Fall Beauty Favourites
Before I get too carried away with Christmas content, it's time to stop and take a moment to reflect on my fall favourites. With the holiday season finally here, I almost forget to say goodbye to autumn! But it wouldn't be a change of season without a classic round-up of seasonal favourites so here we go...
I heard about this product from a few beauty YouTubers and I knew right away I had to try it. This product is great if you're prone to breakouts as it both heals and prevents. I definitely noticed that it helped heal my blemishes faster without drying out my skin. It works both on its own and under makeup to protect the skin from the pore-clogging effects of foundation. The Effaclar Duo also comes in a tinted version but with only two shades on offer, I couldn't find a good match for my fair complexion.
This came in a beauty box subscription and I was skeptical at first since I usually prefer brushes over beauty blenders. However, when I realized that this product is silicone and not a sponge, I was instantly hooked. The silicone makes it super easy to wash so I feel much better about using it on my skin than either a brush or a sponge with can absorb and hold onto dirt and bacteria. It takes a bit of practice to use and isn't quite as straightforward as a traditional brush or beauty blender, but the cleanliness factor makes it totally worth it for me.
I wrote a whole review in my last blog post about the Aveeno at-home facial line so I won't reiterate too much here. Suffice to say that this product gives me a quick and easy way to pamper my skin while I'm in the shower, without adding an extra step to my beauty routine.
Autumn always means the return of cold-weather nail colours and for me that means a classic red. I was surprised to go through my stash this September and find that I didn't have the shade I was looking for! Unable to remember what it was called, I took a guess and opted for "Revlon Red". I have to say I think I got lucky because this is the perfect classic red that's not too orange and not too blue. I've been wearing this all season and I plan on letting it carry me through the holidays as well.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your beauty favourites this season?
