6 Sol de Janeiro Formulas Giving Us All The Summer Feels

Best Sol de Janeiro Products | Space NK
Sol de Janeiro has made a business out of bottling summer – from the punchy yellow and orange packaging to feel-good textures and that signature scent. Whether you’re in full-blown summer holiday-mode or trying to relive your relaxed vacay vibes in the depths of winter, Sol de Janeiro never fails to inject some sunshine to your beauty routine.

Founded in 2015 by Heela Yang and Marc Capra, Sol de Janeiro is inspired by Brazilian culture. Each and every formula includes fruit and plant butters from the country and incorporates the Brazilian approach to beauty. From the iconic skin-softening body cream to the mood-boosting fragrance mists, these products are quick and easy to use.

Why We Love Sol de Janeiro

For us, it’s all about the iconic gourmand, Cheirosa ‘62 scent – the blend of vanilla, pistachio and salted caramel smells like holidays and never, ever fails to make us smile. The brand has tweaked the scent depending on the product, so some formulas have a fruitier hint with Cheirosa ’68 while others are more floral with Cheirosa ’40. Whether you’re washing your hair with Brazilian Joia Strengthening Smoothing Shampoo or giving your body some TLC with Beija Flor Elasti-Cream, there will be an uplifting scent to make the task feel so much more luxurious.

6 Of The Best Sol de Janeiro Products for 2023


Sol de Janeiro

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, $27.50

The Bestselling Body Cream
The Bum Bum Cream (pronounced ‘bom bom’) is the perfect place to start as it is Sol de Janeiro’s hero product. While the list of ingredients might have you thinking this is a rich, buttery moisturiser that will take a few minutes to absorb, as soon as you feel the silky texture, you’ll realise how light yet nourishing this formula is. It has an added bonus of leaving your skin with a gorgeous subtle sheen.


Sol de Janeiro

Bum Bum Body Firmeza Oil, $68.00

The Firming Body Oil
If you’re looking for a richer treatment, look no further than the Bum Bum Body Firmeza Oil. Formulated with the brand’s Guarana Caffeine+ Complex, this body oil helps to boost your circulation and aide lymphatic drainage for a firmer appearance. Don’t forget to massage in circular motions upwards towards your heart to maximise the benefits. You can layer this on top of the Bum Bum Cream too for a more pampering experience.


Sol de Janeiro

Cheirosa '62 Perfume Mist, $28.50

The Iconic Perfume Mist
Those who can’t get enough of Sol de Janeiro’s signature scent need this perfume mist in their life. Inspired by Brazilian beach culture in 1962, you can expect notes of vanilla, salted caramel and pistachio blended with sandalwood and jasmine petals. This perfume mist is a favourite on TikTok and regular sells out during the summer months.


Sol de Janeiro

Bom Dia Body Wash, $13.00

The Mood-Lifting Body Wash
With the floral scent of Cheirosa ’40 combined with the skin-smoothing benefits of AHAs and BHAs, this body wash is a great way to kick start your morning. The formula helps to ease congestion and ingrown hairs, leaving your skin feeling smoother and softer.


Sol de Janeiro

Beija Flor Elasti-Cream, $27.50

The Game-Changing Body Lotion
We briefly mentioned this skin-smoothing body lotion earlier and wanted to highlight Beija Flor Elasti-Cream again in case you haven’t tried it. Not only does this dreamy body cream nourish your skin, but the plant-based collagen and cacay oil also help to supercharge your cell turnover and provide long-lasting hydration. It’s one of the best body creams for dry skin and anyone looking to improve the appearance of their skin – it’s particularly good for knees, elbows and ankles.


Sol de Janeiro

Beija Flor Jet Set, $36.40

The Must-Have Beauty Travel Set
While we’re on the topic on Beija Flor, the new Jet Set kit has arrived and we are obsessed. Featuring the Beija Flor Elasti-Cream, the Beija Flor Body Wash and the Cheirosa ’68 Perfume Mist, we doubt this set will stay in stock for long. The travel-friendly trio comes in a gorgeous bag, making it the ideal beauty treat to yourself if you have a holiday on the horizon and are looking for the best beauty minis.
