Popular Japanese brand coming to Watsons

new Japanese range coming to Watsons

I’m really liking our Watsons here for the exciting slew of skin care products they’ve been introducing in succession.   First, it was new organic products.  Then, it was Dr Jart+ from Korea.  And soon, they’re going to bring in a major Japanese skincare range that many girls around the world have been raving about. 

Yes, this  info is reliable because I was given a kit of four product samples to try recently, including their star product which received a rating of 4.2 out of 5 from 1037 reviewers at Makeupalley.com and is stated as the most purchased item in its category within Japan.  I have actually featured this product before here and was eyeing it sometime back myself.  And now it’s finally going to be here!  And of the four product samples I received, one of them works pretty well as the key ingredient in the DIY lotion mask introduced by Chizu Saeki too!

Anyway, I’m not going to review the products because the launch info is embargoed and I’m not allowed to reveal the brand as yet.  But I thought it might be fun to get you guessing which brand Watsons is bringing in from Japan.  As it is, I think a number of you can tell by looking at the color of the product.

So which brand do you think this is?  Or which brand do you hope this is? Answers please!

  2. boo says:

    yup! definitely DHC ..actually the news was leaked already in the papers :p

  3. BT says:

    I guess is DHC too. The middle one with yellow oil got me thinking of DHC deep cleansing oil, and the right one with pale yellow should be their EV Olive oil. Not sure the pink one, the mild lotion?? Anyway, is DHC the answer???

  4. Jyoan says:

    Totally looks like DHC Olive Cleansing Oil. hahaha.

    No matter what brand, I think there will some good items from it. So looking forward. =)

  5. boo says:

    Watsons will debut DHC’s most popular Olive Essentials Set, which has been created around DHC’s 4-step skincare ceremony.

    Other ranges including health supplements will be offered next year.

    (my bad, the info was not on the papers but via Facebook)

  6. stella says:

    oh great, i’ve always wanted to check out DHC’s cleansing oil

  7. AtelierGal says:

    I’m pretty sure its DHC, there was a _ _ _ clue lol. Can’t wait to try their products.

  8. Cheryl says:

    Woohoo for DHC’s cleansing oil!

  9. zhenling says:

  10. sesame says:

    Aha…so I guess you like the brand in a sense? ?

  11. sesame says:


  12. sesame says:

    Yup, something to look forward to. I hope they’ll bring more!

  13. sesame says:

    The Facebook entry stated end Nov but the launch is as early as next week I understand.

  14. sesame says:

    Quite a giveaway clue? Hee…

  15. sesame says:

    Yes, it would be definitely be nice if they can bring in more stuff. I know that Japanese brand you mentioned – would love to see it here too!

  16. sesame says:

    I’m sorry but whoever leaked that isn’t very professional in my opinion.

  17. sesame says:

    Woohoo all round!

  18. sesame says:

    Yeah, at least there’s a store to check it out soon.

  19. Amanda says:

    Looks like DHC’s Olive Essentials set.

    Sadly I don’t think we have that brand here =(.

  20. Blovet Beauty says:

    that yellow stuff seriously looks like DHC… sesame.. I am getting so excited about this news. I’ve always loved watsons and they are getting so good at bringing in cosmetic and skincare !!

  21. sesame says:

    Oh…which country are you from?

  22. sesame says:

    Yes, they’re great! I always like to linger at the stores even if I don’t have anything to get. My husband used to joke that I should work there.

  23. Dee says:

    I wish I was in singapore! But I can’t wait for you to do reviews once the line officially arrives. I was going to say DHC too, haha.

  24. Amanda says:

    I’m from New Zealand =).

    And I haven’t seen that brand in shops at all.

  25. aichaku says:

    yeah! DHC! I hope they bring in everything!!!!! i’ve had a few disappointments with some products fr that brand but i do love to try their stuff. LOL.

  26. eliza says:

    looks like DHC to me especially the olive oil bottle in the middle.

    can’t use their cleansing oil @-@
    it cost me small bumps

  27. Kaye says:

    That is so DHC hahaha ? Too bad I’m not in Singapore. You guys seem to have a lot more beauty brands there! Our Watsons here is sorely lacking.

  28. LY says:

    i’m using DHC now and i heart it. hopefully the price is as competitive here as it’s in japan or taiwan.

  29. sesame says:

    I will review the samples I received soon…

  30. sesame says:

    It’s probably not available in NZ at the moment. Anyway, this brand is more active in the North Asian markets.

  31. sesame says:

    It’s not suitable for you? I did read some having the same experience as you. Probably some of the ingredients did not agree with your skin…

  32. sesame says:

    Where are you based? Yup, the Watsons in different countries really differ in terms of their operations and the stuff they retail.

  33. sesame says:

    How much did you pay for yours if you don’t mind sharing? I remember reading that it cost around S$15 in Japan?

  34. LY says:

    I think i got it at less than S$25 in taiwan when it’s on promotion. But taiwan’s watsons or similar stores always have very attractive promotions! hope singapore stores hv them too….

  35. sesame says:

    Yeah, I think they’ll fly off the shelves during promos!

  36. Idrotherapy Reviews says:
