Rituals perfumes Beauty / Lifestyle

I hate to admit it, but I’m usually a snob when it comes to perfume. I always used to buy the high end brands such as Dior, Guerlain or Chanel, because I thought they were better than the ‘home fragrances’ such as from Zara or Rituals.

Over the years I have found a routine that works for my skin type. This doesn’t mean I always use the same products, I still try out new things but I have just narrowed it down to specific types of products that I know won’t do any harm for my skin type. I’ve always had sensitive to dry skin but it has gotten worse in...
