Some women are totally into shoes, others are into handbags. No me. I’m into bath and body products as well as beauty products. I get a “natural high” when I see a display of bath and body products in the store. 🙂
One of my favorite things about being a blogger is being introduced to products and services I might not otherwise know about. Take for example a line of home and body cosmetics called Rituals. They are available at Barneys New York. To be honest with you I have never stepped foot inside Barneys. I figured all of the things they sold in their store were way out of my price range. Now that I know about Rituals I am going to make it a point to visit Barneys the next chance I get.
Rituals hails from the Netherlands. It is a line of collections for men and women inspired by Ancient Eastern Traditions. Their products range from body scrubs, to soothing mists to hand lotions. Rituals products are designed with specific ingredients to evoke feelings and ignite your senses.
Rituals has a few different collections. One such collection is the Tao Collection by Rituals.
Each item in the collection is designed to find harmony between Yin and Yang: your inner world and the external influences. The line is enriched with White Lotus, Green Tea and Chinese Mint which help calm the body and soul. With the application of moisturizer or spritz of pillow spray, your senses will relax and you’ll find your Yin.
I was sent to review a few products from Rituals. I’m not kidding when I tell you I was stalking the delivery men anxiously waiting for this package to arrive. I was super excited to try the products out.
I received to review Yin Calming Bed and Body Mist, Himalaya Wisdom Deep Cleansing Scrub and T’ai Chi Foaming Shower Gel Sensation.
Yin Calming Bed and Body Mist
Calming mist for your (bed) textiles and skin. Enriched with calming ingredients Yi Yi Ren and White Lotus, promotes restful sleep and meditation. Safe for all textiles, does not stain. Cosmetic formula contains no alcohol and is therefore ideal for use on (sensitive) skin.
I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE this spray mist! The scent is amazing. I literally use this EVERY DAY. It has a very calming, soothing scent to it. I like to spray it on my body, close my eyes and inhale the intoxicating scent.
I wish I had a way of describing how it smells. It’s not a floral scent, per say. It does have a floral scent but it’s not entirely a floral scent. There is something more to it.
I spray this on my bed at night too. Even my husband enjoys the scent.
Some people spray Lavender in their room or on their bed to relax and to help them fall asleep. This spray is similar – not in scent but in it’s effect.
Himalaya Wisdom Deep Cleansing Scrub
Revitalize your skin through deep cleansing with this ultra-softening and cooling body scrub. We combined the ancient Ayurvedic ingredient Holy Basil for its calming properties with Fresh Mint to revitalize your body. Contains ancient crystal salt from the Himalayas with cleansing and harmonizing properties for inner balance and vitality.
I love body scrubs. It makes a difference in your skin. If you have never used a scrub before I highly recommend it. It helps to remove dead, dry skin and it helps to sooth and moisturize your skin. Your skin will look and feel so much better after you use it.
Rituals are amazing when it comes to scents. Even this body scrub smells amazing. It fills the shower with it’s lovely scent.
I have never been to a spa before. I would imagine a scrub like this is something you would experience and a luxury spa. It doesn’t seem like something you can buy off the store shelf.
The scrub comes in a generous size tub too.
T’ai Chi Foaming Shower Gel Sensation
Unique shower foam technology based on organic ingredients White Lotus and Green Tea. Due to its self-cleaning properties, the White Lotus is a symbol for purity and spiritual growth, while the powerful antioxidant Green Tea has a strong calming effect. The gentlest shower foam your skin has ever experienced.
I have never tried a shower gel before. It sprays in your hand like shaving cream/gel does. A little bit goes a long way. Once it mixes with water it turns into a thick, creamy lotion-like foam.
The gel lathers and rinses off well. Just like the scrub the gel fills the shower air with incredible scent. I can smell the green tea in the shower gel when the fragrance releases into the air.
Now that I have experienced Rituals products I am excited to try out more of them. We don’t have a Barneys New York near by but I an order the online at www.Barneys.com. Use the search box on the top right to search for Rituals.
Ritual products range in price from $15 – $29, with most products selling at either $15 or $25.
Have you tried any Rituals products? If so, which one did you try?
