One for All

Fenty Beauty’s foundation might be getting all the attention these days, but this low-key lip gloss is not one to be overlooked. In a gleaming, rose-tinted nude that flatters a wide range of skin tones, it’s the perfect tube to stash in your purse for quick, lip-conditioning touch-ups on the go.

Smooth Moves

Air-drying is a great way to save your strands during the warmer months, but with winter on the way, it’s hard to avoid the need for heat styling. On the plus side, with Moroccanoil’s new protection spray, you can shield your strands from damage without weighing them down. Better still, the argan oil–infused formula goes on dry, meaning it won’t leave a crunchy texture or cause any cringe-worthy sizzling sounds.

Magic Touch

Chanel’s new La Crème Main comes in a sleek, pouch-shaped bottle you can carry along to keep your hands hydrated throughout the day. Formulated with Damascus rose and Dalmatian iris from Chanel’s own Pégomas gardens in Grasse, France, and enriched with glycerin, hyaluronic acid and shea butter, the skin-softening balm works to moisturize and plump the skin while reducing the appearance of dark spots and strengthening cuticles and nails.

Shower Thoughts

Shaving is no fun. Thankfully, Being by Sanctuary Spa has landed in Canada to make the tedious and time-consuming task a little less of a chore. New from the British bath and body-care line, the Salted Caramel & Macadamia Shower Burst combines refreshing coconut water and hibiscus flower with hydrating shea butter and coconut oil for a smoothing shower cream slash shaving foam that, as a bonus, also happens to smell like dessert.

Brush It Off

My latest self-care ritual is reaching for Province Apothecary’s Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush when I wake up, rather than my phone. Aside from offering a few extra minutes of stress-free bliss, this handy tool helps to tone and exfoliate the skin, clear congestion, and reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. The result is a smoother, more refreshed-looking complexion that no amount of Instagram scrolling can match!
