ELLE Canada editors reveal their biggest beauty splurges

Beauty splurge: Oribe

"The beloved celebrity hair stylist completely rebooted the definition of luxury with the launch of this brand. The products are high performing with skin care like formulas and the packaging could moonlight as art. The signature fragrance was so sophisticated in its formulation – and beloved by clients – that Oribe recently launched a floral perfume based off the hair formula." —Vanessa Craft, beauty director Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo ($54), at beautymark.ca.

Beauty splurge: Tammy Fender

"It functions like natural polysporin on steroids, healing the most blistered acne marks and dry patches faster than you can find 7 different filters to hide the offending zit. Also I like the fact that I'm not blasting my face with chemicals when it's already stressed out. It's worth it, even though it costs me about $15 every time I use it." —Katherine Flemming, health & beauty editor Tammy Fender Intensive Repair Balm ($162), at tammyfender.com.

Beauty splurge: Tom Ford

“Money can’t buy what Tom Ford’s Wild Ginger does to a sad February pale face – it’s like six months in St Barts in a tube. When you factor in how long-lasting yet weirdly moisturizing the formula is, it’s actually basically a bargain." —Sarah Laing, associate editor Tom Ford Lip Color in Wild Ginger ($55), at holtrenfrew.com.

Beauty splurge: da lish

“I've learned that if there’s one thing to never scrimp on, it’s skincare. Seriously, no one wins. So to complement the morning and evening natural skin care routine that I’ve spent years cultivating, I keep my makeup bag equally clean and simple. It’s why indulging in this silky, matte yet lightweight foundation makes perfect sense to me.” —Ava Baccari, assistant editor da lish Silk to Matte Foundation ($40), at dalishcosmetics.com.

Beauty splurge: Renee Rouleau

“If possible, I would slather Renee Rouleau’s Triple Berry Smoothing Peel, a professional-strength brew of fruit AHAs, BHAs and enzymes, over my face, neck and hands every day – the smoothing and brightening powers are that real. But at 1.7oz for $108, this miracle in a jar is best applied once or twice a month, or before a big event.” —Victoria DiPlacido, assistant beauty editor Renee Rouleau’s Triple Berry Smoothing Peel ($108), at reneerouleau.com.

Beauty splurge: Moroccanoil

“I have thick hair that tends to feel like the bottom end of a dry broom if I don't give it a little TLC oil treatment on a regular basis. I know there are plenty of products on the market, but my go-to is Moroccanoil Oil Treatment. It's a bit of splurge at $49, but it also includes a travel sized bottle, which is important—especially after I've been on a plane. #moisturevampire.” —Noreen Flanagan, editor-in-chef Moroccanoil Treatment Home & Travel Duo ($49), at moroccanoil.com.

Beauty splurge: Marc Jacobs

“Whenever I get asked what my beauty splurge is, I seem to always give the same answer. I believe every man should have a “go-to” fragrance in his arsenal. For me, my favourite cologne would have to be Marc Jacobs’ Bang. I love this scent because it's by far the most unique scent I have come across, and for that it's worth the price tag.” —Reginald Leung, designer Bang by Marc Jacobs Eau de Toilette ($92 for 3.4 oz), at marcjacobs.com.

Beauty splurge: SkinCeuticals

"I'm pretty devoted to SkinCeuticals' C E Ferulic. When I first started using it, I got a lot of compliments on my skin, so I'm convinced it's doing something! It's pricey, but I'll pay through the nose for anything that will keep wrinkly, saggy skin at bay." —Ciara Rickard, production editor SkinCeuticals' C E Ferulic ($165), at skinceuticals.com.

Beauty splurge: Davines

“Ever since going back to blond, my beauty bank has been reserved for ultra-moisturizing masks and serums to nourish my stressed-out hair. Lately I’ve been loving the rich Minu conditioner from Italian line Davines. At upwards of $30 a bottle, it’s a bit indulgent for this former Pantene addict, but my hair has never looked, felt or smelled so delicious. It’s my small way of living la dolce vita." —Charlotte Herrold, associate fashion editor Davines MINU Conditioner ($36), at davines.com. READ MORE: 5 incredibly easy summer hairstyles
