The October Favorites Thread!

BrendaBT October Favorite Products.jpg


Happy pumpkin spice and spooky season! As October has come to an end, it is time to share our monthly favorites. This is a thread to share any hair, skincare, fragrance, and/or makeup products you have been loving most lately – plus maybe some  tips and tricks on how to use these products. We would love all your recommendations, including holy-grails that you keep coming back to, or new finds that you can’t seem to stop reaching for.


Here are my monthly favorites:

SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence Serum

Dr. Barbara Sturm Calming Serum

Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides

Kaja Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush 06 Flirty

PAT McGRATH LABS MatteTrance™ Lipstick Omi 107

@faeriegirl  I love the dr Dennis Gross eye serum. Seems like the drunk elephant is fav of lots of us.

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

Great list @faeriegirl! Love the Tarte foundation. 💖 Will have to try that DDG eye serum soon; lots of raves for it among the BIC crowd!

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

@faeriegirl Such a good list! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

@BrendaBT I'm also loving the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides.  I got a sample from the Rewards Bazaar and like it so much I will be buying the full size during the sale.


I'm also enjoying LANEIGE Lip Glowy Balm Pear.  I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask morning and night, and put this on in the afternoon.  It's convenient to use!


I've been using Paula's Choice Makeup Remover for several weeks now, and have gotten into the groove with it so I'm adding it to this list.  I find it's best to apply a little more than I think I need - that way the cotton ball glides easily.  It is gentle, and doesn't irritate my eyes.  Plus, I got it for only $11 (normally $16).


I know this is a little premature, but I also used Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo, and was very impressed with the results.  (Note: I used this two washing in a row, and it was too much for my hair.  I'm eager to use it again, but will just have to wait.)


I have another couple new products that I'm trying out, and hope to add them to the November favorites (one by The Inkey List, and one by FAB).

Beautiful favorites @greeneyedgirl107!! 🥰

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

@greeneyedgirl107 That's exactly how I got into Lala Whippped Moisturizer as well! I got a sample size, my skin absolutely loved it and now is one of my favorite moisturizers 🙂 

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

So many new favorites in October! I'll have to brainstorm and share my list next after I gather my thoughts!

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

omg I love all 4 of those products. The drunk elephant moisturizer is by far the best cream I've used. I love to put it on after my nightly showers and I wake up with the smoothest, hydrated face. 

Re: The October Favorites Thread!

@luvbug16 Oh yay! I'm so happy you love this moisturizer. I agree, I love how rich it is, using it at night and waking up with the most soft moisturized skin, specially around this season when my skin needs a little extra TLC. 🙂
