I love travel kits for so many different reasons and Spring is the time when a lot of them come out to play. I think it is to get everyone ready for summer travels, possibly spring break as well. This year there were two that caught my eyes, mostly because I was already on the site ordering from them anyway. This Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Jet Set kit is the second travel kit that caught my eye and Quite honestly i love everything about it.
While they do have several different travel kits, and indeed you can go on to their build your own travel set and select minis of their products if you want to try them out, I went for this Bum Bum scented trio.
I love the original Bum Bum cream from Sol de Janeiro. To me it smells like buttered popcorn. which is a scent that I will not complain about. However it is also a little more than just body lotion. while it is talked about for tightening the skin on your Bum so that it looks fabulous in a swimsuit, Personally I have found it is helpful on my stomach area.
As I have started to loose weight, I get dimples and stretch marks and all sorts of things I am not too happy with. While I am sure it helps your rear end look great, It’s skin tightening properties are really helpful as I start to slim down. Basically the tightening action helps me out in that department.
Plus it smells like buttered popcorn.
I actually went on the website to pick up another container of this Bum Bum Cream and then I realized that every time I am on the site, I pick up the same Bum Bum Cream. So I decided to branch out and I used the travel kit to do it. The travel kit contains a 50mL container of the Original Bum Bum Cream.
It also contains a travel sized bottle of the body wash in the same Bum Bum scent. I have been wanting to try out the body wash for a while. Mostly because I just really like the scent of the cream and the thought of using it in the shower is just a pleasant one to contemplate. So I am thrilled I get to try that out;.
The third Item in the travel set is a Perfume Mist. It is in the Brazilian Crush Cherirosa #62 which is described as a pistachio and salted caramel. It is a 30 mL sized spray which is more than enough for me to get a feel for the spray. I am curious as to how it will perform. It looks like a body mist, but is described as perfume. So That will be a fun product to play around with. And I love both pistachios and salted caramel so I am eagerly anticipating trying it out.
These three items come inside a clear plastic travel case and I must admit I am kind of excited about it. Although I should probably admit that i will not be using it as a travel case. These little plastic bags are amazing for summer work in the garden. I will take the paper insert out and then put a little bit of ice and a little but of water inside. I will then add an old washcloth and take the bag into the garden. Periodically as I work, I will dip into the plastic bag and pull out the damp and shipped washcloth.
It is an amazing trick and I have to admit I end up doing this with all of the little plastic bags like this. we always have several going each year. I use them when i garden and my babydoll uses it when he mows the yard. Growing up my mom and grandma both used plastic containers or even zip top bags. I find the clear plastic travel bags like this god because they have a little stability so they will sit square and not just deflate. It makes them easier to use. And if you are working in the sun it is really a great way to cool down quickly and make sure you keep heat sickness at bay.
I know that is kind of a secondary use for the bag but I thought I’d share.
It is mostly about the products, but that is just a little side benefit. With each order there is a sample you can pick out and I chose a sample of the Beija flor Elasti-cream. It has a vegan alternative to retinol mixed in which I want to give a go. I wanted to try out the cream but I am always leery of florals. So a sample is perfect for me to try without running the risk of wasted product
As always I love travel kits because it allows me the chance to try products I might not necessarily pick up from a brand. In this case I ended up with one product I knew I loved and two from the same line that I have been curious about for a while but never got around to trying out. Now I get to try them out, AND pack them for my trip this weekend. Kind of a win win for me.
