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 have not tried this brand before but I do love my body butters and this sounds amazing, I am going to be adding this to my christmas list x
‘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.
MELANIE EDJOURIAN says
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.
Candice Nikeia says
I haven’t tried these products before but from your excitement, I think I will have to give them a go!
Jade Bremner says
It sounds like it smells nice. Is the cream like a moisturiser? Also what is the spray for? X
Sarah Bailey says
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.
Starlight and Stories says
You have me intrigued by the smell now. I might just have to treat myself.
Joanna Bayford says
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.

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!
Ana De- Jesus says
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
This looks great. I havent heard of this brand. Love the packaging
The childish part of me giggled at the name! Great to hear that it works so well for you xxx
Rhian Westbury says
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
melissa major says

Laura H says
Well bum bum cream certainly sounds funny.. Glad to hear it smells good!
I have never tried any of these but like the quirky name and they look awesome x
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!!
The London Mum says
I need to smell and try it now! It sounds so delicious!!
Nichola - Globalmouse says
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.
Amy Deverson says
Ooh I’ve never actually heard of this brand before. It sounds amazing though – will have to give it a try!
Baby Isabella says
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.
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!
Bread // Queer Little Family says
Sounds like it smells amazing! I wish the marketing team had done a bit more research on the name though!
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.
Haven’t tried these. Hadn’t even heard of them, honestly, but they sound like they smell sooo good!! x
lisa prince says
oh this sounds delightfully lovely i love a tropical scent
Kristine Tsiknaki says
I should give these a try once I run out of body butter. I never seem to remember to use it
Kristine Tsiknaki says
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.
