Rituals x Birchbox Beauty Breakfast10:00 AM
What's Your Ritual?BirchBox X Rituals Cosmetics
Last Friday I was invited to a BirchBlogger breakfast event hosted by Rituals Cosmetics. New to the USA but certainly not new to the world, Rituals Cosmetics was born In 2000. When traveling thru Asia, Raymond Cloosterman, found that most of our lives stem from experiencing daily rituals; their philosophy involved ancient story-telling using the best ingredients and fragrances making simple moments in life more meaningful i.e. cleansing rituals, shower rituals etc.
After flourishing a relationship with New York luxury retailer, Barney's, Rituals has expanded into a larger brand. In December 2013 they opened their first free standing store in Soho and more recently on Columbus ave [NYC] in March 2014.
The ambiance of their store alone helps one calm down and find balance upon walking in. For me being greeted by the Buddha mediating under a cherry blossom tree was all I needed!
Their belief: that people should enjoy little moments in life and how important that actually is:
"It all starts with yourself, You can either chose to rush though your day or you can chose to pick the nicest products still affordable priced but conscious with the finest ingredients close to nature." That moment of happiness and feeling of pure luxury should be approachable."We always start with a ritual we always start with a story.
What makes people happy?"
Just as we see in Japan, residents go "flower watching" at the Sakura tree "start of new life" Hanami. That story combined with the ingredients of rice milk and cherry blossoms makes their Sakura line.
Every line has a mini ritual behind it and combing soft and rich textures into every product surely gives a feeling of pure luxury even if its while washing the dishes or having a nice cup of specialty tea.
Transforming everyday rituals into moments of indulgences through their products.
IT'S GIVEAWAY TIME
The lovely team at Rituals was kind enough to give the bloggers each a loaner kit to try at home as well as one for our wonderful readers. We haven't done a giveaway in over a year, here at the Closet Jane Dollhouse, so i've have decided to do a giveaway for the men featuring a foaming gel, body scrub and a hydrating body gel!
