Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff

Hi ladies,
I got an early birthday present last week and it really couldn't have come at a better time. The present was Cocoa Browns new Tough Stuff and I was dying to give it a try. The previous week I was at my cousins wedding and on the Wednesday I got my spray tan done down in Carter Beauty (it of course came out fantastic). The one thing I hate about getting a spray done is when it all starts coming off, I always think my skin looks scaly or something. I stupidly didn't moisturise to help it come off more naturally so I was left with chunks of tan all over my body. My original plan was to just put tan over it for the Saturday night and hope for the best... But I was so thankful Tough Stuff arrived before I even started. 
So the product itself comes in a little sachet, that's of course pink. You can apply this mix either wet or dry (applying dry will give a deeper scrub). I opened the package and was pleasantly surprised that Cocoa Brown kept to their pink theme and the scrub itself was pink. It also smelt fantastic. Although the sachets look quite small I got a full body scrub out of it and had some left over. Now I actually hate scrubs because I always find they hurt too much and make my skin really dry but this was quite easy to rub in (my hands got a little sore the more I scrubbed, but I needed a good  scrub)! 
You know when you go to the beach and you arrive home with sand EVERYWHERE, and you jump into a shower to wash it off...that's what this feels like, which is something I actually love (it reminds me of holidays). Also a huge bonus about Tough Stuff was that it didn't make my shower really slippery like other scrubs do (whenever I use Ted Bakers body scrub I end up slipping when I'm getting out of the shower!). 
Before and After of my arm
Overall the product worked really well and made my skin so smooth, so much so that I actually told himself to feel how soft I was. It smells fantastic, looks super cute and is easy to use (absolutely no mess was made!). And best yet.... Cocoa Brown have kept to their low prices, Tough Stuff retails at €2.99. The one thing I would love though would be if this product was available in a tub because the scrub that was left in the sachet was thrown out because I don't like leaving products open for too long. Other than that I really couldn't fault the product. 
My legs are still swollen from bites and my cream didn't react well with the tan,
but tough stuff removed the majority of the blotchy tan.
Have any of you tried Tough Stuff yet? What did you think of the results?
