Beauty editors and makeup mavens alike know that fall is when all the new beauty products come out to play. Here are some of my fall favorites for 2017…
nail polish: Fall is the perfect time for nudes and muted pinks. I’ve been rocking this pale pink color on my nails since October and have received so many compliments on it! I’ve been a long-time fan of NCLA, who makes “5 Free” luxury nail lacquer, meaning they are not only 100% free of DBP, toulene, and formaldehyde, but also of camphor and animal testing.
shadow palette: Reminiscent of the sophisticated beiges and subdued lilacs of Degas’ ballerinas, the shades in this versatile Sweet Ballet palette can create both soft, everyday eyes or a show-stopping evening look. This palette can flatter almost any skin tone and eye color, and depending on the balance of the colors used. The sleek palette case includes a convenient application mirror and applicator brush and sponge, making on-the-go touch-ups fast and fumble-free.
face serum: Melatonin-riched, vitamin packed Cellular Recovery Serum is the absolute best and most enriched serum to use in the fall – for any type of skin! The ingredients in Genetix Cellular Recovery Serum enhance communication between your skin cells. Nutrient-dense organic rosehip, magnesium and CoQ10 can penetrate the tough outer layer of your sebum and once there, initiate your skin’s repair process, revealing a vibrant, smoother skin texture. With daily application this super serum moisturizes, improves clarity + contributes to a more beautiful, balanced and youthful complexion.
moisturizer: I absolutely have to recommend the Rare Indigo Soothing Balm from Mahalo for the fall season! This Hawaiian beauty balm is supercharged with clinically-tested rare extract of the indigo plant and potent anti-inflammatory, chamazulene-rich actives, making this skin-renewing balm an opulent skin treat. Bursting with collagen-fostering vitamin C ester and replenishing essential fatty-acids to lower oxidation damage in stressed tissue, allowing the skin to be hydrated, nourished and youthful.
toner: This Aloe toner by Odacite screams USE ME WHEN THE WEATHER CHANGES! You’ll love it! Watch this toner reduce puffiness and boost renewal of firming tissues. Sea Fennel from the pristine rocky North Atlantic coastal cliffs re-energizes the skin and shrinks pores. Fresh Aloe Vera Juice heals and hydrates. Organic Immortelle essential oil stimulates healthy cell growth and revitalizes damaged tissue.
mask: I don’t know what i love more about this face mask… the fact that it’s called The Mermaid Mask or the fact that it just plain WORKS. This powerhouse mask works deep within the layers of skin to eliminate impurities, leaving it luminous and supple. Great for all skin types, but especially oily and combination skin, the mask is rich in antioxidants and minerals that support the skin’s natural detoxing processes while also nourishing it.
body scrub: I love love LOVE a good body scrub, and fall is the perfect time to slough off that old skin for a better, smoother complexion on your face AND body! This simple yet effective Earth Tu Face Dead Sea Salt Scrub is a fall fave! Exfoliates, detoxifies and hydrates the body. Pure Sea Salt stimulates circulation of the lymphatic system, a key element to combat cellulite. Organic Safflower and Jojoba Oils absorb into the skin, leaving it smooth and hydrated. Bergamot, Lemon and Basil invigorate the immune system and uplift mood.
mommy & baby: Perfect for keeping both mommy and baby’s skin hydrated, Zoe’s Belly butter helps to relieve itching and is a rich conditioner for stretching skin during pregnancy. Shea butter, along with a power-packed blend of organic oils, extracts and essential oils work to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
fragrance: If you want to make an entrance, the humid, velvety scent of live gardenias will do it. The perfume itself is – a green, fresh, luxurious gardenia scent. Earthy and floral. Your scent will haunt the room in the best possible way!
box: There are a lot of green beauty boxes out there and they’re not all created equal! The Detox Box is a monthly box that allows us to share with you our tried-and-true favorites and game-changing discoveries. Each month you’ll receive products that are universal and exceptional—you know, the “holy grails”. Products that have people complimenting your skin, and asking what you’re doing. They have strict ingredient standards, high expectations for performance, and a need to connect with the passion behind each brand. The products that make it are proven to be above and beyond. Cannot recommend this box enough! I can’t wait for my December box to show up! Here’s the one I enjoyed around this time last year:
