Shoppers Drug Mart offers a wide variety of Thoughtful Choices that are cruelty-free and formulated without: Parabens, Pthalates, SLS, SLES, Triclosan, Formaldehyde Agents and other harmful ingredients. These products are also made with recycled packaging.
The Lise Watier Soothing Rose Petal Gel Toner ($31) is one of my favorites! The moisturizing formula eliminates traces of makeup, dirt, sweat, oil and impurities so skin appears smooth and radiant. Toning should be one of the most important steps in your skincare routine if you want a glowing complexion.
Boscia makes fabulous skincare products and I love their Purifying Gel Cleanser ($45). Unlike many natural cleansers, this one provides a rich, milky, hydrating lather that deep cleans and purifies. It leaves my skin feeling silky and conditioned with no residue.
In this category I’ll start with the Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum ($23). This vegan formula contains concentrated Vitamin C, Kakadu Plum and Glycolic Acid that brightens clogged dry skin. It has a mild scent and feels lightweight and supple. I use it before applying moisturizer and it works well as a makeup primer.
The Versed Press Restart Gentle Retinol Body Lotion ($33.99) targets dryness, breakouts and aging skin by speeding up cell turn-over and improving texture and tone. It helps firm loose skin around the knees while a blend of Squalane and Cocoa Butter smooths rough elbows and dry patches. The cream does not have much of a scent and the formula is lightweight and non-greasy which is perfect for summer.
I’ve seen the Monday Collection at Shoppers before, but this was my first time trying it. The Colour Protect Shampoo ($9.99) is sulfate and paraben free with a nourishing pH balanced formula that revives colour treated hair. I don’t dye my hair but I appreciate a great smelling shampoo that cleanses and refreshes my scalp without drying out my ends.
