Welcome to A Modern Girl Recommends and for today I’m talking October Favorites from a beauty subscription to movies and much more these were and will continue to be favorites, but what might they be? Let’s have a look and get things started with my October 2017 Favorites.
Full size | $19.00
My first October 2017 Favorite is a sample that I had found while organizing and it’s the Voluspa Crisp Champagne Home and Body Mist and it smells incredible, it’s slightly sweet with a touch of fresh floral and citrus and I kid you not the scent lasts throughout the day.
PEARLESSENCE | COCONUT WATER HYDRATING FACE MIST
PRICE | $6.99 @ TJ MAXX
PEARLESSENCE | CUCUMBER WATER HYDRATING FACE MIST
PRICE | $6.99 @ TJ MAXX
This next favorite is actually two items from my TJ Maxx haul back in September and I have been testing them ever since and they’re the Pearlessence Hydrating Face Mist in Coconut Water and Cucumber Water and they make the October cut because they smell great, they keep skin perfectly hydrated with a dewy glow and both work nicely as a makeup setting spray.
FULL SIZE | $48.00
My next favorite is a sample that was from my September Play! By Sephora Bag and it’s the Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask by Herbivore and this mask does everything it says it does just after one use, my skin was visibly smoother, hydrated and glowing and that’s why it makes the cut.
FULL SIZE | $28.00
The next item in my favorites is a sample that I had received in my October Ipsy Bag and it’s the BRTC Jasmine Waterful Sleeping Mask and I absolutely love this mask it is so relaxing and it leaves my skin radiant.
Cost | $13.00
I was instantly hooked on this next product it smells amazing like florally with hints of sweetness and it’s the Honeymania Shower Gel by The Body Shop. I personally like that this shower gel foams really well and a little goes a long way and an added bonus it’s also very moisturizing.
Cost | $6.99
And yes a feminine protection product has landed into my October 2017 Favorites and I wanted to bring some attention to this brand I am not being sponsored by them, but I think they are an amazing company that gives back in a wonderful way. The company is This Is L and they sell Organic Chlorine Free Ultra thin pads and for each bag that’s purchased This is L will donate one bag of pads to a woman in need, which I think is incredible sometimes we can forget that not everybody is fortunate enough to have the basic needs and I like that This Is L is bringing that thought back to the forefront. Besides from coming with a great cause This Is L’s pads are just as great they are ultra thin, but they get the job done, they’re soft and non irritating.
FULL SIZE | $41.00
My next favorite is a sample and this one is from my October Play! By Sephora Bag and this is the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Booster Serum and I really liked this product because it instantly brings hydration to the skin and it works extremely well with my other skin care and makeup products.
Cost | $3.00 each
The D’ Mask Rose Water Revital Mask is up next as one of my favorites I had received this mask in my October 2017 Facetory subscription and it was the first one that I had tried and it was absolutely perfect my skin stayed hydrated and smooth for three days and the mask smells like an evening walk in an English garden very fresh, soothing and of course relaxing and that is why this sheet mask has made it into my October 2017 Favorites.
COST | $5.95 +$2.95 SHIPPING INCLUDES 4 MASKS
$15.95 + $3.95 SHIPPING FOR 7 SHEET MASKS
FaceTory was definitely the subscription that took center stage last month and it quickly became a favorite. Facetory is the perfect monthly subscription for those who love sheet masks and a subscription on a budget that delivers products you actually want. I still have one more mask to sample from my October box, however they have all been great .
Byron & CO. Soothing Bath Soak with Pink Salt
Cost | $5.99
The next item in my October 2017 Favorites is the perfect end of the day ready to unwind product and it’s the Byron & CO. Bath Soak that has a beautiful garden rose scent, it contains pink salt and is made in Australia. This bath soak is very relaxing soak and it restores one’s mood, spirit and body too. This was a TJ Maxx find and if you ever come across this product while at TJ Maxx I highly recommend picking up one for yourself.
Carrie Pilby was a Netflix film I viewed last month and it was one of those you have to leave your fears behind and just live life kind of films and there is something in this film for everyone where you can definitely relate to in one way or another the characters were great, the actors that played them were perfect and this is definitely a must see movie pick.
Get Out was a movie that I wanted to see this year, however I was traveling and just didn’t get the opportunity so I had rented it on iTunes and if you have not seen this movie pause everything and rent it, however, it’s available now on cable and if you like M. Night Shyamalan type movies and movies where they play with your mind and leave you totally freaked out, a little puzzle and with a slight grin Get Out is it. It’s a psychological thriller and the best way to describe it would be the movie Guess Who’s coming to dinner?, meets The Shinning with a stop off at the Stepford Wives.
And that was my October 2017 Favorites and a great deal of these products will be favorites of mine for as long as they’re available. Thanks as usual for stopping by and like, share and subscribe for more to come and I will see you soon.
