Sol_de_Janeiro_Bumbum_Cream
If you are like me and are desperate to hit that elusive Rouge status at Sephora, you save any splurges for there. Now one easy fire way for me to rack up the Sephora points is to stock up on anything Sol de Janeiro (thanks Angela). However for those based in the UK, Selfridges, Harrods and Cult Beauty stock the brand. However the only gripe I have is the fact that the UK don't get to see any of the value sets which you can find in Sephora. Initially after watching Tati raving about their Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, I had to try this body moisturiser. If you are new to the range, I'd recommend trying their smaller travel sized version before investing in the full size. Honestly I can't get enough of the scent of this moisturiser - for me it's the "Sol de Janeiro" scent. A little bit of this thick moisturiser goes a long way and the scent lingers on the skin - if you use this, you don't need to wear perfume.

The moisturiser contains guarana which is a native Amazonian plant which is a form of caffeine. What does caffeine do - stimulates circulation and keeping your skin (and bum) super hydrated and smooth. I've actually got two of these large moisturisers and if I ever need a pick up this is what I reach for. When the opportunity came for my manager to bring me some items back from New York, I was able to grab a value set featuring a large tub of the Bum Bum Cream, but also a travel size version of their Brazilian Crush Body Mist and their Brazilian Kiss Lip Balm. The body mist has become a firm favourite, as it smells of summer and again the scent lasts on the skin all day long. Again if you use this, you don't need to wear any perfume and as the scent is that strong you only need to use a little bit of the body mist.

Their Brazilian Kiss Lip Balm, I won't lie, I'm still on the fence about. I honestly don't think it's the product itself which I have the issue with, just the size of the product - it's massive and you don't get much product in it. If it was shaped like a lipstick or a typical lip balm I think this would work better, and I wouldn't be worried when applying as to whether it would end up all over my mouth. After a quick browse on their Instagram account, I have spied that their bath bombs have finally been realised in the US - hopefully these will come to the UK soon. However as I'm in London next month, I've got the Hand Cream on my list of things I want to buy. I'm also debating whether to try their Acai body butter - however I have heard that it contains shimmer. You know I'll end up purchasing a travel size. Are you a fan of Sol de Janeiro, if not you need to try the range.

Note - I've just spotted the bath bombs are available on Cult Beauty (roll on pay day and I'm splurging).
