I used the cerave pm last night. It rubs in nicely the pump on the lotion is very nice, not sticking my fingers in a tub. My skin was nice this morning not dry. I'll report more when I use again.


Awesome oranges, so far so good! I will be looking forward to your report after a fair trial period! Thanks for reporting on it so far. Very Happy

Sorry Lou,

I used to (many years ago) find the coolest brands at small privately owned drug stores it was great! Now with the chains and Walmart all those little independents seem to have gone the way of the horse and buggy! It is such a shame. Sad

There is no Beauty Boutiques in the smaller stores?
I thought some would?

Well,
I know for sure that EVERY shoppers sells pretty much the whole line of Nativa organic foods.
I know it is not a "cosmetic" but it still is a great drugstore find Smile
Many of the organic items are cheaper than the same thing name brand organic is at the grocery store.

The Organic banana chips good.
organic tomato sauces in glass jar, also good
organic cheese puffs, pretty good and "healthy'
Blue corn chips, yummmm! my favorite
the orgnic nuts are good
orcanic corn flake cereal, also good Smile
Organic maple syrup, also good

there is at least 200 items, most of them are very good.
the sandwich cookies with icing, there are just ok...but would rebuy because they are better than cookies w unhealthy ingredients!

oh, also the sun dried tomatoes in oil are good- and a good price, and the pesto too Smile

I know most people never think to get groceries at a drugstore,but the store brand organic items are great overall.

My husband's dermatologist turned me on to this one. Cerave facial wash and the large tub of moisturizing cream is the best. I get mine at Walgreens. He said it has a patented formula that locks moisture into skin... He actually told my husband it is better than any expensive cream out there. I put it on right out of the shower on damp skin. It is amazing! Locks moisture in...truly keeps my skin young looking. Someone mentioned chest wrinkles? I find using this helps get rid of them.

I know there are some Canadians on here,
so thought I'd post my favorite way to get tons of extra points @ Shoppers Drugmart!

on certain days they have bonus points days,

now if you go to the Shoppers website you can see the monthly and weekly points bonus offers and print bonus point coupons there.
there is also many offers like maybe buy x brand and get 7,000 bonus points.

What most people do not know is that the bonus points get added to the 20x or special promotion day.

so in a was you are "double dipping" to get points, but this is allowed and it is the computers that automatically give you these points.


Also every month there is a different cosmetic brand that has extra bonus points all month long.

I know right now there is spend $40 on smashbox lip stuff and get 4,000 extra points.

if you go when it is a 20x day you would get the 4,000 + 10,000 (usually when u spend $50)

meaning u would get around 15,00 pts which equals $25 in merchandise (to spend on anything in the store, like food,more makeup ect)

their special offers are on this page also:

http://www1.shoppersdrugmart.ca/en/Shoppers-Optimum/All-Optimum-Offers.aspx

-just wantd to add I actually have no points right now as I used them on groceries and boring drugstore items.
I've been staying away from any promo days since winter Smile

Ok, my favorite drugstore products... They are actually many because I canīt afford to buy lots of high end products and I believe is not necessary unless we are talking about certain special products.
1) Johnsonīs 24h hand cream
2) Garnier Tonics (specially the ones for sensitive skin, they are absolutely amazing)
3)Apri scrubs, specially the one to remove black heads (unfortunately when I last went to england couldnīt find it anywhere Sad
4) Boots Cotton Pads (they make promotions all the time on these ones and they donīt fall apart when Iīm cleaning my face)
5)Labello Lip Effect CoQ10 Lip Balm. I use this every night before bed and my lips are so moisturized during the day that I forget to apply gloss, balm or lipstick
6)Body butters from Lush (specially king of skin and heavanila - I applied these ones straight after showering before towel drying, its more effective than Johnsons baby oil and takes the same time applying)
7)Mask "The Sacred Truth" from Lush. An amazing mask that I find as good as Pangeaīs one with Goji berries and Matcha tea. Shame that after 3 weeks goes bad and I can not find it in Portugal yet.
8)Rimmel varnishes (specially the 10 days ones - they dont last 10 days, usually about 5 but they have excellent prices and beautiful colours)

Its all I can remember for now.Will post later other drugstore finds if I can remember lol

And thatīs about it.

Skincarerx.com sells that brand.
They ship to Canada.

another thing is they price match any authorized site that sells it, so if you find it for cheaper you send them the website and ad and they refund you the difference.

I price match all the time there for Derma E and some soaps and shower gels I like Smile
-shipping is resonable to Canada also

I just started using Revlon Grow Luscious mascara and while I don't see that my lashes are growing longer, I do like the mascara itself. I wasn't sure I would when I pulled the wand out of the tube, because the brush is huge. But I haven't had any problems applying the mascara to my lashes and the big brush means that there's no extra mascara on the brush when I pull it out so I'm not getting clumps on my lashes. I imagine they'll quit making it next week, because it doesn't get very good reviews and I like it. Rolling Eyes

My recent find is a sulfate free shampoo:
http://www.renpure.com/

Renpure Organics My Pretty Hair is Parched.

I think RenPure is the same company that makes Aussie.

Also, John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volumizing Conditioner.

Some of my favourites are:

Jergen`s natural glow (gives gradual, natural colour)

Freeman Avocado and Oatmeal facial clay mask (only about $3 at Wal Mart, I`ve been using it since I was a teenager, really makes your skin smooth and radiant)

I haven't *actually* managed to find these yet, because while they are a drugstore find, they're not at any of MY local drugstores. Sad But as soon as I'm able, I'll be getting my mitts on these Blum Naturals Daily Combination/Oily Towelettes. I blogged a little more about them here, but basically, I have never found a towelette that wasn't either full of icky occlusives or really stingy/ouchy on my face.

These have a small amount of salicylic acid and a gentle-looking ingredient list, so here's hoping they can replace plain old 7th gen baby wipes as my "egads I'm too lazy to bother" solution on the supposedly-rare nights when I don't remove my makeup before bedtime. I like to think the BHA would help mitigate the pore-clogging damage of skipping a makeup removal/face washing... will update if I ever track them down!

I LOVE Physician's Formula Gel Cream Eyeliner. It is the one that comes in packs of three and stack together. I usually hate gel liners, I bought two MAC ones a couple years ago and promptly gave them away. But the Physician Formula ones are amazing. You get three colors for about $11 and you get a pretty awesome brush too. The packaging is what caught my eye since I absolutely was NOT a drugstore makeup gal. A more detailed review is written on this blog:

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good drugstore cream to powder foundation? I've been using Revlon Age Defying makeup with SPF 20, but I guess it's been discontinued because I can't find it anywhere. Sad I don't want to buy anything expensive because I only use this on the days I'm in a hurry and on weekends. I've tried Cover Girl Simply Ageless and didn't care for it. It made my face oily.

A few new favorites:
Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffrey Dover: (from CVS)
...Cellular Nutrient Serum with anti-oxidants
...Anti-Aging Eye Treatment

Age-defying toothpaste by arm and Hammer - Great for "older" teeth: it remineralizes enamel.

Face Wash from Cerave - Already have the moisturizing tub.
L'oreal hydrating shampoo Everstrong - no SLS, no harsh salts in the product.

-- Aquaphor ointment. It's the only thing that keeps my lips from being a flaky mess. After 2 rounds of Accutane (and I'd do it again if I had to!), my lips are dryer than they used to be.

-- Maybelline Full and Soft mascara. It's the only one I consistently repurchase. Sometimes I'll try a new one, and I never even make it through the full tube before I go back to my old standby.

-- Selsun blue shampoo. I don't really have dandruff, just an itchy scalp. Head and Shoulders didn't help much. I love the smell of Selsun blue (I have the moisturizing formula), it helps keeps the itchies at bay, and definitely makes my hair softer since I started using it.

-- Suave Professionals Vibrant Shine Conditioner. On my first bottle, and will definitely repurchase. It's cheap, it works great, and it smells great. Done deal!

-- Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail lotion. Have been buying this for years. I use it after every time I wash my hands at work.

I just picked up the Cerave PM lotion and the face wash. I actually bought the wrong one, the hydrating one. Returning it today for the foaming face wash. So far the PM lotion is working just fine. Seems like my face doesn't get as dry during the day as it had been. I needed a good basic nighttime lotion. I had been using RoC retinol night treatment, and was getting dull skin as a result, (my face is really sensitive to retinol, I guess!). I read on Makeup Alley how some are using the Cerave PM about 20 minutes before their tretinoin treatments to avoid the dryness, so I figured I'll give that a try so I can back to using the RoC retinol (I'd given it up because it was making my face look worse instead of better).

I'm hoping that the foaming face wash will actually take off ALL of my makeup. I'm having a problem finding a face wash that will do it! It's just mineral makeup! Yet no matter what I use, I always get a dirty cotton pad afterwards, when I swipe with my glycolic toner.

Such great recs in this thread! Very Happy

There are some good suggestions, but I think I'm at the wrong drugstore, because I walk up and down the aisles and have never seen half of these products. I'll have to make a list next time I go.

What drugstore do you use, Safire? I'm interested in the two products you mentioned.

You and me both Skippie! LOL I wonder if that's in Australia, the Lucas paw paw ointment is an Aussie product that I have never seen here in the states? Maybe it's someplace I don't know about though! Smile

Aussie member here. Lucas Paw Paw ointment has petrochemicals/mineral oil from memory. It's a very popular product here & it's lovely on the lips, but i prefer something without those nasties.
Trilogy Rosehip Oil is one of my HG's. I think it's made in NZ. I've lost count of how many bottles i have bought in the last couple of years. It's a product i will never be without. Trilogy make lots of lovely, natural products.
