It’s an accepted trade off. When you want something of good quality you must be willing to shell out the cash.
If you choose to scrimp and buy generics, be prepared for watered down, bad textured or flimsy products which need to be replaced or replenished right away. Not so with Watson’s in-house brands that combine quality with quantity and still come out cheaper than most. How? They have their own laboratory and factory so they do not need to shell out extra money to pay the middle man.
Watson’s boasts of being able to match or even surpass the quality of the leading brand at a much lower rate. So for products we use up daily why not switch to their brand and save a bundle you can set aside for a rainy day. For their 10th anniversary some items are buy one-take one! So go and take advantage.
Currently on buy one-take one promo:
1,000-ml shower gel in Green Tea (my favorite), Strawberry (best seller) or Peach scent at P249.75. So you actually get a whopping 2,000 ml for that price tag. Perfect for guest rooms or big families where it is unsanitary to share bars of soap.
500-ml hand soap at P139, their best-selling item for disease prevention essential for every sink in the house. Almond and Milk is my favorite as it moisturizes as well as cleans with that soothing homey scent.
Mint mouthwash at P229, the perfect mix of minty for fresh breath, potent antiseptic bacteria killer. Makes my eyes water and mouth burn when left for the full 30 seconds like the leading brand.
500-ml Extra-Shine Treatment Wax with Henna Extract at P239, may be used like an ordinary daily hair conditioner if left on for 60 seconds, or an intensive hair-pack treatment once a week left on for anywhere between three to 20 minutes before rinsing off. Strengthens hair strands, boosts shine and prevents tangles. May even be used to shave legs and underarms in the shower to prevent nicks and cuts and add moisture on skin.
Dirt cheap/ What a steal!:
50-m Mint Dental Floss at P39 for those with very tight spaces between teeth these may still get stuck though.
Two-piece toothbrush for P59, far from being simple it is ergonomically designed to reach back teeth and have gentle outer bristles to protect gums.
500-mg ascorbic acid at P140 for 100 pcs to prevent colds, cough and flu as well as boost immune system for overall health.
Top seller: pack of three Soft facial tissues, P129 for 450 pulls. Not at all flimsy or thin and made even softer than the known leading brands. No scratchy irritated noses or faces with this one.
The buy one-take one offer is good until supplies last.
