Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream
Retinol has experienced a resurgence lately, with the ingredient being included in the latest products of many skincare brands. One of the best Retinol-focused products we’ve tried recently is the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, which includes tri-active technology including a retinoid that is fast-acting, a time-released retinol and a retinol booster that work together for quick, long-lasting results.

YSL Pure Shots Serums
YSL Beauty has recently come out with a line of four serums, all containing ingredients sourced from Morocco and meant to target specific skin concerns, including the Lines Away Serum, meant to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and the Light Up Serum, meant to give the complexion an overall brighter look. Depending on what your skin needs, you can incorporate this into your pre-wedding skincare routine for your best face forward on your wedding day.
Joico Hydraspash Line
Having dry, brittle hair is especially annoying when you have fine or even medium textured hair. To ensure your hair is in tip top shape for your big day, we absolutely recommend you use the right products to ensure your strands are as hydrated as possible. For this, we love Joico’s new Hydrasplash Line, which includes coconut water and sea kelp, which contain vitamins that hydrate your hair.
Starting at $17.50, joico.ca.
Beautycounter Countermatch Hydra-Gel Radiance Toner
If you don’t have a toner in your skincare kit yet, this is one you might want to pick up. Its unique texture makes it incredibly easy to apply, but the result speaks for itself—it reduces the appearances of pores and removes any dirt and oil left over from your initial cleanse, acting as the perfect prepping product for your other skincare to follow.
NYX High Glass Illuminating Powder
Want to enhance that wedding-day glow? We’re currently obsessed with NYX’s new High Glass Illuminating Powder that has a gel powder to highlighter texture that delivers amazing colour payoff, allowing you to control whether you want a strobe-like highlighting effect or something much more subtle.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection
We are absolutely singing at the arrival of this new launch—Charlotte Tilbury has taken her iconic Pillowtalk lipstick (which we think is one of the most bridal-worthy lipstick shades of all time) and expanded it into a whole collection range of products, featuring the Pillowtalk shade in slightly deeper hues to suit a range of skintones.
Starting at $27, charlottetilbury.ca.
Benefit POREfessional Hydrate Primer
During February we can bet your skin is itching for a little more hydration against the cold, drying weather. For that extra boost, we like to put a hydrating primer under foundation. Benefit’s well-loved POREfessional Primer now has a hydrating counterpart that we are absolutely obsessed with, to ensure that skin still looks plump underneath your bridal beauty makeup.
