Ever the bargain-hunter, my mom’s Top 5 list of value shopping destinations surely includes a Daiso. I kid you not: She easily spends an hour browsing through the shelves, regardless of how big or small that particular Daiso is. When I accompany her, I have to find a way to amuse myself as she hoards hand soap and tissue paper. That usually involves scouring the beauty section for something interesting. Here’s my simple collective haul:
1. Sleeping Pack with Hyaluronic Acid — A clear, non-sticky gel that smells exactly like the Biore Facial Wash I used growing up, this face mask acts more like a light moisturizer that I can use as an alternative to creamy moisturizers.
2. Mix Cheek Powder No. 2 — Doesn’t this remind you of a certain Box O’ Powder? I’m not creative when it comes to using multi-colored blushes, so I tend to swirl the brush over everything. This time, I think I’ll experiment with the colors and highlights.
3. Cotton Pads — This is actually my second set of cotton pads purchased from Daiso. I’ve had no trouble with them, and a pack lasts me months!
The only thing I lament is that the Daiso in the Philippines doesn’t have enough crafting products. A family friend from abroad gave me a cool set of knitting needles she got from Daiso US. The focus for Daiso Philippines is mostly on kitchen and household products.
Have you found anything special at your local Daiso?
