The best of what’s landing on store shelves in January 2018.
Take one whiff of Batiste’s new Rose Gold Dry Shampoo and you’ll be hooked. With top notes of bergamot and freesia, middle notes of rose, jasmine and almond, plus a touch of vanilla and praline, this limited-edition spray smells so divine, it might have you reconsidering your go-to fragrance (and skipping the shower more often, too).
Batiste Rose Gold Dry Shampoo, $8.99 at drug, mass and grocery chain retailers.
Speaking of good scents, Maybelline has infused its latest volumizing mascara with coconut extract for a creamy, soft-mousse finish that delivers buildable volume with every swipe. Simply wiggle the brush through your lashes from root to tip for fuller-looking lashes (just don’t let the mascara dry between coats!).
Love Beauty and Planet is a recently launched green-beauty brand that’s giving new meaning to “feel-good” pampering. Case in point: their Majestic Moisture Body Wash, which is housed in a bottle made entirely from recycled plastic and features ethically sourced, hand-harvested shea butter and Australian sandalwood oil to offer softer skin in the shower, and a cleaner planet, too.
The perfect product for parched winter skin, Beautycounter’s new Adaptive Moisture Lotion features an intuitive combination of plant-derived ingredients that works on all types of skin for a natural way to stay hydrated in sub-zero temps.
Your lips aren’t just susceptible to the cold because they’re constantly exposed — they also lack the protective outer layer and oil glands found in the rest of your skin. Make sure to shield your pout through the winter months with a rich formula like Avène’s Cold Cream Lip Butter, which soothes with thermal water, nourishes with shea butter and jojoba oil, and protects against free-radical damage thanks to antioxidant-rich vitamin E.
Avène Cold Cream Lip Butter, $12 at Pharmaprix/Shoppers Drug Mart.
Grab hold of this handy tool for multiple ways to apply your makeup with one sponge. Use the denser, black side for medium to full coverage, and the softer, pink side for a more sheer wash of your favourite foundations, concealers and liquid colour products. Better still, the tip is perfect for defining specific features and reaching the smaller parts of your face, while the flat base allows the sponge to stand up on its own.
