The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion Review – Hi All,
It’s a long time since I purchased anything for myself from TBS…Since their Expiry date scam was exposed I never stepped into the store. But my MIL is a TBS lover thru and thru and waits for me to get her stock of TBS whenever I go to my sasuraal. So while doing my Diwali shopping, I went in to pick up some soaps and body buttors for them (all the while checking the expiry tab) and came across this lotion. I recalled the Japanese Cherry Blossom Puree Lotion & Japanese Cherry Blossom shower gel being reviewed here in the past and decided to try out this body lotion from the same range..

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion comes in a tall, thin bottle with a pump dispenser. The lotion itself is white and is sooo thin…Unlike the body butters which take alotta time to get absorbed into the skin, this lotion sinks in easily. So those who face the issue of clogged pores would definitely like this.
The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion has a very pleasant floral fragrance which lasts for quite some time…say about an hour or so which is quite commendable. I’d deem this perfect for summers and monsoons. However, winters and supremely dry skin does call for thicker body butters.
Surprisingly my Hubs likes it too! Usually he hates my TBS stuff because they tend to clog his pores..I should mention here that he has really oily skin. But this is the first lotion he has also taken a liking too…SCORE!!
Wrt effectiveness, I give this a 10…It soothes my skin and makes it super soft and my skin looks actually moisturized rather than dry and yucky like they are in their usual uber-dry avatar.
