My Fall Favourites (not sponsored)


Fall is a lovely season for multiple reasons, one of them being that you feel no shame on spending a Sunday in sweatpants watching TV and sipping on your favourite tea! I just love fall for its beautiful colours , Apple picking and pumpkin pie! I've chosen some of my favourite products for this season and here they are! 
( top to bottom ) 

Boscia black thermal cleanser 

Two months ago I was forced to change cleansers because my skin felt it needed a change. Rotating cleansers is good because with time your skin gets use to a certain formula and at some point it stops doing the trick. I've been using this thermal cleanser and I really like the clean sensation on my skin. At first I was shocked at this black coloured cleanser that is warm as you rub it on your face but the end results have been great!

Price: 34$

Yes to blueberries exfoliator 

I first heard of these " say yes to... " products from a co-worker and she had great feedback from a moisturisers that she had bought in the states. So as always, curious me had to try these new products and I found this gentle exfoliator at the drug store that caught my attention. It indicates to use it 3 or 4 times a week but I've used it more... It's very gentle and I really love that clean feeling I get. This product line claims to be natural it might be true, I haven't really looked into it but it's pretty much fragrance free which is good! 

Price: 9$

Sugar honey fresh lipstick 

I've never been big on lipsticks, I guess that is the reason my lips are always dry and cracked...So this year I decided to change that for good! I tried other brands like eos and even Chanel but this one has truly won my heart. Not only does it treat your lips but it also adds color! This lipstick is long lasting and it's not sticky! This shade is perfect for a nude tone.

Price: 26$

Marc Jacobs magic marc'er 

I literally went crazy in New York's sephora because I was convinced that Marc Jacobs makeup line wasn't in Canada yet... Indeed I was wrong but oh well it was slightly cheaper over there... I wanted to buy everything but I eventually rationalized that I didn't need everything that was on display. I was first very impressed by the eyeliners because they are waterproof and smudge proof! I love love this eyeliner! It doesn't rub off and the tip is still in good conditions even after a month of almost daily usage.

Price 36$

Marc Jacobs gel eyeliners 

These eyeliners are highly pigmented and come in beautiful shades for this season. I have two of them and they have saved me money from buying fall eyeshadows. They are also waterproof and smudge proof! I just love them and I hope they come out with more shades!

Price: 30$ 

Lush macaroon bubble bath & bath bombs

Anytime is great for a bubble bath, but with the cooling weather these lush macaroons are amazing! They are adorable and smell amazingly great! I tend to use half of the macaroon with a bomb or sometimes just half of it when I want a quick bath time. Your entire bathroom will smell great! I also love bath bombs because they fizz :) 

Avo bath bomb is fresh and has a zesty scent, some might find it too refreshing for a night bubble bath but I find the smell is so relaxing! 

Yuzu and cocoa bubble bar bath, I call it the macaroon bubble bar I'm not sure if that's how they call them but that's what they remind me of. They are adorable and sweet, kind of like a macaroon :) this one has a beautiful fragrance of grapefruit with citrus notes, it goes great with the Avo bath bomb! 

Price: a total of 12$ ( average of both products ) 


Prana Machu Pichu fruits and nuts mix 

My family makes fun of me because I'm a bit like a squirrel ( even if I'm scared of them ) I snack a lot when I'm home and sometimes I hide my favourite foods. I discovered this fruit mix through my mom and I just love them! It's super healthy and tasteful! Goji berries for anti oxidants, mulberries, almonds and many other goodies! I only wish I came in a bigger bag...

Price: 4.50$ / bag

DAVIDsTEA , toasted walnut green tea 

This Montreal company has been very trendy and every season they showcase a new collection with limited edition teas. Fall is my favourite tea season because they are not too fruity or too candy sweet like Christmas, it's a good balance of fruits with spices, however this year I wasn't very impressed by their seasonal collection. So I had to rely on my good old first love and ultimate favourite tea; toasted walnut, this green tea is nicely blended with walnuts, almonds, coconut and a bit of pineapple. I highly recommend this tea for those that want to camouflage those grassy notes that are distinctive of a green tea. 

Price: 7.50$ / 50g 


All of these are some of my favourite fall products, I hope you can try some of these goodies because they are fabulous!
