Our Beauty Buyers Predict the Top Beauty Trends for 2020

If you’re looking to stay on top of the beauty trends in 2020, look no further because our Beauty & Skincare Buyer AND our Personal Care Buyer have rounded up the trends they’re seeing.

Trend #1: Bakuchiol

What’s All the Hype About? Derived from the Ayurvedic Babchi plant, Bakuchiol is taking the beauty world by storm because it’s a gentle retinol alternative. While we love the benefits of retinol, it can be irritating, especially for those with sensitive skin. Sensitive skin types rejoice with bakuchiol!

We love the Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum because not only is it a non-irritating retinol alternative, but it’s from the cult fave clean beauty brand, Herbivore. Paired with ingredients like amethyst extract, plant and botanical extracts, and soothing aloe, this is a wonderful serum that you can use daily or as often as needed.

Trend #2: Plastic Free Shower Routine

What’s All the Hype About? Skip the plastic and save the environment! Okay…it’s not THAT simple, but reducing our plastic waste is one small way we can reduce our carbon footprint and help Mother Earth. Whether you’re reaching for a bar soap instead of a bottle, a safety razor instead of disposables, or even a shampoo bar, reducing plastic is a trend we hope is here to stay.

We love the HiBar Volumize Shampoo Bar because it’s safe for coloured or treated hair, there’s no plastic (duh), and it’s made with natural, palm free ingredients.

Trend #3: Beauty from the Inside Out

What’s All the Hype About? We love our skincare rituals (seriously…best part of our day), but what you put into your body is just as important as what you put on it! Whether it’s a gummy vitamin for a radiant complexion, or a collagen supplement, we’re all about the beauty from the inside out glow.

We love the Vital Proteins Marine Collagen (and we’re not the only ones, it’s a customer favourite!) because it’s pescatarian-friendly, it’s easily digestible and mixes well with both hot and cold drinks, and it can even help reduce joint pain.

Trend #4: Biodegradable Beauty

What’s All the Hype About? While we’ve seen a reducing-plastic-trend, we’ve also seen the emergence of biodegradable beauty products, like biodegradable hair ties, bamboo toothbrushes, and even biodegradable DIY Deodorant Kits.

We love the Make this Universe Deodorant Kit because not only can you have fun creating your own DIY deodorant, you’ll get to explore DIY as a way to reduce waste! And of course you’ll have a vegan, all natural deodorant at the end!

Trend #5: Statement Hair Accessories

What’s All the Hype About? Skip the plain, hair-down-look and reach for (faux) pearls and cute scrunchies!

We love the Haven + Ohlee Scrunchies because they’re made with organic fabrics by two Canadian sisters, they’re gentle and prevent breakage, and they’re so cute!


Trend #6: New Facial Treatment Tools

What’s All the Hype About? While Gua Sha is a continuing trend, we’re seeing new Facial Treatment Tools like Microneedling and even Ice Rollers!

We love the Kitsch Ice Facial Roller because it’s a daily treatment to help revive and rejuvenate the skin. And the cool ice is so nice on a hot Summer’s day!

Which 2020 trend are you most excited for?
