I'm sure everyone knows by now that I'm a big Cocoa Brown fan. It's changed how I feel about self-tanners; for years I avoided them completely because they were just too much hassle but with the arrival of One Hour Tan, I grew to love being all bronzed again. My legs however are always a bit of a struggle. They just don't seem to take the tan the same way the rest of my body does and I've no idea why! Am I alone in this or does anyone else have the same trouble? First world problem or wha'?
Anyway, now Cocoa Brown have Lovely Legs; a "medium bronze tanning make up for flawless pins". It comes in a spray can that you give a quick shake to, spray onto a tanning mitt and apply to your legs, blending well.
Like all CB products, this applied like a dream, I had no streaks and had both my legs done in about ten minutes, maybe less.
It has the same "Tahitian Gardenia" scent that all CB products have, which is always very nice and in appearance is a bit like the Sally Hansen Spray On Legs, which I actually don't use so I can't compare the two.
I can say that I much preferred this to regular tan for my legs, which I apply at night time, meaning I generally don't notice til the following morning that it's all patchy (regardless of exfoliation and moisturising the day before) and by then it's too late. Lovely legs is instant and is a wash off tan so if you were to make a mistake, it's easily fixed. It's basically fake tanning for dummies, if someone were to write such a book.
And here's the results:
Love it! I actually think it looks really natural, it gave my skin a nice glow and a healthy tan which is going to be perfect for Summer.
The only problem I can foresee is getting stuck in a rain shower or some randomer spilling a pint down your legs of an evening. But that's true of all wash off tans and if you're living in Ireland I guess you just have to take that chance!
You can pick yourself up a can of Lovely Legs from Penneys and selected pharmacies nationwide now for €7.99.
