It's November, so you know what that means... October Favorites! I have done monthly favorites in the past (they are my favorite to read and write), but this month I cannot say enough good things about the products that stole my heart this month. These are products that, I honestly, see myself using forever! So, let's get started!
1.) The Rusk W8less Leave-in Treatment is now a vital part of my hair routine. This product offers 12 benefits in just a few sprays to my damp hair. It smooths, protects, strengthens, moisturizes, adds shine, protects hair from heat damage, etc. This stuff does it all and more without your hair feeling weighed down or greasy. It is amazing! I discovered this product when I received a sample size at a fashion show during NYFW. I recently used up the sample size that lasted me two months! I picked up the full size at Ulta the other day where they had a great deal going on, two Rusk items for $20. I grabbed the leave-in treatment and a huge can of hairspray. I will let you know what I think of the hairspray! If you want to try out this awesome product you can get it for a steal at Amazon or Beauty-Mart.
2.) My second favorite for October is my gorgeous Michael Kors watch. I picked this up in September and have worn it everyday since. I snagged it for an amazing deal at Macys. Look out for coupons that offer a discount on the whole store so you can use it on designer watches. Most coupons do not include some designers, but with the holidays coming up, I bet there will be a few great discounts floating around.
3.) I have used quite a few dry shampoos, I even did a comparison post a while back, but I have finally settled on a go-to brand. The Batiste original formula is fabulous. It blends into my dark hair with ease, and it is by far the best dry shampo I have ever used.
4.) Up until mid-October, I was using the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam. I loved it, I thought it worked well, and I was convinced I would use it for a very long time. Well, I ran out of it during October and really did not want to dish out 20 dollars on face wash. Plus, with living in the city, I'm trying to keep my spending down until I get a good job. So, I ventured into Duane Reade and decided to try out the Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. This product is amazing!!! My skin has never been better since I started using this. It clears my skin, evens the tone, and leaves it so soft. It is less than half the price of Clinique and does four times more! I am sold. I knew Aveeno had great products, but there cleansing foam is hands down the best!
5.) I was looking to find a great liquid liner for awhile, but I was nervous because previous liquid liners I had purchased were too runny and would go in my eye and irritant it severely. I went to Sephora one day and just decided to try out the Sephora collection. It was pretty inexpensive and went on smoothly and easily when I tested it on my hand. The next day I tested it out and I was sold. It was not runny like other liners I had tried, it was so simple to apply, and once it dried it did not smudge. It also stayed on the entire day! I was very impressed by the quality of the Sephora collection. I want to try a few other items from their line and will definitely pick up another liner when my current one runs out.
6.) The last item of my October Favorites is the Zara 666 5th Ave perfume. Not only does Zara offer trendy and well made clothes, they have an incredible perfume collection for a great price. I couldn't choose between the 666 5th Ave scent or the Cherry one, so I picked up both in the sample size for around ten dollars! The 666 5th Ave has floral scents as well as light wood scent. The description reads "Floral-fruity-woody. Crisp apple, passion fruit and watermelon." It might sound strange, but I love it and always get compliments on it. I am almost out of the sample size and cannot wait to pick up the full size. It comes in a chic bottle, and, did I mention it only costs 15 dollars! Most perfume will cost quintuple that price. This perfume smells heavenly and will not break the bank.
What were your favorites for the month of October? Have you tried any of the products I mentioned?
