Each fragrance affects your senses in different manner. Few wake you up, few puts you to sound sleep, few relieves stress and a few makes you party ready, all this according to your preferences and to which your nose does not revolt against. I do take the topic of fragrances very seriously 😛 One such fragrance which relieves stress and makes me feel fresh and at peace is The Body Shop Fuji Green tea and the product I am reviewing from this range is The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter.

Review of The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter
Packaging: The product comes housed in a sturdy plastic tub with a lid, which is the standard packaging of TBS. It can get a little bulky and messy to travel with, since it does not have an extra protective lid within the top lid. However I have been using TBS body butters since years and I am okay with the packaging and I do carry it in my handbag. The bottom of tub contains information on the price, shelf life and ingredients.
Texture and fragrance: The texture of this body butter is neither too thick like the other body butters The Body Shop offers nor as thin as a body lotion. It is almost like a thick cream mixed with gel kind of consistency.
The Fragrance is what made me buy the entire collection of products in this range. Yes, no kidding here!! The key notes of this fragrance is of light citrus and green fragrance notes which smells so fresh, light and soothing! I used this through the entire summer since it is just so ideal and refreshing for that time for the year.
Efficacy: It provides excellent moisturization to the skin during all the seasons, except during peak winters when skin craves for thick heavy duty body butters. Perfect for summers as told earlier due to it’s not so thick texture. Once applied, it keeps the skin moisturized for good 8 to 10 hours but the smell fades away after 2 hours! Once applied, it sinks into the skin completely with a light massage and never does it feel sticky or heavy.
Overall, I love the Fuji Green Tea Body Butter from The Body Shop as it smells divine, moisturizes the skin effectively and is a great option if you find the body lotions too thin for your need. It is a total winner and is a staple body moisturizer in my collection.
