Tans for WOC | Karamel & Brown Review

Tuesday, September 18, 2012


This week the group is split into two, one half doing GOSH & the other half doing Karamel & Brown
Karamel and Brown was created by Cheryl Effiom four years ago,
“Being of Afro-Caribbean decent, I had always longed for a warm glow to my skin, that I could keep all year round, rather just post-holiday. I searched desperately for a product that would give me this, but I failed time after time to find anything that worked for my complexion. As a result, I set out to develop a product that complemented not only my own brown skin tone, but a product that worked for all females, of all skin tones.”
K&B products have followed strict national & international guidelines to produce the products to the highest quality, the products also include organic ingredients such as Aloe Vera - sourced in the UK.

I have the Karamel & Brown Express Glow* - Instant Bronze. Once squeezed out the bottle onto the mitt supplied by K&B it reminds me of Candian Healing Oil - anyone seen / used that? Just very dark in colour and it flows like a liquid so be careful as I did drop some on my rug as I went to apply it.
It has an coconut scent in and out the bottle (which isn't listed within the ingredients) but once applied to the skin it has that typical 'tan' smell.
I took this picture about 5 minutes after I had applied the tan even thought it says a natural looking glow in 60mins. There is a significant change in colour. It's a nice brown that's not too overbearing. In person it looks quite natural too which I like. The smell does linger a bit on the arm, thank God I don't find it too strong, it does fade gradually!

With the flash it's slightly obvious but not too much. So there's not much to worry about if your being photographed with flash as it still looks close to the skins natural colour.
