I was browsing around in Westfield London and as I walked past RITUALS' shop the smell drew me in. The shop has a sink to allow customers to test the products in store, which I think is a great idea. So I got to play with many products before deciding on what to buy. It can be very hard to choose as they have some amazing scents and a huge variety of products but I instantly fell in love with the RITUALS Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil line.
My skin is usually on the dry side but it gets even worse this time of the year and I have to admit I can be a little lazy at applying body moisturiser sometimes, especially if I'm in a hurry. So when it comes to shower products, I tend to favour those that are hydrating. When I tried the Shanti Shower Oil (200ml for £8.50) I was quite impressed with the smooth texture and the fact it leaves the skin feeling slightly moisturised after use. I thought "this is the one"! I can now have a lovely shower and rush to work without feeling so guilty for not applying moisturiser because this oil leaves my skin feeling soft and it has been much less dry since I started using this. Plus the smell is amazing!! I'm sure this would please everyone. It's sweet, without being over powering. Unfortunately, like any other shower product I've tried, the smell only lingers for about an hour or so. But I imagine that if I paired this with the moisturiser of the same line, I'd be smelling like roses for a long time.
I also got intrigued by the Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel (200ml for £8.50). Just like a traditional shaving foam, this comes out of the tube as a gel and turns into a foam as you rub it in. So I grabbed a small version just to try it out. The 50ml size is also quite useful for travelling and can be purchased for £4 (here).

Rituals also has some great gift sets, such as the Ayurveda Rituals for just £28.50. It comes with a full size Shanti Shower Oil, full size Yogi Flow Shower Foam and a travel size body cream and scrub (buy here). I wanted to mention it because I think their sets would make a lovely Mother's Day gift for next Sunday, 15th March. :)
If you're not from the UK, the best way to buy these products is via Feelunique.com. They stock Rituals and ship worldwide, with free delivery on all orders above £10. ;)
