Watsons Birthday Haul With 5x Bonus Points!


Yay hayyyyyyyy! It’s finally my birthday!

There is always a good reason or two to splurge on makeup and skincare products and the reason for this month is very obvious!

Watsons rewards its members with 1 point for every S$5 purchase. And for every 20 points, you get S$1 off your purchase, meaning I have to spend S$100 to redeem W$1.

So to fully redeem my Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara which cost…. I can’t remember… maybe around S$17?, I had to use 340 points. Not bad at all considering I’d have bought so many things from Watsons even without the membership rewards.

Wait a minute.

The 340 points were earned from spending…… S$1700.00!!!!!!

ZOMG! Watsons earns a lot from me! >.<”

W$1 = 20 points = S$100

W$17 = 340 points = S$1700

SHUCKS! How did I manage to buy so many things from Watsons?! And the Rimmel mascara isn’t the only item I’ve redeemed before.

*feels guilty and runs to a corner to repent*

Okie, I feel better now.

Anyway, it’s my birthday month! So I get 5 times bonus points on the first purchase of the month! YAY! I made a list of the items I wanted to get from Watsons for the month of July, and made sure I didn’t miss anything out so that I wouldn’t waste the bonus points.

Top row:

Eclipse Mints

Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper

Bottom row:

Biore Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover (My second bottle)

Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip (My fourth or fifth bottle)

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ with Helioplex

Kanebo Kate Eyeliner Frame Impact Marker

Kanebo Kate Gel Eyeliner – BK-1 (Matte black)

Kanebo Kate Gel Eyeliner – BU-1 (Matte navy blue)

Hada Labo Nano +  Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion

Optrex Eye Lotion

I also got from SASA a travel-sized bottle of, in my opinion, one of the BEST eye makeup removers in the market – Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip. I think that small bottle can last me for about 2 weeks, great for travel.

What kind of excuses do you come up with for a splurge?

LOL. I’m not even asking “Do you come up with excuses…”, I’m assuming you do! XD

Happy birthday to all you wonderful July babies!

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.

    Hey, admittedly it SHOULD cost S$1700 for 340 points, but you forgot to count the times when you got extra 10 bonus points for spending S$50, and the random times you got bonus points for special offers 😀 (case in point: I have 176 points = W$8 but I spent about S$340). I used my birthday month 5X points offer today, but all I got was the Revlon Colorstay Makeup, Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner and Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner. I am srsly broke from all that online shopping – didn’t even get the Neutrogena sunblock that I’m running out of. Maybe I’ll try that Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip another time.

      Oh ya! Forgot about all those bonus points! Thanks for reminding! So your birthday is in August? Happy birthday then, Recherche! Birthdays are special. =D

      Oooh yes yes, do try the Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip! It’s a godsend. Okie, maybe just SUPER DUPER AWESOME!
