Shopper's Drugmart Haul!

I absolutely LOVE my local Shoppers Drugmart. There are literally dozens of Shoppers Drugmarts in my area (they're basically on every block, it is insane) but the one I go to has the best staff in their beauty boutique! I always get spoiled with tons of samples and free goodies to take home.
I stopped in to grab a couple of things, and left with loads more! They are having a great Optimum point bonus right now, where you get an extra 18,500 points when you spend $75.00 or more, and the ladies at the counter told me they're having a redemption promo this weekend, so be on the look out!

My lovely Shoppers Haul!
I picked up La Roche-Posay's 60 SPF matte finish facial sun screen ($27.00/50 ml). My old facial sun screen was expired and I had heard great things about this product from multiple bloggers that I follow, so I decided to pick up a bottle. It features a fast absorbing, matte finish, it is paraben free, and it is suitable for those with oily skin. I am not sure about you, but I LOATHE wearing sun screen because I always feel like it will break me out. I am excited for this product because it should not trigger any breakouts and will keep my delicate facial skin protected from the sun this summer.

I also grabbed another Revlon lip butter because they were on sale for $7.99! I have been craving a coral lip shade lately, so I grabbed tutti frutti and I already LOVE it. I put it on as soon as I got home and it looks awesome with a little clear lipgloss layered over it. Like some have said, these lip butters are not amazingly moisturizing like they claim- they can be a bit drying. However, I like the staying power of the colour and I like the packaging and price-point!

The ladies at the beauty boutique grabbed me this awesome 'gift with purchase'- three different La Roche-Posay products! These are huge sized samples. This is valued at $33.00 and I only paid $27.00 for my sunscreen, so I got a wicked deal by getting this gift set with my La Roche-Posay purchase. I wasn't even aware that I would be receiving this gift with purchase, so if you buy any La Roche-Posay product at your local Shoppers Drugmart, I can only assume you will get this amazing gift set free too! It comes with a body wash, an after-sun cream, and a facial hydrator.
Free La Roche-Posay gift with purchase :)


I also picked up a benefit Snow White and the Huntsman gift for my giveaway. Soon enough this will be in one of your hands, woo hoo :)
On top of the La Roche-Posay free gift, the ladies at my beauty boutique gave me a free HUGO BOSS duffle bag that is great quality and will be perfect for light travel or the gym.
I also got a Vichy moisturizer sample and a Lancome fragrance vial. Once again, this is why I find single-use packet samples and fragrance vials in beauty boxes to be a complete write-off and NOT a legit sample- you can get these with ease for free at any department store or Shoppers Drugmart!
So that concludes my Shopper's haul! Lots of goodies, and I am very excited to try out my new sun screen.

  5. Ahhhh, redemption time is here! You got some great stuff! How come you decided not to wait for the redemption weekend? Or are you going to now that you have 18500 more points?! You do have generous ladies at Shoppers indeed! That's pretty awesome that she gave you the gift set!

    1. yes I didn't have enough points for redemption weekend so now I think I do. but I don't really understand how it all works, I've never done a bonus redemption before, believe it or not! I've been behind on the optimum point bandwagon.

      Delete
    2. At bonus redemptions, you redeem a certain number of points, but you end up being able to get more dollars for those points! You can usually get away with $30 to $60 more stuff!!

  8. Holy Moly... you have great shoppers staff working there! What great intensives to shop there instead of buying from online sites (aka sephora) That benefit bag is soo nice! I always ask the shoppers staff if they have perfume samples for me.. I agree if I get them in a Beauty Box.. it better be a a full size roller or something!

    1. yes this is such a great location! I actually sent an email to head office to tell them what fabulous staff they have at this location! I hope it makes them happy to get a good compliment for once, as I'm sure they're used to just hearing complaints at head office! lol.

  9. I am a Shoppers Optimum points addict! Whenever there is a 20x event, I'm there. I usually pick up groceries at those events and when redemption time comes(so excited this weekend!!:), I would pick up cosmetics to treat myself. Lucky your local Shoppers has a great variety of brands of cosmetics. Mine is very limited. You're going to love the La Roche Posay sunscreen. That has changed my daily sunscreen routine!! Enjoy!

    1. I remember seeing the La Roche Posay sunscreen on your blog, amongst others! I knew I had to get it when I saw it had a matte finish!! I am surprised your shoppers doesn't have a full beauty boutique in it, maybe email them and suggest they put one in!

  12. I've been waiting to buy Tutti Frutti because I think colors like that are just perfect for summer! But I'll have to invest in a clear gloss like you suggested xoxo

  15. I'm in love with the Revlon Lip Butters, some people don't like them, can't fancy why! I have to use a certain chap stick with or else they will become drying.

    1. I think that is why people don't like them- they're supposed to be very moisturizing on their own and they're really not. But I don't mind that, I like them anyway for their colour!

  16. Great haul!! La Roche-Posay is suppose to have a great make up remover too that I want to try! I love shoppers beauty boutique too and really love the point specials. It doesn't take long really for them to add up and who ddoesn't love free products when you use your point!!

    1. it is a great value. I feel like the porefessional on its own is grossly overpriced and should only be bought in a gift set!

  19. Great little (big) haul! I love La roche posay, especially for sunscreen!! Definitely good in terms of being non-greasy - I wear it all the time and it has never been an issue!! La Roche Posay and ROC are my go-to's.

  23. Sounds like my Sally beauty supply! They are very nice there and I get all sorts of free stuff! A couple weeks ago they piled up all sorts of stuff that was already marked down and took fifty percent off! Are there anyof these places in Ohio?
