A Brightening Body Butter
Purported to keep skin supple for up to 72 hours and the only thing Gwyneth Paltrow wore to ring in her birthday, Goopgenes Nourishing Repair Body Butter ($75) is the latest go-to body butter for radiant skin. It’s made with a trio of conditioning butters – bacuri, cupuaçu, and shea – along with AHA-rich caviar lime extract and a mulberry complex to gently exfoliate skin and encourage speedy cell turnover.
A Juicy Serum
Plum is the star ingredient of this hydration-boosting serum from Glow Recipe. The cheeky name (try saying plum plump 5 times fast) is a nod to the three different varieties of vitamin C-rich plum – kakadu, illawarra, and burdekin – present in the formula. It also contains multi-weight hyaluronic acid to penetrate the skin deeply and effectively, creating that coveted glossy skin effect. Plus, we can’t get enough of the adorable spherical packaging reminiscent of the fruit. Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($55)
An Organic Upgrade
Say hello to French skincare brand Nuxe‘s latest product extension. The 7-product lineup is developed with a range of botanical ingredients like moringa, buckwheat and marine seaweed – all 100% certified organic. We love the protective Chia Seeds Essential Antioxidant Serum ($55), which contains fermented cells of the small but mighty chia seed to guard the skin against pollution.
A Cinnamon-Powered Plumper
Remember the days of old-school plumpers that would leave your lips stinging raw for hours? Thankfully, these days there’s no need to suffer to get the puffed-up look. Bite Beauty Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss ($25) relies on cinnamon oil to deliver an immediate plumping effect, while sodium hyaluronate keeps lips soft and shiny. Just pick your favourite shade, twist the cap and glide it on.
A Two-in-One Concealer
Skincare meets makeup with Nudestix Nudefix Concealer ($34). Available in 13 shades, this long-wear concealer melts into skin seamlessly and contains microbiome-balancing arctium lappa root extract, anti-inflammatory sweet berry extract, and protective zinc oxide – to reduce blue light damage caused by an overdose on screen time.
A Debut Makeup Collection
Mario Dedivanovic is no stranger to the makeup world. Known for painting the faces of stars like Kim K and Ariana Grande and having a massive Instagram presence, it’s no surprise that his debut makeup collection comes highly anticipated. Priced between $18-$64, Sephora-exclusive Makeup by Mario marks Dedivanovic’s 20th year of working as a makeup artist and showcases his penchant for creamy textures, punchy metallic hues and reflective tones. Looks like Insta-makeup is all grown up and here to stay.
A Breezy Scent
Part Frozen lime, sea salt, cypress and birch give this lavender-drenched juice a crisp effervescence that complements the brilliance of sunny winter mornings. Bastide Lavande in Love Eau de Toilette ($165)
A Cozy Eye Mask
Give those strained eyes a break (and if your eyes aren’t strained, tell us your secrets!) with this five-pack of self-heating eye masks. Spacemasks Self Heating Eye Masks ($30) contain a later layer of iron filling that activate with the oxygen in the air to gently warm up. That, combined with an infusion of jasmine oil, is bound to lull you to bliss in no time.
A Plush Moisturizer
Now that we’ve said goodbye to sweltering temperatures, it’s time to swap out our lightweight moisturizers for something a little more…substantial. Farmacy Honey Halo Ultra-Hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer ($59) is luxuriously thick and formulated with ceramides and royal jelly to protect the skin’s moisture barrier from the desiccating effects of rapidly shifting temperatures.
A Clarifying Treatment
Show your scalp some love and incorporate Nioxin Scalp Recovery Purifying Exfoliator ($24) into your shower rotation. This exfoliation treatment contains biodegradable cellulose microbeads to reduce flakiness and build-up on the scalp, while mint creates a refreshing cooling sensation for that ultimate clean feeling.
A Recipe For Great Hair
Breathe new life into dull, flat hair with the latest additions to the Moroccanoil lineup. All In One Leave In Conditioner ($32) and Volumizing Mist ($32) add magnificent bounce and a boost of moisture to the hair without weighing it down.
A Superfood-Fueled Serum
This organic water-gel serum tones and soothes skin with the help of a triple mushroom complex and maple sugar extract, which are sustainably sourced and hand-harvested from a 40-acre forest outside of Toronto. Frwrd Skincare The Mushroom Super Serum ($117)
A Canadian-Made Skincare Collection
Fragrance-free, vegan and made-in-Canada, Cake Beauty has just released their first skincare collection and the products are as adorable as adorable can get. From the blemish-busting Microneedle Spot Dots($15) to the 3-minute exfoliating Baby Skin Bubble Facial ($18), these budget-friendly cuties are gentle on the skin make a great skincare starter-pack for teens.
A Thoughtful Gift Box
As frequent hand-washing continues to be of utmost importance, Lush Clean & Sweet Handcare Kit ($33) makes a perfect gift for anyone on your holiday list. This sweet-smelling kit contains everything needed to swaddle hands in moisture: hydrating soaps, skin-softening lotions and an adorable hand-shaped serum bar. What’s not to love?
A Hydrating Duo
New to the Bioderma fam, Atoderm Intensive Eye ($25) is a cross between a moisturizer and a makeup remover. Massage into the eye are and wipe away to remove residual makeup or dot it on for instant relief from dry lids. To soothe chapped lips, the shea and avocado oil-packed Restorative Lip Balm ($10) comes in clutch.
A Transitional Cleanser
You may have swapped your summer moisturizer out for something more nourishing, but what about your cleanser? Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Cream Cleanser ($20) contains hyaluronic acid along with papaya enzymes and hibiscus flower to moisturize and exfoliate the skin, while lathering up generously with no greasy residue.
A Very Fancy Serum
In celebration of the Icelandic brand’s 10-year anniversary, Bioeffect has launched a limited-edition version of their award-winning EGF Serum ($680). The star ingredient, epidermal growth factor – a collagen-and-elastin-boosting protein derived from black barley grown in volcanic pumice – inspired the design of the conversation-starting vessel designed by Icelandic artist Shoplifter.
A Plant-Based Hair Oil
A little goes a long way with Dr. Hauschka Hair Oil ($35), which relies on botanical ingredients neem, chamomile, wheat germ oil and rosemary to soothe dry scalp and seal split ends.
A Refreshing Mist
For a post-workout pick-me-up, a spritz of Lululemon Super Fine Face Mist ($28) refreshes and replenishes moisture-depleted skin. The lightweight formula includes mattifying activated charcoal, so your flushed face will read “refreshed” and less “sweaty mess”.
An Autumnal Eye Palette
This limited edition palette from Nars features 12 creamy shades in ultra-matte and sparkling finishes. From pitch-black “Uncensored Black” to “Private Eye”, a deep, shimmering merlot, it’s all you need to create the most dramatic fall eye looks. Nars Extreme Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($74)
