Chocolate is cheaper than therapy, and you don’t need an appointment.
Last week, Kylie Jenner declared herself a fan of Irish beauty brand Cocoa Brown and launched the internet into tanning hysteria. So, we already know that the tan is one of the best (and my personal favourite) on the market but, what about Cocoa Brown’s ‘Chocolate Whip Oil-Free Body Moisturiser’? Some moisturising products react badly with false tan by breaking down the particles, causing it to fade unevenly from the skin. However, Marissa Carter claims her formula will “extend the life of your tan and ensure an even fade”.
First and foremost – the scent. Dear lord, I’ve died and gone to beauty heaven. This moisturiser smells exactly like sweet chocolate which is wonderfully luscious, unless you’re starving of course. This formula will make you smell good enough to eat so be cautious about slathering it on if you’re considering a visit to Coppers!
The consistency of the formula is light-weight, smooth and it is slightly beige in colour. Due to the fact that it’s an ‘oil-free’ product, it absorbs quickly so there’s no sticky residue. ‘Chocolate Whip’ is not only hydrating but also nourishing for the skin because it contains ingredients such as Vitamin E and panthenol which are known to strengthen skin.
I’ve been using ‘Chocolate Whip’ as my daily moisturiser for approximately two weeks and have noticed a visible difference in my skin which is now softer and glowing. I also like to use the formula before and after applying false tan because it helps extend the life of the colour and allows the particles to break-down and fade evenly. I will definitely be re-purchasing.
Cocoa Brown By Marissa Carter Chocolate Whip Oil-Free Body Moisturiser (€4.99 for 200ml) is available in Penneys, Primark, Boots Ireland, Tesco Ireland, Heatons, Superdrug, pharmacies nationwide and online via Cloud10Beauty.com & FeelUnique.com.
Have you tried ‘Chocolate Whip’? If so, I’d love to hear your feedback!
