Watsons Singapore has recently held an interesting DHC Rebranding Media Event to introduce a refreshed brand direction with the launch of three new ranges: DHC Kakonjuka Skincare Series (anti-aging), DHC Collagen Powder (oral beauty supplement) and DHC Cleanecea (acne supplement).
DHC, with a legacy of 33 years in Japan, is the No.1 direct-to-consumer provider of beauty products, including skincare, body care, makeup and beauty health supplements. DHC is exclusively available at selected Watsons stores in Singapore.
The event began with an introduction of the brand, presented by Micheas Chan, Marketing & Merchandizing Director of Watsons Singapore.
Ms Kimiko Ikeda, DHC Beauty Advisor from Japan, shared with us the beauty tips on how to regain youthful beauty with DHC.
The beauty therapist from Japan demonstrated the benefits of wrapping face with hot (warm) towel prior using the DHC Medicated Q Pack Sheet. This method helps improve absorption of beauty essence such as the Medicated Q Pack Sheet.
1) After washing the face, place a hot (warm) towel (towel soaked with water and warm up in microwave for about 30 seconds) on your face for about one minute. 2) Remove the hot towel and put on a Medicated Q Pack Sheet on your face for 20 minutes. Remove the sheet and apply a moisturizer.
Can you believe these women are all over 40s! Wow! You can still look fabulous even over 40! I may keen to join this club if it is in Singapore. I’m already in my mid-40s this year, sad…….
During the event, we got to preview these DHC Essential products including Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, Washing Powder (S$22.90 for 50g), Make-Off Sheet (NEW, S$17.50 for 50 sheets)….
….. Collagen Powder (NEW, S$58.50 for 5000mg), Deep Cleansing Oil (S$43 for 200ml), Mild Lotion (S$55.90 for 100ml), Olive Virgin Oil (S$72.90 for 30ml) and Olive Virgin Soap Bar.
Virgin Olive Oil, one of nature’s finest ingredients and is the foundation of DHC’s line of skin-gentle products, is claimed to help achieve and maintain healthy, younger-looking skin.
New DHC Collagen Powder, retailing at S$58.50 for 5000mg, is a beauty collagen supplement powder that is packed in a zipper bag with a measuring soup for convenient use. It helps replenish and maintain a healthy collagen level for a firm and supple skin. It can be added to food or drinks for easy consumption.

It contains 50mg of Vitamin C which increases collagen and is FREE of sugar, preservatives, coloring and flavoring.
I really love this DHC Collagen Powder very much! It tastes so great with my acai berry juice! I have been taking it almost everyday and I’m finishing it real soon.
