I did it, I braved The Body Shop Singapore Warehouse Sale at Suntec down in the city after work. It was slightly spontaneous, and I was daunted by the thought of hundreds of other women jostling their way through for the same reason I would be there, but I couldn’t resist the thought of discounted pink grapefruit-scented products calling out to me – so off I went in pursuit of them (among other things)!
Below is my haul. It may be little, but it still warms my heart.
Read on for descriptions and prices!
Two bottles of shower gel – pink grapefruit and pomegranate – for SGD14.90. They normally retail at SGD12.90 a bottle.
Two exfoliating skin towels, SGD 5 each. These normally retail at SGD9.90 apiece.
A 50ml tub of peppermint intensive foot rescue for SGD5. Regular retail price: SGD21.90 for a 100ml tub . A 50ml tub of sweet lemon body butter for the younger sister for SGD5. Regular retail price: SGD29.90 for a 200ml tub. I like these smaller ones (usually only found in gift sets) because they’re easier to tote around and they don’t take light years to finish.
Two 60ml bottles of pink grapefruit body puree, one 60ml bottle of pink grapefruit shower gel and one 60ml bottle of sweet lemon shower gel for my younger sister for SGD10 in total. These handy-sized babies are normally sold in packs, not individually, so this was particularly fun for me.
I also bought a small makeup pouch for SGD3 – something to toss staple makeup items into so it’s easier to transfer them all between handbags and purses.
All in all, the trip was completely worth the long train ride down. The markdowns were quite impressive, and all the products I picked up expire in 2012 of 2013 when normally, most price-slashed warehouse sale products are cheap because they’re close to expiring. A couple of girlfriends met me there, and they couldn’t resist the prices and selection either. Upon coming home, one of my housemates decided after inspecting my haul that she was heading down first thing next morning.
I guess my final point is this, ladies: if there’s a good warehouse sale on, go for it! The bang for your buck is worth the gently elbowing overzealous fellow shoppers out of your way. It really is.
