Our esthetician on the team sure knows what she talks about when advising customers on which products they should be using. With her bubbly personality and her extensive knowledge of skincare, Elodie has been more than a delight to have on our team.
Describe yourself in 3 sentences
My name is Elodie, I’m 26. I have been a Beauty Advisor at Murad Canada since June 2014 and a qualified esthetician since 2008.
What is your favorite/must-have Murad products and why?
My must-have Murad product is the Hydrating Toner. It’s funny how most people usually underestimate toners, but I absolutely love them. When I wake up, I cannot do anything before refreshing my face with a toner followed by a dark strong coffee, and then I am awake. The Hydrating Toner neutralizes the surface of the skin and helps any day or night cream penetrate better and boost my skin hydration even more. During summer time, this toner offers my skin a light moisture and a lot of freshness. Definitely a must-have!
When do you recommend these product?
Any time really. When you wake up and especially during the summer to refresh the skin. If you have a dinner date but don’t have time to touch up your makeup, two sprays of the Hydrating Toner and your makeup will be refreshed in a second!
What is your favourite beauty tip?
As an esthetician I love to have impeccable skin and great makeup. Wearing makeup doesn’t mean painting your face. To me, it’s really all about how to enhance a person’s natural beauty. So less is more! To keep both my makeup and skin beautiful throughout the day I use the Oil Control Mattifier SPF 15 as a primer on my T-zone. This way, my foundation lasts longer and I don’t need any more touch ups during the day!
What is your favorite Dr. Murad insight?
“Stay in touch with your passion.”
Do only what you love to do. Forget what others tell you, because only you know what makes you happy. Your passion might not be the easiest path to take but always remember that it’s worth it.
If you weren’t at work, what would you be doing?
It depends on the weather. On a rainy day, I like to make a big pot of soup and read a great book. But on a sunny day, I am definitely outside. I love to discover the city I live in, it’s always full of surprises.
How do you embrace the Murad Inclusive Health Vision and strive to Look, Live and Feel #BetterEveryDay?
How do you LOOK BETTER?
Having a daily routine is really important to me. From removing makeup, to cleansing and hydrating, each step helps my skin feel good and look better every day.
How do you LIVE BETTER?
Walking and hiking! I live downtown and I never take the bus in the city. Wherever I go, I walk. If I have to take the bus to go further away, I stop before my station and walk up to my destination. This way, I make sure I take the time to clear my head and I feel great. When the days get longer and it is sunnier outside, I like to challenge myself by going on a hike every week, each time going on a more difficult one.
How do you FEEL BETTER?
I try to eat as healthy as I can, by making everything homemade: soups, salads, cakes… But if a donut is around me, I am not promising you anything!!! 🙂
