Seems like the candyman dropped by ZA and added a touch of sweetness to their latest collection. Do you like candy-inspired colors? Yes? Then you’re in for a treat. Check out the latest Groovy Eyes and Cheeks palettes that will be available in Watson stores in Feb!
Last week, I had received an unexpected call. Something gruesome had happened! It appears that several beauty products were reported dead and the crime scene was a mess in Beauty County. So the special agents from Shiseido invited me over to check things out.
So first, the other BSIs and I had a briefing by Secret Agent, Samantha, on the happenings.
This is something new for me, yes, I’ve seen their products in Watsons for quite sometime but knew little of them. Off hand, I only know that they’re a UK brand and they should be pretty reputable. Furthermore, the Superdrug products caught my eye due to their really low pricing.
As a self-confessed beauty junkie, I’m ashamed that I have not learnt of this brand sooner. A quick search online shows that they are the United Kingdom’s second-largest beauty and health retailer currently operating over 900 stores in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We currently have 226 in-store pharmacies. Oh cool! That’s something like Watsons or Guardian over here and their website reminds me of US’s drugstore.com
Long story cut short, AS Watson bought them over in 2002. So that is why you see their products all over the Watson stores. In fact, they are kind of like a house brand… It’s like Watson’s in-house products.
So the only product from Superdrug I have tried would be the Pearl shower gel. They were going for 300ml at S$2.00 only! I would say it’s not too bad but if you’re fussy over your shower gels. Then perhaps this is not for you. It’s really basic and the scent isn’t much to rave about. But for the price I’m paying, it’s a reasonable product.
I’m looking forward to trying out some of their other products soon…
HM & I attended this ZA introductory workshop where they unveiled the new Queen in foundation! How exciting, isn’t it? Knowing that most of us grew up using ZA.
And my first foundation & pressed powder were both from ZA!
And because the consumers have grown up, ZA also decided to have a name change from just ZA to ZA-cosmetics. It’s like symbolic to showing how the brand has also grown and matured over the years along with it’s faithful fans.
DHC is now available in SINGAPORE! It can be found at Watsons Ngee Ann City, Bugis Junction, Compass Point, Raffles City & Ion stores.
Hmm… why Compass Point? Why not Jurong Point or North Point etc? Anyway, I am not sure of the price difference. Is it cheaper overseas or the price range is comparable in SG’s stores? Update me if you happen to drop by any of the above mentioned Watsons
