For a rewarding and satisfying shopping experience, Sa Watsons Ako!

Leading health, wellness, and beauty retailer Watsons gives you a selection of over 10,000 products in over 900 physical stores as well as its online store. But beyond that, Watsons offers so much more.

Watsons, a part of the A.S. Watsons Group, is the world's largest health and beauty retailer. Watsons launched in the Philippines in 2002, a time when the concept of having a wide selection of health, wellness, and personal care products under one roof was still new in the country.

For pharmacists that care, Sa Watsons Ako

Watsons offers convenience with OTC and prescription medications and health and wellness services, including COVID-19 vaccinations via Resbakuna and blood glucose ang pressure checks. Watsons is also known for caring customer service with competent pharmacists who go the extra mile to address customer's questions and concerns. Watsons pharmacists talk to patients and customers one by one without rushing through them, pointing out, for example, the difference between branded and generic medications, as each branch is adequately staffed.

How to Apply for a US Visa for Minors below 14 Years Old via the Interview Waiver Program

Now that air travel is gradually returning back to normal, I find it timely to share my experience in applying for a US B1/B2 visa for my kid via the interview waiver program (i.e. no more personal appearance in the US Embassy). This used to be applicable only for renewal of 10 year multiple entry B1/B2 visas, but they have expanded the coverage late last year to first time applicant minors below 14 years old and those above 79 years of age. The process this year has actually gotten simpler compared to when I first did it late last year. Hope this blog post helps you to do the application process yourself seamlessly.

Please note that this process only applies to first time applications and visa renewals of minors under 14 years of age whose either or both parents have a valid US B1/B2 (Business/Tourist) Visa. As for my case, I am an unmarried solo parent and my kid (10 y/o) is under my sole custody (we have different surnames) and I was able to process my kid's application by submitting only my visa.

Give your skin and hair extra UV protection with Rosy Peel Plus

Much as we love the sun, we do not like what it can do to our skin. The damage the sun does to skin, which is known as photoaging, can result in wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and melasma and overall early aging. It’s not just the skin that can be affected by sun damage. Excessive sun exposure can dry your hair and even burn your scalp.

To avoid the harmful effects of the sun, always wear sunscreen when going out and protective clothing if you know you’re going to be exposed for long periods of time. Avoid sun exposure during the middle of the day, from about 10am to 3pm because this is when sunburn-causing ultraviolet rays are at their strongest. 

Boost your summer protection with Rosy Peel Plus so your skin and hair stay healthy in any weather. Rosy Peel Plus is an FDA-approved herbal beauty supplement that combines the power of collagen, which is the most abundant protein in the human body. Collagen makes up 75 percent of skin’s support structure. It helps keep skin soft, supple and young-looking. However, collagen production declines with age and exposure to factors such as smoking and UV light. Taking Rosy Peel Plus will help give your skin strength and elasticity.

Rosy Peel Plus has natural ingredients such as strawberry extract to give your skin the love it deserves. Strawberry extract has anti-aging properties and is rich in vitamin C, collagen and folic acid. Rosy Peel Plus also contains guava extract, which helps reduce wrinkles and dark spots and also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Meanwhile, kamias provides relief from swelling and also brightens skin while the berry-like bignay is rich in antioxidants so it helps fight aggressors such as pollution that can further damage skin.

Rosy Peel Plus provides skin clarity and UV protection. It also keeps hair hydrated and even helps it grow faster.

The benefits of taking Rosy Peel Plus go beyond aesthetics. It also protects your body and helps it heal from illnesses and even cuts and wounds, thanks to its vitamin C content.

Rosy Peel Plus is available at leading drugstores such as Mercury Drug and online channels such as Lazada, Shopee, Zalora and Zilingo. You can also get Rosy Peel Plus from Grab Mart and MetroMart for same-day delivery.
