AVÈNE Hydrance Rich Holiday Gift Set

Dehydrated skin lacks water and appears dull, with uneven texture and fine, dry surface lines. Hydrance helps prevent water evaporation from the skin, revealing a smoother and more luminous complexion.

The gift set includes:

  • Hydrance Rich Hydrating Cream – 40ml
  • 3-in-1 Makeup Remover – 100ml
  • Thermal Spring Water – 50ml
  • TriXera Lotion – 10ml

The long-lasting hydration formula is enriched in shea butter, and offers a creamy texture. In addition, its hydrating ingredients increase the absorption and diffusion of Avène Thermal Spring Water and limit water loss. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, Jean Coutu, and other pharmacies. $38.00 at Avene.

The Life Lucy Knew by Karma Brown

After hitting her head, Lucy Sparks awakens in the hospital to a shocking revelation: the man she’s known and loved for years-the man she recently married-is not actually her husband. In fact, they haven’t even spoken since their breakup four years earlier. The happily-ever-after she remembers in vivid detail-right down to the dress she wore to their wedding-is only one example of what her doctors call a false memory: recollections Lucy’s mind made up to fill in the blanks from the coma. When the life Lucy believes she had slams against the reality she’s been living for the past four years, she must make a difficult choice about which life she wants to lead, and who she really is. $19.99 at Chapters Indigo.
