Ever wondered what Sakura in Japanese stands for? Japanese flowering cherry! In Japan, Cherry trees were cultivated for their beauty and adorning the grounds of nobility! Japanese turn out in large numbers outdoors with family and friends celebrating Hanami, traditional cherry blossom viewing party underneath the trees! Sounds great, isn’t it? Wish to join Hanami? The Body Shop was very thoughtful in bringing Hanami to all parts of the world sans Sakura! Come walk with me to know the beauty of Sakura!
Body Shop floral ranges of body butters include Japanese Cherry Blossom, Moroccan Rose and Moringa! Remember, Moringa and Moroccan Rose body butters are strongly flavored! Moroccan Rose smells just like freshly hand-crushed roses! Can you imagine a garden without roses? The scent of Moroccan Rose is accessible to almost everybody under the sky! Moringa is for the different woman in you, but too much can get nauseating!
If you are into mild flavors, try Japanese Cherry Blossom!(price Rs 875 Indian Rupees for 200 ml tub) Doesn’t have over powering fragrance! Very mild, you can hardly pick it up at times! Very magical, people find you smell divine! Lifts up your spirits in a good way, of course! Perfect for day and night! Given a chance to pick one body butter for the life time, I would choose Japanese Cherry Blossom! Personally, I feel Japanese Cherry Blossom fragrance is not so easily dupable! Japanese cherry blossom fragrance is yet to make a debut in the Indian market, which includes bath and body products!
Body butter is an intense moisturizer that can be used on entire body! It is specially formulated to maximize skin hydration! Likely to be used during dry times of the year or when the skin suffers from severe lack of moisture! The ingredients offer the skin both hydration and protection!
Body Shop launched Japanese Cherry Blossom range as a limited edition last spring, but it’s made permanent now! Thanks to the crazy demand! The body butter comes in 200 ml tub! Body butter tubs usually carry a color theme that coordinates with the fragrance! The lid is black with Cherry Blossom accents, the tub kind of coral – dark bubblegum pink!
The product looks almost white, but its pale pink in reality! Consistency is creamy! Sinks easily into skin, thanks to the glycerin formula! It’s very hydrating! Gives a healthy sheen to the skin! Doesn’t leave any greasy residue on the skin! Skin is visibly soft! Apply the moisturizer on damp skin! It helps lock moisturizer better! Japanese Cherry Blossom body butter is a very fragrant moisturizer! Perfume-kind! Claims best for normal skin! Try using in winters for best results! On test drive, the staying power of fragrance was more than 8 hours!
Some of us find wide-mouthed tubs not so user-friendly! You can transfer some into wee plastic or glass jars using a clean spatula for hygienic reasons! Depending on your usage, the 200 ml tub should last you around 7 – 8 months! No harm if more or less!
Japanese Cherry Blossom body butter compliments any mild floral perfume to avoid further chances of fragrance mishap! To maximise the fragrance and skin care benefits, use together with other products from Japanese Cherry Blossom range in a layering regime! Japanese Cherry Blossom range of products include Eau De Toilette, Body Puree, Shower Gel! Japanese Cherry Blossom is luxury personified! Treat you can give yourself once in a while! Makes a perfect valentine!
Key ingredients include Japanese cherry blossom extract, traditionally renowned for its soothing properties! Community Trade organically grown Soya Oil is rich in essential fatty acids! Fatty acids help restore skin’s moisture barrier and are ideal for softening skin! They penetrate skin easily and blend in beautifully with other natural oils! Community Trade Organic Olive Oil effectively smoothes, softens and conditions skin! Glycerin is an effective moisturizer which helps improve softness and maximize hydration!
How was your journey so far? Hope you like it! See you soon, lovelies!
P.S – Product performance varies according to the weather conditions! Use it at your own discretion! I don’t make the rules! Please feel free to choose your own bath and body products!

Ohh. I have this. I love the smell! It is just so dreamy and happy! The BB is okish. But the smell – is really nice. Though it doesn’t seem to last very long on me. Difference in skin probably 🙂
