This lightweight makeup remover has long been a favourite of celebrity makeup artists.

The lip gloss everyone’s been talking about certainly lives up to its hype.

3. Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Day Cream & Night Cream
Price: $49.00 – $53.00 each
Leading research shows that a harmful mixture of UV rays, pollution, thermal shocks, air conditioning, and stress contribute to 32 mL of facial water loss each day. To combat the problem, Clarins has created a fresh new line of ultra-hydrating day and night creams. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and organic leaf of life extract, these tandem moisturizers help boost the skin’s natural self-hydration mechanisms and preserve its moisture reserves to keep your skin feeling supple and luminous around the clock.
Price: $30.00 – $32.00 each
Clarins is going all-out this spring with a trio of products inspired by the luscious camellia flower. The limited edition makeup spray is infused with an uplifting floral fragrance and enriched with aloe vera extract to instantly hydrate, soothe, and protect the skin. Of course, Clarins doesn’t stop there—their camellia-inspired lip comfort oil delivers high-shining colour while visibly plumping the lips. Plus, for a more pigmented shade, they’ve also released an intense lip oil. It’s impossible to pick just one, so you might as well try them all!
