Brand Spotlight: Cocoa Brown

For this month’s brand spotlight, I decided to focus on a brand that almost everyone has heard of and one that I absolutely love. Cocoa Brown! Cocoa Brown have a considerable amount of products in their range, so I thought I would pick out a few of my favourites to feature in my brand spotlight series. 1 hour tan I suppose I should start with the obvious one. Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan is the original product from Marissa Carter. Originally launched in November 2012, Cocoa Brown now sells at a rate of 3 bottles a minute! No matter what line of business you’re in, that is seriously impressive. Before I…

Cocoa Brown Tanning wipes

As a beauty lover, it pains me to admit, that when it comes to developing tan, I am an absolute disaster. No matter how careful I am, I always make an absolute mess of it. It is either patchy, too dark, streaky and don’t even get me started on the hands! I know I have a tendency to over exaggerate in my life, but trust me, I don’t get on well with developing tan. This probably explains why I go through bottles and bottle of the Cocoa brown tanning gels!!! Early last summer, Marissa Carter announced, that due to popular demand, she was bringing out the much loved Cocoa brown tan…

Cocoa Brown Rose Gold and Golden Goddess

Is there really any stopping Marissa Carter? Hot on the heels of her hugely successful  Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess shimmery dry body oil release late last year, comes the Limited Edition Rose Gold Goddess . I mean the words limited edition and rose gold are enough to make any girls heart skip a beat. Both the Original Golden Goddess and the new limited edition Rose Gold Goddess are shimmering dry oils that offer both  a highlight and natural glow to our skin depending on how it is applied. The only difference between the original Golden Goddess and the new Rose Gold goddess being the colour and tone that they offer your…

Beauty products for pregnancy and beyond

Knowing what products you can and can’t use during pregnancy is a complete minefield. There are so many conflicting reports out there, that it is actually hard to find out what exactly you can and can’t use. I personally haven’t been OTT about watching what I used but as a rule of thumb, I went for as many paraben and sulphate free products as possible, while avoiding Salicylic acid, retinol, vitamin a, glycolic acid, hair removal products  and developing tans. While there is science behind avoiding the likes of the Salicylic acid, retinonals and vitamin a, the tanning products are up for debate as to whether you can use them or not…

Bridal Beauty Preparation

Over the past several weeks, quite a number of you have sent me messages asking could I detail what beauty preparation I did in the run up to the wedding. So many people find that the world of beauty throws so much at them in the run up to their big day, that they don’t know what treatments would actually benefit them the most. There is so many treatments out there, and to be fair while there are many wonderful treatments, there are many that are just looking to capitalise on the bridal market. Every woman wants to look her best at all times, but when it comes to your…

The Perfect summer tan

When it comes to tanning and keeping your skin in tip top shape in the sun, there really is nobody more qualified than, Kate from Pure Irish sugar. Kate is not only a blogger, but also one of the ladies behind the scenes and the Number 1 selling tan Cocoa Brown. I know Jate through the bogging world, and to say she is an absolute sweetheart would be an understatement. There is only one problem when meeting Kate and that is I get over come with serious hair envy. Her hair is amazing!!! I kid you not. To keep up with Kate’s antics and blog posts, you can check our…

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps

Up until recently Kiehl’s was one of those brands that I had heard nothing but good things about, but had never tried. Both my sister and brother rave about how fantastic everything Kiehl’s is, but for one reason or another I just hadn’t gotten around to giving anything a good test run. That was until the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps came into my life. Body lotion is one of those things that I am very lazy with. I usually have my shower in the morning, and as I have previously mentioned in other posts, I am all about trying to grab those precious extra few minutes in bed and body…

Babydoll cosmetics Tan Goddess Fake tan review

With the beauty market flooded with fake tan, it is hard to whittle down everything on the market to pick a tan that suits you. Not only do you need to decipher between the brands that are on offer, but also that type of tan you want. Do you want an instant tanner, gradual tanner or a developing tan. Once you have decided on that, you then need to work out, what will look good, wear well and won’t go on patchy. Decisions, decisions, decisions. I am quite a lazy tanner. I actually hate stripping down and lashing the normally cold tan onto my body. More often than not, I use…

Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff review

Cocoa Brown Tough stuff is a recent enough edition to the ever growing Cocoa Brown tan range, which was started by Marissa Carter, an absolute power house of a business woman. I am a massive fan of Marissa, not only is she a brilliant business woman, but how she treats customers and bloggers has to be seen to be believed. She is some woman.  Marissa is a massive inspiration and a great role model for women in business.  It is hard enough to start a business in the middle of a recession, but to make the success of it that Marissa has, has to be admired and lauded She is…
