Post Cheapest Canadian Prices!!!

31 posts in this topic

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!)

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!

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

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.

Wow that dollarstore sounds sweet! I live north of T.O. though don't think I'd make it there for that. The Great Canadian Superstore/centre though (previously Loblaws) is pretty cheap for all washes/toiletries. Shoppers seems to be the most expensive, aside from sale times.

Morning

Face Wash: Garnier soft foaming face wash for Dry/Combo skin

Moisturizer: Garnier Pure A daily moisturizer with zinc and SA

Makeup: Revlon soft-flex colorstay makeup

Night

Face Wash: Garnier soft foaming face wash for Dry/Combo skin

The cheapest place to buy otc products in my small town is Extra Foods. ( it's owned by superstore i think) I shop at walmart or superstore when i'm in the city though. I also work at a drugstore and get a 10% discount there, so that can sometimes work out pretty good.


My Regimen

Morning: Wash with Clean and Clear continuous control acne cleanser (5% BP)

tone with aloe vera gel + a shot of MaryKay blemish control toner (2%SA)

apply alphahydrox 10% AHA cream

Night: Cleanse face with clean and clear continuous control acne cleanser (5% BP)

Apply alphahydrox 10% AHA cream

Additional: Daily, 25mg of Zinc, occasional exfoliation w/aspirin mask

I always check Wal-mart first. I found Desert Essence 100% Jojoba Oil at Real Canadian Superstore for $15. As to the other products, I found the price to be similar to Wal-Marts. Perhaps a $1 or less difference, I would still go to Wal-Mart though.

Shopper's is only good when it has sales.
