One candle even smells like Drake.
Drake’s Better World Fragrance House touched down in Shoppers Drug Mart
Scent is deeply valued by Drake. So much so that it’s used while he’s travelling the world to provide a sense of familiarity and comfort. Now, you can choose from the five scents of Better World Fragrance House, Drake’s own brand of aromatic candles that are based on his personal memories. The home goods — from woody and floral to musky and gourmand — are currently available at 200 Shoppers Drugs Marts across the country for a limited time. What’s more, they all come with a gold marker to customize a sweet message.

After already selling out twice in Canada, Queen Rih’s Fenty Eau de Parfum is being restocked.

She even personally selected each ingredient and designed the one-of-a-kind scent alongside world-renowned LVMH Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier. Pre-sale started on April 27 at FentyBeauty.com, and opens to the general public next week.
The Dove Self-Esteem Project launches the #DetoxYourFeed campaign
New research by the Dove Self-Esteem Project proves that half of Canadian teen girls are spending more time online than they are in person with their friends. And with social media feeds filled with beauty advice, one in two girls say that the toxicity of it all causes low self-esteem.
After years of championing wider definitions of beauty and trying to make social media a safer space, the Dove project has launched a new campaign: #DetoxYourFeed. It went live this week with the goal of empowering teens to define their own beauty standards and choose their own influences. Through thoughtful films and educational packages for parents, the campaign highlights how conversations between parents, caregivers and teens (about the dangers of toxic beauty advice) are so important in navigating these challenges.
