8 Pumpkin Beauty Products To Replace Your PSL Obsession
Pumpkin-based skincare can sound like smearing a PSL on your face. Except it’s not just for seasonal fun—pumpkin is incredibly effective as one of nature’s greatest exfoliants. It not only helps break down dead skin cells to help smooth skin’s surface, it also delivers powerful vitamins and antioxidants to help with youthful, glowing skin. We’ve rounded up eight beauty products we’re really pumpkin-psyched about.
Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask ($58) is your new BFF for tired, dull, congested skin with the powerful combo of pumpkin enzyme, alpha hydroxy acid, and aluminum oxide crystals (i.e. it basically chemically exfoliates for a powerful, clearing treatment).
Too Cool For School Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask ($8) is a bio cellulose gel sheet mask, meaning it fits really snuggly on your face and won’t slide off. Secondly, and most importantly, it has 24 karat gold, white gold, (you are a queen and you deserve it!) and pumpkin extract for a brightened, soothed, and hydrated face.
Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm ($3.30) has no surprises, meaning the classic PSL flavor you love with a mix of creamy pumpkin and spices, with classic Burt’s formula with no parabens, phthalates, SLS, or petrolatum.
Elaa Pumpkin Radiance Renewing Enzyme Mask ($49) is your solution if you’d like to do things naturally. This organic enzymatic mask gently removes dead skin cells, while reducing hyper-pigmentation. And it heals irritated skin and kills bacteria with the addition of Manuka honey.
June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque ($65) works quickly to rebuild the elasticity of skin with the power of pumpkin enzymes. And it stimulates cell turnover, which improves skin’s texture and tone. And if that wasn’t enough, the mask is boosted with a blend of white, red, and green tea extracts to neutralize free radicals, which will protect you from environmental damage and premature aging.
Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask ($12) is your solution to brightening and exfoliation on a budget. At only $12 this fella lifts away dead skin cells and resurfaces skin for even tone and texture with the aid of organic pumpkin. And Manuka honey and citrus-based glycolic acid help brighten and make skin more radiant and luminous. As the song goes, “shine bright like a”…pumpkin-exfoliated face. (Is that not right?)
