Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Review


Cocoa Brown tan seems like it is everywhere these days and it's easy to see why after I trialled this fantastic gradual tan. I have used it three or four times and had a shower everyday but it still leaves a gorgeous sun kissed glow. It is very subtle so perfect for fake tan newbies. It is definitely so much easier to use than the day to night tanning mousse I have tried from Cocoa Brown before. 

I won't lie, it is a very unappealing looking brown sludge you apply but you can see the colour coming up instantly and it doesn't have a nasty smell. My family were complimenting me on Cocoa Brown's signature Tahitian scent. 

One thing I noticed is that it is incredible moisturising! My skin has never felt so soft and smooth I'm delighted with this product which I bought in Penneys for €6! Such a bargain and well worth it as I have a feeling it will last me a while. 

I apply it to my chest, neck, shoulders and arms daily and it gives me such a natural just back from holidays glow that doesn't streak one bit! I also love how incredibly moisturising it is as it's like a 2 for 1 -tan and body lotion!  The packaging even matches my nails.


It's kind of hard to photograph as it's so subtle but this would be perfect for fair skinned girls as a night out tan or for anyone who is a tanning newbie, to be honest this is so easy to apply I think it will be sticking to this beauty daily now :)


Tried to take some photos on the iPad, a tad difficult but you get the idea, my face and neck and arms match!


Verdict: the perfect gradual tanner for that sun kissed look. It is impossible to streak and will leave your skin silky smooth! Have you used Gentle Bronze yet? 




  1. Love the sound of this, sounds like a lovely tan! I love the packaging too, so girly!

    1. The packaging is gorgeous! So girly, and different to other tans on the market. X

  2. Im going to try this, i never have much faith in fake tan as im quite fair and some fake tans go a strange shade on my skin and it just looks nasty but this looks on you how i imagine it SHOULD look... watch this space lol! thanks for this review, i dont know how i chose product before beauty blogs! love from Miss Ellie@ElleNicholls (its insisting i post this comment from my google acc i.d but i rarely use it!)

  3. I think this would be a good match for your fair skin! It's more of a moisturiser than a tan, I have been applying it everyday so I am starting to get more tanned looking but for a light glow if you only wanted to apply it maybe twice a week should be perfect for you :) it's so moisturising too...let me know what you think if you decide to try it out xx
