The launch is the result of close collaboration with global supplier partners, including sector leaders Beiersdorf, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Kao, L’Oréal, Procter & Gamble, Reckitt, Shiseido and Unilever.
Admit it. When you go inside any Watsons store, most of the time, you’re not going out of the store without buying anything. I’m guilty to that. I love strolling around looking at different products available. Watsons usually is my go to store whenever I need to buy health, wellness and even beauty needs. Good thing that it has over 800 physical stores nationwide and a mobile app that is accessible to many Filipinos anytime, anywhere.
Now Watsons is back with its “Most Loved” products for the second year. These are the items that Watsons has recognized as the top brands shoppers picked & recommended from their counters and shelves.Take a look at Most Loved line-up which includes best of Health & Beauty, People’s Choice and New Favorites.
Health and wellness should be our top priority. Watsons, the largest health, beauty, cosmetics, and perfumery retailer in the world continues to encourage Filipinos to take better care of their health by making their wide-range selection of vitamins, supplements, health and fitness equipment, healthy food and drinks, first aid essentials, oral care essentials and personal care and skincare products easily accessible by its customers not only in their 800+ stores nationwide but also all their online channels.
In these trying times, a lot of stressors are causing us anxiety and fear. But since us Filipinos are very resilient, we are embracing the “new normal”and resume with our lives with positive attitude and big hope that this pandemic will end soon.
The past few months have been very challenging for each and everyone so keeping our well-being at optimum state is something should we think about or prioritize. How are we going to do that? Read on for some tips and recommendations from Watsons on how we can all stay strong, stay beautiful, during these times.
Stay Protected –Aside from wearing mask and practicing good hand hygiene, boosting up our immune sytem is one way to combat this deadly virus. We can also try to be healthier by exercising, eating a balanced diet, and by supplementing our body with vitamins from Enervon, Stresstabs and Watsons Generics.
Of course we should not forget our oral health with products from Listerine, Oral-B and Himalaya.
Stay Prepared –You wouldn’t know when will sickness can strike you may it be cough, colds and fever. So better be prepared and stock up with some over-the-counter medications. It’s a good thing Watsons is open on-site and online. We could also call the nearest Watsons branch for delivery which is very safe and convenient. So if you are feeling under the weather with cough, colds and fever, Strepsils, Sinecod Forte, Vicks, Solmux and Biogesic are my go-to brands. But of course better have your self checked by a doctor ok? just to be sure.
Stay Glowing –Even if most of the time we have to stay at home and become busy with household chores or office tasks(if you are work from home), we should never neglect to take care of our own self. There are many avenues for self-care even during challenging times. You can do yoga, do some DIY natural skin care regimens or use skin care products from brands that are already in the market such as Belo, Ponds, Celeteque, Neutrogena and Dermaction Plus by Watsons. These can really help your skin and boost your confidence.
Stay Gorgeous – A little change of hairstyle, or hair color can help boost your self-esteem. But with current restrictions placed on salons, we tend to try some DIY hair makeovers. What products that you may want to try? You can use L’Oreal Excellence, Beautylabo or Naturtint to color your hair and for aftercare, go for Pantene and Naturals by Watsons. Show that DIY quarantine look! Be proud!
Stay Dapper – Self-care encompasses a broad range of interests and activities but basically, what it means is that you should do something that makes you feel good. For men, embarking on a skincare journey is a good start. Skincare doesn’t need to be complicated. It could start with a mild facial cleanser and sunscreen. Adidas, Old Spice and Gillette are brands that offer men’s products to help with their skincare and grooming needs.
Watsons is always here to provide us with a wide range of health and beauty products in this time of pandemic to make us look good and feel great. That’s good thing to know right?

HEALTH IS WEALTH. This is so true. We should always make health our topmost priority no matter what. You may have good and flourishing career or maybe your dream job, a nice car, a house, and all the money in the world, but when you become ill, all of it wouldn’t matter.
Now that the world faces and battling a health crisis caused by Covid-19, people stayed at home as a pandemic traveled from country to country. And as we embrace the “New Normal” we should put our attention toward making and implementing good health practices.
Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on what you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy.
Being fit through physical activity is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Physical activity of at least 30 minutes a day has immediate and long-term health benefits. It strengthens our immunity and reduces our risk of cardiovascular diseases, helps us have stronger bones, muscles and joints and lowers the chance of us developing osteoporosis. The workouts don’t need to be complicated. There are many videos of simple home workouts on YouTube that you can check out.
Eating well benefits us in the long term by strengthening the immune system and helping the body fight illnesses. Antioxidant-rich foods such as citrus fruits, red bell peppers, garlic, ginger, leeks, squash, carrots, eggplants and camote can be incorporated into our diets. One thing I make sure to drink every day is Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea because tea is also an antioxidant.
Get quality sleep
A good night’s sleep boosts your immune system, improves your emotional wellbeing, and helps your body recover from stressors. Make your bedroom a mo-TV, no-gadget place at night and stop taking naps during the day so you get a good night’s sleep. Dim the lights and go off to dreamland.
Take vitamins regularly
A complete balanced diet is important for our body for it to get all the vitamins and minerals that it needs to function everyday and defend it against illnesses. Vitamins serve as a bridge so that your body gets the nutrients that it needs. Vitamin C, for instance, is believed to increase the production of white blood cells, which are important in fighting infections. Pro tip: Stock up on your supply with Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid.
Vitamin C isn’t the only vitamin that can keep you healthy. Enervon Activ Soft Gel helps boost immunity and promotes healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich with Vitamin E to help fight cell damage. For the kids, let’s help support their growth not just in height but in strength with Growee Syrup or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules.
Top up with supplements
Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. They also have antioxidants that can do a lot of good for your mind and body. They can include supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen and Organique Acai Juice. You can also keep your defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen.
Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for any health emergency. These include Lola Remedios, Strepsils, and Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, know that you can count on these items being available at Watsons.
Watsons is here to continue providing your family’s health essentials in any of its stores nationwide. You can also order online at watsons.com.ph or call on select branches to have your orders delivered. For contact details of branches near you, you can check out this list: https://bit.ly/2YMTCT1.

Another addition to the anti-obesity pills in the market that will surely help you lose those excess fats that you are hiding and being ashamed of.
LESOFAT, by InnoGen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is an anti-obesity drug that prevent your body from absorbing some of the fat from the food you eat. When taken 3 times per day with meals, LESOFAT blocks about 1/3 of the fat you eat from being absorbed. Instead, this fat passes through your intestines and is excreted in your stool. When you absorb less fat, you take in fewer calories, which cause weight loss.
LESOFAT is significantly more affordable in terms of daily treatment cost, which offers savings and better patient compliance towards successful weight loss.
When should you consult your doctor?
-If you are allergic to any medicines, food or dyes.
-Taking any other weight-loss medication
-Taking any other medicines including not prescribed by your doctor
-Taking any dietary supplements including herbal products
-Planning to become pregnant; -Anorexic or bulimic.
Who should not use Lesofat?
-Consistently have problems absorbing food (chronic malabsorpion).
-Have gallbladder problems.
-Are pregnant or breastfeeding a child.
-Have ever had an allergic reaction to Orlistat.
Dosage and Administration Orlistat (Lesofat):
It is given in a usual dose of 120 mg by mouth three times daily, immediately before, during or up to 1 hour after meals. If a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose should be omitted. Orlistat (Lesofat) therapy should be discontinued if the patient does not lose at least 5% of their body-weight during the first 12 weeks of therapy.
Gastrointestinal disturbances , including fecal urgency, incontinence, flatulence, and fatty stools or discharge, are the most frequently reported adverse effects during treatment with Orlistat (Lesofat). They may be minimized by limiting the intake of fat in the diet. Other reported side-effects have included headache, anxiety , fatigue and menstrual irregularities. There have been concerns about an increased risk of breast cancer in patients taking orlistat, but the manufacturers consider that there are no evidence of a causal link.
To prove that Lesofat really works is their latest endorser, radio jock “Chikki Boom-Boom” of M.O.R. 101.9 (ABS-CBN FM Radio) who personally use the brand.
From 157.4lbs last November 21, 2023 down to 145 lbs as of January 28, 2014. Chikki Boom-Boom lost 12.4lbs in a span of 3 months.
Nowadays, it is easy to lose weight especially when you use anti-obesity pills like Lesofat. But of course it is much better if you do it the natural way like doing exercise, eating the right diet, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
