Cyber Monday Beauty Deals and Steals

Hi Lovelies!
I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend filled with friends, family, and lots of delicious food.  Now, it's Monday and we are celebrating one of my favorite shopping days: Cyber Monday!!  Black Friday is great and all, but after the enormous food baby I usually wake up with, I'm in no shape to deal with hordes of shoppers and long lines.  Enter Cyber Monday, with its just-as-good deals without requiring me to get out of my PJs.  Bless.

Here are some of my favorite beauty deals and steals:

Thanksgiving Inspired Skin Care - Pumpkin Edition

This season, take your skin care cues from your dinner table!  These products feature the Thanksgiving staple, pumpkin, to ensure your skin looks its best this season.

Pumpkin is an excellent source of Vitamins C and A to protect, heal and stimulate collagen production, and Zinc Oxide, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory and aids in skin repair.  Pumpkin is also packed with enzymes that naturally dissolve dull, dead skin for a glowing complexion.

This creamy cleanser contains pumpkin and honey enzymes, to gently exfoliate and hydrate while cleansing.  It completely dissolves dirt, oil and makeup, leaving skin soft and smooth.  Perfect for all skin types!

This scrub combines gentle jojoba beads with pumpkin and fruit enzymes for both physical and chemical exfoliation.  It also contains powerful anti-inflammatories to ensure your skin never gets irritated.  Use 2 to 3 times a week for a glowing complexion!

This mask from my beloved Sanitas line combines pumpkin enzymes with hydrating hyaluronic acid and squalane to gently exfoliate while hydrating.  Right after using this mask, you'll see smooth, soft skin with a decrease in fine lines and discoloration.  

DIY: Pumpkin Mask
Or... you can create your very own mask at home!  Combine the following ingredients, apply to face and rinse off after 10 minutes.
3 tsp. pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. whipping cream

This intense exfoliator will ensure your body is just a smooth as your now-glowing face!  With natural pumpkin, papaya, and lactic enzymes to exfoliate, plus caffeine to tone and smooth any dimples, this scrub has everything you need to keep body skin smooth and hydrated this winter.

I just love the scent of pumpkin products!  They are so soothing and comforting.  What are your favorite holiday scents or products?
