Everything ELLE Canada's beauty team can't live without.
Tatcha The Silk Canvas primer
“When you ask a geisha to tell you the single most important thing about her skincare, she’ll always say it’s the bintsuke wax,” says Victoria Tsai, founder of the Japanese-beauty-inspired line Tatcha. “It keeps moisture in the skin and pollution and makeup out of pores.” Made with four types of silk proteins—which have a molecular composition similar to human skin—the new Tatcha The Silk Canvas primer ($62) provides the same benefits while intensifying any pigment you put on top of it (concealer, eyeshadow, what have you) without the heaviness of actual wax on your face. Win-win. - Victoria DiPlacido, Beauty Editor
Megababe Thigh Rescue Anti-Chafe Stick
Here’s a category for which there’s covert, pent-up demand: anti-chafing products. Case in point: When Megababe Thigh Rescue Anti-Chafe Stick ($25, at geebeauty.ca) launched last summer, it sold out within the week. The soothing aloe and pomegranate-seed-extract formula—now back in stock and available in Canada—isn’t sticky and comes in packaging that’s good-looking enough to display. - Victoria DiPlacido, Beauty Editor
