The miracle workers at Cocoa Brown have launched Marissa Carter's ‘Man Mitt.’

The Velvet Tanning Thumb Mitt is also perfect for the man in your life.

But let's get real, you know it's all about us, after all we are queens.

Larger in size, gone are the days of his hand getting crushed into a smaller glove.

No longer has he the excuse to moan about rubbing that magic brown tan into those hard to reach places.

This gorgeous black tan mitt is made with luxury velvet to give him the perfect application – whether he is applying it to your body or his own.

Wave bye-bye to oompa-loompa orange hands as the inner waterproof foam-lining keeps them protected from any staining. 

The Mitt will give you both a flawless finish with even, streak-free results. 

They really do think of everything, as it features a thumb for better grip and comfort when applying the tan.

For envious results, wear the mitt, apply a coin-sized amount of tan to its surface and buff onto clean dry skin.

Don't forget to hand wash the mitt between tanning sessions – hygiene people!

You can thank us and Cocoa Brown when you finally don't have to stretch to reach those annoying spots.

And, your boyfriend can too when he's roped in to your tanning rituals and he develops his own!

Happy tanning.




As much as we love having a golden tan when we're travelling, bringing our tanning supplies along can be tricky.

The products are too big for our carry-on bag, or we're worried they'll accidentally spill all over the clothes in our checked luggage.

Thankfully though, as many people are beginning to jet off on summer holidays (or sitting at home, hoping the sun will stay out), Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter decided to swoop in and save the day.

No longer will people be asking if you're Casper when they look at photos from your trip to Ibiza, all thanks to Cocoa 2 Go Travel Size 1 Hour Tan Mousse.

It does exactly what it says on the tin: gives you a beautiful bronzed look in just ONE hour – with a fresh holiday scent to boot.

At 95ml, you can just toss it into your carry-on, no worries. Stay gold, ponyboy.

CEO and founder of Cocoa Brown Marissa Carter says of the new product, ''Cocoa 2 Go Travel Size 1 Hour Tan Mousse is 95ml and will slide into your carry-on luggage so staying wonderfully bronzed has never been easier.  

"As with all Cocoa Brown products, Cocoa 2 Go simply glides on with an instant colour and develops into a rich Cocoa Brown colour in just one hour for a false tan that lasts on the skin for up to five to seven days.''

The Cocoa 2 Go Travel Size 1 Hour Tan Mousse is available in Original Medium, Dark and Extra Dark from €5.95 at stockists nationwide.

Getting dolled up for a night out is half the fun, but when you're getting ready on your own and have to tan your back, it becomes a struggle. Ugh.

For years we have tried different hacks, including putting a tanning mit on a clothes hanger and trying to reach around and even getting our partners to put it on (which never turns out too well).

But now, Cocoa Brown tan has created a new tanning mit which will come in fairly handy on your next night out and it could be yours.

If you think this sounds oh-so-great, then you need to be in it to win it. Just head over to our Facebook or Instagram page to enter. Good luck, ladies! 


It was praised by Kylie Jenner last year, and now it seems that another Kardashian sister is on to the wonders of Cocoa Brown tan.

The brand, which is owned by Irish beauty expert Marissa Carter, has been praised by the reality star's make-up artist, Joyce Bonelli in the past, and it has become apparent that Joyce introduced the tan to the reality family.

Marissa took to Instagram to share a picture of Khloe Kardashian using Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil. 

She captioned the snap, "Koko loves Cocoa." Cute.

The beauty brand attracted A LOT of attention when the youngest Kardashian/Jenner, Kylie, shared a photo on social media with the Cocoa Brown bottle in the background.

But, they aren't the only American stars using it, 90210's Jessica Lowndes is also a huge fan, showing off the products while on holiday. 


In a week that saw her announce the arrival of Cocoa Brown into Australia, cosmetics entrepreneur Marissa Carter has exclusively shared yet more exciting news with SHEmazing!

“We’re landing in 400 stores in Sweden,” she reveals. “Cocoa Brown tan from next week will be hitting Coop, which is one of the largest retails there.”

Incredibly, the announcement represents the fourth international expansion for Cocoa Brown: the Irish brand is already available in the US and UK, as well as Australia. Celebrity fans include Rosanna Davison, Millie Mackintosh, and Vogue Williams.

Still, Marissa explains that she made the Swedish distributor work hard before signing a deal with him.

“A young Swedish guy set up his distribution company two years ago and he’s been fighting and fighting with me for Cocoa Brown exclusivity for ages.

“I kept fobbing him off, but he kept at it. Eventually I told him bluntly: ‘Look, I only do business with people I trust, so before we sign anything I’ll have to meet you. But I’m also nine months pregnant, so if you want to make this happen, you’re going to have to come to me. And I’ll probably only have an hour to spare as my schedule is pretty hectic right now.’

“I’m sure he thought I was a right so-and-so, but he jumped on a plane to Dublin regardless. We met for an hour at the Hilton hotel by the Grand Canal and by the end he had persuaded me that this was a good deal to make.”

The 31-year-old, who lives with her husband, toddler son, newborn baby daughter, and pet dog in south county Dublin, also explains that the response to Cocoa Brown’s launch in Australia earlier this week has been incredible. “There are so many expats over there, so there’s been a warm welcome, certainly.

“One young woman sent me a Tweet telling me that she’s delighted – last time she was at home in Ireland she had to drag ten bottles of Cocoa Brown back to Australia with her!”

She’s hoping to launch there properly in September, and says she’ll make a holiday out of the trip too. “My husband, Ronan, has family in Australia, and I have two uncles and cousins there, so we’ll combine work with a little break.”

In the meantime, Ms Carter, who only gave birth to her daughter Isabelle last month, says she fully intends on stepping away from the business for a few months.

“Everyone thinks I’m back at the desk but I’m not – I’m definitely taking maternity leave. 

"I’ve worked really, really hard over the last two years so I won’t be rushing back.”

Until then, Marissa’s looking forward to embracing her heels again. “It’s been an age since I’ve worn heels – but just today I put on a pair again. I’m definitely back in that sense!”



Dublin native Vogue Williams has a new role that has us all feeling a slightly jealous. The reality star-turned DJ-turned model is now the proud ambassador of Cocoa Brown Tan and we’re pretty sure she will never have to buy fake tan ever again!

Brian McFadden’s wife announced the news on Twitter, saying: “So excited to be an official brand ambassador for my favourite fan tan @CocoaBrownTan #BrownNotOrange.”

However, while we may be slightly jealous of her new role, we are certainly not envious of how she keeps her amazing figure!

The 28-year-old recently went for a body wrap sessions, whereby clingfilm is wapped around your body and a blanket put over you so you basically sweat off your fat. Talking about the session, Vogue said: “I sat on my ass for almost an hour and lost weight, delighted with life.”

And it seems it was certainly worth it, as she declared: “When it was finished, my skin was so smooth but the most amazing thing was that I’d actually lost inches, I couldn’t believe it,” she said. “I could wear these wraps everywhere – they suck everything in!”
