Daiso is a $2 megastore that first opened its doors in Japan in 1977. They have evolved into an international brand that we are all familiar with over the last few decades. When the brand initially arrived in Singapore, many of us raced to Daiso for massive shopping sprees.
Today, they have over 20 stores across the island of Singapore. Daiso Singapore offers a huge variety of products ranging from 15 categories, including household, kitchen, art and craft, gardening and many more.
With so many products for you to choose from, we have narrowed down for you the 38 Best Buys At Daiso Singapore! So start gathering your $2 notes and let’s get to shopping!
Before we delve into the list, why not check out the awesome team building activities that The Fun Empire has for us!
1. Organizing Boxes and Cases
Daiso Singapore is the place to go when it comes to organizing boxes and cases. Their organizing boxes are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours. The quality is a value-for-money! Furthermore, you would most often find that similar or even identical product, is sold at much higher prices elsewhere.
Whether you need a box for your child’s toys, your clothes, your make-up products, your cables, or any other knick knack, you will most likely be able to find the box you need at Daiso Singapore.
These items are really popular, though! They may be snagged up really quickly once they are replenished. So be quick!
2. Make up Brush Cleaner
Do you realise how vital it is to clean your cosmetic tools, such as brushes, on a regular basis? Not only will this prevent you from breaking out as a result of the dust and bacteria that accumulate in them over time, but it will also help increase the lifespan of your brushes!
We found that the make up brush cleaner from Daiso Singapore worked just as well as the more expensive alternatives in the market so they naturally made it to this list! If you have never used a brush cleaner before, simply follow these steps:
- Fill a small bowl with water and pour the Daiso Make up Brush Cleaner liquid in it.
- Put in your make up brush and swirl it around, until you see that the liquid changes colour.
- Rinse your brush and lay it to dry.
There you have it, clean brushes that are good as new! This product is definitely not to be missed.
3. Cotton Puff
Another popular product by Daiso Singapore is their cotton puff. These cotton puffs come in convenient boxes for you to store them hygienically.
Also, do not confuse this with other cotton puff available in Daiso Singapore. This one comes in a pink and white box and contains 90 pads each – which means 180 pads for only $2!
Many raved about these cotton pads for not only being cheaper compared to other brands, but also for its quality. They will not leave any cotton residue on your face when applied to it, and can effectively remove make up as well.
4. Gel Eyebrow Pencil
Hands down, one of the cheapest eyebrow pencils available in Daiso Singapore!
If you don’t have much experience with makeup, it’s easy to go too far and end up with too dark or thick brows. While the gurus may prefer something with greater color payoff, novices should choose a more light handed option, such as Daiso’s eyebrow pencils!
They’re not only inexpensive, but their super fine tip allows you to draw light, natural-looking hair-like strokes to frame your face.
5. Double Eyelid Tapes
For only $2, you get a pack of 25 pairs of double eyelid tapes which are super sticky and lasts all day – even throughout your shower. Another one that gets the most bang out of your money considering that your local cosmetic stores retail them for at least $3.
6. Urea Hand Cream
Interesting fact! Do you know that urea is a substance that is eliminated from the body through the urine after a metabolic process? As for the scent, it’s pretty mild and overall has a viscous texture that dries up rapidly after application.
Do check out the before & after results of using the urea hand cream for a week! This is perfect for guys who don’t want to smell like flowers or spend anything more than a meal on for a hand cream.
7. Silicone Face Mask
For many of us, masking time is both a necessary and relaxing part of our skincare routine. However, not all facial masks are made the same, and some of them tend to slip off our faces, making our masking experience stressful rather than soothing!
The Daiso silicone face mask is here to prevent that! It’s just a silicone mask with ear loops to keep it on your face. This is used over a conventional mask that would normally be worn alone.
This mask has a number of advantages. First and foremost, it keeps the mask from slipping or sliding around, allowing you to move around more freely while masking. It also keeps the mask moist and prevents it from drying out too quickly. Best of all, it’s reusable! So the $2 you’re going to spend is going to go a long way.
8. Compressed Face Mask
Masking on a daily basis will keep your face glowing, and if you want to have some fun DIY-ing your masks, purchase these small capsules of compressed face masks from Daiso Singapore. Simply soak these in your favourite serum before applying them to your skin for some self care.
These are also cheaper than standard face masks, which may cost up to $2 each piece.
9. Matte Nail Polish Topcoat
Looking for something nice to paint your nails? Grab this matte nail polish topcoat to transform any glossy nail paint into a matte one. Aside from saving you money by not having to buy a bottle of matte polish, this is also one-fifth the price of comparable branded goods, making it a huge cost-saver for people with continuously coloured nails out there.
10. Art & Craft Supplies
If you’re seeking for art and craft products, you might want to pay a visit to Daiso Singapore. They have a wide range of products including clay, paint, brushes, markers, crayons, scrapbooking materials, and even wool and yarn for knitting.
At just $2, they are definitely cheaper than those sold at bookstores or craft stores. Indeed, the quality might not be suitable for you if you are a professional artist. However, this is more than enough if you are just picking up simple craft, or buying these supplies for your child.
11. Hand Warmers
These effective mini heat packs or hand warmers are great for when you are travelling to a cold country – or even when you’re stuck in a cold office. Conveniently packed, the package comes with 6 individual hand warmers. It even comes with a cute design with a wooly alpaca on it! If you are someone who rarely travels but needs a hand warmer, this is a cheap option to get from Daiso Singapore.
12. Travel-sized Bottles
With many of us going on staycations these days, travel-sized bottles and containers are extremely useful. Instead of bringing a big bottle of soap, shampoo or conditioner to your next staycation, pack them into these handy little bottles from Daiso Singapore!
The bottles are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. They have squeeze tubes and screw top bottles as well. If you don’t want to use plastic containers, Daiso Singapore also sells soft silicone tubes that won’t pop open or burst when flying.
13. Collapsible Cup
When you’re packing newly acquired goods into your luggage, every last inch counts. This collapsible cup folds easily into a compact disc, and you can even hang it on the exterior of your bag. A must-have for hiking trips to ensure a clean and proper receptacle from which you can consume water and instant foods.
14. Vacuum Seal Bags
Vacuum seal bags make items tidy and compartmentalised when traveling. These airtight bags allow you to remove all of the air from inside them, reducing the amount of space taken up by your clothing. This allows you to fit more items into the same luggage space!
Those in the red and white packaging are the best of the bunch, and they come with a universal suction valve that fits any vacuum cleaner.
Even if you don’t plan on going on a vacation anytime soon, drop one or two into your shopping cart. They’re fantastic for storing bulky items like blankets and pillows, or storing winter clothes you haven’t worn in years to make room for more buying!
15. Foldable Compact Raincoat
When strong winds and a heavy rainstorm arrive, those thin, disposable ponchos won’t do you much good. As for these Daiso foldable raincoats, they are not only more durable and long-lasting, but they can also be packed into a little bag when not in use.
16. Pill Containers
Especially for individuals who use a variety of medications and supplements on a regular basis, keeping your pills organised is critical to avoid skipping a dose. With a variety of sizes and compartments to select from, these pill containers may also be used to store small items such as bobby pins, ear studs, or your local SIM card.
17. Travel Pillow
The discomfort of not being able to relax your tight and tired neck when flying is excruciating. Those who have passed by airport convenience stores know that a last-minute travel cushion purchase can cost up to $20. The ones at Daiso Singapore are a fraction of the price, and some models even include an extra padded head rest for soft, cushioned support.
18. Laundry Line
Retractable laundry lines are becoming increasingly rare these days, unless you stay in a hotel or hostel with laundry facilities — and even then, most of the time a couple of dollars are still necessary to start the washer and dryer.
If you like to wash your dirty clothes in the hotel sink, this is one item you might want to stock up on before your next vacation.
Although simple, it has several useful features, such as hooks at each end of the rope allowing easy connection to any pole or door, similar to a hammock. The rope’s ladder-like arrangement also prevents hangers from sliding down to the centre, which is a first-world problem that many of us still face.
Even if you aren’t travelling, you can easily put up this at home to create extra hanging space on days when you have a lot of washing.
19. Shoulder Supporter
With this shoulder supporter, you won’t have to slouch or hunch at work anymore! We tried it out and enjoy how light it is and how little effort it takes to use, whether you’re sitting or walking around. Despite that, it still does the job of making you more aware of your posture.
20. Lint Remover
Similar to the Egg Timer, this Daiso product is an innovative one as well. Unlike a lint roller, this product requires less effort because it is totally automatic.
Simply place the batteries in the lint remover’s mouth and hover it over anything in your household that has accumulated lint balls. The associated lint balls will be removed and stored within the product.
Keep in mind that once the Lint Remover is full, you’ll need to empty it!
21. Glass Lunch Box
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to save the environment while also spending less money, buying Daiso’s heat-resistant glass containers are an excellent choice. These are great for takeout because they reduce your plastic footprint and come in a variety of sizes, including 330ML and 530ML.
22. Chair Socks
Looking for something to prevent your floor from getting scratches as you drag your chair? Get this cute designed chair socks now!
They are quite handy because they protect both your floor and your ears from the dreadful screeching sound that plagues our eardrums every time a chair is dragged across the floor.
23. Reading Glasses
Did you know that you can get prescription reading glasses at Daiso Singapore for only $2? They even come in a variety of designs and colours for you to choose from! Unlike many reading glasses that are often dull-looking and boring, the ones at Daiso Singapore look trendy! So the next time your grandparents or parents look like they’re struggling while reading the newspaper, you know where to go.
24. Festive Decor
There are many places to acquire your decorations for the many festive seasons, but Daiso Singapore may be the most unexpected. They provide a wide range of beautiful items, from artificial peonies to fortune cat figurines, to help you pump up the festive atmosphere in your home.
You can also find seasonal Christmas, Chinese New Year or Halloween-themed products here during those seasons as well.
25. Washing Machine Cleaner
The washing machine keeps our clothing clean and smelling fresh, but do you know that the metal drums within trap all kinds of nasty stuff as well?
With each load of laundry, more dirt and residue accumulate in the machine, resulting in the formation of mould and mildew over time. If the machine emits a foul odour, this is also most likely the reason.
To get those drums sparkling clean and pungent-free, fill your stainless steel washing machine with water and a full packet of Daiso Singapore’s washing machine cleaner. Allow it to run for a few minutes to dissolve the powder, then let it alone for 2-4 hours to perform its magic. Finish the process off by running a full cycle to flush everything out.
26. Mold Remover
Mold is disgusting, especially when it forms in the kitchen or bathroom, where cleanliness is paramount. Get rid of them with this 300ML mold remover spray, which comes with a handy spray nozzle that keeps anything unpleasant from coming into touch with your skin. They’re less expensive and equally as effective as the more well-known brands.
400ML bottles of refill are also available once you’re finished with the first.
27. Melamine Sponge
This next item is something all the closet aunties in my office swear by. Also known as magic erasers, melamine sponges swab away dirt stains with just water. Unlike traditional sponges which only visually removes stains, the melamine sponge also removes any dirt or germs beneath them!
The only downside we know of is that the size of the sponge shrinks with each use, but this is presumably also why the product is sold in bulk. You can also customise the sponge size to clean different areas of your house!
28. Laundry Net
Lingeries aren’t cheap, so if you want to extend their “utility” lease, acquire these caged laundry nets to keep them from getting bent out of shape in the wash. Not only will you be safeguarding your lingeries, but these nets will also keep those tiny bra hooks from latching on to other delicate garments like knits or lace when in the washing machine.
29. Floor Cleaning Mops
Magic Clean is well-known for their floor wipes, which make cleaning the floor a breeze. However, if you’re seeking for a cheaper alternative, Daiso Singapore provides a considerably cheaper option at a fraction of the former’s price.
There are other types of mops available, but based on experience, the one labelled flooring wiper has the highest quality, with a smooth ball and socket-like joint between the base and the pole for simple cleaning.
The pole, base, and mop are offered separately for a total of $4. Daiso also sells the wipes, which come in several types such as scented wet wipes and dry wipes.
30. Long Rubber Bands
Looking for some simple long rubber bands to tie your hair? Daiso Singapore is the place to go!
Cut out the exact length of hair tie you need from these long Daiso rubber bands. They come in sets of 3 and a variety of thickness and colours – such as black, brown, pink and yellow. They’re also really elastic and last long without snapping.
31. Butter Stick Holder
While butter tastes great, fumbling with it in its cold, hardened form is a messy and awkward experience.
The butter stick holder is a lesser-known kitchen staple that makes cooking and baking a whole lot easier. Simply cut your slab of butter to size and place it in the device; then twist it out and apply it to your pan, tray, or loaf of bread – with no mess!
32. Egg Timer
All you egg experts out there will agree that there’s a significant difference between a soft boiled egg and a hard boiled egg. This egg timer eliminates all of the guessing when it comes to ensuring that our eggs are cooked to our perfect taste!
Simply place the device in a pot with your eggs and watch as the individual indicators change colour from pink to white to indicate when the eggs are done. You can extract the eggs whenever you want for eating, depending on how you prefer your eggs.
33. Baking Tools
Many of us think about spending our weekends baking but are hesitant to invest too much money on baking tools and equipment because we are scared we will not bake too often. This is where Daiso Singapore can help!
They have a large selection of baking tools. This includes silicone moulds, measuring gadgets, whisks, spatulas, and a plethora of other items! Furthermore, they are all incredibly appealing in terms of colour and design. The quality of their baking products are also comparable to those sold by other major brands.
So, if you’re new to baking or want to start a new pastime, stock up on these baking supplies from Daiso Singapore!

35. Sweet Potatoes
Fans of these fibrous, honey-licious potatoes will be delighted! These bite-sized snacks are created with real sweet potatoes and sugar to satisfy your mid-day sweet desire at work.
The verdict in the office was divided: the taste is a little dry, but the sweet potato flavour is still discernible, even if it may appear artificial to some.
36. Tohato Caramel Corn Chips
This sweet and salty snack is delectable! Daiso Singapore is the greatest location to buy tohato caramel corn chips if you haven’t tried it yet. Although not much less expensive than other supermarkets, purchasing from Daiso stores allows you to enjoy a lower price for the same amount of goodness.
