Rituals is one of my absolute favorite beauty brands. They’re huge in Europe, but still relatively under the radar here in the U.S… for now, that is. All of their collections are inspired by an ancient ritual from around the world and the products that result are nothing short of divine.
Rituals’ latest collection is Happy Buddha and the name says it all. The products in this line are scented with sweet orange and cedar wood, so the moment you inhale you instantly feel happier and energized. The collection includes all your body care essentials like shower gel and body scrub, but my personal favorite is the dry oil. It’s heavenly.
First, there’s the scent which is perfectly balanced. I was worried the orange would be way too citrusy and overpowering, but the cedar wood definitely mellows it out. I apply the body oil when I get out of the shower in the morning and regularly find myself sniffing my hands and arms while at work because the fragrance is honestly just so pleasant.
If you’re hesitant about a body oil in summer, don’t be. This is probably the lightest, fastest-drying oil I’ve ever used and I love a good body oil. One small spritz covers a pretty good surface area and within seconds it’s completely absorbed with no greasy or oily residue. It does, however, leave your skin insanely soft with just the perfect hint of scent.
I actually used the oil on my sunburned skin and it was just the soothing I needed. Instead of my skin feeling dry and scaly, the oil restored smoothness and moisture.
If you’ve never tried a body oil, this is definitely the one to start with. Trust me, you’ll be hooked in no time.
