I’m quite late writing this post but March started off with a trip to the Body Shop on Grafton Street for the launch of their Fuji Green Tea range. As a fan of drinking green tea all day I was delighted to sample their new products. Their space upstairs in the shop looked amazing. It was a large open space decorated with fans and Japanese art. The products were on display and there was plenty to sample.
There was also a nail bar and threading station where my good friend Cat from Big Blonde Girl had her first threading experience. I’ll be kind and won’t post up the vast amount of pictures I took and memes I created. Later in the evening there was a great make-up demo showcasing some looks for spring.
The Body Shop provided an abundance of food: there was a selection of green tea macaroons, Japanese cabbage wraps (which were delicious) and plenty of green tea. The staff were lovely, friendly and very helpful.
I left the event with a number of Green Tea treats (and cabbage wraps) including an exfoliator, body moisturiser and bath salts. All of these products are fantastic. The salts make the bath feel like sitting in a giant cup of green tea as they contain actual tea leaves. They are soothing and calming and provide a de-stressing treat. They are great for an evening of relaxation. The moisturiser is luxurious and creamy and will leave the skin feeling soft, nourished and hydrated for hours to come. My favourite of all the products is the exfoliator. It has a thick jelly consistency but acts as a really nice shower scrub on the skin. The scent is fresh, crisp and clean. It will banish any old dead skin and leaves the skin looking and feeling great.
