Canadian Indie Beauty Products to Get You Glowing for Spring
While the weather hasn’t been entirely favourable, we’re finding refuge in prepping ourselves for when the sun is finally here and we can step out in all our goddess glory, our mineral-sunscreen protected faces to the sky.
There is nothing like stocking up your beauty shelf for spring. Right now we’re favouriting products that help us achieve an all-over, post-winter glow naturally.
1. Cocoon Apothecary’s Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster
If you buy one new and interesting beauty product this season, make it THIS! While serums have been hyped up to no end, the Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster will take your moisturizing game to the absolute next level. Add a few drops to your serum or cream-based moisturizer and you will see an immediate glow that lasts all day. The carotene base protects skin cells from UV damage and converts to retinol, which is an active vitamin A that keeps skin smooth and firm.
Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster consists of the organic sea buckthorn, organic rosehip and organic pomegranate seed to repair skin’s barrier, replenish hydration, and protect skin cells. Wild-grown frankincense derived from the resin of the Boswellia tree offers soothing and rejuvenating properties.
2. 1’Lux Body Brush and Velvet Blonde Emolient Oil
New to the skincare scene, 1’Lux is an actual unicorn of #zerotox product lines that focus specifically on the body. The scents and quality of the capsule product line are immaculately luxurious, formulated with nourishing botanicals such as aloe, apricot, calendula, camellia, chamomile, chia, green tea, jojoba, meadowfoam, rosehip, rosemary and sunflower. Fruit infusions include almond, avocado, blueberry, cocoa, coconut, cranberry, goji, grapeseed, mango, raspberry, shea, squalane, and strawberry.
Our favourite ritual is a quick once over with the SRSLY BUFFED dry brush, followed by the indulgent Velvet Blonde Emolient Oil.
3.Wildcraft Face and Body Scrub
While many drugstore scrubs can rip away your skin’s natural moisture and protection barriers, this mineral rich exfoliant for the face and body from Wildcraft consists of nourishing ingredients that gently remove blemishes for a supreme glow. Ingredients such as arrowroot powder, apricot kernel shells, chamomile flowers, peppermint oil leave skin polished and refreshed.
4. Cardea AuSet AURORA Facial Oil

This skin-firming oil is enriched with vitamin’s A, C, D, E, and lends omega fatty acids from avocado oil, the building blocks of cellular membranes. The presence of jojoba and apricot work to reduce inflammation while firming skin and the refreshing tones of grapefruit will brighten you skin for the day.
