FabFitFun Summer 2019

Hi guys! I am back from another trip. My apologies for some delays in my posts. I’ve been so busy lately and had to take care of a lot of stuff. For today’s post, I would like to share with you the products I received for this Summer’s FabFitFun Box. As always, this season’s box is full of stuff I can use, even though there’s a couple of items that I already own, but they’re those items that I have always enjoyed using. I swear, I tried to make a decent flatlay for you all, but my cat Frodo (Dodo) just won’t let me. He pretty much photobombed most of my shots and I thought it might be fun for you all to see. I must let you know that this cat seems to work at the Department of Customs (lol) because he feels the need to inspect everything that gets inside the house, haha! Nothing goes through until he gets to sniff each and every item and gives his stamp of approval.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream review

 

Sol De Janeiro

 

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (mini/2.5 oz: 20 USD, 8.1 oz: 45 USD) – Reviewed further here. This is one of my favorite body creams ever. The smell can be quite strong but it’s nice and quite yummy. I love the shimmer that is incorporated in this cream.

 

Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel (mini/3 oz: 10 USD, 13 oz: 25 USD) – This smells like the Bum Bum Cream and it’s a creamy shower gel that foams really well.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream (4 oz: 28 USD, 8 oz: 38 USD) – This has always been my fave when it comes to treating my hair against frizz. I also love its scent and the fact that it doesn’t weigh my hair down. I wouldn’t mind receiving this all the time in my Fabfitfun box.

 

Invisibobble Original Duo Pack (16 USD) – This is my fave hair tie especially when I’m working out. It provides a strong grip for just about any activity you might be doing, yet it doesn’t leave any folds and traces on the hair strands.

Jennifer Zeuner Star Double Necklace (50 USD value) – Such a dainty minimalist necklace that goes with everything. I like how subtle it looks yet it also looks elegant.

 

Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray

 

Generation Clay Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask (39 USD) – I like this violet-ish clay mask. It takes a little while to set and dry on the face but it does purify the pores and take out excess oil.

 

Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray (25.95 USD) – This is a really nice facial spray to use everyday. It’s great as a facial hydrator or to soften harsh makeup, and even to set it. A definite must-have.

 

Whish Exfoliating Foot Mask (32 USD) – This foot mask works really well in moisturizing the feet because it has a softening effect. It does have a somewhat strong coconut and verbena mix scent.

 

Coola Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray (1.7 oz: 36 US) – I have mixed feelings about this makeup setting spray. It leaves a white powdery substance on the face and it sticks to my hair right after each and every spray. I’m not sure if this is such a good idea for being a setting spray at all.

 

Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote

 

Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote (50 USD) – This summer-ready comfy tote can carry just about anything. It’s perfect for any picnic and it’s 100% cotton. I love its strong yet comfy handles.

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream & Açai Body Power Cream Review

Whether it’s winter or summer or in any season, I’m always on the lookout for a well-scented and well-performing body creams. I’m a big fan of creams that not only moisturizes the skin during cold dry months but also illuminates it during bright sunny days for that glowy and radiant look, not to mention having irresistible scents. But, there’s not a long of body creams or even lotions like that nowadays. I may have found one drugstore brand but I got bored with the scent and the shimmers were too much. So my quest for that ideal body cream went on, that is until I received a sample of Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and Açai Body Power Cream.

I have read amazing reviews about these two creams and I was so excited to try them myself. The first thing I noticed is that these two creams both smell divine, delicious, refreshing and addicting. Their scents are very different from each other yet both are very pleasing to the senses and have very rich textures. They also have very fine shimmers (mica) and are very moisturizing and easily absorbed by the skin. Hmmm, might be the body cream I have been looking for.

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream: pronounced as “Boom Boom” in Brazil, this cheeky-named cream is not only ideal for the bum but also works great for the legs, arms, tummy and basically all over the body. It’s meant to tighten the skin and reduce or prevent cellulite with its active ingredients like; Guaraná (has fives times the caffeine and promotes natural circulation while smoothing skin), Cupuaçu Butter (locks in moisture), Açai (antioxidant) and Coconut Oil (softens and moisturizes the skin). You just have to massage this cream in a circular motion and enjoy the delicious pistachio caramel scent or should I say vanilla ice cream plus the added shimmer. Though the toning or skin tightening effect remains to be seen, this cream feels so good you just can’t resist it.

Açai Body Power Cream: with tiny flecks of peachy Mica for an all over body glow, this one of a kind super moisturizing body cream is loaded with antioxidants like Açai, moisture-locking Cupuaçu Butter and softening Coconut Oil. Almost the same ingredients found in the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream but without the Guaraná, yet this one contain the most potent form of Açai for a resilient and healthy-looking skin. The best thing about this cream is that it gets absorbed by the body easily and is also very lightweight like the Bum Bum Cream. But it doesn’t stop there, the scent is extremely refreshing, flowery-fruity and irresistible to the point that it’s so addicting you couldn’t stop sniffing it. At one point, I thought it smelled like Diptyque Baies Candle, and we all adore that scent, right? I think I may have found my ideal body cream, especially for winter.

Bottom line, even though these two creams don’t have SPF, I highly recommend these Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and Açai Body Power Cream by Sol De Janeiro. I think they’re truly great to have whether you’re frolicking near the beach (just be sure to add Spf), or just hibernating in the cold winter months. You may or may not notice the tightening effect or the cellulite reduction effect of the Bum Bum Cream but you will definitely love it for its super-yummy scent and hydration benefit. As of the Açai Body Power Cream, you know you’re getting the antioxidants for your skin with a breathtaking scent.
