One more sleep! The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off…
The best way to experience The Body Shop’s new Fuji Green Tea line is by taking some time to yourself and creating your own custom tea ceremony, which includes 3 steps.
*Yes, as pointed out by Aaron, I am not using Japanese tea cups. But these were so cute and matched perfectly!
STEP 1: CLEANSE & PURIFY
FUJI GREEN TEA EXFOLIATING SOAP – $6 CAD
Made with shea butter and infused with green tea leaves, this exfoliating bar uses walnut shells to lift away dead skin.
This is a fairly standard size bar, 100g, and does an amazing job exfoliating. It’s a bit more gentle than other bars I have used that have walnut shells or other nut-based physical exfoliants, even though this uses walnuts (they must be more finely ground). The scent is light, “green” and not overpowering. There is actually basil in here, giving it a touch of an herbal smell!
STEP 2: DETOX
FUJI GREEN TEA BATH TEA – $20 CAD
This soak is made with Community Fair Trade Aloe Vera and, of course, real green tea leaves. It’s an antioxidant blend that will remove toxins from your skin leaving it healthy and glowing. (infuser sold separately)
There’s real tea in here! It has a very strong scent, again the green floral and herb like the soap, and it really left me skin so soft. I soaked for about 15 minutes, and it honestly took all my muscle cramps away (it was leg day at the gym ugggh).
The best way to use the bath tea is with this infuser ($5 CAD). You just fill it up to the top, screw the lid on, then hang it from your faucet and let the warm water run through. I then let it float around with me in the tub while I “steeped”.
STEP 3: SMOOTH
FUJI GREEN TEA BODY LOTION – $13 CAD
With Sesame Seed Oil as the base, this lightweight hydrator keeps skin smooth and fresh without feeling greasy. There are 3 moisturizers in this line: the Sorbet being the lightest hydrater and the Body Butter being the heaviest. This one is right in the middle. Just smooth, scented skin! (Note: the lotion is actually white, the bottle is tinted green).
I love this whole line! It’s relaxing, unique and leaves me feeling very zen. If you want to see all the other Fuji Green Tea products from The Body Shop, check out my other blog post!
