Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to share whatever limited knowledge I have of products in Canada (I'm located in Toronto). Please share with everyone where you have found the lowest prices for certain products. Let's help each other out!

I've only recently begun to start buying OTC products, and I've quickly learned that Shoppers Drug Mart isn't the cheapest place! Don't fall for the lure of the optimum card! lol... [-X

Here's what I found so far:
*Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF15 - Dominion's ($11.99 + tax)
*Neutrogena On-The-Spot 2.5% BP - Dominion's ($8.99 + tax) --> (Shoppers drug mart $7.99 + tax on sale once)
*Clean & Clear Blackhead Scrub Exfoliant - Zellers ($7.77 + tax) [updated]
*Clean & Clear Contiuous Control 5% BP - Dominion's ($8.49 + tax)

Needless to say, I shouldn't have gone to Shoppers Drug Mart first. I would've saved myself a good chunk of change eh? (Ya Canada!)

Today's buys:

Omega Nutrition Apple Cider Vinegar 5% acetic acid - $3.19 @ Noah's Natural Foods (yeah it's cheaper elsewhere, but this one is organic. I'm a sucker for it now)

Jason Natural Cosmetics - Natural NcPCA Lotion - $5.89 @ Noah's Natural Foods

Various Jojoba oils $16.99-$18.99 @ Noah's Natural Foods (I didn't pick any up though)

Keep it up!

I was wondering if Neutrogena Clear Pore on the spot is the same as 'on the spot' that everyone else gets because thats the only one i can find and its a little more expensive (around $12 at Shopper's Drug Mart)...also the box is slightly different

I usually buy my stuff at Walmart, ha ha. If not there, I buy it at my work... "The Real Canadian Superstore". They're just starting to open up the stores in Ontario.... And I found them to be cheaper with certain products compared to Walmart! eusa_dance.gif But usually Walmart is the cheapest!

For Toronto Area or GTA only

There's a powder dollar store on Jane/Wilson in the Plaza where you see Fortinos beside the store is Soctiabank.

This store sells Spectro Jel 473ml the purple one fragrance free sensitive acne prone and the blue one for dry skin scented is about $3.49 this so cheap for this size and for those who love Spectro Jel products!!

Also a $0.99 cents store located at Jane/Wilson in Sheridan North York Mall has Spectro Jel for Dry skin only 473 ml at $2.99 which is a steal.
Also they have the purple ones too but it's only in a 90ml bottle and it costs 2 for $0.99 which is real cheap too

so those who love Spectro Jel's line vouch for these savings!!!!

The first store is called Power Dollar or something like that the store is on the plaza where you see Fortinos and when you walk up you can see ScotiaBank beside Socita Bank is that dollar store go into Aisle 2 and you should find it. I went again today to buy other stuff for skool and they still had some Blue ones left they only had 4 purple ones left so get it b4 it runs out.

As for the other one it's just called the $0.99 cents store it's located on the 2nd floor below the mall and is located near the library and it looks like there's another store attatched to it. Go to the Soap section on where they sell Soap and Shampoo they should have it on the last row for the 90ml bottles for the blue big bottle for $2.99 they have it on the same section but you have to really look around since its in a small area and its there about 10 bottles left seems no one is buying this stuff.

Since personally who would actually wash their face with dollar store products? i was amazed on seeing Spectro Jel and i opened 1 to smell it to see if it was the same and not some rip-off and it's the same~!

2 for $1.15 is a can't go wrong cost its the 90ml each ones

Good luck to all and hope that helps since stores like Walmart charge about at least $8 or higher

Actaully, if you along Kennedy Rd. where there are a lot of outlets, they sell spectro jel fairly cheap.
Depending which store you go to, they sell between 3 to 5 bottles for $0.99. But it's the free sample size bottle.

Any fans of Neutrogena Products?

Well Shoppers is having AGAIN another sale on them this week.

All 25% off so products range from $3.99-$7.99

If you love the Neutrogena Body wash scrub like I do it's $5.99 for it.
