Hi there! Not too long ago I told you what I think about Positively Fruity’s body washes. And now that I’ve tried the matching body lotions, I can tell you what I think about these products as well.
So here they are – Positively Fruity Smells Like Sunny Strawberries, Smells Like Wild Cherries, and Smells Like Tropical Showers. These body lotions share a few qualities – they all contain glycerin and aloe leaf juice which is nice. They’re a bit sticky, but they leave my skin moisturised for hours. Now let’s get to the scents!
Smells Like Sunny Strawberries hardly smells of anything. If you look for a body moisturiser with a long-lasting strawberry scent, look elsewhere because this isn’t it. Compared to the lovely body wash, this body lotion is quite a let down.
Smells Like Wild Cherries smells faintly of cherries. I was hoping this lotion would smell gorgeous – but the cherry scent is hardly noticeable. It’s better than the strawberry lotion, but unfortunately that doesn’t mean much.
In terms of intensity, Smells Like Tropical Showers is the best of the three. However, the scent is still quite faint. And if I hadn’t tested the other two lotions first, I’d probably complain about the lack of fragrance in this lotion.
All in all, I think I wouldn’t recommend the body lotions. They’re decent moisturisers, but the fragrances are hardly noticeable at all. Priced at £1 these Positively Fruity Body Lotions look like they’re good value, but they come in small 150ml tubes only. So they’re not really that good a deal if you keep in mind that Poundland stocks branded body lotions and body butters (i.e. I Love…, Vaseline, etc) in larger bottles or tubs – for the same price…

Hi there! I found these super cute looking Positively Fruity Body Washes at my local Poundland the other day. The tubes were sealed, so I couldn’t have a sniff. But they looked so cute I just had to have them! I found three fragrances – Smells Like Sunny Strawberries, Smells Like Wild Cherries, and Smells Like Tropical Showers.
Before I tell you about the fragrances, let me mention a few things the three body washes have in common: I think they’re quite thin. So be careful to avoid spilling them all over the place. I had to place the tubes in the corner in my shower – upside down! Oh, and the screw lids aren’t very practical…
What I love about these body washes is that they’re not drying at all. They’re gentle and they actually feel moisturising. But unlike some of the heavier shower creams (i.e. Dove), these body washes make me feel refreshed and clean. Thumbs up! And now let’s discuss the fragrances. 🙂
Smells Like Sunny Strawberries smells sweet and fruity – like sunny strawberries! I think the strawberry fragrance is quite authentic and not overpoweringly sweet. Very well done!
Smells Like Wild Cherries is my favourite of the three. It really smells of wild cherries. Again, very authentic. And much better than higher end products costing ten times as much. This one’s going to be a definite spring and summer beauty staple!
Smells Like Tropical Showers is sunny, sweet and tropical! It reminds me of gummy bears and jelly beans – minus the sugar. The coconut isn’t very noticeable (I think that’s great). All in all, a very nice and enjoyable fragrance!
Positively Fruity Body Washes are available as 200ml tubes for £1 each at Poundland. Now my local Poundland has more products from this range – bath salts, cosmetics bags and body lotions. I’ve now bought the body lotions as well, and I’ll try them shortly. So it won’t be long until I tell you what I think about the matching body lotions.
