Pumpkin at-home facial (as seen in Good Housekeeping)

DIY at-home pumpkin mask

Featured in this month’s issue of Good Housekeeping magazine (October 2011, on-stands now – see below!). Created by beauty guru and author of Bonding Over Beauty Erika Katz (www.bondingoverbeauty.com), this mask is full of exfoliating enzymes that brighten the skin so it won’t look too “scary” this fall season.

 

Pumpkin Face Mask
2 tsp canned pureed pumpkin
1/2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp heavy whipping cream
Mix all ingredients and apply to face. Leave on for 10 min and rinse

Why: Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which is very healing to the skin and is essential to maintain and repair skin tissue. It also helps reduce lines and wrinkles.
Honey is a humectant. The cream moisturizes and helps flaky skin.

Review: Keratin Complex Lock Launder Strengthening Dry Shampoo

Spray your way to clean, healthy hair with Keratin Complex Lock Launder Strengthening Dry Shampoo. This innovative mist immediately eliminates excess oil and residue on contact for refreshing tresses anytime. Perfect for travel, after work touch ups, or post-gym hair in need of a pick me up, this instant water-free fix utilizes a keratin-infused formula to strengthen strands without stripping essential moisture. Another bonus: the translucent solution provides a volume boost and luxurious texture that extends the time between shampoos or the life of your blow out.

LOCK LAUNDER STRENGTHENING DRY SHAMPOO contains a special blend of oil absorbing powders to extend the life of your blowout—no water needed. It eliminates residue and excess oil while refreshing hair and scalp. Keratin protein strengthens and restores elasticity to hair, leaving it stronger and full of volume. No white, powdery residue—just clean, fresh and healthy hair.

I love this product. I have never tried a dry-shampoo before, this was my first experience, and I loved it! I sprayed it on like I would hairspray, and it made my hair look like it had just been washed! Awesome product!

Did you get any of the Missoni for Target Collection?

Did you get your hands on any of the hot Missoni collection? I was in Target at 8:30am and they had already sold out of most items except for a few glasses and scarves. I saw  people with carts piled high with Missoni that I am guessing they are planning to resell.

Bummed the items I wanted were already all gone and the Target website has been down all morning due to heavy traffic. I am sure Target Execs are doing the happy dance this will be an early Black Friday for sales, just hoping the release more items for the rest of us!

 

Did you get anything?  Does it frustrate you when all the items are sold out early to people buying them strictly to resell? Come join the discussion
