Five Great Products For An Autumn Pick-Me-Up

Five Great Products For When You Need An Autumn Pick-Me-Up

Here’s five of my top picks for those chilly, dark autumn days when you just need a little pick-me-up…

When the temperature drops, the leaves fall from the trees and it gets dark before you’ve even had your dinner – that’s when you know autumn and winter have fully taken over. And as much as I love pumpkin picking, chunky knit sweaters and cosy nights in, I know that some days it can all just seem a bit bleak. And on those days even the most die-hard autumn lover would deserve a treat or two.

So it made sense to me that I recommended some great picks that I’ve found from Fragrance Direct this month. These are the products that will instantly help to perk your day right back up – no matter how chilly or dark it is outside. And they’re sure to bring a smile to your face because as we know, everything from Fragrance Direct has up to 70% off the retail price. Which is another reason to treat yourself, right?

Morphe Eyeshadow Palette Hot Spot 35H

If you’re anything like me then a good make up palette is essential no matter what time of year it is – so there’s nothing better than a pick-me-up like this when it’s chilly and cold and a bit ‘meh’! I love the fact you can now get Morphe from Fragrance Direct as they’re one of those elite beauty brands that you may not associate with the beauty retailer. However they stock several of the Morphe mega-palettes and I think that the Hot Spot 35H is perfect for an autumn and winter pick-me-up. It’s got lots of warm autumn tones and some bright colours in there too that mean even though it’s cold outside you can have a play with some new eye looks safe in the knowledge that the Morphe formula is exceptional. Plus it’s only £16.99 so over £6 cheaper than the normal RRP.

Stila Shimmer And Glow Liquid Eyeshadow

Okay so technically I’m cheating by including some more eye products but speaking from personal preference there’s nothing I enjoy more in the colder months than wrapping up indoors and experimenting with new make up – and I usually focus on creating new eye looks. So another great pick-me-up would be the range of Stila Shimmer And Glow Liquid Eyeshadow that you can get from Fragrance Direct with over £10 off each – which means they’re a very worthy purchase and treat! I love the metallic formula you get from these (shades shown Twig and Kitten) and it adds extra dimension to the eyes. You can create a great smoke with the Morphe palette and apply these to the lid for a show-stopping eye look. Even if you’re just at home in your snuggly pjs – instant pick-me-up points!

YSL Libre Eau de Parfum

The perfume of the moment is YSL Libre Eau de Parfum – it’s everywhere and tipped to be one of this year’s best-selling female fragrances. And I can vouch for how beautiful it is. I’m very picky with fragrance and only like things that are a bit sultry, seductive and musky – and this one just has that beautiful elite level of scent to it. Plus it looks pretty darn sexy, right?! With orange blossom and lavender you’d expect it to be a fruity fragrance but it’s actually got this blend that’s warm and sensual without being floral so it’s a great cold-months perfume to wear. It’s also really powerful without being overwhelming. I find YSL scents are always high-performing, so this is no surprise to me but you can apply in the morning and still smell it hours later. A great scent instantly lifts the mood so it’s a good way to give yourself a pick-me-up treat in autumn.

Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon

Forever one of my go-to products for great nightly skincare and a luxurious feeling regime step, the Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon is a must-have if you fancy a treat this autumn. It can do wonders for the skin when applied before you go to sleep and it’s gel to cream formula means it melts into the skin so it feels really relaxing upon application too. Not just that, but it smells really relaxing and almost aromatherapy-like so that when you have it on it can help to relax you before bed – which can be something that we all need help with from time to time, especially when it’s chilly! I find that my skin looks rested, radiant and feels much soft after I’ve used this and it’s really easy to add to your existing regime. A great and luxurious little treat that gives a nightly pamper.

I Love Gingerbread Cookie Bathtime Treats

Nothing cheers me up and relaxes me at the same time more than a bubble bath in the winter and right now I’m loving the I Love Gingerbread Cookie Bathtime Treats Set which has a huge bottle of Gingerbread scented bubble bath and a matching sponge. Plus the whole lovely set is only £3.99 so it’s completely budget friendly and won’t break the bank. Even better when you want an affordable treat! The scent itself is very much like warm cookies and gingerbread, so it’s very relaxing as the tap runs and it does create a lot of bubbles. My children ask for this in their baths now too as it smells so yummy…but you’ll probably want an actual Gingerbread biscuit to nibble on too!

I Love Gingerbread Cookie Bathtime Treats

So there we have it, some simple products you can treat yourself to this autumn and give yourself a huge pick-me-up no matter what your budget. It’s easy to justify a little treat when it’s chilly, think of all the money you’ll save because it’s too cold to go out! (That’s what I tell myself anyway!) Remember to check out Fragrance Direct for all your autumn treats and a lot of seasonal savings.
