In the realm of cosmetics, it’s easy to get lost, with the dizzying number of new arrivals hitting the shelves. Our team presents its discoveries and suggestions for tested… and approved products, especially for Mother’s Day!
A few drops to look good
For some, the mere word “self-tanning” makes you tremble because you wonder if your skin will be orange… Well, surprise! With this Teaology self-tanning serum with black tea infusion and hyaluronic acid, we obtain, as we tested on our face, a light tanned complexion, very natural. We apply a few drops of the serum on the face, or we can also add a few drops to our moisturizer, then spread evenly on the clean skin of the face, and voila! In a few hours, our face was illuminated with a light tanned complexion which will last several days. Teaology is a cosmetics brand that uses natural ingredients. Each product is infused with the goodness of tea, such as this organic black tea infusion serum, full of antioxidants and caffeine, which energizes the skin.
Price: $49 (30 ml), available online and at Familiprix and Brunet pharmacies
A delicate and irresistible pure oil
Omy’s pure oil has proven to be a great ally for our face. Very quickly, the skin appeared less saggy, thanks to the vitamin C and vegetable squalane it contains. But what’s even better is that this oil managed to balance our combination skin despite the changing seasons, which is not always the case with creams. It is applied with a dropper and spreads gently with the fingers or with the included gua sha massage tool, which can be engraved with the name of the person to whom it is offered. Made in Quebec, the oil is also 100% vegan and fragrance-free.

It is a reactive and very sensitive skin, weakened by an ugly cold urticaria, that we presented to Nathalie Forget, dermonaturopath and founder of the Davincia brand. She is the inventor of the Biocompatible Care, a patented “living” care, unique in its kind on the market, which uses the power of probiotics in particular, to help the skin regain the balance of its cutaneous flora by acting on 15 problems. common (pimples, oily skin, redness, brown spots, etc.). The mask, the line’s flagship treatment, is a real elixir — don’t let its seaweed green color discourage you from trying it! After just one treatment, our skin was visibly soothed, the redness and swelling gone. An improvement that continued during the eight weeks of the suggested protocol, using the range of products (serum, cleanser, day cream and sunscreen) – all made with natural ingredients, safe for the skin and without fragrance.
Price: For Mother’s Day, Davincia is offering a special price package of $200, available at participating retailers.
Like at the spa
If you do not send your mother to the spa, it is possible to bring the spa to your mother. Or just like. At least that’s what the new Vinotherapist range, signed Caudalie, offers with its series of nourishing products, inspired by the French brand’s spa in Bordeaux. And it is successful. After testing the products over several weeks, our skin is not quite the same. Big crush for the vegan butter, made with grape seed oil, of course (Caudalie’s mark), but also with date palm oil and organic shea butter. An essential for dry skin, to be used without moderation in the summer. The foot beauty cream will also make people happy. Its composition of shea butter and red vine extract literally works miracles on damaged and rough heels, after months of inattention. One application, and you’re done. Amen.
