Scalp Revival Rosemary Pre-Wash Scalp and Hair Oil

Article content

They say: A scalp replenishing oil formulated with rosemary, castor and tea tree oils to quench and soothe the scalp while also boosting shine.

We say: Suitable for most hair types (fine to thick and straight to wavy), our tester was excited to try this buzzy prewash treatment on her fine, colour-processed hair. Testing both options by leaving it on as an overnight treatment as well as using it as a 20-minute blast before shampooing, she found the results to be “excellent” both ways. Hair felt smoother and her scalp felt refreshed.

Grown Alchemist Restorative Body Cream.

Grown Alchemist 

Restorative Body Cream

They say: A hydrating body cream that uses plant-based ingredients such as Shea butter, and jojoba and mandarin oils, to nourish and hydrate skin. The new-to-Canada cream is joined by an Energize Body Cleanser for a full-body experience.

We say: From the sleek packaging to the skin-smoothing formula, this body cream provides a gender-neutral, spa like treat at home. A little of the cream goes a long way, smoothing over skin nicely to reveal more hydrated skin with a non-greasy feel.

Alphascience HA Booster Serum .


HA Booster Serum 

They say: A facial serum featuring organic silicium and hyaluronic acid, along with vegetal taurine, to hydrate and smooth skin.

We say: Our tester, a diehard serum fan, subbed this one in for her go-to formula. One to two drops covered the face and neck nicely, providing skin with an instant drink. The serum played nice with other skin-care salves and, with use, she reports her skin appeared more plump and “youthful.”
