The Body Shop Wild Cherry Puree Body Lotion Review

Price: – Rs 495/-
Net Quantity: – 250 ml

This is my first post on IMBB and I am really excited!

I have been putting this off for a long time, wondering which product do I start with :p Well I’m finally ready.

This “Wild Cherry “ range smells pretty subtle and mild. I honestly dig fruity smelling products and to be honest I was a tad reluctant to try this because I thought it would be some “syrupy” smelling product. But I was proved wrong! In fact I couldn’t resist this when I tested some on my hand.

What it boasts?

“A lightweight, gel-based body moisturiser, enriched with tantalising wild cherry. Easily absorbed and non-greasy, it nourishes conditions and moisturises the skin to leave it feeling soft and supple. Provides moisturisation that lasts up to 12 hours. “
And it is indeed true to what it states. The lotion is not a heavy gooey one but rather quite lightweight. It quickly penetrates and nourishes the skin .The packaging also makes it ideal to carry around in your hand bag. This light, refreshing lotion is ideal for normal skin,( I would not recommend it for dry skin or oily skin). It’s not very rich so I don’t use it for my body, but rather on my hands.


Made with Passion!
(Please excuse the blurry Picture :p I have typed down what the label says)
“We love ingredients from unexpected sources, like our tantalising wild cherry oil, squeezed from cherries grown on the hills around historic Verona in Italy. We extract the moisturizing oil from the kernels left over from the jam industry. So you could say it’s a story worth a happy ending.”


The unique lock system makes it ideal to carry around in your handbag so you need not worry about it spilling out!


The lotion is this baby pink puree of sweet indulgence 😉


Pros of The Body Shop Wild Cherry Puree Body Lotion:

• The lightweight feel of the puree. It doesn’t feel as though you have lotion on but it defiantly moisturizes (normal skin).
• The lock system makes it ideal to carry about in your handbag.

Cons of The Body Shop Wild Cherry Puree Body Lotion:

• I feel a body lotion is supposed to be more richer (might as well go for the body butters 😛 ) this is quite light and hence not quite ideal for the entire body ;P
• It defiantly does not last for 12 hours.
• The smell is more of the cherry seed than the actual fruit at times.

So on the whole would I go for this product again?

The answer would be a sad no . I would rather try out some other fruit in the puree range! 😀

  1. welcum to imbb marjoire :yahoo: .. wht does ur unique name mean???
    i tried it yesterday at TBS & I hated the smelll.. no offense to any1 but it was just tooooo strong fragrance for me & thru ur review, i feel it wudn’t even have suited my dry skin :nababana: :nababana: .. so rght choice in not picking this up.. :methinks: :methinks:

    1. Heya Nids 🙂
      well “Marjorie” is a medieval variant of Margery, influenced by the name of the herb marjoram. After the Middle Ages this name was rare, but it was revived at the end of the 19th century.” It is also an Old French, Middle English form of Margaret, which means pearl.
      yeah some people with not so dry skin will like this product, its has a very watery consistency too! and the smell dosent last quite long too!

  2. I totally loved strawberry puree! I’m yet to try the wild cherry variant! But yeah u’re right, it’s no good for 12 hours and all..I’m now using their sweet lemon whip! And frankly that’s the best cream ever! Body butters can be used only in the winters, but this whip is soo amazingly moisturizing in other weather conditions!! N yeah, sucha nyc review!! :thumbsup: I’ll do the happy jig for u :yahoo:

    1. Thanx for the jig Sukanya 🙂 hehe!
      the wild cherry body range infact does not smell authentically cherrylicious 🙁
      i tried the bodyscrub and the bodywash too!

    1. I know Cali! in fact i have to be honest! i got it based on the oh so tempting name :p i thought to myself how could they probably go wrong with this one!
      But then again Looks can deceive

  3. Hey is it ideal for carrying around while am travelling? I checked it at The Body Shop Store and ended up not buying this just because of the nozzle!

    1. @Sayani:- if your really keen on it then well it has a lock system on the nozzel..there are directions for “lock” and “open” on it so it would be ideal to carry around in your handbag! 🙂
