Rituals, The Ritual of Sakura Shower Foam - review


This is easily the most amazing shower gel I've ever used.

You know how every now and then you come across a product and think: 'I'm never going to use anything else, ever again'? That's how I felt when I first tried this foam a few years ago, when we lived in Berlin (Rituals is a European brand) - and now that the company has happily joined us in Australia, I had exactly the same reaction when I tried it again, after a long time between drinks.

I don't think I could ever go back to anything else, now that I know this foam is within reach!

  • RRP $15 AUD for 200ml (see au.rituals.com, and look out for specials)


Reckon I've already said it all about this - it's honestly the best shower gel I've ever used and I don't plan to ever be without one, whether in this scent or one of the many others available (I want to try them all!). 

It's a gel product in a pressurised can that comes out clear but then foams up quickly on contact with water. A little goes a long way with this so don't squirt out too much: start small and then go from there, once you know how much the gel expands into its foam state.

As soon as the product foams up, the scent hits your nose and it's just beautiful - one of the best fragrances I've ever smelled. I hadn't tried this particular version of the foam before (I'd tried the pink one) and I can see it being my favourite. I do have other scents in stock  (couldn't help myself ; )) so I'll let you know which one I prefer. This one is sweet, complex and a little tart/refreshing at the same time. It's perfectly balanced, and I would buy this for the scent alone - even if I didn't love the product. Which I do.

Once on the skin, the foam feels beautifully rich, creamy and luxurious. Almost velvety. I can't remember ever using a body cleanser that feels so wonderful in texture: it's just gorgeous. The product cleans well too - without stripping or irritating my dry, sensitive skin - so that's another plus, and another reason why I don't plan to ever be without this foam again.

All in all, I obviously love this stuff and I've given it an HG tag. It's perfect. Plus it's not too expensive and my bottles always last for ages - much longer than the 50 showers stated in the claims - possibly because I ration it, but a little does go a long way.

Just divine. Easily one of my favourite products of all time.
