I pay a lot of attention to the skin on my face, but not enough to the skin on my butt. I realized early in my forties (when I had infinite time to think about such things), that I had been neglecting my butt complexion. Nothing crazy happened, I just couldn’t remember the last time I gave him some kind of food, which he clearly deserves. While searching for a new butt firming cream, I had some qualifications that I needed to meet.
First of all, it had to be affordable: I didn’t want to buy an expensive bottle of miracle cream and never buy another one again. Compliance is the most important rule when taking a new step in skincare. I knew I wanted to keep in the habit of moisturizing my skin so it stays firm and smooth. Second, it had to work; I knew there had to be some sort of solution that would excite consumers that I just hadn’t figured out yet. And finally, I wanted my peach skin to feel as smooth and soft as the skin on my face…because why not?
After reading many reviews, I decided to give Advanced Clinicals Collagen Skin Rescue Lotion a try. One reviewer wrote: “Don’t bother paying $50 to $150 for moisturizers and anti-aging products. These are the real deal at a fraction of the price.” With so many reviews like this, I decided to give it a try. Also, anything I buy on Amazon is fully returnable, so I thought there was limited risk.
Advanced Clinicals Retinol Body Cream & Collagen Body Lotion Skin Care Set
Perhaps the most famous butt cream on the market is the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream from Sol de Janeiro. I have used this before and the smell alone is enough to make you want to splurge on it. Ingredients like caffeine-rich guarana extract, fast-absorbing cupuaçu butter, and acai oil help give your butt the vitamins, antioxidants, and wake-up needs (hello, caffeine!), so it has become a fan favorite over the years. . But if you’re looking for a duplicate, Advanced Clinicals is the way to go.
Unlike Sol de Janeiro, Advanced Clinicals Collagen Cream is odorless, but you can get two 16-ounce jars for only $23.99 total. One of the bottles is a retinol lotion, which I love to use on my arms and legs to keep my skin tone even and firm things up a bit. Key ingredients like Hydrolyzed Collagen (faster-absorbed broken down collagen), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (an anti-inflammatory), and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (green tea antioxidant) work together to get the job done. I bought my first tub in May of this year and am still using it. I use it on my butt every time I get out of the shower, so that’s a lot of uses over a two year period.
If you don’t want the retinol lotion that comes in the two pack with the collagen lotion, you can use collagen with a jar of collagen cream plus collagen oil that you can use on your face.
Advanced Clinicals Collagen Body Cream Moisturizing Lotion + Collagen Body Oil
About a week after applying this collagen cream and body oil after every shower, I noticed that my butt looked better. The appearance of cellulite and overall sagging was diminishing, but perhaps the most noticeable improvement was that my butt finally felt as smooth as my face. I have literally started rubbing it (yes, my butt) in bed at night, and I am reassured by how soft and supple my skin feels. No, that’s not weird! It’s self love!
Although my 16oz tub still works fine, I will definitely buy this again as soon as I run out. Since it’s durable and affordable, I’m more likely to keep up with the routine, which is what I was looking for all along. Now that I’ve started moisturizing my butt, no one is stopping me. Just wait until June when the world can (hopefully) see her again in all her glory.
