I feel it is time for a good old review with too much talk and with a bit of sense.
I like Rituals as it is one of the few Dutch Cosmetic brands that gotten big outside Holland. They started out in 2000 and I loved them instantly. They had this Eastern (sorry about being vague) holistic feel with shops that were/are decorated in rustic colours & with wash-n-water departments to try out your products immediately.
I have liked washing oils a lot and an because I have been into various Japanese products that work with this concept. Face-oil cleansers came first and the body followed up. I have tried l'Occitane Almond cleansing oil for body too. They often feel much softer on the skin during winter-showers.
I feel like this person in the shower:
Hehehe, not really but I loved the oiled up quality of her skin. Actually with the studs on her back she reminds me of that Aston Kucher "Dude, Where's My Car?" movie.
Storyline: Geeky Aston & friend meet a supergorgeous woman and get into a night partying with other model-types. They turned out to be aliens. (Youtub)
I like how this film
- has a pre-Demi-divorced Aston in it...cuuuuute
- plays with the idea that women who are "too pretty", "too tall", "size 0" etc cannot be human.
- hilarious in that 2000-something kinda way.

It works as simple as the face oils for cleansing:
- Put the oil on either dry or wet skin
- Add water
- Lather into a milky cleansing substance
- Scent: a high fraganced, slightly artificial orange with the hint of a Cedar note
- Scent: Thus a wonderful concoction to get going in the morning (awakening orange) but feel warmer as well (Cedar)
- Substance: Thinner, slightly runny (dry) oil
- Substance: A little goes a longer way
- Afterfeel: more moisturizing than shower-gels etc
- Afterfeel: fragance stays on for quite long
- Price: Quite affordable for € 8.50 for 200 ml/6.7 fl.oz
Availability: At the rituals site (here) for € 8.50 for 200 ml
