Fall Favorites That You Have To Try


Wow, did fall arrive today or what? It's a new season and so many new beauty products to try and to love! We've sorted through quite a few to find our favorites and hopefully yours! 




evolis Professional Style & Treat Dry Shampoo ($30) Created with 100% botanical actives to both style your hair and treat your scalp. This shampoo instantly absorbs excess oil while delivering their patented blend of FGF5 inhibitors. By blocking FGF5, the negative effects can be reversed, resulting in the restoration of hair density, promotion of new growth and the preservation of existing hair strands.  Ideal for all hair types, Style +Treat Dry Shampoo revives your hair style while lifting your roots for incredible volume and fullness.



Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum ($88) Vitamin C isn't new, but it definitely is having a strong resurgence in popularity. The Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum is an oil and fragrance-free serum that packs a whopping 20 percent concentration of vitamin C that deliver both instant and long-term results. A 10 percent concentration of AHAs joins the mix -- all working together to leave your skin firmer, smoother, and noticeably more glowy.



Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream ($30) This best-selling cream is getting a revamp, now reformulated to be entirely paraben-free. But don't worry, you won't be able to tell that your beloved moisturizer has changed -- it took Kiehl's scientists five years and more than 114 different versions to come up with this final formula that works!



Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation ($48 - available in 30 shades) A pearl extract in this medium-to-full coverage base helps reflect light to give your skin an instant glow, regardless of whether you're standing in front of a ring light or sitting under yellow-y office bulbs. The lightweight, moisturizing formula promises to stay put for up to 15 hours, keeping your skin looking flawless and feeling hydrated.



First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Barriair Cream ($30) As a general rule, creams promising to restore and calm your skin are usually, well, super thick and heavy. Not this newbie, which is packed with hard-working, skin-coddling ingredients, but it has an airy, whipped texture that feels more like a gel moisturizer than a heavy-hitting hydrator. There's hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin, colloidal oatmeal to soothe it, and ceramides and linoleic acid to help strengthen the skin barrier.




Kopari Coconut Detox Mask ($38) We think of this mask as a juice cleanse for our skin! Bentonite and kaolin clays go to town pulling impurities out of your pores, while coconut oil hydrates, and probiotics help keep the top layer of skin feeling balanced and looking fresh.




Giorgio Armani Beauty Power Fabric Foundation Balm ($64) A blend of waxes and oils gives this foundation formula its initial balm-like consistency, which, when smoothed over skin, transforms into a cream, and later, a powder. Made with 15 percent pigments, it packs a hefty punch of complete coverage and has a perfectly matte finish despite its creamy consistency.




Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer ($28 available in 22 shades) The latest addition to the brand's best-selling Ultra HD line, this cover-up doesn't need to be set with powder, thanks to the unique amino-acid coated pigments that immediately conform to your skin, staying put for up to 12 hours without caking or creasing.



Maybelline New York Snapscara ($6) Maybelline knows a thing or two about mascara, and their newest Snapscara formula is one of their best yet. The thin, flexible pigment tints your lashes and leaves them looking super glossy, but also adds a little thickness and lots of length.



Dior Lip Glow To The Max ($34) Dior Lip Glow To The Max is the same beloved Lip Glow, now with a yummy new look and a touch more pigment. In this new formula, the sheer, tinted balm is spiked with pigment — those are the candy-colored swirls you see in the bullet — to both hydrate your lips and leave them with a bit more of a tint than the original formula does. Take your pick from seven different shades, five with a dewy finish and two that leave behind a holographic sheen.



Tenoverten Rose Polish Remover ($14) What you won't find in this polish remover: acetone, parabens, or any unpleasant odors. What you will find: vitamin E, horsetail leaf extract, and aloe to help hydrate and strengthen your nails. Green beauty lovers should add this to their product stash, stat.

Skincare For Your Legs Winter Edition



Maybe, the best place to start with winter skin care is to look at why we experience skin issues. Our skin changes for multiple reasons. Stress, hormones, age, and yes, even the weather all contribute to changes in tone and texture. As for our legs, being protected by clothing during the cooler months actually works as a moisture thief. Generally fabric is against the skin on our legs, so not only is the fabric robbing moisture from our skin it’s also irritating the skin by constantly rubbing against it. While we aren’t exactly able to bare our legs throughout the cooler months, there are various ways to keep your legs looking summer sexy throughout autumn and winter.





Exfoliate. TME readers know that we emphasize not over-exfoliating the skin on your face, but you may be neglecting the rest of your body -- specifically your legs. You need to remove dead skin cells, which are most likely more prevalent during the cooler months. We recommend that you exfoliate your legs every other time that you bath or shower. Dry “brush” with a pair of inexpensive spa gloves and follow up with a fab body scrub. Our current fave is Golden Door Bamboo Body Scrub ($58).






Hair Removal. More women than you think opt not to go for permanent hair removal. Yep. Shaving is still at the forefront of hair removal and while we never really understood the whole idea of not shaving our legs regularly, we have found out over the years that a lot of us don’t shave our legs during the winter and this actually contributes to lackluster legs. When you shave, it’s super important to use a good shave cream and razor. Our current faves are Dr. Bronner's Organic Shaving Soap ($8.99) and Gillette Venus Swirl ($8.99).





Moisturize. You absolutely need to pay special attention to moisturizing your skin, from head-to-toe, during the cooler months and our legs are no exception. For conditioned, supple and sexy winter legs you need to moisturize them everyday. Finding a moisturizer that really locks it in can be a little challenging, so it’s worth it to do your research! Our current fave is Kiehl's Creme de Corps Body Cream ($75) and also a super budget-friendly choose that we found by complete accident ... Healthy Accents Essential Skin Lotion that will run you about $4 a bottle and works pretty well.
