WTF Wednesday: $50 Body Lotion?!

If you've been here awhile, then you know my biggest skin complaint is chronic dryness. I have an exceptionally hard time finding lotion that really works for me: I don't want it to be overly greasy like a slip and slide or so thick I start sweating because my skin can't breathe, but I don't want it to be so lightweight or thin that I feel crusty/dry in an hour.  I have tried so many body lotions and creams from drugstore to high-end but I dislike a majority of them (ie. Bath & Body Works body lotion... that crap has a special place in hell, in my opinion. Sure, they smell great, but they don't work at actually moisturizing your skin).
So naturally when one of my favorite YouTube influencers, Tati Westbrook, repeatedly mentions a body cream she loves, I am intrigued.  Her recommendation? The Sol De Janeiro Brazillian Bum Bum Cream, which I considered purchasing many, many times but I have a hard time swallowing the insane price tag.... it's $45 for 8oz.  That is SO EXPENSIVE.

However, when my very best friend came to me and also said Sol De Janeiro's Brazillian Bum Bum Cream is the best body cream on Earth and smells like unicorns, rainbows, and angels, I knew it was officially time to bite the bullet. So I did... and I have been using it for about 2 weeks now...

Verdict? I hate to say it guys but aside from the intoxicating smell, this stuff is AMAZING! Despite being painfully expensive, it truly works wonder, especially for my dry skin. I am so in love. I intend to buy the body spray as well because I have never smelled something more delicious.  It's warm, sweet (but not sugary), with hint of coconut.  It's ultra-hydrating but not too thick and never greasy.  It is perfect.
