Quick Review of Ritual Redux

boxset_200_ritual.jpgA couple weeks ago we got a shipment of reformulated products from Ritual. You'll recall the odorologists and scentists felt they could do better, so they went back to mix themselves a new drink. After finishing up our tour with Peter Thomas Roth, we kicked back and cracked open a tall one.

Razor Rinse
This is Ritual's answer to bacteria growing on your razor. Douse the blade in Razor Rinse and you kill germs before they set up camp on your freshing shaven face. Sniffing the previous version of Razor Rinse was not a good idea. There's a lot of alcohol in there, and unless you want to burn your sinuses out, best to let it work on germs. The new version of Razor Rinse doesn't pack as pungent a punch, yet still delivers the good. That said, I still wouldn't recommend inhaling this stuff.
Improvement: B+

Trifecta Body, Hair and Face Wash
Love the all-in-one shampoos and washes. Lather, rinse, replete. Trifecta of old, a little lemony. Trifecta of new, a little lemony. Didn't need that much improvement, and I'm not sure it got much.
Improvement: B+

The Whip Shave Cream
Shaving cream. You know what it does. You know how well it works. And if you've forgotten, go read our review again. This product and the after shave were the two that I had originally felt were most in need of aroma therapy, and I'm happy to report that Ritual has sent these two to the finest shrinks in town. The new Whip is like buttah. Whipped buttah. Still lemony, but enjoyably so. Like when life hands you lemonade, and you make yourself comfortable and enjoy the lemonade, and think about all the lemons you didn't have to make into lemonade.
Improvement: A-

The Balm Post Shave Gel
Hold onto your hats kids cause there's a new kid in town, and he's going deep. If there's one product in this Ritual Redux that has hit a home run, no, a grand slam, it's The Balm. Using the Balm II, son of Balm, is like spreading clean on your face. You know when you're walking down the street and some woman passes you who smells so fresh and clean you want to turn and follow her? That's what I'm talking about. Kudos to the folks at Ritual for The Balm! I fully expect people to be following me now.
Improvement: A+
