Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip Oil Free Body Moisturiser

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

Its that time of year again and boy did it come around quickly!
I can't believe we are nearly into December and how close it is to *gulp* Christmas.
Along with some festive cheer the winter months also brings cold, damp and dreary weather…..with a bit of snow if we are lucky! *fingers crossed*
I love the winter months, I look forward to this time of year so much!
Not just because my birthday and Christmas are in December but because…..
quite frankly I love the cold!
My body on the other hand, despises it. I suffer terribly form colds and flu's, dry skin the works! I'm sure we can all relate :)
Due to this I always need to take extra care into looking after my skin.
A thick, creamy and most importantly hydrating moisturiser is a must have!
Today I am going to share with you my favourite budget buy moisturiser from the one and only…Cocoa Brown!

As you all know by now I am no stranger to Cocoa Brown products. Over the past year Cocoa Brown has taken the market by storm and is continuing to do so with the steady release of new beauty buys to the range!

and most recently 'Chocolate Whip' has joined the Cocoa Brown family!
If you haven't checked out the full range, just click on each of the names and it will take you to an in-depth review on each of the products :)

Before I even get in to talking about the product, lets just take a moment to appreciate the packaging. I'm a stickler for packaging but Marissa's range has always gotten a bit fat tick from me and that remains unchanged!
I love the colour combination, the pink on the white its so girly especially with the added floral design that runs around the tube. 
That is another thing I adore about this product is the fact that it comes in a tube, this makes for easy application and there is no mess!

When I squeezed the product out of the tube I couldn't believe my eyes…
it was brown!
I don't think I have ever come across a brown moisturiser before, it definitely lives up to its name 'Chocolate Whip'. Then the smell hit me next, oh wow.
If you have tried some of the other products from the Cocoa Brown range you will be familiar with the Tahitian Gardenia scent, its also infused with some Cocoa so you get a slight whiff of chocolaty goodness too!

Chocolate Whip is enriched with Vitamin E and Panthenol. The Vitamin E helps to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, age spots and also helps strengthen the skins barrier function. While the panthenol helps to protect against every day environmental damage. The added panthenol means it is suitable for acne prone skin, it will moisturise the skin without clogging pores!

This moisturiser is also oil free, most body lotions on the market contain oil which causes your tan to become patchy and fade unevenly. With Chocolate Whip this is not the case, when applied daily from the day of tanning application it helps to prolong the life of your tan making sure it fades evenly.

As the moisturiser is multipurpose it can be used in two other ways.
1. Before you apply your Cocoa Brown tan, apply chocolate whip to areas such as the hands, elbows and feet to prevent the tan from becoming too dark in those areas. Also apply it to any dry patches you may have to ensure a streak free flawless finish to your tan
2. If you don't fake tan…don't worry! Don't be put off by the colour, this moisturiser isn't tinted in the slightest! This moisturiser can be used on a daily basis to hydrate the skin leaving it silky smooth.

After I applied the moisturiser aside from the smell, the first thing I noticed was how quickly it absorbed into my skin. There was no oily residue left behind so time spent standing in the nip after my shower was kept to an absolute minimum! Thank god says I, its been ferociously cold these last few mornings!

While it absorbs into the skin quickly I've noticed this is a slight flaw too if I had to nitpick! As it dries quickly I find myself having to use a good bit more of the moisturiser to cover my entire body, however its not that big of a deal when you consider the price of a tube is only €7.99!

On the whole I'm once again extremely impressed with my Cocoa Brown package, 'Chocolate Whip' is definitely a must have moisturiser in my books!
And at that price….Bargain Hunter Byrne strikes again :)
