Last year, I got hooked on Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (BBBC). I have tubs of it all over my house. It’s my favorite scented lotion (for the record, my favorite unscented lotion is Cerave moisturizing cream). However, the 240 mL tub comes in at the steep price of $45. In my opinion, it’s worth it, but I am always down to try a budget-friendly alternative.
I heard there was a good dupe from Target available, the OGX Coconut Miracle Oil body lotion, and naturally I ordered some immediately.
A few things about Sol de Janeiro’s BBBC. The scent is incredible and long lasting. It’s a perfect mix of pistachio, almond, and vanilla, and the scent literally lasts all day without being overpowering. Also, the BBBC single-handedly faded the stretch marks I had from being pregnant with Theo. The cream is infused with Guarana extract, which is reported to help visibly lift and firm your skin.
I was pumped to try the OGX Coconut Miracle Oil lotion, but I don’t think I would go as far to say as it stands up as a dupe. It smells great, but the scent is not long lasting – and it smells similar to BBBC, but not the same. I only smell coconut and vanilla. It also doesn’t have the same lifting and firming properties. But at $6.99 for a huge bottle (19.5 oz, but my bottle says 50% free and I got almost a 30 Oz bottle!)
Bottom line: will I use the OGX Miracle Oil lotion? Definitely. It smells great and is a good budget friendly option, if you like a coconut scent. Will it replace Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, for me? Definitely not. Coconut has always been my favorite lotion scent (anyone remember Exotic Coconut from Bath and Body Works?!), so I will definitely get some use out of this lotion.
