In case anyone needed another proof that generous samples and gifts with purchase are the best things to drive sales...
The bottle of Rituals- Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel came as a GWP from a recent Barneys order. I was only vaguely aware of Rituals, a Dutch home and body line that arrived at Barneys last October. I read the press release and promptly forgot all about it. But the minute I started using this foaming spray shower mousse I was hooked. completely and irrevocably.
It's both the texture and the scent. Is Zensation a milky mousse? a gellish milk? It's foaming, gentle, and feels dreamy on skin. And the cherry blossom scent is nothing short of heavenly. I never want to leave the shower. I mean, even more so than usual. The shower gel/foam is light, very gentle and doesn't aggravate my dry skin. I think it's actually soothing and calming.
And that scent. It's pretty and just on the verge of heady but not aggressively so. I wish it came in more products. Currently the only other option is a body scrub which I will get at some point, but I wish they also offered body oils and creams, or even candles. Another incredible thing is the price. It's not what you'd expect at Barneys, as Rituals products are priced between $15-$25, but give the feeling of the most luxurious spa.
