You may have heard of this stuff before – it’s one of the most popular items at Sephora right now. Mostly known for its smell, this cream claims to give you “irresistible, touch-me skin” and “perfect Brazilian glow, as the formula helps your body look and feel its smoothest and tightest”. Let’s see if it lives up to these claims!
As I mentioned earlier, this cream is mostly known for its amazing smell. And I have to tell you guys, it really is amazing. I cannot get enough of this smell. When you apply it, the scent is strong that it’s like you’re wearing a perfume. In fact, if you’re going to put this on before you go out, I wouldn’t recommend putting a perfume on over it as the smells might clash. It’s coconut-y and very beachy. Next time you’re in Sephora, give it a whiff and it may just win you over!
I’ve been using this cream nightly for about 4 weeks and have to say I haven’t noticed a big difference in the firmness or elasticity of my bum bum. As much as I love applying it, it doesn’t seem to have any lasting effects in terms of smoothing or tightening.
Despite not having any firming or tightening effects for me, I love the creaminess of this. It’s definitely very moisturizing and will keep your skin soft and supple. As someone with dry skin, it takes a lot for a moisturizer to impress me, and this did the trick.
Is It Worth It?
Honestly, it depends. If you’re looking for a firming cream, I’d say no. A big jar of this baby is $45 US, and for that price, I feel like it should be more effective. But if you’re looking to splurge on a luxurious moisturizing cream with an amazing smell, I’d recommend it for sure. They have a smaller size prized at $20 US which won’t last you as long, but you can still test it out to see if you like it before splurging on the big whopper. Personally, I won’t be repurchasing it any time soon as there are plenty of cheaper moisturizers out there. If I were concerned about tightening, I’d probably look for something more effective. That being said, I don’t regret the purchase at all. It’s a great-smelling product that’s nice to put on before going out in the summer. So maybe give the smaller jar a try if you’re a cream-lover. The scent alone may just win you over!
