Did I go a little crazy with the title?
I was just being too excited about reviewing these two products because I found out about them not long ago and I can't end raving about them with my girlfriends. One of my pals has a newborn baby and my oh my, kids have the softest skin, it's incredible! I thought I would never experience that level of smoothness now that I'm old and in my twenties (the struggle is real) but I came pretty close to it since using Cocoa Brown.
You may know the brand since it's definitely been quite popular on the market but for a totally different reason: their tanning products. I know quite a few people who use their one hour tan (which I plan on testing out this summer). Since it's cold in UK and I'm always wrapped in a million layers I just wasn't really going to test out anything that remotely reminds me of summer and how much I miss the beach and the sun. Instead, I was looking for something to get rid of all the nasty stuff when I come back from the gym and then a lovely moisturiser to make me feel beautiful and soft.
Tough Stuff is a kick-ass body scrub that gets rid of all the impurities making it a gorgeous exfoliating body treatment. I called it unicorn poop because it looks fabulous and it's pink. I found it especially amazing on elbows, ankles and feet which can be tricky areas. Obviously you can use it on dry skin to get a hardcore exfoliation or on wet skin if you want a more gentle approach. Me? Go hard or go home!
After scrubbing away dirt and impurities I find essential some moisturising and that's when I get Chocolate Whip. This oil free product is the secret weapon to having incredibly good looking and hydrated elbows (or any other part of the body really). I mention elbows because mine tend to look easily rough since they're always dry. I also love it because it sinks in your skin and it doesn't leave that annoying greasy finish that makes you angry when you kinda just want to get in your pjs and watch Gossip Girl without feeling sticky.
I can't say I'm surprised. I had pretty high expectations on these products since they're designed for women who like to tan and we all know how much effort that requires, not just during the process but also before and after! I obviously can't give you a review from a tanning perspective because as mentioned before I am not self tanning HOWEVER from a dry skin body kinda gal I can say this brand knows what they're doing and they're good at it. Marissa Carter has worked real hard to get top quality gems produced so it's a win for me!
Have you ever tried any of the Cocoa Brown products before?
