ELLE Canada’s beauty team on the 17 best products that came out in 2015

Zoya Naked Manicure Women’s Kit

"This is a genius set of treatment polishes that repair while masking damage. The best part is the magical topcoat which takes the shine out of the protective polish and makes it look like your nails are naturally flawless. If you’re transitioning from gel to natural nails this will change your life." – Vanessa Craft, beauty director   Zoya Naked Manicure Women’s Kit ($30) at select spas.

Guerlain Mon Exclusif Eau de Parfum

"This is the most wonderful blend of notes: toffee, sandalwood with a fresh fougere accord and a touch of lavender. It is untitled, so you can name it yourself with the stickers they provide. Every time we spray this in the office, the entire ELLE team is drawn like moths to a fragrant flame." – Vanessa Craft, beauty director Guerlain Mon Exclusif Eau de Parfum ($185 for 50 mL), at Guerlain boutiques.

Kérastase Paris Carré Lissant

"Fresh from a blowout there are always errant sticky uppy strays that wreck your hair game. Then Kérastase took a hairdresser insider secret (of rubbing a dryer sheet on hair to stop frizz) and elevated it to humidity blocking, static controlling and flyaway killing greatness." – Vanessa Craft, beauty director Kérastase Paris Carré Lissant ($35), at kerastase.ca.

Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask

"I slather this uber moisturizing mask on before flights. It's got all the good stuff I want – hyaluronic acid and almond oil (to hydrate), and licorice root (to brighten) – and fully absorbs into skin so you don't have to wash it off right away. This magical mask doesn't ship to Canada (yet), but when it does, I will be first in line for more." - Victoria DiPlacido, assistant beauty editor Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask ($30.72), at glossier.com.   READ MORE: 22 ELLE international editors reflect on 30 years of beauty
