BEAUTY – Smooth and hydrate your skin with Green Tea Body Scrub

It is well know that drinking green tea has benefits for our health, it is a natural antioxidant, helps kill bacteria and can even help you live longer. With such amazing benefits, can it be used on your body externally for your body to absorb? Well, Queen Tea have created a Green Tea body scrub that can.

The scrub is encased in a cute tea tin and inside you will find a luxurious scrub. It doesn’t look pretty as it is a thick green paste, but it smells divine. After soaking in a lovely bath to soften your skin and prepare it for exfoliation, scrub the paste into all of the skin on your body. As you do so, wafts of the delicious scents of peppermint and eucalyptus help relax you, whilst little grains of salt and sugar help exfoliate your skin and relieve stress. It is advised to leave it on for five minutes before you wash it off and when you do, your skin is left visibly softer, with a smooth and velvety texture.

The Green Tea scrub includes; green tea (antioxidant rich and detoxifying matcha & leaves), coconut oil (moisturising, helping to heal and protect the skin), salt & sugar (natural exfoliant helping to relieve pain and stress), eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils (soothing and decongesting).

They have also created a Black Tea Scrub, which includes; black tea (caffeine rich helping to tone and protect from premature ageing), olive oil (nourishing helps to smooth skin), salt & sugar (natural exfoliant helps to relieve pain and stress), bergamot essential oil helps to induce sleep).
