Bought by me
I really feel like I’ve been scripting this Sol de Janeiro submit for all the day, however after I take a look at the clock it has solely been about 2 hours. I believe as a result of I awoke on the common work time on my day without work after which proceeded to do some stuff for my day job for like 4 hours which was approach longer than I had anticipated, however I really feel a bit higher now going into tomorrow that I’ve gotten some the issues on my very lengthy to do record accomplished!
I resisted getting Sol de Janeiro for awhile as a result of it appeared tremendous fashionable (nonetheless is to some extent) and really costly for only a moisturizer. Lastly, throughout one of many VIB Rouge occasions, I caved and received myself slightly sampler and a few Bum Bum Cream after which relaxation is historical past! I get it now!
Shampoo and Conditioner
Firstly, these mini bottles have the cutest packaging! They’ve a matte end making them enjoyable to choose up from a tactile perspective and even the buttons to press to open the bottles is so cutely accomplished! After having fun with the perfume of the Bum Bum Cream a lot, I made a decision to choose up a vacation set containing some mini haircare that had the identical Cheirosa ’62 scent (a mix of pistachio, salted caramel and vanilla). The Brazilian Joia Shampoo and Conditioner are sulfate-free, colour-safe, bond-repairing and weightlessly hydrates hair. Color-safe is one thing I at all times attempt to search for now, however typically I’ve discovered that almost all shampoos and conditioners are pretty gently and it is provided that I’m blonde that I’d actually need to follow particular haircare merchandise.
If having a bathe is remedy for you, like it’s for me, scents of issues are crucial and each the shampoo and conditioner smelled deliciously like Cheirosa ’62, however solely a touch of it remained in my hair after all the things was rinsed out. Each merchandise had a really creamy texture and my coarse hair felt very mushy even and not using a hair masks. This is perhaps a bit heavy for these with nice hair in comparison with my coarse and porous hair.
Brazilian Crush Perfume Mist
I suppose the Sol de Janiero individuals knew we’d not be capable of get sufficient of the Cheirosa ’62 scent so this hair and physique mist is fairly excellent to maintain that candy scent going! The mist is pretty light-weight and smells concentrated so if I’m spritzing my hair, I solely do two sprays as my porous hair retains scent fairly effectively. I additionally see slightly product be aware on the Sephora web site that this can be utilized on lingerie as effectively! Ooh la la!
Rio Radiance Cream and Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Initially, I wasn’t going to assessment these two physique lotions, however they’ve been too good to me this summer season to not speak about! I first picked up the mini model of the notorious Bum Bum Cream simply to see if I would love it and sure, I DEFINITELY liked it! If you have not tried any “tub” merchandise from Sol de Janiero, you must even only for how goddamn satisfying their lids are! They’ve such thick and grippy lids that even when your arms are coated in product, the lid/tub is not going to be slipping out of your arms anytime quickly! As for the precise physique cream, it’s tremendous hydrating, creamy, however is not in the least greasy. It does have a reasonably intense Cheirosa ’62 perfume so you’ll not want any fragrance if you happen to apply this to your complete physique!
The Rio Radiance Cream was one I picked up earlier this 12 months because of a Favourites video from Tati (sure, I nonetheless watch her to recollect the explanations I began watching Magnificence Yotubers all these years in the past) primarily due to the presence of mica within the cream in order that I may get slightly little bit of a summer season glow. Additionally it is apparently a restricted version containing the scent Cheirosa ’87 which is a mix of photo voltaic tuberose, leite de coco and vanilla all of which are supposed to remind us of summer season on the seaside. The scent isn’t fairly as candy as Cheirosa ’62, however nonetheless pretty robust and lasts upon utility. The mica can be very delicate and actually simply offers pores and skin a touch of glow.
Closing verdict: The haircare I did like, however it is going to most likely be awhile earlier than I repurchase as I nonetheless have a lot haircare to assessment and the physique lotions are a particular repurchase! The one unhappy factor concerning the physique lotions I like a lot is that the scent is just too robust for my husband’s nostril and he begins to sneeze which is so disappointing! I hope that within the winter when the air is not fairly so “heavy and humid” that it will likely be higher as a result of he solely commented on it final month after I wore Rio Radiance.
