Green tea has become really popular in the health world lately, with endless amounts of benefits for detoxifying your body. If it can do that to your body, imagine what it can do for your skin.
Last night I popped along to the Fuji Green Tea Ceremony in The Body Shop to celebrate their new range. Taken from Mount Fuji in Japan, the new range is infused with green tea and packed full of antioxidants. Japanese women have been using green tea on their skin for generations, believed to keep skin moisturised and to tighten pores. Now we can finally try it out for ourselves!
Even the smell of the body butters and mists had me feeling relaxed and refreshed last night. I couldn’t stop myself from dipping my finger in whatever I could and smelling every product I could see. There was threading, manicures and makeup being done, as well as healthy snacks like cabbage wraps and, of course, green tea to drink.
The most exciting product in the range, in my opinion, is the Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea and infuser. If you know me, you’ll know that I nearly constantly have a cuppa beside me wherever I go. A green tea bath? That’s something I could get used to! You just pop some of the rice-like grains into the infuser and let it steep into your bath to get a gorgeous scent and gorgeous skin.
I’m dying to try out the body scrub too, which literally makes me relaxed at the scent. I think I’ll have to pop back in and pick up the Eau de Cologne and Body Butter when the range launches just in time for Paddy’s Day!
No beauty or makeup obsessive I know has anything like this in their stash – it’s definitely a range to get excited about!
Thanks to the lovely ladies at Revolve PR and The Body Shop Grafton Street for the wonderful event, it was so much fun and so great to meet other bloggers!
