Cocoa Brown New Products - Kind Shampoo, Kind Conditioner, Self Tanning Wipes, Rose Gold Goddess, The Goddess Collection

Marissa Carter and Cocoa Brown have changed the face (and body) of false tanning in Ireland.   With the original One Hour Tan Marissa has created an effective and affordable product which is a beauty staple for most Irish women (and beyond).

Marissa (as you can see from her snapchat) is not one to sit on her laurels and decided to expand what is now becoming a Cocoa Brown Empire. 

Marissa gave us a glimpse of what was to come with the Cocoa Brown Travel Set* €8.00 which contains a travel size Kind Shampoo, Conditioner shower gel and a packet of Self Tanning Wipes. 

If your as old as I am (as old as the hills) the idea of Self Tanning Wipes give you the shivers, back in the day the only tanning products available were either very very expensive or tanning wipes which basically seemed like they were coffee stained sheets of misery.    I haven't tried the Cocoa Brown Wipes (I cant sorry, it will cause flashbacks) but Sinead from the Beautiful Truth has and thought they were lovely (high praise from the trusted Sinead).  

After the success of the Travel Set Cocoa Brown released full size (200ml) of both the Kind Shampoo* and Kind Conditioner* (€3.50).  As the name suggests the Kind range is good to both the hair and the scalp (and even gentle on hair extensions).  The formula is free from Parabens, Alcohol and Formaldehyde and has a very light fragrance (Cocoa Browns signature Tahitian Gardenia).

So is it any good?  I am lucky enough to have good hair, I have lots (and lots) of it, it takes well to a style and is strong.  Unfortunately after I had the baby some I my hair grew back different, the hair around my ears grew back frizzy and rough (weird I know).  Just when I have no time to style or treat my hair it starts acting the maggot.  Left to its own devices the sides stuck out like Krusty The Klown.  Kind Shampoo and Conditioner is a rich but light duo which I found miraculously helped with the frizz.  Kind leaves your hair so soft and manageable.  It is a rich shampoo and I found during the really warm days (remember those very humid days with absolutely no sun in September) I got greasy roots quicker. This was probably a combination of the heat and the conditioning nature of the shampoo,  if you have very oily hair the shampoo might not agree with you (but I have a solution for you below).  

I gave the smaller size Shampoo and Conditioner to my friend to try, she has finer hair than me and she got on really well with the duo.  Her hair looked bright, soft and conditioned.  Recently I have been using a different shampoo (mostly because himself has used up the end of the Kind Shampoo on his delicate scalp - he noticed the difference) and the Kind Conditioner and my hair feels lovely and soft and without frizz.   So if you have oily hair try using your regular shampoo and the Kind conditioner.   Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo and Conditioner are a great duo if you have frizzy hair and at €3.50 each are an excellent price.  I would love if Cocoa Brown released a deep conditioner or treatment.  Think of the possibilities.  
Here I am my hair has been washed by Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo and Conditioner and styled with Bumble & Bumble products.  My hair looks shiny and healthy and I dare you to spot some of the Krusty the Klown frizz.
ROSE GOLD - just mention Rose Gold anything and it sells out in a flash.  Who doesn't Love Rose Gold?   Especially when Rose Gold is particularly flattering to the Irish complexion.    Recently Cocoa Brown released a Limited Edition Rose Gold Goddess* and it sold out in a flash (I asked in Penneys in Dundrum and it sold out in an hour).  I love the original Golden Goddess which is so pretty on the skin (on holidays, during party season or just on a Tuesday to brighten your world).  The oil absorbs easily into the skin leaving you with a radiant pretty glow.  I was away in March and cause I have a baby I saw absolutely no sun but Golden Goddess on my legs gives such a radiant glow I looked like a Golden Goddess.  You can use the Goddess oils on the face but I love to use them on the body, the fact that they are so affordable means you wont feel guilty for smothering your body with it.  
Cocoa Brown couldn't really leave a nation crying out in need for more of the limited edition wonder which was Rose Gold Goddess so this Christmas (from the 8th November) Cocoa Brown are releasing the Goddess Collection which contains the original Golden, Rose Gold and a new Ice Goddess all for an amazing €17.99.
So whats next for Cocoa Brown?  Who knows with the wonderful Marissa but we know she has plenty more tricks up her sleeve.
