Green tea has long been one of my favourite scents. There's something about it's natural, refreshing smell that instantly calms and soothes me. Anything green tea scented/flavoured is a winner in my books. In fact, I have a rather odd, bordering on obsessive addiction to green tea flavoured jelly beans, they are amazing... I wish I had some now...
However, I digress! When I found our recently that The Body Shop had released their new Fuji Green Tea Range, I instantly knew I would love it and I wasn't disappointed. I was initially drawn to the Bath Tea. I thought it was such an interesting idea as there is also a little Infuser in this range, so you simply add a handful of the bath tea to the diffuser and allow it to steep in the warm water! I never imagined bathing in tea would be such a lovely experience but some how this makes it totally acceptable. The bath tea itself is a mix of bath salts and green tea leaves, which can be added to the bath without the infuser, however, unless you're a fan of that gritty, bath salt feeling once they've all settled to the bottom, I would definitely add the infuser to your list as it's completely mess and pain free!
The scent of this range is beyond gorgeous. I love to apply the Body Sorbet after my bath which makes the scent last a lot longer on your skin. It's especially nice when you want to moisturise but don't have time to wait around for it to dry. It's very fast absorbing and I've always found the Body Sorbets to be especially nice in the summer as they're so cooling and refreshing.
As you may know, i've been a long time lover of The Body Shop's Body Butters, and i've probably tried out even scent over the years, so I was very pleased to see this in the range as well. It works great for a more intensive moisturising treatment, yet still doesn't take a lifetime to sink into the skin.
I'm really impressed with The Body Shop's latest offerings, have you tried anything from this range yet? Which product do you like the look of most?
