SHOPPERS DRUG MART – March 02, 2014

soap & Glory
Beauty Native Style

I had an amazingly informative visit yesterday when I ventured into the  Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique in Lloydminister, Alberta.  My husband had some business to do in Lloyd and asked me if I would like go on a road trip with him to Lloyd for day, my mind immediately started going through my list of “things we needed and things I wanted”, while nodding “YES”.   After his business was done, we stopped at the Lloyd Mall and went our separate ways and would meet up later.  I immediately walked to the Shoppers Drug Mart store and had one thing on my list, toothpaste.  That morning, I had to cut open my already empty tube of toothpaste and managed to scrape out the enough toothpaste to do a very minimal job of brushing my teeth, don’t you just hate that when that happens?.  Anyway, I grabbed my Crest Regular toothpaste, they were on sale to I grabbed 3, and continued wandering around the store when I found myself in the Cosmetic area, like this was not planned, lol.  Thing is, I should have cured my cosmetic fix the day before when I stopped at the Shopper’s Drug Mart in Fort Saskatchewan and bought an insane amount of amazing cosmetics, but no I had to buy more, sheeesh.  I started out kind of slow, scanning over all the drugstore cosmetics, Revlon, Maybelline, Cover Girl, L’Oreal and all the other drugstore brands but what I was really after were the high-end products.  Imagine my shock when I learned that this Shoppers Drug Mart did not offer the Urban Decay, Stila, Benefit, Shiseido, Lise Watier or any other the other high-end cosmetics you usually see at Shoppers.  I also learned from the amazing lady who assisted me, that come September the Shoppers Drug Mart would be opening up at a new location and would be offering the higher end cosmetic in their beauty boutique, thank goodness.


I ended up chit chatting with Michelle Yarosloski the Shoppers Beauty Consultant, what a fabulous lady, about the different products I was picking up to review on my Blog ( and about bronzer.  I showed her the “Soap and Glory” Shower & Bath Body Wash that has peppermint essential oils & grape seed EFAs, Body Buff with babassu oil, sea salt and moisturizing jojoba & mandarin oils, and the Righteous Butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera.  I will be doing a review of all this Soap & Glory products later this month.  I also picked up my first Lancôme’s Mineral Smoothing Loose Bronzer that maybe discontinued as I cannot find it so that I can gives  a true lustrous gl0w, an exqousite wear.  Michelle and I then got talking about my product reviews and I asked about the Lancôme bronzers and that I would like to review this as well.  She was unable to swatch them for me because their was no testers available for swatching, which I thought was not right.  For me swatching, blotting, smearing and spritzing are important to ensure I buy the right shades for my complexion.  Needless to say, Michelle did a fabulous job with the resources she had available.  I also filled out the survey and did commented about this issue

as my concern, hoping that Shopper’s will give her the sample products she needs to accommodate her clientele.  Michelle, being the fabulous comostician (is that even a word?), made up for not being able to swatch, gave me samples to try out for my review, AWESOME.  I just love freebee’z.  She gave me a full size LOREAL COLOR RICHE – Lip Liner in Eternal Mauve and has an Anti-Feathering effect.  I also received a TWEEZERMAN PROFESSIONAL lighted round mirror, a NEOSTRATA – Secure White Anti Dark Circle & Brightening Cream Samples and a sample size LANCOME – Absolue Yeux-Skin Care Eye Treatment that will work to fully rejuvenate my full expressive look, humm interesting.  I am so excited about this whole experience as it was my first time receiving products to review on my Blog, how awesome is that.  So, I will definitely be doing a review on these products in a couple of weeks and let you my thought on these products.  The ladies and gentlemen at the Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques are very knowledgeable and are always willig to assist me when I walk in the door, Thank you, it is very much appreciated.  Bye for now,  keep smiling Beauty Native Style 🙂
