There’s nothing quite like enjoying a cup of high quality green tea, especially on a chilly weekday night after a long day at work. Apart from being commonly known for its anti-oxidant and detoxifying benefits, did you know that some Japanese women apply it to their skin and bathe in it? Apparently, it has been a skincare secret that has been part of beauty regimes for healthy skin maintenance!
The Body Shop has hence taken this secret a step further, creating the Fuji Green Tea™ range to allow you to bathe in green tea! As the name suggests, the finest shoots have been hand-picked by experts in the Mount Fuji region in order to capture the potent anti-oxidants.
The range consists of a variety of body care products infused with real green tea leaves that is destined to leave you the 3 Rs: Rejuvenated, Reinvigorated and Refreshed!
The Fuji Green Tea™ ritual begins with an indulging bath time with its new innovative product, the Bath Tea (S$39.90) and Bath Infuser (S$12.90). Inspired by the Japanese Tea Ceremony, the bath tea and infuser create a detox tea bath for your body, cleansing and helping to remove toxins. Scoop some bath salts (infused with real green tea leaves) into the infuser and swirl it in your bathtub for that perfect soak off on all your stresses of the day! Not to mention that you can save the trouble from picking out the tea leaves one by one from your bath tub with the infuser! 😉
Complete your shower regime with the Body Scrub (S$36.90) that contains exfoliating beads. It’s one of my favourites in this range, just because it allows you to exfoliate dead skin cells (especially on your back) and it leaves your skin feeling precisely cleansed and rejuvenated! The gel-like texture makes it particularly hydrating for your skin so you can be absolutely at ease and enjoy your scrub!
Mmm, the smell of the Body Butter (S$32.90) just makes me swoon! The fragrance makes me feel so relaxed as I am typing this now. As with The Body Shop’s body butters, this is a must-have in your body care routine for its ultra-hydrating properties! I never understood the hype on the body butters until I first encountered the 2014 Christmas Glazed Apple one. Now that I fully understand, I am sold because it’s so fast-absorbing as well. The nourishing ingredients in this product gives you up to 24-hour full body hydration, and leaves you smelling nicer than a cup of green tea!
I cannot stress how much I love love love this Eau de Cologne (S$28.90)! A spritz of this light zingy-citrus scent after a Fuji Green Tea™ bath ritual is sure to leave you smelling fresh like Spring the whole day! On me, this lasts for more than 5 hours. I could still faintly smell it on me after a long day at work. Honestly, this has got to be the most soothing and reinvigorating scent I have in my stash and I can’t seem to put it down! With a blend of green tea, bergamot, lemon and mandarin top notes with a floral heart of camellia, jasmine and violet, the cologne is refreshingly light and crisp – a classic scent for daytime sophistication.
Other than these amazingly-scented products, the range includes:
- Fuji Green Tea™ Exfoliating Soap 100g – S$8.90
- Fuji Green Tea™ Body Sorbet 200ml – S$21.90
- Fuji Green Tea™ Body Lotion 250ml – S$21.90
- Fuji Green Tea™ Body Wash 250ml – S$14.90
This is definitely one collection not to be missed. If you haven’t already, you NEED to take a whiff of the scent! It is light and refreshing, yet embodies that level of sophistication I can’t quite describe in words. You’ll know what I mean when the scent gets under your nose.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
