The Pit Stop Haul

You’re on the highway enjoying the wind blowing through your hair, good conversation, and some classic Brittany, when suddenly hunger hits. The next thing you know you’re full on Taco Bell wandering around a Shoppers Drug mart.  So on our way to the drug store… I mean cottage this is what I bought.

So on the way to the cottage we stopped at the mall for some dinner. This particular mall had an L’Occitane store so when in Rome, right? I have been using L’Occitane hand creams for years however I am not too familiar with the rest of the product lineup. On the pursuit to try different scents I bought the body lotion gift set and a soap gift set. The creams are smooth, light and hydrating. The soaps I have yet to try but I plan on putting them in the bathrooms of our new house.

Yes at the age of tender age of 26 I am already turning into that grandma!
The ladies who worked at the store were absolutely amazing. Not only did they give me a rough rundown of the various line but they also loaded me up with samples to try.

Shoppers Drugmart was our pit stop on the way home. I always make an effort to stop at this particular Shopper’s on my way back home. Not only do they have a great selection, amazing sales but the ladies are absolute amazing. They are always helpful, knowledgeable and most importantly very kind. If you are ever in the Kingston area the Bayridge shoppers is worth checking out.

Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel
I was going to pick this up after I finished the cleansers I already have but at only $16.00 a pop it was the right price. I have been using this for only a couple of days and so far so good.

Clarins UV Plus Hp Day Screen
With my everyday LA Vanilla sunscreen on its last leg it was time to get something new. Not because I don’t like the La Vanilla Baby Black but because I have no idea where this is sold. The Clarins UV Plus has been a long-time favorite of mine so it’s nice to have it back in my collection.

Bioderma Photoderm
I’m still on the fence about after sun products some work while others I think are glorified body lotions. However this was priced at $5.99 and having great experiences with the Bioderma Cleansing Water I thought this was well worth the try.

Bioderma SPF 40
Again this was on sale for $6.99 for the price you can’t beat it. I look forward to using spray sunscreens especially when on the go.

Klorane Gentle Shampoo with Oat Milk
This was another great deal this jumbo sized bottle was the same price as a regular.
I have come to the conclusion that I am Klorane obsessed at the moment. The ingredients, the benefits and the price point you  can’t go wrong with Klorane.
As for this shampoo I have had a sample in the past it’s very gentle and perfect for everyday use. Yes, I am guilty of washing my hair everyday.
Klorane Leave in Cream with Date
When I went to the Klorane event the other week I was introduced to this product, it smells like chai late, and nourishes your hair and yet doesn’t leave it greasy.  

It smells so so good! So good!

Overall I met some really great ladies this weekend and experienced amazing customer service.

Expect some sun related posts soon!
