Get-To-Know-WATSONS Media Tea @ Heart Bistro

I attended the Watsons Media Tea session last week. It was an intimate session with the local media (editors from various local magazines) and 2 bloggers (if I'm not wrong), hosted by Watsons Singapore. This tea session was to let us know more about DHC, the No. 1 direct mail skincare company in Japan and about Watson's upcoming plans for DHC brand. Doreen (Watsons) also introduced to Watsons House Brands and various other brands carried under them, eg DHC, Pure Beauty and Avalon Organics.

Avalon Organics! I really like their volumising shampoo! Very nice small, and really clean my scalp well + control the oil. Hope they will bring this in w/o jacking up the price too much so that I won't have to spree it from the USA anymore!
