My never ending pile of empties! Time for another summary of some of the products I’ve finished lately.

#129 Rituals Hammam Happiness Volume & Shine Conditioner: A very freshly eucalyptus scented conditioner with a cooling sensation. It makes my hair soft and shiny without feeling heavy. The scent is also very uplifting and perfect for early mornings! I would not mind buying this one again sometime!

#130 Rituals Pure Hammam Volume & Shine Shampoo: This matches the conditioner both with the way it makes my hair feel smooth and shiny while still adding volume. This is a nice set I would not mind picking up again.

#131 It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition Serum: A cheap but nice K-Beauty serum that feels really hydrating and sinks into the skin quickly. Works nicely under face cream both for mornings and evenings. It comes in a nice glass bottle and both the experience of the serum and the looks of the bottle makes it feel much more expensive than the 11$ I had to pay for it. I could see myself picking this one up again.

#132 Bella Lucce Green Tea & Crushed Rice Body Scrub: This one makes me sad because the brand does not exist any more! They made really fantastic and luxurious body scrubs. If you can find this anywhere (I know they were retailed in many spa salons) it is absolutely worth picking up. I would for sure buy it again if it was available but sadly the brand is discontinued. I think I will have a hard time finding a brand that can replace the fantastic products from this line.

#133 Colourpop No Filter Concealer: I am one of those people who really like this concealer. I am under the impression they are either hit or miss, but I was one of the lucky ones. I have to pick up a new one very soon because I find myself missing it already!

#134 Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara: This is a great one too! I don’t love it as much as L’Oreal Paradise Extatic, but it’s a really good drugstore mascara still. I would not mind picking this one up again either!

Turns out this time around I really enjoyed all my empties and could see myself picking up everything on a later occasion!

Did you finish anything fun lately?

Rituals Body Scrubs Review!

Want to know about some delicious body scrubs that smells nice, does a wonderful job and does not break the bank? Then Rituals got you covered!

I have been using these body scrubs on a regular basis for around 3 years now and I figured it was about time I wrote a little something about them. It is always fun to share with you a review of products I use and love.

Packaging is really nice and looks luxurious. The jars are pretty big and feels nice and heavy (not strange considered they are filled with oil and sugar). The jar is plastic ,and so is the lid but the metallic finish of it and the nice design of the jar makes it feel and look expensive even though it is plastic.

The price range is just in the middle I would say. 29$ is certainly not the cheapest scrub around, but for 375 g of product in a nice jar I think it is still pretty reasonable, especially considering they work pretty great.

As you can telll, these are not new products, The Himalayan Sea Salt body scrub is almost out. It is so refreshing to use after a heavy exercise or a nice sauna.

I got three different scents here. The Himalaya Scrub is sugar grains in an oily base with a nice calming scent of roses. I love this as a winter scrub because the calming scent is very fitting when it is cold and dark outside.

The Himalaya Sea Salt Scrub smells like eucalyptus and is a proper pick-me-up. Nice to cool down with on warm days. The scrub is made of salt instead of sugar. It is slightly more grainy than the sugar based scrubs.

The Happy Buddah has the most wonderful sweet orange scent. It is quite intense but it is the kind of scent that makes you happy to sniff. I sometimes just open the jar to smell it to be honest! Scent-wise this is the big winner for me, and it makes me crave orange!

Since they are salt and sugar in a nice oil base it means that they are super moisturizing. I can use these and not put on body lotion after a shower and the skin still feels soft and hydrated. The amount of scrubbing grains is also very generous and it gives you a real rub down compare to other similar prices scrubs (The Body Shop I am looking at you displeased).

So if you are into those oil based sugar and salt scrubs I would highly recommend the ones from Rituals. These are staples in my bathroom and I always keep a few of them at hand. Good stuff!
