Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is the best-selling cream from the brand since it launched. It has won multiple awards and appreciation from around the world. As someone with very dry skin, it was normal for me to be excited for this body cream aka body butter. ‘Bum Bum' is pronounced as ‘boom boom' in Brazil but it is not just about it. It is about all the body, from head to toe. I know if it a body moisturizer and why I need a full article dedicated to it. It is because it so too good and the good news is that it is now available in a limited edition ‘Biggie Biggie‘ version. Also, it is the perfect time for me to get a backup for myself.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream contains caffeine-rich Guarana extract that helps tighten the appearance of skin. Guarana has five times the caffeine of coffee and thus, very potent. Other key ingredients include Capuaco Butter that is full of fatty acids. Also, coconut oil nourishes and heals the skin. Moreover, Acai Oil and Brazil Nut are both high in anti-oxidants. Massaging this cocktail of nourishing, skin-loving, healing, and strengthening ingredients in circular motion instantly hydrates the skin while regular use helps smooth the skin with a visible tightening effect. The ingredients in this cream as sustainably sourced.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is scented with the Cheirosa '62 fragrance that has below notes:
- Top Notes – pistachio, almond
- Middle Notes – heliotrope, jasmine petals
- Base Notes – vanilla, salted caramel, sandalwood
My first thought after opening the jar of Brazilian Bum Bum Cream was is this for real. It instantly uplifts the mood like I am at my favorite beach or island and enjoying each bit of my life. I know ‘happy‘ is a state of mind or mood but I can totally relate the first impression and scent of this cream to a version of happiness and joy. It is a very rich, smooth, silky soft cream. It applies very well and massages beautifully on the skin. Then, it absorbs with a little circular massage without leaving any residue. Despite being very nourishing, there is no greasiness. The only thing it leaves is beautiful skin and a scent that stays forever.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is one of those products that are long-lasting both in terms of performance, nourishment, as well as scent. Definitely, in my top favorites. I can smell it on my skin even at the end of the day. The scent is not overpowering at all but it reminds me of being there while I turn my face or move my arms around. I use it on my whole body and have noticed my skin is very happy. It is hydrating and nourishing. My skin feels comfortable and radiant. Also, it is soothing after a day out. The best thing is I have used Brazilian Bum Bum Cream in winter, spring, and now summer. It is a cream I can use all year round.
Another great thing is that this cream is suitable for expecting mothers and lactating mothers. My friend is loving it right now, she used it during the whole of her pregnancy and breastfeeding. But again, it is always safe to patch test before using it.
My skin is silky soft, smooth, and glowing. I have noticed the texture of my skin has improved, it is more even and I see some tightening happening. I am not sure it is due to this cream alone or just the amazing ingredients and nourishment that are doing this. But I would like to believe it due to the combined effort of this cream and my regular walking regime. I can totally keep on writing about this Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, it is so good and I would totally recommend you to check it out. I am impressed!
Please note that the limited edition ‘Biggie Biggie' version is 500ml and comes with a spatula. The original version is 240ml.
