I first tried the Sol De Janeiro range by purchasing a mini kit from CultBeauty and have been hooked ever since! The scent is absolutely stunning with a sweet yet sophisticated blend of fruity goodness and an undertone of gorgeous nuttiness!
I was really excited when I received the full size shower cream-gel and a good sized Bum Bum butter in the FabFitFun Box! It has made my summer truly memorable (if your someone like me who associates scents to memories, then I’m sure you’ll understand!)
Brazilian Bum Bum Butter- This is a luxuriously thick yet silky and lightweight moisturising body butter. It applies flawlessly and sinks into the skin beautifully without leaving any sticky residue. A little also goes a long way. As this is very expensive (I mean really hurts the bank account) I use this very sparingly and layered over other moisturisers. I concentrate this on the bum and thighs for its firming claim.
4 Play Shower Cream-gel- This is a lovely ultra-hydrating shower cream-gel. It is thick in texture and becomes creamy and almost milky in consistency in the shower. It is really moisturising and it doesn’t lather up a lot which I don’t mind at all. It leaves your skin soft, smooth and supple which is the perfect base for moisturising.
Brazilian Bum Bum Butter-
Rich in South America’s secret ingredients with a hydrating blend of cupuaçu butter, açaí and coconut oil which provide the background for the key ingredient: guaraná. A native Amazonian plant, this fruit contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet (with almost five times more caffeine than coffee), giving your bottom the ultimate boost and stimulating circulation to keep it super smooth and tantalisingly toned, while also minimising cellulite. It also contains carrot seed oil which is one of my most loved oils!
4 Play Shower Cream-gel-
this moisturising shower gel is infused with nourishing cupuaçu butter, antioxidant superpower açaí and skin conditioning coconut oil to leave skin superbly soft and irresistibly smooth.
The thing I love the most about this product is the scent! I am absolutely addicted! I would repurchase it just for this very reason. It is a warming and comforting caramel- pistachio with a nutty tropical feel to it! Like a tropical getaway in a bottle! It lasts all day and envelopes you both in the shower and throughout the day! Absolutely the best thing about it!
Value for money:
With regards to the claims of firming and tightening and reducing cellulite this is by no means a miracle cream in that regards. It does give the skin a smoother appearance but you have to really slather this on to see much difference. At £44 for 240ml it is definitely a hefty sum for what it is. So it is great as a special gift, or a treat for yourself but I don’t see myself purchasing this as a firming cream continuously for what it claims.
I love the texture and scent of both products. My skin feels soft and smooth and smells amazing! The price point is the only reservations I have with this product however I know that this is due to the amazing quality ingredients it contains and the concentration of them so I can’t really complain! I would definitely try out the smaller kits before committing to the larger size so see if it is a game changer for you!
