Dealer Joe’s Brazil Nut Physique Scrub ($5.99) is a brand new sugar physique scrub that was launched to go with the Brazil Nut Physique Butter that’s been in comparison with Sol de Janeiro’s Bum Bum Cream. Brazil Nut Physique Butter was launched final yr and was unattainable to search out because it immediately grew to become a viral dupe sensation of the beloved, cult-favorite Bum Bum Cream with its tropical, gourmand scent.
It solely made sense for Dealer Joe’s to money in on the success of the physique butter and do a physique scrub as nicely. Each merchandise can be found for a restricted run this Summer season so hurry and I actually imply hurry to your native retailer if you need the scrub as in my space they began placing them out final night time and there have been solely two on the cabinets I managed to seize. I do know within the OC they have been limiting purchases on each the scrub and physique butter at two per individual. And I respect and recognize that as a result of too many individuals are shopping for all of it up and continuing to promote it for $15 and upwards on E-bay, Amazon, Mercari, and so forth….! We now have no such limits in place right here as of but however when you’re on the West Coast you may even see them in place!
The scrub is available in an 8 oztube for $5.99 in comparison with Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Physique Scrub which is $42 at 7.8 oz. It has an hooked up lid which you’ll be able to flip as much as get entry to the scrub. I can’t stress how a lot I like this packaging. The physique butter additionally shares an identical lid. While you’re within the bathe generally it’s a ache to unscrew a giant outdated tub of scrub! It’s good simply having the ability to flip it up for entry. As for the physique butter, it’s good the lid is hooked up as I’m not misplacing it or maybe my fingers are moist, and unscrewing it may be a chore. The hooked up lid is def a pleasant contact and a giant enchancment over the bulkier lids that Sol de Janiero makes use of which generally aren’t at all times simple to screw again on accurately.

As you may see above the 2 scrubs have very comparable elements however Bum Bum Physique Scrub does go heavier on some oils. It’s additionally made up of crushed cupuaçu seeds and sugar crystals the place as Dealer Joe’s model does have cupuaçu seed extract versus Bum Bum Physique Scrub which incorporates cupuaçu seed powder.
So far as texture goes I believe the Sol de Janiero components is slightly harsher and extra refined the place as Dealer Joe’s is a bit grittier and harsher. I didn’t thoughts a lot as a result of I’ve drier pores and skin so a harsher scrub is def one I take pleasure in. It’s a bit oily as you therapeutic massage it in however doesn’t include a bunch of oil inside the container as some scrubs are recognized for (Philosophy I’m speaking to you and your liquid-y scrubs). Water does are likely to bead off my pores and skin after I rinse this off in order that’s testimony to it having a great deal of pores and skin softening oils in it. It certain leaves my pores and skin tremendous mushy and easy. I like utilizing it on the backs of my heals the place I are likely to get dry pores and skin in addition to elbows and knees! My elbows are SUPER easy after utilizing this!
And naturally, I’m certain the scent is what you wish to hear about probably the most! Sorry, however it isn’t fairly the dupe I’d need for Bum Bum Cream. Don’t kill me. Everybody is absolutely raving about it onerous and making it seem to be the proper dupe however it’s def lacking some heat the unique has. I believe Sol de Janeiro perfected the scent with an ideal mix of Salted Caramel, Pistachio, and Vanilla. I’m unsure what it’s however Dealer Joe’s scent appears fainter. It’s very, very, very comparable however it lacks the complexity, depth, heat, and power of the unique. Is it a dupe? I’d say sure however not a precise spot-on duplication of the unique! I’ll say it does have good endurance on pores and skin. In the event you use the scrub with the physique butter it’ll go away you smelling beautiful and tropical for a couple of hours. Yum! I do assume Sol de Janeiro’s model is a bit stronger although. I used to be considering maybe the explanation I don’t really feel it’s a precise dupe is that Dealer Joe’s lacks the vanilla not. However in all honesty, I nonetheless give TJ’s a 5 our 5 for this! It’s fantastic stuff as is the physique butter. Very yummy, very tropical, and excellent for Summer season.
Dealer Joe’s Brazil Nut Physique Scrub is a win! They’ve performed it once more and offered us stable and extra cheap model of a product that may be fairly darn pricey. I simply want it wasn’t seasonal.
I ponder if subsequent yr they’ll go loopy and do a physique mist…..!
That may be wild.
