One of the things most of us probably skip is the body care. Putting body lotion or body oil might feel like a time consuming thing to do especially if you are in hurry. I am sure we all have the same “nothing will happen if you skip it one time” excuse, right? If you can find a lightweight lotion so that you don’t need to wait so long for it to soak, like The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea, would you reconsider applying body lotion without skipping a day?

In winter I hardly skip applying body lotion, otherwise I end up getting dehydrated and dry skin straight away. When the weather gets warmer, it is the time I end up skipping applying body products then dealing with dry skin afterwards. I guess one of the reasons that I skip it is the sticky feeling, who would want feeling all oily in summer when it is boiling hot outside?

In summer if you don’t use any prevention, you can get more dry skin. With the hot weather water loss will be more, then dehydration will cause dry skin. You need something to make a barrier which will stop water loss from your skin. Because of these reasons, body care is also important like skin care. Also if you find something light and fast absorbing, then you don’t need to spend so much time to wait it to be soaked in.

Unlike Moringa Body Butter, The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea body butter is lightweight and goes on smoothly. Even the texture is softer than moringa body butter, it is easier to apply and the skin soaks it quickly. Applying the body butter and waiting for it to soak in so we can get dressed isn’t ideal, is it? Even though it is light in texture, it is really hydrating and the skin feels softer till the end of the day.

Also green tea has so many benefits for the skin, so using green tea body butter will improve skin condition. Did you know that you can use greet tea lotions on sun burnt skin? I won’t only rely on the lotion and I will always have my green tea daily. Green tea boost inside and out and hope that anti-aging effect will work for me.

It has fresh scent, it is so crisp and somehow relaxing. At first it might be overpowering and it will linger on the skin for a while then once it fades away, you will be left with clean smell. You can even skip your perfume, if you don’t have something special. Also don’t rely on free perfume body lotions, most of them only give scent without actually hydrating the skin.

If you want something light, this is something to consider. How often do you use body care products? Have you tried The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea body butter? Do you  believe in the effects of green tea?

  • This is gonna sound weird, but at first I rrreally loved the scent of this body butter… But then it just became too much for me and it started feeling overwhelming. I don’t think it’s a light smell at all. It’s very strong.

    • At first it is really strong however gets better in time. It is lighter than other body butters that’s why I like to use it in summer.

  • I actually try to keep the lotion up during the summer since my legs are bare and I don’t want them to look ashy but its so easy to skip any time of the year when time is short. This body butter sounds delightful!


    • I seem to skip it a lot during summer, I don’t like the sticky feeling at all.

  • green tea is great for skincare cause it is calming and fresh!! (:

  • Missy May

    Bathing, moisturising and using a body now and then. Sometimes it can be time consuming, but yeah it is good for the body. This body butter sounds great. Thanks for sharing.

    • Time consuming but something we have to do, otherwise skin gets really dry!

  • Ah I know I should do a good old full body moisturise a lot more than I do…but I find it so time consuming haha! My boyfriends mum recently bought a spray on moisturizer and that’s just about swayed me… I do love green tea products tho so maybe I just need to stop being such a lazy little shite!

    Katie La Coco Noire

    • It is so time consuming and feeling sticky is the last thing I want in summer, so I tend to skip it a lot! Spray ones are great and easier to use, I like vaseline ones!

  • I’m so glad they came out with this, because I find a lot of their body butters too heavy during the Summer months. The scent sounds heavenly. I love the packaging and what great benefits. Will have to check it out!

    • I really don’t like heavy body products in summer, they tend to be so sticky and hard to absorb!

  • ALY

    I totally believe in the effects of green tea!

    <3 | X | | Latest: Golden Light Style Post

  • It is so good for you! Some people don’t even realise this great info here 🙂

    • It is definitely good, everyone should give green tea&products a try 🙂

  • This sounds really lovely, like Kim, I avoid using TBS body butter in Spring and Summer as they are usually way too heavy even for my dry skin. This sounds like a great option.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Most of them are so heavy and it takes ages to absorb. I find this one lighter than others and at least I don’t have to wait ages feeling sticky!

  • This sounds lovely! I haven’t used Body Shop moisturisers in years as they usually are too thick and heavy feeling but this sounds so much better!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

    • Agree with that! This one is a lot lighter than others I tried and it doesn’t takes ages to absorb.

  • This sounds so wonderful! I have long loved The Body Shop’s body butter and can imagine the benefits to applying green tea to one’s skin are endless. I’ll have to pick some of this up! Thank you for sharing!

    • I want to believe the effects of green tea, so I will not skip it!

  • Quite hilariously, I’ve always spent far more time looking after the skin on my body than my face – it’s only recently I’ve started looking after both equally! So with that in mind, I’m falling in love yet AGAIN with a body product here haha; this Green Tea body butter sounds lovely and I love the sound of the benefits to the skin 🙂

    Gabrielle | A Glass Of Ice x

    • It is the opposite for me, however in summer I seem to skip both of them, I know I shouldn’t do it! I want to believe the benefits of green tea, at least it is the reason why I drink it 🙂 x

  • I’m so impressed with the Body Shop skincare. I think they’re making a bit of a comeback.

  • I sometimes find the Body Shop body butters a little heavy so it’s good to hear this has a lighter texture – I love this scent too 🙂

    • Most of them are heavy, at least this is a little bit better than others 🙂 x

  • I usually put body lotion on after every shower as I have really dry skin, but I would love to switch body butter. You’ve convinced me!

    xx Yasmin

    • I try to do that too, however sometimes after a quick shower I can’t even remember to do it 🙂 x

  • I never skip body lotion 🙂 But I don’t like anything heavy or anything that takes ages to get absorbed, body lotions are way to go for me. Having said that this Fuji Green Tea body butter sounds lovely. x

    • I wish I could be the same! I tend to skip it a lot, especially in summer. I just can’t be bothered to put body lotion and wait for it to be absorbed 🙂 x

  • Rebecca Fletcher

    I love body lotion but I go through phases when I moisturise twice a day or I dont for a week! I love the body shop body butters, they are so nice & thick. Never smelled this one though, but it sounds lovely

    • I am the same way! Sometimes I wouldn’t skip it a day and sometimes I would go for weeks without applying any and complain about dry skin!

  • I love pretty much all The Body Shop lotions and body butters so must give this a sniff! They’re pricey but really well made:)

    • TBS knows how to come up with good products, especially the new releases! I wish it was a little bit cheaper 🙂


    I am loving The Body Shop right now, their products are fantastic

  • I’m obsessed with Body Butters at the Body Shop, they work so well for hydrating my skin. This one sounds really nice!

    • TBS products are good, when I use them, my skin feels baby soft 🙂

  • I love their body butters and the lighter body lotions. Vineyard Peach has to be my favourite range so, I’ve repurchased it so many times.

    Advaita | Blush Canvas

    • I love the smell of their products, they are really good at it! Peach one smells lovely, I used it before!

  • Ellie Adams

    Any body butter from the body shop are always incredible but I really love the scent of the green tea version. Really fresh and clean. Gorgeous pictures as always!


    • I love fresh and clean scent in summer, this one is perfect for it! Thank you so much 🙂 x

  • It sounds lovely! The body shop has the best range of body butters in my opinion. And they always smell so good! 🙂

  • I drink green tea daily, and I believe in the antioxidant benefits. And the Body Butter is one i tried and enjoyed last summer for days when I was not planning on wearing perfume, as the scent is quite noticeable and lingers. But I don’t think that it actually has any skincare benefits. I f you look at the ingredient list, the green tea is prominent in scent, but not as active ingredient. So as you said, I´d rely on my daily dose of drunken green tea.

    Linda, Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

    • Tbh I haven’t checked the ingredients so I didn’t know about it. I better stick to my green tea and use it just because it is lighter than other body butters I’ve tried.

      • As long as it is a good body butter, that is all that counts.

  • Emma

    Good article !


  • Siffat Haider

    I’ve been obsessed with Body Shop Body Butter for years. My favourite is the cocoa shea, but the green tea one sounds amazing!

  • This range sounds so lovely, I’ve seen it in the shops so I will definitely have to try it!

  • I agree on not skipping on lotion. I try to spread some at least twice a day. Sounds like a great product from the Body Shop. Great for our climate too!

  • Corinne C

    I was sent some of this range and it smells so good! They have some tea bath soak thing which is lush.

  • I’m the absolute worst when it comes to body moisturising! It’s not that I can’t be bothered, but more the texture of it. I don’t know why but I’ve never really liked how it feels. But this one sounds great, the fact that it’s lightweight and drys fast is amazing. I’ve always loved the smell of Green Tea too. So this one sounds like a winner and I definitely want to try it. – Summer Bronze Goddess Tutorial + UPDATE

    • I don’t really like greasy feeling, that’s the reason I tend to skip it then complain about dry skin 🙂

  • I love products with green tea! Going to have to check this out next time I’m at the mall! I bet I’ll love the smell!

    Green tea is fantastic! I know it has many great properties to it when you drink it, so I’m sure it’s great in creams too!

    I can only imagine how great this would be

    Selina | SelinasInspiration

  • The Sunday Mode

    I’ll admit I’m definitely one of those people who frequently skips applying body lotion and then I complain about dry skin…oops! My biggest issue is usually that body butters and lotions take so long to sink in that I can never be bothered waiting until I can go and do something else, so it’s great to hear that this seems to absorb quickly. That’s just what I need.

    • That’s the same reason I tend to skip applying body lotions in summer, I just can’t be bothered to wait and have that stick feeling.

  • Yiotou_La

    I love a lightweight body butter for summer. I love Body Shop creams and butters and I was not disappointed once with their products! Now I wish we had a Body Shop here, I would love to add this to my body products collection.


    • Lightweight body products are best for this time of year, I really can’t handle heavy and thick ones!

  • I do love The Body Shop products! especially their body butters 😉 Right now I use Vitamin E one.

  • i currently use a Pink Grapefruit Body Butter and LOVE it. The scent is great and the texture is juuuuust right. Thanks for sharing! I’ll have to try this one out too!

    Love, Lindsey

    • I haven’t tried grapefruit one, I am sure it smells refreshing!

  • I have to try this. I love anything green tea! Thanks for sharing!

    • TBS has so many great products, it is hard to choose a favourite! x

  • I’m a nightmare for skipping body care but this lightweight solution sounds perfect and i’d no idea you could use it on burnt skin ! I’m desperate to try it I’m going to pick some up on monday when I’m in town because I love fresh scents !

    lots of love, Marianne xxx

    • I skip it a lot in summer, I just can’t handle the sticky feeling. I didn’t know that green tea products are good for the burnt skin until recently, you learn new things everyday! x

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    I remember reading your lovely review of the Moringa body butter, and I’m glad you’ve decided to review more stuff from TBS range! You know that I absolutely adore their butters, although I haven’t tried this particular one. It sounds amazing, I love how refreshing and crisp the scent seems, and I will definietly be checking it out so thank you for sharing, hun. <3


    • TBS products are good and they never disappoint me:) This one has lighter scent than other ones I tried and it is really refreshing xx

  • ALY

    I am interested in the moringa butter especially. So many benefits.

    <3 | X | | Latest: Barbie Blonde – Style Post

    • Moringa butter one is perfect for cold winter days, it makes wonders!

  • Andreea Birsan

    They always have great products! I bet this one is also amazing! x

    Have a nice day,

  • I love the green tea line! I was tempted to get the green tea bath soak but have resisted so far!

    • I want to get the bath soak as well however atm I don’t have bath, when I do I will get so many bath products ha ha 🙂

  • This sound lovely! I have to try it!

  • The time it takes for it to absorb is what puts me off body moisturizer too, so this sounds amazing 🙂 I like that this one actually improves your skin too

    Rachel xx

    • It is really annoying, I hate waiting and that sticky feeling so I skip it all the time 🙂 x

  • I love green tea, and for some reason I skipped this range by The Body Shop. I haven’t used products by the Body Shop in a long time because I kept getting underwhelmed. Either the scents were too artificial and strong, or the products just didn’t do much. This sounds lovely though! I love that you mentioned the body butter is lightweight and goes on smoothly. That’s something a struggled to find in many of the Body Shop’s body butters. No one likes the sticky film some body butters and lotions leave behind! I will definitely have to check this out. xx
    Celina | The Celution | Bloglovin’

    • Most of the body butters I’ve tried were so heavy and had strong scent, it is kinda ok for winter, however this is the last thing I want in summer when it is boiling hot outside. Agree that some scents are too artificial and strong, I can’t handle overpowering scents! x

  • This looks great although I worry that I would just crave a cup of tea all day if I smelled like it!

    Aisling | anthologie.

    • It is best to have unscented or light scented products!

  • This looks great! I need to try it when I go to the BodyShop next x

  • Ooh I tried this in the body shop the other week and it smelt really nice! I love the body butter’s in the body shop! xo

  • A lightweight body lotion sounds ideal for summer, but unfortunately I don’t have a TBS near me.
    I often skip body lotion in the summer, too, as I think it makes me sweat more…

    • I skip it all the time! Last thing I want is to have something sticky when it is boiling hot outside!

  • Lizzie

    I always use a body moisturiser after showering/bathing thankfull I am now in a routine where I do this without thinking as it can be a pain! This product sounds really lovely I definitely want to give it a go 🙂

    • In winter I do it that way, however in summer when it is so hot outside, it is the last thing I could think of 🙂

  • I’ve become so complacent when it comes to body care. The last year or so I’ve become so lazy and not hydrating as well as I should, even during the winter months. Eeek. I’ve started noticing a major difference now so have been amping up the care now!


    • When I skip body care a few times, my skin gets really dehydrated and I need to scrub to make it look better again. It is the last thing I could think of in summer, I really can’t be bothered to apply it 🙂 x

  • Saara Sofia

    I’m definitely interested in trying more green tea products since I’ve heard so many good things about green tea for skin care. I haven’t been to The Body Shop in ages but next time I’m in town I’ll have a quick look around and see what they’ve got! | Bloglovin’

    • I want to try more green tea products, since it has so many benefits!

  • This sounds like something I would like. I love green tea, and honestly I do get lazy when it comes to applying body butter or lotion. I have really dry knees and ankles. Oops. I hope I can find this in the US.


    • I am the same! When I skip it, my skin gets so try and it doesn’t look good in summer, but I still skip it :/

  • I love the idea of this! Body Shop are everywhere at the moment x

    I swear by green tea and have actually been looking for a summer moisturiser – I usually use Nivea but I’m finding it too thick for the warmer nights so must check out the Body Shop soon! x

    Viva Epernay | GlossyBox Giveaway! | Vote For Me – Beauty Blogging Awards

    • Nivea moisturisers are good, however some of them are really think and not good for hot weather. This one is lighter in texture and smells divine. x

  • This product sounds lovely, and the scent must be nice and fresh at this time of year. I still have a few body butters I need to use up that I got at Christmas, but when they’re empty I’ll keep an eye out for this!

  • Avril Moore

    I have this fuji green tea set with the body wash, the scrub and the lotion. It is very light but i find it doesnt spread very far and doesn’t leave an oily feel to the skin which some people may favour but I like to feel moistured and that my skin has been fed. I’m not so keen on the scent either. I prefer a more berry, tarty scent. Great to hear other peoples opinions though 🙂 great post!

  • The body shop is so amazing! I am deeply obsessed with their green tea bath gel as well! Thanks for sharing! I love hearing about their new products! They are also so eco-friendly which I love!

  • Ahhh this sounds so amazing… When I was in London, I was positive I bought a travel sized body butter, but actually, it was a body peeling 😀 I was sooo disappointed 😀 Everyone seems to be raging about these products and I’ve nowhere to buy them 😀 Great review xx
