BEAUTY. Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (Sol de Janeiro)

I’ve always been one to hate creams with a passion. I can still feel the sunscreen stick my face and my scarf together on a cold day on the slopes. I simply cannot stand the feeling of putting fabric on top of bodylotion that isn’t absorbed quite yet. After getting a rash on my skin due to a bodylotion from &Other Stories, I had to use one from La Roche Posay which was really good but was super thick and awful to wear under clothes. I had heard a lot about the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and when I found it at Sephora in Lisbon I was tempted to get it but since it was so damn expensive I put it back. After wandering around the shop for a few more minutes I turned to the counter to pay for the other stuff I did get and saw Spencer getting something wrapped by the employee. He had bought me the Bum Bum Cream! It’s so sweet of him, and he really shouldn’t have. No really… he shouldn’t… because now I really like the product and am very tempted to go out there and spend a small fortune on it again… First of all, I love the packaging. Second of all, I love the name. The cream itself has a gorgeous smell and color to it. And most importantly, although it looks very thick, it sinks into the skin like no other cream I ever tried before. If you despise the feeling of stickiness on your skin like I do (that’s what she said), I highly recommend you give the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream a go! But be warned, you’ll love it and will have to keep repurchasing it.
