I went to the Guardian outlet at Waterway Point this week because I wanted to stock up on mosquito patches. I ended up buying BRAND’S products because there was a too-good-to-miss promotion happening. But the reason for the mosquito patches? Two days ago, I killed two mosquitoes (the kind which explode in a bloody mess on your palms) within 5 minutes of getting out of bed. I figured the mozzie problem is getting serious, no thanks to construction sites nearby. Also, there’s been a sharp increase in the number of dengue cases this year, so it’s time to fight back. I’ve been using a lemongrass room spray scent from Mt Sapola (now called Hysses) every night since, right before bedtime. I spray it at entry/exit points of our home such as the bedroom windows, toilet windows, etc. And I haven’t spotted a mosquito since.
Now, as for the BRAND’S promotion, I saw that apart from the discounted prices for BRAND’S products, there’s also a further $8 off if you purchase more than 1 item. So I picked out two BRAND’S items.
Essence of Chicken 12 x 68ml bottles (which come with 2 x 60ml bottles of Lutein essence) $31.80 (*It’s $37.90 on BRAND’S Online Store and doesn’t even come with free Lutein Essence)
Berry Essence 12 x 42ml bottles $22.80 (It’s $26.90 on BRAND’S Online Store)
And because I picked 2 BRAND’S items, there’s a further $16 (2 x $8) off!
Impossible not to buy them, right? So I did. 😀 I really don’t know if the promotion is still ongoing. But you’re welcome to pop by your nearest Guardian store to find out.
The Guardian BuzzAway anti-bugs patches cost $5.15 for a pack of 24 pcs while the Eagle Brand Citronella Oil (30ml) costs just $2.60.
Do consider getting some mosquito patches or sprays to protect yourself and your loved ones. I’ve not gotten dengue fever before but I know of friends who have and it’s not something I’m keen on experiencing for myself. Hence, no plants at home! 😀
