A CANADIAN DRUGSTORE: MONTREAL





















































































I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my local drugstore Pharmaprix with you guys, I know a lot of my readers are American and British, so here's a small peek into the shelves of the beauty section! Of course we have the standard L'oreal, Maybelline, Cover Girl brands, but when I moved to Montreal (i'm American) I was so shocked to see how many french brands the drugstore carried. Bourjois, La Roche Posay, Bioderma, Vichy, the list goes on. They also carry Canadian brands such as Marcelle, Personelle, Lise Watier, which I try from time to time but if i'm totally honest i'm not exactly thrilled with.

I love that there are women stationed in the beauty section that are there to help you with your needs (although sometimes I just want to be left alone. Who else has had the secret dream of being the only person in a makeup store? I'd swatch the sh*t out of everything...).

Another drugstore here is Jean Coutu, which carries high end brands like The Balm. Sometimes I miss american drugstores because of the awesome sales and brands like Milani and Wet n' Wild, but overall I really love our drugstores here!

  1. Loved this post Chelsea! They have Wet n Wild and Milani at Walmart here, or at least the one by my house carries these 2 brands :)

  2. Yes you can definitely get Wet&Wild, and some Hard Candy from Walmart! I know though the sales here are so lame compared to what I sometimes find in the States! :)

  7. My eyes just went huge and my heart skipped a beat when I saw these pictures! OMG! I will be so spoilt for choices once we move to Canada! These are heavenly in comparison to what Malaysia has. I think hubby's heart skipped a beat too when I showed him this post...but not in a good way. LOL!

  8. I love seeing these photos. You can get Wet & Wild and Milani at Superstore. Do you get optimum points at Pharmaprix? That is my favourite part about Shoppers here. I go on huge beauty sprees with my points.
