The Body Shop - Japanese Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel



This! This stuff is amazing. The Japanese Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel is just beautiful! I'm a giant fan of anything Cherry Blossom! It's everything about it. The smell, the look, the pink! It's just perfect in every which way I can think of.

I gave this a try after reading a few other blogs a while ago, but decided now I should probably voice my own opinions on it.

I've read mixed reviews really. Some people love it. Some people don't. It really comes down to your personal opinion of soap. Or "gel." Whatever it is. Stuff that washes you! Whether you like the smell, or the texture.

I love the smell. I think it's sweet without being sickly, it's unique without being too crazy, and it's gentle without being weak. But that's just my opinion. If you're thinking about trying it, but you're not sure if you'll like the smell, my suggestion would be to head in to a Body Shop and just smell it first. Or if you're buying online, buy the smaller bottle. That way it doesn't go to waste.

I also loved that a little goes a long way, (my favourite saying) and it really lathers up good with a loofah. I use this in the shower, haven't tried it in the bath yet so I'm not sure what that would be like. But the shower, I love it! I use it all over except for my face and it really leaves my skin feeling smooth, and smelling great! 




So my overall verdict? One of my favourite shower gels! This is something I will keep buying again and again when I run out, and even though it's a little bit on the expensive side, I'll still repurchase!
I'm considering trying the other Japanese Cherry Blossom products, and picked up the hand and nail cream a week or so ago too (which I also really love!)

So have you tried this? What did you think of it? Or do you have another go-to Body Shop (or non-Body Shop) shower gel/wash that you love?



Also ladies, this is a heads up! I'm planning a little give-away for reaching 100 followers! I'm not sure if it will be open internationally just yet, as I'm a bit blah with postage, but I will keep you all posted!

  1. The bottle for this is what I find most appealing. It just looks light and delicate, exactly as cherry blossom should be! xo

  7. I generally like Body Shop shower gels, though I've only tried the fruity ones myself. A colleague at work uses the cherry blossom hand lotion though and she loves it :)
