Last fall, I noticed my local Shoppers Drug Mart holding a charity sale, in which they had pre-bundled goodie bags of higher-end skincare samples for $10. I can’t remember which women’s charity it was for, but considering it was October, it may have been for Breast Cancer research.
Of course I picked up one bag (I’ve reviewed the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser)!
Despite the fact that I hated this cleanser, I thought the charity bag idea was a dandy one and I was delighted to see that Shoppers has stepped it up!
A week ago, I noticed more charity bags at the same store, but only in the beauty department. (Previously they were at the regular checkout.) The goody bags now costed $5 and contained an assortment of full-sized makeup and nail polish from the mass market lines like Revlon, L’Oréal, Maybelline, and in-house brand Quo, instead of skincare samples from the likes of Nuxe and La Roche-Posay.
I didn’t get a chance to grab one then, but yesterday I hit up that Shoppers again, and they had packaged up some new bags that contained foundations and lipsticks.
