Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Review

Bum Bum cream (pronounced Boom Boom, apparently) is a much hyped product from Sol De Janeiro.

This is an American based company (although it says it’s Brazilian…) who produce this product and I have heard so many people talk about it on their YouTube videos.

The price so far has put me off the product but I saw this duo travel set on Cult Beauty which has a 75ml body butter and a 90ml body spray included and had to give it a try.

The most talked about thing is the scent of this collection so the first thing I did was open the pot and take a big sniff to see what the fuss was about.

It’s impossible to describe properly but there is something warming, tropical, floral and all round delicious about the smell. It’s a summertime scent for sure.

So far I have used this a few times and I get a billion compliments on the scent every time I use it.

I use the cream first, which is a lovely thick body butter (not quite as thick as the one from soap and glory) which sinks in to the skin like a dream. I have to admit this really kept my skin hydrated all day.

The scent. The scent stays on your body forever. I used this on my arms and décolletage  area as I didn’t want to use too much all over the body and a little goes a long way.

Immediately after using the cream I used a few sprays of the body spray to ensure it lasts and it really does.

I sprayed it on my hair and it was scented for days after, until I washed it.

The packaging of both of these isn’t luxury but the price is. However, it’s not too much of an issue as the products themselves are identifiable and robust.

I honestly wish I hadn’t enjoyed this as much as I do as I absolutely don’t want to be without this duo, especially the cream.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous gift for someone then I would definitely consider this duo. However, you might regret purchasing it as it’s not something you would want to be without.

Have you tried either of these?

What do you think?

    I haven’t tried this brand before but I do like the sound of it. I like summer aromas in body mists. It’s interesting how this duo of products works, and how the body mist seals the scent of the cream as well.

    ‘I wish I didn’t enjoy this’ Ha! I know that feeling every time I treat myself to a luxury mini. I have seen this all over but looking at the ingredient list, there just didn’t seem to be anything revolutionary that justified the price, you know? The spray sounds lovely though.

    Not seen or heard of it before but that aroma sounds dreamy. The cream sounds good, I love it when you don’t need to much as it means you use less product so it doesn’t run out too fast. The duo does sound like a great gift.

    Don’t know anything about this product but do find it funny they say its from Brazil when in fact it’s an American product.
    A little strange…thanks for your honest review.

    I haven’t tried these products before but from your excitement, I think I will have to give them a go!

    It sounds like it smells nice. Is the cream like a moisturiser? Also what is the spray for? X

  8. November 13, 2017 / 7:56 pm

    I’ve not heard of this product before, it definitely sounds interesting and I would be interested to know what the price of it is. Definitely strange they try and make out it’s from somewhere it isn’t.

  9. November 13, 2017 / 8:53 pm

    You have me intrigued by the smell now. I might just have to treat myself.

  10. November 13, 2017 / 9:29 pm

    Not heard of this brand before however the products sound great. It sounds very summery, it is strange though that its made out to be Brazilian when it isn’t.

  11. November 13, 2017 / 10:42 pm

    Hahah I really laughed at your closing paragraph, I too would have wished I didn’t like it as much as you did. It’s tough when you realise you have expensive tastes!

  12. November 13, 2017 / 11:30 pm

    Lol the name does make me laugh but as I love tropical and fruity scents I am intrigued to try it. Do you know if it is cruelty free by any chance? x

  15. November 14, 2017 / 10:01 am

    I’ve heard about the cream so many times and I really want to try it so I might pick it up when I’m in the States next year x

  16. November 14, 2017 / 12:12 pm

    I have never tried any of these but like the quirky name and they look awesome x

  19. November 14, 2017 / 1:03 pm

    I’ll be honest and say I’ve never heard of this cream before! I do love the sound of the scent as I enjoy tropical scented items. Would love to know the cost though!!

  20. November 14, 2017 / 1:37 pm

    I need to smell and try it now! It sounds so delicious!!

  21. November 14, 2017 / 2:48 pm

    I haven’t heard of this before but love the look of it and the smell sounds amazing, will definitely look out to give it a try.

  22. November 14, 2017 / 3:52 pm

    Ooh I’ve never actually heard of this brand before. It sounds amazing though – will have to give it a try!

  23. November 14, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    How much was it? Love the name and it seems like it has a nice smell it would be great for someone that like summer scents.

  24. November 14, 2017 / 6:10 pm

    I haven’t bought this product, but I did have a little test when I visited Sephora. Whilst it did smell heavenly I just couldn’t justify the price tag!

  25. November 14, 2017 / 9:28 pm

    Sounds like it smells amazing! I wish the marketing team had done a bit more research on the name though!

  26. November 14, 2017 / 11:27 pm

    This sounds like a lovely gift – I find it hard to find products that keep their scent so this sounds brilliant!

    I really want to smell this now. I can never have too much body butter.

  28. November 15, 2017 / 8:26 pm

    Haven’t tried these. Hadn’t even heard of them, honestly, but they sound like they smell sooo good!! x

  29. November 16, 2017 / 10:46 am

    oh this sounds delightfully lovely i love a tropical scent

  30. November 16, 2017 / 9:41 pm

    I should give these a try once I run out of body butter. I never seem to remember to use it

  31. November 16, 2017 / 9:42 pm

    I should give this a try once I run out of body butter 🙂

    Boom Boom sounds much nicer than how I thought it was pronounced! It sounds lovely.
