Summer is in the air! We’ve started to feel the sumer heat recently and this marks the start of our beach escapades and road trips. Have you planned any getaway with your family or friends yet? As for me, I’m all set to be back in Boracay, which will be my “home” for a week! 😀 Oh, I can’t wait to feel the warmth of the sun! But going all out also means getting the best protection we need to make the most out of the sunny days ahead.


Watsons gives us more reasons to take pride in a uniquely Filipino summer experience with the campaign: Watsons Sun Up to Sun Down. The leading health, beauty and lifestyle retailer brand partners with the Department of Tourism in promoting lush landscapes, pristine shores, and cultural gems—destinations any summer-loving citizen should journey to.


Wherever we are headed this summer, we have to keep our skin protected from Sun Up to Sun Down. Watsons have a wide range of sunscreen lines to suit every sun care need.


  • Nivea Sun contains UVA & UVB filters which prevent harmful rays from penetrating your skin and causing damage.
  • Belo SunExpert for long lasting sun protection. It also has cell protect formula to prevent premature aging.

Last February 28, 2013, Watsons in partnership with the Department of Tourism, launched this Sun Up to Sun Down Campaign at the Sofitel Manila Seafloor Garden. Health and beauty editors, bloggers and other members of media enjoyed a hand massage, manicure session and a poi dancing class before watching the program hosted by Menchu Antigua and Gino dela Peña. Mr. Robert Sun, General Manager of Watsons Philippines, and Ms. Susan Del Mundo of the Tourism Promotions Board were also present during the event. We all had had fun under the sun that day! Here are some photos during the event.
