It’s still summer on the other hemisphere and The Cut noticed that a lot of cherries are spreading across fashion pieces. We’d also like to think of the possibility that this fruity trend will extend to beauty products. If watermelon took the pedestal last year, then it’s likely that cherries can do the same.
According to Style Craze, cherries contain antioxidants and they’re good sources of vitamins A, B, C, and E. These will help in removing free radicals on the skin, as well as give you a healthy glow. This fruit also has melatonin which regulates your sleeping pattern, hence, it’s beneficial to your skin health since you’ll be well-rested.
Whether you want to reap the benefits or you’re a fan of cherry scent, here are the products you need to check out.
The classic cherry-almond scent is like dessert on the skin because of how sweet-smelling it is. This lotion is formulated with a “Hydralucence” blend which illuminates and hydrates normal to dry skin. Available at Watsons.
Glossier’s cult-favorite universal salve is loaded with antioxidants and natural emolients that help nourish your lips and skin. Cherry is known for its sheer red tint and fruity scent and flavor. Available on Calyxta.
True to its name, this all-natural body scrub is made from goat’s milk, oat extract, acerola cherry, and probiotics.

Another bath essential you should try is this cherry-scented bath bomb from Bomb Cosmetics. It’ll give your bath water a pink tint and it contains glitter to give your skin an extra glisten. It’s also made with shea butter and pure cocoa for moisturization, and the scent is fruitier with the addition of orange and bergamot essential oils. Available at select Beauty Bar branches.
