Surviving the holidays: 7 beauty kit essentials!

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we’re often short on time and sleep. And every year, we wonder if we’ll actually survive all that good cheer. To help you look flawless on all occasions, here’s a survival kit with 7 must-have beauty products.

Micellar solution 

Another day, another Christmas party! On some nights, you might be too exhausted to even remove your makeup before hitting the hay. Micellar water is your solution! Pour a few drops of the cleansing water on a cotton pad and run it over your face. That’s it! Your skin will be super clean. Micellar water boasts more than a few benefits: it leaves skin feeling fresh, calms the epidermis and soothes sensitive and intolerant skin. As an added bonus, it’s rinse-free!

Our top pick:
Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution by Bioderma. It contains ingredients that share some compatibility with the makeup of skin. It also comes in various size bottles, one of which has a super handy dispensing pump. 

Exfoliating mask

Holiday stress leaving your complexion looking dull and grey? The answer is an exfoliating mask! It will improve the texture of your skin, deep-clean your pores and do away with dead skin cells that build up on the surface. Your skin will glow again, so you can look absolutely radiant in your next selfies. Use it once or twice a week to maintain a healthy look. 

Our top pick:
The Trilogy Mask by IDC. It is the only product of its kind on the market to combine three types of exfoliating action! 

Cosmetic eye patches

This year, don’t let your late nights affect the appearance of your skin. In only 15 minutes, you can erase signs of fatigue, including dark circles and puffiness, and even reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. How, you ask? By applying directly to affected areas special cosmetic patches designed to quickly smooth out skin. As a bonus, you’ll get to enjoy a breather or, better yet, a cat nap.  Pretty sweet, no?  

Our top pick:
Dermo-Lift Corrective Eye Patches by Karine Joncas. It’s a professional-grade cosmetic skincare product designed for easy home use.

Lift-effect beauty vials 

Just as you hit the couch, you find out that you have yet another party to attend tonight. For an instant boost of radiance, try a lift-effect beauty vial. The product forms an invisible film that tightens skin and fades flaws in minutes. Say hello to better tone! It’s formulated for use on the face and neckline. Tip from the pros: Use half the vial on problem areas and add the rest to your favourite liquid foundation.

Our top pick:
Coup d’éclat Face Lift Beauty Ampoules. They work almost instantly: 3 minutes is all you need!

Correcting palettes

All women should have concealer in their handbag for quick touch-ups. It’s a must-have, but there’s better still! Correcting palettes are amazing at camouflaging the majority of skin flaws: pimples, dark circles, redness, brown spots and scars. Plus, you can use the lighter shades (lilac or rosy beige) to add a touch of light to your complexion. Apply the product with a brush or your finger. Super easy! 

Our top pick:
The Portfolio Professional Correctors by Lise Watier. Its creamy formula provides great coverage of all sorts of minor flaws.

Thermal water

During the holidays, your skin is subjected to extra stress: cold weather, frequent hand washing, a few extra drinks here and there, shaving and so on. This leaves it more dehydrated and irritated than usual. Soothe your skin with spray-on thermal spring water, a versatile product that’s perfect for sensitive, fragile, hypersensitive, allergic or irritated skin. Its softening and decongesting properties help to reduce skin inflammation, set your makeup and brighten your complexion, all with one spray! It’s a Christmas miracle! Well almost…Just keep a bottle with you at all times. 

Our top pick:
Thermal Spring Water Spray by Avène. It comes in many convenient sizes.

Echosline dry shampoo 

There’s no shortage of special outings during the holidays. But you may not want to exposure your hair to daily washings and styling sessions.  Dry shampoo is the answer. It will refresh your locks fast, giving your hair texture and volume.

Our top pick:
Keratin Dry Shampoo by Echosline. It’s exclusive to Uniprix!
