I first fell in love with Sol De Janeiro’s BUM BUM cream when I received a sample in my ASOS parcel a few months ago.
Since then, I just had to purchase the full-size tub. I love the scent and it really does smooth out your cellulite, so it appears less visible! I mean who doesn’t want that?
Anyway, the lovely Danielle’s Beauty Blog shared a code on Instagram for this Sol De Janeiro x Look Fantastic box for £35 and I just HAD to get it. Code was SOLSUBS. BUT I’ve just checked Look Fantastic and the box is now sold out, sorry peeps.
The box had goodies worth £91, including the infamous BUM BUM cream!
- Bum Bum Cream 75ml – worth £20
- Janeiro 4Play Shower Gel 90ml – worth £10
- Cheirosa ’62 Mist 90ml – worth £19
- Joia Shampoo 90ml – worth £12
- Brazilian Kiss Lip Butter 6.2g – worth £15
- Triple Butter Hair Repair Treatment 75ml – worth £15
- A sample of Elasti-Cream
Everything, I mean EVERYTHING smells incredible! As I mentioned above I’ve only ever tried the BUM BUM Cream, and I rate it highly. It contains Guarana extract, which contains five times the amount of caffeine as coffee, has properties that stimulate circulation as well as smoothen, tighten, and firm the skin, while the antioxidant acai helps keep the skin looking and feeling healthy and fresh. Cupuacu butter is full of fatty acids, phytosterols, and polyphenols that lock in moisture and improve skin elasticity, while coconut oil – as some will know – is an excellent moisturiser.
Anyway, I was intrigued to try other products from the range. From first impressions, I really like the Lip Butter – glides onto the lips beautifully and has that amazing Summery scent, Hair Repair Treatment – worked wonders on my hair, I love the scent but think I prefer Olaplex No.3 as a treatment and the Mist makes me smell lovely.
Overall, I’d say if there was one product you NEED to try from this box, it has to be the BUM BUM cream, however the other products included are really lovely to experiment with too.
