I vividly remember the first time I stepped into the original Abnormal Beauty Company store in the Distillery District in Toronto. I remember walking around the store and being absolutely shocked by the prices. You’re thinking I was shocked because the prices were through the roof expensive when in reality, it was the complete opposite. All the products were beyond reasonably priced.
Since then, I have seen the Abnormal Beauty Company expand to include locations in the Queen West neighbourhood, Financial District (the Path) and Yorkville. I know they have opened up a location in New York but who knows where else is next. 🙂
I really like the philosophy of the company since the products are good quality but priced very low. This allows individuals to explore products he/she may not normally explore and/or use. On the other hand, because these are products mostly broken down into ingredients, it may intimidate individuals who may not be as well versed in the topic of skincare.
I was so sad when the company temporarily closed it doors for a week but I am happy to see it has since reopened. I was in the Yorkville area last week and its Yorkville location is definitely still open.
For newbies, here’s what I would recommend:
The Original Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
This serum contains hyaluronic acid. This ingredient is meant to sit on the surface of your skin to help draw out moisture so that your skin can look more hydrated temporarily. This serum is meant to be used in conjunction with your moisturizer. At $6.90 CAD, how can you go wrong?
Buffet + Copper
The original Buffet formulation is a blend of many anti-aging ingredients. The benefit of adding copper peptides is to help maintain immune system and to help with anti-inflammatory responses. Again, this serum is meant to be used in conjunction with your moisturizer. At $14.90 a bottle (original Buffet formulation) or $28.90 a bottle (with copper peptides), you still getting a steal of a deal given the anti aging properties of this product.
I can’t wait to go back and try more products.
