Summer essentials you can feel good about from Tarte, Green Beaver and Native!

Keep your foundation from sliding off your face and look less shiny:
Tarte Shape Tape Setting Powder - $41 - a loose powder that absorbs oil and mattifies as it diffuses light for radiant-looking skin while blurring fine lines and imperfections and preventing flashback. The netted sifter dispenses the perfect amount of powder and eliminates mess -  and it even comes with a puff if you like that kind of thing (I prefer my brush). The formula includes Amazonian Clay - to absorb excess oil; Vitamin C - to brighten; and Mineral Pigments - to blur. It even comes in a Translucent Tan-Deep shade if you want to add some colour!
Like to travel with your powder? It also comes in a perfectly portable 4g mini size for $18.

Available at Sephora stores across Canada and online at sephora.ca and tartecosmetics.com.
Sun protection that's good for your skin:
Green Beaver Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 - 90ml - $24.99 - a 100% natural mineral sunscreen that is hypoallergenic, non-greasy and hydrates and nourishes skin, like a lotion, so not only does it protect skin from the sun, it also makes it better! The best part is the non-whitening formula infused with Canadian-grown organic raspberry extract which is rich in natural antioxidants that is water and sweat resistant up to 80 minutes and reef friendly.
Available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada and online at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
Summer doesn't have to stink:
Native Deodorant - 75g - $18.99 - with an aluminum-free formula containing naturally derived ingredients, with effective long-lasting odour protection and some really nice scents including Lavender & Rose; coconut & Vanilla; Cucumber & Mint; Eucalyptus & Mint; and Citrus & Herbal Musk. I found the price a little scary at first but if I think of how many terrible smelling natural deodorants that I have tried (and not worked) - a bit extra for one that does is worth it!

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada and online at shoppersdrugmart.ca.

The last 2 products are part of an excellent new initiative: Thoughtful Choices at Shoppers Drug Mart - which is a curated range of products meant to help make it easier for you to shop consciously. All products with this seal are (at a minimum): Cruelty-free; Paraben, phthalate, SLS/SLES, formaldehyde, BPA & aluminum salts-free; and mindful of our planet. Just look for the Thoughtful Choices seal when you shop to discover all of them! 
BTW, I feel like if Shoppers carried Tarte, due to the brands philosophies and ingredient non-no's, it would also qualify for that program - so you can feel good about that purchase too!
