Survival Kit: Fall 2012

Fall is officially here and we’re focused on transitioning our beauty wardrobes. That means we’re ditching the summery scents, nixing the lightweight moisturizers, and bidding adieu to beachy waves. Instead, we’re incorporating new season-appropriate products into our routines and to get you inspired to do the same, here’s a look at what three Birchbox staffers are planning to add into their lineups this autumn.

Sedu® Anti-Frizz Polishing Treatment with Pure Moroccan Argan Oil - 3.4 oz. During summer, I stock up on curl-enhancing products to create beachy waves. But for fall, I’m all about using my flat iron to get straight, shiny hair. I like to use a few drops of Sedu® oil to keep my hair from drying out—it also helps with frizz!

Skin, An Apothecary Soy Body Whip in Poppy. A heavy-duty moisturizer is a must for my dry hands, elbows, and knees. I have sensitive skin so I try to avoid anything with parabens—this yummy lotion does the trick.

boscia Oil-free Nightly Hydration. With the busy holiday season approaching, I can’t always get a good night sleep. I like to apply boscia’s cream before bed because regulates oil and combats breakouts overnight.

BVLGARI Mon Jasmine Noir. I’ve stashed away my tropical spritz and switched over to Bulgari’s elegant mix of floral and woody notes. The compact bottle is the perfect addition to my gym bag.

Youngblood Mineral Primer. My skin tends to get a little dry and flaky once the weather gets cooler. I use this mineral primer before I apply my foundation to get even coverage.

LiQWd Professional Smoothing Catalyst. My hair tends to get really static-y in the fall when it’s drier outside. I’m going to switch to this smoothing spray until the spring because I’ve found it helps keep my flyaways at bay.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+. Even though the days are getting shorter, protecting my skin from sun damage is still my top priority. This all-in-one product is great—it’s packed with vitamins and has SPF 25 to keep my skin safe.

Mighty Leaf Tea - Tea Pouches. Any Birchbox staffer can tell you our office tends to get a little chilly, especially in the fall and winter. To stay cozy all day long, I warm up by sipping on these yummy tea blends.
