My Rituals Products


Rituals Cosmetics is a lovely Dutch shop, created in 2000, with a unique concept: creating home and body products that are inspired by authentic Oriental rituals. In over a decade Rituals has grown into a well-known and highly appreciated cosmetic company slowly but surely growing big internationally!

My cousin was so kind to buy me the "Touch of Sunrise" gift set with "Sunrise" shower foam, "Sunrise Scrub" and "Touch of Heaven" body cream. I think my most favorite product so far is Ritual's foaming shower gel because I have never had such a wonderful experience before in the shower! Sounds silly? I find it amazing how you just put a bit of shower gel on your hand, add a splash of water to it and start rubbing it and the gel turns into soft foam and just keeps and keeps growing. Sensational! And the scent, it's so strong and smells great! This is why I bought another foaming shower gel, "Fujiyama",  at Wijnegem Shopping Center and I think I love this one even more than I do "Sunrise"!


Touch of Heaven gift set



All products in the gift set had sweet orange and warm cedar in them. It reminds me of summer and makes me feel oh-so fresh and clean. Both the body scrub and cream are very rich and nourishing. "Fujiyama" shower foam has mandarin and cooling mint. Another summery and fruity scent. Here's a look at how foamy it can be:



I have another rich body cream, called "Honey Touch", filled with Indian Rose and Himalaya Honey. As you can see on the pictures below the  cream is very butter, feels quite thick and smells great. Ok, the latter you can't actually see, but you catch my drift! So, what's so Oriental about this product? According to Rituals: "Ancient Ayurvedic science shows that massaging your body daily (with cream) strengthens the skin and harmonizes the mind. In addition it increases the blood circulation, which promotes an overall skin glow" It's the aforementioned ingredients that soften and nourish the skin.





Rituals Cosmetics has opened its doors in 18 countries so click here for more information or to find a store near your home! Now, all the Dutchies and Belgians will surely know this store well so what is your favorite product by Rituals? And for the rest, have you ever heard of it? What do you think now?

  5. I don't know this brand so I went to see their website. I do like the fact that it's a cruelty free brand. I don't see anything natural or eastern in their ingredients though. If I look at the honey body butter for exemple, there is more perfume (6th ingredient) than honey (11th ingredient). I love honey it's a natural humectant but there isn't enough in it to be an actual active ingredient. There's probably less than 5% honey in it. They seam to be a dutch body shop or l'occitane en provence, they surf in that natural vibe but they aren't nearly close to it. My bf's mom have a shampoo from them though and it does smell delicious. I'm sure they are fun products and effective with a delicious smell, but ayurvedic not really.

    1. Thank you for your reply. You make a good point there! You also make me wonder about how Ayurvedic the cream really is. At least for now it certainly moisturizes and softens my skin, and that's a-ok in my book (as I am more critical towards products for one's face than body), but you really raise some good topics! I'd love to hear your opinion if you ever try products by Rituals.
