5 Things My Nose Loves Right Now

Just because it’s October doesn’t mean I’m getting all pumpkin-y on you … yet. Still have quite a few more weeks before I dive into that.

From L to R clockwise:

VIKTOR & ROLF Flowerbomb Cream ($90/6.7oz @ – layer, layer, layer! It helps your scent last longer and anything with the word Flowerbomb on it gets my immediate attention. And the glass jar? Nice!  

MARK ‘Snowdrop Flower’ Hand It Over Super Moisturize Hand Cream ($4/1.5oz @ – I’m becoming a fan of mark’s body products! This seasonal one is getting me in the mood for the upcoming season with its wintry mix of florals, chilled fruit and warmth of amber. Big recommendation!

PHILOSOPHY Amazing Grace Satin-Finish Body Oil Mist ($26/5.8oz @ – if you’re a fan of their Amazing Grace scents, pick up this body oil mist version for quick skin hydration just out of the shower while it’s still warm in the room.

NATURALLY BARE 'Noir' Body Balm ($45/6oz @ – just wow! This balm contains major emollients like shea and capucau butters as well as vitamin E, aloe and argan and borage oils. So not only is the formula thick the scent is too. So much so that you can use this as your perfume. Think strong base notes like vanilla and sandalwood.

ESSENCE OF BEAUTY ‘Secret Woods’ Body Mist ($6.99/8oz, $2.99/2oz @ or CVS stores nationwide) – on days when you feel like taking a break from your signature scent, this floriental is a nice alternative and it won’t break the bank.

Scrub and Go With Philosophy

Philowash2Do your daily face exfoliation in the shower with the newest item in PHILOSOPHY’s microdelivery peel family. When you combine the Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash and the Microdelivery Peel Exfoliating Cloths, you can shower while you deep clean your face. The Clothes are kind of a souped up delivery system for delivering the Wash. To use, wet the cloth and pour a small amount on it and work it into a slightly damp face and massage for 30-60 seconds. PhiloclothesThis is not for the faint of heart as far as exfoliating goes. This is a super power scrub with ingredients like borage seed oil to help lock in moisture, and a form of vitamin E to help protect against environmental stress. It also contains Panthenol to soothe and act as a humectants and diatomaceous earth (finely grained powder) to naturally exfoliate the skin. You can also use the cloths with their Purity Made Simple on the days you don’t want to have the full exfoliation. Perfectly polished with Philosophy. Wash: $25/8oz,Cloths - $15/20 cloths @ ~Lisa
