I can not believe its already OCTOBER!
Bring on the pumpkins, the haunted houses, the pumpkin patch, the pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, booties, fall decor, and fall sweaters!!
YASSS QUEENS, YES!
Can you tell I like the fall just a little? 🙂 I mean nothing beats those long summer nights, but if it’s going to get close it would be all things PUMPKIN!
October it’s still pretty warm here in Texas, but we’re not much in the direct sun on the water anymore because school is in full swing and fall sports seem to occupy all the free time. October for me seems to be the “ah-hah” moment. The “Ah-hah” moment when I realize this chick had way to much fun in the sun this summer and you can tell by her skin and lack of “keeping up” on the care, maintenance, and protection of it.
This tan is fading quickly so it’s time to get this skin in check!
So October is the month I seem to get really back in getting my skin, hair, and health back on track! This months October Obsessions will be geared just to get that fresh SHINE back!
First October Obsession are these AH-MAZING whitening stripes:
BURST WHITENING STRIPS:
Now I have EXTREMELY sensitive teeth! Extremely! I’ve always been an over brusher and brushing too hard that I have severe gum recession so whitening my teeth has ALWAYS been a challenge! I have the trays and have tried everything under the sun for super sensitive teeth and even if I brush with Sensodyne before and after I still can’t smile and my teeth kill until the next morning. I used to dread having to whiten my teeth before competitions because I knew I couldn’t pass the pain and sensitivity! WELL…. not any longer! Whoo hoo! Thanks to these BURST WHITENING STRIPS!
Whitney, our Burst girl here are Mom Queen had these actually at our last Open House but I was working and completely missed them. I had no idea they had whitening stripes until MANY of the girls that attended started asking if I had any more or how you to get in touch with her after they tried her party giveaways of the stripes. They were a crowd favorite! Once my girlfriend asked that I know has crazy sensitive teeth like me, I jumped on the band wagon as well! All I want to know is; where have these been all my competition days! 😉 LOVE them! Highly recommend giving them a try! You get 7 sets in a box and a box is only $15! If you use discounts even less!

Next for October makes the WORLD of improvement for all that summer sun that left a mark on your face!
BEAUTYCOUNTER + No. 1 BRIGHTENING + VITAMIN C:
This is PERFECT for trying to get back your even clear skin tone you had from before to much sun damage. It really brightens and refreshes your skin tone. It’s a lightweight serum and smells just like vitamin c. I actually use it after my toner before my day time face lotion, but you can you it as your daily serum/lotion as well. I actually was waiting for my face lotion auto ship and used solely this during the day until it arrived and it worked VERY well. I’v been using it now only for 3 weeks since the end of my lake days this year, and I can totally see my skin renewing and getting me back that fresh even tone. This is like face crack for your skin tone. I really enjoy it this time of the year. I don’t use it in the summer just because of the vitamin c and being in so much sun, I tend to use products with a high SPF in the summer but I really enjoy the effects of using this ALL winter long.
After removing my collagen creamer (when I was weekly intermittent fasting) because of the caloric intake I could tell a difference in my skin, hair, and JOINTS after time. I needed a replacement and supplement seemed to be the easiest additive. I’ve been using this in replace of my collagen creamer:
SUPER COLLAGEN +C:
It’s pretty self explanatory the many effects of a collagen supplement but for those that missed my blog on the MANY benefits of adding collagen to your day check out my blog: Collagen It Does A Body Good . Since removing my collagen creamer I could tell a difference in my joints, skin, and hair. Let’s face it, I’m not getting any younger! lol. So adding this supplement has gotten me back to how I felt with Collagen in my everyday. Now this is 6,000 mg of Type 1 & 3, some days I’m going to admit I take 2! ;)- Hey can’t hurt right? Lol. Some days I just feel I may need it more after scaring my sleepless self in the mirror! JK, not really. If you don’t have collagen in your every day, this is a very easy way to add it and notice a difference after time, especially when you stop. I highly encourage you if you don’t have a collagen additive as a female in your day, get it girl! You’ll be happy you did!
Last up for October, I couldn’t resist. Come on; pink packaging? Rose gold? Brightening? You had me at hello!
111SKIN’S 24K ROSE FOLD FACIAL TREATMENT MASK:
I received this actually in my fall FAB FIT FUN box! I love it’s packaging (yes sorry I can’t resist pink and shiny things) and if you’ve seen my Insta or FB stories @RealMomQueen you will know my love for a face mask, especially the easy peel of sheet ones.
So I did a little homework while I had this pretty girl on my face and read the reviews and purchase options. SUCH a wide range. You can get this pack of 5 make anywhere online from $40-160! Exact product so that’s kind of sketchy. The link I’m sharing it’s $47 for 5 that’s less than $10 a mask. It’s worth the $10 I feel, not the crazy expensive options though.
I love it’s cooling effect it, stayed cool the entire time. I just love the refreshing vibe of a cooling mask, I also loved it’s smell. For this time of year, I thought it was very refreshing and I did see it’s brightening results. The one thing I learned after my first is I cut my own eyes of this mask, the mask didn’t seem to fit my face fully so I improvised and used the cut outs after my first attempt. I saw on it’s reviews this is common, so just a little warning when it comes to fit. I enjoy any brightening mask this time of the year and I thought the cooling effects were a plus when trying to get that “fresh” look back after so much summer sun.
It seems the month of October I’m always in “hurry repair” mode for personal hygiene end health. If you haven’t tried one of these products this fall, give it a try Queens! I hope you find that at least one of these October Obsessions can add a little STRENGTH and SHINE to your October!
Happy Pumpkin Everything Mom Queens!
