Make your Summer Fun & Sun-Proof with Watsons | Promos, Freebies and Prizes

Sunblock is not the cheapest beauty product and is often ignored by many of us – until we see the signs of aging caused by sun damage. Every summer we are reminded of the importance to apply sunblock on our face and body. Kids are especially susceptible to sunburn when playing in the sand and swimming for hours. Make your summer fun, safe, and healthy by being equipped with the right summer products.

FREE Floaters when you shop at Watsons

The best time to buy sunblock for your summer outing is before you go! Sunblock lotions are more expensive to buy in resorts compared to stores like Watsons. You’ll be amazed at the top of the line sunblock options that are now available here: Nivea, Vaseline, Banana Boat, Beach Hut, Solstice, Biore, Sunplay, Belo, Neutrogena, Cetaphil, Celeteque, Kojie San, Hawaiian Tropic, Dermplus, Ponds, and Olay, plus when you buy from Watsons like I did – you will get freebies like trendy giant donut floaters!

FREE Nivea floater when you buy P700 worth of Nivea sunblock/products

For our next summer outing, I shopped for sunblock at Watsons. I carefully read the promos and checked out each brand’s promos. Ultimately, I came home with 1 beach ball, 1 donut inflatable floater, and 1 Nivea ring floater – total of 3 freebies that will make our summer more fun.

FREE Donut floater for every P1,400 receipt. I just bought other essentials to reach the amount. These inflatable donut salbabidas can cost up to P1,200 in online stores!

From all the brands that Watsons have in store, I personally use Nivea for me and my son. I’ve been using it for many swimming activities already and I like how it has a “porcelain” effect on our skin. Just reapply every now and then.

Watsons Summer Treat for SM Advantage Card (SMAC) holders

SM Advantage Card Members can also get a chance to explore the wonders of the Philippine islands with getaways for four to Batanes, Boracay, Cebu, Davao, and Palawan. Just buy participating products and for every PHP500 single-receipt purchase, you get 1 e-raffle entry. The promo is from February 23 – April 26, 2017.

Do not lose your e-raffle stub!

Enjoy your summer Mommy and Baby! Please don’t be lazy in applying sunblock, your skin will thank you for it :)

Online Christmas Shopping with Shopback.ph

how to shopback

Only a few days left before Christmas but many of us have not had time to shop for gifts and treats. Maybe it’s not just time that scarce but also budget. For this year, I only set P3,000 budget for buying Christmas gifts for my family. It’s also the first time I am shopping from online Christmas Sales versus going to the mall to get their gifts. Coupons and vouchers allow me to buy more items online, I get these codes for Zalora and Lazada from Shopback.ph but I never tried their cashback program until now.

How to sign up at Shopback.PH to get cashbacks from Lazada and Zalora

shopback website

1. Sign up with your Facebook account or email – I signed up via email because my Facebook won’t connect for some reason.

2. Once logged in, select the store you want to shop in – when you select a shopping site i.e. Lazada, you will be redirected to the store. Stay on that redirected window so that Shopback.ph can track your purchase and reward you with cashbacks.

If these steps are not enough, you can download their browser extension and never miss cashback again.

Benefits of shopping at ShopBack.Ph

Make it a habit to go to Shopback.ph first to access your favorite online merchants. Here are top 2 reasons why I do this now:

1. Find vouchers to use at your favorite online stores – and these vouchers, coupon codes really work unlike from fake sites with many ads. View all Lazada vouchers, coupons and sales at their page.

2. Earn cashbacks - on top of the vouchers and extra discounts, ShopBack will return 9-12% of your shopping cart’s value to your account. This is good as cash and can be paid out to your PayPal or bank account!

Watch: Shopping with Shopback at Lazada

This is my first time shopping for Christmas gifts online and it allowed me to focus on the quality of gifts versus queing in line, walking around shopping isles, etc.

The only thing left to do when they arrive is to wrap them up!

I also saved money with Lazada’s in-store discount and the cashbacks I will earn because I shopped with Shopback.ph. Shopback points will be added to your account within 2 days of confirmed transaction.

Shopping with Shopback at Zalora

Again, just shop as usual and try not to open too many tabs when shopping. Stay on the redirected page from Shopback. I saved enough money from my budget which means I could buy a nice swimwear for an upcoming trip to Batangas. I also use PayPal when shopping and are excited to reach P300 cashbacks so I can use it to shop again online.

Here’s a list of everything I bought with just P3,000:

shopback haul

1.       Stunning black two-piece swimwear from Zalora

2.       Relaxing Uratex pillow from Lazada

3.       Hotel quality blanket from Lazada

4.       Two (2) aromatic air diffuser from Lazada

 

My Shopback points:

Shopping online is very convenient especially this holiday, it’s a more enjoyable experience too for many moms like me who have endless tasks at home and at work. I consider myself a newbie at online shopping, so far I only like shopping at Zalora and Lazada but you can find more shops at Shopback.ph to try. Check out the Sephora promos and cashback! Super happy with all the time, energy, and money I saved!

Toys R’ Us Uptown Mall BGC – Top Toy Finds!

Just in time for Christmas, the newest Toys R’ Us opened at the 3rd floor of the new Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City. One of the advantages of toy shopping at Toys R’ Us Uptown Mall is its more relaxed and family friendly environment.

I learned about the store’s opening from my mommy friends on Facebook whose kids are Star Wars fans just like Ashton. This weekend we were in BGC and decided to drop by. 

The Uptown Mall branch is not as bustling with shoppers compared to other toy stores BUT, the range of toys and choices is the same – if not better because of the mall’s target market. For instance, Toys R’ Us Uptown Mall is the most updated when it comes to Star Wars Rogue Wars toys and merchandise.

Star Wars Rogue Wars Movie figures, micro machines, puzzles, and more.
Ashton is so curious about this huge Star Wars toy box which I guess contains a mega size X wing or Tie Fighter.

 

Toys R Us is also celebrating their 10th anniversary and in time for Christmas, are running generous sales & discounts on toys. Just like these Star Wars Lego Sets.

Star Wars Rogue Wars Micro Machines at Toys R Us Uptown Mall

Star Wars Rogue Wars Micro machines are affordable around P300, so we agreed to buy it. My son has other Star Wars mico machines and I recommend it because kids can spend a lot of time role-playing or making stories with these Star Wars mini-figures. In one box, you usually get 3 pcs.

Download the StarWars Studio Effects App (as seen on the box) so your child will enjoy the mini-figures even more and spend more time playing with the toys.

Gadget-Free Family Fun & Games at Toys R Us Uptown Mall

If you’re like me who wants to promote gadget-free time with the family, you should try bringing home some of these toys. Ashton and I started a mini game library that is similar to what trendy cafes have (interactive old-school games that we grew up with like Connect 4, Battle Ship, Master Mind, etc.)

Connect 4 by Hasbro – we already have this and it’s one of the firsts we bought a few months ago. It can be played by two players and whoever connects 4 of the same colored dots wins. We enjoy playing this game every night. We also have the Grab & Go version of Hungry Hippo. All of the Grab & Go games of Hasbro come in handy size and shape, uniform box size that is easy to stack & carry anywhere. That’s why we like it.

Trouble Game by Hasbro – this is our new find & buy at Toys R Us Uptown Mall, looks like an easy game to play for mother/father and child without too many pieces too.

Bingo Lotto Game – all for family fun, nice to have and play this Christmas with relatives too. Boredom proof your Noche Buena :)

Snakes and Ladder – one of the easiest board games, make sure you have this in your toy library to enjoy with your kids, family, and friends.

Parents like me will love this Family Fun & Games zone at Toys R Us, so many new board games too. It’s also the first time I noticed the Pavillion brand of toys that carry board games, chess sets, tumbling towers, and more. I am on the look out for a very good chess set that me and my husband can play together.

There are a total of 7 super organized zones in Toys R Us Uptown Mall, BGC. Boys and girls toys also have their own area which cuts your shopping and browsing time and makes it a more enjoyable shopping experience for the whole family.

More Toys R Us Finds for Christmas 2016

Old school walkie talkie – when we were kids, I always wanted to have these and enjoyed receiving pair to play with my friends and sisters. Let’s allow our children to experience the same wonder of an old-school walkie talkie toy!

Science & Physics Kit – is your child starting to get interested in building things, robotics, or science in general? I found this Science & Physics Kit that’s just around P500. It will teach children to build simple machines with gears, levers, and pulleys that they will build themselves with the materials inside.

Crayola Meltdown Art Set – most of our kids would have seen this on YouTube and it’s here in Toys R Us Uptown Mall!

WATCH: Toys Hunting at Toys R Us Uptown Mall, BGC

Top toy finds according to my son because my list above may not be the same as what kids like him would like! :)

We had a very pleasant shopping and bonding experience at Toys R Us and we hope to visit again when we’re around BGC. Maybe we’ll do our Christmas shopping here for Ashton’s classmates and our kiddie friends. Since it’s not packed with shoppers and is very organized, shopping at Toys R Us Uptown Mall is an enjoyable experience for kids and adults alike.

Happy shopping Mommy, Daddy, and Kids!
