Shoppers Beauty Box

Monday, September 17, 2012

If you're in Canada, you may know that Shoppers Drugmart has been having a bunch of little promos to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Last weekend they were having a bonus optimum point redemption event, so while I wasn't planning on getting anything, I popped into a store to have a look around.


Low and behold, I did end up picking up a couple things. Only two. Really! :)



My skin has been feeling a little dry lately. I blame it on September and the impending Winter season. So, I picked up the Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil. I've heard many good things about this product and figured I'd give it a shot. I've been using it nightly for a few days now, and while I haven't seen any concrete changes in my skin, I'm enjoying it so far.

Next is Stella McCartney's fragrance in Stella. I got the smallest bottle (30ml / 1 fl. oz). I really like the scent, but not enough to commit to a 100ml bottle. Fragrances are something you have to go out and test / smell for yourself, but here's a copy-paste of the notes:

"A beautiful fragrance which blends fraikle rose and sensuous amber.
With top notes of rose, peony and mandarin essence; middle notes of rose absolute and base notes of amber."

All I know is that it smells great on and it lasts quite a while.

Also, for spending over $75, I received, what I affectionately call, the Shoppers Beauty Box. The name stems from the fact that this is basically a box full of samples and a couple full-sized products. Within the 26 products, there was a mixture of fragrance, skincare, and makeup. Mostly little packets, but it was free, so no complaints here.





 



There was definitely a product for everyone. Lots of BB creams and skincare samples. I really like the two lip glosses (which are the only full-sized products), the colours are great and the quality is good.

Any recent purchases lately? I'd love to know! x

  1. I am bummed that I missed out on this now. I was looking around and at the time I didn't think I could spend $75 but wished I had. Next time I will check it out.

    1. Haha, sometimes I find it's too easy to spend that much at Shoppers :). Hopefully they do something similar in the future with different products.

  2. I contemplated on that offer when I saw it in the flyers and now that I've seen what was in the box, I'm actually a bit glad I didn't splurge. Most of the items I have tested or already own anyways. But do let us know about the Clarins facial oil, so curious about that one!

    1. Yeah, I agree! I didn't even realize they were having that promo.. I just went to redeem some optimum points. I was surprised I even received it since my total was less than $20 after redeeming haha but I'm not mad :).

    1. I've been liking the Clarins Oil, it smells kind of funky to me though. It acts a lot like Argan oil for my skin.

      And I love those MJ flats! Great buy :)
