7 Tried-And-True Products I Am Obsessed With This Fall

I have been testing a lot of new products over the few weeks and as much as I'd like to, it is impossible for me to write about every single one of them. Instead, I thought I'd share with you 7 tried-and-true products that I am obsessing over this fall.

1. In Fiore TREATE Cleansing Emulsion ($70.00 for 4.2 oz / 125 ml)
I had my first taste of In Fiore thanks to Beauty Heroes last October, and I loved it so much I am on my second bottle. It is important to switch to a creamier cleanser that will add moisture and protect your skin as you cleanse, and this scrumptious product contains aloe leaf juice, rose hydrosol and safflower and sesame oils infused with an heavenly bouquet of jasmine blossoms, echinacea, dandelion and burdock root. I massage this onto dry skin to dissolve my makeup and add water and massage for another couple of minutes before washing it off, and it gives a thorough cleanse without stripping my skin dry. The fragrance will also bring your self-care routine to new heights.
2. Pratima Sandalwood Rose Mask ($48.00 for 2 oz / 60 ml)
This nutrient-rick herbal mask contains just 5 ingredients, with a combination of pure sandalwood mud, turmeric, ocean mud, manjistha (an ayurverdic tonic herb) and distilled rose petals to purify, exfoliate, calm and balance all complexions. Perfume has gotten a dirty rep in the green beauty world, but there is no better way to describe the intoxicating scent that will envelope and comfort you after a long and stressful day. I apply a thin layer and leave it on until it starts to dry and my skin is smooth and radiant afterwards.
The rich, velvety nectar is the answer to all your eye concerns, promising to lighten dark circles, reduce inflammation and reduce signs of aging while fighting free radical damage and protecting the delicate area around your eyes in just a single drop under and around both eyes. The base is the exotic Peruvian Sacha Inchi oil rich in fatty acids and includes a medley of antioxidant-rich Coffee fruit, carotene-rich Seabuckthorn berries and beloved Evening Primrose oil. But what really won me over was the warm, heady blend of sweet Tonka and Cacao beans with roasted Venezuelan Coffee beans, making this the most divine eye treatment ever.
Found in August's Art of Organics box, this gorgeous amethyst jar of liquid honey performs double duty as a luminizing cleanser and luxurious spa treatment. The silky mélange of raw Hawaiian rainforest honey, Amazonian white clay and maracuja oil, rosehip seed oil and raw cacao with an aromatic blend of pink grapefruit and neroli will leave your skin plump and rejuvenated. I massage a small dollop onto damp skin in the morning for a nourishing skin treat or leave it on for upwards of 30 minutes as an intensive face mask.
5. Cocokind Organic Full Brow Balm ($13.99 for 2 oz)
This brow balm may have a simple ingredient list but it's anything but basic, delivering key nutrients and antioxidants to your hair follicles to promote full and healthy brows a la Cara Delevingne. If you have naturally thick brows, this tinted product works as a daytime styling tool to give them more definition, but if your brows are sparse like mine, it can be used as a night treatment to nourish the scalp and encourage hair growth. I have also been using this as an eye makeup remover- I warm a little product between my fingers and massage it onto my eyes and wipe it off with a cotton round, and it removes every last bit of eye makeup. 
This came in a special pre-W.E.L.L Summit package and is exactly what you would expect a coffee scrub to smell like. MmmmmHand-crafted in small batches from 100% organic and Fair Trade Certified Sugar & Coffee, this body scrub also features a blend of almond and sunflower oils to exfoliate the dirt and dead skin off your skin while the residual oils will soothe and protect your skin, obliterating the need for a separate body oil or lotion. The only downside is the cleanup required, but the results are well worth it.
7. Woodlot Candle in Original ($36.00 for 13.5 oz)
This petroleum-free, GMO-free and phthalate-free candle with cotton core wicks offer clean, soot-free burning and is lovingly hand-poured with renewable coconut wax. The earthy, harmonious scent comes from a blend of fir, cedar, pine, eucalyptus, vanilla and sweet orange essential oils and is meant to replicate the feeling of "a walk in the woods with your love", ideal for those long, autumn evenings with a warm cup of tea in your hand. It comes in a beautiful, recyclable jar and burns for up to 60 hours.
