Shoppers Drug Mart wishlist...

It's a lazy Sunday here at the household and I'm just about to head to work...

What else to keep me motivated to make money than a little shopping list of things I am keen on trying from Shoppers Drug Mart (the friendly neighbourhood Canadian pharmacy):

1. La Roche Posay Effaclar K Lotion for Acne Prone Skin

(Excuse the Spanish product photo, it's the best I could find)
You all know how I feel about La Roche Posay's Effaclar line - so far everything I've tried has been great and I have heard one of my favourite makeup artists on YouTube, Lisa Eldridge mention this product in one of her skincare videos so I'm very keen on trying it out! It's supposed to be a gentle daily exfoliating lotion.

2. Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover

I've never did anything to my cuticles. Terrible, I know... aside from getting manicures every once in a blue moon, I never do anything with my cuticles on my own - I don't push them back, I don't cut them, I don't use a special balm on them... and I really think this needs to change because they've been looking so crummy lately. I've heard good things about this so far so if I spot it on my next trip to Shoppers I want to scoop it up.
Any recommendations for a good cuticle moisturizer that could be found at the drug store?

3. Crest Whitestrips 3D

These babies are never cheap (at Shoppers they're around the inflated price of $50-$60), so I've been patiently waiting for them to come on sale as they sometimes do, and then I'll pounce. I've used the regular ones on numerous occasions through the years and they've always worked great.

What's on your drugstore wishlist this week?




  1. The Burts Bees Lemon cuticle butter is supposed to be great for moisturizing cuticles...and it's available at Shoppers :-)

  2. You will not be disapointed with LRP products, i promiss! Funny i ordered online the SH cuticle remover, i want to see how it works! I will probably order the Crest strips too because we cannot find them in Europe.

  3. I did a little shopping at Shoppers yesterday...Bought the new VolumeExpress One by One mascara (sale), Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer (wrong colour, hate that) & that's it for the beauty dept.

  4. effaclar k is a must have holy grail product for me. have been bsessed with la roche posay since hearing about it from the goddess that is Lisa ELdridge! But this is my number one product from them, i put it on under make up and it actually makes my skin feel better as the day goes on. AMAZING xxxx

  5. Hey, there is going to be a double bonus redemption at SDM this coming weekend, so if you have points racked up you can get lots of free stuff. I blog Canadian daily deals on and am also a fellow beauty blogger (in canada). LOVE your youtube videos too. :)

  6. Did you know you can order Crest White Strips on Amazon and they're way cheaper? I'm not sure if they ship to Canada though...
    But you should check it out!

  7. For dry cuticles you I use Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme. It's really great and very inexpensive :)

  8. This weekend Shopper's is having a 'Redeem Your Points' extravaganza! If I cash in 80,000 I can get $200 worth of merchandise =)

    - COVER FX - Setting FX Loose Mineral Powder or maybe Hoola by Benefit
    - Avene "Diacneal" skincare lotion or should I opt for Neo Strata?
    - Some perfume
    - And a few other odds and ends I haven't completely decided on yet.

    Luv ur videos too =)

  9. Hey Sandra, for the white strips, check out
    Usually they have coupons with white strips on them (usually for about $5-$8 off!)... not sure if they have these ones on their right now... but they mail you the coupons after you select which ones. Usually get em in about 2 weeks. It's worth a shot!

  10. Sorry! Gave you the wrong link... I meant That's the one. It's Procter & Gamble's (the manufacturer of Crest products) website for coupons. And I just checked - they do have these ones on there right now for $5.00 off. Yay!
