amy’s picks

This hardworking mineral sunscreen will forever have a place in my travel bag. It protects against UVA and UVB rays and is completely transparent: no white cast! It glides on like silk and feels more like a makeup primer than a sunscreen, blurring imperfections and fine lines.
Coola - Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 Matte Tint
Cake Beauty’s indulgent sugar scrub smells positively scrumptious (think crème brûlée) and is packed with cocoa butter and coconut oil to condition the skin. It left my soft, smooth, and hydrated, and it’s the perfect prep before applying self-tanner. Best of all, it’s made in Canada!
Cake Beauty - Desserted Island Smoothing Brown Sugar Scrub
When I’m heading to the beach, the last thing I want to do is scare everyone with my glowing white legs. So fake it til you make it! This self-tanner is a velvety mousse that’s lightweight and easy to apply, and it develops into an even, believable tan. No orange streaky business here!
St. Tropez - Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
If you’re beach bound, you’ll need some melt-proof beauty products. Stila’s liquid lipstick stays put for hours despite sun, sand, and waves, and you won’t even need a lip liner. Patina is a rosy nude that flatters absolutely everyone, or try Como, Bella, or Venezia for a hit of colour.
Stila - Stay all Day® Liquid Lipstick
This mascara is budge-proof and melt-proof so it’s 100% beach approved! The synthetic, short-bristled brush grabs each and every lash (even the wee ones) for a naturally defined and lengthened look. It stays put in heat, humidity, and water so go splash around in the pool, you’re safe!
Lise Watier - 24 HRS Glam Mascara Noir
If you’ve been in the sun, replenishing lost moisture is critical. This face cream by NeoStrata is a no-brainer because it works for all skin types (even sensitive!) and can be used morning and night (less to pack). Fun fact: NeoStrata was Canada’s first ever cosmeceutical brand founded back in 1991!
Neostrata - Moisture Infusion™ Cream
Your body will be in need of hydration too and this miracle worker is all you’ll need. Shake just a few drops from the bottle et voilà: soft, hydrated skin without a hint of greasiness. I don’t know how they do it! The formula is 98% natural to boot.
Nuxe Paris - Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil
