    Sol de Janeiro Body Cream Cheat Sheet

    November 22, 2019

    dabs of different Sol de Janeiro creams

     How do you know which body care products are best for you?

    We’re here to help! Here’s a cheat sheet to help you find your perfect match based on your preferences in fragrance, textures, and unique benefits.


    Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

    Superpower: Caffeine is well known in the skincare world to help with the appearance of firmer, tighter skin (hence, the caffeine craze we’ve seen in eye creams). Brazilian Bum Bum Cream contains guaraná extract, which is a Brazilian fruit that contains 5x the amount of caffeine than coffee. Gives the appearance of firmer, smoother thighs and booty, and instantly peps up dull, lackluster skin.

    Fragrance: Warm and delicious. Notes of salted caramel and pistachio so deliciously complex that strangers on the street won’t be able to help but disrupt your double-Airpodded-self to say, “So sorry to bother you, but WHAT is your scented body lotion?"

    It’s Bum Bum, baby.

    My first-reach for: Vacation. Date night. A mandatory ritual for the first day of daylight savings when it gets dark at 4pm. (Summer-withdrawal is TOO REAL. A body cream that will moisturize AND provide emotional support? I’ll take 12, please).

    Brazilian Bum Bum Cream scented body cream


    Coco Cabana Cream

    Superpower: Combatting dry, scaly, and ashy winter skin and providing 72 hours of hydration with ingredients like nourishing coconut oil and fermented sugar, which locks in moisture. Don’t let the lack of shimmer fool you - you’ll get an instant hydration boost.

    Fragrance: Delectable and sophisticated. It has notes of young green coconut cream, tropical orchid, and toasted praline - making the fragrance closer to authentic coconut rather than the one you grew up with during your tweenage years.

    My first-reach for: Ski trip. #SelfCareSolDay. Cozy movie night. (Move over, Netflix & Chill. It’s time for Hulu & Hydrate).

    Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream - coconut body moisture cream


    Açaí Body Power Cream

    Superpower: Best for acting as a forcefield against environmental stressors and pollution. The antioxidants found in the superfood açaí fight off free radicals (daily pollution). 

    The peachy mica provides an instant glow, making it look like you just walked your #flawless self out of a Vinyasa yoga class.

    Fragrance: Crisp & clean. This fresh floral fragrance transports you to the middle of a lush, Brazilian rainforest.

    My first reach for: Days in the city (aka a bubble of car exhaust, germs, and random unidentified floaters?). Stressful days when I’m in need of some peaceful aromatherapy.

    Açaí Body Power Cream - antioxidant cream



    Brazilian Nude Cream

    Superpower: The ultimate reset-button. Unscented and shimmer-free, this cream’s sole focus is to moisturize and comfort your skin with soothing ingredients like Brazilian Passionflower and Colloidal Oatmeal.

    This is a great way to give extra attention to mildly irritated or sensitive skin.

    My first reach for: Low-key Saturdays. Dressing up the bathroom before having guests (I mean have you SEEN this gorgeous packaging?). Every day in January.

    Brazilian Nude Cream - unscented sensitive skin moisturizer

    Just like multi-masking, we’d like to introduce you to multi-moisturizing.

    Here's an example of my current regimen:

    Sol-rise (daytime):

    - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream on torso, tummy, and of course- my bum bum!

    - Coco Cabana Cream on arms, legs (I get really dry shins in the winter), and hands (don’t forget the cuticles).


    Sol-set (nighttime):

    - Brazilian Nude on my upper arms and thighs for my KP (keratosis pilaris) - it has been a SAVIOR.

    - Açaí Body Power Cream everywhere else. (Ideally, I’d be falling asleep in a Brazilian oasis every night, but this is as close as I’ll get for now).

    Tell us: What’s your custom routine (current or aspiring)? Share it with us in the comments section below.

    I’m obsessed. I had the travel sized set and had to upgrade to the full size. It truly smells heavenly and genuinely make me happy because I smell like summer time or a tropical vacation!

    Even though CC is my favorite, I love all of the SDJ creams. And I would use any one of them as a night time body moisturizer because I definitely need a body moisturizer after my showers at night. ❤

    The bum bum cream is actually more moisturizing for me than the coco cabana cream. I keep buying it over and over!!!!!

    I use Coco Cabana all over my winter dry skin. Its the most effective hydrating cream I have EVER used and I have tried sooooo many different creams on my super dry leg and arm skin in these harsh winters. This is my new " can’t live without" product!

    The Bum Bum Cream is my favorite lotion I’ve ever owed. It smells like heaven and makes my skin so so soft.
    I would recommend it 100%. Just for starters I would probably want to buy the smaller $20 one first just to check if you really love it and then buy the bigger size! But do what ever you’d like and once again it’s amazing!

    I’m so addicted to the Bum Bum cream. The smell is amazing. I recently tried the coco cabana which I also love. I can’t wait to try the others.

    BumBum is the absolute best!
    I have psoriasis and this is the best thing I have found to combat dry flakey skin. Other moisturizers stop working within a couple hours. I can apply BumBum and I have 24+ hours of hydrated silky soft skin. I have even replaced my facial moisturizer with BumBum. All day moisture with out being greasy. And the smell is just a bonus! Smells like summer day at the beach.

    I have super dry skin. I put the bum bum cream everywhere besides my face. I then spray my body and hair with the mist and get dressed and then spray my hair. I’m waiting for the other 2 different ones to come for my to try. I’ve always been about the smell of something as to if I’d use it…I have the 240ml on my nightstand. I reapply regularly. My hands are looking YOUNGER! I fall asleep with my hands under my chin so I smell it all night. It makes me so happy and peaceful and I sleep so well because of it!


    December 02, 2019

    I personally love the bum bum cream. It is my favorite!!
