Don’t you just love it when you discover a new product or brand and it becomes one of your staples? When we first tried the new collection from Rituals, the Samurai collection instantly became one of our favourites. Your entire grooming routine will work in harmony to create a spa experience from home due to the array of products from bodycare and haircare to shaving. Find out about this awesome brand here and learn exactly why it deserves a place on your grooming shelf. Bonus: the scent will no doubt get you noticed too because it’s freakin’ awesome. All the products are available for pocket-friendly prices that won’t break the bank!
Each Rituals collection was inspired by an ancient story or legend. Products are then developed to portray the story behind it. Inspired by Japanese Samurai warriors, the Samurai collection was made to mimic the attention to detail when the warriors went to battle. Each collection also has a specific set of ingredients which define it from the other ranges. These ingredients each have unique qualities to set aside your experience of using their products as opposed to other brands.
One of the main features of Rituals is the luxurious experience you’ll get whilst using them. Products recreate a luxury spa treatment, from the comfort of your own home. With strong and satisfying fragrances exclusive to each collection, they have the ability to enrich little things in life. Rituals can truly transform daily tasks into revitalising rituals.
‘For centuries, the ancient Japanese Samurai warriors paid great attention to their personal appearance. Their careful grooming traditions were aimed at creating an appearance that portrayed power, control and confidence to support their battles and challenges. Inspired by these warriors, we created the Samurai collection for men that will help you face the challenges of everyday life by being groomed to perfection.’ – Rituals
Organic bamboo and Japanese mint empower and energise the body and mind. Due to this, they are the two main ingredients in the Samurai collection. Organic bamboo smooths and nourishes skin whilst being a symbol of stamina. For a luxury spa treatment from home from your daily grooming routine, find out about each of the products here…
One of the ultimate ways to relax whilst rejuvenating your body is to take a hot soak in the bath. The Rituals Samurai Bath Foam works to cleanse and soften your skin whilst infusing your bathroom with luxurious scents. Your stresses will be melted away to help you to achieve ultimate satisfaction in no time.
If you don’t own a bath or prefer to shower to relax, the Rituals Samurai Cool Down Shower Gel is perfect for you. Not only does this shower gel leave your skin cleansed and invigorated, it also doubles as a shampoo so your hair can enjoy the benefits of this legendary brand also.
The Rituals Samurai Ice Shower Gel will provide you with the ultimate invigorating cleanse. For those who enjoy spending time in the gym or exercising regularly, this shower gel is a great choice. It’s specifically designed to give a cooling sensation to ease aching and sore muscles. It also refreshes you after your workout.
When taking a quick shower in the morning, the rush can leave you feeling stressed and unprepared. The Rituals Samurai Shower Foam will provide you with that extra boost on those busy mornings to leave you feeling invigorated and ready to take on the day. You also only need a very small amount to cleanse your whole body thoroughly as the foam expands, making a bottle last for a long while.
Want to achieve nourished and strong hair? Rituals Samurai Cool Hair Shampoo is the way forward. Being a scalp balancing shampoo, it regulates moisture balance, therefore keeping hair in optimum condition with a natural glossy shine. If you suffer with dandruff, don’t worry, this gentle cleansing conditioner also has anti-dandruff properties.
Once you’ve cleansed your body, you want to stay feeling and smelling fresh for longer. Offering 24 hour protection, the Rituals Samurai Antiperspirant Deodorant Spray leaves your skin soothed, revitalised and fresh. It’s also available as a deodorant stick.
It’s important to maintain moisture levels in your skin after cleansing to keep your skin both strong and soft. For protected yet supple skin, invest in the Rituals Samurai Hydrating Body Moisturiser, leaving you with a pleasant scent lingering for hours.
Does your skin often become irritated by shaving? Rituals Samurai Magic 3-in-1 Shaving Cream provides extra protection during and after shaving by soothing and calming the skin for long-lasting comfort. A blend of basil and ginseng are used in the formula. Together, these hydrate and moisturise the skin. Consequently, this multi-tasking cream lifts and softens hairs for a closer and smoother shave, preventing razor burns and nicks. Therefore, your face will experience the same luxurious care from Rituals that the rest of your body receives.
For a slightly different, yet just as luxurious shaving experience, the Rituals Samurai Shave Shaving Cream is perfect. Occurring when reacting with water, it has a gel to foam consistency which softens and moisturises hair to instantly prep for removal.
If you love the masculine fragrance of the Samurai collection, the Rituals Samurai Scented Candle will infuse your home to captivate you. Overall, this will help create feelings of relaxation and refreshment. Housed in a branded glass container, the warming scent released will easily fill any room. With this in mind, it’s perfect to light at any point when you want to relax.
Sometimes it’s difficult to decide which products to try so why not invest in the Rituals Pure Refreshment Gift Set? Containing the foaming shower gel, cooling shower gel, cool scrub and antiperspirant spray, your grooming shelf will be the epitome of men’s luxury grooming. It’s a great way to try out some of the products and for under £20, it’s an absolute bargain! You’ll discover why the Rituals Samurai collection is a strong favourite here at Mankind!
