Honeyz Belles @ Watsons Girls Day Out
What’s better than shopping? Celebrating Watsons’ 27th birthday (same age as me btw!) and receiving lots of new and exclusive goodies of course! Just last week, Watsons had a Girls Day Out event at Nex and invited many beauty bloggers to the beauty bash!
Just like a mini fun fair for the ladies, we were able to try out near 30 over brands of new products, some of which are exclusive only to Watsons, and the experience was pure heaven!
To make shopping more convenient, Watsons has also launched the Watsons eStore which not only features in-store products, but also many exclusive products and brands, as well as bulky items that are not typically available in the brick-and-mortar stores. This allows customers to skip payment queues and pick up their purchases from selected “Click & Collect’ stores. Free delivery is also offered with a minimum purchase of $80 with items being delivered within two days by a trusted and reputable carrier.
HoneyzCube’s Favourite Brands and Products
As there were simply too many great products and brands, I’ve gotten Juliana, the Polymath and Ben, the Alchemist to select 3 brands/products to recommend to you guys. So before sharing with you our favourite products, here’s the list of exclusive (and new) brands: Divinia | Pure Beauty | Kustie | Bioderma | Honeyce’ | Watsons Hair Pro | Bene Bluria & Rougeria | Yu Pin Zhen | Energeyes | Smile Maker | Depend | Kerasal Nail.
There are also many well-known brands with new product launches, such as: Colgate | Honey House | Kinohimitsu | Sensodyne | Scholl | Silky Girl | Revlon | Maybelline | Kate Tokyo | Asience | L’Oreal | Hada Labo | Vichy | Bio-Essence | Cetaphil | Himalaya
Now off to the products recommended by Ben, our Alchemist (✓), Juliana, our Polymath (✓) and me, the Purist (✓)! Pssst, if you don’t know, Ben’s the man whom the Belles have to please, as without him, we wouldn’t have these beautiful photos to show you!
Kustie is a shower gel brand formulated in France where every bottle is packed with handpicked petals, essential oils and natural nutrients to let your skin experience the freshest touch of nature with every wash.
The gel foams easily to provide a relaxing environment for an indulgent bath, and rinses off readily for those in need of a quick refreshing shower. There are four floral scents – Chamomile, Cherry Blossom, Lavender (Alchemist’s recommendation!) and Rose to choose from. Suitable for all skin types.
24K Bio-Essence ✓
Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold series is one of the most popular products in the market and after undergoing a revamp to include bird’s nest essence for a more premium and nourishing formula, the Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold series has expanded their range to include the enticing 24K Bio-Gold Water and 24K Bio-Gold Platinum Dual Cream.
Do You Know that besides being a powerful anti-oxidant, gold can also strengthen your skin and enhance the skin’s natural ability to renew itself, therefore improving skin elasticity? This series is especially suitable for women with pre-ageing concerns who are looking for lasting youthfulness and radiance. You must be surprised that our dear alchemist chose this as one of his favourite products. Well, guys have the right to want to look good and youthful too, right?
With the frequent use of digital devices such as smart phones, tablets and computers everywhere, even when we are on the move, most people are spending a large portion of their time on them. And these digital device screens actually emit harmful blue light which causes digital eye strain with prolonged exposure. With Energeyes Digital Lenses, the symptoms of digital eye strain (such as redness, irritation, blurred vision, eye fatigue and headache) can be alleviated as it employs a proprietary technology that is able to reduce harmful blue light by up to 50% and eliminate glares from digital screens.
Energeyes Digital Lenses are ideal for individuals who have no corrective needs as well as contact lenses users. Selling at $67.90, this is definitely a good buy for digital addicts like us! If you are wondering why is it only the Alchemist and Polymath in love with the product, it’s because I’m using Crizal Prevencia Lenses which have similar functions!
As we do more and more creative and colourful hair dyeing, daily maintenance is the next most important thing besides frequent hair treatments. ASIENCE introduces its brand new Beauty Serum which deeply repairs, moisturizes and softens hair, giving it an instant boost of softness, smoothness and shine for youthful looking hair.
It is definitely one of the Polymath’s MUST USE products in order to have healthy and beautiful hair. We are both wearing the 6 natural ingredients used in the serum on our heads. Can you name all 6 of them?
The Kinohimitsu BB Drink won the belles’ heart from the start as it is a functional and instant drink that promises to help restore your skin’s natural glow and clarity – not only on the face but the entire body, including the back, hands and legs. It works best for dehydrated, oily and acne prone skin (It’s like totally made for me!).
Often, our skin may look dull and lifeless due to a lack of hydration, lack of essential vitamins or adverse environmental conditions. The Kinohimitsu BB Drink is infused with hydrolysed bird’s nest, chicken cartilage (a source of hyaluronic acid) and fermented yeast (a source of co-enzyme Q10, CoQ10), all of which help to nourish, hydrate and rejuvenate every single skin cell in your body for a baby-like, rosy complexion! Which girl would say no to great skin?
Yu Pin Zhen ✓
While diamonds are most girls’ best friend, Bird’s nest is definitely the Purist’s best friend. There are many brands and many types of bird’s nest in the market, but Watsons brought in theYu Pin Zhen Pure De Yan, processed by Gene Oasis, the first and only licensed company to operate a certified factory for processing dried bird’s nest and bird’s next extracts.
The company ensures that their products are free from harmful chemicals such as nitrites and bleaches, and are scientifically rid of microbial pathogens, including the bird flu virus. (Yes, that’s the test they are showing us during the event!) With the highest assured quality, Yu Pin Zhen’s Pure De Yan bird’s nest products are a nutritious treat perfect for people of all ages and at all stages of their lives.
I don’t think I need to introduce Cetaphil, one of the leaders in the market for dermalogical skincare. Since secondary school, I was introduced the brand and shown how gentle its products are. Now, Cetaphil has launched the Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths which are make-up remover wipes.
Pre-moistened with a soap-free formula, the high quality cloth is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and fragrance free. It’s suitable for use on the face including the eye area and comes in a travel-friendly pack. What I like most about this product is its re-sealable lid which ensures that the 25 pre-moistened cloths do not dry out and moisture is sealed away tightly within the package.
Thanks Watsons and Happy 27th!
