When most of us think of Brazil...we certainly think of beaches, sun, and beautiful people with beautiful bodies - including their "bums" (also known as your butt), in those tiny g-string bikinis.
That's why I was very intrigued when I heard about this cream for the bum, which was highly moisturizing, fragrant and skin tone enhancing!
What makes Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream so powerful are several Brazilian ingredients like: Guaraná, which stimulates circulation, boosts energy and smooth skin. Cupuaçu Butter, the Amazon’s answer to shea butter, full of fatty-acids, phytosterols and polyphenols to lock in moisture and help restore skin’s elasticity. Açaí, the potent berry and the antioxidant powerhouse, and of course Coconut Oil, which Brazilians have been enjoying for centuries and melts easily into skin to soften, condition and moisturize.
I loved opening up this large cheery yellow jar, with a concentrated cream that was slightly thick, but very creamy and smooth to allow easy application. I then applied this cream all over the body (it's not just for bums!). That's also when I noticed the sheer, beautiful, subtle shimmer on my arms, upper chest, legs, etc. The cream absorbed quickly and completely, so there was no feeling of greasiness or stickiness.
In addition my my skin feeling soft, supple and instantly smooth and glow-y, Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream also happens to have one of the best fragrances I've ever experienced*. It was slightly sweet, slightly floral - and even a little spicy, all at the same time. The fragrance lingered on my body for several hours afterwards, making this a nice way to combine fragrance and body care before heading out for the day (Note: this cream does not contain SPF).
I'm addicted! Treat yourself to this one - especially if you want to feel like you're in sunny Brazil no matter what time of year it is. - RLB
