File this toner under cult status. I’ve been using Glow Tonic for years but if toner isn’t something in your skin care routine, fall is the perfect time to start. It gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion. Which is perfect after months exposing skin to UV rays. This one is alcohol free, refines the appearance of pores and gives you an uptick of radiance. - Julia McEwen, fashion and beauty director
Pixi Glow Tonic, 250 mL, $33, shoppersdrugmart.ca.
I am very on board the animal print trend of fall 2018. Despite notions that this pattern might be for the bold dresser, leopard print is easy to wear and can even act as a neutral in your wardrobe. If you’re really unsure, opt for accessories like leopard print shoes or purses, but if you’re ready to get in on the trend in a bigger way, this blouse is the perfect gateway. It’s a simple silhouette, a great small-scale pattern and will look just as good tucked into fitted pencil skirts as it will oversized and untucked over skinny jeans. - Alexandra Donaldson, fashion and beauty editor
My summer glow is disappearing—actually, I don’t think I ever had one. Regardless, my complexion is in need of a pop of colour. I’m reaching for this lip and cheek stick, which is super hydrating and French girl-approved—I learned about it from famed makeup artist Violette, as she uses it in one of her YouTube videos. The shade “Perk” is great for us super pale girls. - Renée Reardin, senior digital editor
