05 Oct Sol de Janeiro – The hottest skin, body and hair care from from Brazil
We’ve all heard the raves about their Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and how incredible it is, but Sol de Janeiro has a wide range of amazing skin, body and hair care products to try.
From shampoo and conditioner, to fresh scented lotion and fragrances, Sol de Janeiro has everything to make you feel as though you’ve just jumped off a plane into a sunny, tropical island.
So, what’s all the hype about?
There is so much to love about Sol de Janeiro, from the delicious smell, to the way the products make your skin feel. The revolutionary brand has come into the market to give us what we truly want; products that ACTUALLY work. Let’s delve into it deeper.
Environmentally friendly brand
Firstly, having vegan, cruelty free, paraben and sulphate free products are incredibly important in today’s society. Consequently, over 100 different ingredients have been banned at Sol de Janeiro. So, you can always be sure to feel great & guilt free when using these products.
They aim to use as many natural ingredients to keep your skin feeling healthy and hydrated.
Body positivity advocates
Not only are the actual products important, but we love that Sol de Janeiro values and advocates for body positivity. Focusing on diversity and beauty within, Sol de Janeiro incorporates diversity into their products through colours, scents and sensations with an aim to make everybody feel confident, happy and healthy.
Products that work
We’ve all fallen into the trap of buying an on-trend beauty item, only for it to have limited benefits. But we can safely say that Sol de Janeiro has hit the nail on the head with their formula for so many of their products. Ingredients used have been passed down through generations and successfully worked on so many different skin types. We will get into the product details and benefits further down, but overall, Sol de Janeiro kills it with long-lasting hydration and noticeably different skin tightening.
It’s impossible to not mention how amazing these products smell. And not only this, but the strong, tropical smell lasts all day, leaving you with compliments from everyone. We can’t get past the feeling of spending a day on the beach, to come home and freshen up with Sol de Janeiro’s hair, body and skin care. However even when you are stuck inside for the winter months, the amazing scents will make you feel as though you’re on a holiday.
Best of Sol de Janeiro: Body & Skin Care
Brazillian Bum Bum Cream
Starting off with their most popular product, the award winning Bum Bum lotion helps to smooth and tighten your skin, leaving it hydrated and soft. With top notes of pistachio and almond, this delicious smelling cream melts into the skin so beautifully, giving you that extra boost of confidence. Although you may get addicted to this product using it all the time, you don’t need to worry about having to re-stock all the time as the sizing of the tub is super generous.
Bum Bum Body Scrub
To compliment the Bum Bum Cream, this scrub exfoliates your skin leaving it feeling extremely soft and nourished. The microbead free blend allows the product to be gentle on the skin, so for those with sensitive skin who tend to react to exfoliants, this is the perfect product for you. Lathering this on while in the shower, followed by applying the Bum Bum Cream will soothe the skin and give you summer-ready skin.
Coco Cabana Cream
Being the first product that I tried before getting hooked to Sol de Janeiro, the Coco Cabana Cream is the most hydrating body moisturiser I have ever tried. For the dry skin ladies out there, this soft blend moisturiser helps to hydrate the skin for up to 72 hours. The ingredients help to support skin elasticity, keeping your body youthful and smooth. The Coco Cabana Cream has strong coconut notes, blended with vanilla and tropical orchid, giving off the fresh smell of summer.
GlowMotions Glow – Body Glow Oil
With three different shades to go crazy over, these body oil’s help to nourish and revitalize the skin. Choosing from a warm bronze, champagne, or pink shade, the oil’s can be used on both your body and face. For the body, you can apply all over for a smooth glow, or you can distribute the product on higher points to accentuate your features such as collarbones and shoulders. As for your face, you only need the smallest pump to brighten up your skin.
Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter
Lips can often be forgotten about when it comes to skincare, but it’s such an important step, especially when you’re in the heat of summer. The lip butter is infused with nourishing oils to leave them feeling soft and kissable. It’s a great base before you apply your lipstick as it hydrates in just one swipe. Just like many other products from Sol de Janeiro, the lip butter is multi-use as it hydrates other dry spots on your body such as elbows and cuticles.
Brazillian Nude Cream
Looking for a body cream with a more subtle scent? Sol de Janeiro has also created a nourishing moisturiser that is unscented and fragrance free. This is a perfect option for those with sensitive skin as it is allergen free, dermatologist-tested and kind to all skin types. Blended with cupuaçu butter, açai oil, and coconut oil, the Brazillian Nude Cream will leave your skin feeling silky and smooth all day long.

Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ‘71 Hair/ Body Fragrance Mist
With top notes of caramelized vanilla and sea salt, and mid notes of toasted macadamia nut and white chocolate, how can you resist this scent? Fragrances from Sol de Janeiro are diverse and unique compared to other perfumes, you will be standing out from the crowd with compliments aplenty.
Being the signature scent of summer, SOL Cheirosa ‘62 has strong notes of pistachio, salted caramel and vanilla. And to heighten the scent, spray from head to toe after you apply the Bum Bum Cream, as this will leave you smelling like a Brazilian Goddess.
