Yum, it's fall! From pumpkin to cranberries to cinnamon, apples, and more, fall is pretty much our fave time of year, in terms of food. Everything is warm, cozy, spicy and rich - who wouldn't love it? Unfortunately, too many slices of apple-cranberry pie and too many pumpkin spice lattes can do a number on your waistline... What's a fall-flavor-lovin' gal to do? Find ways to incorporate fall flavors into her beauty routine, of course! Our pals at Walgreens helped us find some inexpensive, calorie-free ways to enjoy our favorite parts of the season into our daily lives.
Starting in the shower, we're loving lathering our locks with Desert Essence Organics Green Apple & Ginger Conditioner ($8). Not only is it a steal, it's 100% vegan and wheat- and gluten-free, with no parabens or other scary chemical ingredients. (And, hi, it smells great and leaves our tresses super soft!) We follow things up with reviving Burt's Bees Extra Energizing Citrus & Ginger Root Body Wash ($8), another natural plant-based wunderkind that conditions skin gently, leaving it glowing and silky smooth. After we step out of the shower, we massage JASON Cranberry Hand & Body Lotion ($7) into our skin to seal in the benefits of that shower gel. It contains antioxidant-rich cranberry oil, green tea, and Vitamin E to nourish skin deeply. We've also taken to keeping a tube of Desert Essence Organics Pumpkin Hand Repair Cream ($8) at our desks to keep chapped hands at bay in cooler weather.
For all-day tint and softness, we're digging Covergirl Outlast Lipstain in Cinnamon Smile ($9) - the pinky-brown shade is flattering on a wide range of complexions, and we don't have to reapply all day! A light dusting of Milani Powder Mosaics Multi Color Blush Bronzer & Brightener in Sunset Spice ($9) adds warmth and radiance to our skin, and helps extend our summer tan just a bit longer. Of course, our nails need some attention, too, and Essie Jelly Apple Nail Color ($8) is way healthier for us than giving in to our candy apple cravings.
Whether you can't get enough pumpkin, ginger, apples, cranberries, cinnamon, or other fall fave flavors, Walgreens is your one-stop shop for fall-flavored beauty on the cheap. Because, be honest, who doesn't love saving money, especially when it leaves us with more cash for cozy sweaters and divine boots?
