What Is Bum Bum Cream?

Bum Bum Cream is a beautifully scented body moisturiser with plenty of benefits. The cream is infused with Cheirosa 62  – it smells good enough to eat, and you’ll love enveloping yourself with the scent of pistachio, salted caramel, and vanilla. The rich cream is fast absorbing, so you won’t be left feeling greasy after applying it, but smelling wonderful, with deeply hydrated skin…

What Does Bum Bum Cream Do?

As one of the best body moisturisers around, this wonder cream does more than only deeply hydrate your skin. Bum Bum Cream visibly firms your skin, leaving you with soft skin as well as replacing any dullness with a beautiful, healthy glow. It does it all, thanks to the Brazilian ingredients it’s packed with…

Guaraná Extract: Caffeine-rich guaraná is a very potent form of caffeine that helps to stimulate microcirculation – making this such a brilliant firming cream. It’s excellent at visibly firming and tightening skin. What’s more, it’s also a powerful antioxidant, so as well as firming, it also works to protect the skin from environmental damage. 

Cupuaçu Butter: This Brazilian butter is the ingredient responsible for Bum Bum Cream being so deeply hydrating. It’s also fast absorbing, making this cream ideal for your daily body care routine –  you can salvage dry legs in seconds. It delivers essential fatty acids deep into your skin, for hydration and smoothness that lasts. 

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has many benefits, working in this cream to leave skin well-nourished, conditioned, and soft-to-touch.

Brazil Nut Oil: Brazil nut is one of the most selenium-rich foods in the world – so its oil being in Bum Bum Cream is great news. It helps your skin to naturally protect itself – guaranteeing glowing skin all day long. 

Açaí Oil: Another antioxidant-rich oil, this works to lock in moisture for lasting results. 

Is Bum Bum Cream Just for the Bum?

You’ll be pleased to hear that despite the name, Bum Bum Cream isn’t just for the bum. You can use this wonder product all over your body. As alluring as all the benefits of Bum Bum Cream sound it shouldn’t be used on your face though – stick to your body only to visibly tighten, add a healthy glow, and salvage dry skin. 

What’s the Best Way to Use Brazilian Bum Bum Cream?

To have lusciously soft and wonderfully smelling skin every day we’d recommend using Bum Bum Cream daily, as part of your body care routine. Try to fit it in after your shower routine

Massage the cream in a circular motion when applying – this helps with absorption and circulation stimulation. 

For seriously soft skin, exfoliate a couple of times a week, following up with the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. We love using the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Scrub, it features even more caffeine-rich guaraná and smells just as good as the Bum Bum Cream. Then, layer your fragrances on top and smell like Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist all day. 

Now you know all about Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, we’re sure you’ll want to try it out yourself. It’s available in a large 240ml size, 75ml (perfect for your travel toiletry bag), or as part of the Bum Bum Jet Set – the perfect intro to the iconic Bum Bum range.
