The Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (pronounced BOOM BOOM Cream), is an amazing universal cream that you can use everywhere. You’ll probably get addicted to the smell because it is THAT good. I like to apply it on my upper thighs and bum, or let’s be real: anywhere I FREAKING want!
The SOL de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream is expensive starting at $10 for only 25 ML. For a body moisturizer that is on the expensive end. If you shop on SOL de Janeiro, you can save 10% off your first purchase right away and if you want to try the smaller size of the Bum Bum Cream it will cost you less than $10. You can also participate in subscribe and save on the SOL de Janeiro website so you can save 10% off each time you purchase.
If you shop at Sephora, the Bum Bum Cream starts at $20 for the 75 ML which is the same as the SOL de Janeiro website. The only difference is that Sephora does not carry the small 25 ML version to sell, this is usually included in Sephora Favourite Sets.
Watch out for Holiday 2021 at Sephora because they will carry the extra large version of the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream that is only available during Christmas.

Why is the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream so Expensive?
The Bum Bum Cream is so expensive because it contains a unique blend of 5 key ingredients that make your skin nourished and tighter than other drugstore body moisturizers.
If you only like this product because of the smell, then there is a dupe of the Bum Bum Cream you cannot sleep on!
Otherwise, here’s a review of the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream so you can decide for yourself if it is worth the money to spend on a body moisturizer product such as this one.
Why is the SOL de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream so GOOD?
The Bum Bum Cream by Sol de Janeiro is a unique Brazilian cream that smells like the best mix of vanilla, caramel, pistachio and coconut. The smell is SO addictive, I kept an empty container of the Bum Bum Cream just so I can smell it.
This famous body moisturizer also smooths the appearance of the skin to tighten and firm. This cream is really good if you have cellulite (Hint: Everyone has it…even babies!) because it contains Guarana, an ingredient that has 5 times the amount of caffeine a coffee bean does. Caffeine helps with micro circulation and boost the skin to tighten and firm when it is applied.
The Bum Bum cream also contains Cupuacu Butter found in the Amazon which helps moisturize the skin with fatty acids to maintain skin’s elasticity.
Coconut oil helps to nourish the skin while the Acai oil is rich in antioxidants that help the skin be protected by environmental factors as well.
Overall, the ingredients in the Bum Bum cream are top quality and that makes the cream thick and rich. The Bum Bum Cream is worth the money because the ingredients are so well defined and work together to firm up skin while nourishing it.
The Bum Bum cream also has the most unique and addictive smell I have ever come across.
You can order the Bum Bum cream on the Sol De Janeiro Website or at Sephora.com. If you wait until the Sephora sale you can get up to 20% but if you sign up for email on SolDeJaneiro.com you may be getting a lot of promotions via email.
Bum Bum Cream Dupe: OGX Extra Creamy + Coconut Miracle Oil Ultra Moisture Body Lotion
I have found the BEST Bum Bum Cream dupe from the drugstore. This has also been all over TikTok so it may be sold out so if you see it you need to grab it! It’s super affordable and smells almost IDENTICAL to the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream.
The best dupe for the Bum Bum Cream is: OGX Extra Creamy + Coconut Miracle Oil Ultra Moisture Body Lotion with Vanilla Bean, Fast-Absorbing Body Lotion. It retails for $7.99 at Target.
I’ve used this body cream before and I will tell you it smells exactly the same as the Bum Bum Cream. It has coconut oil of course that helps nourish and provide moisture into the skin. But the issue is that there isn’t much else in the way of ingredients that helps to tighten and nourish the skin.
In summary, the OGX Extra Creamy + Coconut Miracle Oil Ultra Moisture Body Lotion is just a body lotion that smells exactly like the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream. If you want tighter skin and love the smell of the Bum Bum Cream, I suggest you splurge on that!
