With the Brazilian Bum Bum Body Cream, £46

How do you like your body care to make you feel?
I always need my body care to step up, so I can step OUT! I want it to make me feel confident in my body. As a bigger girl, it can be hard to channel that sometimes, but Sol de Janeiro helps me embody the confidence I need to be fully myself.

What did you love about the Bum Bum Cream?
I loved how moisturising it is! It honestly made my skin GLOW. This is gonna be my go-to treat for my skin. It’s a multi-sensory delight – it smells like salted caramel, it feels creamy and it melts into my skin. I’m legit obsessed.

What are your go-to self-care rituals?
I’m a firm believer in self-care Sundays. I have a bath, use a face mask and treat myself to a lovely glass of wine. Generally, I always feel good when my skin is glowing and moisturised.

THEO, JUNIOR MODEL BOOKER
Using the Bom Dia Bright Body Cream, £46

What mantra makes you feel empowered?
You are literally doing your best and that’s all that matters.

What did you think of the Bom Dia Cream?
I love its scent. When I close my eyes it almost feels like I’m on holiday. I also like to make sure I’m looking after my skin, so I love a moisturising product like this one. Talk about silky smoooth!


What does your ultimate summer look like?
Me lying on a sun lounger with Sol de Janeiro to my left, a Fanta Lemon (maybs with some vodka) to my right and a huge pool in front of me. Plus, I'd top it off with Summer Walker on the speakers.

What was your first impression of your the Shower Cream-Gel?
I honestly couldn't get over how INSANE the scent was!! It literally reminds me of holiday life, laying by the pool with a cocktail in hand. It is the ultimate summer scent, and I cannot wait to use it every day. It melted into my skin and has very quickly become a holy grail product in my routine!

What’s your happy place?
Anywhere in the sun! The sun automatically puts me in the best mood ever ☀️

ALISHA, VAT MANAGER
Using the Triple Brazilian Butter Hair Repair Treatment, £35

What do you love about the Hair Repair Treatment?
I love the packaging! The colours immediately put me in a summer mood. The texture is also so buttery, and I love how fun all the product names are – it really makes Sol de Janeiro stand out.

What do you look for when it comes to your hair care?
I like to keep it simple with hair care, as a lot of products can actually make my hair greasy and oily. I look for products that’ll keep my hair feeling soft and give it a great shine. I always test a product a few times before deciding if it’s good for my hair, but a good shampoo and conditioner coupled with the Sol de Janeiro treatment is a strong start!

What does your ultimate summer look like?
My ultimate summer includes sun, sea and sand! I want to travel to new places, lie on beaches, experience a new culture, eat new food and sightsee. Whether I go on a relaxing beach holiday or an adventure, the Sol de Janeiro products will defs be coming in my suitcase.

DEBS, PARTNERSHIP PRODUCER
With the Coco Cabana Cream, £46

What do you love about the Coco Cabana Cream?
Firstly, I love the packaging – it’s so fun, colourful and bright. I couldn’t wait to have it on display in my bathroom. The texture is also so amazing. It’s so creamy and luxurious – a little goes a long way. I hate moisturisers that leave me feeling sticky, but this cream absorbs into my skin quickly and it smells divine.

What’s your happy place?
A red-hot Friday evening at Glastonbury, cider in hand, watching Maribou State play on the West Holts stage with all my best pals around me and not a care in the world… (while smelling of Coco Cabana Cream, obvs).

What are your plans for summer 2022?
I can feel my excitement levels rising as I write this… Top of my list is Glastonbury. It’s the 50th Anniversary this year and I can't wait to be in a field listing to Billie Eilish with all my bffs ✨ Then a trip to Ibiza, taking the boat over to Palma, hopping to Barcelona and onto Love International Festival in Croatia. Summer 2K22, come at me!

HANNAH, PARTNERSHIP MANAGER
With the Brazilian Crush Cheirosa Perfume Mist, £19

What were your first impressions of the perfume mist?
I loved the way it looks, and the scent is something you can defs wear daytime to evening. It’s light but at the same time warm... almost good enough to eat haha!

What do you look for when it comes to fragrance?
I want a scent to make me feel uplifted and confident – after all, it’s the finishing touch when you’re getting ready for the day or a night out.

When do you feel at your most confident?
When I've been working out and taking care of my body. It's also about being around the right people, the people who bring the best out of you.
