DIY Cocoa Powder Bronzer or Self tanner

Thanks to the Morning Blend for inviting me on the show today to talk a little more about some beach beauty secrets! One DIY tip we explored was using Cocoa powder as a bronzer. This little trick has been getting a lot of hype lately and it's super easy to do, but does it really work?

Here is a post that has pretty much gone viral on Pinterest showing a before and after photo which appears pretty promising. Just mix 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder with your favorite lotion and apply evenly for these results:

However, this photo seems to be the exception rather than the rule of what real life results are likely to be.

Case in point below appears to be more of a pudding like-mess. 

The cocoa powder/lotion bronzer will work - but it will not last long if you sweat and it will transfer easily on your clothes or anything that you happen to have skin contact with. Fun but not very practical! Would love to hear what sort of results some of you have experienced.
