Preparing for Summer with Cocoa Brown

With a couple more days until Summer officially begins in Australia it is the perfect time to start preparing for the warmer months. Not only will it mean that you can leave the house without a trillion layers - yippee - but for the first time in a long time skin will be shown.


Whether you gravitate towards dresses and skirts or shorts, it is important to make sure those legs are looking good. Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter is a popular tanning brand in the UK. Not only do they have 1 hour self-tanner but they also have a range of skincare designed to keep your tan and skin looking the best. Begin preparing for summer with their Tough Stuff 3 in 1 Body Scrub* which is designed to remove the stubborn left-over tan you can't get rid off, exfoliates and prepares your skin for the new tan. This is a very dense exfoliator that feels quite tough. It spreads easily in the shower, lathers up to give you good coverage, and leaves your skin feeling fresh. I also love the fact that despite being a body exfoliator  it comes in a tube. Nice and simple! I've used exfoliators in tubs before and it is a nightmare. You can buy Tough Stuff for $15.95.

I adore the Chocolate Whip* which is a oil-free body moisturiser with Vitamin E & Panthenol. You can use this before you tan, as a normal everyday body moisturiser (even if you don't have a tan on) and to prolong your tan and help your tan to fade nice and evenly. It is very light-weight and sinks in super quickly which is fantastic! It feels instantly moisturising and this feeling lasts all day. A lot of body moisturisers are too thick, heavy and slow to absorb to use as a hand cream but not the Chocolate Whip! I adore using this as a hand cream because it literally sinks into your skin within seconds leaving no residue behind. A word of warning though...it doesn't smell like chocolate! Instead it smells like cocoa and gardenia, absolutely divine...just not like chocolate!
