If you follow me on Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter – you likely saw that last Saturday I spent my morning at Shoppers Drug Mart Top Picks event which took place in Pacific Centre. Their event highlighted their best sellers, new finds, and hidden gems. Since Shoppers Drug Mart has long been one of my go-to stores for all my beauty and lifestyle needs, I wanted to go and see which products they deemed to be their top picks – and grab a few for myself! Right now, you can actually shop all of their #SDMTopPicks and also score some big bonus Optimum points (you know, so that you can shop even more later on… it’s a win-win!)
At the Shoppers Drug Mart Top Picks event, we were invited to play the Vanity Memory game. Best of all, when you played this game you actually entered yourself in for a chance to win a $5,000 dream vanity! I mean – c’mon, that’s just awesome! Basically, you were given 15 seconds to memorize as many items as you could from the vanity, they then close the vanity and you have to try to recall as many items as possible.
It reminded me of a game we could play when I was young, my friends mum would put a bunch of different items on a tray and we’d have to try to remember all of them, we’d then write them down and see who remembered the most. I never won because honestly, my memory is terrible – and that really showed at the Shoppers Drug Mart Top Picks event (I think I only remembered 3? Shhh- don’t tell!)
The event at Pacific Centre is now over, but you can still snag a bunch of great items and also earn bonus Optimum Points at all Shoppers Drug Mart locations until October 7, 2016!
The items I went ahead and snagged for myself are…
Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash
The Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash has been a staple of mine for a while. I love Dove body care and have used their body washes in particular for quite sometime. Now that we’re getting into the cooler seasons though, I need to really take care of my skin and make sure it doesn’t become dry or irritated from the chilly weather. Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash is softer on your skin than most soaps and won’t dry out your skin.
GARNIER OLIA B+++ MAX BLEACH HAIR COLOUR
Lately, I’ve been feeling like my ombre hair is fading a bit so I decided to pick up Garnier Olia B+++ Bleach Hair colour. I have done DIY ombres on my hair before, and since I want a little refresh I thought it would be great to try out this Shoppers Drug Mart hidden gem!
L’OREAL Root Cover Up
One thing I spotted while I was at this event was the L’OREAL Root Cover Up. This product actually isn’t for me, but I have a close friend who is always complaining about her roots and wanting a root cover-up product but can’t find one. As soon as I spotted this I just knew she’d love it and so I decided to snag one for her. I mean, I found a great gift for my friend – and I received bonus Optimum Points – it’s a total win-win!
