Those who have been following this blog for a while already know how much of a fan I am of skincare. I love trying and discovering new brands and products, and with time I’ve created a routine that I religiously follow.

I remember that I started worrying about my skin when I got acne as a teenager. That’s when I started looking for products that could make my skin look better and smoother, but I have to admit that was so boring and tedious. Every day I had to remember about doing the routine, no matter if I was too tired or lazy to do it. I was just not excited about skincare, so I didn’t take it very seriously (to be honest), and that’s one of the reasons why I had to deal with acne for such a long time.

But, I have to say that with time I’ve changed my mind. I’ve learned that taking it seriously has its benefits, and now I have so much fun with it. Skincare is meant to be a fun time rather than a boring obligation. You just have to get playful with products, have a nice and relaxing time and, last but not least, pamper yourself. That’s what it is all about.

I recently received the Holi collection by Rituals, a skincare brand I’ve known and used since I’m a little kid and my mum bought their products. The aim behind this collection is to have fun and play while pampering yourself, with a few products that are so colourful and smell like heaven. As soon as I smelled these products, I knew I had to try them, so that’s what I did. I’ve used the shower foam and gel so far, and they’re so gentle with my skin (because sometimes it gets a bit irritated with chemical products) and made me smell like fruits and flowers all day.

Do you think skincare is a tedious or fun time? Have you ever tried Rituals’ products? Definitely tell me so in the comments down below and I’ll be glad to read!

  1. It’s much more fun when you see the results after so much effort. I share the same sentiments with you. When I was younger, I was too lazy to even clean my face before bed. Even when I had so much acne and got to a point when I felt desperate to get rid of it, I still wasn’t a fan.
    But now, years later, I’m more intimate with my skin, and pickier with what I use.
    I’m not really one for fragrances, but it’s a fun treat once in a while.
    Thanks for sharing!


    • It all starts with laziness until you realise that “hard work” pays off! And yes, being picky with skincare products is really important!
