The Rituals of Karma Review

Last year I had my first experience with Rituals products when I got to review The Rituals of Advent Calendar. I was delighted to try the products. I feel like I had been missing something in the bath and body world before then.

Rituals products are high quality and beautifully packaged. If you’re wondering, yes I have bought several Rituals products since reviewing that advent calendar last year. I still have a bunch more on my wish list.

This year I got to try the new The Rituals of Karma products.

I received the gorgeous products pictured about to review from Rituals and Tryazon. I received a full size The Rituals of Karma shower gel, The Rituals of Karma body cream, and The Rituals of Karma body scrub.

Let’s start with the body cream. You receive a generous amount of body cream in your beautiful container. A little goes along way. In my opinion, it’s the perfect consistency. It’s not too thin or too thick. It’s felt immediately soothing to my skin and quenched my dry legs.

The Rituals of Karma scent is my favorite scent I’ve tried to date. It is a light, fresh, clean scent using lotus and white tea. Each of the three products I received had the same fragrance the fragrance was consistent between products.

Now let’s talk about the body scrub..

Again beautifully packaged same gorgeous scent. I’m a fan of body scrubs. I find myself using body scrubs more in the winter when my skin get dry and itchy from the dry heat and in the summer to keep that glow. If I had any complaints about this particular product though it would just be that it’s almost too oily for my liking. The scrub itself on my skin is amazing. But it left an oil film in my tub for a couple days.

Now onto the shower gel…

As I’ve mentioned earlier I love Rituals products. If I was placed inside a Rituals store and they told me I could pick 1 item in any scent I choose, I would pick this product. No joke. I love the shower gels already. It’s a shower gel but it foams a little so I love the consistency of it. The Rituals of Karma is my favorite scent so far. I also love the pump on their shower gels.

Fun fact, this is my birthday month so I needed to redeem my Sephora birthday gift. So when I picked my birthday gift I also bought another can of The Rituals of Karma shower gel because I loved it that much and I don’t want to run out.

Which brings me to another point. You can find The Rituals of Karma products at Sephora and Rituals.com. There are also gift sets available that would make an awesome gift. Rituals products are more affordable than you might assume too. I’m also eyeing up their fragrances. I might have to treat myself to one of those.

I received these products at no cost from Rituals and Tryazon. Any opinions expressed are my own.

Era Organic Complete – This Has Been A Skin Saver

I’m a healthcare worker in a local hospital. I work part time so I only work 4 hours a day (right now). But in that 4 hours if I’m not using hand sanitizer and washing my hands at least 20 times in my 4 hours there then it’s probably more. My hands are drying out. I’m wearing a mask while at work, believe it or not it’s drying my face out. Normal every day moisturizers just aren’t cutting it. I’m taking hot showers when I get home and that’s drying out my skin.

Era Organic Complete has been such a treat for my body.

Era Organics complete moisturizes, protects, soothes, and quenches dry skin. It uses natural ingredients like manuka honey, aloe vera, hemp seed oil, and MSM among other ingredients.

Right off the bad, opening the container offers a sweet aroma that smells something like honey and coconut. You can see the thick creamy moisturizer but feeling it is when you know it’s gonna work. The cool, thick and creamy consistency allows you to get a lot of moisturizer done with a small amount.

I’ve applied this to my face, hands, and body. It’s instant relief for my dry skin and even my cracked skin on my hands. The moisturizing feeling lasts for hours. The fragrant scent last a while too. I like to put this on after my shower. Then I’ll some times apply more to my face and hands before work.

The description on Era Organics website states it’s for eczema as well. My little ones had eczema as babies and I could totally see how this would work for that. Manuka honey, in and of itself, is set to ease some of the discomfort and eczema.

I was blessed to receive this sample from Era Organics to review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

I did an unboxing video with the help of my daughter. I unboxed the first 7 days of the advent calendar. I you don’t want to see the products because you’re planning on buying this calendar you might not want to watch it. It would be a spoiler. The back of the box does list the product the box contains but it doesn’t say which days.
