Sample Sunday: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Review

Hey everyone! So I'm back to reviewing products from my sample stash and I was SO excited to try this one out, considering how hyped up it was. This product has made it's way around the beauty community and everyone raves about how good it smells, so I was pretty excited to give it a shot.

This stuff has the most exotic, unique scent I've honestly ever smelled. To be honest, I don't think I could even describe it. It's the most sexy combination of sweet and spicy, you need to smell it for yourself if you haven't.

The cream itself was very light but absolutely provided moisture to my skin which I loved. Not greasy at all, almost whipped in consistency. It also leaves a really nice shimmer all over your skin, so you basically glow like a goddess when the light hits you.

This is definitely not an every day moisturizer (considering firstly the price and the fact that there is shimmer in it), but a great luxury item to have for when you're going out. I'm definitely going to be purchasing a full size of this item (when it's back in stock on the Sephora website!)

HUGE Haul of Skincare Samples!

Those of you who know me know that I love a good free sample. I love buying sample sizes of products before committing to the real thing. So this is something I was VERY excited about. 

Awhile back, Shopper's Drug Mart was having a Fall Beauty Bonus where with a $120 purchase of beauty products, you received a tote bag with a TON of sample sized products, primarily higher end skincare. 

Personally, I like to save up my Optimum points for events like these. 
I haven't gotten around to trying any of these products yet (because God knows, I have enough products to try that I'm covered for a lifetime), but I thought I'd post about what was included in the bag and see if there are any products in particular you'd like me to review first! 

Here's what I got! 
  • Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel (I'm super excited to try this one out!)
  • Benefit Gimme Brow Eyebrow Gel
  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
  • Biotherm Life Plankton Essence
  • Lancome Visionnaire Yeux
  • Dr Roebuck's Pure
  • Philosophy Purity One Step Facial Cleanser
  • J.R Watkins Co. Coconut Milk and Honey Hand Cream
  • Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 One Step Cleanser 


  • Prevage Anti-Aging Daily Serum

  • Korres Wild Rose Brightening 24-hour Moisturizer
  • Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

  • StriVectin Tightening & Sculpting Face Cream
  • RoC Pro-Correct Anti-Wrinkle Rejuvinating Fluid
  • NeoStrata All-In-One Eye Serum (Definitely going to be one of the first items I test out!)
I'm currently testing out some products, so I won't get to these for another little while, but definitely let me know which ones you want to see reviews of! I'm excited to get testing! 

Hope you're all having a great Tuesday!
