Last Tuesday, I was part of a select group of bloggers and beauty editors invited to attend the Watsons Beauty Lab event held at M Cafe in Greenbelt. It was indeed a beauty-filled event where we were served yummy food, presented Watsons' newest bath and beauty products, and even got to try them out first-hand!
I was too shy at first because I didn't really know anyone except for Miss Phoebe. Good thing Vern arrived after about ten minutes!

|Chocolate creme brulee|
I am seriously craving for this right now.
I know almost everyone will agree with me when I say Watsons is one of the happiest places for us girls ♥ I can wander around their aisles for hours, thrilled with the many new surprises at every turn. Whether it be a new lipstick, haircare products, or a new bottle of nail polish, I can never leave without buying at least one item. That's why I got so giddy when I found out that Watsons has introduced more new products into the local beauty scene!
The main presentations covered were about BB Creams, make-up removers, and the new H Bella bath and body care line. I will write more in-depth posts about these new products together with reviews so please watch out for them. Krissy as a beauty blogger, who would've thought? ;)
I don't know if I've already said it here, but the main reason why I transferred to Blogspot after blogging in Multiply for so long is because I got inspired by the different beauty blogs I found before while "researching" how to apply my own makeup without looking like I've been punched in the face. ;D You can just imagine how the little fan-girl in me was screaming with glee when I met some of them in person during the event.

I don't know why - maybe it was because of the topics, or the people asked to attend, or just the whole vibe of the place - but I wanted to come across as "mature" in the event yet still chic, so I wore this:
|Dress - Candie's | Peeptoe wedges - Chelsea | Bag - Tomato|
Now prepare for a barrage of photos. I wasn't able to go to the gym last week, but carrying these bags from Makati to my apartment in Quezon City served as my workout. All these came from Watsons:
|Do you see what I see? Lots and lots of goodies!|
|Purederm Magic BB Cream with Skin Conditioning effect (P699.00)|
|Gluta & Placenta BB Cream by Glorious Skin (P169.00)|
|Dream Girl Faith BB Cream|
|Pure Beauty UV White Sun Protection Compact|
|Instant White cream by Glorious Skin|
Facial cleansers and makeup removers:
|Cleanser & Toner in One | Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser |
Beauty Moisture Facial Cleanser | Fresh Touch Facial Cleanser
|Dove Foaming Makeup Remover (P359.00)|
|Pure Beauty: Perfect Cleansing Liquid, Perfect Cleansing Oil, Perfect Cleansing Water|
What excited me most is the H Bella Bath and Body Care because I was able to smell how gooood they felt. Here I have the Rose & Mixed Berries (my favorite), Strawberry & Cinnamon, and Pomegranate & Ginger.
|Protect & Nourish body lotions|
|Purity & Renew body polishes|
|Protect & Repair body butters|
|Protect & Nourish hand creams|
|Vaseline Lip Therapy in Cherry or Advanced (P75.00)|
|Deo sprays, Deo powder, Deo roll-on, Deo mineral sticks|
|Etude House Dry Sauna Special Kit|
|Skin Protec hand sanitizer|
These hand sanitizers with bag tags are so popular nowadays that almost everyone has one.
Watsons put their own twist onto it by putting UAAP universities' logo and slogan.
|Sad that my own university (PLM) was not included LOL.|
I have already tried some of them and I'm so excited to share my thoughts with you guys (I especially like the Rose & Mixed Berries line from H Bella!). I promise to work on them after the craziness of preparing for the Philippine Fashion Ball. I will be bringing some of these to the hotel room I have booked with my Fashion Compass girl Ana so I am expecting a fun, girly slumber party after the ball :)
Big thanks to Watsons and Miss Jenny and Gerick of ARC for inviting me! ♥
