Watsons invited me and a few bloggers to experience the revamp of their new shopping experience and brand revamp. We shopped with the new refreshed brand “look and feel” — modified Watsons logo, store interiors, brand visuals and new store front. There are new staff and manager uniforms featuring a smart tailored look, together with enhanced pharmacy, health and beauty counseling for customers, delivering a new level of personalized shopping.


Looking sharp! New staff and manager uniforms.


There is a wide selection of health and beauty products personal care, skincare, hair care, cosmetics. Filled my basket with pocket tissues and wet wipes (always practical in this world of bring-your-own-tissues). I’m also trying BYS nail polishes for the first time – one is matte and the other one is scented.


I decided to stock up on these boxes of tissues. They were on sale and were already very cheap to begin with. Oh my shoes – if you’ve been following my Instagram during my travels, you’d remember these one of the pairs of Swedish Hasbeens I bought in Imelda shoe store in Toronto. Dress is from J.Crew.


“The new brand ‘look and feel’ is designed to reflect Watsons’ dynamism, immediacy and personal touch that today’s customers in Asia expect from a leading retailer,” said Viki Encarnacion, Watsons Philippines Marketing Director. “We are enhancing the overall Watsons’ shopping experience, whilst continuing to ensure our pioneering products.”


“Watsons, as a brand, stands for contemporary living,” Robert U. Sun, Watsons Philippines General Manager. “We conducted extensive research with our customers and, based on their feedback, are evolving the Watsons brand to a more contemporary, attractive and engaging retail experience.”


I tried this deep heat massager. Because I have a neck situation, I bought it. I’m using it sparingly though until I get the go signal from a physical therapist.


Bumped into Frances Sales of Topaz Horizon there with her cute boys Inigo and Vito. I miss this baby/toddler stage. Sigh.


By August Watsons will launch its Android and iOS app. It will have health and beauty tips, new product updates and exclusive discount coupons. Check out the App Store and Google Play in August.
