It had been a while since I had heard about Karine Joncas. The Quebec brand reappeared in my bathroom during the summer, and I found myself reaching for its Youth Activating Gel every night—or almost—in my beauty drawer. Its gel texture is wonderful: it melts into the skin and gives you the feeling of an instant, weightless collagen boost. Because of my busy schedule and my short nights, the product not only helps to firm and smooth my skin, but it also gives it a boost of radiance when I wake up in the morning. A miracle gel that I don’t intend to part with anytime soon.
Karine Joncas Youth Activating Gel with Collagen, $50 at Brunet and online.
