Sol de Janeiro Travel Light Set

(Affiliate Link) This little travel set of two body creams from Sol de Janeiro is not only great for throwing in your hand luggage but is also a brilliant way to sample a couple of products. I’ve previously blogged about the iconic Brazilian Bum Bum Cream but hadn’t tried the brand’s newer offering, Coco Cabana, before I got this set. I was pretty desperate to try the Coco Cabana to be honest and at £12 for this kit, it’s probably the most affordable way to do so.

Each pot of cream is 25ml, so they are pretty tiny but provide more than enough product to test both the consistency and scent to decide whether you’d commit to the full sizes. Bare in mind, these products are very generously scented and just the smallest amount of cream will likely be enough to have you smelling delicious.

Speaking of scent, if you don’t already know Bum Bum Cream basically smells like a sort of boozy, tropical dessert, with notes of salted caramel and pistachio. A lot of people absolutely love the smell of this stuff but there are some who can’t stand it. If you’re not into sweet scents, it probably won’t be for you.

Coco Cabana on the other hand is very coconut-centric. With notes of warm vanilla, toasted praline, sandalwood and tropical orchid. It’s quite a sophisticated coconut scent, absolutely perfect for warmer months, with a lightweight fast absorbing texture. It’s almost gel – like and a lot lighter on the skin that the Bum Bum Cream. Coco Cabana also doesn’t smell as in-your-face as Bum Bum, which some people might appreciate.

Bum Bum Cream also has Mica added into the mix to add some lustre to the skin, while Coco Cabana doesn’t. They’re both beautiful, slightly unusual, tropically scented products that make a perfect pair.
