Fab Finds: Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere!

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 schizophrenic Carolina weather.

Philosophy’s Pumpkin Spice Muffin shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath ($16; Nordstrom, Sephora) is multi-tasking 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; select retail locations) 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.

Halloween Contest: Send us a picture of your best fashion-related costume from the past and your name will be entered in a drawing for a giveaway: Philosophy’s Haunted House, featuring a trio of mini bath products.

E-mail the photo along with your name, phone number and the details of the photo you’ve sent (year it was taken, whom you’re portraying) to Deadline for entry is Oct. 16. Entries will be considered for publication in an upcoming Style section.

And maybe, I'll share pics of one the numerous Madonna looks I pulled off back in the day.
