Vintner’s Daughter Q&A: Active Renewal Cleanser

Vintner's Daughter has unveiled their latest skincare innovation: Active Renewal Cleanser. Find out what makes it a game changer for your skincare routine.

Active Renewal Cleanser, the latest addition from award-winning brand Vintner’s Daughter has arrived, adding to their line of simple, minimalist skincare. Four years in the making and their third product launch in ten years, we are excited for you to discover this face wash like no other. Founder April and her team answered some of the most asked questions about their newest skin-beautifying formula.

Keep on reading to learn more about Active Renewal Cleanser and how to incorporate it into your daily routine.

Q&A WITH VINTNER’S DAUGHTER

WHAT MAKES ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER DIFFERENT?

APRIL & TEAM: “This innovative formula not only thoroughly cleanses, but also invigorates the skin so that it is more healthy, PH balanced, more plump, clear, and bright. It’s hard to put into words, but it just feels renewed and energized with each cleanse.”

WHY CLEANSER NOW?

APRIL & TEAM: “The short answer is that we heard you. We often ask what products you want to see next and the first amongst them has always been cleanser. We too felt that there was not a formula that lived up to our standards of performance, quality and craftsmanship. So we spent nearly four years formulating Active Renewal Cleanser.”

WHAT MAKES IT A 2-IN-1 CLEANSER?

APRIL & TEAM: “At the heart of the formula is Vintner’s Daughter Phyto Radiance Infusion™ which harnesses the power of full-spectrum water and oil-soluble solutions to thoroughly and gently cleanse the skin with every use.”

WHICH SKIN TYPES ARE BEST FOR ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER?

APRIL & TEAM: “Active Renewal Cleanser benefits all skin including blemish-prone, sensitive, dehydrated and/or mature skin. Best results when used daily morning and night.”

WHAT IS THE ROUTINE?

APRIL & TEAM: “Adding Active Renewal Cleanser before you use Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum ensures your skin has all it needs to be healthy and radiant.”

HOW DO YOU APPLY ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER?

APRIL & TEAM: “For best results, use daily morning and evening. After splashing cool water on your face, dispense 2-3 pumps into your hands. Apply to your face and neck. Rub in a circular motion to create a rich foaming action for 30-60 seconds. Rinse thoroughly. For a beautifully simple routine, follow with Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum.”

I AM NOT GETTING A LOT OF FOAM WHEN USING ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER. IS THAT NORMAL?

APRIL & TEAM: “Not only is it normal but it is better for your skin that a cleanser does not create foamy bubbles. Proper pH balance in the skin is something that is often overlooked for the sake of a showy, foamy or bubbly cleanse. We describe our formula as gently foaming—the result of combining the nutrient-rich formulation with a small amount of water and then moving it around your face.”

IS THERE FRAGRANCE ADDED TO ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER?

APRIL & TEAM: “There is no fragrance added to Active Renewal Cleanser — everything you smell is natural whole plants.”

HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS WITH ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER?

APRIL & TEAM: “Most individuals see a visible improvement in their skin within days. Because of our whole plant nutrition, results will increase over time.”

HOW LONG WILL A BOTTLE OF ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER LAST?

APRIL & TEAM: “The 115ml bottle of Active Renewal Cleanser will last approximately 40 days with AM/PM application. It will last approximately 80 days if used once a day.”

WHAT IS ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER’S SHELF LIFE AND STORAGE?

APRIL & TEAM: “Once opened, the shelf life is 12 months. Proper storage and care of your Active Renewal Cleanser includes keeping it away from extreme temperatures (cold or hot) and keeping it out of direct sunlight.”

IS ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER TESTED ON ANIMALS?

APRIL & TEAM: “Active Renewal Cleanser is vegan and is not tested on animals.”

IS ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER SAFE FOR USE DURING PREGNANCY?

APRIL & TEAM: “It is always best to consult your doctor when using any active product, but there are no ingredients that have contraindications for pregnancy.”

The Etiket Team’s Current Favourites

We're rounding up what Etiket offerings our talented and knowledgeable team members have fallen in love with recently.

We’re rounding up what Etiket offerings our talented and knowledgeable team members have fallen in love with and we are thrilled to share their current must-haves! Spanning categories such as skincare, hair care, body care, fragrance and more, let’s dive into what has stolen everyone’s heart, shall we?

MAX
Fragrance Specialist

Pentimento EDP by Jorum Studio

Pentimento sweeps me off my feet every time with its rich, decadent character. For me, it’s like putting on a cashmere knit. Carob, rum and tonka bean absolute with vanilla, hazelnut and tobacco flower are all good reasons to grab it whenever the temperatures drop.

Cuir Velours EDP by Naomi Goodsir

On my skin, Cuir Velours offers a dark intermingling of tobacco and leather, with the sweet notes of rum and immortelle. Okay, understandably, I love the rum and tobacco notes. The surprising character of the leather charmed me immediately and accompanies me when I want to catch the eye.

Purifying Cleanser by Tata Harper

In the evening, I apply and massage this melt-in texture cleanser onto my skin and let it sit for a few minutes, like a quick mask. The texture, which changes from a gel to a fine oil, is so satisfying and the textured herbal and ginger notes immerse me in a deep moment of relaxation. I always take the opportunity to give my face a full body massage even when it’s only 9 p.m. and my bed is already calling my name!

Radiance Serum by Vivier

I can’t get enough of this serum, which I apply after cleansing and toning my skin. Its formula, rich in vitamin C, arbutin and resorcinol, gives me an instant glow, evens out my complexion and works over the long term by allowing my skin to age beautifully! It was suggested to me by Naomi (from the Etiket team, and I thank her!).


JORDANNA
Holistic Aesthetician 

Tamarindo EDP by Memo

Tamarindo from Memo is the perfume I’m loving right now. It reminds me of escaping winter in Canada and heading to the beach in Costa Rica. A blend of pineapple, vanilla, bergamot and patchouli makes this scent warm and wild.

Polly Plum Comforting Body Cream by Pai Skincare

Polly Plum from Pai is a calming and hydrating body lotion that I love for winter. It’s fast absorbing on the skin and easy to apply in the morning. This is a wonderful product to help protect the skin in colder weather. For those who suffer from itchiness and inflammation (eczema/psoriasis), this is THE product for you!

Rahua Scalp Exfoliating Shampoo

Rahua’s Scalp Exfoliating Shampoo is my current hair obsession. When treating our hair we need to treat our scalp for optimal hair health.

HydraFacial MD JLo Glow

Our new HydraFacial MD JLo Glow is my new spa treatment obsession. The only HydraFacial to firm and restore the skin, using olive leaf extract and niacinamide along with many other ingredients to make your skin brighter, tighter, nourished and plumper.


THOMAS
Boutique & Spa Assistant Manager 

Tihota EDP by Indult

My favorite scent is Tihota EDP by Indult. I love mixing it with Coccobello EDP by Heeley. They remind me of where I was born and the good times I had on the beach.

Botanical Body Nectar by Huna

I love Huna’s Botanical Body Nectar. I love the flowery smell. It moisturizes my very dry skin well and besides being natural, the container is a really good size for its very small price.

Leave-In Treatment by Rahua

I use this treatment every night in large amounts to moisturize my dry hair, and in the morning in smaller amounts to keep my hair moisturized all day and to help with styling. Thanks to this product I am surprised how beautiful my hair looks even after bleaching.

Tata Harper Etiket Signature Facial (with our aesthetician Samuelle!)

I love natural products, and Tata Harper’s scents help me relax during my treatments. Moreover, Samuelle is very gentle and concerned about our well-being.


CLAUDIA
Beauty & Fragrance Advisor

Cow Extrait de Parfum by Zoologist

This is such a cozy scent that can be worn in summer or winter, in daytime or nighttime. It paints a picture of a cozy Sunday afternoon on a white couch with a fluffy blanket, with the windows open and the faint fresh smell of the prairies. It is all the beauty of the feeling of nature and being in the outdoors and nothing else. The artistry of the bottle adds to that warm feeling as well.

Superkind Bio-Shield Face Oil by Tata Harper

My favourite beauty product of the moment is the new Bio-Shield Face Oil by Tata Harper. It has all the luxury experience of the other Tata Harper products, but with a more sensitive touch. The oil is perfect for any skin condition without having to worry about any type of reaction. I personally have been using it twice a day and have seen an improvement in my skin.

The TOHI Scalp Serum by BeautéJaponica

My current favourite hair product is the new TOHI Scalp Serum from BeautéJaponica. I appreciate the concept of scalp health intersecting with self-care and the brand taking time to make a video on how to properly massage the scalp to get the most out of the serum!

HydraFacial MD JLo Glow

My favourite spa treatment is the HydraFacial MD JLo Glow. HydraFacials completely change the look of your skin and promote healthy cell regeneration, in combination with the glow… the results are incredible!


MARIE-FRANCE
Boutique & Spa Manager

Room Service EDP by Vilhelm Parfumerie and Sunshine Woman by Amouage

I hesitate between these two as they both give me an inexplicable feeling of peace with the gourmand, fresh citrus and violet of Room Service and the white tobacco, blackcurrant and almond of Sunshine Woman. For me, these are PERFECT scents. They are also very chic for a night out.

Refreshing Cleanser by Tata Harper

Tata Harper’s fresh grapefruit & aloe cleanser kicks off my evening beauty routine. It is perfect for dry skin and you only need a small amount. I really like the smell, and followed by Tata’s Hydrating Floral Essence, it’s perfect!

Ocean Mist Volume Shampoo by Sachajuan

For hair care, I’ve been using Sachajuan for over a year.
It is sulphate free, concentrated and smells divine. Perfect for coloured hair, the Ocean Mist Volume Shampoo protects the hair well. I’m never disappointed with this line, even the Shine Serum is great.

Tata Harper SuperNatural Facial

For the ultimate spa experience: Tata Harper’s SuperNatural Facial. To fully unwind, Tata’s facials and body treatments are a must. The enveloping maneuvers and calming scents take us elsewhere. There is nothing better than receiving a treatment to calm the body and mind.


NAOMI
Beauty & Fragrance Advisor

Vital Unifier by Nuori

This refreshing mist toner is the newest addition to my skincare routine. I love it because it is gentle and nourishing. Chock full of antioxidants, the Unifier revitalizes all skin types and offers a soothing feeling. I love that it can be used as a toner, and as a hydrating mist during and after makeup application. I love recommending this to clients who are looking to add a multi-functional toner to their routine.

Nurture Treatment by The Hair Routine

Hands down the yummiest hair treatment that can be used in-shower or as a treatment on dry hair to tame flyaways and prevent split ends. It nourishes the scalp and hair to yield unparalleled luminosity. This treatment can be used by both men and women who are interested in an easy-to-incorporate step for their haircare routine.


MICHELLE
E-Commerce Manager

Paradisi Extrait, Nectary EDP and Pony Boy Extrait by Jorum Studio

Jorum Studio looks great and smells even better. Paradisi, Nectary, Pony Boy… Impossible to choose just one!

The Discovery Kit by Dr. Barbara Sturm

Dr. Barbara Sturm’s skincare system is all about simple yet effective products. The Discovery Kit is the perfect introduction to the wonders of this brand!

Chiffon Styling Mousse by R+CO 

R+CO Chiffon gives hair the right amount of hold and movement that lasts. Added bonus: the bottle looks great on your countertop!

HydraFacial MD Signature

The HydraFacial provides immediate visible results: clear, plump skin and that youthful glow we all strive for!


STEVE
VP Operations

The Cream by Augustinus Bader

Simply put, this face cream moisturizes a lot without feeling heavy. It’s a refreshing, yet deeply hydrating luxury cream.

Misfit EDP by Arquiste

I love this decadent, elegant patchouli fragrance. It smells incredible and is a scent I get complimented on every time I wear it.

Scalp Therapy by Revivogen

If you are experiencing hair loss, this is a safe and effective topical solution for thinning hair, formulated with nature’s most powerful ingredients for thicker, fuller, and healthier hair.

The Men’s Facial by SkinCeuticals

This treatment is designed to renew your skin, clean up those blackheads and soothe razor burn and ingrown hairs. You will be able to take on the world after this treatment.


NATALIE
Marketing Assistant

Berlin EDP by Gallivant

Berlin is one of those scents that instantly transports me back to a summer vacation travelling Europe. If you are a fan of citrus, you have to give this one a sniff!

Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancing Serum by RapidLash

I love this product from RapidLash. I have been using this lash and brow-enhancing serum on and off for the last few years, and anytime I start using it again, my lashes and brows look more defined and elongated within a couple of weeks of daily use.

Phyto Corrective Gel by SkinCeuticals

The SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel is amazing if you have skin that is prone to redness. It feels instantly soothing and I really enjoy the calming effect it provides prior to applying my moisturizer.

Tata Harper Clarifying Facial

This a great treatment for those with congested and acne-prone skin in need of a total reset that won’t aggravate the skin.


KARINE
Marketing Director

Tri BioBotanical Revival Masque by Environ and Supreme Moisture Mask by Nuori

During winter, my skin needs both exfoliation to reveal its luminosity and hydration to give it a beautiful glow and dewy look. Once or twice a week, or before a night out or a special event, I like to combine Environ’s Revival Masque, also known as the “Facelift in a Jar” since it really helps improve the overall appearance of skin (it makes it smoother, firmer, more even, brighter and tighter) with Nuori’s Supreme Moisture Mask, which helps soothe, plump and hydrate the skin. It can even be left on overnight if desired.

Dallas Biotin Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner by R+CO

At the start of winter, because of drier air, having to wear a hat, etc., I was experiencing static hair. Having your hair stand up straight and be unmanageable is quite the annoyance. I had to adjust my hair routine with a shampoo and conditioner duo that is more moisturizing by R+CO. Since I prefer added volume, I opted for the Dallas collection. I also incorporate a mask routine from The Hair Routine to keep my hair as healthy as possible. My hair problems were instantly fixed.

Aventus for Her EDP by Creed

I recently fell in love with Aventus for Her by Creed, newly landed at Etiket. Although very different from my usual signature scent (Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules), this fresh and floral scent, inspired by some of the most powerful women in history (empresses and queens and heads of state who were Creed customers) and modern women who are both imposing, resolutely feminine and assertive, is most addictive.

HydraFacial MD and Intraceuticals Oxygen Treatment

During my last few spa visits, Ivy combined two of my favourite treatments: the HydraFacial MD and the Intraceuticals Oxygen Treatment for hydrated, plumped and luminous skin. Treat yourself to a facial to feel revitalized or before an event for an instant lift.


SIMON
Founder

Retexturing Activator and Triple Lipid Restore by SkinCeuticals

I am rediscovering the Retexturing Activator for my night time routine from SkinCeuticals – Cleanse, Tone, Retexturing Activator – another layer of toner and then Triple Lipid Restore. It exfoliates AND gives me that extra layer of hydration that I want in the cold dry winter.

Control Flexible Paste by R+CO

I am not someone who spends a lot of time on my hair. As they say, a little dab will do you and I can put it in damp hair and be done, or for some extra lift blow dry when I want to have that Harry Styles vibe. Harry may not think so though….

Original Vétiver EDP by Creed

This takes me back to when I was 16 and I would spray my brother’s Eau Sauvage on before sneaking into the disco – don’t forget, this was 1979! The Creed Vetiver is a beautiful fresh scent that holds its own; classic or not!

Tata Harper Treatments

It is always a Tata Harper facial – any one of them! From the minute it starts – breathing in the aromatic scents, the masks, until the final massage and layer of cream – I know I am going to come out relaxed and see a difference in my skin and in me!


ÉDOUARD
Beauty & Fragrance Advisor

V-STAT Advanced Repair Gel by Vivier

I use this healing gel from Vivier enriched with Polyamide-DAB when my skin is irritated by the use of retinol, or by extreme cold. I use it as the last step in my routine. It is also an effective treatment for chapped lips with the anti-aging benefits of Polyamide-DAB.

C&E Advanced with Hexylresorcinol and Silymarin by PCA Skin

PCA’s Pure Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum is our most concentrated serum with 20% ascorbic acid, 5% tocopherol (vitamin e) as well as hexylresorcinol which is a fantastic ingredient for pigmentation spots & irritations. Clinical studies have shown that 0.5% hexylresorcinol is as effective as 2% hydroquinone. The addition of silymarin makes it an excellent choice for acne-prone skin.

Multi-Bioactive Mela-Prep Lotion by Environ

I love using this as a toner after my cleanser. It targets pigmentation spots and acne scars. It combines the power of niacinamide for its sebum-regulating effects, alpha arbutin for its skin-lightening properties, and undecylenoyl phenylalanine, a derivative of phenylalanine, an important amino acid for slowing down melanin production.

Complete Anti-Pollution Spritz by Environ

I love using this anti-pollution spray to protect my skin from the harmful effects of the sun and urban pollution. Combining an algae complex including chlorella, as well as a vitamin C derivative.

The Etiket Team’s Fall Favourites

Fall is here! We asked our staff to pick their favourite product for the season and to explain why it's their go-to. Let's discover them together!

The crisp and cozy fall weather has arrived, and the team at Etiket is, of course, full of product recommendations for the seasonal change. Find out what staples make up some of our staff’s beauty, skincare and fragrance daily rituals.

“For me, the Superkind Radiance Mask from Tata Harper is a must. Twice a week, I exfoliate with the Regenerating Cleanser and then follow up with this famous mask that is oh-so-soothing. Then a 20-minute break of happiness… and an instant “wow” rejuvenating effect! The chamomile and lavender help calm my skin and the lactic acid helps improve the texture of my skin, providing a light exfoliation and glow. I love it!”
– MARIE-FRANCE, Boutique & Spa Director
”Imagine 5,000 years of ritual in a bottle? Natural and without artificial fragrance, a few drops of this oil blend that includes coconut, almond, sesame and avocado allow me to eliminate any trace of dry skin from first use. Nourishing but not greasy, it’s not sticky and the quick absorption is amazing. I love it so much that if I could bathe in it, I would. IMPOSSIBLE so I console myself with the Ayurvedic bath blend and enjoy the benefits of ancestral rituals to travel the world, all in my bathtub.”
– THOMAS, Boutique & Spa Assistant Manager
“This fall my new obsession is Agent Nateur’s holi (bright) Mask. The texture is so easy to apply and remove, a small amount goes a long way. I fit it into my nighttime routine a couple of times a week and wake up in the morning looking smooth, bright and refreshed!”
– JORDANNA, Holistic Aesthetician
“I really like berry, cranberry, and old rose shades for this fall.
Twilight Lane by RMS Beauty is really comfortable and provides good hydration with its lip balm texture. Ilia Beauty’s Balmy Tint in the colour Memoir is also a really beautiful shade for fall.

– VERONICA, Makeup Artist & Beauty Specialist
“Fall is a time of extra layers, but since I still want something clean and versatile, I’ve been really enjoying Etat Libre’s newest, The Ghost in the Shell. It’s like a fresh-out-of-the-shower fragrance with a little extra coziness and warmth. It’s comforting but not too heavy, original but effortless.”
– DAVID, Director of Fragrance
SkinCeuticals’ Epidermal Repair is my go-to to use alongside retinol treatments as it really helps restore compromised skin from treatments or even aggressive winter weather. My skin feels soothed and looks radiant.
– MICHELLE, E-Commerce Manager

“I started incorporating SkinMedica’s Lytera 2.0 into my routine because as the summer progressed, I recently noticed that hyperpigmentation spots had started to appear on my cheeks. I will be combining this brightening and pigmentation correcting product with BBL treatments for optimal results.”
– KARINE, Marketing Director
“Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Body Serum is an aromatherapeutic experience with every application. Not only does it smell wonderful, but it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft thanks to smoothing and exfoliating ingredients. Best part? It does not leave a sticky or greasy feeling and literally absorbs in seconds so I can go about my day without worry.”
– NATALIE, Marketing Assistant

I love the hydration that this creamy mask provides. It is formulated for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin and helps combat dull, dehydrated skin. It can be used both day and night to soothe and revitalize the skin.
– STEVE, VP Operations
“I love to do the Supreme-C Treatment from Nuori for the change of seasons to give my skin a boost. It helps with my hyperpigmentation and sun damage that I may have had even when wearing a sunscreen this summer. It also helps to bring my skin back to life and gets my glow on! I like the addition of Hyaluronic Acid and Ferulic Acid which helps to complete the treatment.”

Mahoni Manuka Honey
Skin Care

Mahoni: New Brand at Etiket

We are excited that Mahoni has arrived at Etiket! Mahoni is all about Manuka honey, an active ingredient with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Whether you are looking for a remedy for common skincare concerns or to soothe an internal malaise, Mahoni will come to the rescue.

While most honey is known to have antimicrobial and soothing benefits, manuka honey is known for its particularly pronounced medicinal benefits.

WHAT IS MANUKA HONEY?

Firstly, it comes from manuka flowers. Manuka is a bush in the myrtle family, native to New Zealand and southeast Australia. Monofloral manuka honey (meaning honey made by bees foraging exclusively on manuka flowers) contains uniquely high levels of methylglyoxal, a chemical known to be antimicrobial, tissue healing, and digestion-enhancing. The properties of this honey are so renowned that all New Zealand manuka honey made for export must be independently tested for purity and potency. After testing every batch twice for authenticity by specialized labs in Germany and New Zealand, they are assigned an “MGO” rating to attest to the concentration of their star ingredient. Mahoni products use manuka honey certified at two different methylglyoxal levels: 100 MGO (average potency and safe for daily use) and 600 MGO (high potency and safe for short-term use).

Mahoni’s Manuka Honey

One of the first things you’ll notice about this honey is its modest levels of sweetness. Manuka honey is not a sugar bomb — instead, subtle grains of sugar intermingle with rustic woody and citrusy aromas, with a refreshing herbaceous finish that reminds us a bit of all-natural root beer. It’s complex, balanced and delicious, and when applied topically, noticeably lacks grocery-store honey’s stubborn gummy stickiness. 

Manuka honey is a great example of a naturally-occurring substance that, as if by magic, contains heaps of stuff that our skin (and entire bodies) love. Whether you’re new to holistic beauty or have been following an inside-out wellness philosophy for years, Mahoni’s manuka products are a potent (and delicious) addition to your routine. 

YOUR GO-TO NATURAL REMEDIES

Skin Remedy

You’ll want to keep Skin Remedy on hand everywhere you go! This skincare travel essential nurtures the lips and skin through its naturally high concentrations of methylglyoxal (600 MGO). For natural treatment of sensitive skin, manuka honey helps maintain clear skin by reducing blemishes and nurturing irritations, such as easing the symptoms of cold sores. The honey’s antibacterial qualities can help reduce bacteria growth that can inflame the pores. Skin Remedy coats, seals and protects the skin and is suitable for acute irritations. To use, apply to the blemished or irritated area using your finger and leave it on as long as possible to allow the methylglyoxal to unfold. 

Daily Boost

Stick to your dedicated health and beauty regimen and boost it with a daily spoonful of this manuka honey. Perfect for everyday use, this product has a moderate level of methylglyoxal (100 MGO). It can be eaten purely for an added sweetness by adding it to your breakfast such as on toast, in yogurt and oatmeal, poured into teas and smoothies or used as (or added into) a face or hair mask. You can even eat this delicious healing honey by the spoonful! Daily Boost will quickly become a staple that you can treat your body with daily, both inside and out. The stylish and large environmentally friendly and sustainable glass jar will also add a nice touch to your kitchen counter.

Inner Remedy

Nurture your throat, stomach and bowel with this strong concentration of manuka honey (600 MGO) which comes conveniently packaged with twelve sachets, making them sanitary and great for travelling. The Inner Remedy sachets are great to have on the go to soothe and ease acute irritations, from a sore throat to stomach upset. To use, bend the sachet in the middle, squeeze and swallow the honey. For best results, it is recommended not to eat or drink 15 minutes after to allow the methylglyoxal to unfold. Experience this pure remedy for your insides to help maintain a healthy gut, ease digestive discomfort and treat throat irritations.

The Complete Set Bundle

Intrigued by the brand but can’t decide which product to try?
Be prepared for whatever life throws at you on the daily with The Complete Set Bundle to experience all the benefits that manuka honey has to offer, both inside and out. The set includes all products from the daily and acute ranges for ultimate wellness: Daily Boost, Skin Remedy and Inner Remedy.

Pai Skincare's Impossible Glow drops

Three Ways to Use the Impossible Glow Drops

Have you heard of Pai Skincare's Impossible Glow Drops? Learn how to customize this liquid highlighter to get your glow in time for summer!

Have you tried the Impossible Glow drops from Pai Skincare? The brand first launched this skincare-makeup hybrid product back in 2021. It was so well received that Pai decided to launch two new shades: Champagne and Rose Gold. These highlighters offer a lit-from-within glow in just a few drops. With summer just around the corner, and bronzed, glowing skin making its comeback, we’ve decided to share with you three ways to use the Impossible Glow drops.

1.  For subtle radiance, add one drop to your daily moisturizer or SPF.

2. For a more intense glow, massage one to two drops directly onto skin.

3. For a lit-from-within highlight, gently dab on the high points of the face and body.

Pro tip: add a few drops to your body lotion and apply to the legs, shoulders and collarbone for an irresistible glow.

Which shade is best for me?

Although all shades work for all skin tones, you may be wondering which one would complement your skin tone the best. If that’s the case, here are Pai Skincare’s suggestions:

  • If your skin has pink undertones, you might prefer the Rose Gold shade.
  • If your skin has more yellow undertones, you might prefer the Champagne shade.
  • If you’re looking for a warm, sunkissed glow, go for the original shade: Bronze.

Pai’s pro tip? Experiment! All shades work for all skin tones – it’s all about finding the right application to create the effect you’re after.

SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR ROSACEA-PRONE SKIN
Skin Care

Skincare Products for Rosacea-Prone Skin

A skincare routine for rosacea-prone skin...

Did you know that April is considered Rosacea Month?

If you or someone you know suffers from Rosacea, you know how difficult it can be to manage it. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this skin condition, it is characterized by redness on the face, small dilated blood vessels, pustules and swelling. Rosacea affects all ages and more than 3 million people in Canada alone.

It is not known what causes rosacea, and there is currently no cure. There are, however, products that can help manage this condition over time. We asked our Holistic Aesthetician Jordanna to share the products she recommends to her clients for calming rosacea-prone skin.


I always tell my clients to look at their lifestyle habits; do certain foods create more redness and sensitivity (red wine, spicy food, diary, sugar, etc.)? Hot showers and saunas can also trigger rosacea. 


For people with a compromised skin barrier, skin care should be gentle and soothing to calm down the inflammation. Face washing should be done outside of the shower using a sensitive skin cloth and tepid water. When washing your face in the shower, the pressure is often too hard and the temperature too hot!

Here are some products I recommend to promote a healthy skin barrier, overtime strengthening the skin and creating skin longevity. 

CLEANSERS

The first step is the most important one, cleansing the skin. Look for cleansers that are gentle and hydrating, this will balance the PH of the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Tata Harper’s SuperKind Softening Cleanser has a soothing effect and leaves the skin hydrated and calm. This cleanser can be used morning and night to jump start your skincare routine. 

TONER/ESSENCE/MIST

One of the most common questions I get is, “do I need to use a toner (aka essence, mist, tonic, etc.)?” ABSOLUTELY! A toner will once balance your PH (so you’re not too acidic and too alkaline) and prepare the skin to receive the following products and keep them locked in. Pai Skincare’s Century Flower Lotus & Hyaluronic Acid Barrier Support Mist is a best seller amongst those with sensitive skin and even those without. The smell is subtle and fresh, this product helps calm and hydrate post-cleanse. 

EXFOLIANTS

Most people who have rosacea are too sensitive for a physical exfoliant (scrubs), which is why I recommend opting for a chemical one. When looking for chemical exfoliants, it is better to use ones that contain AHAs to help renew and regenerate the skin. Tata Harper SuperKind Radiance Mask is a mask that exfoliates the skin gently, once again helping strengthen the skin barrier. You can use this product twice a week to see a noticeable difference in reduced redness and overall glow.

OILS

Using oils on the skin is highly recommended to help balance your skin’s oil production. Whether you’re dry, oily or dehydrated, there is a face oil for you. The Light Fantastic by Pai Skincare is a morning and night time oil made with ceramides to help strengthen the skin. This light odourless oil is best for sensitive and reactive skin, making it a must as your last step in your routine. 

SUNSCREEN

As previously mentioned, sun exposure can trigger rosacea. Everyone needs to be using a good sunscreen, no matter where you live or what time of year it is. Colorescience’s All Calm SPF 50 is a great way to treat the rosacea, balance complexion and protect the skin from environmental damage. For those who are looking for a lighter transparent sunscreen, try Coola’s Fragrance Free Classic Face SPF 50

TREATMENTS

Tata Harper’s SuperKind facial is specifically created for those with rosacea and sensitive skin. During the treatment, we use the entire Tata Harper Superkind line, reflexology and gua sha spoon lymphatic draining massage to bring life back to the skin.
