Dave’s “Summer Beauty All-Stars” on Cityline

What are the best-performing beauty and fragrance products for hot summer weather? I investigated and brought my “Summer Beauty All-Stars” to Cityline.

Here are nine products worth checking out this summer:

Global summer skincare trend: hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most important ingredients in skincare. It’s a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin that helps bind water to collagen trapping it and helping plump up your skin and keep hair hydrated. It can hold 1000x its weight in water

L’Oreal Paris Hyaluron Plump 72H Moisture Plump Serum

Tame dry hair with this moisture plump serum that instantly replenishes hair with moisture and increases fibre diameter by 9% with every use. It’s ideal to use during hot summer days when intense sunlight can drain hair of precious moisture. Available at Shoppers Drug mart

L’Oreal Paris Hyaluron Plump 72H Moisture Hydration Shampoo

This rehydrating shampoo instantly coats the cuticles and fills hair with 72H of moisture with no weighdown that is up to 10x more hydrated. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart

L’Oreal Paris Hyaluron Plump 72H Moisture Hydration Conditioner

This intensive hydrating conditioner boosts moisture levels in hair and is designed to work synergistically with the shampoo and serum. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart

Skin cancer cases are on the rise globally as are skin-aging effects like dark spots, premature fine lines and sagging.

Ombrelle Sensitive Expert Body Lotion SPF 60, $19.99

Ombrelle Ultra Light Advanced Face Lotion SPF 60, $16.99

Ombrelle Kids Wet’n Protect Sunscreen SPF 60, $18.98

This hypoallergenic sunscreen is specially formulated and tested for sensitive skin. It offers excellent broadspectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Best yet, it doesn’t clog pores and allows skin to breathe. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart

Choose your sunscreen based on activity-specific formulations. For example, choose waterproof for water sports, sweat proof for cycling our outdoor volleyball,

Apply sunscreen under your clothes to avoid a stripe of sunburn.

Montblanc Legend Red, $120

Montblanc Legend Red is an energizing aromatic-woody scent for him that blends notes of blood orange, sage and mahogany woods. The sage contributes a strongly aromatic character and balances the freshness of the orange and the masculinity of the woods.

Ingredients: blood orange, sage, mahogany woods. Available at shoppersdrugmart.ca

    Hyaluronic Acid is one of my favorite skincare ingredients, but I haven’t taken advantage of it in haircare. I need to look into the L’Oréal Paris Hyaluron Plump 72H line!

    All such great summer picks, Dave!! My faves are the Origins Ginzing Tinted Moisturizer and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Summer 2022 Love Pour Femme. Light Blue is the PERFECT summer scent! And so many days during the summer, the only product besides SPF I put on is perfume! I sweat A LOT, and I work very hard. That combo makes for a very sweaty me! Any product that can help remedy that is a winner in my book. So that’s one reason I like my perfume so strong. It has to hold up against, well, me!! But there are a ton of other amazing products in these picks that are just brilliant! Those Bridgerton palettes are GORGEOUS!! So fine!! All of these are really great picks, Dave! Thanks!! xoxoJJ

    Oh the Origins Ginzing SPF 40 energy-boosted tinted Moisturizer sounds amazing! Such a great list of products! The Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser is such a great, timeless & classic cleanser suited for all skin types/all ages! One of my all time favorites & the very first prestigious cleanser I ever purchased when I was 20 from Sephora! Back then there was no Ulta & I had to drive 2 hours to Atlanta to get to Sephora AR Lenox Mall! Oh the memories! Stepping into Sephora for the first time in 1999, I felt like a child on Christmas Day! Thank you as always Dave for sharing these great summer products! I wish I could try them all! So lovely! @BoydBess

    I watched this video and you convinced me to pick up Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Love Eau De Toilette — it is a perfect summer scent! If you like citrusy scents, you’ll love this one! It smells like a freshly squeezed grapefruit and gives me a summertime feel. The scent type says citrus/woodsy but it smells more citrusy to me than woodsy.

    The idea of Ombrelle Sensitive Expert Body Lotion just blew my mind a little bit. It not only provides an SPF 60 – which is obviously great, but the fact that it’s an actual lotion intrigues me a whole lot. I think I’d def try that one out. I bet my dry skin would enjoy it.
