The tall drink of water

The ultra-nourishing face mask

Fresh Cosmetics Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask, $150 at Sephora

“Honey is the star ingredient in this creamy product, but it’s the antioxidant-rich echinacea that makes this mask a staple. It helps the epidermis fight off daily damage and leaves it with a lustrous glow. [At press time, the product was already on back order, but stock should be replenished by the end of the year.]” – BN

The most uplifting face scrub

Shiseido Ibuki Purifying Cleanser, $35 at Shiseido counters across Canada (visit www.shiseido.com for locations)

The multitasking sunscreen

Prevage Triple Defense Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50, $95 at Elizabeth Arden counters (visit www.elizabetharden.com for locations)

The stress fighter

The curl master

“The latest version of the iconic Shu Uemura eyelash curler has been designed without sidebars, so it fits all types of eye shapes, from shallow to deep set. It’s the perfect tool for creating everything from a demi-lift (when placed at the base of the lash line) to a Kardashianesque curl when used from base to tip.”– AD
