CORRECTION 01/27/2010: Baby Salve sells for Php 200 only! I must've included what I paid for shipping...sorry!
Even though I may be an OC mom, I don't just go around looking for stuff for my daughter and buy them whether they're affordable or not. I always look for alternatives and most of the time, I find the local products cheaper than their stateside counterparts. So here's my finds and hopefully, you can take your shot on them too!
