The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Eau de Cologne and Body Butter Review


Hi Divas, Welcome back to my blog ;-)

I have no idea if the Fuji Green Tea range is a permanent line of the Body Shop or a limited edition range. I decided to do a review on it anyway because this was one of my top scents this Summer and I couldn't pass it up by not sharing it with you. The Fuji Green Tea range is inspired by the Green Tea Ceremony from Japan. This is the art and cultural performance of making green tea. The ceremony is very sophisticated, beautiful and peaceful. These qualities have all been incorporated into the Fuji Green Tea line. The light blue and mint green packaging of these products have a serene, tranquil and classic beauty as the green tea ceremony embraces. The Green Tea leaves are sourced and infused into these products from the Mount Fuji region in Japan. These leaves contain anti- oxidants to rejuvenate and create healthier and radiant skin. The whole range promises to revitalise body and mind with it's Green Tea detoxing leaves. There are about seven products in this line and I have two which are the body butter and eau de cologne.




Fuji Green Tea Eau De Cologne
This is my absolute favourite product from this range. It is a soft body spritzer described as a cologne. The notes include Green Tea, Bergamot, Lemon and Mandarin Orange with hints of Camellia, Jasmine and Violet. This is a gorgeous light citrus scent. It has a very clean and fresh smell which lasts quite a long time. It sprits on the skin pretty strong and the green tea and lemon notes initially hit your senses. After a while the fragrances calms down to a soft green tea and flowery scent. Whenever I wear this I imagine myself to be walking on the heavenly beaches of the Seychelles. I get a feeling of beauty, serenity and being transported to paradise. For me this scent is quite earthy and reminds me of being at the beach or walking in a peaceful nature reserve. I absolutely love this scent and if you are a fan of citrus and fruity fragrances this would be a perfect Summer day body cologne for you.



Fuji Green Tea Body Butter
The body butter comes in the usual 200 ml tub. It promises to give intense 24 hour dehydration and it is suitable for all skin types. The fragrance of this cream is much softer than the cologne. Upon opening the tub the scent is filled with Green Tea, Jasmine and Violet with a hint of citrus. This scent is a lot warmer and more flowery than the body spritzer. I too found that this body butter is a little lighter than the cranberry and apple body butters. It sinks quickly into the skin and it is not dense at all. This is a great summer cream that gives maximum moisture without feeling heavy on the body. Once applied and rubbed into the skin the Bergamot, Lemon and Orange Mandarin notes come through. I guess it depends on the chemistry of your skin to activate the citrus notes. This is a lovely body butter with hydration and a soft summer scent that will leave you feeling refreshed . I found that these body butters can expire or ''go off'' if exposed to excessive heat and air for too long. Be sure to store these products in a cool  place and seal the lid tightly so that the air does not contaminate the product. 


I really like this range. My favourite would definitely be the eau de cologne. I would love to try the body scrub and body sorbet if my local Body Shop store still has stock. Have you tried this range? Let me know below.



Lots of Divalicious kisses.

These sound delightful Desle. I love green tea as a drink, so I can imagine loving these. The Body Shop always gives SO MUCH product! HAHAHA I can never use it up, hence it goes bad. Excellent review.
