SPRING INTO AC­TION

The prod­ucts we’re cov­et­ing now.

ELLE (Canada) - - Beauty -

1. Trav­el­ling? Con­sider Clarins SOS Hy­dra Re­fresh­ing Hy­dra­tion Mask ($34) your ex­press route to dewy skin with­out the need for clumsy sheet-mask­ing. The gel-cream ab­sorbs with­out a trace, and you won’t be left with a pile of empty beauty pack­ag­ing. 2. Acne prod­ucts are hardly ever de­scribed as lux­u­ri­ous, but we feel com­fort­able ap­ply­ing the term to Swiss Line Force Vi­tale Aqua-Pure Clar­i­fy­ing Serum ($142), an ef­fec­tive combo of ex­fo­li­at­ing acids and anti-in­flam­ma­to­ries. 3. Cana­dian de­signer Er­dem Mo­rali­oglu is part­ner­ing with long-time Fash­ion Week col­lab­o­ra­tor NARS Cos­met­ics for his first-ever beauty col­lec­tion. The vel­vety-matte NARS x Er­dem Night Gar­den Eye­shadow Pal­ette

($62) is a stand­out—as is the floral pack­ag­ing. 4. NeoS­trata has re­launched its top-sell­ing AquaYouth Fill­ing Anti-Wrin­kle Cream ($49) with dou­ble the hyaluronic acid plus top-of-the-line anti-wrin­kle pep­tide Ma­trixyl 3000. Slather it on with aban­don. 5. A spritz of Aerin Hi­bis­cus Palm Eau de Parfum Spray ($138 for 50 mL) is the next best thing to spend­ing a week in Tu­lum. BYO guac. 6. Sally Hansen Com­plete Salon Man­i­cure Nail + Cu­ti­cle Serum ($10) gives your nails the same hy­drated look as a cu­ti­cle oil with­out any of the ac­tual oil. Ex­cel­lent for day­time use when you’re wor­ried about stain­ing your new silk blouse or the file you have to hand-de­liver. 7. Fam­ily-run beauty com­pany Chante­caille is cel­e­brat­ing its 20th an­niver­sary by bring­ing back six nearly-too-pretty-to-use Philanthropy Cheek Shades ($54 each); each one is em­bossed with an an­i­mal, like the monarch but­ter­fly, and a por­tion of the pro­ceeds from sales will go to­ward its con­ser­va­tion.
