Getting Tan without any Sun

Though we only get 3 months of Hot, Humid Beach-Weather Summer temperatures here in NYC, I don't go running outside to get my tan. I do get enough from being outside with my dogs but I am not the kind to sit under the sun, and soak up all those UV rays. I actually slather on sunscreen every time before I go out. Skin cancer is not in my future plans, no thank you!
On days I do want to give my skin some color like at special events, date nights and girls night out, I have learned to embrace the greatness of self tanners. 

Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter & 
Selfie Tan'n Go Instant Face Bronzer
have been my go-to self tanners lately.

About Cocoa Brown

Cocoa Brown is one of the UK & Ireland’s most popular tanning and skincare brands. Cocoa Brown has had unprecedented success in its first two years and it has become a cult beauty buy for women across the world. Beauty bloggers have really taken the brand to heart and it has created an online frenzy since it launched, with over 1,000 amazing beauty blogger reviews.

Cocoa Brown has continued to grow in retailers throughout both the UK and Ireland such as Tesco, Penneys, Boots and Superdrug and the brand now sells 3 bottles of their 1 HOUR TAN every minute across Ireland and the UK.  Cocoa Brown has really lived up to the slogan ‘The Most Talked About Tan in Town’ !
The pretty-in-pink best selling tanning range has been scooped up by Ricky’s NYC - an edgy, ultra-hip chain of beauty super stores. With over 30 stores between New York and Miami, Ricky’s NYC plays host to a diverse, cult like following of clientele and has done for over twenty five years. 

"The luxurious mousse formulation glides over skin, leaving the signature Cocoa Brown Tahitian Gardenia fragrance without the old-school fake tan pong"
It's lightweight, fast drying, streak free and does not have that sticky feel to it. 

I use this with the Self Tan Applicator Mitt and it goes on smoothly without leaving any streaks on the skin! It sure is fast drying and it does give me a nice color! Not orange or too dark or too muddy color but a nice natural looking tan!

About SELFIE Self-Tanning Products 

Self-tanning just received a lot more options with SELFIE Tan’n Go sunless products. Whether you want an instant, gradual, or wash off tan SELFIE’s tanning options give you a customized approach to self-tanning. SELFIE’s products use a patent pending fragrance technology that leaves the skin smelling fresh and clean, not like the classic self-tan scent. “SELFIE achieves the perfect just off the beach golden glow,” claims Stacy Kaufman, President of SELFIE. Ingredients such as vitamins A and E, green tea and kola extract keeps skin hydrated while maintaining a sun kissed tan.
Instantly add a healthy glow to your face with this easy to use gel facial bronzer. Not only does it give your face a glow, but also with firming and toning properties, this facial bronzer helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Soap and water easily washes off this facial bronzer.

I apply this on like I would a powder bronzer, just around my temples, to slightly contour my cheeks and below the chin. The little beads when blended into the skin bursts into the bronze color to darken your skin. It sinks in to the skin right away and does not feel sticky. I have no problem applying touch-up powder. It do washes off at the end of the day with a facial wash and makeup remover with no problem.

Besides using up all my powder bronzer to give my legs and arms some color, I use these two products on days I have time to pamper myself to get a nice tan!
