The Body Shop is adding two refreshing new collections to help keep you cool and squeaky clean in the hot summer weather. The limited edition Virgin Mojito collection and the new permanent Fuji Green Tea range are both now available in stores so let's take a look at some products from the two lines.......
|Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion & Body Wash|
Made with Japanese Fuji green tea extract full of antioxidants, this collection promises to detox and replenish the body. Everything in this range has a very subtle tea scent that's both refreshing and calming. The body lotion is lightweight and absorbs quickly while the body wash lathers nicely, providing the skin with a squeaky clean feel. Interestingly, the Body Scrub, the item that I was most interested in, ended up being a bit disappointing. Sparsely filled with scrubbing particles, the scrub is not effective enough for my preference and the gel base formula doesn't lather at all which I find a bit hard to get used to.

Inspired by the popular summer cocktail, this collection has a zingy citrus scent. The body scrub is of a similar texture and feel as the Fuji Green Tea one, thus it's simply not scrubby enough for my liking. The body butter, on the hand, is rich and moisturizing, just like all other body butters from The Body Shop.
