Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel Review


By Priti,                                         Body Shop Japense Cherry Blossom Shower Gel

You guys remember my Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Puree Body Lotion review no? Then you go and read it 😀 cause what I just looooooooove about is it’s wonderful smell, so here comes the shower gel. As I mention in that post this is from our TBS sale haul.

Hey inbetween, there’s Body Shop sale going-on this week until Sunday and I went on Monday with my friend to check it out and will you gals believe I didn’t got anything? See am a good gal :p

They again had this cheap throw in price for the product which expires in three months and this time for makeup range ….the mineral powder foundation was so so tempting just for $5, in the same sale that same tub costed $19.90 for 5g and the original price is a jaw dropping $39.90 it comes with SPF 25!!

So you gals think it’s worth to buy mineral powder foundation for $5 which we have to use it in 3 months? Say fast….I still have days 😉 oh ya they had only one shade 05

  •  Packaging ~ The shower gel comes in clear plastic bottle with a flip top, 250ml bottle is also same as this 60ml bottle along with a flip top though it (250ml bottle) comes in a taller, slimmer bottle than some of the older shower gels from The Body Shop, I really like the stem like Japanese blossom picture on the cover it’s very cute and on the back of the bottle is all other details which we normally don’t read? Do you??  Well I hardly !! It’s so tiny to read too why to stress my eye?
  • Texture ~ The bottle itself in light pink colour and the shower gel is colorless as you can see in the picture and the shower gel is just gel, oh ya it’s in gel consistency thick, bubbly just how a gel suppose to be.  Not every TBS shower gel has this consistency, so +1 for this 🙂
  • Fragrance ~  I can go ga-ga over it, it’s so good …just wow.  It’s warm, slightly spicy, floral scent (well suppose to be floral with the cherry blossom rite?)   It’s does smell like cherry blossom …reminding wonderful spring time …well if you had that experience then yes sure it’s reminds.

  •  My Experience ~ It lather well and rinses easily, but it’s a bit drying. After showering you might  need to follow up with a good body moisturizer.   It gives a clean and fresh feeling but ya it doesn’t last long now to think of it only few product last long so I just give a pass to this one too.


 What I do not like about Body Shop Japenese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel

  • It’s sure expensive.
  • Since it’s in gel sometime it’s difficult to get the gel out of the bottle you have to really squeeze the bottle and towards the end of it I suggest you keep the bottle up side down 🙂
  • The amazing smell doesn’t last long …what a pity :((

I still like this product may be cause I got in sale and a small 60ml bottle and it’s got this wonderful cherry blossom smell, I will sure not purchase a 250ml bottle at that expensive price 😀 …so gals if you can find this in sale go grab it.

Some times I think I should do a blog sale what you gals say? Get the stuff in sale here and give it to you, interested?? I shall think about my profit though :p

  1. Hi Priti, even if u start doing a blog sale here it is going to cost you a bomb ..shipping to India will be highly expensive :makeup:

  2. I love the smell of TBS Cherry Blossom! It is so yum, I have their Body Butter – but I only like the smell. As a moisturizer it is not very good 😛
