2 Canadian Beauty Brands You Need To Add To Your Collection

Here’s what you need to know about the latest Canadian beauty brands to make their presence felt in the 852.

There’s no shortage of well-loved Canadian exports available in Hong Kong (we’re looking at you Lululemon, Herschel and Roots) so we’re very excited to announce that two more of the country’s much-loved brands have now burst onto the beauty scene in Hong Kong: PURA Botanicals and My Daughter Fragrances. And trust us when we say, you’re going to want to be in the know!

PURA Botanicals is an eco-lux skincare company that harnesses the power of plant-based ingredients. With a motto of “celestial beauty without sacrifice”, it ticks numerous boxes for us. It’s clean, green, cruelty free, smells divine and is only handcrafted in small batches…what’s not to love? The best bit is you can now pick it up at all A Beauty Bar locations in Hong Kong (Macau ladies you’ve not been forgotten, you can get its goodies from Forever Young, Still Natural Organic Shop and Rainbow).

There are obviously plenty of products in this range that have caught our eye, but it’s the brand’s signature overnight mask collection we’re most excited about trying, especially the Ultra Hydrating Watermelon version ($630). It contains watermelon extract for brightening, and neroli to improve elasticity and promote skin cell renewal (something tells us we’ll be using this several times a week!).

So now you’ve got your skincare purchases sorted, let’s move onto scent! We want to introduce you to My Daughter Fragrances (which are now available from INUF in Hong Kong). You know that something formulated in the world capital of perfume (Grasse in France) is going to be good. These phathalte-free fragrances focus on using pristine, raw materials (each one is hand cured, filtered and poured in small batches). The ethos behind this company is to make the whole perfume-buying process beautiful..beginning with how it’s made, all the way through to how it makes the wearer feel. We love that this niche fragrance house has managed to become big by staying small and true to its roots.

We’ll be purchasing the Assorted Minis Gift Set ($695). It includes My Daughter’s four signature fragrances (Bloom 23, Always Loved, My Wild and Joyful) in handy 10ml sizes, perfect for keeping in your handbag. The biggest issue you’ll have is deciding which of these unique scents is your favourite, so this is a great way to try them all. At the moment it’s Joyful (which has notes of jasmine, rose, orange blossom and grapefruit) that gets our vote.

Remember you heard it here first!
