Rituals’ new Ayurveda Bath and Body Collection features products that pamper and smoothen, with good for your skin, nourishing ingredients.
The Himalaya Wisdom Crystal Sea Salt Body Scrub ($29; barneys.com) is a rich body scrub that exfoliates deeply, perfect for dry skin. The scent is quite strong, but it leaves behind a silky smooth veil of moisture and a citrusy scent behind. It is a gritty scrub and quite a strong one at that. It does leave behind an oily residue and can make the bathroom floor a bit slippery, but it does what it says and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. I also like to use it as a hand/foot scrub, followed up with a thick layer of moisturizer. The Honey Touch Body Cream ($25; barneys.com) is a rich textured body butter with a strong floral citrus scent. I found the scent to be a tad more stronger than the body scrub, but the cream itself is very nourishing and quick absorbing for something so thick. Overall, I love the duo for smooth, soft skin and there’s a generous amount of product in there with a great ingredient list for the price, but the scent is one to keep in mind if you don’t like very strongly scented body care.
