Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion

Do you fancy experimenting with body lotions? I do. There are so many options and so many fragrances. It is the equivalent of picking up lipsticks from MAC. I love Bath & Body Works skincare range for their unique fragrance blend and one of my favourites from their collection is Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion.

The product claims to “Japanese Cherry Blossom – Our exclusive Signature Body Lotion formula, fortified with powerful ingredients like super conditioning Shea Butter, fast absorbing Jojoba Oil and protective Vitamin E, hydrates skin with moisture that lasts all day. Our non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and completely to leave skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished, making it the perfect daily moisturizer.

Smooth over body to moisturize and lightly fragrance skin with our exclusive, award-winning Japanese Cherry Blossom, a seductive and mysterious floral scent inspired by the exotic gardens of Japan.

My Experience with Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion

Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion is one of the sweetest smelling body lotions I have tried. I have never had the opportunity of basking in the lovely fragrance of the Cherry Blossom tree, but if this is how it would smell, I am sure I will fall head over heels in love with it. That would be a beautiful sight for the eyes and the aroma equivalent for the nose.

I have used Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion during both summers and winters and it has moisturized my skin well. I don’t have extremely dry skin, so this fit the bill well. The body lotion is very lightweight and easily sinks into the skin. It is non-oily and non-greasy thus making it perfect to be used all year round. The packaging is typical of most Bath & Body Works products and comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a flip open cap. I have taken this along on my vacations and never had to worry about the product leaking in my bag. Every single time the product impresses me by leaving my skin super soft and smooth.

If there was one thing I don’t like so much about Bath & Body Works products is that they aren’t easily available in India and also if they are, they are priced way too high. Here is a thing to remember, add this to your US shopping list and you can add multiple products for the same price you would pay in India. What are you waiting for? Pick up your phone and add this to your To Buy list!

The Good

  • Sweet floral fragrance
  • Sinks into the skin easily
  • Makes skin soft and smooth
  • Sturdy easy to use packaging
  • Contains Shea Butter and Jojoba oil which have great moisturizing properties

The Bad

  • Some may find the fragrance strong
  • Availability can be an issue within India
  • Extremely dry skin may not find it effective

Overall verdict:  4 / 5

Price: $12.50 for 236 ml

  1. Nice review. I think this would be great in summer and I love strong smell in summer. I haven’t used bath and body works products yet. I think I would buy this as I finished my current one.

  2. If you get a chance try visit Bath and body store sometime. It was overwhelming with fragrance (I mean that in a bad way). If you have more liking towards natural essential oil type fragrance then the store smell can give you serious headaches. My husband used to stand outside 50 m away from the store if by chance I paid a visit to this store. Eventually, when I was hooked to ess oils even I could understand his plight. I was a fan of Bath and body when I reached US but now I am not. I have tried this moisturiser I remember. I liked it. The con was it washes away with sweat or splash of water. Well reviewed!!

    1. I’ve never had the opportunity to visit Bath & Body Works stores. If the fragrance is very strong I doubt I’ll enjoy the store visit. My husband hates the fragrance that comes from Lush stores itself, I doubt if he will come anywhere near Bath & Body Works.

  3. My skin has a dry texture even in summers and though I used Body Shop body butter during winters, I think its too greasy for me in this weather. Thank you for recommending this body lotion. I’m certainly going to give it a try!

    1. Thanks Anurima. That’s always an issue for Bath & Body Works products. They are available on Amazon but the price is slightly higher compared to the US.

  4. Hi Sangeeta.I have never tried out Bath and Body works products but I am definitely going to try this one out.I have heard great reviews about their shower gels also.Looks like an impressive one.

    1. I love Body Shop products too. In fact I hoard on them time to time. But off late their rates have skyrocketed and I am trying to pick and choose just a handful of products from TBS I can’t live without.

        1. That’s great Jane. I constantly have relatives or friends coming from the US. I usually them to pick up products from Bath & Body Works.

  5. I have a fragrance mist in this flavour and I love it a lot! 🙂 Looking forward to buy this but I find that the original price is much less than the price at which they sell it on Amazon 🙁

    1. The price is rather on the higher side on Amazon. But unless you have people coming from the US this is your best bet. Moreover, the product will last you a long time.
