How did a “sunshine-in-a-jar” body cream come to sell every 28 seconds at Sephora? Today, we’re diving into the cult-fave Brazilian body care line that celebrates your every curve with its beach-vibe packaging and ridiculously addicting scent. Launched back in 2015, Sol de Janeiro’s body butters, washes and scrubs are inspired by the beaches of Rio, all designed to help you flaunt the body you’ve got. We get the backstory on the brand’s cheekily named Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, as Camila reveals how the founders broke all kinds of classic business rules on the path to the brand’s massive success.

The Sol de Janeiro Brazilian “Bum Bum” Cream that started it all

Plus, Camila harkens back to her roots to share Brazilian beauty secrets (like why they’re so obsessed with their toes!) and the traditional dessert recipe she still makes today. Stay tuned until the end for Carlene and Jill’s personal reviews on what makes Sol de Janeiro’s best-selling Brazilian BUM BUM cream so.damn.good. And ANNOUNCEMENT EMOJI!
