SDM Redemption Haul

Went to Shoppers Drug Mart for my small redemption. For those who don't live in Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart is a drug store which offers a loyalty card. Whenever you do a purchase, you could earn optimum points and every couple of months, they offer special bonus redemption when you could redeem extra. For example, usually you can redeem 50,000 optimum points for $85 worth of products. This weekend, they are offering redeem 40,000 points for $90 beauty or skin care products.

My Shoppers Drug Mart in town does not offer a wide variety of high end beauty products as in the cities. So I just did a small redemption. I combined this offer with a mailed in coupon, when you spend $75, take $25 off. So I am getting $120 products pretty much free. I just had to pay for the taxes. 

L'oreal Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara
La Roche Posay Anthelios Sunscreen
Benefit Porefessional Shine Control Powder
Physician's Formula EyeBooster 2-in-1 Eyeliner
Benefit GimmeBrow 

La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 60 sunscreen and Physician's Formula eyeliner are my daily staples and I am almost out of those. 

I picked up two Benefit products which I haven't tried and very excited about. I love Porefessional primer and this oil-control powder is new. It is a fine powder and at the bottom of the tube, comes with a small brush and it is very handy to put in my purse for touch ups. 

Another Benefit product is Gimme Brow in medium. It is basically a brow-volumizing gel. Sometimes when I don't want to do a full brow, think this would be a fast and easy way to do my brows.

I am more adventurous in trying out new mascaras these days. My holy grail is Maybelline Falsies but I am branching out to try other waterproof mascara. Heard this L'Oreal butterfly is pretty good in terms of holding curls and giving volume without clumps. So I'm very excited to try this.

Have you tried any of these products?


  1. Oh my God, I am so curious about the Butterfly WP mascara. I was waiting for the WP version to come out. Can't wait to hear what you think about it! :)

    1. I can't wait to try it but I've got to finish the ones I'm using first. Will definitely let you know what I think of it.

  2. I haven't tried any of those products, but they look good! I wish we had those kinds of deals here!

    1. I love companies having loyalty/rewards card. I just wish drug stores here are more like the ones in the States that we could stack coupons.

  3. Great haul! I like the Optimum program because you can spoil yourself once in a while. I'm currently saving my points to stock up on baby products. I have 125K points though so I could still redeem 18K for a little something for myself.

    1. Shoppers Drug Mart has great deals on baby products. I have friends who always get diapers and they said it's the best deal there.
