I know we havent had much of a summer this year, which has driven more of us abroad, so as they may feel like a distant fading memory, it doesn't mean your tan has to fade too! So how do we maintain our post holiday glow, you ask? Cocoa Brown GENTLE BRONZE Gradual Tan
is a tinted moisturiser that will not only nourish your skin, it will leave you lightly bronzed ensuring your complexion is brighter than the weather. On top of this, Gentle Bronze contains Vitamin E and Panthenol which acts as a barrier for your skin against the inevitable chilly temperatures. As many of you know I work for Superdrug and we do stock the Cocoa Brown range, so i am slightly familiar with the products and i love the girly looking packaging. The products are mid range in price and if your a savvy shopper, you can normally get fab deals on the products too. The tan applies really nicely and gives you great natural looking tan, i have used gradual tans before and always looked tangoed, but not with this one, i love it! you dont really notice much of a difference after the first application but dont forget its a gradual tan, so it will gradually tan your body after a few applications - make it part of your bedtime routine. The lotion applies smoothly and it feels great on your skin

Hydration is key. Drinking plenty of water is not the only way to keep your skin hydrated. By using Cocoa Brown CHOCOLATE WHIP Oil-Free Body Moisturiser,£5.99, you can maintain a gorgeous even, tan by keeping your skin deeply moisturised and nourished.
Gradual Tanners enhance your post holiday glow while ensuring your tan is still natural very looking. This is where GENTLE BRONZE comes into play. As we are entering the winter months we need to adapt our tan from a ‘bronzed beach’ goddess to ‘warm glowing’ goddess and you can count on Gentle Bronze to remain naturally golden for a subtle winter hue.
How does it work?
Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze can be applied every day, to both moisturise your skin and give you a hint of colour. Gentle Bronze is not like other gradual tanners, there is a hint of colour so you can see where you are applying your tan therefore avoiding streaks or white patches and has no fake tan pong. Apply Gentle Bronze as you would body moisturiser, ensuring that it is well rubbed into your skin. Wait for the lotion to dry in before you get dressed and always wash your hands after use or try using a Pink Tanning Mitt if you don’t like using your hands.
Cocoa Brown Tan range is available in Boots, Penneys/Primark, Tesco, Dunnes, online via FeelUnique.com and in Irish pharmacies and salons nationwide.
