Today I am bringing you a beauty review on the Rituals of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel. I received this for free in exchange for my honest review from Influenster and Rituals in the Sol VoxBox. I was so excited to receive this box full of Summer beauty goodies.
THE RITUAL OF SAKURA SHOWER FOAM
Unique gel-to-foam technology based on organic rice milk and cherry blossom. Ultra nurturing, silky-soft cleansing foam with a delicate, sweet fragrance. Enriched with organic rice milk, a natural ingredient that nourishes skin and leaves it silky soft, and cherry blossom, the Japanese symbol of purity.
Simply squeeze a small amount of gel into your hand, massage it into your skin and watch it transform into a rich, creamy, moisturising foam. Lasts up to 50 showers (depending on how much you use!)

Finding a body wash that moisturizes my skin in our hard water, and dry, hot, desert climate is a struggle. When I step out of the shower, my skin feels tight and itchy and dry. Even using lotion doesn’t seem to give relief sometimes.
I have used The Ritual of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel every day this week and here are my thoughts:
- Smells Fantastic
- A little bit goes a long way
- No itch after the shower
- Difficult to use in the shower due to packaging and nozzle
- Doesn’t stay lathered long on a loofah
- Leaves a slight filmy residue on the skin after rinsing
I would have to say this product hits right down the middle for me. Maybe a touch higher. I would rate it about 3-3.5/5 stars.
It made my skin feel great. I didn’t experience the unbearable itch after my showers on the days I used it. It smelled great. It reminded me of baby powder or shaving cream with a light perfume scent. Because it foams, it was easy to dispense just a little bit and lather it up for my whole body.
But, because of the metal bottle and the shaving cream style nozzle, it was quite difficult to use in the shower because it kept slipping in my hand. It also seemed to work better using just my hands versus a loofah because the lather seemed to disappear before I got to my entire body. It also felt like I had a mild filmy residue on my skin when I first rinsed the product off. I felt like I had to use my hands and rub as I rinsed to get rid of the feeling.
Would I use it again? I would. I plan on finishing the bottle I have, and I may even consider buying a full size bottle if it continues to provide me the dry skin relief in the shower.
Would I recommend it? Probably. If you can get past the difficulty of use in the shower, and learn to use the product without a loofah, and just rub your skin as you rinse off the shower gel, I think the moisturizing benefits slightly outweigh those inconveniences. You would also have to overlook the sulfates, but most products on the market still have sulfates, so I don’t think that it too big of a deal.
I am glad that this was one of the products I received for free in exchange for my honest review from Influenster and Rituals.
