Daiso Japan stores in Singapore is known for its affordable pricing on household goods, selling everything in store for only $2 per item. Turns out they are also selling the cheapest face masks around.
99% protection face masks
A reader sent in a photo to popular Facebook page Singapore Atrium Sale, showing that the Japanese discount megastore retailing a 30-piece box of face masks for, you guessed it, only $2.
That means it costs less than 7 cents per piece, making it one of the cheapest face masks you can get your hands on in Singapore.
According to the label on the box, it states that the face mask comes with a nose wire and offers 99% protection against pollen, bacteria and dust.
In case you are wondering, it also has 3-layer protection as per displayed on the lower right of the box.
Thank you, Daiso.
The photo was taken at Waterway Point outlet yesterday and it has since sold out on the masks at 1pm on 2 February. However, the masks are reportedly being stocked progressively at all Daiso outlets.
