Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan review

I have loved tanning for years and over time, I have tried many different brands and style of tans, I love comparing them. When Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan came to my attention, I just had to try it!

The one hour tan is supposed to do just that, give you a natural looking tan in just 60 minutes. The accelerating ingredients mean it is a speedy tan so starts to develop after this time, if you want a darker tan, you can leave it on for up to 3 hours. With being a mum and the fact I'm exhausted by 6pm, a speedy tan sounded exactly what I needed!

It is a mousse which is my preferred formulation of tan, I find they dry quickly and I find them easier to apply and blend than sprays however they do sometimes dry your skin out. The cocoa brown 1 hour tan isn't too drying, especially if you're good at prepping your skin first with a scrub and moisturiser. I don't experience any streaking when I use this which s why I love it so much but I guess I am more of an 'experienced' tanner. It claims to not have that tell-tale scent of fake tan but I don't think you can ever get away with it; it does smell like fake tan just like any others but I'm ok with that.

The colour is extremely natural which is why this is probably my favourite tan I've tried so far. It never looks orange, it's a gorgeous natural brown however I do find I have to leave it on longer than 3 hours to get the tan I want. I still have to use it overnight; I found that after 1 hour my skin tone hadn't really got any darker at all and the same after 3 hours.
Overall I think this is a pretty good tan with a super natural colour but is definitely not a 1 hour tan for me.
