Rituals Cosmetics Giveaway
Between everyday life, traveling and picking up extra work, I’ve been so busy lately I haven’t had time to keep up my beauty routines. Thanks to Rituals Cosmetics – one of my latest discoveries – I have a recently renewed commitment to “me time”.
Birchbox invited me and a few other bloggers to the Rituals Cosmetics store on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for an exclusive look at their line. We were treated to a light brunch with pastries and breakfast cocktails.
We got to meet the ladies who run the Upper West Side Location and learn a little about the brand. The company was founded in Amsterdam in 2000 by Raymond Cloosterman who believes our daily routines – you know, washing your face, exfoliating, etc. – shouldn’t be chores, but rituals we actually enjoy. At one point in time pampering myself was a relaxing part of my regular routine but somewhere along the lines I allowed so many tasks to cloud up my time that this became just another chore on my to-do lists.
Rituals Cosmetics has shops in Barcelona, London, Paris, Lisbon, and as of March 2014 New York City! Not only do they have a store on the Upper West Side and SoHo, but they set up shop in the Barney’s locations on Madison Avenue, Wooster St and in Brooklyn. Don’t live near any of these locations? Their products are also available online!
My favorite thing about Rituals? It’s an affordable luxury. With the exception of a few skincare items and their bathrobes, almost everything in the store is under $25! It seems they don’t have sales often, but they regularly run promotions such as free products when you spend a certain amount.
Rituals has several collections – Ayurveda, Hammam, Laughing Buddha, Sakura, Tatsu, and Tao – that are meant to invoke different feelings. Since I’m in need of a little good luck I walked away with the body scrub, shower oil and body cream from the Laughing Buddha collection. For centuries, rubbing Buddha’s belly has symbolized good luck and prosperity. This tradition is the inspiration for a collection of uplifting products that celebrate this positivity. I’m hoping by getting back to my rituals Laughing Buddha will help restore some happiness in my life!
I’m not the only one who deserves good fortune and prosperity, I want you to have some too! I’m spreading the fortune and giving a set of Laughing Buddha products to one lucky follower! Leave a comment telling me what rituals you want to get back to and follow Living Fiesta on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to be entered to win.
