The only thing we like more than Attitude eco-friendly home cleaning products? Their all-new body care line.
The Montreal-based brand has developed a collection of carcinogen-free products that contain zero 1,4-dioxane and ethylene oxide. While the two substances are illegal in Canada and never listed in ingredients, the company asserts that they can sneak into formulas as manufacturing byproducts.
Enter Attitude’s new (and extensive!) line of products that includes deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bubble bath and more. All are made in Canada in an energy-efficient plant, never tested on animals, and EcoLogo certified.
Our hands-down favourite is the Body Wash Revival ($8.99). It smells great, leaves our skin silky smooth and, best of all, our conscience totally clear. — Christine Laroche

Mark Darcy held Bridget’s wobbly bits in high regard, but we’re ready to throw ours off the edge of reason.
We got help with our own unsightly inches at the Institut de Beauté Lorraine Termetz. Its VelaShape treatment uses cellulite-busting technology with rolling sensors to break up fat cells, infrared heat to melt away liquid fat, and bipolar radio frequency to filter toxins on your hips, thighs, buttocks or tummy. After eight pain-free sessions ($190 each) we’d lost a mighty three centimeters off our midsection.
V. good! We’re officially tossing the granny pants.
