Cocoa Brown's in town!

Cocoa Brown's in town!

Ireland’s best-selling 1 hour self-tanning mousse has just hit UK shores – and it’s reported to already be giving the top-end premium brands a run for their money.

I haven’t had a chance to try Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan yet, but there’s been a hell of a lot of PR hype around it and it has already sold out once online (but don’t worry it’s been restocked) so I can’t wait and will report on my findings if I get on well with it.


I was invited to the press launch recently to meet the entrepreneur behind the brand, Marissa Carter, who is a household name in Ireland and regarded as one of the most respected beauty experts in the country.

Marissa has a scientific background which makes the product even more interesting. The formula, which she has carefully monitored, contains superior ingredients normally only found in much more expensive brands, along with high-tech accelerating agents

The scent is pleasantly floral, and the results are said to last around five days with no orange skin in sight.

Taking all this into account, it’s incredible that the RRP is just £7.99. Snap up a bottle now as this is definitely hot property – in beauty terms, that is.

The Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter 1 Hour Tan is available nationwide in selected Primark stores (London Oxford St, Lakeside Essex, Bristol, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Manchester) and online at
