BeautyPro Pumpkin Infused Sheet Mask.

I am truly that level of basic where it isn’t Halloween until I’m carving out a pumpkins innards by candle light with a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand. Unsurprisingly, in the lead up to all Hallows’ Eve, my beauty regime also gets an overhaul. Here are my favourite seasonal products.

BeautyPro Pumpkin Infused Sheet Mask, €5.50
If Halloween isn’t your thing, pull the curtains, ignore the doorbell and treat yourself to some TLC. Containing natural enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) from a variety of fruit and herb extracts, this travel mask will help to increase cell renewal, while leaving skin soft and supple.

Too Faced Pumpkin Spice Warm & Spicy Eye Shadow Palette, €47
Whether you’re trick-or-treating or tearing up the dance floor, in your erm, kitchen, this Halloween, you’ll look absolutely faboosh with this spicy palette.
Brewed with 18 scented seasonal shades — ranging from glistening pinks such as Oh My Gourd to the rich leafy Fall Vibes — the bewitching selection will make going from daytime dreamy to night-time sultry as easy as pumpkin pie.

Kate Somerville Face the Glow, €65
If you have ever manically washed glitter out of your hair and scrubbed body paint from your upper and lower extremities, you’ll know the value of a true all-over face and body scrub.
This three-piece kit of intensive exfoliating treatments helps to refine the appearance of pores and clear dead skin cell build-up on skin’s surface. Pineapple, pumpkin and papaya enzymes gently exfoliate without over-drying, leaving skin feeling soft and moisturised.

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, €63
There’s no excuse to look like the walking dead with this enzyme mask. With a three-pronged attack, this pumpkin mask eliminates pore-clogging surface debris and targets congestion, meaning you’ll be one step closer to smoother, younger looking skin so you lay of the incantations for another year.

The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Whipped Body Butter, €20.95
Like sugar, spice and all things nice, I’m not sure whether I want to rub this whipped butter all over my body or just dig in and eat it with a spoon.
Feather-light and fluffy, it leaves your skin fragranced with warm, sweet baked pumpkin and notes of caramel, maple syrup and almond milk. This seasonal limited-edition collection sells out like hot cakes so go, go, go.

Apivita Express Beauty Pumpkin Face Mask, €3.60
If your skin is looking ghostly, fear not, you can bring it back to life this Halloween with this detox face mask.
With pumpkin enzymes and lemon and ginger essential oils, this cult mask wipes away environmental impurities and dead cells, while white clay absorbs excess sebum.

An Chailleach Ghlas Hocus Pocus Halloween Candle, €10
A fun handmade and holistic all-natural candle with a Halloween theme — perfect for gifting or for cosy evenings in by the cauldron, I mean fire. A spook-tacular seasonal scent with a blend of cassia, clove, maple, bourbon, pumpkin and vanilla, it’s hand-poured with a natural soy wax and 100pc Irish. Available from wicklowmarketplace.ie
