Plus, there’s a new Canadian beauty brand on the scene.
Glossier is here, Canada!
We know this brand needs no introduction so we’ll get right to the good part: Glossier has officially made its Canadian debut! You can finally shop their cult-loved collection of products, including the popular Cloud Paint Gel Cream Blush and pink pepper-scented Glossier You fragrance, exclusively at Sephora.ca and in select stores across the country.

Dove’s refillable deodorant drops in Canada
The world of deodorant is surprisingly complex and full of decisions to be made. Scented or unscented? Spray or roll on?

New to Canada, the brand’s refillable deodorants are made with an aluminum-free formula and come stocked with two refills stored in a minimalist case that slides into any purse for easy on-the-go use. Plus, they’re made of 96 per cent recycled plastic. This new launch sets Dove on the right track to reaching their goal of using no virgin plastics, and instead selling products that are made from 100 per cent post-consumer recycled plastics or can be reused or refilled exclusively by 2025.
