Pumpkin Sweets

This week I received a care package from a friend. It was full of Halloween themed & colored sweet stuff. Pumpkin Tart cookies from Country Ma’am, Lavender Tea Latte from Maxim, and Pumpkin Pudding Kit-Kats.

The cookies are a mix bag of vanilla chocolate chip and the pumpkin tart. Country Ma’am cookies are one of my all time favorite cookie brands. The vanilla is one of their staples but this was the first time I got to try the pumpkin. Quite good. Extra sweet and a bit rich. I heated them up for a few seconds so they seemed especially creamy.

The pumpkin pudding kit-kats were good as well. More mild in taste than the Country Ma’am pumpkin tart. These had a light sweet flavor.

I haven’t tried the lavender tea latte stick yet. It’s supposed to have a lavender and bergamot taste. I like a lot of bergamot flavored things so I have high hopes here!

Etude House Sweet Pumpkin

I thought this would be the perfect time to review a pumpkin mask! I tried Etude House’s It’s Real Sweet Pumpkin Mask courtesy of Yesstyle. (link)

The Sweet Pumpkin mask focuses on elasticity and moisture using real pumpkin extracts. It’s Paraben-free, color-free, talc-free, mineral oil-free.

Reduced puffiness even the next morning after use
Very moisturizing
No breakouts :)

Mask is a little stiff due to its thickness

I don’t think I have used an Etude House mask until now. I’ve been feeling more adventurous with my skin lately because it’s been staying clear. I’d like to try more Etude House treatments after this one turned out so nicely.
