Hoarding is fun with Watsons’ Switch & Save products
Posted on

People often ask me for travel tips. I’ll give you a great one: Watsons disposable panties—just because I don’t want to bring home dirty underwear. I’ve been using them for years and it’s only gotten better.
Watsons disposable panties used to be made of paper, but now they are made of polycotton.


I used to hoard these in Hong Kong, but when Watsons opened in the Philippines in 2002, it changed the way we hoard.
I love the Watsons brand because it gives me choices of good, quality products at a much lower price than other brands.
I also love my job. Yesterday Watsons invited me to shop at their Greenbelt 1 store to experience the Watsons Switch & Save products.


Carts are a must. I was assisted by store supervisor Jane Mabao who took me around the store. If not for her I wouldn’t know how many Watsons brand products there are. (Perhaps they should have a dedicated shelf just for it so people would know where the goods deals are?)

We started with my favourite makeup remover round puffs (buy one, take one at Php 89). I use so much of these—first thing in the morning before putting makeup on, and last thing at night for makeup removal.


A must in any girl’s bag are tissues and wet wipes, especially if you’re a mom.


Don’t leave home without these.

Watsons also has the cutest boxed tissues in a pack of three

On your red days, you’ll save more if you switch to Watsons sanitary napkins (Php 74 for 24 pads).

I remember when these were the newest things and the first time I tried them. The word “forest” comes to mind.
Nose pore strips are Php 119 for a pack of ten

Got kids? Watsons has a Looney Tunes line just for them, like the top-to-toe foaming baby wash at Php 299, buy one-take one

And so much more! I ended up with five baskets for our household of 14. Not bad for Php 7000. Nobody in the house has to buy shampoo and shower gel for the rest of 2014.


I also got a Watsons tote bag, zippered pouch and fat bottle of hand soap—for free!

i’d suggest buying light nylon or microfibre underwear (i love the nude ones from CK na walang VPL). wash it in the shower and it dries so easily kahit with a hairdryer lang. better for the environment too!



Wow what a brilliant idea! I forgot about their disposable panties. Thank you so much for sharing this. Will remember to buy the next time we travel.



I am such a light packer when I travel and disposable panties are my secret weapon! Well, “were” as in past tense. One time kasi, nung bago pa lang kami ni Vince, we went out of town and he saw me wearing the disposable panties (this was 15 years ago when disposables were ugly) and he was, like… NOOOOO! LOL! So I never used disposables again!!! Will try Watsons nga! Thanks!!!



I’m a frequent customer at Watsons, especially a bit of a hoarder for the cream hand soaps and the refills. For some reason, there’s a brand of body wash that they sometimes make buy1take1, then make it buy1 only. We switched to another brand that’s bigger and more sulit to the budget.



Gotta love Watsons! I used to purchase the BOGO (buy one get one) round cotton puffs but when I did the math I started buying the rectangular puffs (sans Tweety). The round puffs cost P 89 for 200 sheets (2 x 100 sheets), while the rectangular ones cost P 69 for 210 sheets (150+60) – that’s P 0.45/sheet vs. P 0.33/sheet. You won’t make a fortune of it but it’d be good to point out for the spendthrift ones out there 🙂



i love watsons! but everytime i buy a BUY1GET1 product (wrapped together), one bottle’s nozzle is always defective. 🙁 but anyway that does not stop me from hoarding their great deals! 🙂



I don’t like bringing home used undies too! Meron din kayang for men?
