When it comes to beauty products it can be a very overwhelming experience. Even just walking through the beauty boutiques at Shoppers Drug Mart, or walking past and seeing the people inside Sephora is enough to make you shop online and pay the shipping. That’s why I’ve created a list of a few personal favourite products that are a must for anyone. And I really do mean anyone, as these products listed below are essential to making life easier for absolutely everyone no matter how much of a beauty expert you are.
In three different formulas based off your skin type, this one-step cleanser or no-rinse micellar cleansing water is the ultimate quick and easy way to get a fresh rinse for your skin. There are many types out there to choose from as these one step cleansing waters have become a trend in the skin care world, and as much as they may not be for everybody, I am a big personal fan. Especially when travelling or on the go, with no water needed I know I am still getting a good clean for my skin and the Clarins one in particular has a refreshing scent so you don’t smell like a cleanser. These work with make-up as well! We’ve all been there, the lazy nights where you just want to crawl into bed, I know I can go to bed confidently after using this and not wake-up with imperfections the next day.
Dry shampoos are so last year. But as much we all can’t live without them now, this Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder is a game changer when it comes to your hair. A powder designed for all hair types and colours, mixes the perks of a dry shampoo with the benefits of volumizer and style extender. This powder goes on nearly invisible, which is one of the biggest differences compared to dry shampoos that usually leave a residue. By absorbing oil and giving hair a volume boost, this powder is ideal for when you skip a wash to extend the life of your fresh do.
Rodan + Fields is brand new to Canada, and I’ve been lucky enough to use a few of their products. Based off of the dermatologists who created Proactive, Rodan + Fields is sweeping the US beauty market. So if I told you they came up with a product that is not only ideal for taking off your makeup but also has anti-age ingredients would you believe me? Because you should. That’s right, we’ve all seen the makeup dissolving wipes before as they’ve become a staple for makeup removal, but having a cloth that not only gets rid of all types of eye makeup but also fights the signs of aging at the same time. Each cloth contains unique blend of peptides that reduces the appearance of lines and puffiness. Who doesn’t want that all in one easy step?
Looking for a healthy glow on the go? BB creams are ideal for those days you don’t want to wear a full foundation but are still looking for something to even out your skin tone. The best part is their hydration ingredients keeping skin bright and protected all day. Because of the texture of a BB cream, there are limited shades and blending becomes quick and easy, making BB creams a go-to product to have in your make-up bag.
Now that the nicer weather is finally here, that means flat season is also here. Except for all of the new shoes I’ve recently purchased aren’t broken in yet causing blisters on every ankle and toe possible. And even when you try to go back to your go-to shoes, band-aids aren’t enough to fix the blisters that have already formed. So when I found out there’s an anti-blister stick, I was desperate to try anything to help get my feet ready for flat season. Dr. Scholl’s has a variety of products including what looks like a mini deodorant stick for your feet that helps prevent blisters. Now a staple in my purse, my feet are ready for any shoes this summer.
