The Cherryish Body Scrub is a brand new Lush product from the 2018 Valentine’s range. Although it has been labeled up as a body scrub, it is in fact the perfect mix of both a body scrub and a moisturising body butter. It does a brilliant job at both hydrating and exfoliating your skin ALL at the same time. Containing a long list of skin loving ingredients, Cherryish has gone down a storm within the Lush Community.
Last year Lush released a similar product to Cherryish called the Scrubee body butter. Scrubee was a hugely successful product, I can see exactly why Lush decided to create more just like it.
I admit that when I first see the Cherryish I wasn’t sure on it but once I had tried it, I knew it was going to be yet another best seller. Currently there is a rumour bouncing around that the Cherryish body scrub won’t be retiring once the Valentine period ends, instead it will stay on as a permanent product just as Scrubee did last year. I have my fingers crossed that it does stay!
Cherryish is jam packed full of skin soothingly fabulous ingredients. When I say jam packed I really do mean jam packed. it’s hard to believe that so many ingredients are in this gorgeous body scrub. The main ingredient is the fair trade cocoa butter and alongside that, Cherryish also includes, almond oil, coconut oil, fresh apple pulp, vegan white chocolate, sea salt, dried cherries and ground cherry stones too. It really is a ‘chocolate and cherry delight’, the cocoa butter soothes the skin while the ground cherry stones exfoliate the skin.
I love how gentle Cherryish is on your skin, its level of gentleness doesn’t compromise on how well it scrubs and buffs your skin either. This is a huge bonus for those, like me, who have sensitive skin. Every ingredient that is in Cherryish has been chosen for a reason and this shows during use.
Cherryish fits into your hand perfectly, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it got to work too. With minimum effort I was moisturising and exfoliating my skin in no time at all. I didn’t have to lather it up, it just started working as soon as I started to rub it onto my wet skin.
I wasn’t sure if I’d like Cherryish at first purely because it was a ‘cherry’ product, I’m not a huge fan of cherries but the Cherryish body scrub has changed my perspective. (That and the cherry drop sweets!). I have never got on with any other cherry based Lush product so Cherryish was a more than welcome surprise. I would go as far as to say that I like the Cherryish body scrub much more than I do the Scrubee body butter. This, I did not expect at all.
My most favourite thing about Cherryish is that it isn’t anywhere near as greasy as other body scrubs and butters that I have used before now. Cherryish soaks in to your skin very quickly while also keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy, hydrated and not at all clammy. Clean up after using Cherryish is also effortless. A quick rinse and all of the debris (not that you get much) rinses away.
After use, my skin looked and felt velvet like and did so for the next 3 to 4 days. Cherryish has a soft cherry fragrance, with a hint of sugar sweetness which I am guessing is the white chocolate. The chocolate element of it wasn’t at all apparent to me until I started using it, wow is the first word that sprang to my mind. Its scent is subtle but lasts, I could still identify it on my skin the next day which is rare for a Lush product that has such a gentle scent. I totally recommend Cherryish, for newbie Lushies or long-time Lushies, it’s sure to impress everyone!
