October has been a very busy month for me. So many shoots. Commercial and photo. This week, I was in Grand Rapids for some photo shoots. The bridal shoot on Monday was the biggest one I’ve ever done! Still don’t know how it’s November. This past month flew by, probably because I was so busy. I actually have a lot of October favourites! More than I’ve had in awhile! I hope you like them.
Beautycounter Counter + Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm
Beautycounter’s Cleansing Balm has been in my monthly favourites before but a few months ago Beautycounter redid the formula. It is now part of their Counter + range. This new formula has lotus extract that leaves a healthy glow to your skin.
Trader Joe’s Grapefruit & Ginger Sugar Scrub
Normally, I make my own sugar scrub but when I saw this at Trader Joe’s I wanted to get it. It smells amazing and leaves my skin super smooth. It has a mix of sweet almond, jojoba and sunflower seed oils to help soften.
Ursa Major Stellar Shave Cream
Ursa Major is a clean beauty brand that has been on my radar for awhile now, I want to try their deodorant but I want to finish my Native first. This shave cream is so creamy and leaves my skin so hydrated and super soft without any toxic chemicals.
Beautycounter Starlight Eyeshadow
This limited edition eyeshadow palette is part of Beautycounter’s holiday collection. As soon as I saw it, I had heart eyes. It’s absolutely gorgeous and the colours are perfect for the holidays. I’ve been playing around with it and love creating different looks.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Biocellulose Sheet Mask
I’m a huge fan of sheet mask and when I saw pumpkin spice, I wanted to try it. The biocellulose is made from fermented coconut fiber which makes it completely compostable. This mask is designed to soothe and moisture the skin while also smelling like pumpkin!
Orphan Black: The Next Chapter
I love Orphan Black and it’s been awhile since the show ended. The story now continues with audio books narrated by Tatiana Maslany. It’s so nice to hear her go back into her characters and even characters she doesn’t even play, she does their voices so well. As I’m listening, I can just imagine these characters doing all these things. There’s a total of 11 episodes with episodes released weekly. So far only 6 are out.
Alaffia Shea Pomegranate Body Wash and Lotion
I discovered this brand when I was searching for a clean body lotion. This was one of the few that didn’t have any added fragrance which is what I was looking for. Not only is their shea is ethically sourced in West Africa but they provide maternal care, education, eye glasses, and sustainability to West Africa. Personally I love when brands give back and I am so happy to support.
Beautycounter Pout Perfecter Lip Care Set
This is set is part of the holiday collection. It comes with a lip polish, better balm, and a crystal lip gloss. The lip polish is made with organic sugar, conditioning oils and a hint of peppermint. I do have to be very careful not to ingest the sugar because of my candida, but I love it. The better balm has murumuru oil and a hint of vanilla. Normally I don’t like lip gloss because it’s sticky, but I don’t think it’s sticky at all. It’s also super moisturizing.
