The Body Shop is one of my favourite places for body products, especially their yummy body butters! They bring out a few limited edition ranges/scents every now and then, and they recently launched my current favourite: Fuji Green Tea. Did I mention I love green tea? I usually brew myself a cup every evening as I find it very relaxing and calming.
I got the Fuji Green Tea shower gel, body butter and “bath tea” which is a bath salt. The scent honestly brings such a nice home spa atmosphere. When I swatched the body butter in store I thought it was a bit too light for my dry skin but bought it anyway because it smelled so heavenly. After slathering it all over my legs for a week now, I have to say I was totally wrong. It’s not thick and heavy like the Raspberry and Vineyard Peach body butters are (my other favourites for dry skin), but yet miraculously manages to be quite nourishing! The consistency is a bit like soft butter. I love it.
The “bath tea” is a nifty one and I confess was probably the main reason I fell in love with this range. You fill the ‘tea bath infuser’ with the bath salt and lower it into your bath, it even has a nice hook at the end of its chain so you can hook it up and won’t have to look for it at the end of your bath. Isn’t it nifty?? I bought this for a friend as well as she has a bath tub and loves having a soak, and she agrees it smells like proper spa.
This hasn’t been marketed as a limited edition as far as I know and I really hope this is/becomes a permanent part of their collection as I love me some spa time. Seriously. Get on it now!
