The Ritual of Banyu review by Rituals
The Ritual of Banyu review by Rituals
“Inspired by an ancient Balinese water ceremony, The Ritual of Banyu helps you wash away the physical and spiritual dust of everyday life. Honour the power of water. Shower yourself in the goodness of Giant Kelp and Bali Sea Salt and find well-being in its nourishing embrace.”
The Ritual of Banyu
The word Banyu means water. In Bali there is the self-cleansing ceremony Banyu Pinaruh. The Balinese cleanses themselves in water, both physically and spiritually. This ritual celebrates water as the flowing wisdom of life. It reminds us to honor water, the essence of life.
Now onto the new summer limited edtion by Rituals. There are quite a few new products with the Ritual of Banyu line. For example there is a water bottle with gemstones, a 20 second splash mask and a kitchen set with hand soap and hand balm. In this post I will review 3 products of the Ritual of Banyu line: the body cream, shower foam and body scrub.
To start with the Ritual of Banyu, Jump into the sea body cream, this is a rich body cream. The cream contains Balinese sea salt and giant kelp. The Balinese sea salt is very rich in minerals and nutrients. Kelp is a marine plant and it contains a lot of antioxidants & vitamins and it leaves a healthy glow on the skin. Luckily the body cream does not contain shimmer. So this is perfect for me, since I do not like glitters in my creams. Since the body cream hydrates & soothes the skin and has a cooling effect, you can use the Banyu body cream as an after-sun alternative, which is perfect for the summer days.
The body cream comes in a beautiful blue see through jar of 200 ml and the cream suits any skin type. Best of all, it contains no silicones, parabens or mineral oils. I really like the scent and texture of this body cream.
Foaming shower gel
Secondly, this is the Sea treasure Shower foam of the Ritual of Banyu. The shower foam is gel based and when it touches water it turns into foam. As you see on the picture, one pump is enough and it creates a lot of foam. Furthermore the shower foam also contains Balinese Sea Salt which purifies the skin and the kelp minerals revitalizes and hydrates the skin.
I love the shower foams by Rituals. They are wonderful to use in the shower, because they produce so much foam. The shower foam comes in a can of 200 ml and it smells divine.
At last but not least, onto the Ritual of Banyu Purifying sea salt scrub. The scrub is very grainy and has a rich combination of Maris sea salt and giant kelp, which helps to remove dead skin cells in a gentle way. Did you know that sea salt is a great purifier that wards off negative energy? With the sea salt scrub you can exfoliate, revitalise and detoxify your skin. Using the scrub twice a week will give you a soft and radiant skin. Additionally you can also use the scrub on dry skin and the scrub nourishes and energizes the skin.
The sea salt scrub comes in a beautiful blue jar of 450 grams. I really like the scrub and the blue lid of this jar is exquisite.
Overall, the Ritual of Banyu line has a fresh summer scent, which makes you feel like you are on a beach holiday. With this line you can indulge yourself with a fresh water scent. If you are wondering what the scent smells like, I must admit that it is similar to the Cool Water for Woman scent by Davidoff. Secondly, I think that the Ritual of Banyu line has a fresh after the rain and ocean smell.
I like the Ritual of Banyu line, the packaging is beautiful in different shades of blue and it has a nice soft scent. Since the scent is so fresh and the body cream has no shimmer, it is an ideal unisex line for both men and women. I also bought the perfume Océan Infini, but I will review the perfume later. You can buy the Ritual of Banyu products in the Rituals stores and their webshop.
