These days, pumpkin-spice-this and pumpkin-spice-that crowd the shelves in every kind of store - and that's a great thing! But in a plenty of pumpkin, it's not always easy to know what's really worth bringing home...

So I give you the ultimate fall shopping list! Here's what I have purchased, what I would still love to indulge in, and even a few other fun options thrown in...


Starting the Day Off Right!

Nothing like starting a beautiful autumn day with beautifully scented body and skin care products!


Shower Time

Bath & Body Works® Favorites: SHOP NOW

From their signature scents to welcomed additions, Bath and Body Works is known for kicking off the season with a huge variety of seasonal body care. Since I prefer spicer, traditional scents I'm often a fan of scents like Leaves, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Harvest Gathering, Cider Lane, etc. so in a BBW's shower gel I go for anything pumpkin-y, apple-y, and with a bit of sweetness here or there, but nothing overly sugary... here are a few faves!


What I bought:

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Shower Gel & Body Lotion: "A sweet fall treat of heirloom pumpkin, autumn cinnamon, ginger snap & whipped vanilla."

This is an ultimate must for me! It's the perfect pumpkin spice body wash and lotion set for fall. I usually buy the body cream as well to not only have enough to last all fall, but to mix it up from the lotion.


Other Great Options:

"Our dermatologist-tested Shower Gel combines nourishing vitamin E, skin-loving shea butter & aloe to create a rich, bubbly lather... Our Super Smooth Body Lotion provides 24 hours of nourishing moisture — guaranteed! Infused with shea butter, coconut oil & vitamin E, it absorbs quickly into skin, so it feels noticeably softer after use."

  • Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Shower Gel & Body Lotion: "A specially crafted mug of pumpkin latte, toasted marshmallows, creamy sandalwood & praline musk."

  • Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Whipped Body Mousse: "Treat yourself to our moisturizing Whipped Body Mousse with vitamin E, cocoa butter & almond oil."

  • Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Whipped Marshmallow Body Scrub: "With smoothing sugar crystals, shea butter & vitamin E, this body scrub’s a fluffy, whipped, skin-soothing treat."

What I bought:

  • Punkin Pumpkin Bath Bomb: "Carve out some me-time with the eerily soothing effects of pumpkin powder and fragrant cinnamon leaf oil. Create a jack-o-lovely bathtime brew with brightly-colored hues for a warming soak with a citrusy kick that’ll make any day feel like a treat. This year, Punkin doesn't have glow-in-the-dark eyes, but we promise he’s still lit."

  • Ghost in the Dark Bar Soap: "This skin-friendly ghost keeps your corporeal form in fine physical condition. Citrus-sweet lemongrass lifts spirits, while fair trade organic cocoa butter moisturizes skin, making it eerily supple and smooth. No need to worry about losing this bar in the ether: it glows in the dark! Scare away dirt, oil and dryness with one multi-tasking bar."

  • Boo! Shower Slime: "Meet your slimy, self-care sidekick. This slippery vegan shower slime is made with scrubby ground coconut shell to help shake off your dead skin cells and leave you feeling soft and smooth. Plus it comes with Lord Of Misrule's spicy-sweet perfume of vanilla absolute, black pepper oil and dark Sumatran patchouli oil for an aroma that's stimulating, comforting and ground all at once. This product is all treat, no tricks."

  • Bewitched Bubble Bar: "Drop your superstitions: crossing paths with this black cat brings nothing but luck. Crumble this fab feline under the tap to conjure a cloud of fruity bubbles and dark, mysterious waters. One bath and you'll agree: this kitty is absolute purrfection."

Other Great Options:

  • Bat Art Bath Bomb: "Live out your goth-tub fantasies with this mad batter. Drop this bat in the water and inhale the herbaceous aroma of Junk Perfume as your sonar picks up flutters of revitalizing Sicilian lemon, red mandarin, rosemary and sage oils. Then wing your way through waters of glittering black with swirls of purple, blue and pink. You won't be able to echo-locate these limited-edition treats for long, so grab them before they flap away!"

  • Toffee Apple Lip Scrub: "We know you'll absolutely fall in love with this one. Our first double-flavored buffer, you get a duo of deliciousness with both green apple and sticky toffee tastes. The trick to this treat is the castor sugar and fine sea salt, smoothing the lips while organic jojoba and shea butter smack on the softness. Now you have just what you need to add some sweetness, spice and softness to your favorite season."

  • Very Very Frightening Shower Gel: "Shivers down your spine? Body aching all the time? Just hop in the shower with our new lemony-fresh sudser. Very Very Frightening hits with a thunderbolt and lightning of grapefruit and bergamot, sharing its scent with old favorite, Space Girl Bath Bomb. Meanwhile, antioxidant-rich safflower petal infusion and soothing, regenerative plantain extract keeps the skin terrifyingly soft. Put aside a couple of these devils for yourself before they disappear!"
