The quest for the perfect tan often leads us to explore new and innovative products. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out Nuda's Hot Chocolate spray tan solution, promising to be their darkest shade yet. Excitement filled the air as I anticipated a rich, deep tan. However, my experience unfolded with unexpected twists. Let's dive into the candid review of Nuda's Hot Chocolate.


The solution used: Nuda Hot Chocolate 

As stated on the website: "Hot Chocolate Solution is a regular 14% DHA solution that requires 8-12 hours to develop, intended for people with dark skin tones who tan very easily and quickly in the sun. This solution will allow your clients to obtain a superb intense and dark complexion with chocolate tones. The solution is enriched with vitamins A, B, C, D and E, extract of aloe, elderflower, white tea, green tea, coconut oil, jojoba and seeds of meadowfoam. Hot Chocolate is quick-drying, non-sticky and odorless, this solution leaves a fresh cucumber scent." 


Ingredient List: Aqua (water), dihydroxyacetone, glycerin (plant derived), alcohol denatured, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, aloe barbadensis gel, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, camellia sinensis leaf extract (white tea extract), camellia oleifera leaf extract (green tea extract), sambucus nigra (elder) flower extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), cholecalciferol (vitamin d3), retinyl palmitate (vitamin a), ascorbic acid (vitamin c), pyridoxine hci (vitamin b6), erythrulose, caffeine, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, parfum (fragrance), red 33, red 40, green 5, yellow 5.


The Promise of Darkness: Nuda's Hot Chocolate is hailed as the darkest shade in their range, creating high expectations for a deep and luxurious tan. The anticipation was palpable as I geared up for the application.


Application Experience: In my view, Nuda boasts the most delightful fragrance among spray tan solutions available in the market. The scent resembled that of fresh rose water, creating a pleasant experience during application. The solution smoothly glided onto my body, and unlike some alternatives, it wasn't excessively "fumey."

I would like to note: It did make my skin look "burnt." I would advise clients with cooler undertones that this may happen but the redness will wash off in the shower. 



The Tan: Contrary to the promised darkness, the solution appeared surprisingly light upon application. What was expected to be a deep, chocolatey hue turned out to be more of a medium tan on my skin. This unexpected outcome left me a bit perplexed, as I was hoping for a bolder, more intense color.



Fading Quicker Than Expected: The speed at which the tan began to fade was another aspect that caught my attention. Despite the initial promise of a long-lasting tan, Hot Chocolate seemed to lose its intensity relatively quickly. This rapid fade was unexpected and left me wishing for a more enduring tan. Within 2 days the tan was completely washed off my face. 


Drying Effect: One noticeable drawback of the Hot Chocolate spray tan was its drying effect. Post-application, my skin felt considerably drier than usual. This is an important factor to consider, especially for individuals with naturally dry or sensitive skin.


Conclusion: In conclusion, my experience with Nuda's Hot Chocolate spray tan solution was a mixed bag. While the promise of the darkest shade intrigued me, the actual result fell short of expectations. The light color, drying effect, and quicker fade were aspects that dampened the overall experience.

It's important to note that individual experiences may vary, and what doesn't work for one may work for another. This review reflects my personal encounter with Nuda's Hot Chocolate, and I encourage everyone to explore various products to find the one that best suits their preferences and skin type.

In the ever-evolving world of spray tans, some may find Nuda's Hot Chocolate to be the perfect fit, while others might opt for a different shade in their collection. The journey to finding the ideal spray tan is an adventure, and sometimes, it's about the exploration as much as the end result. Happy tanning!
