November Health and Beauty Favorites + Giveaway 5 (CLOSED)

Hello friends! Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing some of my health and beauty favorites last month, November. Let me share with you my faves here on the blog. PLUS, today’s giveaway will include one of my FAVORITES. I’m so excited and happy for the winner because this product is REALLY THAT GOOD! Pinky swear.

November Health and Beauty Favorites

Note that this November health and beauty favorites don’t include makeup because that should be for another post. This makeup junkie has a lot of faves that need a post of its own. So, let’s start with the health-related faves first.

OLLY Vitamins


I received these vitamins c/o OLLY a couple of weeks ago. These are wellness boosts in gummy form. I’ve been loving how they taste. So delicious! I take the BEAUTY one during the day, and the SLEEP at night. It’s true when they say that beauty comes from within. Before you do that contour or eyebrow, make sure your health is in check first. The BEAUTY supplement is for healthy hair, bright eyes, and dewy skin. The SLEEP one calms your body and mind, and boost your body’s natural sleep hormone. While you can purchase these online, you can also get them at retailers like Target. There are many other wellness boosts, vitamins, and smoothies too.

BOIRON Arnicare Gel and Calendula Cream


So why am I including first aid and pain relief products in here? Similar to what I mentioned earlier, beauty starts from within. If you’re in pain, it definitely shows. I know that when I have painful periods, I hardly have the time to brush my hair or even change from my pajamas. So glad I was introduced to Boiron Arnicare Gel last summer at a blog conference in New York. I was skeptic at first, knowing this was homeopathic medicine. I thought it won’t be able to help relieve my pain. BUT… when I tried it out, I was surprised it actually works. Plus, it’s Paraben-free, and has no artificial additives and preservatives.

HASK Chia Seed Oil Shampoo and Conditioner


I’ve been regularly using HASK Beauty shampoo, conditioner, oil, and masks for quite sometime now… perhaps years. I love that they are simple and don’t have the bad chemicals in them. They’re good to my hair and they smell great too. So when I received this Chia Seed Oil last month, I was excited. I know Chia Seed is a superfood and I actually use it on my oatmeal and cereal. It’s fortified with proteins, antioxidants, calcium, and nutrients like omega 3. So HASK adding it to their hair care was genius. It helps boost shine, increase volume, and lock-in moisture without weighing hair down. I recently tried a shampoo and conditioner combo that weighed my hair down despite moisturizing it. So I stopped using it and moved on to this. Wanna try it out? They’re available at most groceries and/or retailers like Target and Walmart.






This exfoliating facial treatment is such a treat to use. It smoothens the face and gives you that glow. It’s also a peach fuzz removal device for women and I love that. I’ve been trying it for the past week or so and I am loving the results. It’s also said to help uneven skin tone. So I’ll see how it goes after a couple of weeks of use. It comes with a cleanser or a “Prep” to wash your face with before you use the device. Then it comes with the “Edge” which are like cartridges to load the device with. Finally, there’s there “Soothe” which is a soothing cream to use after.


So if you need a solution for hair removal, dullness and uneven texture, and uneven skin tone, I recommend DermaFlash. You can get this for a little under $200 at Sephora. I know it’s a little pricey, but it’s professional quality exfoliation and hair removal device that’s totally worth it. I’m pretty happy with the product. Thanks to DermaFlash and Influenster for sending this! I’m sharing a video of how I’m using it below.


IT Cosmetics Brush Sets


Now, how many times have I told you that IT Cosmetics brushes are the best? Okay, it’s not like I’ve tried a million types of brushes. But let me tell you, out of all the makeup brushes I’ve tried in my entire life, these are my favorites. That’s saying a lot! Plus, when they release a brush set, it’s always just so fabulous. Just look at this City Chic brush set. How gorgeous is this?


What’s not to love? Just look at the rose gold color that has that ombre effect towards the tip of the brush going clear at the end. The brushes are so soft and fluffy too. While they aren’t as dense as my other IT Cosmetics brushes, they still do their job pretty well. And who doesn’t want a super soft and airy brush touching their face? They are available at Ulta Beauty.


Oh, and by the way, I love the matching case and the fact that the brushes are labeled. This is perfect when you’re new to makeup, or if you’re in a rush and can’t find a thing. The labels will help and guide you with your makeup application.


Now another makeup brush set from IT Cosmetics that I SUPER LOVE is this All That Glitters set. Let’s just say I’m saving it for my Christmas birthday and New Year. Hahaha. I didn’t want to remove the plastic that they came in at first, because I just want to preserve their beauty forever. OMG. Anyone like that at all?
