How did you celebrate Holi? I had a great time and I also posted my colorful picture on Instagram. Coming to the post of the day, I have never been into body lotions a lot because I have been a believer that Oils work better on skin but this one lotion ‘Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom‘ has completely altered my perception and I am going gaga over it since the time I first sniffed it.
Quantity : 8 fl oz / 236 mL

It comes in a 236 ml sturdy transparent plastic bottle with silver screw cap that also has a press top outlet to control the amount of product being dispersed. It has pretty pink-red label at the front with some flowers printed on it which I am assuming is how Japanese cherry blossom flower looks like *blum*
I remember that day in the office when I was all into my computer screen trying to run my brain on some piece of code and my friend came to my desk and I was like “Wow ! What perfume are you wearing?” She said it was her Body Lotion and I was like “WHAAAAAAAAaaaTTT *wacko* I could not work after that because the scent was hauntingly sexy. I knew there and then that whatsoever it was, I wanna get it right away.
I am someone who likes strong and classic fragrances and this lotion smells exactly like that – ‘Luxurious’ is the word. It has a blend of floral, spicy and musky aroma to it. As soon as you apply it to your skin you are going to smell amazing but it does not keep you smelling like it throughout the day unless you re-apply as the fragrance lingers for about 3-4 hours and starts fainting afterwards. The smell is strong and might be over bearing if you have sensitive nose and the other problem here is that it is only available online in India ( correct me if I am wrong ) so there is no option for checking it out at in person.
This lotion is pale pink in color and has a medium consistency (neither runny nor thick). It imparts fairly decent hydration, because of the presence of shea butter I believe, but if you have very dry-flaky skin and you are looking something solely to sort this out, No No No , this ain’t your thingiee. However for me it totally works as it provides adequate amount of moisture to my skin upon application without leaving it greasy or sticky. I usually slather it on my entire body after bath and it totally refreshes my senses giving me that feel-good-factor about myself. It spreads easily and gets absorbed within seconds result of which is smooth, supple and nourished skin.
Honestly words cannot describe how much I love this body lotion, its probably the first one I have been hooked to so badly. Its clean and feminine scent drives me crazy.

Do you still need the verdict? Love it to the core. Its gonna make you smell like a diva- amazingly sexy and intoxicating scent + a non-sticky nourishing moisturizer. It is like a cream perfume, you actually don’t need anything with it. You MUST try it if you can handle the strong smell. Girls with dry skin can go for the BBW body butter if they want more hydrating cream ( I haven’t tried it but I am assuming the fragrance would be the same ).
