This review post is long overdue. With skin troubles, a move and constantly being on the go with George, tanning has not been an option. I have wanted to do it for so long but just never got around to it. Well now I’ve actually used this a few times, I can finally post my thoughts about the Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs Spray*.
Part of the Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter tanning range, Lovely Legs is an instant tanner that can be washed off at the end of the night with soapy water. The shade is Medium Bronze and can easily be built up for a more intense tan. It’s described as makeup for your legs so it’s great for smoothing out imperfections on your skin. It’s water resistant so if you get caught in the rain on a night out, it won’t go all streaky, so don’t worry you won’t be leaving a watery brown trail around the night club, it needs soap in order for it to come off.
I apply mine with the Cocoa Brown Tanning Mitt* and it leaves such a gorgeous streak free finish. I don’t think I’ve had any streaks with any of the Cocoa Brown tanning products. The scent is just gorgeous, a real fruity scent that doesn’t resemble the awful biscuit smell at all, it’s brilliant. I apply a light layer first and then go in with more if I want a deeper colour. The finished result is super soft, natural looking tanned pins. I wish this product had been around when I used to go clubbing at 18, I would have been obsessed with it, I just know it.
It lasts really well on the skin and glides on so well. Since I showered the night after using it, it obviously only lasted a day but didn’t fade throughout the time I did have it on. It’s such a effortless product that’s great for nights out or even touching up an old tan.
I’ve used (and reviewed) the Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze gradual tanner and loved that as well, both offer amazingly natural results. I also have the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse* to try which I think I will actually use tonight as I quite fancy having a little tan at the moment.
If you’re hesitant to try any fake tanners because of the smell, formula or even scared about looking as though you’ve been tangoed, definitely check out Cocoa Brown. A brilliant affordable brand that smells great, lasts brilliantly well and the tan can be tailored to the colour you want, it’s a great line and I can’t wait to try more, preferably all of the line!
Lovely Legs is £7.99 and I’d say I’ve used about a third of the can with three applications so it won’t last ages but if you’re new to tanning and want to try an instant tanner first, it’s definitely worth the price tag. It’s a brilliant product so I feel it’s worth the price anyway. This line is now available from a huge variety of stores but the places I know best are Superdrug and Feel Unique.
