Hello there! Did you miss me? I know, I know. I should be punished for not posting anything on this blog for almost 4 months now and to tell you the truth, I’m still surprised why my account hasn’t been deactivated because of prolonged absence. I won’t be writing anything grand for my comeback but instead I’ll just be random and talk to you folks about my small Watson’s haul today. 🙂 I have tried these products for 4 hours up to now so what I’m about to write here are my first thoughts about these new items.
I’ll go from left to right.
Pantene All Day Smooth Miracle Water
Yup, water. Expensive water for that matter. The rainy season is over and the sun has come to stay. I hate the sun and what it does to my hair. My sister shares the same dilemma too. We found ourselves broke with our “mall allowance” but determined to find a cure to our dry hair problem. We went to Watsons and went through the hair section’s shelves. A bunch of products were in array, but one particular product caught our eye. Ain’t it obvious? I had some extra money put aside for my personal expenses but what the hell I NEEDED to try it. So voila! P265 went poof! First off, it smells really good, like other Pantene products do. It dissolves quickly when applied to the hair with no residue so that’s a plus. Most hair waxes or leave-ons leave off a little white pigment after application. About effectiveness and its promise to beat dryness and humidity in any weather, I still have to find out! 🙂
Maybelline Baby Lips SPF 20 Lip Balm
Was about to to hit the counter when I passed by the cosmetics section and yes, I am such an impulsive shopper. I realized I was almost running out of my Vaseline Lip Therapy and I wanted to opt for a flavored lip balm so I put this in my cart. If I remember correctly, this Maybelline Lip Balm had 5 flavors. I almost picked up the green one with menthol but the sister got in the way by telling me “Amo na bakla kay damo gabakal. Kita mo manugubos na?” Kudos to Pau for being a clever shopper. I bought the one in salmon and my fave color, aquamarine, in Smoothing Cherry flavor. This lip balm claims to give you “instant 8-hour moisture rejuvenated lips in one week”. You had me at moisture and rejuvenated, don’t care how long I have to use it as long as it works. I have chapped lips too. 😦 It’s so creamy I want to eat it everytime I put it on. The pain!
Garnier BB Eye Roll-on
If I have to repeat myself again, I am not a big fan of Garnier products except their eye products. They work! Another impulsive buy again. Spotted this on the way out of SM. It’s not my fault it was the last one on the shelf and it was staring at me with watery eyes telling me “Buy me! Buy me!” And you know me, I can’t say no to something that wants to be bought. 😉 (bad excuse) The BB Eye Roll-on is no eye treatment. I think it’s only for coverage purposes. It does have a cooling sensation when applying so I guess it helps a bit with the puffiness. I also needed a concealer because these eyes have been stressed out too much so it gives me the right amount of dark eye circle coverage. The eye treatment I’m using right now is Celeteque Eye Tuck plus Dark Circles Lightener. It definitely helps a lot! I use it at night so it doesn’t get mixed up with my daily Olay regimen. Layering skin products could sometimes be difficult and ineffective. One at a time lang ah.
After checking out, the cashier gave me a P100 voucher. You could use it on your next purchase with a minimum of P1000. I asked her if I could use 2 or more vouchers in 1 purchase and she said only 1 voucher per receipt. Pft so much for collecting vouchers, to the trash you go!
By the way, there’s a big discount at Girbaud for members! 30% for 1 item, 40 for 2 and 50 for 3 or more items. Just living up to my word of a random post. 🙂
Also, I bought new pillows off of my paycheck. Wee! I’m super duper excited to sleep tonight! 🙂
Thank you to this one person who reminded me to blog again. This goes out to you!
