It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Hello gorgeous,
A couple weeks ago, I went to a Fashion Week party and was thrilled to find June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque ($78) in my goody bag. Now, June Jacobs is one of the beauty world's most famous luxury spa experts, and her skincare line is beloved by celebs, socials, and other fancy people with disposable income. Anyway, I'd always heard about the wonders of her Pumpkin Peeling Masque. A little backstory: Not only is pumpkin a natural anti-oxidant, it's full of enzymes that gently and naturally slough off dead skin cells and impurities. So, this masque is a fabulously non-invasive alternative to rough, grainy exfoliating treatments! You slather it on clean skin--let it remain for 10 minutes on the face and 30 minutes on the body (great for flaky areas and bacne)--and then rinse it off. Your skin will feel totally purified, and ridiculously soft and smooth. Did I mention that the masque smells like the chic-est, nutmeggy-ish pumpkin pie, ever? So warm and "autumnal." I love that word.

Admittedly, this stuff is kind of expensive. No worries! I found Freeman Good Stuff Organics Pumpkin Enzymes Facial Mask ($8.99) at Duane Reade, and it does exactly the same thing (and it's paraben-free, like June Jacobs'!). And along with pumpkin, it also contains organic chamomile to soothe and organic apple extract to hep brighten dull skin. Good-for-you and packaged in recycled plastic. Love.

Would love to try the June Jacobs, but since I'm a budget fashionista, the Duane Reade one will work just fine. Thanks! Smooches.
