I like Bodyshop products however find that they are generally a little over priced for my liking especially when they do great offers on their websites now and again and always have decent sales too. Before Christmas I picked up some items in the sale and ended up getting a 60ml bottle of this body lotion for £1.50.
The product comes in a soft plastic bottle with a flip top lid on it, the lid is pretty stiff to begin with but after a couple of uses it is fine. On the front of the bottle you have the Bodyshop logo and then the name of the product along with a picture at the bottom of some lovely looking cherries.
On the back of the bottle you have the information that Bodyshop are against animal testing and support community trade along with a list of ingredients and contact details for the Bodyshop.
On opening the bottle you can't smell the product, once you give a little squeeze the product comes out of the bottle easily as it is pretty runny. The product is pale pink in colour and smells nice and fruity but I wouldn't say it smells very strongly of cherries.
The lotion rubs in very easily and spreads over your skin well so you don't have to use too much of it, once it has been used the skin feels a little clammy for a few minutes but once worn off the skin is nice and smooth although the smooth feeling doesn't last for very long.
I would give this product 4 stars from 5 as it could smell stronger of cherries and the smooth feeling could last for longer but it is a decent product which smells nice and is easy to apply.
A little while ago the body shop had a sale on but not only did they have this sale but they also released a code which gave you 50% items, even those included in the sale. I thought I would take the opportunity to purchase some early Christmas presents for some people and I ordered a whole range of wild cherry products. One of the items I ordered was the wild cherry puree body lotion and when it arrived the bottle had leaked all over the box and although everything else was salvageable the body lotion had around a third missing so I decided to keep this for use myself and this is my review.
The wild cherry puree body lotion comes packaged in a clear tub which looks much like a hand wash in many respects with its pump at the top. On the front you have a label featuring the body shop logo, the product information and a picture of some juicy looking cherries. There is also some information about how the cherries are sourced for the product which is a nice little touch I think. The bottle is recyclable which you would expect from the body shop and the product should be used within twelve months of opening.
The actual body lotion is a lovely pink colour which you can see through the bottle. The bottle contains 250ml of the lotion and it cost me just £1.24 in the sale which I am sure you will agree is wonderful value!
Using the body lotion is really simple as you just pump it out through the hand pump at the top of the bottle. I find this a useful feature as some body lotions can be pour out and be a bit tricky to get the right amount. With this product I just pump a couple of pumps at a time so I don't really end up using too much. What I noticed first about the lotion was the gorgeous cherry scent that it has and I would certainly say that if you like cherry scents this will be one for you as it really is lovely. The lotion is quite thin but it is easy to rub in to the skin and although it feels quite wet at first this is only for a very short time and then it leaves lovely soft feeling skin. The scent lingers on the skin for a few hours too which is nice as it is a sweet and fresh scent which I personally think is nice.
What I like about this body lotion is that it is quite lightweight and is absorbed so easily by the skin. When I have a bath I do like to apply lotions afterwards but I hate that sometimes it feels like forever before I can get dressed! With this product it is not a problem and I like that. The product says it is for normal skin types and my skin is probably normal/dry on my body and it works well for me. Don't get me wrong, my skin doesn't feel quite as well treated as if I apply a heavy body butter but for me body butters are a more luxurious treat for skin anyway. For day to day use this puree body lotion is great and I would certainly recommend trying it should it be available in stores!
Thank you for reading my review!
Today I'm writing about the Wild Cherry Puree Body Lotion by The Body Shop.
I really like The Body Shop products! They usually smell fabulous, do wonders for my skin and are always good present for friends - almost everyone knows the brand and appreciates it! I also like the fact that they don't do animal testing and support projects similar to Fair Trade! L'Oréal may have bought the brand, but it as far as I could find out it hasn't changed a thing.
The products are even great for sensitive skin and well worth their money. They are available in almost every scent available. No matter if you want strawberry, lemon, olive or poppy seed - The Body Shop has it all.
I had a little 60ml bottle of this lotion. The bottle is see-through and made of plastic which can be recycled. I got the small bottle because I love trying out many different products instead of using the same one for a long time.
In English and French you can read the product's description on the front of the bottle. The lotion's name is given and it says that the lotion is slightly cooling and moisturizing. Below the description there is a picture of red cherries.
On the back of the bottle it is stated that Body Shop is against animal testing. It is also stated that the product contains brazil nut extract from the amazonas region as well as organic soy oil from Brazil. Both come from Community Trade projects.
The ingredients are also listed and the manufacturer's address is given.
The lotion is light pink and neither too solid nor too thin. It is easy to get it out of the bottle and applying it to your skin works well.
The lotion's scent is very fruity and sweet. I'm sure some people will find it to be too sweet, but I really like it. It really smells like cherries and the scent stays in your skin in a subtle but really nice way. People around me noticed the scent on my and really liked it! So if you're not totally up against sweet scents, you'll like this.
Effect on skin
I believe this lotion is really good for your skin. It moisturises well and makes the skin soft to the touch. I think that's all you could want from a good lotion. The skin stays moisturised for a long time, so you don't have to re-apply throughout the day.
The lotion was quickly absorbed by my skin and doesn't leave my legs sticky. I had the "Strawberry Puree Lotion" a while ago and it really left my skin feeling slightly sticky - but this one doesn't to it and I'm glad. I didn't really have the urge to wash my hands after applying.
How long will the bottle last?
I found this lotion to be pretty normal in it's lasting. I didn't need too much of it to moisturize arms and legs, but ti won't last you for ages. A 60ml bottle should be enough for applying it all over your body a few times.
Aqua, Glycine Soja Oil, Propanediol, Glycerin, Bertholletia Excelsa Nut Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Prunus Avium Seed Oil, Cyclomethicone, Parfum, Carbomer, Propylene Glycol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Benzophe.
Right now 250ml can be bought for just £3.00 at thebodyshop.co.uk, which is really cheap. Usually, it would cost you £8.00. Of course you can also get it at regular The Body Shop places.
I liked this lotion. It smells sweet and natural and wild cherry scent is just perfect for summer! I aso appreciate that The Body Shop does not do animal testing. The products are always really good for my skin and smell great and this one was no exception.
