Since it’s been in the 90’s in Kansas City for the past couple of weeks, I have been getting ready for summer beauty-wise. I have been thinking up summer makeup looks and other beauty products that I love during the hotter months. I haven’t started self-tanning yet, so when I received these goodies from Sol de Janeiro, I thought “these will help me glow without the mess of sunless tanning!”
I received (for my honest review) the new Glow Oils in Copacabana Bronze and Ipanema Sunset and my favorite lip balm, the Brazilian Kiss lip butter.
Sol de Janeiro has just released two Glow Oils ($35 USD). Copacabana Bronze has a subtle bronze tint with golden shimmer to warm and illuminate the skin. It is infused with the signature Cheirosa ‘62 Bum Bum Cream fragrance, leaving skin deliciously scented with notes of pistachio and salted caramel.
I like this oil a lot! The bronze color gives my skin a sun-kissed glow. It’s so pretty and shimmery, not glittery. It also deepens my skin tone a bit so I don’t look as pale. It is a little sticky and doesn’t sink into my skin unless I use a small amount and rub it in really well. Also, the bottle doesn’t have a pump and I have to pour it in my hand.
Ipanema Sunset has a translucent champagne shimmer to create a romantic sunset radiance. It is infused with the new tropical dream Cheirosa ‘77 fragrance, with romantic notes of pomelo, wild fig, and Brazilian gardenia.
This give my skin a light shimmer and a super pretty glow. It also looks so hydrated. This oil sinks into my skin better than the bronze oil and doesn’t leave it sticky.
Both oils have different scents. The bronze oil has the same fragrance as Sol’s Bum Bum cream. It’s sweet and spicy, but a little too strong for me. I like the Sunset oil’s scent a little better. If you don’t like strong fragranced oils, these probably aren’t for you.
Brazilian Kiss Cupuaçu Lip Butter ($18 USD) nourishes lips for a soft, supple feel. Powered by a blend of extraordinarily nourishing cupuaçu butter, antioxidant powerhouse açaí, and super-conditioning coconut oil, it leaves lips traced with a Brazilian caramel scent.
I tried this for the first time last year. It’s so amazing! It has a caramel and nutty scent which is so warm and yummy. And it’s creamy and hydrating.
