Oh yes, you know I was going to lean into both of my new travel kits for my recent trip. I simply could not resist this Brazilian 4 Play Body Wash from Sol de Janeiro. It was picked up as part of my Bum Bum Jet set travel kit. And again I picked it up because I love the Bum Bum cream but have the tendency to only pick up the bum bum cream when I visit the site. So I thought this would break me out of my standard practice and get me trying a few new things.
And oh am I glad I did.
This Brazilian 4 Play is a creamy body wash that smells almost identical to the Bum Bum Cream. Since it’s from the same line, i shouldn’t be surprised, but I thought it would seem a little more soapy. It doesn’t it smells like the cream.
This body wash foams luxuriously and gives a really good clean. It is also very moisturizing. I know I sound a bit surprised by that as well, but here is the thing. When I try out moisturizing body washes a lot of the time i don’t feel clean. I instead feel as though i have a slight film on me that isn’t really clean.
In fact I usually tend to avoid moisturizing body washes for just that reason. I would rather my body wash leave me feeling clean and then post shower reach for a body lotion than to have my body wash moisturize me and leave me feeling like I just didn’t get clean.
This body wash from Sol de Janerio rinsed away clean, yet when I got out of the shower, I did not want to put on body lotion. My skin didn;t feel like it needed it. The only think I can imagine is that whatever softening agents the body wash uses, either soaked in during the shower or did their job and rinsed off. My skin felt smooth, clean and hydrated without any residue.
I was very impressed.
The scent is pretty strong though so make sure it is a scent you enjoy, because it will be with you a while. I showered at night with this body wash. Dried off, let my hair dry, read for a bit and went to bed. the next morning I could still smell it on my skin. As I got moving that day it faded. However the scent longevity is something to take into account. It is a skin hugging sent so you are not going to walk into a room and people are going to smell it. They would have to be well within your personal space bubble. Uncomfortably far in.
But I could smell it on my skin.
I happen to love the scent so it didn’t bother me, but it is something to note.
For me this is a win. I love the warm scent of the Brazilian 4 Play Body wash and I loved the way it made my skin feel. I suspect when I go back to purchase a larger size of the Bum Bum Cream, a full sized version of this will be joining it in the cart.
