Ever since it started getting cold out, my husband and I have been swimming at the indoor pool in our gym instead of jogging outside. My skin dries out like the desert with the hours in the gym every week, added to the exposure of water and chlorine.
I wanted something that would hydrate my skin but not leave it oily and sticky like a lot of face and body lotions. I wanted it to have firming characteristics and smell like the tears of a unicorn. I tried Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.
Sol De Janiero
Sol De Janiero’s co-founders Camila Pierotti and Heela Yang used their combined experiences from Clinique, Nars, and Lancôme to create a line of products that are just wonderful. I’ve personally used their body lotion and their shower gel and am truly impressed.
Sol De Janiero’s products are made cruelty-free with natural ingredients. They use cupuaçu butter, derived from the cupuaçu tree, which is known for its ability to moisturize, acaí berries which help tighten the appearance of skin, and coconut oil which moisturizes and repairs damaged skin cells.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is Sol De Janiero’s best-selling product, right now, with good reason. The main acting ingredients are cupuaçu butter, acaí berries, coconut oil, and guaraná.
Guaraná contains 5 times more caffeine than coffee beans. This benefits our skin because caffeine applied as a topical product is proven to constrict blood vessels which reduces external swelling for a short time period. It acts as a diuretic that shrinks fat cells and temporarily makes the skin smooth.
This cream is created without the use of parabens. Parabens have been linked to increase skin aging and DNA damaged when interacting with UVB rays from the sun.
When applied, it absorbs into my skin almost instantly. It doesn’t take 2 days to dry. It makes my skin smell great and keeps my skin moisturized. I use it every day and it has dramatically kept my skin from dehydrating despite the harsh chemicals in the pool and the cold weather. The key ingredients are all natural and cruelty-free.
