with ease so you can use it instead of wearing tights.

I will definitely be taking this with me on my upcoming trip to Australia as I will be away for three weeks with no way to fake tan.  This might sound silly as Australia is very hot but I don’t tan well.  Even in the 43 degree heat of Dubai I barely got any colour at all! So this will be great to use for New Year so I don’t look like a ghost in pictures.

You can buy the Instant Tan Bronzing Gels for just £5.99 or €6.99, from and in Cocoa Brown stockists now.
