I would never say I’m a fan of a green tea fragrance, but somehow The Body Shop has made it fresh and enticing with their new Green Tea collection. I love it, in fact. Not least because they’ve presented the range as a ceremony – I know, I know, it’s marketing – but actually I like the idea of taking time out to just relax and enjoy; it’s something we don’t do enough of as it is, and encouraging an extra five minutes of down time is marketing that I can work with!
The Body Shop Green Tea collection is comprehensive; everything from body sorbet to a bath infuser, but the three products I love are the Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea (£12, with little shreds of green tea); a bath salt based cleansing soak that smells totally calming. You can just chuck it under a running tap (oh sorry.. supposed to be zen here.. sprinkle delicately onto tranquil water) or use the Fuji Green Tea Bath Infuser. Now I’m thinking about it, I’m not sure why you would, but I guess it’s part of the ceremony aspect of it. The Fuji Green Tea Body Butter (£13) has all the usual hydrating powers of any Body Shop Butter – use it post-green tea bath while your skin is still warm and it just melts. Finally, the Fuji Green Tea EDT (£16) had me at konnichiwa because it’s just so fresh, with a citrussy burst of lemon and mandarin. Imagine climbing into cool, clean sheets after that. Perfect!
It almost seems rude not to fully explore the Japanese culture – so I reckon a Friday night saki to finish the job is an ideal hommage to Japanese bathing ceremonies. No, really, I do.

I have been waiting for this range for what seems like a life time! So excited to get my hands on ALL of this!

I love green tea! This sounds right up my street 😀
I love body shop but haven’t tried this range! Can’t wait to try them.
Body Shop seem to be coming out with such nice products at the moment, it would seem I need to take a little trip to go and buy some bits and bobs!
Love Lucy x
Sounds like a lovely range, I’m not a huge fan of drinking green tea but I love it in my beauty products!!!!
The packaging looks beautiful, looks like a trip to the body shop is on the cards 🙂
The marketing behind this is amazing! Not sure if I’d like the scent or not, I’d have to seek out a shop and smell it in person!
This range is RIGHT up my street, I need to check it out! Love the idea of the bath tea!

I’m actually rather excited about this collection and popped into my local Body Shop yesterday to look for it. xD
I love the look of the strainer for some Lush bath bombs.
Really can’t wait.
The body shop at home launches the smell on Tuesday I already have 5 back orders for customers (I’m a rep) and as I type this I’m bathing in it lol xx
