Two weeks ago, I was privileged to be invited to Watsons‘ Get-To-Know-You Media Tea at Heart Bistro @ Palais Renaissance. About 10 guests including editors from Her World Magazine, Shape Magazine & 2 beauty bloggers (including myself) have attended this Watsons private event.

This is my first Watsons invite and thanks to Serena and Jolene from Huntington Communications for extending this special invitation to me.

The agenda for this event is to get to know more about DHC Skincare, the Japan’s #1 direct mail-order skincare brand and its upcoming plans for year 2011. In addition, to find out more about Watsons Brands that also include Pure Beauty, Avalon Organics & Watsons House Brand.

    I’ve been googling pure beauty products, I am on roaccutane and my eye area got so dry that I had to buy a nice eye cream, ı tested the black pearl-pure beauty line’s eye cream, I don’t care about the antiaging but it was so smooth, mouisturizing and not oily after so I purchased.So pleased with it, I cannot comment on the antiaging properties of that since I am only 22 :) But the formula is very very lightweight and I am in love :) Now I am very impressed and trying to get to know this brand, I am after this whitening line now, for my scars and uneven skin tone.Nice review:) Loves from Turkey :)

    Hi Gulsen,

    Yes the Black Pearl Pure Beauty range is pretty good. These anti-aging products are extremely suitable for younger consumers who want to prevent aging at an early age.

    bdw , Does the DHC mukunon drink also help in losing weight or slimming down on the thighs ?
    thanks in advance !!!

  6. Shirleen says:

    Hi Calz,

    DHC Mukunon helps to promote blood circulation and is created for individuals who are prone to swollen feet and legs due to excessive sitting. It reduces retention for slimmer calves but I don’t think it can help on losing weight though.

Got something to say? Go for it!
