Spring is on the way in Toronto. No, seriously! It will soon be time to come out of hibernation and venture outside. If you’re considering a spring makeover, here are a few beauty products that we love that will help you feel rejuvenated and ready for the change of season.
I’ve featured Sibu Beauty products on Torontonicity before. What I love about Sibu products is they are affordable and accessible. You can pick them up at your local Loblaws store. Sibu Beauty’s Sea Buckthorn Body Cream, $14.95, leaves your skin feeling really smooth for several hours and you don’t need to use a lot of it. The body cream is made from organic Sea Buckthorn, a Himalayan berry that contains the rare Omega 7 fatty acid, known for its emollient qualities. It’s lightly scented with natural orange essential oils to provide a citrusy scent.
If you have fine hair like I do, you’ll love the Tangle Teezer, $25. This pocket-sized styler has wide enough teeth to glide through tangled hair so you don’t end up with the brush stuck in your hair. I tried it on my hair when it was wet and dry and the brush easily combed through my hair. I love the shape of the brush, which has been ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in your hand and it’s not too big to pop into your handbag. You’ll find the Tangle Teezer at Sephora. It comes in hot pink, gold, black and leopard print.
If you’re like me, you’ve moved away from using soaps that contain a lot of chemicals, which is why I love Sapadilla’s Liquid Hand Soap in Grapefruit and Bergamot, $8.95. This B.C. company makes eco-friendly cleansers including dish soap that contain natural ingredients and 100% essential oil blends. The Grapefruit and Bergamot Hand Soap contains grapefruit, sweet orange, lemon and bergamot essential oils. This liquid hand soap will kick-start your olfactory senses; the grapefruit scent is absolutely intoxicating. You can find Sapadilla Soap Co. products at The Detox Market in Toronto or online.
