Must Have Monday.

I'm sharing with you a little something I discovered a year and half ago. This adorable container with the retro feel holds a luxurious, heavenly body lotion that will have you like, OMG.

It's called Brazilian Bum Bum Cream by Sol de Janeiro. It promotes itself as a firming, hydrating lotion that will tighten those areas that we want tight - like the booty and thighs.

Does it do that? Truthfully I don't know.

But I can vouch for the following reasons you should check it out. For one it smells so amazing; it's like that suntan, summer, tropical amazing scent that you just can't get enough of. I honestly open the jar sometimes for the aromatherapy of it all, and I inhale so deeply...

Second, I love that it absorbs instantly onto my skin. Nothing worse then applying lotion and then trying to slink into a pair of skinny jeans while that layer of cream is still on your skin. 

Third, I LOVE the subtle glow it leaves on my skin. I love it for when I am wearing a dress, I think it makes my calves look more defined, it's almost like contouring for your calves. Also, I think it helps the appearance of the skin the peeks out when I'm wearing ripped jeans. Nothing worse than dry knees peeking out of a pair of those!

I will warn the ladies who are sensitive to scents, this might not be the product for you as it is heavily scented. That would be my only con. As much as I LOVE how it smells, I sometimes think they could take it down by 20% and the product wouldn't be any worse off. But I digress.

Oh, another note, I am all about the fact that it's paraben/sulfate/phathalate free. That's something that I am really trying to work towards in all my personal products these days.

If you are curious, I suggest popping into Sephora (that's where I buy it) and finding a tester. Give it a go and see how you like it. If you're sold, then you can buy it HERE.
