Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

A few new finds from Watsons

A few new finds from Watsons

My Watsons addiction started innocently enough. SM Carriedo is on my route home, so I'd stop in and have a look around. I loved that Watsons has everything from bathroom staples and cosmetics, to disposable underwear and medicine. As my interest in makeup and skincare grew, so did the time I spent going through all the aisles in the SM Beauty section and in Watsons.

It has pretty much become a daily ritual, so I can quickly spot if a brand repackages a product or releases a new one! I recently spotted a few that caught my eye, and you should totally check them out the next time you're at Watsons!

iWhite Korea 2 Minute Whitening Miracle Gel (P24)

The iWhite Korea 2 Minute Whitening Miracle Gel is an exfoliating gel similar to the famous Cure Natural Aqua Gel. It basically does the same thing as Cure, but this gommage exfoliator promises instant whitening! The directions are to apply it to a dry clean face, wait for two minutes, then exfoliate away. I find that one packet is good for 3-4 uses, so it's a really good find if you want to exfoliate on the cheap.

Quick FX CC Cream (P89 regular price, P70 on sale)

If you've always wanted to try a CC cream but don't want to shell out, this is  super affordable option. This is a new product from Quick FX, which is famous for their pimple eraser and mattifier. It claims to be able to color correct, conceal, hydrate, and protect your skin! The sachet also has a twisty cap so you don’t have to worry about it drying out. Mine has been open for about two weeks now, and it's as smooth and creamy as when I first opened it. Don't be alarmed if it looks too white when you first apply it--it adapts to your skintone when you blend it out, though somewhat on the fair side. I feel that it doesn't offer much coverage but it does color correct and hydrate your skin!

L’oreal Tint Caresse (P500 regular price, P350 on sale)

These powder lipsticks made a huge buzz in the beauty world when they were launched earlier this year. They're fuss-free, lightweight, and matte. It has a sponge tip applicator which you apply as normal for a solid color pout, or dab strategically to create a beautiful gradient lip, which I personally adore!

Maybelline Super BB Cream (P399)

This is an improvement over the first Maybelline BB cream, as it boasts of super coverage and a mineral guard filter to prevent dust from entering your pores. The metallic pink packaging makes for such eye candy, too! Check out Liz’s review and FOTD right here. 

Pretty Secret Black Detox Masks (P45)

Okay, so I honestly don’t know if this is new or not, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t see this a month ago. I was intrigued because there were three boxes of these masks on display, but each box only had 1-3 masks left. Must be a bestseller, right? So I got one and will be trying it soon!

Do any of these excite you? What new discoveries have you made at Watsons this month?
