Spring cleaning: Three skincare items you need to try this spring


We are in our final stretch of winter, which means that it’s time to start switching up the skincare routine.  Maybe you don’t need so thick of a moisturizer, or maybe you need a more oily cleanser to tame your skin in the warmer weather. Luckily, a new season means new skincare and I rounded up the top three items you need to try this spring.

Skindinavia Post-Makeup Recovery Spray

From the brand that made setting sprays a thing, Skindinavia always seems to amaze me with the formulas they come up with in a spray form. Their newest one is targeted to get rid of all that gross stuff that lives in our pores (no, it’s surprisingly not for makeup, in fact it’s aimed to get rid of makeup!).

Beauty products can clog pores and strip skin of key minerals, so the Post-Makeup Recovery Spray delivers a boost of key nutrients, including zinc, that is aimed to promote luminous, clear skin. The spray is designed to replenish the pH levels in our skin, as well as the minerals and vitamins that are depleted through long-wear makeup use.

Make sure you spray it within five minutes of cleaning your makeup off for maximum benefits. This product launched this month and you can find it on their website for $26 USD.

Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Mask-In-Oil

A skincare must is applying a serum before your moisturizer. I have a different one for day and night and the one I’ve been using before bed lately has been the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Recover Mask-In-Oil.

This serum is supposed to act as a sleeping mask, encouraging vital, natural nighttime skin recovery, while at the same time protecting and preparing skin for the next day.

Apply a few drops of this lightweight serum after your cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. The oil hugs the skin while you sleep to help strengthen the skin and support repair.

You can find this serum at Estee Lauder counters and Sephora and Shopper’s Drug Mart for C$100.

L’Oreal Hydra Genius and Micellar Water Complete Cleanser

After just being in Korea, I was excited to try out L’Oreal Paris’ new skincare line, Hydra Genius, which is inspired by their skincare. Available in three products, this line features three liquid-based moisturizers for oily (gel liquid and magnifying), normal to dry (rich liquid and glowing), and extra-dry skin (balmy liquid and comforting). These are formulated to offer lightweight hydration for all-day comfort. The liquid care is said to penetrate deeper, faster, and longer into the skin.

Each moisturizer is formulated with aloe water and hyaluronic acid to provide dual action. Skin feels more quenched after wear. Best part is the price. Each of these have an SRP of C$23.99 each.

Also new is the L’Oreal Micellar Water Complete Cleanser (okay, so I guess this post has four products, not three…).  I am obsessed with micellar water since I find it’s the best makeup remover out there. I have tried it from multiple brands and my favourite is the Bioderma, however, L’Oreal has just released a new formula that also delivers amazing results.

This cleansing water is for all skin types and removes makeup in a breeze (even waterproof mascara), as well as hydrating and soothing the skin. It also cleans away dirt and impurities on the face. It goes without saying, but make sure to use this before your cleanser.

There have been so many skincare launches last month and coming up. If you’re looking for a new skincare routine, I definitely recommend adding some of these products to your list!
