Shoppers Drug Mart - Spring Beauty Bonus

2014-03-08

Hi all,
It's spring! Not really. In most of Canada March means it's still cold and snowy and gross but some days its less horrible. March does mean Spring Beauty Bonus time at shoppers! In order to qualify for this bonus you must spend $125 on cosmetics. They claim this beauty bag has a value of over $300 and below you can find a list of items and the total approximate value of everything in the bag.

Personally I don't think I would have purchased the $125 worth of items if it had not also been a spend your points even, in which I spent $85 worth of points (50,000) and got $85 removed from my bill and also got a $15 "gift card" to shoppers. You have to watch these cards though because they have expiration dates and if you don't use them in time you're out of luck.
Please excuse the lighting, the sun did that thing there where it leaves the sky and outside becomes dark
Following is a list of everything in the bag with its size followed by its approximate value (in CAD)

Lancome La vie est belle (4ml) - $9.60 - however mine leaked over a bunch of my other stuff so there isn't actually a full 4ml in there anymore
Biotherm Skin-Best Serum-InCream (5ml) - $10.33
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus (15ml, quoted at being  2 week supply) - $29.50
Clarins New Super Resportative Day AST (5ml) - $10.20
Prevage Anti-Aging Daily Serum (5ml) - 15.90
Lancome Advanced Genifique (8ml) - $16-25
Benefit BigEasy Multibalancing Complexion Perfection (3ml) - $3.20 - I got the shade 01 Fair which should be okay for me however you do not get to pick what shade you get
LipFusion Deluxe Double Ended Duo (4.4g) - $18.00 - This would be full size HOWEVER I seem to be missing mine so I am not going to be counting that towards my total end value
Lise Watier Lift and Firm 3D Day (2ml) and Night (2ml) creme - $2.48 and $2.88
Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting paper (10 sheets) - $2.00
Strivectn Advanced Retinol Night (7ml) - 15.26
In pamphlet listed as : Double ended Juicy Couture Rollerball (5ml) and Juicy couture La La rollerball (5ml) would be $30.00  - I actually received a 10ml Juicy Couture La La Rollerball - $30.00
St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion Face (5ml) - $3.80
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (4ml) - $8.10
Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse (15ml) - $22.50
Lab Series Multi-Action Face Wash (30ml) - $7.20
Vichy Liftactiv Advanced Concentrate (5ml) - $9.16
Bio Beaute by Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Orange Water (30ml) - Can't find price - worth between $2.00 and $5.00 I think
NeoStrata Youth Factor GF Total Regenerating Serum (7ml) - $18.20
Vitabath Moisturizing Bath and Shower Gelee (60g) - $3.48
Bioderma Sensibo H20 (100ml) - $6.95
Total Value of Products: $228.29 CAD (remember you're would be $18 more if you did in fact receive the lip gloss)
You also get a 20x the point coupon to be used between March 22 and April 4th


And don't forget you also get the clutch everything comes in - which I think it's very nice and it's pretty well the reason I decided to spend the money in the first place. However I don't think its worth $50-70 so you can decide if the spring bonus lives up to its worth $300 claim.

So my conclusion? Personally I won't be using a bunch of stuff that comes in the bag so do I think it's worth the $125 to get it. However I do think it was worth the $40-something dollars I ended up paying after using my points.
