In Canada, one of our largest national drugstore chains, Shoppers Drug Mart, has a rewards program called Optimum points. The points you earn have a cash value and can be redeemed for most any items in the store for up to a maximum of $170 CAD. My favourite way to redeem my points is at their beautyBOUTIQUE, which carries high-end brands. There are lots of beautyBOUTIQUE locations in Canada, like the big one in the Eaton’s Centre, but just not near where I live. Luckily you can order online! They’re changing the Optimum program and merging it with another points program this month, so last month there were “spend your points” events, probably to entice people into redeeming their points prior to the merge. I was able to redeem my 50,000 points for $105 CAD (an extra $20). Here are the high-end goodies I got for my points. Continue reading

Hi everyone! I love samples. Its a great way to discover new products. Its how I discovered my favourite mascara, the Guerlain Maxi Lash, for example. A long while back, when I was placing a Sephora order online, I selected as a sample, the Dr. Lin Skincare Acne Spot Corrector. I’d been using it for at least 6 months or so, and then about a month ago I used it up. I wanted to do a review as well as let you know about a less expensive dupe. Continue reading
Shoppers Drug Mart has launched a new website, www.beautyboutique.ca, where you can order makeup and skincare products and earn Optimum points (pretty much the best rewards program of all time). I was curious to see how it differs from Murale, also owned by Shoppers Drug Mart. There seem to be two big differences:
1. The Beauty Boutique site offers free shipping over $75 CAD, and
2. you can redeem your Optimum points online! which you cannot do on the Murale site.
Also, right now you can get 8000 bonus Optimum points (until August 14) on the Beauty Boutique site.
I am excited to be able to order Bioderma Sensibio H2O which isn’t carried in-store anywhere in my town. Its also great to have more online shopping options for makeup products in Canada, especially since the recent Sephora shipping disaster.
Thanks for reading!
