Favorite 5 Cutest Halloween Kbeauty Products of October

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! šŸŽƒšŸ‘»šŸ

October has to be one of the most fun months of the year! From the best of fall weather being in full-bloom to everything spooky and frightening coming out to play for Halloween, October is always chock full of the cute and the creepy!

Your skincare routine can also join in on the fun with some of these Halloween-themed products!



Phyto Tree Pumpkin Magic Moisture Cream

A moisturizing cream that contains deeply hydrating pumpkin extract to help skin feel soothed and soft. Pumpkin is a great ingredient to keep skin plump and moist even in dry conditions. It’s also a great ingredient for those with sensitive skin!



Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

Another pumpkin product great for deep moisturizing overnight! It’s consistency is a cross between a cream and a gel, and is deliciously thick. And of course it comes in the sort of amazing packaging we all have come to expect from Too Cool for School.



Ladykin Vanpir Dark Repair Cream

This is an intense moisturizing cream that contains the resin of Croton Lechleri (aka Dragon’s Blood plant) to help nourish, repair, and regenerate skin. It also contains other herbal extracts like Camellia Sinensis Leaf and Papaya to help soothe and strengthen skin while fading acne scars and treating existing blemishes. If you wish to look forever young (like a vampire!), this cream may be for you!



April Skin Mummy Mud Mask

All the benefits of a mud mask without all the mess! It tightens pores while managing excess sebum and drawing out toxins and  impurities. The secret? Pure Hawaiin clay. You’re one mask away from healthier, more even skin.

Candy O’Lady Little Witch Candy Mask

Enjoy all your favorite things about Halloween all in one mask! Witches, candy, and glowing skin! This mask brightens, protects, and re-vitalizes the skin. It also is made of microfiber which adheres closely to the skin, which helps in delivering moisture and nutrients more effectively and quickly deep into the skin.

Aren’t these products just super cute? I want them all on my vanity to get into the spooky Halloween spirit all-year round! What have you been loving this month?

August Favorites/Empties

August is winding down to a close and bringing with it the end of summer (or at least the beginning of the end as where I live, the weather insists on staying hot until the end of September on a good, early winter year). Even though I’ll still be struggling consistently with high temperatures and humidity for probably another month, at least on those few glorious days of crisp air, I can bust out a sweater and take a break from envying those already complaining of the chill. Since its the end of the month and also of the season (more or less), I thought I’d do something a little special and do an empties favorite post.

These are the products I’ve been loving enough to finish the whole bottle (or tub, whatever) this month :

Scinic All Day Fine Clay Pore Mask-I originally didn’t LOVE this product, but as I began to use it more and more, I began to like it more and more. It seriously helps refine my pores, but manages to somehow not dry out my dry skin. Don’t get me wrong though: you will feel this stuff drying on your face. Your face will not be able to move without a little crackly pain. But when you look in the mirror and see all the crap that was in your pores on the dry surface of the mask, that accidental smile that felt like it ripped your chin off will be so, so worth it. The texture is whipped by the way, which is really cool  for a clay mask. It spreads easily, but definitely hop in the shower or use a face cloth when you try to get it off. I probably just made it sound terrible here, but it will seriously whip your pores into shape (hahaha!)

Memebox I’m Blush-I’ve hit complete pan on this blush. It was just such a great babydoll shade of pink that looked super natural and just seemed to go with everything. I don’t think they sell this anymore so feel free to give me suggestions down below!

Urban Decay Foundation-this has been one of my favorite foundations ever. The coverage is sheer, but also probably the most buildable and natural looking I have ever come across. Next time at the store, I’ll be forking over the cash for another one…and probably for their equally as awesome concealer. I have absolutely no idea how I lived without these two things before stumbling on them a year ago.

Memebox I’m Cleansing Oil-like a loyal steed, this has taken off my makeup almost every night for the past six months. I had originally wanted the dry skin version of this oil, but settled for the oily skin version when the one I wanted was sold out. It’s very moisturizing despite the name. On sale, this was quite a bang for my buck. A little really went a long way.

CosRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner-this is such an amazing toner, perfect for brightening skin while helping adjust  skin’s pH to an ideal level for applying actives (like the name suggests). It’s also very hydrating at the same time-I’d spritz it on my face all day long if I could!

Missha All Around Safe Block Sun Essence- with an SPF of 45 and a PA+++ rating, this quick-drying, hydrating, and invisible-once-applied sunscreen has got me hooked. It completely disappears into the skin, and doesn’t ball up or flake under makeup. It is also quick drying (but not at all drying to the skin!), doesn’t have that typical sunscreen-y smell, or feel greasy or gross in any way. I would  definitely  recommend this one to anyone new to the sunscreen-can-actually-be-pleasant game, along with the ever-famous Biore Aqua Rich.

I would repurchase any of these products in a heartbeat- in fact, replacements for some may already be on their way!

What are your most recent empties?

 

July Favorites

This month flew by! I can’t believe its almostĀ August can you? Anyway, today I thought I would share my favorite products from this month.

Skin

Innisfree Bija Sheet Mask-this was my go-to mask this month because it was so moisturizing and soothing without any filminess. It really helped calm my skin and tame the last skin purging stragglers.Super gentle. A true basic, classic mask.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Clean-Up Mask-For the price of a box of Biore pore strips, you can have the same power in liquid form to put all over your face. So great at keeping pores clear and blackheads at bay (not to mention taming that wild peach fuzz). Its not exactly gentle, but just avoid sensitive areas like around the eyes and any wanted hair (like your eyebrows).

Makeup


Skinfood’s Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream-this stuff works wonders on my (super) dark undereye area and also on redness and zits. Its soĀ versatileĀ and its wonderful thick, waxy texture helps it stayĀ put all day long. One layer of this and I’m done. Easy to blend out, covers effortlessly. One of the best concealers I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried A LOT).


Too Faced Born This Way Liquid Foundation in Snow-With all my recent redness and adventures in Purge-atory, I was forced to ditch my super sheer foundation habits and invest in something with heavier coverage. I had been needing a paler shade anyway (thanks niacinamide and regular sunscreen use!) so I hauled my weeping, screaming wallet into ULTA and was totallyĀ that girl who had to swatchĀ everything. After swiping on any foundation-like product baring “pale as f***” in its color name, I came across the (adorable) Too Faced section. I went all the way to the start of the row of foundations and picked up the shade”Snow” only to have a perfect match (yaaassss!). So yes, I am pale as snow. I swear, a twenty year old corpse has more color than me. End of story.

Hair:


Lador Hair Care- this brandĀ is an absolute miracle in a bottle and I am seriously not kidding right now. I have ridiculously fine hair so finding conditioners that will allow it to survive a couple blow drying sessions per week and not plaster it to my scalp with weight is an impossible challenge. Between the serum, tea tree conditioner, and the 10 min treatment, my hair looks and feels healthier than it has ever been-this is with me bleaching and coloring my hair for the first time as well! If they ever discontinue their products I may honestly off myself. Life will never be the same without them!

These are the products that I can’t seem to stop using this month. I highly recommend them all šŸ™‚ What have you been digging this month? Anything in particular you just can’t live without?
