Tessa Prieto Valdes is one of those celebrities who have made the big switch to Watsons. In fact, she loved it so much that she played the Watsons Girl part and encouraged other shoppers to do the switch as well.
" From personal care items, beauty essentials, and even medicine, Asia’s leading personal care store now offers a wider variety of products under its own label, giving shoppers the choice to save as much as 80 percent without compromising on quality.
With such irresistible deals, the campaign has caught the attention of several celebrities who have made the Switch and Saved including Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Patty Laurel, Iya Villania and the newest addition to group, Christian Bautista.
On May 2, Socialite Tessa Prieto-Valdes proved that you can mix style and practically as she dropped by Watsons SM Aura premiere and surprised customers with her shopping choices.
Although often seen at the grandest parties and most exclusive events, the SeaPrincess of Twitterverse, however, remains a very smart shopper when it comes to her personal items.
“A smart shopper knows when she is getting a good deal, that’s why a lot of us are always at here at Watsons, Valdes points out. “You’d be surprised with the savings you get just by choosing Watsons label products!”
To keep her looking picture perfect she chooses Watsons Body Serum Whitening that instantly lightens and reduces dark spots and visible imperfections. There’s also Watsons Body Lotion Whitening Mulberry designed to nourish and helps to provide whitening effects, giving you fairer and radiant skin.
Her bath essentials meanwhile include; Watsons Cream Handsoap Strawberry and Yoghurt that effectively cleanses and protects hands from dryness; Watsons scented cream body wash with goat milk; to gently slough off dead skin cells and helps to hydrate and brighten the skin and Watsons Milk & Salt Scrub Whitening to help enhance the skin, and exfoliate dead skin cells.
To keep her skin looking healthy and protect it from free radical damage, Tessa relies on a couple of products; Watsons Glutathione to lighten skin and prevent skin darkening caused by UV exposure; and Watsons Vitamin E to prevent eye disorders and help her avoid a number of diseases.
Tessa is the second Switch and Save ambassador to make a surprise visit to a Watsons store. Last April 11, 2015, singer Christian Bautista made the switch from singer to store supervisor for a day as he surprised shoppers at the Watsons Store SM Mall of Asia.
The only single guy in the group, Christian admits he’s been a regular Watsons shopper even before he became part of the campaign.
“I’ve always enjoyed shopping at Watsons because it’s very convenient, their store layout is very organized so its easy to find whatever you are looking for and of course they always have those great deals on the products I often buy!, Christian shared.
As one of the country’s most popular singers both locally and abroad, Bautista was the perfect choice to promote the brands oral care products. “As a singer, I really have to be extra careful of my oral hygiene so I always have a ready charcoal toothbrush, mouthwash, breath strips and even dental floss in my bag.”
Christian choice essentials include Watsons Charcoal Toothbrush that helps remove bacteria with bristles that clean deep in between teeth and the gumline; Watsons Tartar Control MouthWash to help kill germs that cause bad breath, and prevents tartar for a cleaner mouth; Watsons Breath Strips to keep his breath always smelling fresh and Watsons Dental Floss as dentists recommends flossing at least once a day to achieve optimal oral health; and too keep him looking clean he also makes sure he brings a Watsons twin blade razors for that smooth shave.
