I think this is my first time ever saying that I don't mind September ended because hellllllo, October! Come to mama! But seriously. October is bae. I do, however, want to share with you guys my September faves because I have a few that I really want to share with you guys that I've really been loving. Do you guys like these type of posts? I like them because they kind of sum up the must haves between all the reviews and makeup tutorials.

Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Deodorant - I think I've shared my woes of finding a natural, aluminum-free deodorant with you guys before. Last year, I tested positive for the BRCA2 gene so I've been trying to find more natural body care products - including deodorant. Ya'll don't even want to know how crazy it was testing these deodorants in the summer. It was a pretty smelly time. At one time, I even broke out and what seemed like a burn another time. Needless to say, I was about to give up when Love Beauty & Planet announced their newest product - an aluminum-free deodorant. I literally went searching EVERYWHERE for this, found it and have been using it since. It's my favorite, hands down. It does leave your under arms a little sticky but it's a small price to pay for a natural deodorant that doesn't make you stink.

ColourPop x Karruche She Palette ($16) - Another month, another ColourPop palette I'm obsessed with! The She Palette has been out for quite some time now but it was in heavy rotation last month with all of it's sweet rose tones. You can check out my full review here!

ColourPop Lux Lipstick in Tip Toe ($7) - If you're a pale babe like myself, you might have a hard time finding that perfect nude. Look no further! Tip Toe is where it's at. It's cool-toned with a touch of pink for that "your lips but better" look!

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme - I'm sure you guys have heard me talk about my obsession with Nip + Fab so it'll come as no surprise that these pads were - and still are - one of my fave parts of my skincare routine. These pads come pre-soaked in an acidic blend of glycolic acid (5%!), salicylic acid, lactic acid and hyaluronic acid to help brighten your skin and unclog any congestion on your face as well as help your skin's natural exfoliation process. I use these about three times a week and have noticed a huge difference in my skin's texture!

Makeup Revolution Blush Golden Sugar 2 Palette ($10) - If you're looking for a glow within kind of highlight, this is the palette for you. A highlight that can be seen from space is fun and all but I love the natural highlight this palette gives. My favorite is the bottom left shade which unfortunately doesn't have a name but is the prettiest highlight.

DERMA E Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil ($17.99) - I used to be a micellar water kind of girl to remove my makeup but after running out, I found that other cleaners weren't doing the job. I'd still have makeup left over. DERMA E was so kind of enough to send me this a few months ago and it's been my fave since. It's gentle and soft and removes all my makeup - including stubborn waterproof mascara!

ColourPop No Filter Sheer Matte Pressed Powder in Light ($9) - Who am I?! I never used to use a face powder. Truthfully, I probably don't use it in the way you're supposed to. I love using this after I've bronzed my face. I take some powder on a damp BeautyBlender and swipe right underneath my cheekbones (and where I applied my bronzer) for an insta-contoured look!

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Mousse in Dark ($29) - I love a good self tanner! I'm not one to lay out in the sun (I literally don't even have time) so I have to rely on self tanner to let my glowing tanned goddess out. Finding a good one that doesn't stink to high heavens, fades nicely and looks great is hard to come by. Sephora featured Isle of Paradise in their clean beauty section and on a total whim, I grabbed it and fell in love! It smells amazing, dries quickly, never streaks on me and lasts for a good week. I'm OBSESSED!

Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops in Dark ($29) - I grabbed these after falling in love with the tanning mousse to prolong my tan longer and love them as well. I had to test how many drops would work for me, but about 8-10 drops mixed into 1 1/2 pumps of my moisturizer works well for each section of my body (like legs would be one, arms, etc.). Again, no smell and it helps keep my tan going!

Phew! That's all for my September faves. See anything you love or are dying to try out? Let me know!
