I'm Obsessed with Sol de Janeiro Body Products!

In October I found a sample of the cult favorite Brazilian Bum Bum Cream by Sol de Janeiro. Pleased with the sample, I went ahead and bought a holiday kit during Sephora's sale. Then I bought another, and another. That is how my obsession with Sol de Janeiro products began. Read on to hear my thoughts and find out why I'm hooked!

I've seen the yellow jars of the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream in Sephora for years. For whatever reason, I never actually tried it in store and didn't pay much attention. I WAS SO MISSING OUT.  When the sample came into my hands, I gave it a try and it was pretty much love at first sniff. The scent alone (more on that in a minute) was reason enough for me to buy a jar of the cream. But when I realized the performance was equally as amazing as the scent!? ::Insert Holy Grail Status Here::

Sol de Janeiro is a brand inspired by Brazilians' love, care and confidence for their bodies, infusing highly beneficial natural ingredients into their formulas. Per Sol de Janeiro's website, "We‘ve captured the spirit and beauty secrets of Brazil in a regimen of the finest quality products. All infused with nutrient-rich ingredients of the Amazon. Take in the luxurious feel, delicious scents, and transformative properties of Brazilian beauty care—and come join the party!"

Their Signature Scent
Sol de Janeiro describes their signature scent as a "caramel pistachio" It is addictive, delicious and yummy. A warm gourmand that isn't super sweet, but bright, energetic and unlike anything else I've smelled before.I simply can't get enough of it!

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
 Them: "Our award-winning, cult favorite Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is a luxurious all-over body cream that absorbs quickly to help visibly tighten the appearance of skin. Infused with all-powerful caffeine-rich Guaraná extract and a cocktail of Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí Oil, and Coconut Oil, this fast-absorbing cream with our addictive Pistachio and Salted Caramel fragrance will bring out your most radiant skin ever. Try it and see what the “Bum Bum” effect is all about."

Me: I originally got this for the scent but the performance of this cream is truly incredible. It is very moisturizing, yet my skin aborbs it instantly. I'm left with silky skin with no greasy, heavy, or stick feel. Consistent use has shown my skin is looking firmer and body is just looking better overall. That makes me happy. I use this neck to ankle, not just on my "bum bum". I've tried many firming creams with failed hopes in my life and I'm happy to say I can see and feel a difference with this one.

Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist
 Them: "Brazilian Babe Rule #1: always smell cheirosa (irresistible). Inspired by the addictive scent of our Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist is intoxicating and can be used on body, hair, and lingerie. Sunny yet seductive, the warm scent is bursting with enticing layers of Pistachio and Salted Caramel to keep you cheirosa from sunrise 'til sunset."

Me: I'm going through my bottle of this mist way too quickly because I spray it on everything and anything I can! I just can't get enough of it. For a fragrance mist, the scent lingers for a surprisingly long amount of time. We're in the middle of cold, gloomy, dark Winter here in NYC so this scent helps temporarily transport me to some place a bit warmer.

Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel
Them: "Brazilian Babe skin starts in the shower. Our intoxicatingly-scented shower cream-gel deeply cleanses and hydrates, leaving all skin types soft, irresistibly silky, and ready 4 play. The ultra-gentle formula foams into a rich, creamy lather, removing impurities without stripping skin of its natural oils. And even though its packed with ingredients known to hydrate skin, it leaves behind zero residue—only an irresistible, Pistachio and Salted Caramel fragrance."

Me: The name of this just makes me giggle. I love a good dirty pun on words. This came as part of one of the gift sets I bought and I didn't think much of it until I tried it. Originally I just thought "okay a shower gel, cool." The shower gel-cream lathers beautifully yet does not strip my skin of all moisture. It leaves my skin soft and clean. I may even be able to skin moisturizer after, but given the results I'm getting with the Bum Bum Cream, no way am I going to do that.

Brazilian Touch Hand Cream
Them: "Make them beg for your touch. Our lightly-scented, fast-absorbing hand cream with a powdery finish, leaves hands soft, supple and begging to be held. Infused with Brazil Nut, Cupuaçu Butter, Coconut Oil, and Acai Oil, it also helps to condition cuticles and strengthen nails. The best part? The formula is so light, hands are ready to play right away—there’s no waiting to touch after application."

Me: The first time I used this I didn't think it would do much. It absorbed so quickly and wasn't rich feeling so I thought it was just going to be a dud. Oh I was wrong. I mean, yes, it does absorb super quickly, but it leaves my hands feeling so soft and smooth. I don't understand how a cream so lightweight can work on my dry hands so very well but I like it. I've been using it multiple times a day not just for the feel but to do a dose of that yummy caramel pistachio scent, too.

Brazilian Kiss Cupuaçu Lip Butter
Them: "Meet the secret to beautiful, Brazilian Babe lips that are always ready to kiss. Our ultra-indulgent butter leaves lips looking smoother and feeling softer, thanks to an infusion of Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí Oil, and Coconut Oil. This multi-tasker is an amazing base for lip stains, it can be applied to cuticles and elbows to instantly soothe and heal dry skin, or, applied to the high planes of the face, it lends a translucent, radiant glow."

Me: I can always use more really good lip balms. The lip butter is really, really, really moisturizing. I like it A LOT. My lips get chapped so easily in the colder months so I'm hoping this will help prevent that this year. The taste is outstanding. A toasty caramel vanilla that is as addicting as the body products' scent! I haven't tried it on my elbows or cuticles yet, but if I get a second stick I definitely will.


Overall, I'm really glad I stumbled upon the Sol de Janeiro products, especially right before Sephora's sale and Christmas sets so I was able to try a lot of the line at an incredible value. High quality, excellent performing products. The brand does have more products I am eyeing including a body scrub mask and foot cream that are currently on my wishlist!
