Our Favourite Canadian Beauty Products
While Canada Day celebrations may be a bit quieter this year, we feel prouder than ever to carry products from so many Canadian makers in our shops.
Many of us have been trying to spend our dollars locally to ensure that the businesses we love will make it through these uncertain times. With that in mind, we decided to make a list of some of our favourite products made by Canadian businesses. What better way to celebrate Canada than to treat yourself to some goodies made close to home?
We wish you all a healthy and safe Canada Day and thank you for your continued support of small local businesses like ours.
