We've done the research on our favorite products from Sephora, Ulta, and even Costco—only to realize we had yet to dig into an NYC mainstay that offers everything from hair, makeup, and skincare to wigs and Halloween costumes. Ricky's has been a part of our lives for as long as we could save up enough money to buy a devil costume. It's the first place I bought dry shampoo (a life-changing day) and my favorite place to wander when I needed to test beauty products to forget my day. And now, we're bringing the goods to you with seven of their best-selling, most effective, holy grail products. Keep reading to find out which ones made the cut.
Developed in the '90s in Japan, this foot-care product eliminates dry, rough, dead skin from your feet, courtesy of its peeling chemical exfoliant. All you have to do is shower to soften your skin, apply the booties under a fitted pair of socks, and gently rub your feet in the bathtub after an hour. The peeling continues over the course of a few days and results in shockingly smooth skin.
It's probably not the first time you've heard us raving about this makeup sponge—and it certainly won't be the last. For truly flawless makeup during the day and well into the night, all you need is a damp Beautyblender and your favorite foundation. It blends seamlessly, helps to cover everything, and makes you look like a celebrity.
The OG of finishing powders, this finely milled product smooths your skin while subtly brightening, color-correcting, and reducing shine. It's especially great for warmer skin tones who need a little extra setting power.
This Aussie-born antibacterial and antimicrobial ointment offers relief from burns, rashes, insect, bites, chafing, and super-dry skin. It pretty much does it all.
As multitasking products go, Moroccanoil very often tops the list. It blends a concentrated amount of argan oil to restore, conditioner, style, and polish your hair. A little goes a long way, so just use a small dollop and run it through your hair, flyaways, and ends.
Subtle and easy to apply, Ricky's house brand falsies are the perfect thing to add a little flutter to your makeup look. You can even size them to your eyes and snip off the ends to create a bespoke set for just $10.
I never thought I'd stray from my prized Mason Pearson until this detangling brush gave it a run for its money. It's really easy on wet hair, won't pull out your precious strands, and smooths gnarly knots in seconds. Plus, it feels like a head massage at the same time.
