If you want the deliciousness of a pumpkin pie without the calories, dig into these products. They're sure to trigger cozy fall-ish feelings despite the typically unpredictable Carolina weather right now.
Philosophy's Pumpkin Spice Muffin shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath ($16, Nordstrom SouthPark, 704-442-6000; Sephora Northlake, 704-494-0380) is multitasking comfort food in a bottle. The high-foaming soap has a scent that is more spice (cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg) than pumpkin, but doesn't linger too strongly outside the shower.
Desert Essence Organics Pumpkin Hand Repair Cream ($8.99; www.desertessence.com) contains organic pumpkin seed oil, which has high levels of vitamins A, C, E, K and zinc. The sweetly scented lotion absorbs quickly, and doesn't leave hands greasy. It's a great overnight treat for hands and feet.
