There is a far better all natural and organic way to get a gorgeous tan that is far cheaper than expensive tanning products. Try a homemade self-tanning lotion - no need for sun!

Wonder if this really works...sounds way too easy to have such great #DIY Homemade Cocoa Powder Tan ( #beauty ) >>

    Horrible.. a light layer you can't even tell, so if you go to add more it gets all chunky and blotchy and impossible to rub in evenly no matter what you do. Don't waste your time.

  • Erin

    Never again

  • Mackenzie Frenze

    What doesnt work about it ..?

  • Esmeralda

    We'll thanks for telling us before trying it

  • Teri Cue

    oh yea I discovered that, last nt. the smell was awful, it itched like crazy (on me) and the dog was going crazy. then I got into the shower, itall rinsed off and the lotion clumped in the drain. I guess I thought it would work like a stain, but NO DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE COCOA AND THE AMT OF LOTION YOU WILL THROW AWAY. this was posted a few times I guess and I missed the one that said didn't work. or I would not have tried it.

Homemade self tanning lotion: without the chemicals and a fraction of the cost. Simply amazing, the cocoa version is what I tried and I will be using it every night & morning to keep that tanned look, yay for semi- homemade products!

adjust the amount of coco powder according to how tan u wish to be! then mix with ur daily lotion and voila u just made ur own self tanner and it lasted 3 days with me then it began to fade...

How to Make Your Own Homemade Tanning Lotion, 1/2 cup unscented white lotion and 1/3 cup of pure cocoa powder and mix together until no clumps are visible. Apply moisturizing lotion before applying tanning lotion for better results. It will appear much darker in the bowl then on your skin. As you apply to skin it shows automatically how dark it will be. Keep lotion in another empty lotion bottle.

A before and after home made no-streak tanning cream that lasts for 3 days! 1. Get some cocoa powder 2 tbsp. depending on how tan you want to be. (I used 2) 2. Any moisturizer you have (some suggested using Extra Virgin Olive Oil) 3. An empty bottle. 4. Cotton balls, or anything that can help you apply the cream. 5. Mix it all together you should end up with a brown mix. Don't worry, it won't be that dark on your skin. Good for when you need a tan quick!!!

DIY mineral veil HE RECIPE: In an old powder container, shake together one tablespoon cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon baby powder. You can add a sprinkle of powder foundation or cocoa powder for color, but this is optional. Congratulations, you just saved yourself $20.

  • Kristen Jones

    I dont have this problem with my actual mineral veil, but cornstarch will most definitely clog pores. So if you decide to take this route, make sure to remove it at night.

At-home self-tanner! Boil 2 cups of water, add 4 black tea bags. Leave in for 10-15 minutes, or until tea is dark and cool enough to touch. Shower to remove any dirt/oil and dry skin completely. Apply generously with a sponge/spray bottle and let skin air dry. Apply again for a deeper shade. The "tan" should last 3-4 days. For bonus color, mix pure cocoa powder into body lotion until you reach desired color and apply for an all-over bronzing boost.

Cocoa DIY Natural Sunless Tanning Recipes! 1. Cocoa Powder: Mix ¼ cup of cocoa powder with your favorite lotion. Spread an even layer of the concoction on your skin. Rinse off after 15 minutes.

    Eh. Not really. But it could be like a henna...

  • harlie anna

    Does this really work?

  • Cayla M

    I did this. I well mixed cocoa powder into some vanilla scented lotion. It ended up smelling like chocolate pudding. But it applied very streaky.

  • Kendall Speaks

    I tried this a few months ago and it worked but I didnt rinse off. It does soak in also make sure you have another bottle to put the "concoction" in

Chocolate Homemade self tanner: Chocolate or cocoa powder is a natural self-tanner, mix together 1 cup of body lotion (white) and 1/4 cup of cocoa powder or chocolate. Store the mixture in a cool place and use it in place of body lotion when you want to fake a tan. Store the mixture for up to two weeks. After applying, let this lotion dry for at least 1 hour

DIY fake tan. You can wash your skin with a strong brewed black tea, coffee, or cocoa. This will give your skin a light tan, and it will also make it more elastic. Another good idea is to create ice cubes from coffee or strong tea, and wipe your face with one each morning. This will give your skin a light golden tone without tanning.
