Watsons is a paradise for the makeup and skincare junkie. They carry dirt cheap to high end products that address specific needs - and actually do a good job of it! I heard from a person who markets a brand exclusive to Watsons that its difficult to get the personal care store to carry your product. Their staff tests it rigorously, and it may take months before it gets approved, if at all!
This is not to say that every single thing in Watsons is gold. It's just that I've observed that this year, the store has brought out a lot of new, unique products for every budget - quite uncommon for competitors and even some department store beauty aisles.
I've reviewed a lot of Watsons products in the past so I thought to compile my best finds from the personal care store. It's this thread in GirlTalk that inspired me to write this post! Take note, most of the products featured here are exclusive to Watsons.
This is my Holy Grail shampoo/conditioner. I am already on my second bottle of this! I love how it makes my hair feel soft and moisturized while minimizing hair fall.
Eyliplex-2 claims to lessen your eyebags and wrinkles. Does it work? YEAH! Check out my before and after photos in my review. You have to regularly use it though, like everyday. My bags are bothering me again so I'm using it again. Recently discovered trivia: the day gel is amazing as an eyeshadow primer! It really makes the eyeshadows pop and blend better! However it's too expensive to use as just a primer. ;)
I don't really have major wrinkles so I gave this wrinkle-filler to my mom. She swears by it! I agree, she has less lines now. I'll probably use this when I'm in my 30s or 40s, but not now.
This is such a cheap, yummy-smelling facial mask that's really creamy. Your skin will feel great afterwards! I broke out a little after using this though, but nothing major. Not bad for P70!
Of course, how can I not mention my current love? I'm already sounding like a broken record, but let me say (again) that this is a great exfoliator that whitened my dark areas. I especially love the scent and moisturizing properties.
Lorys Hair Cream is a great weekly or bi-weekly hair treatment that deeply moisturizes my hair. However, it depends if you're hiyang. Nice product overall, and you get such a great deal for only P350 per kilo of the stuff
If you're a makeup newbie looking for cheap n' good tools, Marionnaud brushes would be perfect for you. All brushes are less than P200. These are not oh-my-god-it's-so-awesome quality, but for the price and the performance, they're best for those just trying their hand in makeup or only want tools for basic daily makeup.
Aaand that's it! I have other great drugstore finds, but I thought to focus only on ones you can mainly find in Watsons. A brand I want to try next is Opal - everyone's talking about it on GirlTalk! Will check that out next time when I drop by.
What do you think? Tried any of these? Would love to know what your Watsons best finds are!
