The Best Sol de Janeiro Products to Start With

If this is your first Sol de Janeiro rodeo, then you’re in luck as there are plenty of delicious sets featuring some of the best products, which serve as the perfect introduction to the brand. And the gorgeous travel cases the sets come in make these even more of a must-have. 

Opt for the classic Bum Bum Jet Set, for a taste of the iconic Cherosia 62 Fragrance Mist, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, and Brazilian 4play Shower Gel. The products come in handy travel sizes – ideal travel toiletries for your next trip. If you’re wondering “what is Bum Bum cream?”, believe us when we say it’s one of the best body moisturisers around. All the pieces in this Sol de Janeiro set are in the gorgeous Cherosia ‘62 scent, so you’re guaranteed to smell amazing after sampling them. 

You could also try the Beija Flor Jet Set, featuring the Beija Flor Body Wash, Elasti-Cream, and Cheirosa ‘68 Perfume Mist. The Beija Flor cream is a collagen-supporting body cream but features a gentle retinol alternative, so you’ll still be left with smooth skin. Once you’ve sampled the products in this set, you’ll be stocking up.

If it’s glowing skin you’re after, sample the Bom Dia Jet Set. This set includes the Bom Dia Bright Cream, Bom Dia Clarifying Body Cleanser and Cheirosa ‘40 Mist. The Bom Dia range utilises fruit AHAs and vitamin C to exfoliate and brighten skin, leaving you with a gorgeous glow. And as with all Sol de Janeiro products, you’ll be left smelling amazing. 

The Best Sol de Janeiro Skincare for Your Body

Whilst sadly Sol de Janeiro don’t do skincare you’d use on your face, they do specialise in skincare for your body. Find body moisturisers, body oils, and body scrubs that will leave you with your best-ever skin. 

The OG Sol de Janeiro product and the biggest fan favourite is, of course, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This hydrating firming cream is a body moisturiser you’re sure to fall in love with. The smell is the stuff of summer holiday daydreams and it will transform any dry skin you might have over your body – an essential in every body care routine.  The caffeine-rich Guaraná in the cream encourages circulation, which is what makes it so effective at tightening and smoothing the appearance of your skin. The luxurious cupuaçu butter is fast absorbing and deeply hydrating, resulting in instantly silky soft skin. Your skin will adore it. 

A complementary product to the Bum Bum Cream (and also one of our favourites) is the Bum Bum Body Scrub. This microbead-free scrub will exfoliate your skin with a blend of crushed cupuaçu seeds, sugar crystals, caffeine-rich guaraná and coconut oil – it will leave your skin soft, glowy and shimmering. Use it a couple of times a week or as part of your ‘everything shower routine’. 

If you’re looking for the best body oils, then you’ll find some great options from Sol de Janeiro. 

For a classic body oil, add the Bum Bum Body Firmeza Oil into your routine, layer it with a Sol de Janeiro moisturiser for incredibly soft skin. This oil works to firm, nourish and even depuff your body, by combining guaraná caffeine+ Complex™, microalgae extract and Brazilian olive oil, whilst bathing you in the much-loved Cheriosa ‘62 fragrance too. 

Sol de Janeiro products are all inspired by Brazil, and their best product for giving you a sun-kissed glow like you’ve just stepped off the beaches of Rio is the GlowMotions Glow Body Oil. This Sol de Janeiro body oil comes in two shades that will both leave you with glowing skin that’s gorgeously soft, thanks to the nourishing blend of upuaçu butter, açaí oil and coconut oil.

The Best Sol de Janeiro Perfumes

Sol de Janeiro perfumes come in a beautiful range of scents that all smell like summer and holidays. Explore our guide to all the best Sol de Janeiro scents for info on how each one smells – but if you’re looking for our favourites, then it has to be these perfumes…

The Brazilian Crush Cheirosa’62 Mist is one of our favourite Sol de Janeiro products around. It has notes of pistachio, almond, vanilla, salted caramel and sandalwood, creating a smell you won’t get enough of. It’s also what the Bum Bum range is scented with. You can spray this perfume over your hair and body to leave you smelling and feeling like summer all year round. 

We also have a real soft spot for the Brazilian Crush Cheirosa’40 scent for its sultry notes of jasmine blooms and vanilla woods. It’s got the warmth of the Cheirosa ‘59 Perfume Mist and the fruity floral scent of the Cheirosa ‘68 Perfume. Safe to say all the Sol de Janeiro perfumes will brighten up your day whenever you mist yourself. 

If you aren’t sure which perfume to choose, then we recommend the Perfume Mist Discovery Set – the perfect way to sample five of the best Sol de Janeiro scents. Don’t blame us if you fall for all of them. 

Other Sol de Janeiro Products to Try…

Start to explore the Sol de Janeiro haircare range with the Brazilian Joia Milky Leave-In Conditioner. It will leave your hair smelling beautiful, whilst hydrating, nourishing and protecting your hair from heat damage. Babaçu oil provides lightweight moisture, without weighing your hair down and protects against humidity. Brazil nut oil adds much-needed nourishment to your hair, helping to protect it from breakage, and cupuaçu butter hydrates and tames frizz. It’s a must-have, especially for your next holiday somewhere hot – it’s a saviour in frizz-causing humidity. 

Another holiday essential from Sol de Janeiro is the Rio Radiance Body Spray SPF 50. If you needed more reasons to wear SPF, this is it. It won’t just protect you from harmful UV rays – this spray also brightens and evens your skin tone thanks to niacinamide and pitanga extract, and the coconut water provides a cooling sensation. We can’t wait to protect ourselves with this all summer. 

And finally, a Sol de Janeiro product we like to keep with us everywhere – the Brazilian Kiss Cupuaçu Lip Butter. This hydrating lip balm is a staple in our lip care routine – it combines cupuaçu butter, açaí oil, and coconut oil to nourish lips and banish dryness.
