Discovering Boots Pharmacy

I sorta saw Boots Pharmacy for the first time at Siam Paragon, and we were instantly amazed at how cheap the makeup and medicines were. I chose to purchase only one piece of a 17 Colour Shine Lip Gloss in Strawberry Burst which cost 217 Baht ($6.00). We told ourselves we'd come back for more makeup and a bottle of Cellufresh eye drops a little later or on the last day because we wanted to concentrate our moolah on clothes first.

But of course, not all vacations go according to plan so on the last shopping day at BKK we were too pooped to even think of going back to Siam --- and let me tell you that Siam was 5km away from our hotel! Gaaah. Pratunam, you have occupied 70% of my BKK time!

So whilst at the airport on the last day (and dreading the return flight to Manila), my sister and I were telling each other, "Okay the next time we go to Bangkok, we go straight to Boots. Kapish?"

And then lo and behold, I spot a Boots Pharmacy at the Suvarnabhumi Airport! Hooray! There is a God after all! And because I love, love, love the 17 Lip Gloss, I decided to get one more while my sister got the Collagenese Eye Rescue Cream.

My sister happily paid for my lippie! God knows I only had 120 Baht left in my wallet and I wanted to buy that wooden croaking frog!!!

It sucks that my sister threw away the metallic fuschia box of Collagenese, because it was so pretty! From what I remember (as everything was printed on the box), this eye cream contains only natural skin-loving ingredients. I apologize I could not expound on it more, I even cannot find it on the Boots website.

The 17 Lip Gloss however is my favorite. It may not show up on the image above, but the gloss actually contains baby-fine iridescent purple/blue glitter. And I've been using almost everyday, which explains why the image above looks half-empty. Anyway, as with all sheer glosses (I am the Queen of Sheer!), color doesn't last long but the strawberry flavor is good enough to eat :)
