Kmart drops $8 version of $77 cult Bum Bum cream: 'Smells the same'

The new Kmart range bares a striking resemblance to the popular Sol de Janeiro beauty products.

Kmart has just dropped their latest beauty dupe and it’s sending shoppers into an absolute spin.

It’s no secret that beauty brand Sol De Janeiro's Brazilian Bum Bum cream, sold at Mecca, is one of the most sought-after products on the market and a huge hit with Instagram influencers.

So when Kmart recently dropped an OXX Cosmetics dupe of the whole Sol De Janeiro line including creams, mists, body butters and fragrances it’s no real surprise that shoppers are racing to get their hands on it.

Social media is already abuzz with excitement over the new range with prices starting from $8.

“We need to see if these live up to the real thing!” One excited shopper commented on a Kmart fan Facebook page after news of the new line dropped.

“Kmart's bum bum cream!” another excitedly exclaimed with another saying “These would be cool if they lived up to the real thing!”

The dupes include a version of the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream which retails for $77 and the Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist which retails for $61.

The new Kmart range products are $8 each with body packs also available for $16.

Fears new dupes may run out soon

Shoppers are already excitedly searching for them in store with stock saying it is already sold out on the Kmart website.

“I ran to Kmart and they were unpacking them,” one person confirmed on TikTok.

“Kmart never fails,” another added of the seemingly convincing dupe.

For those who can’t spot them in their local Kmart just yet, shoppers have said they have also found the range being stocked in Target after the store began stocking Kmart products such as Anko and OXX Cosmetics.

“I just found the cutest gift sets in Target today…for those that are interested they are like Sol De Janeiro dupes,” TikToker @ohthecrystalchandeliers told her followers after sharing the recently added three-piece beauty packs which include three of the new products.

“This set smells so similar to this Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist - it’s a pretty good dupe,” she added of the Beach Bliss body mist.

“It’s not exactly the same, the scent is a little bit different… but really similar. It’s an amazing dupe.”

The TikToker trialled the Coconut Waves scented products which is a mix of coconut, hazelnut and vanilla and the Beach Bliss range which includes caramel, almond and vanilla.

Kmart isn’t the first to dupe the popular Bum Bum Cream with Aldi also offering up a version of the cult beauty buy during their summer Special Buys.
