Ritual is a Dutch company that produces body and home products such as shower gels, creams, handwashes, scented candles, make up, washing up liquid and tea. They aim to put the magic back into life and provide products that make everyday things like washing special.
Zensation is a foaming shower gel in their relaxation range. It comes in a 200ml metal container with a pump on top. The pump feels sturdy and is easy to use. I found I could dispence the amount I wanted without any problem so there's no waste.
The product itself is initially a clear gel. Once you rub it however it activates and becomes a rich creamy foam. The foam is rather thick, a bit like beaten egg whites, and easily smooths on to your body. The texture allows it to double as a shaving foam too.
The gel is scented with rice milk and cherry blossom. Initially you'll notice a light floral scent which deepens to show fruity and musk notes. The rice milk makes it smell creamy too. The scent is gorgeous and delicate with enough power to be able to smell it while using but not so much it's overwhelming. This is in the relaxing range and they're got it right- the scent does feel very gentle and soothing, just what I'd expect from something with Zen in the name.
After using this my skin melt moisturised. I like that as it cuts down on the amount of moisturiser I use- 2 in 1 products are great for saving a few pennies. I also found that the scent lingered on my skin afterwards.
This normally costs £6.25 from Ritual stores or the website (www.rituals.com) although the Gatwick store is doing a special cheap deal (around £3) on them at the moment so if you're flying I recommend treating yourself to this.
