Buying local - shampoo etc

Hello - here's a question for someone who has been --- we are staying in Lima, in Cusco and in Quito over the next few weeks -- how easy is it to get to a local shop for 'small' supplies e.g. shampoo etc etc --- I'm hoping we will be able to stock up in each of these for the following week or so when we are out of an urban area e.g. Galapagos, Titcaca etc. If it is easy it would make better sense than carrying all this with us.

We had to buy toothpaste and shampoo in Quito and it was no problem. There were lots of little stores with those sorts of things.
