Rhode drops a new flavour of its beloved peptide lip treatment
Hot off the Canadian launch of Hailey Bieber’s Rhode skincare line, the brand has just dropped a juicy new flavour of its best-selling peptide lip treatment that’s sure to become a summertime staple. This limited-edition Passionfruit Jelly flavour has all the lip-loving properties we know and love from the OG treatments (thanks to moisturizing shea butter and plumping peptide ingredients) with a citrusy twist that feels like a “vacation for your lips.” (One that we could all use right about now after a long Canadian winter.) Perfectly suited for a sunlit getaway, the product smells of ripe passionfruit, jasmine petals, and citrus-filled grapefruit. BRB, booking a direct flight to the tropics and bringing this lippie along for the ride.
Innisfree is revamping the retinol game
Korean beauty brand Innisfree is reimagining retinol with a collection of two new skincare products you’ll want to add to your medicine cabinet. The Retinol Cica Collection — inclusive of the Retinol Cica Moisture Recovery Serum and the Retinol Cica Patches — is powered by hero ingredients retinol (which smooths wrinkles and improves skin texture) and cica (aka tiger grass, known to soothe skin). This skincare duo is great for anyone who’s been on the fence about giving retinol a go. The lightweight serum is gentle enough for daily use by those who are new to retinol, and the patches are a soothing solution for treating troubled spots.
Tom Ford revamps an old favourite
Tom Ford’s original Grey Vetiver fragrance just got a bold upgrade. On the outside, the new Grey Vetiver Parfum captures the cool, masculine essence of the brand in a silver sleek flacon bottle. And inside, the fresh orange flower and rich saffron noted fragrance inspired by the sharpness of Tom Ford’s signature tailoring and styling is waiting to be spritzed.
Bioderma launches a sensitive-skin-approved defensive serum
Shopping for skincare can be a tedious process for those with sensitive skin, but Bioderma’s Sensibio range is filled with sensitive skin-friendly product offerings —including a new serum. The Defensive serum is the brand’s first long-lasting and soothing moisturizing concentrate, which seeks to target “inflamm’aging” — a combination of inflammation and signs of aging (such as fine lines and wrinkles) caused by external skin aggressors like UVA rays and pollution. By soothing, strengthening and hydrating the skin and its barrier with the aid of skin-loving ingredients like vitamin E, this gentle serum acts as a protectant against unwelcome inflamm’aging.
