1. STOÜT FACE CARE INC. Daily SPF Cream, $35
You always come back to a classic. We showcased this amazing SPF cream in a 2017 collection and the response was overwhelming. Its advanced combination of moisturizers, antioxidants and UV protection had us clamouring for more. It’s the perfect complement to a season of adventure: a daily barrier to protect your skin from aging rays and harmful pollutants, all the while refreshing with menthol, evening primrose and jojoba oils.
2. HAUPY’S Original Beaver Rub Seasoning, $12
Score major points on the grill this season with some of the country’s finest seasoning. Perfect for steak, poultry and other favourites at the backyard cookout (or even as the base for a tangy marinade), Kelowna’s Haupy’s Beaver Rub is a mildly spicy combination of paprika, garlic, cinnamon and other flavours. A “true Canadian taste,” it’s a puck that provides some punch–and is low in sodium to boot. Sprinkle on meat, allow to soak in for two to 24 hours and always remember to rub responsibly!
3. SCENTUALS Invigorate Purifying Facial Toner, $29
This summer, when you’re busy sweating and sunning, don’t forget that your skin could use a little extra care. Purify and rejuvenate your mug after long days outdoors with this refreshing facial toner from our friends at Scentuals. It’s perfect for an alcohol-free cleanse, balancing your skin’s natural pH with essential oils of witch hazel and chamomile to soothe as well as organic aloe to heal.
4. WALTER'S SHOE CARE Outsole Scrub, $10
Established in 1893 and still family-run and Canadian- owned, Walter’s Shoe Care products are both effective and affordable. This outsole scrub is perfect for summer kicks, with a fast–and truly brightening—fix. To freshen up your look, simply press the applicator to the outsole of your favourite shoes, release the cleaner and brush gently to remove dirt and stains. Use a damp cloth to wipe off excess gel. Do not use on suede or nubuck.
5. STRIPPED WAX BAR Fresh Nuts Deodorizing Spray, $16
Being active this season can mean being sweaty, and packed calendars often demand the need to freshen up in a flash. Vancouver’s Stripped Wax Bar covers all the bases with this pH balanced deodorizing spray. Formulated with the scents of bergamont and sage, while also offering the soothing benefits of calendula and allantoin, it’s a cooling treat for–you guessed it!–down there.
6. AVVENTURA OUTDOORS Lightweight Hammock, $45
Our favourite Canadian-based adventure gear providers have your comfort in mind, whether you’re out in the woods, up on a mountaintop or just lounging in the backyard. Enjoy a summer siesta with this ripstop nylon hammock, featuring easy-to-use steel carabiners. Incredibly lightweight, it packs up into a built-in stuff sack and comes with durable cords for hanging.
