Some Fave Fall Products/Holiday Gift Ideas + Some Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales!



With Thanksgiving already a few days away, I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the things I love most about the holiday – spending time with my family, the food, the decor, the crisp, Fall weather I love so much, pie…

Ok, in all honesty, I’ve been thinking mostly about pie. Particularly pumpkin and pecan. But since I have to wait to indulge, I’m going to focus on some of the products I have been loving this season (which would also make great gifts for Christmas!), plus some upcoming Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales that you won’t want to miss! ūüôā

Let’s dig in, shall we?

  1. Seabuck Wonders Exfoliating Facial Cleanser – Formulated for daily use, this cleanser uses natural jojoba esters to gently slough off dead skin cells and keep skin smooth! This is my fave morning cleanser to exfoliate and cleanse without drying my skin. $16.97
  2. California Clean Advanced Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer¬†– I love using products that contain hyaluronic acid and this primer has quickly become one of my go to’s. It’s lightweight, absorbs quickly, is hydrating, definitely plumps up the skin, and provides a great base for makeup. $39 (.5 oz) or $105 (2 oz)
  3. California Clean Apple Stem Regenerating Serum – A restorative, anti-aging serum made with Swiss Apple Stem Cells as well as hyaluronic acid to hydrate, nourish, boost collagen production and encourage elastin synthesis. Like the hydrating HA primer, it’s very light, quick absorbing and moisturizes nicely, but leaves skin matte not greasy. $97 (.5 oz) or $160 ( 1 oz)
  4. California Clean Face 30 Makeup Primer & Sunscreen – Another fave from this brand (honestly, I’ve liked everything I’ve tried), is their new makeup primer + sunscreen. Using zinc¬†oxide for sun protection and nourishing oils like sunflower seed and vitamin E, plus green tea leaf extract for anti-aging benefits, this melts into skin without leaving a greasy feel. Apply after all other skincare products and gently massage into skin. I noticed that my makeup applies smoothly and lasts longer when I use this. I also love that it’s portable so I can toss it in my bag to reapply during the day if need be. $22.95
  5. Apoterra Neroli Clarifying Toner with Vitamin C + Green Tea – I’ll be featuring this in an upcoming skincare faves posts, so I won’t say much other than this toner is life (skin) changing! Even though it’s getting colder out, my skin still deals with breakouts and this toner contains ingredients like thyme, neroli & willow bark extract that pack a serious anti-acne punch! I’ve been using this morning and night when my skin is being particularly unruly and just at night when it’s a bit more under control. I can’t say enough good things about it, but will do all my gushing in a future¬†post! $39 (4 oz)
  6. Apoterra Night Clarifying Treatment with Chamomile + Seabuckthorn – All I’m going to say about this right now is that if you have acneic skin, acneic and aging skin or just want your skin to look extra glowy in the morning, this is a MUST have for your routine. Paired with the Neroli Toner, this nutrient-rich serum works like magic to calm down, soothe and clarify reactive skin. It works great as a spot treatment too. $45 (1 oz)
  7. Ilike Hyaluronic Time Erase Complex Moisturizer – There’s a definite theme here this season with my skincare choices, and that is hyaluronic acid is present in pretty much everything I am using. I’ve been using a few products from this brand (more to come later) and though I am loving everything, this moisturizer has been my go-to once the weather changed. The unique blend of herbs, plant¬†oils, and hyaluronic acid helps to replenish the skins moisture barrier, all the while plumping and smoothing skin for a healthier looking complexion. The texture is quite rich, yet it feels light and absorbs to a matte-like finish, while still doing a great job of adding moisture to the skin. A little goes a very long way! $94
  8. Orgaid Sheet Masks -I’m new to the sheet mask game, but as someone who just doesn’t like taking too much time getting ready in the mornings, these masks are true time savers. Made with the newest generation of sheet mask fabric called “Ecoderma”, these allow the mask serum to penetrate more deeply into the skin, and because all of the ingredients are clean, there’s no need to worry about your skin absorbing anything toxic. Right now, I am loving the¬†“Greek Yogurt Nourishing” mask, which contains, besides organic greek yogurt, pro-vitamin B5 & allantoin to tone and tighten skin, beta glucan and vegetable proteins to condition and organic botanicals to soothe skin. $42 for a 6 pack
  9. Dao Labs Digestive Harmony – From October to January (or in my case February because of birthdays), I tend to eat a little less healthy than the rest of the year due to holidays. While my stomach is generally pretty strong, there are times when it gets quite upset at me for putting certain things in it. Having this digestive drink on hand has been a true life (tummy) saver to say the least! Using the wisdom and practices of traditional Chinese medicine, they’ve combined 8 herbs popular for digestion – including hawthorn berries (shan zha), pinella stem (ban xia), massa fermentata (shen qu) & sprouted barley fruit (mai ya). The flavor of this is apple chai and it is deeee-lish! I tried this for the first time after eating a bit too much cheese and my stomach was in turmoil. Minutes after drinking this, my stomach was calm and feeling great. I will absolutely be purchasing more of this and most likely buying some as gifts for my family. Highly recommend! $28.20
  10. Lovebug Probiotics Colds Suck – This is hands down my favorite probiotic brand and I love that they have one especially for cold season. This contains immunity boosters vitamin C, echinacea, and zinc, along with 4 carefully selected probiotic strains that are 15x more effective than other supplements. Needless to say, I’ve managed to kick cold season’s butt while taking this! See prices here
  11. Juice Organics Repairing Collection – This is probably my favorite affordable natural haircare brand,¬†and though I love their “Color Protecting Collection” (see review here), this collection is perfect for keeping my hair hydrated and nourished during the colder, drier Fall season. Made with shine enhancing coconut and strengthening soy proteins as well as aloe juice and cucumber to provide moisture without greasiness and jojoba and argan oils to condition and repair, my hair has never been so soft and manageable. $12 each or $20 for bundle
  12. Cell-U-Logic¬†3 Piece Set – This 3 piece collection contains a revitalizing body scrub, green coffee slimming gel and an anti-aging body moisturizer. All three contain an array of active ingredients such as green coffee, argan oil, guarana, cocoa and shea butters, as well as other botanical oils, extracts and vitamins and minerals that all work together to tone, smooth and revitalize skin. Cell-U-Logic uses a revolutionary technology of enhanced cellular science – products are formulated with an advanced liposome delivery system to allow ingredients to penetrate deep into the dermis for maximum efficacy. I’ve mentioned before that I’m not big on using body care products (mostly because I’m too lazy in the mornings), but this is one instance where I actually enjoy using a regimen on my body. My skin is also definitely more toned and looking firmer, so score! I recommend getting the 3 piece collection for best results (and to save major $$). $28.85
  13. Moroccan Magic Lip Balm – Of course, I have to include a lip balm in my list of faves! Infused with organic oils like argan, coconut, and sunflower, as well as essential oils like rose, peppermint, lemon and thyme, these lip balms will keep lips soft, smooth and hydrated during the coldest of days. They also work really well under lipstick to help it apply more smoothly. $12 for 3 pk (except rose which is $14)
  14. Inika Organic Liquid Foundation with Hyaluronic Acid – I had a bit of a rocky start with this foundation, but after using the right brush to apply it (this is my HG), I fell head over heels in love! The perfect amount of coverage, moisture and wear is what you get with this, it’s just fan-freaking-tastic! I love that it contains some of my fave skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, kakadu plum, argan oil, green tea and tamanu oil to name a few. My skin actually looks better the more I wear this! For even extra skin improving benefits, their primer is a must! $49 You can also get their Trial Pack, which includes 2 shades of liquid and mineral foundations + their primer for $7.95
  15. Jane Iredale Puremoist Lipstick in Gwen – As much as I love nudes, sometimes I want a bold, red lip and this one by Jane Iredale is my current fave. This true apple-red is the perfect color for Fall and contains nourishing oils like avocado and moringa as well as superfruit extracts to ensure lips stay petal soft all day/night long! I wore this at a wedding earlier this season and it truly did last the entire day (I only touched up once, after eating). $25
  16. Chocolate Sun Sunless Tanning Collection – If you are looking for the perfect non-toxic sunless tanning products that provide natural color, smells like cake batter (sooooo hard to resist not to eat!) and nurtures your skin with organic ingredients, look no further! I’ve dabbled with pretty much this whole line and I’m obsessed with everything! I wish I could say what my favorite product is, but since I can’t, I am including the whole line as my favorite! Prices range from $5-$42
