The foaming shower gel:
I have been a using this shower gel for a while now. I think I tried all the foaming shower gels from all the lines Rituals offers and none has disappointed me. Why do I like this foam so much? I like the whole shower gel in a bottle with a pump idea. Now what this foam creates is extraordinary. It is actually like a shaving cream same foaming result but scented and soapy. Use a shower sponge and you can foam yourself away. Here underneath is a picture showing how foamy this gel can get.
The shower cream scrub:
Never before have I tried the body scrubs from Rituals but the past week I've used it about 3 times. Personally I am not a big fan of coarse body scrubs since I believe your skin (except the palms and feet) doesn't need to be scrubbed off to be healthy. The skin has a natural system where dead skin cells are removed automatically. The more you scrub the more vulnerable you make your skin to infections. Also you can create hyper-production of skin cells which can make your skin thicker and rougher. Thus you will create a cycle in scrubbing and thickening of the skin, which is not the effect you'd want. Now back to this specific scrub; I love it. The scrub is a combination of a gel cleanser and a scrub. It's not coarse at all, rather softening. Some people say when they use this scrub, they don't feel like they've even scrubbed. But like I said I don't like coarse scrubs, I like to save my skin a little bit so this scrub is ideal for myself.
This scent is definitely a sweet/fresh scent. Initially I found this fragrance strange because an orange isn't exactly a scent I would use for a fragrance but contradictory orange is a great scent to excite my senses with freshness. So I feel clean and happy.
If this blog got you interested in Rituals and you would like to know more about them, check out the website at www.rituals.com. I like them, so maybe you might.
I really appreciate all the responses and complements I've been getting lately.
