It’s a brand-new year – an exciting time for self-reflection and looking towards all the wonderful things that lay ahead. It’s also a great time to go through your things and see what you love and what works for you, and what doesn’t give you joy or isn’t working anymore – including your beauty stashes. To help start your year off right, Raquel DaSilva is excited to share her suggestions of her five beauty essentials that are sure to become beloved staples this year and beyond.
Jodi Lee Healing Oil Serum
My holy grail all-natural day and night oil. Healing oil is composed of active oils that are rich in vitamin A which is known to plump flattened skin cells. It’s made a huge difference in my skin texture and smoothed pre-mature crows feet around my eyes. As a veteran in the beauty world, healthy skin is my top priority before makeup or any enhancements. I love the Jodi Lee line because it is fresh, local and has no additives or fillers. Ideal for all skin types, including acne prone skin, for its anti-inflammatory properties. Pair with a GUA SHA facial massager before bed for optimal results and absorption
HairGod Scalp Pro
It’s time to change the way you wash your hair. Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. This silicone-tipped multi-purpose massager stimulates blood flow on the scalp which dramatically improves hair growth. Use it when washing your hair to clean all that dirt and debris off the scalp and to activate dormant follicles, which promotes hair health and growth. I love to pair it with our growth potion oil to help maximize results.
Fun fact – the handle is made of upcycled wheat straw material for maximum comfort!
White2Nite Teeth Whitening Pen
Smile with confidence all year long. I’m obsessed with this natural tooth whitener pen. It is THE most effective and affordable whitening option available that doesn’t cause tooth sensitivity. It’s formulated without any harsh chemicals, artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners. It’s also super easy to use and the results are amazing.
REVIVE 7 Lash and Brow Serum
Take care of your beautiful eyes. I always remind people that our lashes and brows are just like the hair on our head – they need love and attention too, in order to look and feel their best. This made-in-Canada, grade-A serum helps to increase overall lash and brow health and volume without using any harmful ingredients. Lashes and brows will appear fuller, thicker and stronger within 7-21 days. One bottle lasts up to 6-9 months with everyday use. Definitely worth adding to your beauty routine this year!
ILUMINAR SKIN Foaming Sugar Scrub
Supple soft skin is always in style. I highly recommend adding this soft and fluffy whipped body scrub to your shower caddy. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E, it gently exfoliates and cleanses the skin, leaving it oh-so soft and fresh. The creamy base lathers up providing a true lavish shower experience. Start every day off right with this incredible product.
