From pore-minimizing essences to radiance-boosting serums, these picks are top shelf-worthy.
Whether you’re a skincare aficionado or building a regimen from scratch, these innovative formulas highlighted in the Shoppers Drug Mart Top Picks lineup deserve a prized spot in your cabinet. Read on to discover the best finds for every step of your routine.
For a deeper clean
To get the most out of your skincare, it’s important to begin your routine with a fresh canvas. A thorough cleanse preps your skin to absorb all the nourishing goodness you layer over top. With boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel, washing your face goes from a chore to a treat, thanks to a refreshing gel texture that soothes — never strips — your skin. Plus, this vegan and gluten-free formula stars antioxidant-loaded rosemary leaf extract to firm the skin while reducing the appearance of pores.
For a more even skin tone
Post-cleanse, gently slough away any remaining grime with a toning essence, like LANCÔME Clarifique Dual Facial Essence Skin Refining Treatment with Glycolic Acid. It works by way of a two-phase formula: first, a blend of line-smoothing glycolic acid, zit-zapping salicylic acid and brightening vitamin C works to smooth texture and boost radiance. Then, a grapeseed oil-infused 3% lipid enriched complex hydrates the skin for a petal-soft complexion.
For a total skin recharge
Glowing skin is just a serum away with Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex. A few drops of this cult favourite formula strengthens, firms and hydrates skin almost instantaneously. After three weeks, expect a notable reduction in fine lines (no, really!). Just apply the lightweight, non-sticky serum every night and wait for the magic to happen.
For double the defense
Get the most out of your skincare with a multitasking serum that works to dramatically improve the condition of your complexion. Featuring a cocktail of 21 supercharged plant extracts, Clarins Double Serum harnesses the power of two serums in one to combat signs of aging, while simultaneously nurturing the skin’s most vital functions: regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration and protection.
For super refreshed skin
Love the dewy look? Consider adding Biotherm Aquasource Hyalu Plump Gel to your beauty repertoire. Safe for sensitive skin, this hyaluronic acid-infused gel moisturizer plumps and hydrates day to night and is free of common irritants like silicones, parabens, EDTA, mineral oils and sulfates. Instead, it relies on Biotherm’s proprietary Life Plankton Probiotic Extract to replenish the skin and protect against external aggressors like smoke, pollution and stress.
For long-lasting hydration
Lock in your glow no matter your skin type with a moisturizer that penetrates deep, like Clinique Moisture Surge™ 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. Don’t be fooled by its lightweight texture: the oil-free formula travels 10 layers into the skin’s surface to ensure optimal hydration levels for 100 hours. How? Unique auto-replenishing technology helps the skin maintain its own internal water source for continuous hydration. The result: a smoother, plumper and more resilient complexion.
