Review: Bath and Bodyworks Japanese Cherry Blossom Lotion

During the winter I use heavy duty boring lotion for my dry skin, so I love when spring comes along and I can use something lighter and yummier. For spring I love a light lotion with a sweet springy scent. Nothing too overpowering, and of course it still has to keep my skin soft......




What: Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion
How Much: $9.50
Where to buy: Bath and Body Works
Review: I've been a Bath and Body Works fan since high school. What's not to like? Actually, you know what I don't like? Everytime I find a new favorite, they discontinue it. Bleh to them. Of course, that means I'm always discovering new scents and favorites. I like to pretend I don't like floral scents, but my favorite perfume is Marc Jacobs - a Gardenia scent. And now I can add another great floral. This one is very light and smells like a day in spring. Not a day in the garden with hundreds of flowers fighting for your attention. Not a summer day when the smell of flowers is sickeningly sweet. Instead its just a hint of "mmm what is the fresh scent?" And like every other BBW lotion, its intensely moisturizing without being heavy. Of course, now that I've told you all how much I love it, they're sure to pull this scent off the shelves and stick it with my juicy pear and ginger lime...

  2. Oh, they probably will pull it. I have had the same problem with them. In high school, my teacher even gave me extra credit to write to the company and complain. Never got anything back....bastards.

  3. I love the Cherry Blossom scent. I have it as body cream and shower wash. I think my skin tends to be on the sensitive side because I can not use too much of either.

  7. Curses BBW! They always pull the faves. Makes me feel like I have to stock up and spend a bazillion dollars when I find one I like.

  10. the only thing i ever buy at BBW these days is anti-bacterial gel and soap. i should give this stuff a shot, but usually i'm running in and out as fast as i can, because all those scents all mixed together in one small space usually gives me a huge headache.

  11. I had that problem over 10 years ago, when they discontinued the scents I loved. If you write or call to them, they can sell you what they have left.

  12. This is a serious question:
    Does it smell like Marc Jacobs? I can't imagine it's a substitute for my MJ parfum that lasts for days, but I'd like to know if it smells the same. Maybe I can spend less on the lotion and eau de parfum.

  13. Amanda - this smells nothing like Marc Jacobs - sorry! I was just using that as an example of a floral scent I like. MJ is all good and gardenia-y, this smells nowhere near as good.
