A Quick Trip Down the Shoppers Drug Mart Aisle | New & So You Event

Friday, March 16, 2018





Confession: the deeper I get into my twenties, the more picky I’ve become with the products I use every day. It has become a priority of mine to make the right choices for my hair, skin and body. I remember as a teen, running to my closest Shoppers Drug Mart, picking whatever was on sale…and miraculously, it would always work for me. Now at the ripe age of 24… not so much. My skin has become way more sensitive, and my hair – thanks to my amazing colourist – has become much lighter. This all calls for different products – but with so many to choose from, I always find myself perplexed in the aisle.

Since I was young, Shoppers has always been my go-to place for anything body, skin and hair related. I even remember buying my first mascara ever from there at thirteen years old! It’s amazing how much they’ve expanded their beauty, hair and skincare selections since then, which is part of why I was so thrilled to attend the New & So You event at Square One Mall in Mississauga. There, I was able to try some of their new products for spring all in one place.


There have been so many exciting new launches, it can be challenging to find what may suit you. Currently I’m really focused on finding hydrating products for my skin, and also ways to nurture my hair and go longer in between washes. At the New & So You event, I was able to use a tablet to select what I was looking for in terms of hair and body care. Soon after that, a conveyor belt with a curated selection of new products arrived just for me!


In my goodie bag I found a generous sample size of the Klorane® Dry Shampoo with Nettle – Natural Tint, Cetaphil® Daily Hydrating Lotion and a full size of the Love, Beauty & Planet™ Hope & Repair™ Conditioner! I can’t wait to try all of them, especially with my upcoming trip to Europe in the next few weeks – I’ll need the extra TLC.

My goodie bag from the event, plus a TON of goodies for my giveaway! 

If you follow me on Instagram – you’ll also know that I managed to scoop up an amazing giveaway bag for one lucky winner! It’s full of new products courtesy of my friends at Shoppers Drug Mart. I selected one of my followers at random who commented on the entry insta-post…

And the winner is… *cues drum roll*
