A Multitasking SPF
Now available in Canada, Supergoop! Glowscreen offers all the benefits of a broad spectrum SPF while functioning as a skin-illuminating primer. The pearlescent formula imparts a radiant sheen while hyaluronic acid, cocoa peptides and vitamin b3 (also known as niacinamide) hydrate, protect and repair the skin.
A Restorative Face Oil
Step up your face oil game with the new goop GOOPGENES All-In-One Super Nutrient Face Oil. It’s made up of a blend of sumptuous plant-derived oils, all prized for their ability to deeply nourish the skin. Star ingredients include vitamin C-rich amla extract, skin-smoothing cacay oil and bakuchiol, a retinol alternative that’s great for sensitive types.
An Energizing Body Collection
Fend off winter flakiness with L’Occitane’s limited-edition Invigorating Scent Collection, which features four of the brand’s classic shea-infused skin-softeners in a cheery citrus scent. Lather up with the Shower Body Cream followed by the Ultra Light Body Cream for a truly indulgent shower experience.
From $12. Loccitane.com
A Line-Diminishing Eye Stick
Curious about retinol but fear its drying effects? Give Peace Out Retinol Eye Stick a whirl. The compact serum-balm formula contains encapsulated retinol which slowly releases over time and reduces irritation. This unique delivery method also limits exposure to light and air, keeping it fresher (and more effective) for longer. Pro tip: apply onto lids and lips for extra protection against fine lines and droopy skin.
A Firming Body Collection
Purported to visibly firm and smooth slackened skin, thanks to its blend of skin-stimulating caffeine, tiger grass and boldo extracts, Susanne Kaufmann Toning Body Serum and Cream is a treat for the body and a luxurious (and fabulously extra) way to kick your body-toning goals into high gear.
From $105. Susannekaufmann.com
A Pore-Refining Cleanser
Improve skin clarity and defend against dullness caused by pollution with Fresh Kombucha Cleansing Treatment. This no-rinse (!) cleanser is loaded with a blend of skin-fortifying prebiotics, antioxidant-rich kombucha and soapberry extract – a plant-derived cleansing agent – to maintain the delicate balance of the skin barrier.
A Resurfacing Serum
Work on your glow while you snooze with Holifrog Halo AHA + BHA Evening Serum. Its potent yet gentle blend of exfoliating acids targets congestion and sloughs off dead skin cells to give your complexion a total overhaul. It also includes retinol-alternative moth bean extract to boost collagen levels and anti-inflammatory ingredients like tamanu oil and aloe leaf juice to soothe and calm the skin.
A Sensorial Cleansing Routine
Inspired by ingredients grown naturally in the Alps, Clarins Expert Cleansers with Alpine herbs & Toning Lotions are bursting with gentle plant extracts – chamomile, meadowsweet and saffron flowers to name a few – that cleanse and refresh the skin while protecting the microbiome.
From $38. Clarins.ca
An Elevated Fragrance
Inspired by shooting stars, the latest fragrance from Louis Vuitton is a balm for dreary winter days. Étoile Filante features notes of fresh osmanthus blooms, juicy apricot, ripe strawberries and a soft hint of jasmine. One whiff and you’ll be mentally transported to the sunny hills of Grasse, on the French Riviera.
A 360° Eye Cream
The peptide-packed formula in Algenist’s Triple Algae Renewal Balm brightens, soothes and hydrates the entire eye area from the undereye to the brow bone. It contains the brand’s patented alguronic acid along with a hefty dose of brown, red and green algae to act as a barrier against environmental stressors and encourage an awakened, refreshed appearance.
A Dry Skin Saviour
Put an end to red, itchy skin with the new MED collection by Dr.Hauschka. Made with extreme dry skin types in mind, the collection is infused with ultra-soothing ingredients like potentilla and ice plant extract that act as a nourishing cocoon for the skin.
From $22. Drhauschka.ca
A Three-in-One Complexion Booster
Jouviance Duo Pro is a unique serum-cream combo that works to increase elasticity and firm skin with a cocktail of ceramides and peptides, targeting fine lines and signs of dehydration. It’s also fast-absorbing, making it a no-brainer for those seeking a fuss-free skincare routine.
A Moisture-Locking Lotion
Keep hydration levels in check with StriVectin Wrinkle Recode Moisture Rich Barrier Cream. It relies on a precise blend of ceramides and fatty acids to reduce trans-epidermal water loss in the skin, keeping it supple and bouncy from day to night.
An Instant Hair Remover
For those who crave painless hair removal for quick touch-ups, the Finishing Touch Flawless Nu Razor is the ideal solution. Its pivoted head reaches every nook with ease and works well on sensitive areas.
