From the title of this post, I’m sure you’re wondering, “What in the world is that?!” I thought that the first time I saw this in Sephora. Then, I smelled it and fell in love.
Sol de Janiero’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is a body cream (and not just for your bum) that is probably my favorite smell ever. I am not good at describing scents, so let’s give it a try anyway. It is a warm, slightly vanilla scent that has a deepness to it. See, terrible at describing scents.
A little big goes a long way. I’ve had this for three weeks and use it daily and have only used a little bit. The cream itself is very smooth and hydrating. It also has a very light iridescence to it that I didn’t notice until last week when I was out in the sunshine.
The only downfall is this body cream is expensive though. I have the 8.1 ounce tub and it was $45. It’s ridiculous, I know. I have found that I only need to apply body cream in the morning after my shower. My skin stays hydrated all day even until my next shower. It’s amazing. This would be a great gift to give or receive. I’m hoping my tub lasts a good long time because I know I will want to repurchase it. The cream is also supposed to help tighten and smooth the look of skin. I can’t say if that is 100% true, but it couldn’t hurt.
I highly recommend at least checking it out and trying it at Sephora. You can also find it on Amazon. This has quickly replaced any other body butter, lotion, or cream I have used in the past.
