This £3 Primark body scrub is the perfect dupe for this £39 product

Shoppers didn’t waste any time heading to the high street when stores reopened in April. But we were especially happy to see shops with no online services open their doors once more. Yep, we’re talking about Primark in particular.

Since Primark has reopened, the discount retailer has proved it knows just what its customers want. The internet recently went wild for its new comfortable underwear range and viral £3 tanning drops.

Primark has done it again with its latest drop of beauty products, which includes dupes of the cult Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Body Scrub and Cream.

The Sol De Janeiro products are renowned for their summery smell, as well as the ability to leave skin soft and glowing. The rave reviews are impressive, but the price tag means it might not be affordable for everyone. In comes Primark, with a version that will cost you just £3.

Following a similar colour palette to the Sol De Janeiro equivalent, the Primark Body Buff Scrub can be bought in-store in a 125ml tub. The Bum Bum Body Scrub can be bought online in 220g.

But what makes it so great? The scrub promises to ‘leave limbs silky soft (and your ‘Bum Bum’ as smooth as a peach).’ The sugar and salt in the products sloughs away dead cells, leaving skin supple.

Alongside the scrub, Primark also has a dupe of the cult cream on offer for the same price of £3. Sol De Janeiro’s Bum Bum Cream will set you back £44 for a 240ml tub.

Sol De Janeiro’s cream is enhanced with guaraná, a native Amazonian plant that is one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet, which makes it perfect for stimulating circulation.

The Bum Bum Cream saw a 96 per cent increase in sales on Space NK last year, so it’s fair to say fans will be happy to know they can find an equivalent that’s £41 cheaper.
