Happy weekend. Hope everyone has a great weekend. My weekend isn’t going to be so interesting as it’s only work and college work!
Anyway, I’m sure you’ve all heard of Cocoa Browns new Bronzing Gels! If you’ve been reading my recent posts, you’ll know that I luckily attended the product launch for these two fab new products. You can read all about the day here.
The long awaited announcement revealed Instant Bronzing Gels that are available in both matte and shimmer.
As always with Cocoa Brown, there’s no fake tan smell that make some people run for the hills. All Cocoa Brown products have a signature scent, which leaves you smelling amazing, not like you’ve just rolled in a puddle of tan!
For those last minute decisions where you just aren’t prepared or in a hurry, this is where these Bronzing Gels are a life saver! Instant colour and washes off in the shower. No more waiting around for your tan to develop.
Whether you’re in a hurry or not, it’s never good waiting for your tan to dry, terrified of touching anything while you’re drying! These Bronzing Gels dry instantly, so you can apply when you’re in a rush and you’ll be ready in no time!
One thing I’m loving is the natural glow it leaves on your face (maybe the shimmer isn’t so natural!) so for those no makeup days, a little bit of the matte gel will give you a fab instant colour.
Here’s the top tanning tips for Marissa Carter of Cocoa Brown.
Use a Cocoa Brown Double Sided Deluxe Pink Velvet Tanning Mitt to apply. Dispense a large coin-sized amount of the Bronzing Gel on the mitt and use soft, circular motions to buff the tan on your skin
Use the ‘Shimmer’ Bronzing Gel to highlight. Apply on cheekbones, down the front of your legs and on your shoulders for an instant radiant complexion.
Add a dash of the ‘Matte’ Bronzing Gel to your foundation for a bronzed makeup look.
Use a contouring makeup brush to apply the Instant Bronzing Gel to contour your face over or instead of makeup.
I love that there’s the option of matte and shimmer. Usually shimmer tans are basically the same as matte, just an added bit of sparkle. But you can see in the photos here that there is such a difference!
The matte gel I absolutely fell in love with. It gives a great instant colour and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky and is so easy to apply. I’m not usually an instant tan fan, but I think this has changed my mind! Very impressed 🙂
I never go for a shimmer tan. I use to always go for it when I first started wearing tan, which was awful! So I think that’s what turned me off any tans that have a shimmer in them. But this one I really liked! I wouldn’t go for it during the day (like I said I’m not a shimmer fan!) but for a night out it’s absolutely gorgeous. Especially for those unexpected nights out it’s perfect!
Over all, I am so impressed! Two more amazing Cocoa Brown products.
Both Instant Bronzing Gels in matte and shimmer are available for €6.99 are available to pre-order now from www.Cloud10Beauty.com and in Cocoa Brown stockists from October 12th 2015.
