Here a lil 5 minute review on some orange colored products! Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream is a ride-or-die for me🛁it smells like tropical vacation (think piña coladas) and it is the only cream that I’ve found that actually reduces the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite Origins Ginzing Gel Moisturizer is super light weight and smells like oranges🍊for me it is too thin for winter (I have combo skin) but I love it during the summer! Definitely good if you want to brighten the skin and tend to be more oily Ohii Lip Jelly in Agave is super thick (reminds me of Glossier Balm Dotcom but without the Vaseline feel) and it gives the slightest light pink shimmer to the lips that I love!

The Biggie Bum Bum Cream🐆💫
I was really excited to get my hands on one of these: Full disclosure, I don’t think this size is in stock at the moment, but Sol de Janeiro releases it as a limited edition product every so often. They do have the surfboard spatula available on their site though! A nice option for those trying to keep their jars more sanitary.🏄🏻♀️ SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream $76/16.9 oz It’s about $1 cheaper per ounce than the standard size, so the savings aren’t insane— it’s definitely more of a novelty or collectors piece. With over twice as much Bum Bum (pronounced boom boom btw 🤯 ) as the standard size, this should last me a while! It also comes with the silicone surfboard spatula. 🏄🏻♀️I find the spatula very easy to use & clean. While this is a great additional tool to have for the standard size creams, it’s forsure a necessity with the Biggie! ✨The special edition artwork is really fun & even more beautiful in person! You have to spin it around to see all the pretty ladies, so swipe through for all the angles! 🏖Not everyone loves this as much as I do to buy a giant vat of it-but it’s not become a new cult favorite since it landed at Sephora 5 years ago without reason. I was initially drawn to it back then for it’s caffeine content for preventing cellulite, the long lasting scent kept me coming back the most. For most days it’s an excellent body moisturizer, but there are definitely better creams for dry skin sufferers. The texture is dense with creamy emollients like Cupuaçu seed butter, Squalane & oils from Coconut, Açaí, Carrot seeds & Brazil nuts. It’s easy to use with my disability & leaves a healthy semi-sheen with very subtle micro shimmer, extremely wearable for all skin tones. Phthalate free fragrance ☕️Back to caffeine! There are mixed results for studies regarding caffeine & preventing or reducing cellulite. I’ve had a great experience using this cream pretty frequently for 5 years, I’m 33 & still have no cellulite, but this could be from so many other things or simply my genetics🧬 So maybe Bum Bum is just my butt’s lucky charm, but I’m glad I was willing to invest in my butt back then way before I did much else thoughtful for body care... Some experts have found that caffeine is able to facilitate the breakdown of fat by stimulating the enzymes which do just that. It’s been shown to temporarily constrict blood vessels, which decreases blood flow, reducing the appearance of inflammation. This can explain the temporary smoothing results some experience. The caffeine content in Guaraná is 2-5x the amount in coffee beans! Guaraná seeds were ancient medicine for the Guarani tribe & are still used today to produce energy drinks, supplements & Bum Bum!

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

Good morning 😊☀️
Let’s talk about my updated morning routine. So I worked out all of my Kylie skin products and my face is so happy. I use the origins scrub cleanser, the good molecules niacinamide toner, the good molecules niacinamide serum, the origins ginzing eye cream and the origins mega bright oil free moisturizer with spf 30. ￼the origins cleanser makes me feel so refreshed and awake🧡. It has little beads in it so it’s also and exfoliator. I try not to rub too hard because of that but this cleanser makes my face feel so clean and hydrated after. It also smells like oranges. This product replaced the Kylie skin foam cleanser (which kinda burned my face a little🤢). ($21)ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser ￼the good molecules toner is literally the best😍😍. This toner is supposed to brighten, make pores less visible and even out your skin tone. It did just that. I am so happy with the way my skin has turned out. I always had issues with discoloration and this toner helps with that😍. My skin is brighter and smoother and I have this toner to thank for that✨. ($14)GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner ￼the good molecules niacinamide serum does just about the same thing the toner does. It helps brighten my skin and minimize the look of pores. I love it. This product replaced my Kylie skin vitamin c serum (which did nothing). I love this serum. All you need is a few drops. ($6)GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum ￼the eye cream has really helped my dark circles and it makes me looks more awake. I love that it’s tinted and has a sponge tip applicator. This product replaced the Kylie skin eye cream (which did nothing). BEWARE that i have the on the go version and not the full product. ($25)ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff ￼for moisturizers I use the mega bright with spf if I’m going out and the ultra hydrating boost if I’m just sitting in the house. The ultra hydrating boost is a sample that they sent me and I was just trying out. I like it but it is kinda tingly on the skin. I’m not really sure if it’s supposed to be or not. But is does leave my skin looking hydrated so I’ll give it that. I’m not really sure is I’m going to be buying the full size product. ORIGINS - GinZing Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream The mega bright however feels nice on the skin, makes me look hydrated. This has also helped even out my skin tone but since it’s $59, I probably won’t buy it again😭. It’s just a little too expensive for me😭ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Bright SPF 30 Skin Tone Correcting Oil-Free Moisturizer I literally love my morning routine and for the fist time I actually see a change in my skin and I couldn’t be more excited ☺️☺️. But who knows, maybe I’ll switch it up on day. But for now this works for me 😊💖
Some lippies I’ve been lovin’ 💕 • 🌸ohii smells like pretty lil roses and goes on clear 🌸frank body has some sparkle in it for a nice shimmer (i’ve yet to try the scrub yet, but I don’t love that the oil in it leaks everywhere) 🌸glossier and of course the bday balm dotcom, another sparkle lil baby that i ♥️ • I used to never buy/use anything for my lips, but I’ve recently decided that I hate when they are chapped lol so now I’ve been going a little overboard with buying new lip products, but no regerts here 😂
post shower things, felt like doing a really quick routine since I wasn’t gonna be doing much today. The ohiibeauty lip balm is incredible! Zero stickiness and extremely moisturizing. I can’t stop putting it on. This lip balm is definitely one I would repurchase and especially because there are different scents available 🙂 to be honest I like this more than Glossier’s balm dot com because it’s way more matte!

It smells like candy too 🍭 glowrecipe watermelon glow ultra fine mist is so yummy! Refreshing, even & super fine mist and smells like watermelon jolly ranchers 🍉

Hydrating but non pore filling primer
Product claims: A primer with moisturizing benefits for smooth makeup application-best of both worlds. Product target concerns: Dryness, Fine lines and wrinkles, and oiliness My experience: I really wanted to love this primer because it has amazing reviews and it’s recommended by so many beauty gurus. I redeemed my Sephora points to get this mini size and I’m glad I didn’t buy the regular size. I have oily skin with a lot of pores and I like that this primer is great for hydration but it didn’t do anything for my texture. If you have smooth skin then this will work for you just fine as a primer but if you don’t then you’ll have to use another primer with it to fill your pores. I do suggest patting it in for a minute before you go in with your foundation because this is a little heavy/creamy. Do I recommend it to others? No because it’s very expensive for what it is to be honest. I wouldn’t want to pay $60 for this primer and then use one more primer in addition to do my makeup. Price: $60 for 1.7 oz. and $20 for 0.50 oz.

Glamglow - Glowstarter
GLAMGLOW - Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer PRODUCT A moisturizer that is targeted at illuminating and providing a glow, this is targeted toward normal to dry skin types. The texture is a bit more liquid than expected for a moisturizer (see second image). OPINION I am sure this is an excellent product for those with drier skin types, but for someone like e with combination to oily skin, this product is a disaster. The shimmer in it emphasizes skin texture and leaves you looking downright greasy. The one positive is that the moisturizer is lights so it works well to actually moisturize. I would not recommend this to anyone who does not have dry skin, even though I think the actual moisturizing properties will not be suitable for someone with truly dry skin. I do not think this product is worth it at $49, and give it a rating of 2/5 stars.

Holy-grail moisturizer for the harshest winters
I have been using the FARSALI 24K moisturing gel for almost 1.5 months now- and I am loving it. I have very dry skin and especially during the harsh winters in Chicago, my skin turns flaky and dull. I love how my skin feels after using this , it gives a subltle glow to the skin and gives it a healthy , hydrated finish . The product smells good too and is easy to apply , it does last long since few drops are enough to cover the whole face and neck. It doesn’t make the face look oily or greasy, which is the best part of it. I have used Clinique’s hydra surge before and hated how it left my skin looking so heavy, greasy and oily. I have absolutely become a fan of FARSALI after this, and has ordered a bunch of products from their line to try out.
