Trend-Filled Thursdays: Pumpkin Products

Today is Thanksgiving, which means one thing. Turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Loads of pumpkin pie. So why not really get in the holiday spirit with products scented, infused and otherwise created with pumpkin? This gourd-like squash originates all the way back to sometime between 5000-7000 B.C. in Mexico. Now that's a long time to be using the alpha and beta carotene, lutein and Vitamin A found within this fabulous plant! Check out the products that are amazing circa now -- and happy Thanksgiving!

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Peel ($44 at I'm already a huge fan of the brand's Cucumber Gel Masque, so I assumed this peel could be no worse -- and luckily, I was right! It cleanses, it moisturizes, it tones, it scrubs away every single piece of dead skin you thought you had and more. Plus it smells unbelievably fresh -- and the somewhat clinical packaging looks perfect in my medicine cabinet.

Slatkin & Co. Ceramic Pumpkin Figural Candle ($6.25 at Does it get any cuter than this ceramic candle shaped exactly like a pumpkin? I think not. Plus the scent is unbelievably real -- and it makes your whole house or apartment smell so delectable in a matter of minutes!

Philosophy Pumpkin Spice Muffin Flavored Lip Shine ($12 at Looking for a lipgloss that tastes utterly and completely like pumpkins -- but isn't too overly, unbearably sweet? Then you have to check out this iteration, which will make your lips super glossy and shiny but won't leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.

on10 Disney Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm SPF 15 ($9 at There are so many things I love about this balm, it's hard to pick just one. So, okay, I won't! The SPF keeps my lips from getting harmed by UV rays, the moisturizing factor totally keeps my pout soft and conditioned, and the packaging is totally adorable. Because honestly, who could resist a Disney princess?

Belli Skincare Stretchmark Minimizing Cream ($52 at While this is technically formulated for mamas or mamas to be, let's face it -- we all get an annoying stretch mark from time to time! Well, this is guaranteed to help make them disappear. That's enough for me!
