Three body creams by Sol de Janeiro

Spring is finally here, which means temperatures are finally warming up and it’s time to bare a *little* more skin. Winter may have wreaked havoc causing dry, cracked skin, but thankfully a moisturizing body cream can restore hydration levels  — and give your skin a well-deserved treat.

Consider a body cream like your skin’s best friend — it’s a super hydrating emollient that locks in moisture for smooth, soft supple skin. At Sol de Janeiro, all of our luxurious formulas are non-greasy with a luxurious feel. Not sure which body cream is best for you? Checkout this guide to our favorite body creams — including the best ones for you, like our newest launch, Bom Dia Bright™ Cream.


Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Our award winning body cream is not just a cult classic, it delivers results,  too. Dubbed the ‘Ultimate Brazilian Beauty Secret’, this rich, Cheirosa ’62-scented cream combines potent, caffeine-rich Guaraná extract (to smooth and tighten), Cupuaçu Butter (to deeply hydrate), and antioxidant-packed ingredients like Guaraná Extract and Açai Oil. But don’t take our word for it, the evidence is literally in the jar — one tub of Brazilian Bum Bum cream is sold every 26 seconds!  


Bom Dia Bright™ Cream

If you are looking to gently exfoliate while adding hydration, Bom Dia (pronounced Bom J-i-a) Bright™ Cream is your new go-to that tackles bumpy or rough patches. Formulated with a blend of Fruit AHAs, Vitamin C and another vitamin-rich fruit, Cajá, this retexturizing body cream offers a brightening boost like your favorite facial care products. Plus, get ready to fall in love with our newest scent, Cheirosa ’40. It’s an intoxicating yet delicate  blend of black amber plum, warm vanilla woods, fresh jasmine blooms, and a hint of musk.

Coco Cabana Cream

Need an extra hydration boost? This moisture-plush body cream deeply moisturizes even the most dehydrated skin. Our mix of body-loving oils and CocoSugar blend offer up to 72 hours of hydration so you won’t have to worry about dry skin cramping your style. Fragrance-wise, look forward to the rich coconut scent of Cheirosa ’39, a blend of coconut cream notes inspired by the young green coconuts of Brazil.


Brazilian Nude Cream

This lush, fragrance-free lotion is a wonderful soothing option for those with more sensitive skin. Our Brazilian Beauty Blend of Cupuaçu Butter, Açai Oil, and Coconut Oil is dermatologist-tested  Plus, colloidal oatmeal helps soothe, while Brazilian  provides essential nutrients such as vitamins A and C, and essential fatty acids. This calming cream will keep both you —and your skin happy.


The good news is you don’t need to pick just one — build a collection of skin dream creams for every need, and every mood. Your skin will thank you!
