With Thanksgiving upon us, gobble up these 5 pumpkin products and be thankful!
Healthy Sexy Hair Pumpkin Puree Treatment Masque from Amazon.com - This scent-sational treat for your tresses is packed with moisturizing pumpkin fatty acids, wheat, soy proteins, aloe, Vitamins A, C and E, and natural fruit acids. The Beauty Bug tends to always leave a product on a bit longer than instructed, so She left the masque on for about 15-20 minutes, while just relaxing and enjoying the scent. After washing it out, Her hair was incredibly soft, easier to manage, and smelled like She had just slaved over the oven for hours making a pumpkin pie.
Philosophy Pumpkin Pie Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath – What’s a holiday without Philosophy? There’s not much that hasn’t already been said about Philosophy’s 3-in-1′s – they are a staple in every product junkies shower. The Pumpkin Pie scent is sweet, scrumptious, rich and festive. Also, check out Pumpkin Spice Muffin.
Bath and Body Works Antibacterial Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Foaming Hand Soap -A kitchen isn’t a kitchen without B&BW hand soaps. The Beauty Bug loves this scent so much that She purchased several bottles last fall to last Her through the year. It’s light (both in scent and texture), high-foaming, and leaves hands feeling soft and smelling great. Pick one up as a hostess gift, and two up for yourself!
Lamas Beauty Pumpkin Spice Polish 3-in-1 Instant Facial – This product was the sleeper hit of the bunch for The Beauty Bug. This sweet smelling organic wonder does everything but bake you a pumpkin pie. It cleanses, exfoliates and polishes to reveal smoother, more refined and even skin. Ingredients include pumpkin enzymes and oil, apricot grains, coconut oil, Aloe Vera, soy protein, and Vitamin E. Great in texture (not too grainy, stripping or abrasive, and usable for sensitive skinned ladies) and slightly foaming, skin is left refreshed and soft. Find it at Whole Foods or other health and natural food stores.
PCA SKIN Nutrient Toner - Infused with pumpkin wine, this product is for real pumpkin lovers and smells absolutely wonderful. The Beauty Bug applies this just before She goes to bed, and the soothing scent lingers for a bit (luckily The Beauty Bug husband likes the scent of pumpkin too). This product has been a welcome addition to her skincare routine because it leaves Her feeling refreshed, and smelling like a spicy pumkpin treat! It contains a combination of vitamins, enzymes and amino acids which help to refine pores, remove superficial dead skin cells and dirt, and provide added nutrients.
