I don't know about you, but Daiso is definitely a store where I could spend about an hour at by just browsing through all of their stuff and trying to find some uses for each one. Seriously though, they have almost anything you never thought that you would need or maybe something that's a cheaper alternative to what you actually want.
Walking out of a Daiso store empty handed seems almost impossible from what I witnessed except for maybe when you already bought everything you needed from there. Though you gotta admit that sometimes, it's a hit or miss. Sometimes what we end up buying just isn't upto par with what we expected it to be, it's not even that but Daiso definitely gives you that mindset that "oh, this is cheap" and you end up grabbing a ton of things to have a very expensive bill when you check out at the counter. With that, and to save some of you from all the money and trouble, here are my all time favorite purchases and what I would recommend you get from Daiso:
I have been looking for a pair like these for awhile now. I do know that Birkenstock has them but I did wanted something where the price is a little bit cheaper. Then I went to Daiso and saw these for PHP 88. I wasn't aware that the sizes were a size bigger than usual since I am pretty sure I'm a size 37 but these are kinda big on me, and no, I wasn't able to try them on before buying them because I had shoes and socks on at that time and didn't really feel like taking them off especially with so many people around that aisle too. But hey, it still looks nice, it is a little bit uncomfortable during the first time I wore them but after awhile, it felt okay to wear when you have some quick errands to run and you just need something to slip on that looks good.
I'm pretty sure everybody's aware of this because this has been selling out on so many Daiso branches near my place. Basically it helps you separate everything but still keep them all in one place (if that makes sense). This is for you to organize things inside of your drawer or maybe a lipstick holder like what I do.
This little thing is what me and my mom have been trying to find everywhere. We did manage to find something exactly similar at a store in SM, but they sell it for PHP 1099 and this little guy in Daiso was only PHP 188. It's also an alarm clock (and I could tell you that it's very loud) and has a light switch that you can press if you wanna know what time it is when you're in the dark.
- Portable fan
It's just so hot here in the Philippines-- that when you are out and about, you can't help but fan yourself because you are just constantly sweating. I found this on Daiso and you just need 2 AA batteries for it and you can carry it around. Pretty much a life saver.
- 5 in 1 Beauty care massager
This is another product that has been selling out on all of the Daiso branches. I use this mainly for massaging my face and cleansing my skin. It has 5 types of brushes, 1 crude polish accessory to rip the tough skin and cutin off, 1 latex soft sponge for eye, cheek massaging, 1 make-up sponge to massage and clean your skin, 1 rolling massager to make better blood circumstances from skin aging (I always use this one) and 1 soft brush to clear up all the scurf clings on the surface (which I use to cleanse my face). This on'es price is PHP 188 and just needs 1 AA battery.
- Brush cleaner
Most beauty enthusiast that I know of have tried and loved this product because it definitely does it's job on cleaning out your makeup brush thoroughly. Plus, it's only PHP 88 and it smells nice. I actually made a review on this so if you wanna check that out, click here.
So those are all of my favorites from Daiso and if you have any recommendations for me to get from that store, leave a comment below and tell me if you've tried out any of the things I mentioned.
