~October Favorites~

Another month has flown by and it's time for October favorites.  Around this time of year, I feel like where I live, the desert. My hair dries out, my skin, and so when I buy products in the fall they are going to be mostly moisturizing products.

1. Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Nourishing Anti-dandruff Shampoo Volumizing Root Boost....whew, that's a long name.  I love this shampoo.  It cleanses my hair without stripping the moisture from it. I wash my hair every other day, so aside from my Lush Big, I use this about 75% of the time, or I'll combine the two.

2. My second favorite product of the month is, old faithful: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion.  I love Palmers, it's very moisturizing and not the least bit greasy.  Not too many people are fond of the smell, but I don't mind it.  As long as it does the job and people aren't avoiding me it doesn't bother me.  It works really well if your pregnant, and want to avoid stretch marks.  I know those evil little things are totally avoidable, but using this on your body everyday more than 2x a day will help a lot, and in places where stretch marks are prone to appear: Breasts, back of arms, stomach, thighs, buttocks, back, calves.  Even if you start to itch, don't scratch just rub some lotion on it.

3. Benefit Skin Care.  I received a sample of Benefit's Foamingly Facial Wash. I tried it, liked the smell and the way it cleansed my skin, so I thought I'd give the full size bottle a try. (Warning: It did burn my eyes a bit). Well I didn't stop there, so I also bought the Refined Facial Polish and the Moisture Prep Toning Lotion.  So far I've been loving all three.

The next product I've been loving are the Loreal Lip Butters, more specifically in the colors Pink truffle and Berry Smoothie.  If you haven't tried these before I recommend that you do.  They are very moisturizing, never tacky and come in beautiful colors.

The candle of the month has to be Bath and Body Works Marshmallow Fireside.  I'm in love with this scent.  I bought a couple of full sized candles for my home and a few minis for my office a few weeks ago.  Everyone tells me how good I smell. I just smile and let them believe it's me. I can't be too modest, I'm not that great!jk BBW is having their 2/$20 sale on 3 wick candles...get them while they're hot and still available.  Just made an online purchase last night, and will be going to my local BBW after work today to get some more. Don't judge. Oh Leaves came in at a close 2nd.

Lastly, scent of the month.  Blackberry and Bay Cologne.  It's fruity, yet warm like a musk. It's a very inviting scent.  I talked about this in a blog post a few weeks back. Check it out if you're interested, but I like-y this scent.

Those are my October Favorites, hope you enjoyed.  Let me know what your favorites are.

Nice stuff - I love the coco butter lotion. I get such dry skin in the winter time, especially after a long, hot bubble bath which I love to indulge in. I try to do a dry brush of my skin before I get into the tub, and use a great moisturizing cream after I get out. That sounds like the perfect product to have beautiful skin. Thanks!
