It’s spooky szn, which means it’s time for witchy ways and pumpkin everrrythang! I may not have a huge list of pumpkin skin care products, but I have three that I am using and loving! Pumpkin is supposed to increase cell turnover and have a brightening effect by removing the dead skin cells and adds a boost of vitamin C. The added moisture is just what is needed during this weather change!
Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack, $20
“Pumpkin Sleeping Pack is an overnight enzyme-based treatment mask formulated with pumpkin extracts and natural enzymes to lightly exfoliate achieving supple, moisturized, and glowing skin the next morning.”
I have been using this for about 5 or 6 years now. I used to have a multi-step night time skincare routine. I’m too tired for that. This is easy. Slather it onto your clean face (Feel free to use serums if you want). Use it as if it’s a moisturizer and sleep with it on. You should feel it still on your skin as you wash it off the next day.
You can buy this at Target or Amazon.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Overnight Mask, $7
“…with pumpkin fruit extract, papaya enzymes and plant-derived squalane.”
Used just the same as the previous mask. But this one has the pumpkin spice smell that shoots the senses into cozy autumn territory. For $7, I’d go back to Trader Joes and grab a few more. They had so many stocked that I shouldn’t worry if they had run out. (Please don’t run out!)
This is of course only at Trader Joe’s stores.
Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers Pumpkin Seed Extract Primer Serum, $6
“This serum is enriched with a luxurious blend of skin-loving ingredients like Pumpkin Extract and Glycerin to help keep skin moisturized, and brightening and refreshing Rose Water.”
Use this serum before moisturizer. I like this so much that I bought a backup to use for the remainder of the year. I was at CVS yesterday and saw one more on the shelf. I wanted to get it, but another customer was standing in front of the display and I didn’t want to be rude and reach in front of her. And of course I forgot to get it later! The price is right and worth picking up more than one if you can.
It has tiny sparkles, but it honestly doesn’t show through once you get your foundation and concealer on.
You can purchase this at any drugstore where Wet N Wild is sold or at Ulta. It will be on the display with the Halloween makeup.
