SOL babes get what SOL babes want!



How is the new Coco Cabana Cream better than the first Coco Cabana Cream?

We’ve tweaked the fragrance to bring notes of young green coconuts we love in Brazil, right on top.That means we now have a more delicious coconut experience –and our scent is more irresistible than ever.

We also adjusted our formula to address the tingling sensation some users experienced, along with concerns some had about stickiness.

Our Coco Cabana Cream is now smoother than ever and absorbs beautifully.


How did you eliminate the “tingling sensation”?

A tingling sensation was reported by some users so we looked into this immediately. We found that the tingling sensation could be due to the fragrance, so we worked with our fragrance house to rebalance our fragrance notes.


Is the new Coco Cabana Cream still an oil-in-water formula?

It is! Our Coco Cabana Cream is made with plush body-loving oils that melt right into your skin, yet it feels light and luscious. It’s creamy, pampering, and moisture-plush so it smooths right on your skin – and absorbs easily, too. It feels amazing.


What did you do to make the cream less sticky?

We didn’t change our formula – or our amazing moisture benefits – but we did rebalance some of our ingredients to create a smoother experience when you apply Coco Cabana Cream.

You’ll love how it feels on your skin and how well it absorbs now.


I experienced a burning sensation when I tried Coco Cabana Cream before. How can I be sure it won’t happen again?

We found that any tingling sensation could be due to the fragrance so we immediately rebalanced our fragrance notes to address that issue.

We also removed the most common allergens from our formula and decided to go above and beyond industry standards by testing our formula on twice as many users as before.

We really took your concerns seriously and feel good about our updated formula.

Most importantly, we want YOU to feel good about Coco Cabana. We hope you try – and love our new Coco Cabana Cream.


My skin is sort of sensitive to fragrance. Since you dialed up on the coconut note, does this mean that the cream now has a high level of fragrance?

We wanted to heighten the deliciousness of our coconut scent but we did that by just tweaking the fragrance a little and recalibrating our fragrance notes. We did not make our fragrance stronger.


Have you added more coconuts to the scent or formula?

We tweaked our scent for an even more delicious coconut fragrance – but we just recalibrated our notes. We did not add more coconut fragrance or oil.


Why did the first Coco Cabana fragrance have a buttery quality?

Our original fragrance was blended with a particular note that had a buttery quality that for some, could even smell a little like popcorn. We’ve removed that note and have added notes of tropical orchid and creamy sandalwood for heightened sophistication.


What are the fragrance notes in the new Coco Cabana Cream - top, mid and base? 

Our Coconut fragrance is complex, sophisticated and unexpected in the best way. Our top note of coconut cream is derived from young green coconuts – like the ones we love to drink in Brazil. Here are all our notes –

Top: Coconut Cream

Mid: Warm Vanilla, Tropical Orchid

Dry: Creamy Sandalwood, Toasted Praline


Already a Coco lover?

Thank you for checking out our new Coco Cabana Cream. We think you’ll love this one even more than the first!

New to Coco Cabana Cream all together?

Welcome! We hope you love the latest cream to our range of Brazilian beauty secrets!

Wasn’t a fan of the first Coco Cabana Cream? 

We hope you’ll give new Coco Cabana Cream a try! We heard your feedback and addressed your concerns. We always want to give you the absolute best in body love. Coco Cabana Cream is our moisturizing body cream, for bouncy, moisture-plush skin.

In Brazil, we love our skin incredibly soft and irresistibly touchable – always. Loving and treating our bodies just comes naturally, and this moisture-bursting cream pampers our skin deeply. Our Coco Cabana Cream is immersed in plush hydration to treat and transform even the driest, most dehydrated skin so that it’s amazingly smooth and deeply moisturized 

Our Coco Cabana Cream is wrapped in body-loving oils and whipped with our CocoSugar Blend to attract up to 72 hours of hydration so moisture benefits are both luscious and lasting. Benefits just get better and better with continued pampering.  

Scented with our Cheirosa ’39 fragrance – our deliciously complex coconut scent with Brazilian-inspired notes of coconut cream from young green coconuts, tropical orchid and toasted praline.


Beijos, SOL babes!

I absolutely loved the old coco Cabana formula, I received so many compliments on it. Every time I wore it I couldn’t stop smelling my skin it was heavenly. I just recently ran out of my old jar and was ready to buy a replacement when I received a mini coco cabana in my boxy charm this month. I was excited and opened it up to be completely disappointed. The new sent is so extremely different it should not even have the same name. It is false advertisement to put the same name on a completely different product. I am very saddened by this change. Please consider putting the old formula up on the site, I absolutely know I can not be alone in this. If there is any left anywhere I would love to know, I need as much as I can get before it is long gone.

I absolutely hated the original scent, and have recently tried the new one. I LOVE IT! It does feel creamier (am I crazy?), and I noticed the difference right away. I’m glad I gave it another try. Thank you 🙂

Please bring back the original coco cabana 😭

I received this in my boxycharm. It smelled really good and seemed really soft so I put it on my face and IT BURNS. my face is on fire as I type this. It feels and smells amazing but it’s painful. I’m disappointed.

I didn’t know the scent was reformulated and I’m so disappointed. I loved the original scent. This one smells weird, not really like coconut, just not good. Sadly I will not repurchase this. Is there anywhere I can get the original scent? If so, how can I be sure it’s before the reformulation? I’m hoping it ends up at tj maxx and I can buy many backups. So disappointed ☹️

I really preferred the original scent and was really disappointed when I purchased the new formula. Can you please bring back the original? I was such a fan and received so many compliments whenever I wore it!

I was so incredibly disappointed when I opened my jar of the 240ml coco cabana cream and it smelled like funky coconut body odor. New reformulation, huh? I dont get to smell delicious and buttery now. Thought I had found my forever scent but now I have to keep looking :(

I received this in my ipsy bag not to long ago and the burning everyone is talking about is only right after a shower.. I take my shower at night so if I put it on in the morning it does not burn, but right after my shower when my pores are open my face is on fire for about a minute or 2 and then calms down. However my skin feels absolutely amazing when I put it on immediately after the shower and the fire feeling is over… lol… I will say this smells wonderful and recommend putting it on after shower and putting up with the burning sensation because it hydrates so much more than applying later..

Hi there, just went to the store and bought my third bottle of Coco Cabana, it smells completely different to the original one and to be honest, I’m VERY DISAPPOINTED and SAD at the same time. I really loved the scent of the original one. Please bring back the original one, or at least offer 2 options for the old formula and the new formula. I’m sure a lot of us customers are wanting the old formula back!!! Please consider!


February 18, 2020

I am very disappointed about the new formulation. I absolutely LOVE the original scent. I gave away my bottle to a friend because she loved it so much, thinking that I could purchase another one. It was such a let down that I came to store and found it was reformulated. :( Could you please direct me and many others to where I can purchase the old scent? Is it possible that you could release the original formula under a different name so that we have a choice?

I dont have sensitive skin and I’m still experiencing tingling for the first minute after application. I got mine via ipsy and love the smell and the way my face feels instantly hydrated

I ABSOLUTELY Love this lotion! So HAPPY to be apart of your team!!

Very sad about the change. The whole point of something Coco Cabana is about the coconut, about a natural smell. The fragrance that has been added is exactly that, fragrance. It changed something that went from not only my favorite product and a smell that anybody around me immediately asked what that is and immediately bought it, to now just another flowery fragrance on the market.
It’s also disappointing that something so natural smelling changed and for somebody that has allergies and asthma is immediately a no go.
As many of my friends have fallen in love with this, the multiple large Coco Cabana i bought for Christmas gifts are now nothing like the product they fell in love with. Understandable, but disappointing to now be more floral than coconut.

My favorite smell is bumbum but my kids love the Coco smell


November 12, 2019

I loved the original Coco Cabana scent! I have very dry, sensitive skin and environmental allergies so am careful trying new products. Usually powerful scents are not user friendly for me, but, oh my goodness, that Coco was a deliciously sensual experience to smooth on my skin with it’s natural smell! I was ecstatic! I even put it on subscription, which I NEVER have done with any product before. Then…I received the new scent. 😒 So disappointed! This smell is a definite deal breaker! I miss the luscious buttery coconut scent and the sandalwood irritates my senses. My husband doesn’t care for it either, said “it diesnt smell as good as the other one”. So sad for someone like me that hasn’t previously been able to use scented products. It’s too bad the majority of responders to the survey were the ones that wanted the scent to change, while the majority of happy campers were silent. I wish I’d known about the survey, not that one person’s comments can make a big difference but at least I could’ve posted how much I loved the original.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE ORIGINAL COCO CABANA! I do not like the new formula with the tropical orchid scent added. Is there any of old stock available for those of us that love the original COCO CABANA? Please reply as I am a devoted Coco Cabana lover! I first tried the Bum Bum cream. There is something in the Bum Bum blend that made me break out in hives everywhere I applied the cream. I did however, love the scent. Thank you in advance!!

Love the scent and the cream! It’s my go-to!

So glad that I’m not the only person that thought it smelled like butter! I was beginning to think I was crazy because every time I used it I felt like I was walking around smelling like a huge bucket of movie theater buttered popcorn! Not that that was a bad thing :-) but I’m anxious to try the new formula!


October 03, 2019

Absolutely LOVE that the company is so great about customer feedback! Keep on making great stuff and we’ll keep on buying!!
