It is no surprise that I love a great sunless tan. I have that type of skin that gets whiter than a sheet of paper in the winter months. I think even my two year old with her perfect milky-white baby skin has more color than I do sometimes. So that’s why I need a little help during the bitter cold New Jersey winter months. Yes, I guess it may seem a little shallow, but to me, what’s wrong with wanting a little color to make my face look alive, and not like I haven’t had a good night sleep in years…
I’m definitely not as addicted as I used to be… I frequented tanning salons, spray booths, and even stripped down to let someone airbrush my entire body. Now, I’m a mommy with absolutely no time for that. I’m lucky if I get my hair and nails done twice a year at this point – I know, so sad – But at least I don’t have to give up my tan!
After all the tanning I’d done over the years, when I became pregnant about 5 years ago, I still wanted to keep a natural glow, but I really buckled down on the harsh chemicals I was willing to put on my skin. One night I raided my beauty cabinet and tossed so many bottles of self tanners and tanning towels and searched the internet for something that was safe but still worked. I tried a few products, but I was never really impressed…
Until I found Chocolate Sun!
I came across their website and this appeared on the main page: “Chocolate Sun is the pioneer and creator of the very first all natural, organic, sunless tanning solution and retail collection. Chocolate Sun products are handcrafted entirely of organically grown and wild crafted botanicals and herbs, pure essential oils, and all natural preservatives.” So I decided to give it a try – and then I was hooked!

This self tanning lotion really is the best! Not only does it work and work well, but it is all-natural with only organic ingredients. No chemicals whatsoever. Plus it smells so amazing that every time I open the bottle, I just want to keep smelling it. My husband always notices when I have it on because he loves the scent as well. It smells like a wonderful dessert! The color is natural. No weird orange fake looking color. They do offer three different shades to choose from. I first started out using the lightest shade, but then moved up to the medium shade named Coca Glow. It really does give a streak-free sun-kissed look! I love it and use it almost everyday!
To apply: I usually do so at night so that it has time to work overnight and voila I wake up sun-kissed like I spent the day at the beach!
- First, I shower and use the Chocolate Sun Chocolate Truffle Body Scrub (another fave of mine!).
- Next I dry off and apply the tanner instead of my nightly face cream.
- If I am applying to my entire body, I usually use a sponge application mitt so that my hands don’t get discolored, but if I am only applying to my face and arms I simply use my hands to apply and wash them right after.
- I make sure to rub it in pretty well to face, décolletage and arms to prevent any streaking.
- The next morning my skin looks fresh and sun-kissed with wonderful natural-looking color! It’s that easy!
