Though we are mere days into November, it already seems like October was years ago. Thankfully, I can still remember the amazing beauty products I tried throughout the month, many of which quickly found spots in my beauty stash.

From a new facial cleanser and ultra-pigmented lipsticks to a holiday gift set that I will absolutely be buying for my friends, the best beauty items from October are budget-friendly and worthy of all your coins.

As a beauty editor, it’s my job to know what’s out on the market and what’s new with brands. That said, I rounded up some of the best beauty products I tried in the month of October, spilling info on why I loved them.

Shop: Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin High Coverage Multi-Use Concealer, $27

Why I loved it: Although I can’t attest to its promise of 24-hour coverage, this waterproof concealer was pretty transfer-proof, providing a full-coverage natural-matte finish.

Shop: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist, $23

Why I loved it: I’m more of a matte lipstick type of girl, but this lipstick promises a satin finish and provided intense lip hydration all day. Totally a win!

Shop: Sephora Collection Facial Razor, $16

Why I loved it: I started dermaplaning a little over a year ago, and I haven’t turned back since. This sleek metal razor not only has high-quality blades that seamlessly remove facial hair and dead skin cells, but it’s extremely affordable.

Shop: Foreo Bear Mini Facial Toning Device, $199

Why I loved it: OK, this little baby is expensive, but hear me out. This FDA-cleared device combines powerful microcurrent and T-Sonic pulsations to tone and contour skin‘s appearance. When I use this at night, I wake up the next morning and immediately see results. It’s a splurge, but she is worth it!

Shop: Crabtree & Evelyn Coconut And Sandalwood Body Balm, $30

Why I loved it: If there was a body balm that encapsulates what I want my life to smell like, it’s this balm. Inspired by the traditional ceremony of Galungan, this balm is so nourishing and buttery that it melts into my skin. Plus, it smells like smokey coconut, which I never knew I loved until this moment.

Shop: L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 3.5% Pure Glycolic Cleansing Gel, $12.99

Why I loved it: This cleanser is very soothing to the skin, even though glycolic acid is a main active ingredient. This product is safe for everyday use, and it does resurface the skin to make it appear smoother and brighter.

Shop: Kiehl’s Since 1851 Brighten Up And Glow Set, $99

Why I loved it: Other than the fact this is a set of best sellers (which includes two full sizes), there’s no denying that a great Kiehl’s product can change your life (and your skin).
