…. Tawas
…. Panty liner/sanitary napkin
…. Earbuds
…. Nivea lotion
…. Face powder
…. Facial wash anything low-priced or with free item in it….

These are just my usual, frequent picks at the health and beauty section in the grocery, unless there are some other important and needed stuff.

I normally buy beauty things during sale, being frugal is in, lol. But sometimes, some things can’t wait for the sale; my latest grocery buy was this henna hair dye. My silver hairs are starting to show-up. I can’t use these mainstream brands because my scalp, my forehead, my nape will look-like a sautéed shrimp after, other than paying the salon I should need to buy anti-allergies so that would cost me more.

This packet is just P25.00. Its a ‘just add water’ and a DIY thing…. The colors stays for a least a month, that’s good enough. And I trust Indian products more than China. It's true.

So there, thanks lovelies for dropping by, join us every Thursday at K for Girls Talk.


  1. nyahaha!!! that hair color stuff reminds me of my Lolo.. hihi!! yan ang ginagamit nya before nong nag stay sya sa bahay namen eh!! hihi

    Happy GT ^_^

  2. Ay.. naalala ko rin ang nanay at tatay ko.. with the mention of hair color. Mahilig ring magpa-itim ng buhok yun coz of their grey hair. Hihihi..

    Noong una, gumagamit rin ko ng tawas, pero ngayon Secret na lang. Mas madali lang kasing i-apply (for me..).. =)

    Ms Vernz, hope you could drop by sa blog ko and read my entry. =) Happy GT thursday!

  3. Itry ko nga yan hair coloring na yan, may black kaya for my father or kahit black-brown...

  4. nakalimutan ko nga pla ilagay ung sanitary napkin sa entry ko.. nyahaha! ako din tawas gamit ko dati pero now from AVON na hihi...

    I also have my entry.. happy GT day! ^_^

  5. aah yes. Indians have one the best hair care products. I am also using AMLA oil to keep my locks from split ends


  6. yes, cologne lang kami sis kasi banayad lang ang amoy. forgot the sanitary napkin and pantyliner, too.

    thanks for dropping by! happy thursday :)

  7. hahaha, natawa naman ako sa sauteed shrimp. mahirap talaga kaapg may allergies, hindi basta makapag try ng ibang brands. you're right, indian products are better than those that made in china.


  8. Agree with you, sis.. I prefer Indian products than Chine.
    Anyway, can you blend the color properly if you dye your own hair then?

    Thanks for visiting me...
    Happy Thursday :)

  9. ngek, nakalimutan ko ung sanitary napkin! haha!

    thanks for visiting my blog, sis!

  10. oh.. really indian products? great finds.. :)

  11. My mom uses that hair coloring, too. Kaka-experiment namin, at times she would put coffee and egg whites in the mixture before I apply it. Mas tumatagal naman. Kaso, since we use the Pond's black facial wash, yung color ng hair niya near the forehead mabilis mag fade out.

  12. Henna dyes are better nga daw, kasi they don't have the harsh chemicals. I've never tried this on my hair, though I've used it for temporary tattoos. :)

    Thank you for visiting and leaving your comment! :*
