The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Event - White Rose Centre

Meow, so I was invited to The Body Shop Green Tea Event as The Body Shop have just released their Fuji Green Tea so I thought that I would tell you about it. You should all go check out the Fuji Green Tea range at The Body Shop as it's amazing! I can't thank the staff enough for inviting me to the event! (I would also like to mention that the photos won't be great as I realised that the focus settings had been changed at the end of the event...)

A sneak peek of the Fuji Green Tea range

We travelled to the White Rose Centre and tried to make our way to the store as I think that the complex is a bit of a maze but after a good few minutes we had arrived at the store. We walked in and slowly wandered around looking at all of the products that were on display to try.
One minute later, a lovely member of staff with a clipboard wandered up to us and asked if we were Jamie and Luke which we were and then asked us to go over to a table which displayed lots of colourful products. We walked over to there whilst a lovely young woman came over and talked to us. Her name was Theresa. She is a fellow blogger and asked us some questions as this was her bloggers event and wasn't sure what to expect. After a few minutes of talking, another blogger Kellie (I mentioned her in the Nouveau Lashes post) arrived with her daughter, we greeted and smiled as it was great to see her again... This is when the event started!

A tall bearded man (personally he looked pretty handsome) joined us. He introduced himself to us all and within a split second we had found out that his name was Tom and that he would be hosting the event. I also found out that he has a blog on Tumblr. A woman also walked over and introduced herself as Shannon. We also found out that she would be co-hosting the event with  Tom and that she is the skincare expert for the store at White Rose. 
I know the picture is meh but here's the host!

They started off by talking about what the event was for. They explained that the whole purpose of the event was to highlight and promote the Fuji Green Tea range which I was pretty excited about because I always love new beauty products. After they explained this, Shannon asked who would like a hand massage which made the room go slightly silent until Theresa gladly volunteered. (Check out her blog to see how that went...)

We were handed green tea to go along eith the green tea experience as we were trying to hit all of the five senses. The green tea was donated to the event from the wonderful people at Costa Coffee in the White Rose Centre The green tea was fairtrade therefore I left it to cool whilst Tom told us how the green tea is picked from Fuji to be made into the Fuji Green Tea products at The Body Shop. He also told us how beneficial Green Tea is for us and how it detoxes us when we drink it so why haven't we all used it on our skins before?

Tom also then went on about the products and told us about the three stages within the Fuji Green Tea range. The first stage is called cleanse and detox then the second stage is called replenish and then the third is called replenish and it tells you what to do to your body in an order with the Fuji Green Tea products to ensure you get amazing results! Tom then showed us demonstrations such as the bath tea...  Yes, bath tea... Tom showed us that it is grounded up green tea...  I know this all sounds weird for a bath but stay with me because oh my god it is so good! (*sings stay with me*...) You basically put a good amount of the bath tea in the strainer that you can get from The Body Shop and then you put the hook that is attached to the strainer and let your tap run through it... You get the strong scent of green tea and the colour of green tea without the grittiness of the leaves... Basically you're making green tea for your bath... He also demoed the body butter, body scrub, body sorbet, soap and the other products that are in the Fuji Green Tea range.

Tom then told us about some of the new ranges that are coming to The Body Shop within the year and oh my god I was so excited to find out what The Body Shop has in store for us for the year! Tom introduced the Virgin Mojito range and told us a little bit about it and then demonstrated some of the range on us... He was explaining to me that he thought that it was really interesting as the gift sets for the Virgin Mojito range were designed so creatively. One of the gift sets contain an actual cocktail shaker and another one contains an ice bucket! (Is it only me who can see myself buying the set with the cocktail shaker and having a pamper night where we create cocktails or having a James Bond themed night and using it then...) The Virgin Mojito range is literally summer in a bottle and everyone at the event was talking about how much of the range they are going to buy when it comes out... That's all I'm going to say on the Virgin Mojito range but it comes out at the back end of May so go to your local Body Shop when its released and try it out!

All of the new Virgin Mojito range! (Out In Summer!)

Splash some Summer onto your body!

Tom then went on about the also upcoming make up... The beautiful Kellie said that most people don't think of makeup when they think of The Body Shop which I agree with on many levels but Tom agreed and added that 2016 will be the year of the makeup for The Body Shop so you should go and check out their makeup when you next pop in! I am wanting some foundation/nail polishes for when I feel and look a bit ugh so I shall be definitely getting them from The Body Shop!

New Eyeliners!


One of the products that I loved that was talked about within the event was the All In One Instablur Eye. I am a student who needs something to make him look alert as I stay up till the middle of the night doing essays or procrastinating. I am also one of those people who wakes up every other hour when sleeping so when I wake up I normally look pretty tired... The All In One Instablur Eye instantly perfects the appearance of the eye area. Tom demoed a slight bit of the product and I fell in love with the purpose of the product. It smooths and conceals imperfections which includes dark circles and it contains caffeine so it will give my eyes the perfect alert look without drinkoing gallons of caffeine... This is a perfect product in my eyes... It's priced at £10 but utterly worth it as less is more!

We were given a goodie bag at the end of the event which was amazing... I am leaving that for another post though! I had such a lovely time learning about the process of the Green Tea, learning about the new products and trying out all of the products. I had such a lovely time meeting Theresa and seeing the wonderful Kellie! It was just a wonderful event!

I hope that you have enjoyed this blog post.. Sorry if it has been a bit lengthy but a lot of information needs to be shared as it was just so interesting! I would like to thank the staff from The Body Shop White Rose Centre for inviting me to this event! Have you tried any of the new Fuji Green Tea Range? If you have then comment down below on what you thought of it!
