We all like a bit of friendly competition between beauty products right? Well today I'm putting Cocoa Brown to the test and comparing the new Night & Day Tan with the original 1 Hour Tan. Both tans were developed by the lovely Marissa Carter who was involved every step of the way. Her story inspired me, she really thought about who the tan was for and created something thats kind to skin, smells nice and is affordable for us tanning junkies. It's no wonder Cocoa Brown is flying off the selves...okay I admit, I may have something to do with that!
The naturally derived tans are gentle on sensitive/dry skin and are free of Parabens. I have eczema on my upper arms that Im pretty self-conscious about but neither tan irritates it or sticks onto the dry patches. It has accelerating agents that activates when applied to the skin that helps the tan to be absorbed, with no tacky or sticky residue leftover. This also means that the tan doesn't have time to react with oxygen so there's no horrible "biscuit" smell.
1 Hour Tan vs. Night & Day
1 Hour Tan I've been using this for a couple of months now and I have to say that I just love it. I've gone through a couple of bottles already and I immediately stocked up once I saw it in Primark. As the name suggests, it develops a nice natural tan in just one hour but you can leave it up to three hours if you prefer a darker tan. I love the ease of use; I either apply it in the morning, wait three hours and rinse it off or I apply it at night, shower in the morning and I'm tanned, ready for my day.
Night & Day Tan is the newest addiction and I can see it being just as popular. This is for those people who love a natural tan during the day but a darker colour at night. You can apply this before a night out and instantly have a gorgeous tan, then rinse it off the next morning leaving a lovely sun kissed glow.
