GOLDEN DELICIOUS: FALL HARVEST BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Fall harvest is a rich and plentiful time when beautiful things happen: apples ripen, pumpkins become stylish, and butternut squash soups are all the rage. Even as we approach winter and wave goodbye to fall, we still can smell Golden Delicious apples and taste delicious pumpkin pie…all in the shower and while we put on our makeup. If you are like me and love fall and all its flavors, here is a bounty of beauty products to help you preserve the season even after the leaves are gone.
Melvita, a French organic skincare company, makes a slew of organic shower gels worth stocking up on. Fall harvest fragrance options include zesty berries (raspberry, blueberry, redcurrant), and soft and creamy apple, quince, and hazelnut organic shower gels. We love the Yellow Fruit gentle exfoliator, which is a shower cream with three beautiful ingredients: fresh, wholesome apples, quince extracts, and hazelnut powder to slough away dead skin cells. It’s extremely mild and has the most delicious, deeply rich fall fragrance and is PH neutral for the skin. If you love apples and a good, creamy scrub, this one is for you.

If you want a lotion that really and truly moisturizes the heck out of your skin, you’ll never buy another after trying AHAVA. The body lotion is infused with natural emollients including aloe vera and palm and shea oils, but the texture is never greasy although it’s very rich. It is also powered by AHAVA’s patented Osmoter™ blend of Dead Sea Minerals: the result is super hydrated and recharged skin. Trust us when we say this never leaves our nightstand. The hibiscus moisturizes, while fig extracts benefit skin with anti-inflammatory properties and natural moisturizers.
Made with natural honey extracts and creamy vanilla essence, this Bath Bar is extremely affordable yet effective. Ours lasted for a good month and moisturized skin to boot. At only 99 cents, you can stock up on several, or give them to guests. The brand also makes Skin Indulgence Bath Bars with eco-friendly packaging.
