Glow Oil & Bod Buff

September 24, 2018

Yeah, I'm talkin' about Sol De Janeiro again! I love this cosmetic brand - it's my signature scent. The (somewhat new) Limited Edition Sol De Janeiro Glow Oil is a moisturizing shimmer oil for the body. It kinda smells like the signature Sol De Janeiro pistachio-caramel scent, but is little different. It's delicious, but BEWARE, the scent is strong and lingers..


I used Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil all summer and the natural glow enhanced my look and photos dramatically - all you need is a little sun to reflect the sparkle. Apply the body oil along your arms and down the front of your legs. This is not an all-over body oil (unless you wanna look like you rolled around in sparkly grease). The bottle says for the body and face, but this stuff is thick and there's a sh*t ton of fragrance in it - I wouldn't recommend putting it on your face.

I'm always cautious applying oil to my body in fear that it will ruin my clothes. I haven't experienced the Sol De Janeiro rubbing off on my clothes, but it is an oil and it's tinted, so I'm super careful where I apply it - you should be too. 

The bottle is small, great for travel AND a little product goes a long way. I used this Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil all summer and am not half way through the bottle yet. I've tried too many body shimmer products AND this one is my favorite. 


I have a lot to say about Sol De Janeiro Bod Buff. The soothing scrub 'n' mask doubles as a body exfoliator and detoxifying mask. This thick, quartz crystal infused Amazon River clay dons the signature scent, pistachio-caramel AND it's potent! 

The texture is nice - thick, creamy and the perfect consistency of quartz crystals, tropical volcanic pumice and rice grain. This stuff will leave your skin feeling soft and perfectly polished. The Amazon River Kaolin clay has negatively-charged particles that bond with positively charged toxins and thus purifies your skin. It's little too scientific for me, but I'll take your word for it! The tube is a nice size and easily folds, so you're not left with a ton of unusable, unattainable product. 


When I initially tried the product, I was al little turned off by the color AND when I realized it was intentional - hmm.. This old-mustard shade is kinda funky and reminiscent of gross baby food. The color is a not a deterrent for me, but I'm confused by the creative choice. Oh, and even if you think you've removed all the Bod Buff from your skin, you are undoubtably gonna have yellow residue on your towel. 


The Sol De Janeiro lineup also includes the Brazilian Touch Hand Cream, Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance, Bum Bum Body cream, Brazilian 4 Pay Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel, Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter, Samba 2-step Foot Fetish Care and Bum Bum Bath Bomba. I've tried all but the last two and award Sol De Janeiro body cosmetic brand of the year (AGAIN).


Many Sol De Janeiro products are available in a mini size (LOVE THAT). They're perfect for travel and refillable. I'm gonna pack the mini Bum Bum Body Cream and mini Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel for my next adventure in Tulum, Mexico. It's the perfect beach vacation scent. 

These Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Body Cream samples contain just enough for one application.  I appreciate when cosmetic companies create quality samples. I got these at Sephora, but am sure all retail establishments that sell Sol De Janeiro have samples - get yourself some, and trust me, you'll be addicted too.

Sol de Janeiro

April 04, 2018

Sol de Janeiro, the brand behind my signature scent, has created Brazilian Touch Hand Cream AND it's amazing! Sol de Janeiro body products smell like pistachio and salted caramel. I get so many compliments on my 'perfume', but it's Sol de Janeiro Brazilian BUM BUM Cream. The scent is delicious.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Touch Hand Cream has a similar texture to the Bum Bum Cream, but is slightly lighter. It goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. The Sol de Janeiro scent is strong and while I do love it on my body, it's a bit too intense for a hand cream. The Cupuacu Buter is hydrating, Acai rich in antioxidants, Coconut Oil nourishes your cuticles and he Brazil nut aids in strong, healthy nails. It's the perfect hand cream recipe, BUT the scent is overpowering. I'll use this little tube of cream on my body - its the perfect travel size.


Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter is one of my favorite lip balms - I have one in my bathroom, one at my computer and one in my handbag! The light, creamy texture is nourishing and the tube is BIG, so it will last a long time. This super-hydrating lip balm is a must have.


The pistachio-caramel scent of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is AMAZING! The scent is strong, but sweet and intriguing. The cream is super-nourishing and has a slight shimmer that gives your skin a subtle glow. Perfume often gives me a headache, but of course I wanna smell nice - this body cream is my signature scent and the scent is delicious.


Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist is the same yummy scent of the cream, but in a light body mist. The original bottle is HUGE and now there's a mini (which is still kinda big). You're gonna want to surround yourself with this scent. You don't need a spritz if you're wearing Bum Bum body cream (unless you're one of those overpowering scented people), but it's great for evening scent touch ups.

Stuff The Stocking With..

December 14, 2017

In my house the unveiling of the stocking stuffers is kinda like the warmup to presents. Stocking stuffers should be small, exciting and typically inexpensive - I'm not opposed to a high-value gift card though! Here's a list of unique stocking stuffers for the product junkie, makeup loving person in your life. 

Sephora Christmas inspired sheet masks are the perfect stocking stuffer - They're Christmas themed and pink. Choose from Sephora Avocado Skincare Gloves or Sephora Almond Skincare Socks or both. When you open the packet, you'll notice the gloves/socks are attached - tear at the perforated line, put them on, and pull the tabs around your wrist/ankle to seal in the moisturizing treatment. The inside has a fiber lining drenched in solution and the outside a plastic lining. Best thing about these masks is you can go about your business while wearing them. 


The M.A.C Snow Ball collection is AMAZING! I wish I was privy to the launch sooner, cause many items sold out before I had the chance to splurge. The collection is winter themed, sparkly and festive. I'm super excited to get the Face Powder in Here Comes Joy in my stocking - yes, I filled my stocking with amazing gifts. The high-impact shimmer will light up your complexion. AND I love the Festive Bling! crystal and glitter festive adornment. It's the perfect accessory for a New Years celebration. 


KNC Beauty Collagen Infused Lip Masks are super fun. There are five masks in a package, so you can share (maybe). These all-natural, jelly-like lip masks moisturize your lips, and well, they're just fun to use. Apply the squishy mask to your lips and relax for 15-20 minutes.


This is some of the best beauty news I heard all year - Sephora has a mini section now. YES, mini, travel-size products from our favorite brands. Mini cosmetics are great stocking stuffers. AND now we can try the best products for a fraction of the cost. These mini's are perfect for travel too. I was so impressed with the mini lineup, I purchased way too many products. Joking, I knew exactly what I was doing - creating the perfect Christmas stocking (for myself). These are three of my favorite products in 2017..

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist is the same yummy scent of Sol Janeiro Bum Bum cream, but in a light body mist. You're gonna want to surround yourself with this pistachio-caramel scent.

Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir is worth its weight in gold! This beauty oil has forever changed my makeup routine and enhanced my look dramatically. I apply 'many' drops of the elixir to my damp beautyblender and gently blend my foundation, concealer, under eye brightener and cream-to-powder highlighter. LOVE.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream is a concentrated 30 percent hyaluronic acid cream. If water was creamy- this would be it. It's so refreshing, and leaves your skin feeling silky and super-nourished.


I need to chime in on this makeup blender sensation - I'm a beautyblender® fan, but was curious about the Dab + Blend Applicator by MILK. If you're into foundation and heavy makeup enhancement, this is a fun tool for you. Unlike a sponge, this silicone-like applicator doesn't soak up makeup and washes easily. 


On that note, beautyblender® releases new products often. I lost count of the colors this egg-like sponge was available in throughout the last few years. I LOVE this makeup applicator. Pair with Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir and you've just changed your makeup routine forever. 

The new beautyblender® keep.it.clean kit includes a small (very tiny) bar of soap and cleansing mitt. You can use any soap (I like the beautyblender liquid), add little water and gentle rub the makeup applicator against the mitt for a super-cleansed sponge.

The pistachio-caramel scent of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is AMAZING! The scent is strong, but sweet and intriguing. The cream is super-nourishing and has a slight shimmer that gives your skin a subtle glow.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist is the same yummy scent of the cream, but in a light body mist. The original bottle is HUGE and now there's a mini (which is still kinda big). You're gonna want to surround yourself with this scent.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter is one of my favorite lip balms - I have one in my bathroom, one at my computer and one in my handbag! The light, creamy texture is nourishing and the tube is BIG, so it will last a long time. If I had to chose my favorite new Cosmetic brand of 2017, it would be Sol Janeiro Brazilian.


If you've been living under a rock, you probably haven't heard of Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir. This product is up there with Sugarbearhair and (well) any of the multitude of detox teas taking over Instagram. It's worth its weight in gold! This beauty oil has forever changed my makeup routine and enhanced my look dramatically. I apply 'many' drops of the elixir to my damp beautyblender and gently blend my foundation, concealer, under eye brightener and cream-to-powder highlighter. This elixir is amazing. It's available in two sizes - the mini is perfect for travel.


This is intense hydration - Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream is a concentrated 30 percent hyaluronic acid cream. If water was creamy- this would be it. It's so refreshing, and leaves your skin feeling silky and super-nourished. The non-greasy cream absorbs fairly quickly (a little goes a long way), and doesn't leave your skin shiny. Water Drench Hyaluronic Cream is available in two sizes.


Luxury hairstyling brand, IGK, was founded by in-demand stylists from Miami, New York, and Los Angeles. YOU GOTTA VIEW THESE GUYS ONLINE! These stylists are really fascinating. I'd fly across the country and break the bank to get an appointment with any of these stylists. I LOVE the IGK product line. I have too many IGK products in full-size and travel size. Product junkie here! 

IGK Prenup Instant Spray Hair Mask is my favorite. The 360 aerosol spray allows for easy application. The scent is delicious, and your hair will feel nourished and silky after just one minute. I use this mask every time I wash my strands. This hydrating hair mask is a MUST HAVE!


Sephora's soothing Coconut Water Lip Balm is another one of my favorite balms. The scent is delicious and the product feels nourishing on your lips. This balm is available in Goji, Rose, Tangerine, Almond and Coconut Water.

Sephora Honey Lip Scrub is amazing! When I first applied the scrub, I thought this isn't working - how can a balm exfoliate your lips. After a few vigorous applications I reached the grains inside. I rub the balm in circular motions on my lips until they're drenched in product, then I use my finger and massage the grains onto my lips. The result - smooth lips in seconds. It tastes good too - not that you should eat it, but scrubs tend to get in your mouth. LOVE!

The pistachio-caramel scent of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is AMAZING! I can't wear perfume (too sensitive), but this deliciously scented product line doesn't bother me at all. The scent is strong, but sweet and intriguing. The cream is super-nourishing and has a slight shimmer that gives your skin a subtle glow.

I was super excited when Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist released. It's the same yummy scent of the cream, but in a light body mist. The bottle is HUGE and I'm sure will last six months. This body mist can be used on your skin, your hair and you even lightly spray your closet to give your clothes a pistachio-caramel scent - you're gonna want to surround yourself with this scent.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter is one of my favorite lip balms - I have one in my bathroom, one at my computer and one in my handbag! The light, creamy texture is nourishing and the tube is BIG, so it will last a long time. The cream and lip balm are infused with super nourishing ingredients Cupaçu butter, Açai and coconut oil. If I had to chose one product line of the year, it would be Sol Janeira Brazilian.
