Rituals Laughing Buddha

Last sum­mer I spent a few days in Ham­burg. In my hotel room there were some prod­ucts by Rit­u­als, which I really enjoyed using. So back home, I went to the Rit­u­als shop in Dort­mund (Thier Galerie) and bought some of their skin care. The prod­ucts from the “Laugh­ing Bud­dha Range” are by far my favourites. Today, I want to show you the shower oil and the body cream.

Rituals

For­tune Oil Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood, 8,50€

This car­ing shower oil trans­forms into a soft foam when you rub it on your skin and leaves it incred­i­bly soft. Espe­cially in win­ter I pre­fer shower oils to gels, because they are bet­ter for dry skin. It smells AMAZING, like fresh spicy oranges. The bot­tle con­tains 200ml, but it’s pretty effi­cient, so that you don’t need much and it will last long.

Touch of Hap­pi­ness, 6,50€

This is actu­ally a mini size of the rich and nour­ish­ing body cream, which con­tains 70ml. It smells like sweet orange and cedar wood – a very warm fra­grance. I mostly use this cream for my hands, because the shower oil is rich enough, so that you don’t nec­es­sar­ily need to use a cream. My hands become very vel­vety after apply­ing it.

Rit­u­als is a pretty young brand, which was founded in 2000. The prod­ucts are not tested on ani­mals and are all suit­able for veg­e­tar­i­ans. The prices are slightly higher, but I think every­one needs a lit­tle bit of lux­ury every now and then.

Do you know Rit­u­als? Which prod­ucts are your favourites?

[Monthly Favourites] October

Octo­ber is almost over that means it’s time to write some­thing about my monthly favourites. To mix it up a lit­tle bit, I will show you my beauty favourites and also my gen­eral life favourites.

BEAUTY FAVOURITES

Beauty Favourites

1. MAC Blush “Fleur Power”, 23,50€

This is a colour that goes with every­thing. Although it’s pink, it’s not THAT bright, so you can use it in Octo­ber as well as in May. I like it espe­cially for its stay­ing power, it stays on the whole day.

2. May­belline Jade The Rocket Volum’ Express Mas­cara, 9,99€

I love this mas­cara! I have quite short lashes and it gives them a great vol­ume and length. I have had a lot more expen­sive mas­caras in the past and they don’t do their job as good as the Rocket mascara.

3. EOS Lip­balm “Mint”, 4$

I can’t imag­ine liv­ing with­out this lit­tle green thing. It is such a great Lip­balm with great mois­ture. I bought in in New York and I’m sad that I got only this one. I use it once every day when I go to bed and that’s enough because my lips stay super soft.

4. Catrice Eye­shadow “Oh It’s Tof­fee­ful!”, 2,79€

Nor­mally, I’m not a eye­shadow per­son. I don’t wear it often, but this month I bought this golden one from Catrice and have used it a lot. I like that the shim­mer is very sub­tle and ele­gant with no glit­ter in it.

5. Essence Long Last­ing Lip­stick “Nat­ural Beauty”, 2,29€

I bought this lip­stick a few weeks ago as you can see in my lat­est Haul. It’s a great my-lips-but-better colour for every­day and I wore it al lot in octo­ber. The stay­ing power isn’t the best, but it’s ok.

LIFE FAVOURITES

Life Favoriten

1. TV Series “Castle”

When I saw the first two episodes of Cas­tle I hated it, but then I got used to it and now I’m obsessed. I watched the first three sea­sons in Octo­ber and now I’m already watch­ing the fourth. Spe­cial thanks to my lovely friend Lisa, who infected me <3

2. Yan­kee Candles

For me it’s hard to find good can­dles,  unfor­tu­nately I get headaches from most of them. But with the Yan­kee ones I’m fine. I can’t really decide which flavour is my favourite, but this month I have been  lik­ing San­dal­wood Vanilla and White Christ­mas a lot.

3. Teekanne Hüttentraum

I’m a huge tea lover. I drink a lot more tea than cof­fee. When I’m sit­ting in front of my lap­top I always have a cup of tea beside me. This flavour  is very win­tery and tastes like oranges and grapes. I have used up almost two pack­ages this month!
