As per typical Canadian weather, what I love to wear in the summer doesn’t always work as well during the winter months. However, this is not the case in terms of my daily beauty product lineup. After a recent scan over my inventory, with the exception of a few seasonal additions, it turns out that almost all of my favourite beauty products are in fact evergreen and are worn throughout the year.
As such, I have gone into a bit of a deep dive in terms of my favourite products that I am currently loving and have recommended to friends and family. You may recall some of my favourites mentioned in past blog posts.
Whether you are shopping Sephora’s latest savings event or need to freshen up your own inventory, from skincare to fragrances, I’m sharing the essentials that I absolutely must on hand for spring, summer, fall, and winter.
Below you will find everything categorized under:
Consider this as my master shopping list for evergreen beauty essentials that I purchase at Sephora all through the year.
Also, because I am super paranoid about what goes on my skin, you can rest assured that each and every item listed under SKINCARE, MAKEUP, HAIR, and BODY is free of parabens and/or categorized as a clean product.
I started using this purifying gel cleanser, to help with my temporary acne situation. I have been loving it! The cleanser has a great lather and a very fresh scent. Sometimes I will switch things up with my oil based cleanser (recommended by my naturopath) in the mornings.
This light exfoliation cleanser, that I keep in the shower, has also been great.
This unconventional exfoliator was recommended to me for removing fine lines (bla!) and so far it’s lived up to the hype.
I also keep this deep exfoliating cleaner in the shower and also use it about 1-2 times a week
I have also been loving this Caudalie toner since adding it to my skincare rotation.
I just started using this night moisturizer with retinol (alternative) benefits and so far I’ve been really pleased with it. My bestie is obsessed with her cream moisturizer from LaNeige and I kind of want to try it too.
Seconds after discovering lines on my forehead, within months of turning 30, I went on a retinol deep dive and started with this bakuchiol + peptides serum. It’s a lot less abrasive and would recommend as a first step if you have sensitive skin. I just started using this Caudalie retinol alternative with the night cream and I have already been seeing slight results.
The Tatcha serum also looks like a great retinol alternative option.
Acne & Scarring
This serum really helps fade out those stubborn scars and spots that need to go away.
Your lips need to be exfoliated too… trust me they will thank you.
My trusted sources have also given me raving recommendations about the LANEIGE ones.
A primer may not be a very glamourous purchase, but it is an essential one. I just recently started using this Too Faced one that was recommended. I also have heard great things about the Smashbox primer.
I have also brought back the Too Faced (SWAN) foundation to my vanity for days when I need extra coverage.
I keep trying new concealers but always end up coming back to this one (AFFOGATO)… it’s just so good.
If you’re also not a fan of a heavy blush look, then you too may love this blurring powder blush (HEAD IN THE CLOUDS)
… if you prefer a cream blush, I’d suggest Merit’s clean and subtle cream option (SOFT PEACH).
As I absolutely must always have this (EBONY) eyebrow pencil on hand, it truly is one of my evergreen beauty essentials.
I rarely wear eyeliner (ZERO or SMOKE) but when I do it has to be waterproof
Morning or night, the neutral shades in this eyeshadow palette have you covered.
Setting Powder & Spray
One of my besties swears by this Laura Mercier one.
… if you prefer a pressed setting powder
I have lost count of how many times I have recommended this lip treatment. I also really love this lighter honey one from Farmacy. Because it doesn’t melt or freeze, I keep an Ilia lip balm in my car throughout the year.
Shampoo & Conditioner
Whether or not you have extensions, this detangler offers a little extra help.
That glossy hair mask look in less than 30 seconds… and no I’m not kidding.
A dual heat protectant and anti-frizz spray, this has been my go-to for protecting my hair from all of my hot styling tools for quite some time.
An everyday hairspray that I love to use for keeping soft curls intact after curling and lightly brushing them out. I bring out this hairspray for when I need an extra long lasting hold for events and occasions.
Bath & Body
Wash and lightly exfoliate with this multitasking body soap bar.
This lavender bubble bath is divine.
I recently bought this cream to help counteract any uninvited cellulite.
A powdery floral that will work for each and every season.
I feel like this fragrance makes everything seem just a bit sweeter.
While this is a warm floral scent, it is pleasantly light.
I suppose this is technically a spring and summer scent, but that hasn’t stopped me from wearing it all year long
A sweet and classic floral scent that I keep at my office desk.
Simple and endearing, this evergreen fragrance will add a little extra beauty to your day all through the year.
