We asked Emily what her favourite beauty product is:
“Oof that’s a tough question! If I had to choose one, I’d say Rodin’s face oil. It smells amazing, makes your face look dewy, and makes it so your make-up glides on easily. It’s an investment, but one I think is worth making.”
–Emily Schuman, author of blog and book Cupcakes and Cashmere
We asked Carin about her favourite beauty products:
“I love the hair products from the brand Rene Furterer that I’ve found here in Paris. The highlighting compact powder from Sephora in the colour “rose” is something that I now can’t live without. I also love the sea salt spray from Toni & Guy and my current perfume, which I adore, is “Un Jardin Sur Le Toit” by Hermès.”
–Carin Olsson, author and photographer of Paris in Four Months
I met Candice last month at Green + Good, a pop-up event at The Gladstone Hotel that hosted the best of Canada’s eco and natural beauty and skincare products. She gave an amazing presentation on what is really going into your products, what to avoid and how to change your routine. It doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul, because it’s not going to be easy. Don’t start with your absolute favourite product–instead find a better alternative for something easy like a body cream and go from there. Her presentation was really informative and I know really inspired the crowd to think about what they are applying onto their bodies every day.
The average woman applies about 9 personal care products a day, and in many cases this adds up to a great deal of toxic chemicals too, around 168 to be exact. Detoxing from the outside in is just as important as from the inside out. The skin after all is the largest organ on the body and absorbs 60% of the stuff we put on it, so it’s really important to use skin care products that don’t compromise your health. As the Eco Expert on The Marilyn Denis Show, I get to try hundreds of products; here are some of my top choices. I use these everyday and are truly tired and tested.
Tata Harper’s Refreshing Cleanser smells a-may-zing, clearly I love my products to smell beautiful. It also removes makeup really well; it’s soft and silky and washes off so easily.
“As a beauty expert on Citytv’s Cityline and editor of BEAUTY the guide magazine, I see over 1,000 beauty products a year. The sheer number of new skincare, fragrance and makeup arriving in store each season can be overwhelming. So I spend a lot of time really studying the formulas and the most flattering shades. Fragrance is particularly tricky as perfume will smell different on two people due to skin chemistry. Here are some of my favourites.
