The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Shower Gel

Guest Review by Kritika (Medium Skin tone, COmbination Oily)

Who loves Bread Jam?! Anyone? Anyone? I for one love Bread Jam, which reminds me that my Orange Marmalade is over, need to buy another one. Hmm..why am I discussing my grocery list over here you say? Well, then let me introduce you to Body Shop’s Cranberry Joy shower gel. It smells like jam, somebody gimme a loaf of bread now, im gonna spread some Cranberry Joy on one :D
What Body Shop says:

Soap-free, lather-rich and bursting with the scent of fresh berries. With cranberry extract and Community Trade Honey.

I think it was a part of last year’s holiday season. It definitely smells like holiday season, candies and sweets and jams. Haha. You know I had to put jams in there! The fragrance is amazing, fruity and just the right amount of sweet. It might smell a little too sweet when you take a whiff from the jar to some, but trust me it wont be that strong once you re done showering. The fragrance doesn’t lasts too long after showering, it’ll perhaps last longer if used with the body cream and the fragrance mist.
I have the smaller version of this because I needed something particularly small to travel with. I’ve had two successful trips with this and not once have I had an ‘Oops’ moment. The cap shuts of firmly and there re hardly any chances of any spillage. After a week and a half of usage, I still have about 3/4th of the bottle left. So yes, you can definitely take this little cutesy bottle for a long trip of yours.

It leaves the skin feeling pretty clean and it gives a very very slight cooling sensation. Barely noticeable infact, I happened to notice only during the first use. I just wish the fragrance would last longer. Sigh. Wishes wishes. But all in all, another great product from Body Shop!

Overall Verdict: A

Price: Rs.275 for 60ml of Qty.

Recommendation:  The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Shower Gel smells like the holiday season- of candies, and treats and yes, cranberry Jams !! Its a shower gel that is a delight to use, and great to travel with- i only wish the fragrance would last longer, which Body Shop claims it will if you use it with the Shower Cream an Body Mist of the same variant.

I love mix fruit Jam. Jam and butter are something I cnt live without. Daily breakfast :-)
I dnt prefer sweet smell for shower gels and body lotions

Ooh bread jam and butter reminds me of school days :D
Yeah? I love the sweet, fruity, candy like scent..I also love the warm, vanilla like scents..flowery scents, not too much :P

:-) I like more of flowery fragrance, rather anything mild. I get headache with strong fragrance within a minute. I am allergic to perfumes :-(


Kritika October 27, 2012 at 2:29 pm

I know someone who is allergic to perfumes too and o was like, eh is hat possible?! But with my sinuses acting up, I wonder if I’ll end up being allergic to perfumes too :(


Shikha October 27, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I dnt have sinus or asthama problem, its just that I am sensitive to fragrance. Strong fragrance get into my head and cause headache

For the last couple of years I have been using TBS shower gels only and I am so in love with them. I picked up two full sized bottles one of candied ginger and one Cranberry joy. They were at 50% discount. I totally love them both!!! Especially the color.
But as you say, the smell doesn’t last too long which is a pity


Kritika October 27, 2012 at 2:36 pm

I’m so going to pick up their full sized bottles this time!! And candied ginger? Sounds lovely!! How is that one? I automatically get drawn to all the warm fragrances during winters, will try that out :D
