Trying New Products

Happy New Year,everyone! So much has happened since my last update. My son and I went to Singapore on short notice because my SIL needed us. We spent several days there and my husband followed to celebrate his birthday over the weekend. I was able to buy a few new products which I will feature here soon.

Today, I will share with you this lip balm find from the local Watsons.

It looks like an EOS knock off so I checked the back. It's made in the US and not from China. My SIL doesn't buy stuff made in China and ever since I spent time with her, I became interested in knowing where the items I buy are made from. But of course, we all know that everything is made in China these days. I guess it's just a matter of brand recognition and trust for me. There are still great products out there from recognized brands that have transferred their operations to China. They still use their production standards so I'm not really worried.

Anyways, I really like this lip balm. I was super stressed when I bought this and needed to have some stress shopping but I didn't want to blow a  ton of money. I thought this would satisfy my inner/hidden shopaholic goddess.

I think this comes in 2 or 3 flavors. I chose the watermelon one because watermelon is one of our favorite fruits. I was worried that it would taste awful but it just has the right hint of watermelon flavor. I also didn't have high hopes for its moisturizing properties but it performed surprisingly well. I believe this is less than 100 pesos. I also like its tiny size as you can see in this photo.

I vowed to buy only small or regular sized products when I got home from Singapore because one, we are lacking in space (toys have taken over) and two, I need to finish the products before they expire. I used to buy really big lotions and toiletries but it takes so long to finish them. There are times when I just want to try something new but couldn't because I wanted to finish the opened one first before it expires. So now, I buy the small stuff. Aside from these benefits, they also look cute on my vanity and I save a ton of space.

So much has happened in the past two months and my life has been so hectic. I hope now that I have a new routine and schedule in place that I can blog more. Fingers crossed. A blessed New Year to everyone!
