13 Things on Etsy You Need If You Love Halloween

Today I am presenting you with some awesome Halloween finds from Etsy. You can find so many awesome items on Etsy. Plus, they’re sold by ordinary people like you and me, or people trying to grow a business, as opposed to big-time companies, which is awesome. I always like supporting the little people. I am dying to have everything on this list!

Cool Halloween Finds

264

I am quite the homebody, so you rarely find me going to stores. I much prefer online shopping in the comfort of my own home. However, I got the urge to stop by Target on my way home yesterday just to see what Halloween stuff they had out. I ended up getting a Boo throw pillow for the couch and a Happy Halloween sign for on the wall. I also got a gray faux fur throw for my bed (although not exactly Halloween related, but I’ll include it at the end of the post). There were quite a few other things I wanted but just didn’t have the money to spend at the moment. Here are some of the cool things I came across while I was there.

Review: Hey Honey, A Brand I Love

195

I’m a huge fan of Hey Honey! Basically everything of theirs that I’ve tried so far I have loved. I definitely want to try some more of their products in the future. The only issue is that their products are kind of pricey, but you’re actually paying for quality. Here are some of my thoughts on the products I’ve tried so far.

Hands On: Honey and Propolis Hand Cream
I absolutely swear by this hand lotion! Ever since I first tried it, I don’t even use anything else. I was suffering from dry hands during the Winter. My skin was cracking leaving little painful cuts on my hands, and I also had these really rough patches of skin on my knuckles. I could tell a difference from the first time I used this, but within a few days my dry skin was completely cleared up! This lotion also smells like honeysuckles, which I absolutely love.

Walk the Walk: Propolis Foot Cream
I loved the hand cream so much that I thought I would try this foot cream as well. Unfortunately, I do not like this as much as the hand cream. That’s not to say it’s a bad product though. I could tell my feet were softer after using this, but it didn’t clear up the rough skin on my heel as much as I was hoping it would. Of course it’s probably hard for any product to clear that up completely since we’re always wearing shoes and walking on our feet. I love the smell of this cream as well (though I do think the hand cream smells better). This one smells like mint mixed with honey.

24Seven: Honey Day & Night Cream
This is one of my top two favorite moisturizers. It has anti-aging properties, and it’s good for wearing under makeup or at night before you go to bed. With this, a little really does go a long way. I only need a pea-sized amount to cover my whole face, and my face feels so soft, like silk, afterwards!

Take It Off: Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask
This isn’t my favorite Hey Honey mask or even one of my favorite face masks in general, but I do still like it. Like the other products, this too has a nice smell. I also love peel-off masks because they’re fun to peel off. Unlike charcoal masks, this doesn’t hurt at all to peel off. I also like that it doesn’t seem to dry my skin out. I don’t notice a huge difference in my skin when I use this though. I like to use this one to exfoliate and prep my skin before putting on another hydrating mask afterwards.

Uncover: Detoxifying Mud Mask
This is one of my favorite face masks I’ve ever used, and definitely my most favorite mud mask. I’ve never been particularly keen on mud masks because they always seem to dry out my skin. Not this one. I was so absolutely amazed at how soft and hydrated my skin felt using this. In fact, I don’t think my skin has ever felt so soft after using a face mask as it does when I use this product. I also love the gritty texture of the mask as well as the smell. Keep in mind, the smell of this mask isn’t for everyone and I can see how some might not like it. It has a very earthy scent to it, similar to dirt/mud. (Well duh, it is a mud mask). I personally like that though, since I love nature in general.

Good Morning: Honey Silk Facial Serum
This is a great serum to put on your face when you’re getting ready to head out for the day. It works as a moisturizer and primer both. Makeup seems to apply pretty well on top of it. I really like the silky texture this has, and it leaves my skin feeling silky as well. Just be careful to only use a little bit. (Again, a little bit goes a long way). If you use too much, you might find your skin is a little sticky.

After writing this post, I discovered that Ipsy is sending me the Hey Honey Propolis Cream Concealer in my glam bag this month, so I am excited to try yet another Hey Honey product. I’ll give my thoughts on that one in my October Glam Bag post coming later this month.
