What’s the best way to salvage your beauty routine for the next couple months? By simply adding a few essential items to your already existent routine!
… for the hair
PRICE: $3.99 – $5.99 per bottle (depending on retailer)
AVAILABLE: Major drugstores across Canada
HOW IT HELPS: This amazing two-step hair process is perfect for anyone who suffers with static hair in the wintertime. With colder weather, our hair is zapped from the essential nutrients and moisture that makes it so bouncy and soft in the summer. It’s time to reintroduce that essential moisture back into our hair!
With Dove’s Daily Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner, we’ve got a moisturizer that adds 5x the moisture for a smoother and clearer hair care feel. I’ve been using this product non-stop for a week, and my hair is oh-so-grateful.
…for the skin (day)
PRODUCT: Dot & Lil Facial Serum
PRICE: $30.00 CAN
AVAILABLE: On Dot & Lil’s e-site
HOW IT HELPS: I’ve raved about this product in the past (see my original Dot & Lil Facial Serum review here). Last winter, this product single-handedly saved my skin from extreme dehydration. This multi-purpose formula is perfection when slathered over ‘fresh out of the shower’ skin. Got dry, flaky patches? This serum eliminates them instantaneously.
…for the skin (night)
PRODUCT: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa
PRICE: Over $30.00 CAN
AVAILABLE: Shoppers Drug Mart
HOW IT HELPS: Is there anything better than walking up with smooth skin? This little jar is a spa package in a bottle – the 15 mineral-rich Thermal Spa Water and aqua-gel consistency makes for an intense boost of moisturization immediately. Using the beneficial natural aspects of sleep, this gel works all night to replenish your skins natural moisture balance.
The best part of Vichy’s line is that it’s completely hypoallergenic and paraben free. Interesting enough, for a product that’s fairly new on the market, it’s already a Chatelaine’s 100 Beauty Winner!
…for the body
PRODUCT: The Body Shop Beautifying Oils
PRICE: $14.00 CAN
AVAILABLE: At all The Body Shop locations
HOW IT HELPS: I’m so happy that I was recommended this product – it’s changed my whole moisturization process! This multipurpose beauty oils are just as effective for the face and hair, but I’ve been mainly using it for the body. With a few drops, you’ve got enough oil to moisturize your body head to toe. Literally – only a handful of drops are required! Your skin instantly absorbs it and you’ll be feeling the smooth effects for over 24 hours guaranteed. Since it’s available in 12 different scents (everything from Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Satsuma, and Strawberry), you’re bound to find a scent of your choosing!
