On Beauty: The Impromptu Purchase

I just got back from Shopper Drug Mart. I went there because I wanted to try to find something similar to a dermatological cream I used London. I found something similar, but before finding, I found something else.
A package full of beauty items I didn't plan to purchase. I made a quick calculation.
I will need toothpaste soon, and that alone is $2. I wouldn't mind trying that coconut scrub. Even though the package is priced $8.99, it is discounted to $7.99.

The content:Satin Care Shave gel
Lady Speed Stick Anti-Perspirant
Nivea Essentials
Colgate Total toothpaste
Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion
Veet Wax Strips
Aveeno Volumizing Mousse
Coconut Scrub Softsoap Bodywash
Pantene Shampoo
Pantene Conditioner
Schick Quattro Razor
Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel-Cream Sample

I know, I won't use some of the items in the box, but WOW, the total value of the items is more than $54.00. That's the reason I bought something I didn't plan to purchase.

Have you ever bought a beauty item on a whim due to value for money?

Yes, all the time I find myself wondering if I should buy something because it is a good deal. I just weigh the options to see what is the best cost saving for me.

Looks like you got a good deal.

Oh wow...all those great items for under $10! That's a great deal. I used to impulse shop too when I had credit cards now more. But that's a pretty awesome deal!

Wow! That's a great deal! I never find good deals like that...except the one time I could buy 3 boxes of tampons for the price of one. That was kind of embarrassing. =/
