30 Days of Watsons Beauty - Day 7

What a week it has been! And what better way to end it (or start it depending on how you view Sunday) than featuring my favorite body scrub.

Many of you loyal readers know that I have been using the Asian Secrets Lulur scrub for years now. It's one of the best (maybe the best) body scrubs I've ever used. I'll say this again. I'm not sure about the whitening part though. Maybe because I use it on wet skin, not on dry skin but I don't really care. I love it for its exfoliating benefits.

My favorite is the blue variant. I buy the big tub and it lasts for about 4 uses. Until another product comes out in the market that is better than this, this lulur scrub stays in my bathroom.

A Stroll Through the Newly Opened Daiso Shangri-La

Hey, everyone! We interrupt regular programming with the latest from Daiso.

Yesterday was the grand opening of their newest store in Shangri-La Plaza Mall in Ortigas. I wasn't able to attend the special event but I was able to drop by during lunch time to check out the happenings.

Here are my finds:

These individually-wrapped cotton buds are great for travelling. 

Organize school and office supplies with these handy helpers. 

These acrylic book/iPad stands are very useful. I can use it to hold a cookbook in the kitchen. My son can also use it when he is using the iPad.

Clear boards. What can I say? Black boards, white boards and now clear boards! We use this for art time and other homeschool activities. You can also use it as your memo board. 

These stacking cups remind me so much of our IKEA cups. I couldn't resist and got a pack.

Kitchen mitts! 

I got the bear spoon and fork set for my son. 

For all your ice needs. We love Daiso ice trays because ice pops out easily. 

These watches are adorable! Clean straps and clean faces. 

These clear baggies are also useful if you frequently travel or go on staycations around the city. 

Popsicle calculators.. Budgeting won't be the same again. 

I love the scarves at Daiso. 

For all your cleaning needs. 

Stay tuned for my haul!

30 Days of Watsons Beauty - Day 6

Happy Saturday everyone! Let's continue our 30 days of beauty with Watsons with these charcoal nose pore strips from Body Treats.

I have to admit, I used to snub these brands before. I just didn't have faith in them because I didn't know them. Fortunately, while on a staycation, I felt adventurous and put this product in my basket. That was a good decision indeed because wow, this product is great! My husband and I use it about once a week. It really gets rid of all that yucky stuff in my nose. The last time that I used it, I noticed that there were lesser white and black heads compared to the first time I used it.

It's a really affordable product that will always make an appearance in my shopping basket.

What product would Day 7 bring? Find out tomorrow!

30 Days of Watsons Beauty - Day 5

I love looking at the sales and special promotions rack of Watsons Greenbelt. I always find great bargains there such as these:

I haven't been using Garnier for years but I have to admit. The reason I bought this was because of the super cute summer pouch. 

I mean, how can you resist that?? I am a sucker for pouches. I gave the compact to my cousin as one of her birthday gifts. As for the moisturizer, I'm using it for my elbows and knees. My skin is softer and smoother because of this product.  

As for the pouch, I haven't used it yet. It's waiting for the opportune moment to come out from my pouch stash. 

Tomorrow is Day 6! Are you finding this series useful? interesting? I'd like to hear from you.

30 Days of Watsons Beauty - Day 4

I started this series because I am burning out from mommy and wife duties. I have been a career woman for most of my life, juggling different jobs at the same time. Today I am a SAHM or stay-at-home mom for all you single ladies out there. It's hard being a mom. I love my son and my husband and I love what I do but there are times when I just need a time out and take care of myself. Because of this, I found myself navigating the aisles of Watsons again and other beauty shops and drugstores. Thus, this series was born. One would not know how hard it is to become a mother until she becomes one so I know many of you moms out there can relate.

Moving on, today, let's talk about Oral Health. After all, a great smile is all part of being beautiful. My favorite Watsons product for oral care are these:

These are the flat dental floss picks. I don't like using just the thread variety. I don't like the feel of floss on my fingers. These picks are just right for me. I like using the flat ones because my teeth are too close to each other that the round ones hurt. This is a result of an influx of wisdom teeth. My dentist got one out but the three remaining need some surgery and I don't have time for that now being a devoted SAHM. Good thing, I have these picks to keep my gums and teeth healthy. 

I use this with Colgate Plax mouthwash which my husband got in Watsons HK. 

Join me again tomorrow for Day 5!

30 Days of Watsons Beauty - Day 3

Welcome back! For Day 3, I am featuring this facial sponge from Aqua Massage.

Over the years, I've tried different facial sponges and scrubs from different brands. There were hits and misses. This is definitely a hit! 

The sponge is very gentle on my skin. It comes damp from the plastic. After using it, I give it a good rinse and let it air dry. It becomes really hard when it's dry but it turns super soft again once it's wet. 

There are very few facial products that don't irritate my skin. I'm happy that this one worked well on my face. Plus, the price is great too. This pack will definitely last me a long time. 

I use it with my favorite facial skin cleanser, Physiogel. 

Tomorrow, come back to find out what Day 4 holds.

30 Days of Watsons Beauty - Day 2

Hi, everyone! Glad you can make it again today! Welcome to Day 2 of 30 Days of Watsons Beauty. This is by no means sponsored by Watsons. I just really like spending time (and money) in that store.

For Day 2, I have the classic Nivea Creme in the original blue tin.

This is a very versatile cream. You can use it on your face, hands, body, feet, etc. Some people even use it on their lips. They say that it's great during winter time. However, many are turned off with its very thick texture and consistency. 

As for me, I've had a love-hate relationship with this product growing up. I don't like greasy skin but on the other hand, I have uber dry skin. This product helps a lot. Today, I use it to moisturize my feet and hands before going to sleep. 

I gifted one big tin to my uncle who suffers from very dry skin (like moi). I've heard no complaints. 

I also found this super cute small tin from Watsons Century City. I couldn't resist. They come in different designs but I love this best because of the many pillows. Yeah, I love pillows.

Come join me tomorrow for Day 3!
