I know what you’re thinking. Isn’t Batiste Dry Shampoo already available in Malaysia? Yes. It is already in the Malaysia market since two years ago I believe but there was no launch done and no marketing done. Zero product exposure except for a few of us who has been using Batiste and been talking about it on the blog and even on social media channels. Even the stocks are insufficient and I find myself constantly hunting for it. It is getting so tiring trying to find Batiste and I am SO GLAD that a huge company such as DKSH took over Malaysia distributorship. That means consumers will not need to run around the town, supermarket to supermarket like a headless chicken hunting for it.
When everyone was buying and ordering Bioderma from oversea, I decided to sit around and wait for the brand to be brought in to Malaysia. I always believe somebody or some company would be following the hype. So when Batiste Dry Shampoo was a “hot” product, I did the same. I sit and wait. Guess what? A few months down the road and a company brought the brand in!
I’m so glad I waited because the cheapest I’ve seen from online store is around RM35 per can and I bought it straight from Aeon Big Alamanda Putrajaya for just RM24.90. Good things come to those who wait eh? There are a few supermarket that carry Batiste Dry Shampoo. You can get it from Village Grocer, Jaya Grocer, Presto Grocer (the few I know) and if all the location is out of your reach like my case, just go to Aeon Big. I went to a standalone Aeon Big but they don’t carry Batiste so I figure I might get it easier from an Aeon Big located in a mall. So I drove to Aeon Big Alamanda Putrajaya and found it.
