Excuse me?  Anyone know why Sol De Janerio named their cream the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream?  I’d really love to know… Anyway, moving forward….


I purchased this product back in November during the Sephora 20% VIB sale just as a “what the heck is this all about” purchase. I’ve heard so many youtubers rave about this cream, that it is so amazing and everyone needs to have it in their stash. Well, my arm got twisted and I now have it in my stash. It sat for a month waiting for me to use it, not sure why I didn’t open it right away, guess maybe it didn’t interest me at the time.  But then again it could have been all the other products that came in at the same time and i paid more attention to those products.

Anyways, like I mentioned, I didn’t crack this open right away, it was in early January 2018 that I finally said to myself, “open the darn thing now”.  As I was opening it, the first thing I noticed was the AROMA, man oh man, if your a person like me who do not like heavily scented products, then this may not be for you.  However, I toughed it out and thought to myself “you just spent $57 on this product and you are darn well going to use it”. So I showered and continued with my night time skin routine and took the Bum Bum cream (cant help but laugh) and applied it… dang, what was I waiting for?

This product is so smooth and made my skin feel so soft and yummy… the only thing that kinda turns me off is the scent. Dang though, it’s awesome. However, I really struggled with the scent and end up not using it for another couple of weeks. After that, I’ve not looked back and I look forward to applying it. The texture is so nice and creamy and I love the way it leaves my skin and I have even gotten used to the scent. I can’t even describe in words what the scent smells like but if I had to describe it, I would say that it smells like a coconut smoothie… lol, I don’t know. Now I know what all the hoop.laa is all about, it makes my skin feel very nice and looks fabulously young looking, is that possible?

If you have not tried the Sol Taneiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, take it from me, a real skeptic, you need this in your life… Treat yourself to a spa type sensation and youthfulness, you will never look back… mmmm hmmm…. 😊

Here’s What I do to battle Ol’ Man Winter

With all this cold weather my skin and hair are taking a real beating, very dry and needs continuous attention.  As you all know that during the winter the air is much more dryer, meaning less moisture in the air, and our skin / hair need help to protect and maintain our natural glow.

soap & GloryAs I get older, it seems that my natural skins moisturizer does not work as well and my skin becomes much more flaky and rougher.  When I was younger, the cold did not bother my skin as much but now, Oww Laa Laa, my skin and hair need help.

The following are some tips that I do to combat Ol’ Man Winter:

1.  Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize.

2.  Moisturize some more….lol

3.  I like to use an exfoliant every morning and a lighter exfoliant that has more moisturizing properties in it, at night.  This helps to remove all  my dead dry skin, ewwww, and keep my make up looking fresher.

4.  I use a day moisturizer in the morning and before I go to bed I use a serum and an eye cream.  Theres a whole routine around my morning and night moisturizing routine, this is just a quick review.IMG_0318

5.  I like to use a liquid foundation like my Dior Skin in the morning and use a mineral powder foundation if I need touching up through out the day, but mostly just the Diorskin is sufficient.  I touch up with a powder foundation like MAC’s mineral foundation.

7.  I can not go with out a lip balm.  I use anything I can get my hands on but lately I have been using the IOS Lip Balm in Cherry.  mmmm love love.Image_1_Summer_Fruit_Open_rev_35

8.  For my hair I use more leave in conditioners and use a separate hair conditioning mask on Sundays.  This helps to lock in what little moisturizing properties I have left in my hair and add more as my hair is normally dry dry dry.

9.  Another little trick I do is applying a deep moisturizer to my feet and hands and slap on a pair of nice soft socks.  In the morning my feet and hands feel a lot better and softer.

10.  I switch over to mineral products for my eye shadows and face powders, they look better through out the day as I go in and out of the cold and into the house or office.

So there is a list of things that I do to battle Ol’ Man Winter from drying out my skin.
