RITUALS Home & Body Cosmetics

At times when you just need a boost of energy, besides from that third cup of coffee, from all the day to day stress of the never ending to-do list , I try to grab my favorite scented candle or scented hand cream, give myself a minute or two to just rest and breathe, before tackling the rest of the day.
One of my recent beauty finds that is perfect for times like this is the
RITUALS Home & Body Cosmetics
"...happiness can be found in the smallest of things. We transform your everyday routines into moments of indulgence by means of beautiful and luxurious products." 

about the brand

 Founded in 2000 by Raymond Cloosterman, he had this philosophy of turning our daily routines into more meaningful moments by paying a bit more attention to the details. Hence, with this concept RITUALS home and body cosmetics was born!

about the products
Happy Buddha Shower Foam
This combines the citrus scent of sweet orange and the warmth of cedar wood. 
The gel transforms into a rich, creamy, moisturizing foam. 

Touch of Happiness Body Cream
Whipped body cream from their Laughing Buddha Collection.
It combines the warming, natural ingredients of Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood, that is renowned for its mood boosting properties. Additionally, with the unique blend of Vitamin E, antioxidants and Centella Asiatica, your skin will feel ultra nourished and hydrated.
Sweet Sunrise scented candle
Enjoy 50 hours of this scented candle of sweet orange and cedar wood.
The richly fragrant white flowers of the Orange are an ancient symbol of purity and innocence. Cedar possesses a soothing aroma that has been used since ancient times. Cedar Wood is an age-old symbol of immortality. 

My Thoughts
I found the scents of the body products aren't as overwhelming and too fragrant.
Again Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood scent of the shower gel just puts you in a perky/ happy mood. I'm not a morning shower person, so anything to put me in a good mood (before coffee) is very well needed. 
This scent also reminds me of Spring and sunshine, which I miss so badly.

I'll be passing along the body cream since I do use unscented body lotions since I got mild eczema. I can use this just for my hands but I know who will enjoy this as well. 

I've been keeping the candle on my desk. There are times I get a writer's block (or maybe early signs of short term memory loss), and I just want to smell something nice to wake up my brain. I haven't lit this one yet since I'm still finishing another candle. I also got hubby's approval with this scent, and he's very picky with scents too.  

I've never tried anything from this brand before. I'm very curious how their other collection smells. I love that the collections are based on the Eastern traditions of balancing your energy (Yin And Yang), and creating this experience through their home and body products.
