Hieee lovely ladies!!
Its fall!! Sometimes chilly…sometimes warm…the perfect season for indulgences. 🙂
A good fragrance just lifts up your mood!! The smell of soft floral cherry blossom adds to the romance that’s in the air. 😀
Cherry Blossoms are prized for their soft feminine fragrance. Be it the The Body Shop, Bath and Body Works or even Victoria’s Secret, most companies HAVE to have a signature Cherry Blossom line. Somehow this fragrance strikes a chord with the inherent femininity in us ladies.
Today I am writing a review of a lovely Body Cream from Bodycology-The Exotic Cherry Blossom! Let’s see how this body cream fared for me. 🙂
Price: $ 5.99
What the Brand Claims:
Blushing cherry blossom blooms with fragrance to produce a beautiful and radiant scent. For daily rejuvenation, massage the nourishing body cream in circular motion, to reveal softer, lightly scented skin. Consisting of moisturising Shea Butter, Aloe-Vera, Vitamin C and exotic Cherry Blossom Extracts, our formula will leave your skin feeling pampered and smooth.
My experience with Bodycology Exotic Cherry Blossom Nourishing Body Cream:
Since I got this body cream at half the actual price, I really didn’t have high expectations from it. That’s why I would say, given the price, it has turned out to be a really great product.
This body cream comes in a sturdy tube packaging. It has a lovely red packaging with Japanese cherry blossom flowers, kind of very English and …vintage? It really does have an exotic look and feel to it. Also since it’s a tube packaging, it is sturdy, hygienic and easy to use.
The consistency of the cream is medium, neither thick nor runny. It reminds me of Johnson’s baby cream. This body cream gets absorbed very easily and gives a matte finish to the skin. To tell you the truth, I am not a great fan of the finish. I mean you expect the body cream to nourish the skin and give the shine right? Without that you just feel that it is not working!! Still the moisturisation is not bad. The good part is that this cream gets absorbed quickly without leaving any greasy traces. So it can be applied even when in a hurry and it wouldn’t stain clothes.
This body cream does not give intense moisturisation like the TBS /BBW/VS products. It needs to be re-applied every 4-5 hours, but then at this price, you cannot expect much.
The fragrance of this cream though is ahhmaaazing!! It’s light, floral and subtle. It’s like a lingering floral reminder, nothing too strong or chemical-like. All in all, it is a neutral fragrance, that I feel will not bother even those with sensitive noses. I would recommend using it as a daily moisturizer, especially for office boardroom/meetings. However, like the moisturisation, the fragrance doesn’t last long on skin. You will still catch a whiff in your clothes, which is nice. 🙂
One great thing about this cream is that it is free from Parabens! But I can still see loads of chemicals in the ingredient list…not too happy about that either. 🙁
Overall, it is another average product, not disappointing, but not great either. But at this price, it’s fairly OK.
Summing up the Pros and Cons for You:
Pros of Bodycology Exotic Cherry Blossom Nourishing Body Cream:
- It has a clean subtle floral fragrance which will not annoy most people. (Trust me it’s worth buying for the fragrance itself)
- It is inexpensive.
- Free from Parabens.
Cons of Bodycology Exotic Cherry Blossom Nourishing Body Cream:
- I feel it is not moisturizing enough. So dry skinned beauties, might want to give it a skip.
- It is not widely available.
- Fragrance does not last very long-3 to 4 hours tops.
Final Verdict: 3.5/5
