1. Huna Clarify Exfoliate Fruit Extract Face Toner, $60
By now, it’s obvious how much we love Huna’s skin care products—and this toner is one of our absolute favourites. Wake up to a refreshed and glowing complexion as the mild fruit acids in this formula (orange, lemon and strawberry) work overnight to repair your skin. To use, only apply at night, avoiding any sunlight while the fruit extracts do their work (fruit acids can make skin more photosensitive, so always use sunscreen—but you already do, don’t you?).
2. Foxy Originals Heart Bracelet, $24
Who doesn’t love summer? Show your affection for the season with this on-trend heart-charm beaded bracelet by Toronto’s Foxy Originals. Made in Canada, the silver is handmade in fine pewter and plated in silver, and the gold is handmade in fine pewter and plated in 14-karat gold. All of Foxy’s jewellery is lead-free and made locally to keep jobs at home. This lovely little piece is a great way to add some sparkle to your look and lift your mood this summer.
3. Mimi & August Cielo Candle, $19
Inspired by the “happiness of summer sun in the morning,” this 100 percent soy wax, paraben-free candle from Montreal’s Mimi & August is the perfect fragrance for the season. Made in Quebec, it features notes of fig, black currant and amber for a sweet, fruity and woodsy scent. For best results, let the candle burn for several hours the first time to melt the wax on the edges—and remember to cut your wick back to about one-quarter of an inch before each use to extend its life.
4. Evalina Beauty Eye Makeup, $35
No matter which one you received, you're going to be happy. Evalina Beauty's Precision Liquid Eyeliner is one of the best we've ever tried! The rich, highly pigmented colour glides on smoothly, dries quickly and stays put without transferring or smudging for up to 24 hours. The Shimmer Eyeshadow Stick hydrates lids with long-lasting colour and allows you to line, highlight and create smoky looks in an instant. And, of course, both products are paraben- and cruelty-free.
5. Nena Skincare Bamboo Cotton Pads Set, $7.50
We’re all trying to be kinder to the planet these days by avoiding single-use products—and these eco-friendly bamboo cotton pads from Vancouver-based Nena Skincare are a perfectly sustainable way to apply your Huna toner and eye makeup remover. Reusable and machine washable, this set of five comes in a handy organic cotton mesh pouch for your convenience and each one is big enough so that you only need one per use.
6. Jubel Naturals Bakuchiol Serum, $40
If you love the results of retinol, but don’t like how harsh it can be on your sensitive skin, we’ve found the perfect alternative. This incredible serum from Vancouver’s Jubel Naturals features bakuchiol, an all-natural plant ingredient with a range of anti-aging benefits—it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps restore firmness, and refines texture and tone. To use, gently shake the bottle and apply morning and night to cleansed, toned and exfoliated skin, then follow with moisturizer.
7. Cloth in a Box Glove It, $25
We know how much you loved Face It from Montreal-based Cloth in a Box in our winter collection, so we’re sure you’ll love Glove It for summer. Use one glove at a time or both simultaneously to clean and exfoliate: the soft pink fabric side is made for lathering and washing, while the grey side is designed to slough off dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling fresh and smooth after every use. Wash before first use in warm water with mild detergent and tumble dry on low heat, then wash after several uses.
8. Blush Peony Time Out Water Bottle, $40
Stay hydrated this summer with Vancouver-based Blush Peony’s Time Out water bottle. Not only is it super cute with its frosted glass and gold details, but it’s also a super-handy way to remember to drink more water, especially with temperatures rising. The bottle is time stamped for each hour of your day to make sure you’re sipping on the steady. Hand wash in warm soapy water and dry immediately.
9. Vyne Botanicals
As a special summer sipper for subscribers, Vyne Botanicals is a botanical-infused sparkling water, specially crafted to weave some vitality into everyday life, and feel good doing it! Each of their beverages is perfect for those looking to brighten days with a refreshing thirst quencher. Full of all the good stuff—from natural flavours to zero calories, you’re just one sip away from elevating the weekend repertoire.
