Shoppers Turns 60

August 18, 2022

From a cameo in an early Drake track to the best points program in the biz (hello, Optimum Points!), we’ve loved Shoppers Drug Mart our whole lives (seriously; we got our ears pierced there back in the 1980s!).

Indeed, over the last 60 years, Shoppers Drug Mart has been there for Canadians. Whether it’s a diaper run in the middle of the night, treating yourself to a new lipstick, or seeking pharmacy advice, millions of Canadians have visited a local Shoppers Drug Mart for many of their life moments. To help celebrate this milestone, the retailer has pinpointed some customer favourites in celebration of the anniversary. The collection includes an assortment of customer favourites in the skin, body, hair, oral care and snacks aisles, and new products that Canadians are sure to enjoy. No matter your preference, there’s something for everyone to get excited about. Among the top picks:

  • Naturally Serious Get Even Cold-Pressed Peel Pads: These gentle no-rinse peel pads naturally exfoliate with Pomegranate Enzyme to smooth and reduce the look of uneven texture. Oat Extract helps soothe the look of skin, while Sodium PCA helps give your complexion a hydrated glow.
  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser: The #1 Selling Facial Cleanser in Canada with a new and improved formulation. Now with hydrating glycerin, vitamin B3 (niacinamide) and vitamin B5 (panthenol). It is clinically proven and provides 2-in-1 (dual) action of effective moisturization while gently cleansing.
  • Philips One by Sonicare Sage Rechargeable Toothbrush: Always be ready to touch up your smile, no matter where the day takes you. Micro vibrations and tapered bristles polish teeth for a brighter smile. Features a colorful design and sleek travel case with a 2 Minute Timer and a USB Charger.
  • Burt’s Bees Tropical Pineapple Moisturizing Lip Balm: Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Balms nourish and make your lips feel luxurious. Infused with powerful fruit extracts and Beeswax to richly moisturize and soften lips, the nourishing oils and butters will make your lips feel happy and healthy.
