BRAZILIAN BUM BUM CREAM ✩✩✩✩✩
YES! You read that correctly, Bum Bum Cream…
“But who would call their product that?” I hear you ask yourself? Well it’s actually pronounced ‘Boom-Boom’ in Brazil, referring to ‘la derrière!’ and as we all know, Brazil is home to hot weather and tanned bods in bikini’s on beautiful beaches… THIS is the inspiration for the brand, Sol De Janeiro!
Sol De Janeiro claim their body cream is ‘absolutely addictive’ and they are not wrong! O-M-G… I have never desired the complete collection of anything like I did with this!
Last month in my Bless Box I received a small sample of the Bum Bum Cream and I literally… lost… my… s**t!!! (please excuse the expression, I’ve never swore in a post before so I’m sure you’ll forgive me - it’s the only way for me to get across the pure excitement I felt when I first tried this cream).
If, like me, you adore delicious fragrances that scream ‘holiday’ and ‘beach’ and ‘Sun’ then you are about to lose your s**t too! It is like slathering yourself in a salted caramel buttercream with a vanilla drizzle and a pistachio topping! Uh-huh…
And as if that wasn’t enough, it contains a blend of ingredients that actually help to smooth, stimulate and tighten your rear!… and the rest of you of course.
Here are some images I took of the most amazing gifts I have ever received in the entire universe! #Obsessed
The Brazilian Bum Bum Cream I received contains a generous 240ml, and is also available in a 75ml travel size. It’s a thick consistency with a smooth texture that absorbs quick and doesn’t leave you feeling oily or tacky - just delicious smelling!!!
My skin is super soft since I’ve been using this and I can’t see me switching moisturisers…EVER.
On a side note, I’ve noticed a subtle shimmer on my skin after use, but it’s only visible in the Sun or under a light, so definitely not over powering like a shimmer cream. Very beautiful in the Summer!
The main ingredient is Guaraná extract which contains caffeine that is almost 5 times stronger than coffee. Caffeine is great for firming skin, and is used a lot in many eye creams.
Guaraná is just one of five delectable ingredients, to read up on the rest click ‘here’.
I 100% rate this 5 stars! ✩✩✩✩✩
240ml retails at $45.00 / £42.00
75ml retails at $20.00 / £18.00
The next hero product in this collection is the ‘Brazilian Crush’ body fragrance mist!
Now I must stipulate that Sol De Janeiro kindly sent me the collection barring the body mist due to UK customs import issues. BUT, it is now available in the UK and I purchased it on Cult Beauty, which ships worldwide!
Once again, you get the irresistible pistachio and salted caramel scent that will make you and everyone around you salivate! It can be used on your body, spritzed into your hair and even on to your clothes. I can usually smell it for a good few hours and then I feel the need to top it up, even though everyone else says they can still smell it.
This gets 5 stars ✩✩✩✩✩
Travel size 90ml bottle retails for $19.00 / £18.00
Or the big 240ml bottle (which I purchased) retails for $32.00 / £32.00
Next up we have the Brazilian Kiss - Cupuaçu Lip Butter. If I had to describe this in one word it would be ‘edible’. It’s so yummy it takes everything in me not to lick my lips after I’ve applied it! The consistency of the balm is silky, it glides on to your lips and leaves them feeling hydrated for hours. I applied it first thing this morning and once this afternoon, it’s now 5pm and I can still feel it on my lips.
If you’re looking to lure a certain someone in for cheeky kiss then slap some of this on your lips, they won’t be able to resist! Cheesy but true! ;)
Rating it ✩✩✩✩✩
You get 6.2g in the tube and it retails at $18.00 / £15.00
Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel is the first step to aid the longevity of this delicious scent on your body! Then you can layer up with the Bum Bum Cream and top it off with the body mist. I can see you might be thinking surely that amount of appetising Pistachio Caramel fragrance is going to over power you (are you mad?) but I can assure you it’s relevantly subtle and you will want to layer them to make sure it lingers all day!
The gel is infused with a blend of nourishing Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí and Coconut Oil - YUM! ✩✩✩✩✩
You get 385ml in this bottle - $25.00 / £21.00
I have rated 5 stars to every single product I have tried from this brand, and apparently I’m not the only one to be completely in love with it!! Check out the 5 star reviews online for yourself.
