Lazada is celebrating its 3rd birthday starting tomorrow, from 21st to 23rd March, and there will be discounts of up to 90%, with over 300 flash deals! But best of all, there’ll be surprise boxes comprising items from brands like Laneige, Neutrogena, Philips, 3M, Nivea, Maybelline, etc. Those boxes will contain items worth $100 from one particular brand but will be sold at a very low price, just like Japanese fukubukuro grab bags. I’ve gotten a preview of the 3M x Lazada box, which will be launched on 21st March, at 8am. As I’ve been purchasing 3M products on the Lazada Singapore website, and am a 3M fan, Lazada reached out to me with a referral link plus discount code, and invited me to blog about the items I like…
There are a total of 17 items in the 3M x Lazada box, with 14 different products. I can easily pick out my favorites since I’ve been using 3M products to clean my home.
I’ve been recommending folks to get these 2 products:
(1) 3M Scotch-Brite Aloe Vera Coated Gloves
These gloves come in 3 sizes (S,M,L). And I’ve discovered that the M and L sizes fit my hands nicely – I can buy one size when the other is out of stock (and they usually are!) What this means is the gloves are *not* designed for men to use. 😉 I do wonder why. Although it’s not something which can be felt, per se, I’m still glad to note that the gloves have an internal coating of aloe vera gel as some of the household cleaning detergents we use can be rather harsh on our skin.
I have been using these gloves mainly when washing clothes and when I’m cleaning the floor, and discovered that they are pretty durable. There was once, though, when I’d needed a new pair of 3M aloe vera gloves to use when cleaning the kitchen sink but they were sold out online so I bought a pair from another brand. There’s not a huge difference in price ($2.95 vs. $2), but there’s a noticeable difference in quality. I’d happily pay the extra 95 cents for the 3M ones.
(2) 3M Scotch-Brite Clean Rinse No Scratch Scrubber
I’d first bought these a long time back because of that irresistible tagline: “Even Rice, Eggs & Cheese Won’t Stick”. If you have pots and pans at home that come with non-stick coatings, you’ll want to get one of these amazing scrubbers. I use it for my rice cooker, of course, and to get the oil and grime off pans.
It’s dual-sided so use the firmer surface for the heavy duty cleaning work, and the softer surface for items like cups or kettles.
A pack of 2 costs $6.60 (promo price) on Lazada. I believe every kitchen will need one of these. And you don’t need to change them often either, unlike the regular kitchen sponges which tend to trap a lot of food and grime.
And this next product is my new favorite:
(3) 3M Scotch-Brite High Performance Bathroom Cloth
It’s extremely wasteful, I have to admit, but I’m used to cleaning mirrors at home with wet tissues as I’m afraid of getting scratches on the mirrors when using regular cleaning cloths. However, this 3M bathroom cloth is “lint and scratch free” and can be used to clean all types of bathroom surfaces, such as your mirrors and taps!
A 3-pc bundle costs $15 (promo price) on Lazada SG.
All 3 items listed above can be found in the 3M x Lazada box that’s retailing at $29. The entire box of 3M goodies is worth $100, so getting it at $29 is truly a steal. 🙂
THIS BOX OF GOODIES CAN BE YOURS:
Grab one of these boxes of 3M cleaning supplies and you’re all set for the rest of the year!
New customers can get 18% off with my voucher code: WOWGRACE18 (valid from 21st to 23rd March, capped at $8). This means the already-heavily-discounted surprise box can be yours at just $23.78 after the discount!
*Update: If you’re using a Citibank Credit Card, use code CITILAZ20 instead for 20% discount. My personal code WOWGRACE18 gives you 18% discount. I’d like you to save more money even if it means I get less/no referral earnings 🙂
