Summary
Cherry blossom has to be one of my all time favourite scents and I was pleasant;y surprised when using this as I expected it to be a strong scent like the rest of the bath products, but it was really light and fragrant.
Only a little is used to create masses of a luxurious lather that covers skin really well, leaving a lovely faint hint of cherry blossom on your skin.
Skin does feel slightly softer after use and always follow using a good moisturiser or body butter.
I like the fact they use recycled plastic for their bottles making it environment friendly.

Beautiful subtle fragrance but lacks the moisturisation of others

User Reviews

Strongest points
Beautiful medium consistency opaque pink shower gel that contains no soap or parabens. Beautiful but subtle cherry blossom fragrance which lightly scents the skin. Lathers beautifully and does not dry out the skin or irritate. Attractive plastic bottle with cherry blossom label design and practical flip top lid. A little gel produces masses of lather so excellent value for money
Weakest points
Not as moisturising as some other Body Shop Gels
Summary
I adore cherry blossom and in general it is a quite heady fragrance. I was surprised with this Body Shop product as the fragrance is actually very subtle. None the less it is very authentic albeit it barely there with a subtle musky hints in the background. The colour is the gel is a beautiful opaque pink and the consistency is a medium gel. You only need a small amount to lather beautiful on a body puff and it cleanses beautifully without the addition of soap and harsh chemicals. I found that although this gel produced masses of creamy lather it did not leave my skin feeling as moisturised as with other Body Shop gels so this was a slight disappointment for me. This is a lovely range and the packaging is pretty and indicative to the product, instead of the standard Body Shop plain bottles
