Hello ladies! Well summers are here in their full on might and its seriously getting hotter day by day. This weather takes a tough toll on my skin because one, the air is super dry and it takes away all moisture from the skin and two, if I use my regular body lotion, it starts feeling heavy. So I reached out to my favourite body lotion for summers. I had a lot of it left from the last time and I am pretty sure its going to get over soon. So lets go through The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion Review.

In Detail The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion Review and My Experience
In summers we all look for light moisturisers and this one is my all time hero. It comes in a transparent plastic pump dispenser packaging. The pump has a rotate to lock mechanism in case we want to travel with it. The labels have this soft pink cherry blossom flowers which just looks super cute on the bottle.
The best thing about this body lotion is its consistency which is very thin and light weighted. If you take a look at the swatches, you will know exactly what I am talking about. Its very easy to apply on the skin and gets absorbed quickly. It makes the skin soft, supple and moisturised. It gives this slight cooling sensation everytime I apply it which I totally love.
This gives my skin enough moisturisation to deal with the dry summer heat and at the same time does not feel oily or greasy at all. I notice no increased sweating after I apply this unlike most other body lotions in summers. It has this beautiful soft cherry blossom fragrance, and it lingers around for around a couple of hours. The scent is really mild to moderate so if you are into strong fragrances, you might want to give the matching EDT a try.

2. Though this is an excellent moisturiser for the skin in summers, I advice using something extra like a hand cream on palms and soles.
