Look what magically appeared in front of me!
Okay, I fell in the same hole of “Oh My God, a Normal store just opened in Odense” as everyone else. But I actually restrained myself very well and only bought things I actually needed/didn’t have, except for a single little eyeshadow palette which my ever-helping boyfriend tried to talk me out of (“Babe, aren’t you going to buy more stuff? Honey, look, you didn’t check this entire row out at all” – no, I know, I was trying NOT to!)
I was really amazed at the kewl stuff they have in there and my boyfriend was pretty much over the moon, too – while they may have a lot of female customers for a reason, no guy would walk in there feeling like he couldn’t find something nice for himself. So, what did we get?
From the left:
* Pretty Smooth Assorted Wax Strips – 21 kr

* Athena Beaute Shaving Gel – 15 kr
* Angelica Perfume – 29,-
* Jimmy Too Perfume – 29,-
* Rexona Roll On – 12 kr
* W7 Catwalk Complexion Compact Powder – 29,-
* W7 Purple Haze Eyeshadows – 25 kr
* Stackable Body Wash Poppy – 10 kr
Yes, I got a Batiste dry shampoo like every single other person who has visited Normal. But really, I ran out of dry shampoo two weeks ago and nothing I’ve found so far has smelled like something I didn’t gag over. And while Batiste is far from the cheapest dry shampoo ever, at least it smells nice and not like you were desperately trying to save your hair with something you found in your grandma’s closet (really, did I mention I don’t like the smell of most dry shampoos out there? Because I really don’t)
The perfumes are so nice, and for that price I just had to get two. W7 products I usually buy online but I figured I might as well try it out now that it was right in front of me, right? 😉 Normal has testers for everything so I swatched the Purple Haze eyeshadows (and ruined my entire no-buying-things-I-have challenge) and I swatched the powder since I’m running really low on what I have at home. Well, the swatch was perfect. Too bad some people find it funny to rearrange things so I got one that’s a shade darker than it should have been. Not nice, people… don’t do that!
The Rexona roll on is nice and cheap, the was strips ditto, and the body wash I bought because it was tiny and I love tiny things to no end. I’ve tried the shaving gel alreadt and I have to say, I’m pretty amazed. I usually have to use that super expensive Gillette sensitive because my legs itch so much after just a normal shower so you can’t even imagine what happens if I use something on my legs that isn’t “me-proofed”. But this doesn’t make me break out or turn red or anything! I wish it foamed a little more but that’s just because I’m a child inside and like foam – it does it’s job flawlessly and for 15 kr it’s definitely not the last time I’m buying this!
My boyfriend got a few things as well, though only three care-related things (the rest was candy and such) but I still think you should see it, if you’re having trouble dragging your boyfriends to a Normal store or you’re a guy interested in what they can offer you.
I don’t remember the exact prices but they were all somewhere around 15-20 kr each, so really affordable as well. And they have so much to choose from that you’re bound to find something you both like.
All in all, YAY for Normal! The only thing I don’t understand about their entire (amazing) concept is their name – why “Normal”? I feel like I’m not getting some inside joke, but then again, in this heat it’s amazing I’m even functioning somewhat.
Have you been to a Normal store yet? Do you want to or do you think it’s just over-hyped?
