I am honestly a little embarrassed about this one, since I got the products as a gift from my friend Katja LAST YEAR for my birthday/christmas …. ouch, I am late.

HAULy friday – 21 – random things

Hello everyone,

days like today really push me to the limit.
We planned to buy wallpaper, white paint and our whole new kitchen, including cutting the workspace wood and the “hole“ for the sink….
We also wanted to start renovating our new apartment.
I tell you things went wrooong.
The paper turned out pretty shitty, meaning it is too thin, because of that it is impossible to cut it with a cutter knife without ripping it. We ended up deciding we will only paint the walls and bring back the wallpaper and glue stuff to the shop.
Also we bought three huge work space woods /counters. All needed yo be shortened which worked, but one needed the hole for the sink even though we brought the sink to the guy at the shop, he cut it too big!!!! He did not apologize, he even blamed me because I put too much pressure on him saying I needed the counter cut today not tomorrow or monday. Bitch what?!
Anyway, I am super tired now and not really able to make a huge HAULy friday pist, so I just want to show you some products I bought a while back, but which I love.

shampoo and conditioner from Balea. I do not like this. I don’t know why so many people wrote good reviews about it, but it just doesn’t work for me.

shaving from from Balea. Very nice and good smelling. I just love it.

honey mania body scrub from The body shop.
In general I love the scrubs from them. I recent also bought one from Rituals, which I love even more and one from Balea which I still have to try.

HAULy friday – seventeen – Rituals

Hey everyone,

today  I have a different HAULy friday for you.

hauly

After I already bought one of their shower foams a while ago and since I loved it so much I decided to visit my local Rituals Shop. I wanted to try their Sakura (cherry blossom) range so bad, but since they are not really cheap I was hesitant to buy more.

Anyway, that day I went in knowing this could be dangerous haha but I still did and started sniffing around. The sales lady came running and went through the whole Cherry Blossom Ritual with me. She wet my hands, used the hand oil, the peeling, the shower foam and later the body cream. I was in heaven!

I smelled incredibly nice and actually wanted to lick myself haha

Oh well, sold. I decided against one of their big packs, which included 200 ml Zensation (shower foam), 150 ml Rice Scrub (hand scrub), 100 gr Sakura Scrub (body scrub) & 70 ml Magic Touch (body creme). Why?
Simply because I wanted the the full sized products.

So here is what I bought.

All together I paid around 60 euro, but it was totally worth it!

I used all of these products a few times already and I really love them.
Because of their price they are for sure no everyday items, but I always use them when I am super stressed or had a shitty day/week.

So I am sure these will last me a while.

The peeling is really nice, you don’t need much but it gives you really soft skin. In combination with the shower foam and body creme it is even better. For me this is a little luxury treat once in a while, to pamper myself and feel good. Mostly after I used them, I will light the candle and relax watching my favorite shows. The whole Ritual is very calming.

So far I also bought the Shower Foam from Trees, which is a Douglas brand I think, but I mostly don’t use it. I liked the smell at the beginning, but it is kind of too strong for me now.

Kneipp also came out with two different shower foams. But more on that later^^

I will definitely re-buy those products and really hope they will never discontinue them. I am a big fan of these.

Have you ever tried Rituals products? I know they sell a lot of different products and scents, also Make-up, but since I almost never use Make-up anymore I was not really paying attention to that area of the shop^^
They also sell home goods like towels, room scents and clothes. I know right now they have an offer where you get a free Hammam beach towel if you buy things over the value of 40 euro.

Let me know which Ritual products you like. I am curious to read your opinion.

Have a relaxed long weeked (if Monday is a holiday for you).
