When's the last time you announced to Facebook that your body scrub was the beauty-product equivalent of "angels singing?" It happened to me, and this is the item that prompted the hyperbole.
Brand new to the states and available only at Barneys, Dutch line Rituals was founded on the idea that little breaks in the day can become soothing, well, rituals. Washing your hands? May as well feel great. Hopping in the shower? Try the Sakura Scrub Sugar Body Scrub, which has a cherry-blossom-scent that smells—yes—divine.
Made with organic sugar and softening oils, the scrub feels almost indescribably delicious on the skin. And it does what nearly every other product claims to do: makes your skin glow (no, it really does.) I spotted it at the posh department store and had to do a triple take at the price: $25. I don't typically treat Barneys like a Sam's Club, but for this? Chicago has a long, skin-drying winter, is all I'm saying.
