Get Toasty With Autumn Beauty
14 September 2020
Autumn Beauty has landed – that’s right, allbeauties, summer is out, autumn is in. We adore everything about the period from September to November… from golden yellow leaves crunching underfoot and warming hot cups of tea, to Autumn harvests and toasty bonfires. Whether it’s your favourite season of the year, or just represents the long stretch until Christmas, we’re here to share some autumnal ingredient inspiration to help you get cosy indoors as the days draw in. This year has been one like no other, take some time out for you and bask in the golden hour of Autumn Beauty with us as we serve up some of our favourite Autumn beauty products!
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Is there anything that says “autumn” quite like that first pumpkin spice latte of the year? Rich and creamy, the combination of fiery, fragrant spices and warm, soothing latte is a match made in heaven.
But who says you can’t bring that same sensory extravaganza into other areas of your life? End your day fragrantly by using the Payot Cleansing Gel with Cinnamon Extract. Follow up with a revitalising face mask (we recommend the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask ) for the perfect autumn skincare routine. Remember, healthy skin is always in season!
Looking for a spice latte aroma from a fragrance? Try Halston Catalyst Eau de Toilette which includes clove, nutmeg and cinnamon amongst its notes.
Creamy Hot Chocolate
An oldie but a goodie, you can’t beat a hot chocolate laden with mini-marshmallows. A decadent autumn treat, best served after a bracing walk in the countryside, hot chocolate is definitely one of our favourite perks to the days getting colder!
For that scrumptious chocolate experience (without the calories), we’ve got the answer. No hot bath is complete without the Philosophy Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookie Set, consisting of luscious shampoo, bath and shower gel, and additional body lotion – bathe in this and you’ll smell good enough to eat!
If you can’t resist the chocolatey facets of autumn, then you can also bring it into your fragrance collection with Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme, an Eau de Parfum which has strong marshmallow and vanilla notes.
Another day, another latte. What is it about that milky, creamy goodness that is so comforting to the soul?
If your gingerbread latte obsession is getting slightly out of control (we hear you) Molton Brown has you covered with their Heavenly Gingerlily range. With notes of cardamom, ginger and cloves, you can transform your bathroom into a sensory paradise. We love the Caressing Body Polisher, which uses Tahitian sand to remove impurities and dead skin cells.
If your hair develops a mind of its own at the first signs of autumn, you might also want to look at Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi Wild Ginger range. Not only does it smell like you’ve magically stumbled into a gingerbread house, but it’s been designed to tame the toughest of tangles too.
Looking for a scent that captures the essence of the perfect ginger latte? Try Shawn Mendes Signature II , a unisex fragrance which features notes of maple, walnut and ginger.
