Summer Vacations in Canada: Our Essentials

July 31, 2020


Vacation essentials

Ahhhhh, summer! The favourite season of so many Canadians. This year, as the current situation is forcing us to rethink the way we travel, many are taking the opportunity to visit the four corners of our wonderful country during their time off. Whether camping, at the cottage or in a hotel, we want a simplified, uncompromising routine for beautiful, glowing skin!

In our suitcase, we pack:

During our vacations, we proudly wear Canadian brands.

Maxi dress, Anna Kosturova (Vancouver based), $320
Tote bag, AI (Toronto based), $175
Sandals, Bego (Montreal based), $60 (pineapple leather, WOW!)
Bucket hat, Parkhyrst (Toronto based), $48
One-piece Bathing Suit, Everyday Sunday (Montréal based), $100
Bathing Suit Kit, Beth Richards (Vancouver based) $235
Sunglasses, BonLook (Montreal based), $179
Sport bottle, Lululemon (Vancouver based), $44

In our beauty bag, we bring:

The Protocol 5 Essentials box set

Being in itself a complete set, this protocol box is ideal for transportation and therefore ideal for holidays. No question of abandoning good habits for a glowing healthy complexion, even on vacation.

The set contains:

Ellagic C+ Serum
Your new best friend for depigmenting and brightening the complexion, while diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and improving skin elasticity: hello, softened, smoothed and radiant skin! As a bonus, it improves your skin’s natural defenses against the sun’s rays.

Retinol 0.5% Serum
This repairing serum stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It smoothes the surface of the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation spots and blemishes.

Youth Solution Anti-Aging Cream
Protecting against the signs of premature aging, this firming cream stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and improves skin hydration. The result: perfectly hydrated skin that is softer, firmer and younger looking.

Micro Pearl
This exfoliator moisturizes, soothes and tones the skin while deep cleansing for refined skin texture and healthier, more radiant skin. Its gentle exfoliation helps to remove impurities, excess oil and sweat from the skin during hot, humid weather.

SPF 50 Sunscreen


Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 tinted

Necessary every day, but essential on vacation, sunscreen is the first item you slip into your kit.

We use Functionalab Mineral Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50 for its ultra-light texture and matte finish! Its unique combination of natural mineral pigments creates a universal shade that suits all skin tones and types, even those with sun allergies or photosensitivity. We skip the foundation and wear this product instead, since it blurs imperfections and is 100% mineral and has a broad-spectrum SPF 50 that will protect the skin from photodamage during our activities.


Colorescience® Hydrating Mist

To prevent dehydration and maintain luminous skin wherever we go, Colorescience® Hydrating Mist will be our best ally. Simply spray it on your face throughout the day to instantly refresh yourself. Don’t worry if you wear makeup, the mist will help keep it in place!



If you decide to wear makeup, keep it simple and natural! We like to take advantage of the holidays to give our skin a break from the stress of “breathing”.

Colorscience® Mascara

Whether our vacation day begins with a shopping trip and ends on a patio or whether it’s a mountain hike followed by an intense canoe ride, we want a mascara that lasts throughout our activities. We all know that the “raccoon” look is out of fashion! Lash by lash, Colorescience® mascara gives length and density, while being water resistant.


Colorescience® EnviroScreenTM Mineral Powder

The EnviroScreenTM SPF 50 is a mineral powder sunscreen that offers complete protection in a single application, thanks to its brush applicator tip. Ideal for travelling, this protection protects against UVA/UVB rays as well as pollution and other environmental aggressors.


Make-up Remover!

You can remove your make-up with Functionalab’s Micellar Solution, which does not require rinsing: practical, especially on holiday! This soap- and alcohol-free cleanser instantly revives and refreshes the skin. It removes impurities from the surface of the skin without any irritation and even dissolves water-repellent make-up. This gentle solution is suitable for even the most sensitive skin and the delicate eye area. As a bonus, the physiological pH of this Micellar Solution also makes it an excellent toner. Cleanse and tone your skin in a single step, what could be simpler, especially when you’re on vacation!
