Review - Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip Oil-Free Body Moisturiser
I was absolutely delighted when this little beauty landed on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago. I really wanted to put this product through its paces before reviewing it! I wanted to use it during tanning application and afterwards to help prolong my tan too.
My first impressions were that the tube was a nice, generous size and when I squeezed a bit onto my hand...oh my god, that beautiful smell! It features of course Cocoa Brown's signature scent of Tahitian Gardenia but with a chocolate twist. It is simply divine, I have never smelled a more pleasant body lotion.
I firstly applied this to my elbows, hands, knees and feet just prior to applying my Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan. The lotion is of a nice creamy texture, though not too thick. The tan applied really well and I was not left with any dark patches. The following evening, I applied this all over in order to help to prolong my tan. As this lotion is oil free, I felt it absorbed into my skin a lot quicker than regular lotions, which is perfect for me now at this time of year, it's too cold to run around feeling all sticky with moisturiser!
I applied this lotion all over for a full week after I applied my tan, and I am most impressed with the results. Although my tan had faded a little, the lotion definitely helped to prolong it and it had faded in a very even manner and I was not left with any patchy tan on me! This really is a wonder product in my opinion. I will never fake tan again without this moisturiser!
This moisturiser is by far, the most effective I have ever came across. It ticks all the boxes and it does exactly what it says. I would also enjoy using this product alone, even if I was not wearing any tan but just because I am also addicted to the scent, and my skin feels so nice and beautifully moisturised afterward.
I would love to see a tinted version of this moisturiser! The same consistency, the same beautiful scent but one which gives us a subtle glow. That would be awesome!
