While we're used to shopping at Watsons, only to be overwhelmed by the number of choices (all of them good), take a look at the best brands this year.
Best Skin Serum – Garnier Light Complete Vitamin C Booster Serum
This lightweight serum has Vitamin C and Japanese Yuzu Lemon. It's fast-absorbing and works to lighten dark spots and acne marks in days! This serum can be worn day and night because it's non-sticky and will work under makeup.
Best Mouthwash – Bactidol Oral Antiseptic
Bactidol protects the throat from germs because it has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Gargle with this after you come home to make sure your mouth and throat are germ-free.
Best Lipstick – Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick [16HR Waterproof] in Pioneer
In 2020, we all started wearing masks and a lot of people stopped using lipstick. Well, not everyone because a lot of Watsons shoppers still went for this powerful red shade because it's mask-proof.
Best Shampoo – Head and Shoulders Anti-Dandruff Cool Menthol Shampoo
This shampoo doesn't just clean your hair and scalp, it also helps control dandruff and has a menthol fresh feel and scent. One thing shoppers love about it: It keeps hair moisturized.
Best Body Lotion – Nivea Extra White C&A Vitamin Lotion
This nourishing vitamin in a lotion goes on light so it's not sticky. It also brightens skin and reduces dark spots in just days.
Best Bath Soap – Kojiesan Skin Lightening HydroMoist Soap
This skin-lightening soap with kojic acid is always sold out! Why? It targets dark spots and uneven skin tone and can be used on the face and body.
Best Deodorant – Deonat Papaya Mineral Spray
Deonat provides all-day protection against odor and helps lightens darkened underarms. It's also non-sticky and non-staining. What's not to love?

This Vitamin C supplement has always been a Watsons Most Loved because it's non-acidic so you don't need to take it with meals. It's perfect for those always on the go.
Best Adult Multivitamin – Centrum Advance
The catchphrase from "A to Zinc" is perfect for Centrum Advance because it lets you take just one capsule (instead of several) and you're all set for the day!

Best Topical Analgesic – Salonpas Medicated Patch
Salonpas provides relief from aches, pains and inflammations. This patch made of thin, stretchable fabric has two active ingredients: menthol and methyl salicylate. It's not just something titas and moms use. Everybody needs Salonpas!

This after-shampoo conditioner makes hair softer and straighter. It gets the frizz out even when hair is super-damaged. This is best for those who use heat for styling.

There is no problem making kids drink this Vitamin C supplement because it tastes good. This helps boost the immune system for protection from sickness.

Favorite Beauty Supplement – Nutrabliss by Watsons Mixed Berries + Vitamin C
This ready-to-drink supplement kept us healthy in 2020 and 2021 and we loved the taste, too. Vitamin C is good for you because it helps you recover from the common cold quicker plus it builds immunity.
Favorite Deodorant – Old Spice WC Invisible Solid Wolfthorn
Not surprisingly, the No. 1 deodorant in the US is also a hit with Watsons shoppers in the Philippines because it smells good, reduces armpit sweat and is so light you don't feel like you have deodorant. It's not a surprise that even women like it.
