We all know how good is green tea for our health and the anti-oxidants present in it makes it a great aid to prevent aging! I personally love green tea and I sip at least one every day. Sometimes I make it 4 cups, and that usually depends. 😀 Let me quickly mention some health and beauty benefits of green tea.
Health and Beauty Benefits of Green Tea
I thought why not throw some light on benefits of green tea before coming to the review part. This would be a good to know information for you and those who already know, can skip it and go right at the review part. 🙂

We all know that green tea has antioxidant qualities. With its detoxifying health benefits, green tea has been revered for over 400 years in social and cultural activities, including the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
But did you know that some Japanese women apply it to their skin and bathe in it? It’s a skincare secret that’s been part of beauty regimes for generations, believed to help retain moisture and tighten pores.
The Body Shop has taken this knowledge a step further, creating Fuji Green Tea™ range, the first body range infused with real green tea leaves and their benefits. They’ve been picky though, quite literally. Their green tea comes from the heartland of Japan, the pristine Mount Fuji region. Handpicked finest shoots loaded with potent antioxidant power, infused in this new range to replenish and refresh with pure moisture for healthier-feeling skin.
I have been using the body butter and body scrub from this range since quite a long time now and I today I am going to share my experience with them. Let’s start with The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter.

My Experience with the body butter!
I am totally in love with this body butter!! It is such a great moisturizing product which leaves your skin feeling refreshed and alive! The texture of the body butter is amazingly smooth and light, yet it is heavy enough to keep the skin hydrated all day long! It is a rich product which really feels light on the skin. Doesn’t make you feel greasy and gets absorbed easily.
The body butter has a super lovely scent to it! When you smell the product from the tub it will open up your senses! I don’t know how to describe it but its sweet, fresh, smell like leaves. You have to smell it yourself to understand what I mean. I have an extremely dry skin and this body butter keeps my skin hydrated for all day long! I am pretty sure it will be amazing in winters as well. So yes all you dry to oily skin beauties can go for it, as its light yet hydrating.
I would prefer to use this body butter in the months from September to March. These months are ideal for me for this body butter. I had no negative experience with this product, its certainly amazing and is my top favorite from The Body Shop now!
As I mentioned above I am going to do it again. I am totally in love with this body butter!! It is a great moisturizing product which leaves your skin feeling refreshed and alive! It is rich yet very light on skin. It would not make your skin look greasy. I love the scent of this product and can’t stop myself sniffing the product again and again!!

My Experience with the Body Scrub!
The first thing I noticed about this scrub was its consistency. Its like jelly! A wobbly jelly!! I really love playing around with it for a minute or two whenever I use. 😀 It has small white and big green colored scrub particles. The scrub smells exactly like the body butter and I really love the smell! Its fresh and really sweet!
Coming to its scrubbing performance, it scrubs nice! The scrub particles do the justice to the body skin. They are neither too harsh nor too soft. They are just right and certainly remove some dead skin and make the skin smoother after use. On its regular use I noticed that my skin was shinier and smoother, looked healthy. The reason behind is that when the dead skin is removed the moisturizer or the body butter we use gets absorbed into the skin more efficiently and works better and that doubles the effect of the same, leading to a beautiful smooth and lustrous skin!
The scent of the scrub is not very strong but it does stays for a couple of hours on the body. I like the scent so much that I don’t want to lose it so I like layering the scent by using body scrub first and then applying the body butter afterwards. I love it and the scent stays on for about 4-5 hours, depending on your physical activity, as the sweat might wash it away.
I really love the scrub as well. It scrubs away the dead skin leading to lustrous and smoother skin and smells amazingly well!! I like to use it twice a week and I have noticed great results. I would certainly recommend this product to everyone!! Its a must for dry skin people!
