After seeing Cocoa Brown recommended on here I thought I would try it. Yes it goes on smoothly, it does not streak but mainly because it makes no difference to my skin colour at all, even when left overnight.
Should I try the darker one? Should I try a different brand?
You could try exfoliating more before putting it on?
Sorry, can't really help, but do you mind posting about whether it smells or not? It claims not to but frankly I don't believe a word of it as it has DHA in the ingredients, and I have been sucked in too many times before by supposedly 'non-smelling' fake tan <sad face>
I was out on Friday night and my colleague had an amazing tan! She says she uses StTropez every time. I asked her if it smells and she says it has very little smell. She lifted her arm and all i could really smell was a mild sweet scent! I am going to buy it when i can. The one that is express gets great right ups and you can basically pop it on after a shower and leave it on for at least an hour but the longer you leave it, the deeper the tan. Her tan looked amazing.
i tried cocoa brown dark (already had a fading natural tan). i looked a bit orange and streaky in places even though i'd exfoliated, moisturised etc as directed. given up on it now and think i'll just use the wash off stuff if i feel the need for a bit of extra colour. (i did notice a smell from the cocoa brown but not as pungent as others i've tried).
I have rinsed off my face and my boobs ( am breastfeeding!) and it appears to have kept the colour. Will rinse my whole body in the morning, my research suggests that lots of people are leaving it on overnight.
I use st tropez everyday - I love the colour - I m pale and use the light one. I ve used it for years as it works best I ve found any time I try others the colour s not quite right. But if does smell, and strongly After seeing the write up s on cocoa brown I ve bought it and am going to try it. Wish me luck ......
