Best beauty tool:

The Beauty Blender takes the cake on this one.  Erin, Holly, Joc and Karyn are all dedicated BB fans.


Get Glowing: Best skin fix - think sheet masks, hydrating serums and exfoliating treatments

Erin: green tea & charcoal detox mud mask from Body Shop, and the Rose Plumping mask from Body shop

Joc: Boscia black mask 

Karyn: ZO skincare - especially their exfoliating polish

Kelsi: First Aid Beauty FAB Facial Radiance Pads- exfoliates, tones, and brightens

Holly: Poetic Blend timeless oil, Maskeraide sheet masks, Skin Medica 

Kassy: My holy grail skincare product. The often immigrated but never duplicated.... La Mer soft cream. I will go to my grave using this moisturizer .


Hair goals: Best hot tool 

Joc: Chi and T3

Karyn: I love my T3 dryer and Sultra wand iron

Kelsi: Nume classic curling wand 32mm- I use it everyday!

Kassy: My T3 iron. I’ve collected 6 attachments which give me every style (traditional clamp iron or wand) and every size I could ever need! And only one base to plug in which is a major bonus *

Best styling product/hair treatment:

Joc: Kevin Murphy fresh hair 

Karyn: Kerastase Fluidissime is my daily go-to.  It’s weightless and adds much needed moisture and shine while Olaplex Hair Perfector smoothes and strengthens.

Kelsi: Best styling product: Paul Mitchell Extra Body Daily Boost- lifts my roots for more body! I use it in wet hair before I blow dry. Otherwise my hair is super limp and flat.

Molly: Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair and Doo Over is so good!


Soft and Smooth: Best body treatment (think scrubs, lotions, repair cream) 

Joc: hempz

Karyn: Coconut oil.  I use it as an all over lotion straight out of the shower.  LaLicious scrubs are heavenly too.

Holly: Lalicious body scrub & lotions 

Kassy: The Glossier Body Hero duo. The cleanser is an oil which gives me such smooth glowy skin and the moisturizer is so rich, it keeps scaly winter skin at bay!


Fake it til you Make it: Our most beloved (and believable) self-tanners

Erin: St Tropez foam tanner!!!!

Joc: red carpet kolour 

Karyn: St Tropez self-tanning mouse - the perfect shade of sun-kissed

Holly: St tropez and RCK ( red carpet kolour ) *


To finish things off and send you on your way to a beauty overhaul, we’re sharing some Beauty Hacks that truly save.

Kelsi: Use your facial exfoliator on your lips to keep them super kissable. If you need an extra scrub down, rub your toothbrush along your kisser too! Then put a super moisturizing lip balm on. I love FAB Intensive Lip Balm.

Kassy: If using a traditional liquid foundation and you’d like to thin it out a bit and give yourself a glow: add a drop or two of your favourite facial oil into a pump of foundation!

Karyn: Coconut oil - my makeshift lip gloss, hands-down the best moisturizer, mixed with sugar for a silky scrub...  I even pop it in my coffee.  Nothing like natural.
