Thanks for visiting With the Specs, my affordable style blog based in Omaha, Nebraska.

I will never recommend products that I don’t love.
Listen up. I’m not normally one to post a review of a single product because I don’t usually have enough to say about one thing to make it worth putting the work in. Mostly, these posts would read something like, “Yeah it was good. The box was cool. I guess. And I felt good after using it, so…” Or, “Yeah it was kind of garbage. I guess.” But here we are.
Sometimes I work with a blogger company called Influenster, and they’ll send me a free product to test out. I’ll post what I think about it on Instagram and Facebook, and that’s sort of the end of it. BUT. Recently, they sent me Sol de Janeiro's Brazilian Bod Buff, and I had to share because I’m sort of in love with it. For the record, Influenster isn’t making me posting this - I just think it’s a really good product that you should know about.
Apparently I live under a rock, because I’ve never heard of Sol de Janeiro, and everyone else on the planet has. They have really great skincare products. I’ve heard a TON of recommendations for their Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. I’ve never tried it, but that seems to be the claim to fame everyone keeps talking about.
The Brazilian Bod Buff is a new product, and holy moly, it’s the best exfoliant I’ve ever used. My skin gets so dry this time of year, and I get really itchy no matter what I do. After using this stuff, my skin was insanely soft, and I felt so good for a couple of days. It was such an unexpected delight! Like - I cannot sing the praises of this product loud enough. That may sound like overkill, but you don’t know what I go through in the winters.
The only downside of this product is that it’s a little bit messy. It says you can use it as a mask on dry skin, but frankly, it seems like too big of a mess for me to have it on around the house. I use it in the shower, usually right before shaving, and you can definitely tell. There’s a lot of yellow and blue crystals everywhere.
For me at least, the price point also makes it a bit of a “treat yoself” product. It’s $25, which is more than I would normally spend for a non-essential product like this. But goodness. I will probably keep buying it because it’s helped solve one of my most annoying skin problems.
If you’re interested in trying it out for yourself, you can find it from Sephora here. I’d love to know what you think!
Any great skincare products I should try? Let me know in the comments. And as always, don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram to stay in the know on great (affordable) products, sustainability tips (I know this post definitely isn’t one of those - sorry), and sales.
Until next time!
