Event: Watsons Flagship Store First Year Anniversary

In October, Watsons celebrates as it's crowned Singapore’s Favourite Personal Care Store in a survey by Brand Alliance and celebrating its flagship store's first year anniversary - "Watsons' Firsts Party". 
Conducted with Gen Y consumers between 18 to 28 years old earlier this year, the survey also saw the Watsons Card, which has over 660,000 members, being chosen as the preferred loyalty card in Singapore.

Mr Daniel Teo, General Manager of Watsons Singapore, said, “Watsons is leading the beauty and health industry with a comprehensive range of products that are on-trend and widely sought after, such as UK’s Collection Cosmetics and the latest range of facial and body massagers. We have been the number one drugstore brand in the region for four consecutive years, and we will continue to bring the best to our customers and enhance their personal shopping experience.”
The store has seen a double digit growth as well as new and exclusive brands, such as Atorrege AD+ and Bio Essence Professional, and products gracing its shelves over the past year.
In line with the brand’s promise to deliver the latest health and beauty trends, Watsons will once again be introducing a plethora of on-trend beauty brands and products from around the world.

Sonispa Ultrasonic Body Slim Massager – Red Light
Utilizing micro-wavelength to activate skin cells, the Sonispa Ultrasound Body Slim Massager – Red Light allows for an increase in product penetration into the skin layer to break down fat molecules. With a vibration of one million frequencies per second (1MHz/sec), the Sonispa Ultrasonic Body Slim Massager – Red Light is able to improve the absorption of active ingredients (products) into the skin within seconds, thus enhancing the slimming effect. As a result of the red light therapy increasing the skin’s metabolism, a luminous and fairer appearance is achieved.

Sonispa Ultrasonic Deep Facial Spatula
The Sonispa Ultrasonic Deep Facial Spatula deeply cleanses pores, re-activates skin cells, and provides lifting and astringent effects to the skin. With a vibration of 25,000 frequencies per second (25kHz/sec), the spatula will work its way to remove excess skin dirt, oil and dead skin cells! The appearance of pores and dirt build up will be minimalized, whilst enabling a skin lifting and toning effect

I had used this gadget before or rather, I had been used by this gadget (lolx~) during facial and the result of deep cleansing my pores is amazing! I would really love to get this gadget for home use! ^,^
