Skin type: Normal to dry
Welcome back to my blog! Nykaa recently launched its Wanderlust Cherry Blossom Range that includes a variety of skincare products. I picked up 2 items from this collection and the one that I am reviewing today is the body lotion. So let’s get started and see how this one fared out for me. Keep reading…
What The Brand Claims: Every picture you clicked in Japan had a tiny little cherry blossom peeking in. It was like your pictures were incomplete without this cherry blossom. You left the country, but this little flower never left you. And now we have plucked it and put it in your bottle. It’s like a love letter to you from Japan.
Packaging: Nykaa has done a great job with the packaging! The lotion comes in a pretty pink colored bottle that is solid as well as sturdy. It has a lock-in pump mechanism that makes it convenient to use. All the important details such as date of manufacturing, date of expiry, net product volume, ingredient list, MRP and directions to use are clearly mentioned. All in all, the packaging is beautiful, hygienic-to-use as well as travel friendly!
My Experience With The Product: Nykaa Wanderlust Japanese Cherry Blossom body lotion is white in color and has a somewhat thick and creamy consistency. It spreads beautifully on the skin and blends in quickly. However, if some extra product is applied, then it needs to be massaged properly in order to get completely absorbed. Anyways, the formula is lightweight and non-greasy and feels comfortable on the skin.
It effectively moisturizes the skin and leaves it soft, smooth and nourished. I feel this lotion would work best for someone with normal to dry skin and is a good pick for the winter season. Coming to the fragrance, it has a prominent floral scent that lingers on for a long time. In fact, it does not really settle down and can be overpowering for sensitive noses. The product can be easily found on Nykaa’s website as well as at Nykaa stores.

Do I Recommend This? Nykaa Wanderlust Japanese Cherry Blossom body lotion has a smooth and creamy texture that quickly gets absorbed into the skin. It effectively does its job and leaves the skin soft, supple and moisturized. The formula is lightweight and non-greasy and feels comfortable. It has a prominent floral scent that lingers on for a long time and would be a great pick for the winter season.
All in all, I would say that this is a great offering from the house of Nykaa and is definitely worth trying out. However, since I personally prefer mildly-scented skincare products, I would not be repurchasing this. The fragrance is quite overpowering for me!
