Who says that trick or treaters get to have all the fun on Halloween? Staying at home and manning the candy station, can be equally enjoyable for grownups and kids! In fact, we think that curling up by the fire and watching spooky movies can be even better than going door to door, begging for candy. (Then again, we're slightly jaded and not five years old.)

Still, once the trick or treating fun is over you still have the rest of the night to enjoy together. Take off those costumes, put on the popcorn, cue up Netflix; we have a few ways to make it extra awesome this Oct. 31.

Our favorite suggestion? A spooktacular spa night!


Plan a Halloween Spa-Night

Step 1: Put on Your Face Mask

Who needs a full costume when you can rock these hilarious (and effective) at-home sheet facial masks from Shining Nature Purity. Meant to look like lions and tiger and bears (oh my!), they offer youthful benefits with a dose of humor. Plus, can you imagine the looks on your tricker or treaters faces when they see you rockin' one of these puppies (or kittens or lions or koalas!).

Nicole's girls recently tried out a few of these awesome SNP masks, and they were pretty pampering and sorta silly! Get the pack of 4 on Amazon here.


The Panda Mask brightens and energizes the complexion with coconut water, paper mulberry, bark extract ad niacinamide. It replenishes moisture and infuses the skin with essential electrolytes and potassium.

The Tiger Mask combats wrinkles and boosts dulling skin cells with elastic energy. Coconut water, evening primrose oil, acai berry extract. and the key wrinkle-improving ingredient, adenosine, give the complexion a resilient energy to make it look firmer and more lustrous.
