The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Range



Fuji Green Tea is the refreshing new collection from The Body Shop.

The range harnesses the detoxifying health benefits of green tea and brings you the first body range infused with real green tea leaves.

Green tea is famous for its antioxidant qualities, but unbeknown to me, rather than just drink it, some Japanese women apply it to their skin and bath in it!




It is believed that the tea can help retain moisture and tighten pores.

Who knew!

The Body Shop have taken things a step further and created the stunning Fuji Green Tea range which has seen experts hand pick the finest shoots to capture the most potent antioxidant powder which is then infused into their products.


 

Nature really does create some pretty cool things right!

In terms of scent, the collection, unsurprisingly possesses a delicate hint of green tea within its fragrant  aroma.

It is a gorgeous, light, refreshing scent which is perfect for spring, and no you don’t end up smelling like a tea bag!




The collection comprises of the following;

Fuji Green Tea Exfoliating Soap £4
Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub £14
Fuji Green Tea Body Butter £13 (Pictured)
Fuji Green Tea Body Sorbet £8
Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion £8
Fuji Green Tea Body Wash £4 (Pictured)
Fuji Green Tea Eau de Cologne £16
Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea £12
Fuji Green Tea Bath Infuser £5




The Fuji Green Tea range is available now from The Body Shop.

Sanctuary Spa Hot Sugar Scrub



I love the feeling of my skin after a good exfoliation.

Be it a facial or full body, the result of silky, smooth, soft skin is definitely addictive!

Gently buffing away dry, dead skin to reveal healthy, fresh skin feels fabulous.




Until recently, my all time favourite body exfoliation was the Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub and I never thought I'd find a product that I loved as much.

That was, until I tried the Sanctuary Spa Hot Sugar Scrub.

I'm in love with this product!





This famous, thermal hot sugar scrub deeply cleanses and refines your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and looking beautiful.

Applied to damp skin, this award-winning treatment provides a warming burst of heat (thanks to its thermal zeolite) as you massage, helping to open your pores for a deep but gentle cleanse.

The detoxifying kaolin clay then draws out impurities while the fine organic sugar buffs away dead skin cells, leaving you with a velvety soft bod that smells like a luxury spa!





Your hands even get in on the act and are left feeling lovely and soft too, which is a bonus!

This scrub is a real treat and feels like it should cost a lot more than £12.

My only criticism is that it doesn't come in a bigger pot as I use LOADS of this stuff!





If you've not tried this yet, I highly recommend that you do, you won't regret it!

Sanctuary Spa Hot Sugar Scrub is available from Boots and costs £12.

Kiko Lip Scrub Stick



Sometimes, a beauty product comes on the market that you never thought you'd want, need or use yet it turn out to become of your must have items.

This happened to me and Kiko’s new Lip Scrub (£5.90).




Designed to prep your lips for enhanced colour application, this exfoliation gently buffs away dry, chapped skin on your lips, revealing a softer, smoother pout.

Think of it a bit like a primer- with a great primer as a base, your make up lasts longer and stays looking fab. Well, the same can be said for priming your lips!




Packaged in a handy stick form and looking a lot like a regular lip balm, this exfoliator is infused with sugar and natural crystals which when applied to your lips in gentle, circular movements help remove any dry skin which could ruin your look.

Buff away until you've achieved your desired result (ie until all the dead, dry skin has gone) and remove any of the excess product with a tissue.




Slather your lips In a balm to moisturise them or apply your desired lippie and voila! Beautiful  healthy lips are yours!

You no longer need to muck about with messy products or resort to brushing your lips with a toothbrush (as I may have done!) to achieve soft lips, just give their handy lip scrub a go!
 


Kiko’s new Lip scrub is available now and costs £5.90 but is currently available on their website with 30% off for £4.10.

StormFlower Eau de Toilette



StormFlower Eau de Toilette  is the second fragrance from the gorgeous Cheryl Fernandez Versini.

Following on from the hugely popular StormFlower Eau de Parfum, this fragrance offers a lighter take on the original while still retaining its unique, captivating feminine scent.




Her signature bottle has been transformed into a lighter brighter version, with the palest blush of rose gold adorning the perfect flower which sits atop.

The intriguing and unique scent is created with top notes of lemon and spicy bergamot and heart notes of floral Rose, peony and jasmine in bloom.




Warm and inviting base notes of sandalwood, white musk and indulgent vanilla complete this enchanting fragrance.

While I loved the strong, headiness of the original StormFlower, this new EDT edition offers a more wearable, daytime scent, perfect for Spring.




I'm a sucker for Rose gold too so I love starting the pretty bottle on my dressing table!

StormFlower EDT is available now and costs £27 for 50ml or £37 for 100ml. 




£100,000 from the proceeds of the sale of this fragrance will be donated to Cheryl's Trust who are working in partnership with The Prince's Trust to help young people realise their potential and get their lives back on track.
