Little things in everyday life – Rituals Cosmetics Haul
If you follow my blog for a while you’ll know I’m all about making everyday life simple, more relaxing and happy. These days to be honest it doesn’t matter whether you’re a mom or a student, everyone has hectic life, since we live in such a fast paced world. I’m a stay at home mom, so my working place is my home, and I never really leave my working place ever. So for me at the end of the day I like to spend some time just for myself, and by myself, and yes I do sacrifice my sleep for that. For me “alone time” is more important than sleep. Late at night I like to unwind and just relax. I like taking a shower with my favorite products at night and it helps me sleep better and feel better.

The Rituals Stores were everywhere in Barcelona, and that really intrigued me. I went in the store and came out with a big giant bag. Absolutely love the concept, the scent, no animal testing, and if I be honest the “better for you” products smell weird and just don’t work right. But these Rituals bath and body products are absolutely ahhmazing.
This shower gel formula is so unique. It reminds me of shaving foam. It’s a shower gel which foams up like a shaving gel once you start rubbing it on your body. I don’t know about you but a good foaming product makes me feel clean. I can’t handle no-foam products AT ALL.

This body cream combines the ancient Ayurvedic ingredients of Himalayan honey, the perfect skin softener, and Indian rose for its relaxing effect on body and mind.
In all honesty I’m not picky with body scrubs, but from now on I might be xP Himalaya Scrub: Revitalise your skin through deep cleansing with this ultra-softening and cooling body scrub.

Apparently I did enough damage to get a mini perfume gift set. And oh they SMELL GOOD ! I don’t know how to describe scent, but all I can say is, they smell AMAZING. Gladly these mini bottles are spray bottles, going straight in to my beauty bag, yes in the diaper bag pssttt xP I’m a sucker for good smelling products and not the chemically or super over-empowerinf and sweet ones. I’m very picky with the scents, and I think it’s such a personal preference I find that these Rituals products scents are right up my alley. They have a very natural and authentic feel which I love.
