My Honest Rituals Cosmetics Products Review & Haul | Worth it?

Hello ladies! A couple of weeks ago blogger babe Alex from invited me to attend an event that Rituals Cosmetics hosted at their new Bleecker Street store in NYC. After lusting over all their products Kristen from and I were filled with joy when we received a swag bag that put all other swag bags to shame. Today I will be reviewing Rituals Cosmetics Zensation Foam Gel, Sakura Scrub, Indian Rose Scented Candle, and Magic Touch Whipped Body Cream.

About Rituals Cosmetics

Rituals Cosmetics is a luxury home & body brand with collections inspired by nature and based on Eastern traditions. They have a wide collection of products that range from perfumes and scented candles to makeup and tea! After conducting some research on the brand I discovered that their products are 100% paraben free, plastic microbead free, and are not tested on animals. They also only use natural, renewable, and organic ingredients in their products. So before testing out these products I knew that I was dealing with a quality company that cares about our health, planet, and furry friends!

Sakura Sugar Body Scrub

The first product I tested out was the Sakura Sugar Body Scrub. I am very fond of body scrubs and let me tell you, this one is my new favorite. I used this product in the shower to exfoliate my skin. I personally have sensitive skin and this scrub did not irritate my skin at all and actually worked wonders for me. I attribute this to the exfoliation of the scrub and the abundance of softening oils inside the scrub (pictured above.) The instructions say to use it one to two times a week and due to the deep exfoliation you get I would have to say I agree! The scent of this product is stronger than I had anticipated, but is by no means overpowering. The scent is actually quite pleasant, and it helps to make me feel pampered in the shower. One tip that I have, is to make sure that you close this jar tightly so that the oils don’t spill out, they are magical!

Zensation Foam Gel

The next product I tested out while in the shower was the Zensation Foam Gel  (now known asThe Ritual of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel) and believe me when I say that this product foams up like no other! It’s actually pretty cool watching how quickly it goes from being a gel to becoming foam. The instant it comes in contact with water, BAM, you have foam. Rice milk is used in this foaming gel to nourish your skin and leave it feeling silky smooth, which of course we all love. You will be enveloped in the scent of cherry blossom when using this gel. I would definitely call this product multipurpose because I also used it as a shaving cream and it was awesome. This shower gel in combination with the Sakura Scrub left me feeling like I had just walked out of a spa.

Indian Rose Scented Candle

After trying out the scrub and shower gel, I could not wait to test out the body cream, but first I lit the Indian Rose Scented Candle (now known as Ayurveda Candle.) After lighting the candle I proceeded to apply the Rituals Magic Touch Body Cream *Spoiler Alert: It’s also awesome!* and got dressed. About 5 minutes after I lit the candle, my cousin, Kenya, came into my room and the first words out of her mouth were “Your room smells so good!” I hadn’t even realized how good it smelled until she said that. The point of this mini story was to show you that while this scent definitely takes over the room, it is still soft and lovely.

Magic Whipped Body Cream

Last but not least, I tried out the Magic Touch Whipped Body Cream(now known as The Ritual of Sakura Body Cream.) This body cream is thick and luxurious. It feels very good on the skin and soaks up quickly leaving the skin soft and just as the other products, silky smooth. I am happy to note that this cream did not leave that annoying residue that many other creams leave you with. I was also very fond of the cherry blossom scent that lingered on the skin long after I had applied the cream.

Overall Thoughts & Opinion

By now I’m pretty sure that you can all tell that I love these products. I would have to say that overall, each product has a very pleasant and natural perfume scent. They are all super luxe and not only did I enjoy these products, but I really enjoyed the experience that I had when I used them. Now I know that may sound silly, but I really felt pampered. I think that the company hit the nail on the head with their mission to make routines into rituals because that is what this process has become for me.

Overall, my favorite product was the Sakura Body Scrub and I would definitely repurchase it. If I had to leave one of these products behind it would be the Indian Rose Scented Candle because I am usually drawn more to sweeter scents. However, I am open to trying other scents and will purchase this candle for my mother because she is obsessed with the scent and quality. As a side note, while I was at the event I happened to try on one of their perfumes (and proceeded to get it in my mouth by accident) and the scent was amazing. So if you are looking for an everyday perfume I would recommend checking theirs out. If you are interested in these products, Rituals Cosmetics can be found at their website, and department stores such as Barney’s.

P.S. This post is in no way sponsored, Rituals Cosmetics doesn’t even know that I am doing this review. All this gushing about the brand is 100% honest!

Thank you for joining me today! This was such a fun post to write and I will definitely be doing more beauty and cosmetic reviews in the near future!

    I believe I’ve vaguely read about this brand, this is definitely a more detailed post! I love scrubs, too, and this one does sound quite amazing. I think when it comes to skincare, a ritualistic approach is a must; it should be more than a routine, which can often be done absent minded. We should intently care for and nurture our skin, we don’t get do overs! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, girlie!

      Skincare routines are so important so I definitely agree with their stance on making it a ritual! You are so right, we don’t get do overs when it comes to taking care of our skin. Thank you for stopping by Jalisa! <3

    Rituals with jing shower gel and body lotion smells amazing and does not irratate sensitive skin. My daughter bought me a gift set for my birthday. It is amazing but expensive have been looking online at prices it is a luxury.
