Saving Face

Circ-cell Extraordinary Face Oil

Circ-cell Extraordinary Face Oils

In a market saturated with oils, it’s not every day we come across a formula that commands our attention. Aimed at delivering the skin lipid profile of a healthy 22 year old, these oils go through a fermentation process that reduces the size of the oil molecule while increasing the EFA (essential fatty acid) count. This means that the deeply nourishing formula, although light and non-greasy, still penetrates the skin. For anti-aging, we recommend Jacqueline’s Blend, which plays double-duty by hydrating the skin with rose and jasmine oils, while increasing collagen and reducing age-related discoloration with its oil-soluble vitamin C. Skin is protected from the elements while elasticity and suppleness is preserved.



Laboratoire Dr Renaud Peel Pads

These peel pads, which use lactic acid and fruit enzymes, are perhaps the most convenient and effective way to resurface your skin at home. Active ingredients banish accumulated dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, revealing a “new radiance and help[ing] improve skin texture,” says Isabelle Villeneuve, the Director of Research and Development and Global Strategic Projects for Laboratoire Dr Renaud. Don’t panic if you have sensitive skin because, “Lactic Acid is gentler compared to Glycolic Acid, which has the most potential to irritate, and is very well tolerated by all skin types, including sensitive, fragile skin,” says Isabelle. That said, the Peel Pads are recommended for all skin types, including the most sensitive.

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante: Skin Perfecting Illuminating Matte Powder

If you invest in one powder this year, let this be it. The innovative formula creates a “luminous matte” effect on the skin leaving no trace of product behind. The powder sets foundation and creates a “soft focus” effect, which blurs all signs of fine lines and blemishes. Skin is matte, yet luminous, and glowing in an effortless and understated way.

Maybelline New York The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

Can we dare you to go bare this holiday season? Try an unexpected look by ditching liners and eyeshadows and relying only on glowing skin and beyond bold lashes. As Grace Lee, lead makeup artist for Maybelline New York Canada, once told us, this mascara “is a push-up bra for your eyelashes.” Enough said, right? Trust us that this mascara will take your lashes to unchartered territory. You’ll be left with distant memories of your go-to smokey eye.


Healthy Hair 101


Kerastase masque therapiste

Kérastase PARIS Masque Thérapiste

Our hair goes through a lot during the winter. From cold and harsh winds to dry indoor heating, our strands are left damaged and brittle. The result? “A lot of pretty bad winter hair days,” says Kérastase Ambassador, Pavielyne Carandang, of McKinnon Hair Design. Thankfully, we can remedy the situation. This rinse-out treatment is buttery in texture and, as Pavielyne explains, features a “unique Fibra-Cap ingredient that revives and moisturizes your hair fibres. Using this mask once or twice a week leaves your hair feeling lively and vibrant again.”


Schwarzkopf BC HAIRTHERAPY Oil Miracle Light Finishing Treatment

The final piece to our winter hair puzzle is this deeply nourishing oil treatment. Unlike many hair oils that leave behind unwanted residue, this formula features an “Evaporating Technology” that ensures hair isn’t weighed down with product. Damaged hair is revitalized with opulent shine and softness, allowing you to maintain the integrity of your hair throughout the year.
