13 Bum Bum Cream Dupes You Need To Snag

I, like the rest of the world, have been obsessed with Sol de Janeiro’s Bum Bum Cream. And as I was meandering through the aisles, desperately trying to locate my coveted cream, I thought to myself: there must be another option, some Bum Bum Cream dupes with the same effect. Or multiple options.

It stuck in my head. So, off I went to the internet, and then went out IRL, to see if there was any truth behind that fleeting aisle thought.

What I Looked For 

Okay, a brief overview of Bum Bum Cream for those who don’t know: it’s a formula that claims to help with smoothing and tightening, so your skin looks alive and toned. The Bum Bum Cream also has a slight sheen to it, so in the sun, you glimmer a little.

In terms of ingredients, it has cupuaçu butter to help with moisture and elasticity, courtesy of fatty acids, phytosterols, and polyphenols; açai oil filled with antioxidants; coconut oil, to condition and nourish your skin; and guarana, an Amazonian plant that helps with anti-aging thanks to its large amounts of caffeine.

So, for me, the Bum Bum Cream dupes had to have conditioning capabilities, anti-aging properties, and elasticity-boosting properties. 

After endless digging, I’ve come up with some fantastic alternatives. These are the best 13 dupes that I’ve found, and yes, I’m already basking in non-Bum-Bum anti-aging as I wait for my next batch of Bum Bum cream to come in. But that’s not the point.

OUAI Body Crème

Don’t waste your time using a body cream that sits on your skin and takes time to work – this one instantly soaks in, then starts its job immediately. Its ultimate benefit is hydration, thanks to squalane (not squalene, no typo here), which locks in moisture and tends to dry spots. Like your good ol’ Bum Bum Cream, it has cupuaçu butter, too, as well as coconut oil, so your skin’s elasticity is nurtured at the same time.

Rich Coconut Coffee Body Cream

The container says it’s a moisturizer, and, yeah, it is: avocado, coconut, and argan oils come into play to hydrate and condition skin with nourishing shea butter. But it’s the caffeine, working hard to tighten and firm, cocoa butter, and vitamin E that give this Bum Bum Cream dupe its other benefits: fighting lumps and bumps all over the body, erasing stretch marks and scars, and protecting skin from wrinkles and fine lines from free radicals.

Marissa reviewed their KP Bump Eraser cream, and now we’re recommending their collagen cream for its amazing effects on your booty. Niacinamide helps strengthen while also plumping up your tush, giving it a fuller appearance. But the big guns come out a’blazin’ with collagen and peptides.
