Finally, I’m back with another blogpost.
Was invited to Watsons day out few weeks ago to understand the up and coming products in the market. It all seems like a refresher course because before Ry was born I had attended several Watson’s day out event. Just like the last few times it was all fun and laughter but this time, with my little pumpkin in tow.

Here’s Bobby and Juliana having fun with Ry.
While Watsons staff are doing their thing, Bobby is using eye power to terrorize Ry.
No need to try so hard coz 我的女儿是天不怕地不怕的！
With enhance digital panels, consumers now can interact better with different brands better. This makes smart consuming.
Initially wanted to delete this photo because my dblchin is very prominent but Agnes and Juliana convince me to keep it so I photoshopped the extra fats away instead lol. (Originals may be presented upon request.)
Lets see whats happening at Watsons nowadays!
Who doesn’t want beauty to look natural? Watsons has launched its house brand botanical line ‘ Natural by Watsons’ featuring certified oraganic ingredients that are source over the world. Formulated with quality plant extract and natural ingredients, it helps to distill essential goodness to promote cell regeneration as well as to restore the skin’s radiant glow.
The Beeswax Range is suitable for Normal Skin type, producing using the finest Beeswax sourced from the UK, beeswax is also known for anti-inflammatory action, is know to help calm and soothe skin. Enriched with Vitamin A and fatty acids keeping skin moisturized and Sweet almond oil provides emollients to improve skin softness.
Marula Oil Range
The African Marula Oil, an ingredient that is Rich in Oleic Acid (essential fatty acids) and anti-oxidants is essential to protect skin from harmful free radicals.
This range is very suitable for ‘dry skin’ types (yes me) helps to treat both damaged skin and hair, giving them life and luster.
Argan Oil Range
Certified Argan oil from Morocco, this oil is known from its richness in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. That probably means is going to be a right fit for dry skin types like me too! With all its wholesome properties, it helps to restore moisturizer levels in the hair at the same time creating a barrier function for the skin. Containing Avocado and wheat germ oil, this range helps to enhance rejuvenation for a suppler and younger-looking complexion.
The Range for extremely thirsty skin and hair contains certified organic olive oil from italy, base on ingredients like Natural grape seed oil, Shea Butter and oilve seed you probably know it is very rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. Though is cater for very dry skin and hair, it is also suitable for the most sensitive skin and scalps for that matter.
Naturals by watsons is selling at an affordable range of S$4.90-S$12.90. I must go get some for myself!
If you are looking at low price point and quality skincare and bodycare, Bypasse is the range for you.
From shampoo to Shower cream to remover wipes, Bypass has made it affordable catering to different skintypes.
Among them the more popular product is their Shower Cream Range. Comes in an easy-to-use pump bottles for ease of usage for the entire family. The most important is their formula which is pH-neural at 5.5 which is ideal for healthy skin. You can choose to purchase in 1L & 2L options, for first timers you may choose to go ahead with 1L first to test out the texture and quality.
I’ve finished using its Milk Protein range and I really have to say I super like the texture and afterfeel, there is no dry feeling after showering, also the light lathering caresses my skin softly leaving my skin moisturize. But I also have to highlight that, it runs out really fast, probably because the consistency is runnier than other shower creams thus I tend to pump a couple of times before I could managed to lather from top to toe.
I believed you have read about my full review on Revlon Colorstay Makeup range, thus I shall not go into it anymore. Instead let take a look at the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color swatches, so so pigmented and rich yet dries matte with long staying power. The colours here are so pretty, I like almost all of them! Nope, I didn’t get a chance to review any but by the looks of it Is already love at first sight!
Who doesn’t knows L’OREAL? I know they are good but this time round I’m totally sold with 1 product I had to buy 3 of the same from Watsons!
But before I go into my favourite product from L’Oreal, let me introduce you the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler [HA] Micro Volumizing Essence (pic above).
The revolutionary airless dropper is the latest technology to feed you skin with Hyaluronic Acid, which we all will lose overtime as we aged. Do not fret, even though the aesthetic nature of this product is constructed like a ‘needle’, this non-invasive dropper is actually design in such a way that it helps pump out products easily onto the face to plump up cheeks, smoothen forehead and visible laugh lines. L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler [HA] Micro Volumizing Essence contains 50x more Hyaluronic Acid concentration as compared to L’Oreal Paris Hydration Lotion. With this product, I can achieve egg shape (yes please!) face soon! Dblchin begone!
L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence
The moment I tried this product out at Watsons Beauty Day out, I’m already in love with it. I’m really big on sunscreen so when I learn that L’Oreal has came up with this mist texture, I headed out to Watsons the next day and get myself 3 of those. This mist is so awesome u can use it anywhere anytime, even over makeup. It literally means you can layer it over and over again and it still feels weightless!
The only downside I could think if is the price point, for a tiny bottle of mist is going at $23 and usually spray can finishes faster than sunscreen that uses finger application. For better cost saving, you may use this as an emergency product; start off your day by using finger application sunscreen, apply generously onto face. Bring along the L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence when you head out (it fits well in a roomy handbag) or leave it at your office desk, so as and when you need some UV shield whip this out and give your face some loving mist!
I’m sorry to inform you but my journey with Watson’s Day Out ends here because by the time we are done with L’Oreal, my pumpkin is already way over her bedtime and so I had to leave. A shoutout to Other participating booths which I did not cover: DHC(Mineral Mask, Facial Scrub, Hair Care Series, Virgin Coconut Oil Supplement, Extra Virgin Olive Oil Supplement), BioNike (Defence Rebalancing Cleansing Gel), Kinohimitsu (Superfood+), AFC (CHO RENEW), Labo Labo (Super-Keana Washing)
Thank you so much for your goodies and also Watsons for the invitation!
