Rituals, The Ritual of Dao Shower Foam - review


Good morning all. I hope you're having a good day so far x

I've been going through my drafts posts and I've once again realised just how many I've got sitting there waiting to be written, so rather than editing the hundreds of photos I've got lying around, I thought I may as well kick-off with a post containing photos I've already edited.

After that I really need to get myself organised here. I have a back-log of unedited photos and also of products sitting around waiting to be photographed. It's all starting to get overwhelming!

One by one : )

So yes, first up is this Rituals Shower Foam. I've posted on a few of these, but this The Ritual of Dao version is a new scent that I haven't tried before. While I don't mind the fragrance, it's definitely not my favourite so I likely wouldn't buy anything from this line of Rituals products.

Still, the quality of the product itself is the same as all the other versions of this shower foam that I've tried, so no complaints there! And fragrance, of course, just boils down to personal preference: others may love this scent.

Rituals claims/product details:
  • Allow your skin to find harmony with the relaxing fragrance of white lotus and the nourishing qualities of Yi Yi Ren, which is regularly used in Chinese medicine
  • Simply squeeze a small amount of gel into your palm, massage it into your skin and watch it transform into a rich, creamy, moisturising foam
  • Lasts up to 50 showers 
  • RRP $15 AUD for 200ml


As I've mentioned in previous posts about these shower gels, they're honestly the best gels I've ever used and I always want to have one in my collection. I love them. 

Like the others, this one'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.

With all of the Rituals gels I've tried before, the scent is quite strong (not overpowering, but definitely there), but with this one, it's more gentle and I'm not as aware of it. It's also not as interesting as the other fragrances I've tried - it smells a bit like floral soap, nice but inoffensive - so it's not the one I would personally choose. If however you're not big on fragranced products, then this green line could be the Rituals range for you.

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. I've given the Sakura version an HG tag (see here). This one's just as good in terms of quality, but the fragrance doesn't wow me. 

The other good things about these foams are that they're not too expensive and my bottles always last for ages - much longer than the 50 showers stated in the claims - possibly because I ration them, but a little does go a long way.

Just divine.
