Product: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Nude Cream
Where to Buy: Sol de Janeiro
Apply generously morning, evening, and after showers. While this may seem excessive, it’s not farfetched to ensure your skin is well-moisturized during the dry winter months. Focus on extra dry areas with thin skin, like elbows, knees, and feet.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Nude Cream Thoughts:
This sibling of instant hit Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream contains all the skin-friendly ingredients without risking unsightly flare-ups in sensitive skin. While the cult fave original features similar ingredients, it also comes with a strong pistachio and salted caramel scent that some find overbearing. The brand listened to its scent-sensitive customers and released its first-ever cream for sensitive skin.
The generously sized serving is scent-free and mica-powder free to ensure intense hydration for any skin. Unlike the Bum Bum formula, the Nude Cream comes in a counter-top worthy pump dispenser, ensuring no contaminants ever enter the formula. Among recognizable ingredients is colloidal oatmeal, famous for its soothing properties. Brazilian passionflower is the hero ingredient, however, serving up Vitamins A, C, and healthy skin fatty acids to calm skin irritation.
I applied the rich cream after a shower, concentrating on the legs, which frequently get rough and dry during winter. My feet also need extra TLC in the drier months, so a pump went to moisturizing them. I was surprised at how quickly the formula soaked up! One of my pet peeves is a greasy moisturizer that transfers on my sheets at night. This formula went on smooth and in about 10 minutes I was soft and supper without a hint of greasiness.
While I would’ve appreciated the extra glow in the form of shimmering mica from the previous formula, I understand why it’s not in this cream and I don’t mind it since it’s winter anyway. My only regret is the cream will be sold on Sephora after Christmas, launching on December 26th. For now, you can purchase directly from Sol de Janeiro.
