Greetings Beauty Ghouls! Have you come for your pumpkin fix today? Gotta love that beautiful orange ball of antioxidants, vitamins and tastiness! You are in for a real treat, because today I am sharing some of my favorite pumpkin beauty delights for your sensory pleasure. And in a special homage to Halloween (and because I am a girl who LOVES her treats), I am giving away a handful of these delicious rave worthy seasonal goodies in my Halloween Giveaway on Saturday, October 31st (so make sure to come back for your chance to score some treats!)
Right now body massage candles are all the rage! And what’s not to love? Here’s the rub (literally): you burn one of these fab candles for a little while, enjoy the fragrant aroma, and then take the yummy, emollient, hot liquid (made of soy and shea butter, aloe vera, jojoba oil and 100% body safe fragrance oils) and rub it on your hands, feet or on your partner if you are so inclined. It is divine! It feels and smells ‘oh so good’! I love the warm healing feeling on my sore muscles and dry extremities and it is so relaxing. And the pumpkin pie spice reminds me (and the emotional trigger points in my brain) of all the joys, warmth and yumminess of the season. I am especially loving the cute travel sized tin that burns for 15-30 hours and is perfect for those romantic fall getaways. The Pumpkin Pie Spice is only available in Limited Edition so make sure to get yours soon!
This is a yummy smelling, wonderfully gentle mask that is packed with enzymes from fresh, organic pumpkin that naturally exfoliate, soften and even out skin tone. This mask is formulated with a blend of essential fats and vitamins to moisturize and nourish the skin and to help neutralize free radicals that contribute to premature aging. What I really like about this mask beyond the fantastic smell, is that it subtly exfoliates my skin and makes it feel hydrated, clean and smooth. If you have ever tried a pumpkin mask before, you know that they tend to be harsh and irritating to some skin types, but this one is so mild, I think it could even be enjoyed by the most sensitive skin types.
I LOVE the beautiful colorful organic products made by Eminence. I have used many of these products over the years and they are incredibly well-made, effective and smell divine. The Yam & Pumpkin Peel is no exception, it looks and smells so good you can almost eat it (but please don’t!) This is more of an aggressive active product compared to the Sanitas mask mentioned above. When I put this mask on, I really feel it working and doing something to change my skin and afterwards it looks clear and smooth. This mask contains yam and pumpkin pulp, vitamins, and glycolic and lactic acid–that’s alot of skin changing stuff, no wonder I can feel it working!
I just discovered this yummy seasonal gloss the other day at Sephora and instantly fell in love with it! I, of course, was drawn to the fact that it had the word pumpkin on the package, loved the warm golden coppery color, and the pumpkin scent was just right. Then I tried it on and it had the perfect amount of shine, a hint of warm shimmery color and my favorite part: it tastes like pumpkin pie! That’s a winning trifecta in my book!
I hope you enjoyed these autumnal beauty treats and make sure to come back on Halloween for a chance to win some treats of your own!
