Bath & Beauty Reviews

Beauty Essentials from Shoppers Drug Mart

Shoppers Drug Mart reached out and offered to send me a box of products to share with you all.  The theme is Beach and Beyond.  

I was so excited to receive this package, it was like Christmas morning for me.  If you haven’t seen it already, head on over to our Facebook page to see my live unboxing, or take a look at the video below.

The first item I got to play with are these Joe Fresh Matte lipsticks.  Joe Fresh doesn’t scream cosmetics to me, but comfortable t-shirts and cheaply priced flip-flops.

But they’re sooo creamy, and smell really good too.  I love them, and i’m going to run to SDM as soon as I can to check out the other shades in this MAT line.   

I really do enjoy these lipsticks, and have added one to my makeup collection, and the other to my beauty bag in my purse. 

These lipsticks are $10.00



Have you ever tried oil absorbing sheets? Life brand Clear Action sheets are blue, and when they come in contact with oil they turn black and if it’s really bad, clear.  It absorbs the oil so you look fresh and clean while you’re out & about.  

warning ; they can make you feel gross! It picks up soooo much oil that you can hardly believe you were as oily as a breakfast skillet.  

50 sheets will run you $7.79






I don’t wear sun screen, ever, because of medical conditions I don’t change color when faced with UV rays.  Plus,  I’m part vampire and avoid the sun at all costs. (just kidding, i’m not a vampire… I just hate the sun) 

BUT my roommate goes camping all the time and needed some, so I gladly gave her the bottle to try.  

It’s not oily (and if it were, you have oil absorbing paper.. HA! No?), has a good consistency, and smells like coconut.   I’m just going to give it a 5/5 because my Roommate told me it was approved by the dermatologist association.. so it must be great!

Sunthera3 SPF 60 Sun Protection Lotion is $12.99




Isn’t this color the most perfect red ever? It’s called Date Night from Quo by Orly. 

The formula is as perfect as the hue because it lasted a week without chipping.  An entire week.  I’ve been looking for a classic red, who knew this $9.99 bottle would trump my entire nail polish collection? Definitely recommend.  




How did I ever get so lucky with Shoppers Drug Mart? They sent me an entire tub of 3-in-1 cleansing cloths.  It’s a cleanser, toner and makeup remover all in one.  It cleans so good that the oil absorbing sheets pick up no oil after (yes, I tried)

This 56 pack is available for $8.99





Life brand sensitive skin wax strips are designed for the delicate skin around your face and bikini area.  They’re a quick and easy way to be hairless for up to 4 weeks.  You get 40 strips in this $13.49 box.  That’s $0.33 per wax strip.   The frugal part of me thinks that’s an amazing deal.  

I tried them, and smart me did it on top of eczema, so after I said my favorite 4-letter words, I tried them on Ryan.   I was thoroughly disgusted at how much hair were on the strip.   I do wish they came with more depilatory wipes, but otherwise it’s a 10/10!  (ps, depilatory is a fancy word for magically takes wax off skin)

Natural oil-based cleanser has a super rich, luxurious and creamy texture to help remove makeup and dirt. Formulated with a  rich blend of virgin coconut, apricot and chia seed oils to cleans the skin without feeling greasy (also passes the oil absorbing sheet test) Ideal for dry skin.  96% natural, formulated without parabens, SLS and silicones.  PLUS, it’s cruelty free.  Any company that can say they’re cruelty free automatically gets brownie points from me.  

Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Creme Cleanser is $9,99 and available this September! 
Ps, they also have a facial mask coming in this line.   You’re welcome.
