To be honest, I haven't been around malls lately because of my super busy schedule! On weekends, if I don't have make-up gigs, you would see me either visiting my parents' place or just stay at home --- rest and sleep like a log! That's why when I got into a Watsons store at SM Megamall a few weeks before I left for Shanghai (to buy toiletries), I was amazed on the variety of brands added inside the Watsons Family.
Jheng, Jane and myself were just talking during lunch how much we enjoyed going around Watsons, I think a lot of you would agree that the store is a huge "stress-buster"! It's very difficult not to walk inside without buying at least ONE item.
A simple 'lunch' event was held a couple of days ago and I was able to attend! It was an afternoon filled with beauty talk!
We were at the second floor of Museum Cafe (M Cafe). After a hearty meal, Watsons Brand Manager Mr. Jared M. De Guzman started the presentation with a talk about a product close to my heart --- BB Creams! He discussed about its origin, its functions and the advantages of using one.
At the back of my head, I knew Watsons carry Pure Beauty BB Creams, but I didn't know the range grew this big!
Purederm 3 in 1 Beauty Pearl BB Cream - great for people who like the extra "glow"
Purederm Magic BB Cream with Skin Conditioning Effects - works for normal/oily skin
L-R UV White Sun Protection Compact (Php339.00/approx $9.00)
Jasmine Water BB Cream (Php319.00/approx $7.60)
Soothin BB Cream (Php199.00/approx $4.74)
ALL PURE BEAUTY PRODUCTS ARE MADE IN KOREA
And would you believe I also learn there are BB Creams lower than Php200.00 (approx $4.50)? The Gluta & Placenta BB Cream by Glorious Skin costs only Php169.00 (approx $3.90). We chuckled a bit on its promise of "Instant White"! But hey! If that's what you're looking for, this is the only BB Cream I've came across with this function!
Dream Girl Faith BB Cream for less than Php200.00 (approx $.4.50) too I believe!
Then we were moved on to the next product line...
The Watsons H Bella Bath and Body Care Line
Products were distributed on each table and we were encouraged to give them a test! Our table, while eating was trying out these products and even joked about accidentally eating them because they smell fruity!
New products after products quite new to me were unveiled right in front of my eyes! I actually like the fact that I can test the products at once as they pass the products around for us to sniff and try! And there are some products that REALLY piqued my interest.....
Pure Beauty Makeup Remover Range!
L-R Pure Beauty Perfect Cleansing Oil - oh my!!! So excited for this!
Pure Beauty Perfect Cleansing Liquid
Pure Beauty Perfect Cleansing Water
And Dove Foaming Make Up Remover!
Php359.00 (approx $8.50)
I realized that I have a thing for "cleansing" :P
Ah, so many new products available at our local Watsons. I am actually not that overwhelmed when I visited Watsons Shanghai as I found a lot of products "finally" available here! And before the event ended, we were asked with the most "loved" question for the day.....
"What brands would you like to see at our local Watsons carry?"
Oh my, I shouted "Le'gere BB Cream" right away, I thought about most of the readers who emailed me about the brand! Sophie mentioned Mandom Cleansing Lotion and they are sold in Watsons Singapore! I have to second the motion as I have mine delivered from Hong Kong!
The day turns into an exciting open forum and I would like you my dear readers share their thoughts! Who knows? Your wishes may come true!
My extra wishlist, Lucido L Hair Products! I've seen them in Watsons Shanghai and I own one which was gifted to me by my friend in Malaysia! :)
Feel free to share what your thoughts!
Thanks Watsons Philippines, ARC and special mention to gorgeous Jenny for the invite :)
