body cream perfect for dry, winter skin!
sol de janeiro gifted me their Biggie Bum Bum Cream recently and she’s the bomb! The super moisturizing body cream has the signature scent that I’m obsessed with! The cute spatula that’s included makes application super easy. The cream is a bit on the thicker side but it absorbs so fast. The best part is that it keeps my skin moisturized ALL DAY without having to reapply. It’s perfect for these frigid temperatures on the east coast 🙏🏾 SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream

☀️big ‘ol SOL de Janeiro haul
If you have read one of my past posts about Sol de Janeiro, you already know I’m a dedicated Bum Bum cream user. We’re celebrating our 5 year anniversary this Spring🧴👰🏻! We’re very happy together🧡 I do pray every night they will release a deodorant!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeaase 🌴After trying various samples of their other body care & hair care products, I finally just broke down & went deeper into the jungle of my obsession. 🇧🇷 SOL de Janeiro means January Sun in Portuguese. I’ve always loved that play on words (Rio de Janeiro) & sentiment. In Rio, January is the height of Summer sunshine. I have a January birthday, & growing up in Northern California, this was definitely not the case🌁 The warm, rich sweet nutty scent is so comforting to me year round. I’ll be writing in-depth reviews for everything here, but if you want to check out my full review, the ingredient breakdown & scent profile info on SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream it’s in a previous post😘 I was really excited to finally get my hands on a 🏄🏻♀️ SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream Almost 17 ounces of my favorite body cream with the adorable purple surfboard spatula💜 In that post I also reviewed SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist which I completely love, only wish it lasted longer... So, enter: SOL de Janeiro - Cheirosa ’62 Eau de Parfum SOL de Janeiro - Cheirosa '71 Body Mist Just wasn’t the scent for me... but I had to give it a shot. It’s intense for a body spray, certainly more staying power than their Brazilian Crush body spray. It smells like very sweet kettle corn 🌽? SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Sanitizer Spray A hand sanitizer that smells like bum bum? Yes please. Mind you, this is still hand sanitizer, but there’s a slight hint of that bum bum scent you love. My favorite hand sanitizer! A must with: SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Cream also reviewed in my previous post. I’m still trialing SOL de Janeiro - Bum Bum Body Scrub But it smells wonderful, very moisturizing, but could be a bit too rough for sensitive skin.... SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo my bf & agreed this was just ok, but we stan the conditioner hard: SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Conditioner this is the shit! Seriously my new favorite conditioner! Last but not least, SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel is a body wash I love to keep in my rotation. Smells like bum bum, so it’s a wonderful shower experience if you love their signature scent. ✨What are your favorite scented bath & body products? Or do you have a fav SOL de Janeiro product?
Sephora Summer Favorites Set- Worth It? 🌺
I recently purchased the Sephora Summer Favorites Set during the 2020 VIB sale. And I’m so sad to say that it is not sold anymore 😭.

Anyways, here are my some of my favorites from the set! - Fresh Sugar Caramel Lip Balm - Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops - Supergoop Play Everyday Lotion SPF - Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream fresh - Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm-Blood Orange SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 30 with Sunflower Extract ISLE OF PARADISE - Self Tanning Drops
Sk+N/MUSE can do no wrong 🔥
I absolutely had to pick up a few things after a few skinsta friends posted about this incredible brand. SK+N/MUSE creates body products aimed to prioritize the needs of Black women and elevate their beauty experience. I am not Black (you don’t have to be) but I wanted to try these beautiful products out and give you my thoughts. 90% of their resources are obtained from small businesses. For example, their Shea is sourced from Nigeria! They are eco-friendly and have a refill policy where they refill your returned, empty jar with any product at a 10% discounted rate (applies to LA residents and surrounding area) I picked up their Body Oil and Citrus Body Butter Body Oil: sold in 100 ml or 60 ml. I purchased the 60 ml to start off. First off, the packaging is so luxurious and you can tell just how much time and energy went into making it perfect. The ingredients are just as amazing with Egyptian Honey, Moroccan Oil, Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E. It’s so silky and sultry and you can tell that just from looking at the consistency. Citrus Body Butter: smells SO GOOD. There are so many scents to choose from. I picked up the 2 oz container but they also sell a 9 oz. Again, it’s so luxurious and a little goes a long way. I found that using a too much left a greasy residue, but a tiny scoop was the perfect amount for soft, glowing skin. Ingredients are Shea, Cocoa, Coconut, Rose-hip, Avocado, and orange.

Come thru innovation!
Currently testing out the new Kosas - Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant . I couldn’t help but be super intrigued by this product because first of all PACKAGING. And second of all, a deodorant with AHAs?! So interesting and innovative. I am about a week in of consistent use and : 🦖Easy to apply - great rollerball applicator 🦖Smell is super faint so it basically smells like nothing 🦖Controls odor 🦖Sweat control pretty good, living a v sedentary life these days tho so barely sweating 🦖Need to take some pictures to see if it actually brightens underarms Per the website: Your pits need an AHA moment. This is a clean, stain-free deodorant with a unique blend of AHAs for the ultimate BO-fighting treatment. Bonus points: soothes skin, brightens, and helps prevent ingrown hairs. No aluminum. No baking soda. Only pit-nourishing ingredients allowed. I got the Serene Clean scent from the site for $15(pricey for a deodorant but I am treating myself these days ☺️)

🌿 native deodorant: great scent, chalky texture
i was so excited when i saw these at target! i have been intrigued by natural deodorant for a while, but afraid to take the plunge. would the scent be strong enough / complimentary to my natural scent? would it even work? i’ve gradually been detoxing from dove products and using these native deodorants for the last two months. (+) natural ingredients, accessibility (sold at target), beautiful packaging, lovely scents. NATIVE - Eucalyptus & Mint Deodorant is my preferred scent - at first i thought that it would be a little too woodsy, but it’s very clean and unisex. NATIVE - Jasmine & Cedar Deodorant also has a nice scent, but it’s more subtle and not as floral as i would have wanted. (-) texture! now that i’m more than halfway done with these, the product has mixed with my body oils and it just feels chalky to roll on. it’s still effective as a deodorant, but it doesn’t glide on smooth like my old dove products. i would still use them because the product may be better for me, but i’m still getting used to the feel. it also takes a bit of time for the white residue to melt into my skin, but it’s fairly easy to wipe from my clothes (when you get that inevitable swipe into your shirt, lol).

Bath & Body Works Summer Soaps
I love bath & body works products, especially their soaps. They have SO MANY different scents and the quality is top notch & a lot of their soaps have essential oils in them. If you don’t have their app download it! I never buy full price on any bath & body works products because everyday they have some sort of sale and every time you purchase an item you earn points and can redeem them for a full size product up to $16.50 ✨ Right now they have a deal going on (you need the app) for 4 soaps for $20 and 6 soaps for $26. This deal happens a lot + so many others. These are the only soaps I use. Everyone that comes over and uses my soaps always tell me how nice their hands feel and smell after using it & how cute the bottle looks.
Didn’t Work 😕
I have tech neck - I’m a millennial and I’m pretty sure I got tech neck before I was 10. After using this product? I still have tech neck. I don’t know why I really thought this little tube of wonder cream was going to do anything to the deep horizontal lines on my neck that have probably been there for 20 years. This product didn’t do jack. It probably moisturized-yeah, but I was already just putting my face moisturizer on my neck. Also I wasn’t a fan of the roller ball. It just seems like a great way for bacteria to get in there and find a happy place. What’s wrong with a regular tube? Nothing. So save your money on this if it’s still out there. I bought this from Ulta Beauty, but wasn’t able to find it on their website so who knows. This product was just unnecessary and didn’t do what it said it was going to. Just moisturize your neck people.

Smell like summer all year around
I have raved about the @soldejaneiro Brazilian Bum Bum cream before and I'm here to rave about it again! Just imagine the perfect summer day. You’ve just spent the day at the beach with your besties. You’re freshly bronzed from laying out all day and you’re getting ready to go to a seafood dinner. You put on the perfect white summer dress because who doesn’t love wearing white in the summer. You then coat your freshly tan legs with this perfect cream that smells like Summer & Sunshine all jarred up. Making your tan legs look glowy and smooth ✨ That is what I think of when I think of the Bum Bum Cream. This is my favorite cream to spoil myself with when I need a little pick me up. It’s the perfect mix of Sunshine & Summer and can be used all year around. I mean who doesn’t want a reminder of warmer, sunnier days when the colder months come along. And can we talk about that texture 😩. It glides onto your skin so effortlessly and is so smooth!If you haven’t tried this body cream yet you have no idea what you are missing out on ☀️ I hope you all have an amazing tuesfay! Don’t forget to stop & smell the roses.... or this bum bum cream whichever you prefer 🌹SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
