A gentle exfoliator
We all know exfoliation is the key to smoother skin, but that overdoing it can lead to sensitization or irritation. But what if you found an exfoliator that was gentle enough for daily use, leaving you with only the best results and none of the concern? Meet Dermalogica’s Daily Milkfoliant, a powder exfoliant that combines AHAs and BHAs to remove dead skin cells. Infused with barrier-supporting hyaluronic acid, soothing oat bran extract and nourishing coconut milk, the powder lathers into a creamy foam when mixed with water, while also looking after your overall skin health.
A cherry treat
Say hello to perpetually hydrated, smooth and glossy lips thanks to the new Fenty Skin Cherry Treat Conditioning + Strengthening Lip Oil. Made with fatty acid-rich sweet cherry seed oil, renewing Barbados cherry and wild cherry extracts and soothing jojoba seed and rosehip fruit oils, the clear, non-sticky product quickly nourishes your lips’ moisture berry. Pucker up.
A covetable SPF
Another one of Supergooop!’s cult-fave products has made its way over the border. This time, its the Mineral Mattescreen SPF 40, an oil-free mineral sunscreen that mattifies skin and reduces the appearance of pores, making it ideal to use as a primer as well. The velvety cream is also formulated with blue light-targeting Wild Butterfly Ginger and antioxidant-rich bamboo extract, which protects against free-radical damage.
For nourished curls
Make sure your curls are getting the TLC they need with L’Oréal Professionnel’s Series Expert Curl Expression range. Made for all types of curls, the eight-product line ains to moisturize and strengthen your strands while reinvigorating their bounce. Choose from an intensely moisturizing shampoo, anti-buildup jelly shampoo, two treatment masks, a long-lasting leave-in moisturizer, a cream-in-jelly activator, curl reviver spray and a multi-benefit mousse.
Price: from $32
For tired skin
Your eyes likely aren’t the only part of your face that looks tired. That’s why Peter Thomas Roth’s latest product, FIRMx Collagen Face & Eye Hydra-Gel Patches, are designed to be applied under your eyes and other areas—think your forehead and lip lines—that you might want to give a little more attention to. The patches are saturated with seven types of collagen and collagen-boosting ingredients to target dryness, fine lines and help skin look firmer and plumper. They’ll become a staple in your routine in no time.
For full lashes
When the team at Lancôme started working on their new mascara, they knew they wanted to take it to the next level, one that would appeal to both mascara users and non-users alike. Enter Le 8 Hypnôse, a serum-infused mascara that amps up the volume of lashes while using ingredients like amino acids (the product gets its name from the eight different types used in the formula), caring black balm and shea butter to condition and care for them simultaneously. Available in a striking black shade, it’s also long-lasting and gentle on sensitive eyes, too.
For a sunny glow
Luminous skin is within reach courtesy of Beautycounter’s new All Bright Triple Acid AHA Toner. Part of the brand’s newly formed All Bright line (which includes established bestsellers like the Brightening Facial Oil), the toner is formulated with dark-spot reducing niacinamide and salicylic acid, a blend of exfoliating glycolic and lactic acids and radiance-boosting kombucha to purify, resurface and minimize the look of pores while leaving behind a summer-ready glow.
For on-the-go chilling
Take your fave aromatherapy essentials with you wherever you are thanks to Saje’s limited-edition Aroma Wander. Cordless and car-friendly (it’s perfect for long drives to the cottage), the essential-oil diffuser runs on up to six hours of battery before it needs to be charged with its USB-compatible cable. Alongside the launch, the Canadian brand debuted three summer-inspired essential oil blends: refreshing Lime Sparkler, floral Magnolia Dew and earthy Neroli nights.
A multi-tasking leave-in
A detangling spritz that hydrates hair without weighing it down? It sounds too good to be true—but not with the JVN Complete Leave-In Conditioning Mist. With ingredients like strengthening squalene, moisturizing tremella mushroom extract (which holds 500 times its weight in water, btw) and conditioning brassica seed, the spray also refreshes strands, adds shine and offers heat protection in a cozy fragrance of amber, cashmere musk, lemon and mandarin. In Jonathan Van Ness we trust.
For going full glam
Your dream falsies are just two steps away. NYX Professional Makeup’s Jumbo Lash! Lash System! is a new range of false, lightweight lashes with invisible bands. Simply use the 2-in-1 Jumbo Lash Liner & Lash Adhesive (which also happens to be waterproof and smudge- and transfer-resistant) on your lash line before adding one of the four lash sets (looks range from wispy to all-out glam). Bonus: the lashes can wear for up to 12 hours, and can be used up to 15 times before you need a new pair.
Price: from $15
A luxe balm
Growing up, Gisou Beauty founder Negin Mirsalehi’s mom always used Mirsalehi honey directly from their family bee garden to treat cuts, scrapes and dry skin—which is why she built her entire brand around that one ingredient. Its latest product, The Honey Infused Beauty Balm, is no exception: honey blends with a high concentration of botanicals from the garden to soften and smooth skin. Apply it on dry or chapped patches for relief, or dab it onto the high points of your face for a subtle glow. You can even use a small amount to shape your brows or hold down flyaways.
For full-body care
Often neglect your entire body when it comes to your skincare routine? Never again with Fresh’s new Milk Body collection. Made with soothing plant-based milks, the range contains three products for all your shoulder-to-toe needs: a creamy, non-stripping body cleanser, an ultra-nourishing body lotion and a quick hydrating hand cream. Bye-bye, dry skin.
Price: from $25
SPF for acne-prone skin
Trying an SPF that breaks you out is a major frustration for any skincare lover. You won’t have to worry about that with Starface’s Clear as Day Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 46. The clear gel formula (no white cast here!) is fragrance- and oil-free and suitable for all skin types, but especially those who are acne-prone. Apart from offering water-resistant UVA/UVB protection, it also is formulated with ingredients that will moisturize, smooth skin and minimize the look of uneven texture. It will make a very welcome addition to your beach bag.
For fighting frizz
Summer humidity probably means frizzier-than-usual hair. This season, try Biolage’s Ultra Hydrasource line, which features two brand-new products specifically meant to target frizz. First is the Daily Leave-In Cream, which contains cupuaçu butter to penetrate the deepest fibres of very dry hair, resulting in up to 72 hours of moisture retention. There’s also the Deep Treatment Pack, with natural emollients and glycerin, which promises intense levels of hydration for all hair textures.
Price: from $24
A super-functional toner
Pick up Charlotte Tilbury’s new Glow Toner to get the benefits of pore-refining niacinamide, skin-supporting peptides and an instant, hydrated glow. That may seem like a lot to package in one single bottle, but there’s more: Although the toner is acid-free, it contains a prickly pear cactus flower extract, which is said to encourage the skin’s natural exfoliation process, leaving skin feeling clearer and more radiant. Charlotte’s magic strikes again.
A starry relaunch
After first debuting back in 2019, Lady Gaga has relaunched her beauty brand, Haus Labs, at Sephora. The range is still as bold and eclectic as the superstar, but less focused on stage and red carpet makeup. Now, many of the products—like the PhD Hybrid Lip Oil and Hy-Power Pigment Paint, are also infused with well known skincare ingredients (think squalene, hyaluronic acid and more) to ensure they look, feel and perform great. A star has definitely been born.
Price: from $29
A feel-good bath bomb
Not only does this limited-edition Lush butterfly-shaped bath bomb—made with soothing rose and Sicilian lemon oils and softening cream of tartar—turn your tub into a stunning pool of swirling pinks and purple, it serves a higher purpose, too. One hundred percent of the sale price (minus the taxes) will go towards Pollinator Partnership and other organizations dedicated to protecting pollinator populations like bees, hummingbirds and butterflies that are essential for both Lush products and everyday life.
An acne-zapping serum
IT Cosmetics’ popular ByeBye line just got bigger. Developed alongside plastic surgeons and dermatologists, the Bye Bye Breakouts serum aims to reduce the onset of pimples in just three days and fade post-acne marks within a week thanks to a potent blend of salicylic and lactic acids. And yes, it’s even suitable for sensitive skin, too.
For quick hydration
Okay technically, Consonant Skin+Care’s Insta Spritz launched last month, but we’d be remiss not to mention it. The local brand’s device is a portable water micronizer, which can be used to refresh your skin at any time (like you’d use a traditional face mist), or to keep your face damp during your skincare routine. After it’s charged, fill up the water tank and add a few drops of your fave water-based serum—the micronized droplets will easily bind to your skin’s surface for a quick, plumping dose of hydration. You’ll never want to leave the house without it.
For dehydrated strands
Restoring squalene, plumping hyaluronic acid, nourishing blue/green algae and bio-fermented coconut water come together in Amika’s latest line, the Hydro Rush Intense Moisture Collection. Ideal for dry, coarse and textured hair, the range promises to deliver up to three times more hydration to your strands. Three products are currently available: a gentle yet effective shampoo, conditioner and a creamy leave-in conditioner.
