Filipino American Expat in Singapore

I ran out of Nivea Sun Protection so I was told I could find cheap toiletries at a place called Swanston in Chinatown. I bought my last one at SM Mall of Asia back in December. The standard price for Nivea Sun Protection is about SGD 20.00 at FairPrice.

At Swanston it costs only SGD 13.90! Cue Final Fantasy fanfare music.

Getting to Swanston is easy. Look for Exit C which exits into a courtyard next to the People’s Park Complex Food Centre. Take the escalator up to the 2nd floor and turn right. Head down the corridor until you see a busy store with toiletries sprawled around.

I spotted other finds as well. My fave Listerine Green Tea “flavour” was selling at SGD 5.80. It’s about SGD 10.00+ at FairPrice and SGD 7.00 at Venus Beauty if I’m not mistaken. I also spotted shampoo at below SGD 6.00. If I were to hoard on toiletries, this would be the place to go. I could save plenty of dollars here.

Swanston’s is at People’s Park Complex Food Centre, 2nd floor. 32 New Market Road, Singapore 050032
