Last Saturday, I had the amazing opportunity of attending a unique shopping spree at Watsons SM Cebu branch and meeting one of their celebrity endorsers, Iya Villania. From personal care items, beauty essentials to medicine, Asia’s leading personal care store now offers a wider variety of products under its own label, giving shoppers the chance to save as much as 80 percent without compromising on quality.
I have always been a Watsons customer and frequently stock up on their antibacterial gel hand soaps, make-up wipes, tissues and make-up remover pads. So this was a great time to peruse the store aisles and check out the latest Watsons beauty products.
With such irresistible deals, other celebrities followed Iya's footsteps and made the switch including Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Patty Laurel, and the newest addition to the group, Christian Bautista.
Iya, the Watsons Store Supervisor of the Day, was there to take us around the store, present the newest offerings under the Watsons label and share with us some of her favorite products.
Not only does Watsons provide quality items but they also offer great deals! A number of their best-sellers are buy 1 take 1, so you get two products for the price of one!
They've got a wide array of personal care essentials such as moisturizing lotions, exfoliating scrubs, hair shampoos, hair treatment waxes, antibacterial wet wipes, face masks, oral products and hair styling tools, amongst others.
While browsing the shop, another thing that stood out for me was their packaging. I love the way they designed their bottles, tubs and pump dispensers!
Iya shared with us that her favorite Watsons product is something not many women know about and is actually one of the best discoveries she’s had while shopping at Watsons. She's obsessed with these Watsons Footease gel cushions as they make her shoes easier to walk in and make those long hours in heels more bearable. I picked up a few of these gel inserts myself as I am always in heels and need additional cushioning for comfort.
While on the subject of foot care, I am really liking the Footease mint products (the ones on the top shelf.) If your feet are in dire need of some TLC, avail of their mint foot soak, exfoliating scrub and moisturizing lotion and have yourself a little foot spa treatment in the comfort of your own home.
Iya’s picks mostly include Watsons toiletries as well as wet and dry tissues which she often uses for work. To avoid bad hair days, she also keeps several Watsons hair styling products in her bag such as Watsons 3IN1 Hair Set, Watsons Round Curl Hair Brush and a Watsons Travel Hair Dryer.

Thank you to Watsons for inviting me and to Iya for spending the afternoon shopping with us! Super excited to use all these products and start pampering myself! I've made the switch and saved a lot. Now it's your turn! :)
