I got another Watsons Beauty Box and this time it’s filled with Watsons Skin Wonders! Yep, the title speaks for itself. This post is going to be all about your skin, skin, skin. Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? This is why taking care of our skin is so darn important… It’s not all because we’re vain (that’s only half of the reason heehee), it’s because it’s the part of our body that keeps us all intact and without it we’d be exposed, vulnerable and probably dead!
This time though, we’re leaning towards the vanity factor. I don’t know about you, but I like taking care of my skin, especially on my face, because it’s the part that everyone sees – especially me. I want to look good for myself because well, I’m the one who has to live with myself for the rest of my life! I’m not afraid of ageing, in fact, I celebrate it, but if I can look as youthful as I can longer, then I would do it. If I had known how damaging the sun would be, I would’ve started wearing facial sunscreen ages ago. If I had known that rubbing your eyes endlessly whenever they’d get itchy caused fine lines, I never would’ve bothered putting a finger near my eye and just endured every itch that came my way. But alas, being young and naïve has caught up with me and I will just have to bear with it. That doesn’t mean looking youthful is a lost cause though! I can still get the smooth, glowing and youthful looking skin through various products, like the ones in this Watsons Skin Wonders Beauty Box!

Since there’s so much Skin Wonders in this Watsons Beauty Box to go over, I’ve taken the time to go through them and pick out my top 5 favorites of the bunch! Shall we?
Top 5 picks: Purederm Nose Strips, Purederm Clean & Fresh Peeling Gel, Purederm Collagen Eye Zone, Quick FX Tinted Moisturizer, and Quick FX No Shine Mattifier
- Purederm Clean & Fresh Peeling Gel
This peeling gel contains apple, lemon and orange extracts which deeply clean pores and gently exfoliates your skin for a fresh and healthy look. I tried this product and found it a little misleading in regards to the photo on the packaging and the term “peeling” gel. I initially expected that it would be a very thick substance, like glue, that you spread on your face and when it dries up, you can peel it off. Even so, I tried the product and it’s actually a white, almost clear substance that did in fact smell like apples, lemons and oranges! It exfoliated my skin as I spread it on my face, and I only left it on for a few minutes before I washed it off. I was left with smooth skin and it didn’t feel drying at all! I left my face untouched for the rest of the day with no issues of drying or getting oily.
- Purederm Collagen Eye Zone Mask
I love stuff like this! It’s an under eye mask enriched with collagen, vitamin E and green tea extract (all a big fat YES for skin), all of which provides hydration while diminishing the signs of aging. It also helps reducing puffy eyes and dark circles. I store my masks in the fridge to keep them cold! Perfect for mornings after staying up late at night or crying too much after your favorite Game of Thrones character dies.
- Quick FX No Shine Mattifier
I love mattifiers because they always leave my skin looking smooth right before makeup application. This Quick FX No Shine Mattifier didn’t disappoint! You can use it before or after applying makeup to smooth our pores and fine lines (a problem of mine), and to absorb facial oil (not an issue for me, but will definitely help out all my ladies out there who have oily skin) to get that smooth and matte skin.
- Quick FX Tinted Moisturizer
I love tinted moisturizers because it’s perfect for those days I don’t want to wear foundation, and I just want to step out with my skin looking natural. The Quick FX
Tinted Moisturizer can help even out your skin while moisturizing it. Would I recommend this as a foundation? No, I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t recommend any tinted moisturizer as a foundation substitute to cover up dark spots or other flaws that foundation can cover. I can recommend the Quick FX Tinted Moisturizer as something light for your skin, perfect for those “no makeup” makeup days!
- Purederm Nose Pore Strips
I am absolutely surprised with how well this product works! It’s a pore strip that cleans out your pores and gets rid of blackheads. Now, I don’t really have blackheads on my nose, but I do get a lot of the gunk in there that keeps my pores clogged and noticeable. I’ve tried a lot of other nose strips in the market, but this one by Purederm is by far the most successful. By successful I mean it really got a lot of the gross build up in my pores. My boyfriend, Gab, was actually the first person to try this product for me, so a few days later we gave it a go again and took photos this time to show you!
Pore strips on our noses first thing in the morning! I’m still wearing my pajamas, and Gab still has sleepy eyes.Look at all the gunk standing on the pore strip. That was in my nose! GROSS! But aaaahhh, clean pores!
So, there you have it, my top five picks and my honest opinions on each one. I had fun testing out these products and even discovering new brands that I can incorporate into my beauty routines!
You can find all these products and more EXCLUSIVELY at any Watsons store near you. That’s right, they’re only available at Watsons ;)
