It's actually staying on. I recommend letting it sit for 3 hours before going swimming. You should be fine as long as you don't use any harsh exfoliating scrubs where you applied the lotion/cocoa mix.

Interesting idea!

It seems like it would wash off though, after the first trip into the pool or shower. What has your experience been?
