Do you know about Cult Crushes from Ricky’s NYC? Read and enter the giveaway

As someone who is addicted to the world of beauty I read a lot of blogs. I subscribe to a few that are just about subscriptions. I usually don’t order but when I learned about Ricky’s NYC and their box Cult Crushes I was like white on rice. I was impressed by what I saw. Ricky’s NYC is a store in obviously New York City, one I always wanted to visit. Their box contains products that they sell in their stores and on their website. When I first subscribed the box was $11.99 which included shipping, it just went up to $14 with shipping.

I’m going to share with you my first box and explain why there’s a giveaway for a box that I’m really happy with.

Cult Crushes from Ricky’s NYC

Like most sub boxes you don’t know what is going to be inside until it comes. This box is what I received but they kept emailing that the boxes were supposed to contain Bioderma Sensiblo Micellar Water but since they hadn’t received their shipment a substitute would be send with the Bioderma being sent separately later.

Bioderma Sensiblo H2O Micellar Water

Cult Crushes, my second box

I am perfectly happy with this box so this was fine with me. Lo and behold just a few days later I received another whole box that included Bioderma. Wow, double the fun for $11.99. That’s when the idea of a giveaway came to mind. I’ll show you everything I received in the two boxes and then share what one US subscriber can win.

pure Paw Paw Ointment (watermelon and strawberry)

Each box contained a Pure Paw Paw Ointment. There are 4 flavors total (watermelon, strawberry, grape, passionfruit). I’ve been using Watermelon so that leaves Strawberry for the giveaway. I’d been using Dr. Paw Paw as a lipbalm and that’s what I thought this was. But this is a less expensive version (6.99) with some yummy scents. Pure Paw Paw is a topical ointment used for dry, chapped, cracked lips and skin to soothe and smooth.

Ingredients: Petrolatum, Carica Papaya Extract, Cera Alba, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Flavour.

Extra notes: Made with fresh Australia Fermented fruit, not tested on animals.

Delicious and helpful. A winner for this subscription

Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak in Atomic Cherry

The original box contained Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak in Atomic Cherry. This is a product that I wanted to try for a long time so you know this is a keeper and a winner! I’m unable to find it on Ricky’s site but it’s sold at Ulta in different scents and Amazon. “Dr. Lip Bang’s Lip Freak is an All-Natural Buzzing Lip Balm. Just pucker up and smear this awesome balm on your kisser. Within a minute, your lips are going to freak out! We’re talking about a crazy, vibrating buzz that isn’t like anything you’ve ever felt before.” Have I tried it yet? No but I’m ready!

J.Cat Aura Glow Liquid Highlighter

I received a  J.Cat Aura Glow Liquid Highlighter in each box. There are 5 shades of this highlighter and I’m keeping the lightest one, Crystal Sand, and the winner will receive Twilight which is a more bronze shade. For a swatch see Ulta who carries all 5 shades for $8.99)

J.Cat Aura Glow Liquid Highlighter: Crystal Sand and Twilight

“J.Cat Beauty Aura Glow Liquid Highlighter instantly creates glow that is designed to complement all skin tones and all skin types. You can mix it to your favorite primer, foundation or your moisturizer to add illuminous. Create and customize that perfect tone by mixing 2 or more liquid highlighters. The smooth application blends effortlessly and gives the perfect hydrated, luminous finish that completes your look.” Aura Glow contains Argan Oil to help hydrate your skin.So far the score is 3 to rave about and one more coming right up!

BH Cosmetics Sculpt and Blend Mini2 3 piece brush set

BH Cosmetics Sculpt and Blend Mini 2 3 piece brush set arrived in both boxes and it’s really a great item. I’m a big fan of brushes and even though I give them away often I still have a gazillion and love more. I believe this brush set was made exclusively for Ricky’s NYC since I haven’t found it elsewhere – look what’s in it

The brushes are about 4.5 inches long and very nice. Mine went immediately into my travel bag. The brushes are meant for eyes as well as contouring and highlighting. They are cruelty-free, synthetic dual fiber brushes that are firm but also flexible.

And now for the one product that gets high raves but I can’t use (my nose says no).

The Laundress Wash & Stain Bar

The raves I’ve read about The Laundress are fabulous but this The Laundress Wash & Stain Bar has a too strong fragrance for me. This is a vegetable soap that uses borax, essential oils, and fragrance. I could have used this after Mu Shu last night! This is the full 2 oz bar that Ricky’s and Amazon sells. “The Wash & Stain Bar was designed to clean those hard-to-reach stains from “ring around the collar” to tricky underarms, delicate straps, and more. You’ll love this product for spot treating clothing and upholstery, hand washing, and laundering on-the-go. Great for travel, airplane friendly.”

This start-to-finish laundering collection in Classic scent is the ultimate clean laundry smell, blending lily of the valley and jasmine with sweet musk, sandalwood, and a touch of citrus.

I know the winner will be thrilled with this.
