While promoting her most recent movie, "Work It," Sabrina Carpenter has divulged some of her favorite beauty products to interviewers.
One of her products really caught me by surprise: Sol de Janiero Bum Bum Cream.
This moisturizer is designed to be used all over the body but, of course, your -bum bum- in particular. With the intention of visibly tightening skin and smoothing over bumps, this cream has become an absolute go-to product for Carpenter.
"This may be my favorite thing that I've found ever, possibly," said Sabrina while touring a Sephora with an interviewer. "You're supposed to put it on your butt, but I like to apply it on my neck because it feels like a natural perfume. It smells like heaven. I use it as my perfume, a moisturizer, it's a multitude of things!"
Once I heard about this product, I knew I needed to look into it myself.
I mean, a moisturizer that smells good enough to be used as a perfume essentially? Incredible. I went to the Sol de Janiero website to take a look at the product in more detail, and the findings hold up to Sabrina's review.
In the breakdown of the product, I found that it's the inclusion of guaraná extract (thanks) makes the firming magic happen.
This fruit has five times more caffeine than coffee, which is what does the trick.
The cream also contains Sol de Janiero's Brazilian blend that includes cupuaçu butter, açaí, and coconut oil, which help in smoothing the skin, along with mica to make the skin glow. The scent that Sabrina is oh-so-obsessed with is a pistachio-caramel scent signature to Sol de Janiero and can only be described as "addictive."
There are also over 10,000 five-star reviews, which to me says it's popular with the masses.
Plus, you can order the product in a variety of sizes: purse size, travel size, and full size at $10, $20, and $45 respectively. If you ask me, that's not a bad deal at all!
Between the reviews and Carpenter's beauty hack, I think this is absolutely going to be my next big beauty splurge to treat my dry skin.
