Bikini season is here, people!
And even if we've been fine-tuning our diets and ramping up our workouts, there's only so much that these healthier modifications can do to get rid of the bumps and dimples on our thighs.
No matter how lean or muscular we are, cellulite is a pain point for many -- nearly 90 percent of women report having it. It doesn't speak to our diets, and especially during summertime, can take a big hit on our body image. But it seems that we may have found the perfect seasonal solution -- and no, it doesn't involve going under the knife or a trip to the bank.
That's probably why Sol de Janeiro's Brazilian Bum Bum Cream keeps selling out in minutes, and often racks up a waitlist of hundreds of people. The $45 moisturizer doesn't advertise about fighting cellulite, but it's firming and fast-absorbing properties have helped hundreds of thousands of customers (no exaggeration!) reduce it. The secret ingredient? Guaraná, a native Amazonian plant that "contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet."
Said one customer, "Usually I am skeptical about claims made regarding cellulite reduction, but I am blown away by this cream!" It "does everything it promised and more, and the kicker...I've only been using it for 2 weeks! I keep staring at my legs wondering what happened."
"The cellulite on my inner thighs and weird bra bulge area (I use this on my whole body) is practically vanished! I didn't even know it was a cellulite cream," wrote another.
As if its cellulite fighting property wasn't enough, people are "hooked" to its smell: a tropical mix with notes of pistachio and salted caramel.
Asserted one buyer, "Everywhere I go, people stop and ask me what I use for perfume or tell me I smell so good. Even hours after I have put it on."
"After just ONE use, I'm totally hooked. It smells so amazing. Edible honestly," explained another.
Yep, we're sold.
