The Perfect Fall Fragrance, Spiced Pumpkin Brûlée by Good Earth Beauty

CYMERA_20151020_101826

I will admit it, I’m one of those people who goes crazy for pumpkin this time of year. I love pumpkin and its ones of my favorite things to bake with, I love the smell of fresh baked pumpkin bread its just pure comfort. So when I heard about Good Earth Beauty’s Spiced Pumpkin  Brûlée perfume you can say I was excited. The scent arrived this week and I can’t get enough!

My fragrance came in a roller ball which I think is perfect for a concentrated scent like this. Just a quick roll on my wrists and neck and I am in heaven. The pumpkin cake batter scent is balanced with vanilla caramel and hints of spice. The scent is sweet and spicy and basically Fall in a bottle. The first few days I wore this whenever I entered a room I kept wondering what the great smell was, then I realized it was me. If you love Pumpkin Spice be sure to check this out or any of the other great organic perfumes from Good Earth Beauty.

Love the  Hair Food Strawberry Ginger Root Clarifying Shampoo. First thing I noticed was how amazing this smells I would have never thought to combine strawberry and ginger scents but its wonderful. I just need a little dollop to work through my roots and this shampoo clears any build up from styling or condition products. And I love the it clarifies my hair without drying it out, oh and leaves it smelling amazing.

I love a good hair mask and Clairol Hair Food Moisturizing mask is one of my new favorites. The honey and apricot scent smells good enough to eat and this thick rich texture is really hydrating. In the shower I apply a dollop and work through the middle of my hair to the ends, I leave it on for 3-5 minutes and rinse it out. My hair is left soft, smooth and tangle free and smelling fantastic.

I love how much this moisturizes my hair without weighing it down. A great hair mask perfect for post summer hair TLC and a price you can’t beat.

MY SKIN STORY WITH L’OREAL REVITALIFT™ #ASKSKINEXPERT

This post has been sponsored by L’Oreal via Conde Nast. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

revitalift trio

 

I’ve partnered with L’Oreal and Conde Nast  to share my skin story and try out a customized L’Oreal  Revitalift™ routine for one month and share my results. I just finished my 4 weeks with my customized  L’Oreal  Revitalift™ products and can’t wait to share my results.

I have fair, combination skin that at 38 is starting to show the signs of many years spent out in the sun. My skin tends to be very sensitive and can get splotchy or oily when I am not using good skincare products. And the wrinkles around my eyes have started to deepen a bit more than I like. After summer my skin had a rather dull and just a bit droopy appearance, I was 100% in to try a customized trip and see how it could help.  a

Here are the 3 L’Oreal  Revitalift™ products in my custom routine and how they have worked for me.

 

revitalift day cream

 

A good day cream can be hard to find! I have tried products that just hydrated my skin but did nothing to repair it. Or they help improve my skin but were so heavy my skin broke out and was constantly shiny. All these issues can make me hesitant to start a new day cream.

After a month of use I can say the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18 has been the perfect balance for my skin. When I first opened the jar the cream looked really thick and smelled amazing. I was surprise how lightweight the cream actually is. It felt very refreshing on my skin and absorbed instantly no shine or grease.

Within the first week I started noticing a change in my skin. At the end of the 4 weeks I love how great my skin feels and looks. Not only is my post summer skin now perfectly hydrated its much firmer and places that were a bit dull or saggy have firmed up. its my favorite part of my morning routine now, I love how great it feels on my skin. And I really like that is has SPF for an extra layer of sun protection for my skin.

  • Smoother, firmer skin in 4 weeks.
  • Contains Stimuplex™+ Pro-Retinol®

Experience advanced action against the signs of aging.  Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18, a unique daily moisturizer with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 18 sunscreen protection, delivers smoother, firmer skin in just 4 weeks. Fortified with Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex, Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming works to increase cell turnover, reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and provide 24-hour hydration.

revitalift night cream jar

 

A really great night cream, I am still shocked at the affordable price of Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream. A bit thicker than its daytime counterpart the night cream has the same great scent and light feel. It absorbs right away without any heavy or greasy feeling.

Unlike other night creams though I don’t wake up with a film or greasy feel on my face. My skin looks brighter and firmer in the morning and is still smooth and shine free. I forgot to pack this on an overnight trip and I could really tell the difference the next morning my skin was missing its usual pep and hydration. I make sure to use this on my dace and neck nightly and love the results.

revitalift eye cream

Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream is proof you don’t have to break the bank for a great eye cream. As a single mom to 3 kids keeping up with work, school, soccer and girl scouts sleep is usually what gets cut when I am trying to keep all the balls in the air. The result is some pretty ugly dark circles, and a girl can only be asked so many times if she is sick before she realizes its time to bring in some help.

For the last month I have been using the Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream at night and in the morning. Its a lightweight cream that packs a super  hydrating punch.  It only took 2 weeks of use for me to fall in love. The skin around my eyes was getting firmer and smoother and the dark circles were diminishing.  I have noticed my eyes look more awake now that the skin has firmed up and its even improved the puffiness I get around my eyes due to allergies and lack of sleep. So gentle and soothing and yet so powerful, my medicine cabinet will not be without this little pot of gold.

Bottom line I am really impressed with the  L’Oréal Revitalift™ line. To be honest in the past I was a skincare snob. I thought you had to spend a lot to get a really great product. But after a month of using my custom combo I have seen proof that you don’t have to break the bank to get truly great skincare.
