Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel

I have to tell you that I had one very nasty cold this season, and one of the few pleasures that I found at this time was taking hot showers to open up my sinuses and relieve some of the symptoms. I didn't do much to pamper myself in terms of skincare, and didn't wear any makeup– partly because I felt awful– but also because I didn't want to contaminate any of my products. That said, I definitely luxuriated in wonderful products in the shower that made me feel a little better. One of my greatest obsessions during that time was the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel, and it has remained one of my all-time favorite shower gels since then!

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel is a rich and creamy lathering shower gel that gently cleans the skin without stripping it, and it smells utterly delicious. The creamy coconut aroma is punctuated by slight notes of jasmine, heliotrope and vanilla, but it is neither overpowering, nor too sweet, but instead warm and rich. The coconut oil leaves skin soft, smooth and hydrated, and it boasts suitable emollience for shaving. In fact, I prefer using this to shaving cream for my legs and under arms.

Fragrance Notes:
  • Top: pistachio, almond
  • Mid: heliotrope, jasmine petals
  • Dry: vanilla, salted caramel, sandalwood
According to Sol De Janeiro,

Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel is infused with naturally powerful ingredients from the Amazon, including a blend of nourishing cupuaçu butter, skin-conditioning coconut oil, and the antioxidant superpower of açaí. This lathering wash also makes an excellent shaving cream. It leaves a deliciously addictive pistachio-caramel fragrance lingering on skin all day.

Select Ingredients and their attributes:
  • Cupuaçu Butter, the Amazon’s answer to Shea Butter, is chock full of fatty-acids, Phytosterols and Polyphenols, powerful ingredients that lock in moisture and help restore skin’s elasticity.
  • Coconut Oil is all the rage now, but Brazilians have been enjoying their ample supply for centuries. Melts easily into skin to soften, condition and moisturize.
  • Açaí is the antioxidant super fruit powerhouse that helps keep skin healthy and young.
Made without: Phthalates, Parabens, Animal By-Products, Propylene Glycol, Synthetic Colors, Pegs, Petrolatum.
Overall Assessment: This is a very luxurious and super creamy shower gel that is a treat to the skin and to the senses! It is my most reached for shower gel these days, and I will definitely purchase another bottle when I finish this one.

  1. Did you review this or mention it previously, Helen? I'm pretty sure I remember this brand. I know I would adore this. Perfect for right now especially! I'm sorry to hear that you're sick. I had that nasty cold and it turned into bronchitis, so take care of yourself and feel better soon

    1. Hi Allison,

      This is my first review for this product. It is absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS! I really think that you would be thrilled by it! Thankfully my cold is on the way out, but teaching and long office hours seems to be prolonging the lingering symptoms. I am so sorry that your cold tuned into bronchitis– that is precisely what I have been worried about. So far, so good! I hope that you feel a lot better soon as well!

  2. Everyone I know is getting sick so I am crossing my fingers (and liberally using hand sanitizer) to stay cold-free. Hoping you're feeling better! The scent alone makes me want to try this, but the formula sounds amazing for dry skin too.

  3. This does sound luxurious and just the thing you need during your long cold. When I could finally get in the shower after my broken foot all I wanted was a way to have the water run over me and my wash to smell wonderful.
