Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

@lmaster Bath and body works pistachio ice cream?  They need to make it in a body cream or spray.

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

They would be genius to do so @SportyGirly125 I bought the candle online not knowing how it would smell,,, this is possibly one of the best scents ever!!

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

Pistachio frozen yogurt is my absolute favorite @lmaster.…I can’t imagine how delicious this candle must smell!!

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

It's the most delicious scent ever from bbw!! I thought strawberry pound cake was my favorite ... Nope!!! @eshoe 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

@TeamBIC Mine is Trader Joe's Cinnamon broom stick and Cinnamon whisks

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

@SportyGirly125 @Those are great! My Trader Joe’s didn’t seem to get the mini ones this year which was disappointing because I like them in the bathroom! 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

@Kim888 Aww that sucks they didn't have the mini ones.  Maybe they will get them in soon.

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

I picked up VOLUSPA Spiced Pumpkin Latte Glass Candle at my grocery store, of all places, a couple of weeks ago. I love it so much that I definitely want to get another one during the upcoming Rouge sale!

 

I alternate between inexpensive candles and nicer candles because that can quickly become an expensive habit, and I also love the seasonal candles from Trader Joe's.

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Name a seasonal home scent you love and join us for a new prompt every week!

I recently broke out my VOLUSPA Spiced Pumpkin Latte Glass Candle from last year and can confirm the autumnal vibes are immaculate.  I switch back and forth between this one and my all-time fave, VOLUSPA Gilt Pomander & Hinoki Glass Jar Candle 18 oz/ 510 g 1-wick Candle!

Fall Hair Care: I've spent some time working on hair care over the last couple of years, trying new things to find out what works and what doesn't. Here's what I have in the rotation for this fall:

Fall Hair Care: In ShowerFall Hair Care: In Shower

I try not to wash my hair everyday; it's more like every other day or if I can manage it, every 2 days though that can be a stretch. 

Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance™ Shampoo 8.5 oz/ 250 mL 

Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance™ Conditioner 8.5 oz/ 250 mL 

ALTERNA Haircare Holiday Moisture Duo 

 

Once per week or "as needed" I will reach for Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Triple Detox Shampoo or dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse to help clear my hair of any product build up. Or dpHUE Gloss+ Semi-permanent Hair Color and Deep Conditioner Dark Brown to boost er...color, and add a little glow to my tresses. 

 

Fall Hair Care: Post shower treatsFall Hair Care: Post shower treats

Spoiler

Aquis Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel - I like to let my hair air dry and the Aquis hair towel helps my hair dry more quickly. 

 

I aim to rotate an oil or an hair mask into my routine about once per week and a couple that I have on hand for this season include Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Strengthening Treatment Hair Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL, amika Oil Treatment, amika Triple Rx Mask (a recommendation from @Shosh85 years ago - thank you Shosh!), and the #Better Not Younger Hair Redemption Restorative Butter Masque (a thicker formula so I use a light hand with it). I have fine, thin strands of hair, just a lot of it, so I concentrate the hair oils or mask on the length of my hair, avoiding the crown so as to not weight it down even more and using whatever I have left on the palms of my hands to gently coat the ends, all with a light hand.

 

On certain days, I use a little of the Oribe Mini Dry Texturizing Spray 2.2 oz/ 75 mL at the crown to zhuzh it up for some much needed volume.

If my hair is not completely dry, I may pull it back and put it up with the Kitsch Microfiber Towel Scrunchies Micro Dot. I'm more inclined during the cooler seasons to blow dry my hair and it's the Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer White Dyson Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer Iron/Fuchsia for me. This version was limited edition a few years back. I was initially hesitant to pick up such a spendy tool that I don't use on a daily basis, but it has come in handy and I have no regrets. 

 

When it comes time to call it a night, I've started using silk pillow cases like Slip Silk Pillowcase - Standard/Queen and putting my hair in a braid before heading to bed; this has helped with keeping hair out of my face which I find helps minimize opportunities or conditions that can increase the likelihood of my breaking out (it doesn't mean I don't breakout (if only!))

@itsfi  That Triple RX mask is still my most favorite....... so of course that means they'd discontinue it! Glad you enjoy it too!

@TeamBIC I don't wash my hair everyday.  Just twice a week.

 

When I wash my hair I use a hair oil then let it sit for 5 minutes before I apply Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo mixed with Oribe Shampoo for Moisture & Control 8.5 oz/ 250 mL 

 

After shampoo I apply a hair mask Oribe Signature Moisture Hair Mask 5.9 oz/ 175 mL wait for another 5 minutes

 

Then apply a mixture of Pureology Smooth Perfection Conditioner mixed with Oribe Intense Conditioner for Moisture & Control 6.8 oz/ 200 mL 

 

When I get out of the shower I towel dry my hair and put in Oribe Hair Cream for Style 5 oz/ 150 mL mixed with ALTERNA Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Aging® Replenishing Moisture CC Cream 5.1 oz/ 150 mL and on the ends John Frieda Frizz Control Extra Strength mixed with Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment and put It's a 10 leave in conditioner (on top) and Beach Bum leave in conditoner on the ends.

 

I will leave my clean hair down the next day.  The day after I either spray Oribe Mini Gold Lust Dry Shampoo 1.3 oz/ 62mL # or Oribe Mini Dry Texturizing Spray 2.2 oz/ 75mL  or nothing at all (depends how active I am) and then the day after put it up in braids, a pony tail or bun.

@TeamBIC I wash with Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and condition with Redken Heavy Cream Super Treatment (I try to leave that on as long as possible).

 

For styling, I use Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, Phytodefrisant, It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Treatment, followed by my new addition of ALTERNA Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Aging® Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter that I got a DS sample of and am really liking, then John Freida Frizz Ease Super Serum on my ends).

 

I use Paul Mitchell Hot off the Press flat iron spray and Matrix Oil Wonders Egyptian Hibiscus Oil.  For dry shampoo I use Klorane's loose powder.  Pre-pandemic I used Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield every morning.

 

I think that's about it for my hair products!

My hair gal uses Oribe which I had never tried before. It’s wonderful! Oribe Shampoo for Brilliance & Shine 8.5 oz/ 250 mL Oribe Conditioner for Brilliance & Shine 6.8 oz/ 200 mL . And Oribe Maximista Hair Thickening Spray 6.8 oz/ 200 mL . My hair has never been so shiny! It is so rich that it lasts forever.  I also love Oribe Flashform Finishing Wax (not on Sephora right now I guess). I also am loving that little amazing points reward ofChristophe Robin Mini Volume Shampoo Paste with Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts 2.5 oz/ 75 mL in between for terrific volume on my short hair. Good example of something I never would have tried without that sample and boy am I glad I did!
