FairPrice Xtra Has 1-For-1 Deals On Shampoo, Toothpaste & Facial Cream Till 18 Mar
Everyone has their own thoughts about how to protect themselves from Covid-19 — your family chats probably have a million different techniques or remedies to rid oneself of pesky viruses. But really, the best way is through staying clean and making sure you adopt hygienic practices.
Of course, keeping your skin looking fresh remains important in this climate. We can’t neglect taking care of our looks, after all.
So, FairPrice Xtra’s Health & Beauty Fair (Haba Fair) has all the items you’ll need to keep clean, and then some, from now till 25 Mar.
Getting these necessities at the fair comes with perks like 1-for-1 deals until 18 Mar, free gifts and even gift vouchers!
Check out some of what you can expect to find below.
Stay germ-free with anti-bacterial soap & refreshing toothpaste
Amid the Covid-19 outbreak, health consciousness is now the in-thing. You might argue that washing one’s hands should always be a trend in general, but that’s beside the point.
The important part is that people are becoming more health-conscious, and the HABA Fair is a good place to start if you’d like to stock up on goods like hand sanitiser and soap.
Lifebuoy’s anti-bacterial handwash will ensure that you stay well-protected from not just Covid-19 but also pesky ailments like seasonal flus.
Hygiene also consists of brushing your teeth twice daily — this is non-negotiable if you don’t want hefty dental fees or bad breath.
Until 18 Mar, you can get a sweet 1-for-1 deal on Colgate Naturals Real White or Darlie Double Action toothpaste, so that’s your dental hygiene sorted.
Get the right product for your hair & body
Softer hair with no dandruff is the goal of any human being, and unless you’re blessed with good genes, hair care is a must.
Depending on your hair type, Sunsilk’s range of shampoo and conditioner options is effective yet tailored to your needs.
And of course you can’t forget some body soap while taking a shower. Velvy’s Goat Milk Shower Cream is perfect for those who prefer smooth skin like a baby’s.
The best part is that FairPrice Xtra is offering 1-for-1 on both of these products until Wednesday (18 Mar), so it does pay to be an early bird.
