Cocoa Brown – Lovely Legs Spray & Tough Stuff

Cocoa Brown – Lovely Legs Spray & Tough Stuff

I was recently sent these Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter tanning goodies to try out – the package included Lovely Legs Spray*, a sachet of Tough Stuff* scrub and a Self Tan Applicator Mitt*. Lovely Legs Spray is an instant wash-off tan, and I have to admit I’ve always been nervous about using wash-off tan products – I always have nightmares about getting stuck in a rain shower and ending up with tan streaked legs! However, this product is labelled as water-resistant so I was interested to see how well it held up. Lovely Legs Spray – as I’ve already mentioned Lovely Legs Spray is a spray-on instant wash-off tan ‘make-up’. It is marketed as being perfect for legs but I guess it could be used on any area of your body – I have also been using it on my arms – but just be careful to avoid any area that could be rubbed by clothing as it could come off.

Yves Rocher – Cocoa & Pistachio Nut Hand Cream

I received this Cocoa & Pistachio Nut Hand Cream from Yves Rocher in my November Glossybox and tried it out straight away. It’s part of Yves Rocher’s ‘Collection Cacao’ range, which is made up of a variety of body and skincare products that all pair cocoa with another ingredient, for example Cocoa & Raspberry Sparkling Shower Gel.

It’s pretty much a budget product, but it doesn’t feel like it when you are massaging it into your hands. It leaves behind a lovely warm scent, if you like the fragrances of cocoa, vanilla or shea butter then I think you would love this. Being a jewellery designer my hands get a pretty tough time so I go through quite a lot of hand cream, and I have already been using this Yves Rocher product for a few days as it feels so nourishing. I think the packaging looks quite nice on this...

Greenscape – Organic Cocoa Butter Foaming Hand Wash

Greenscape – Organic Cocoa Butter Foaming Hand Wash

In my recent quest to replace all of my everyday skincare and bodycare products with ones containing natural or organic ingredients I came across the Greenscape Organic Skin Care range. Greenscape is a range of organic skincare – premium, ethically produced natural organic skin and body care products made with love and the greatest of care – founded in 1999 in the UK. All of Greenscape’s products exclude parabens, mineral oils, synthetic colourings and aggressive skin cleansing agents. Greenscape offer product ranges based around 4 main ingredients – shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and honey – with 5 products in each range. I needed a new hand wash for the bathroom, and I chose the Organic Cocoa Butter one as I love the scent of creamy cocoa butter and it was also the most neutral colour for my bathroom. I wanted a product that looked good in the bathroom and this doesn’t disappoint, the bottle looks classy and I think it almost rivals Molton Brown in the looks...
