As part of its 21st anniversary celebrations, Watsons is not only offering beauty aficionados some nice beauty bargains but also a mystery bag, filled with goodies from a plethora of established brands.

It costs S$21 (naturally!) but has a retail value of more than S$100.

An offer exclusive to the Internet, these goody bags are only available online at CozyShop from 4 to 18 March 2009 and stocks are limited.

A quick click on the CozyShop link reveals the participating brands to be:

  • Acne-Fix
  • Avalon
  • BRTC
  • Clairol
  • Clinelle
  • Cure
  • Dentiste
  • Dr. Tung’s
  • Dr. Wu
  • Energins
  • Fasio
  • K-Palette
  • Kiwi
  • Lavera
  • L’Oréal Paris
  • Maybelline
  • Mentholatum
  • Moxie
  • Olay
  • One-A-Day
  • Oral-B
  • Radox
  • Renew
  • Rojukiss
  • Sanctuary Spa
  • Sato
  • Skinvitals
  • Superdrug
  • Watsons
  • Whisper
  • Yes to Carrots
  • ZA

There may be other brands taking part in this offer, so who knows what other surprises these bags will hold?

I’m especially interested in the following brands and am going to hazard guesses as to what they might offer:

Dr.Wu – I’m hoping for a generous size of its new Intensive Hydrating Serum. Containing hyaluronic acid, more than 300,000 bottles of it has apparently been sold in Taiwan.

Fasio – Everyone knows I love Fasio mascaras. If they include one of their mascaras, you will finally see for yourself why. That said, I’m guessing they will contribute either their makeup removers, so often seen in their bundle packs or nail lacquers. Some of these nail polishes are pretty!

K-Palette – What could they possibly put into the mystery bag from K-Palette? A mini 24h Real Lasting Eyeliner, perhaps or a pair of scissors like the one they paired with their 24h Real Lasting Eyebrow brow pen some time back? If not these, then it could be anything ranging from nail polish to eyeshadows…not yet available here! I look forward to finding out about this one. :)

Kiwi – Gel inserts perhaps? Functional yet unobtrusive, their gel cushions would make a nice inclusion in these mystery bags.

L’Oréal Paris – In my experience, L’oreal, as well as the brands under the L’oreal umbrella, tends to be generous in giveaways and the like. I’m thinking skincare and with any luck, a lovely mascara or lipgloss! I’d love to try that new eye cream duo that encapsulates the eye cream needs of women so well with two individual chambers – one offering an anti-wrinkle cream, the other, an anti-puff solution – in one neat little pump bottle.

Maybelline – This brand, also under L’oreal, is more makeup-based, so I’m thinking lipsticks and pencils…and hopefully, a good mascara. What I’d really like to see is their gel liner! ;)

Mentholatum – An under-appreciated brand, Mentholatum makes some of the nicest menthol infused balms and glosses. A heat-activated balm, perhaps or a mini fruit-flavoured menthol gloss?

Moxie – I am guessing whimsically packaged tampons or panty liners will be included in the bag! I like that these sanitary protection products are packed in recyclable (and reusable) tins.

Superdrug – Something from the Tea Tree series, most likely and hopefully something that is full-sized!

ZA – Some form of skincare or maybe their SPF 40 sunscreen.

S$21 for mystery beauty promises…not a bad price to pay, really, to try a wide range of items from different brands!
