New and Notable at Shoppers Drug Mart - Beyonce, Jergens, Harajuku Lovers and L'Oréal!

Beyonce Pulse - 50ml EDT - $59, 100ml EDT $75 - a unique citrus, floral gourmand anchored by Beyonce's favorite flower, the orchid. With top notes of Pear Blossom, Blue Curacao accord and Bergamot; heart notes of Bluebird Orchid, Peony and Midnight Blooming Jasmine; and base notes of Madagascar Vanilla, Musk and precious Woods. It comes in a very cool looking bottle which I think looks kind of futuristic. Strangely, when I first sprayed it on it smelled kind of like cough syrup, of course I've had a cold for the past month and have drunk so much of the stuff that it's probably seeping out of my pores - once it dried down it smelled very warm and a little sweet on me - this could just be my winter fragrance!
Jergens Overnight Fix Nightly Restoring Moisturizer - 480ml - $8.99 - a light and silky moisturizer made with a rich blend of pure Evening Primrose extract - to help alleviate dry irritated skin and anti-oxidant vitamins from exotic superfoods - Goji Berries and Camu Camu - known to help reduce free radical damage - that replenishes skin's moisture reserves and quenches dry skin as you sleep to alleviate a full week's worth of dryness in just one night for visibly smoother, softer skin.

Which kind of sounded like marketing-speak crap to me so I had to try it for myself! To be fair I do usually remember to use a body moisturizer every day so my skin isn't super dry or neglected - or at least that's what I thought but seriously after using the Jergens just one night my skin felt unbelievably soft the next morning! The only thing I'm not stoked about is the smell, it's a little too floral for my taste but since it doesn't seem to linger, I can deal. As the weather gets colder and my skin dries out more, I can see this being a lifesaver!
Biotherm Vivo Uniformity Renovating Anti-Age Moisturizer SPF 15 - 50ml - $70 - helps to visibly unify skin's appearance and help with the 5 key irregularities that make skin look older: dark spots, redness, dull tone, rough skin and loss of elasticity - hydrated, redness caused by dry skin appears reduced, dark spots appear kiminished, skin appears brighter and its elasticity looks visibly restored. Contains an innovative new filtering technology that protects the skin from external daily UV damage.

Biotherm Vivo Uniformity Anti-Dark Spots Reversive Concentrate - 15ml - $50 - reduces the appearance of dark spots and helps improve skin's uniformity with visible results after 4 weeks. Contains ingredients that reduce melanin production and formation that alter skin's uniformity which can make it look prematurely older.
Harajuku Lovers Jingle G - 10ml - $19.99 - it's a fragrance, it's an ornament and it's utterly adorable! An oriental fragrance with top notes of white star fruit, tangerine and gardenia; heart notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom; and base notes of vanilla, cedar and benzoin.
And once you've finished shopping for yourself, how about something for the boy: L'Oréal Men Expert has a few new products designed specifically to help combat the top signs of aging and ensure smoother, softer skin: Men Expert Vita Lift Complete Anti-Aging Daily Moisturizer - 50ml - $15.99 - provides skin with the added nourishment and hydration it needs to survive the cold weather - smooths wrinkles, firm up skin and decreases overall puffiness while helping to brighten skin and reduce dullness; Men Expert Shave Gel Hydra Energizing - 200ml - $6.99 - with vitamin C and cooling agents for an icy effect to soothe razor burn and provide a close, smooth shave without all the irritation; Men Expert Vita Lift Complete Anti-Aging Eye Roll-On - 10ml - $15.99 - depuffs under-eye bags, reduces dark circles, smooths wrinkles, strengthens eyelids and firms under-eye skin for a more youthful, rested and bright-eye look.
