This year, Watsons has really gone all out in an effort to give Malaysians a great festive season ahead with their #HappyBeautifulYear CNY campaign. Here's what they've done so far:
1. Announce storewide sales and promos with up to 50% off and tons of freebies
From haircare and skincare products to cosmetics and beauty products, practically everything's on sale at Watsons! They've been constantly announcing new promos so stay tuned to their FB page for the latest sale updates.
So there's no better time to head over to your nearest Watsons and take advantage of all the discounts and promos to stock up on all your favourite supplies and products. Brb it's shopping time! We all gotta look our best for CNY after all, right?
2. They also produced three videos with tips on how to look good during Chinese New Year
The video series features two characters, Expert and Fairy, who try to show off their knowledge in haircare, skincare, and cosmetics. You can find all the products featured in the videos at any Watsons outlet, and enjoy great savings while you shop!
Here are the videos on skincare and cosmetics:
3. Collaborated with the team behind 'Think Big Big', one of the most highly anticipated movies of the CNY season
'Think Big Big' is the latest work from director Chiu Keng Guan, who also directed the hit local films 'The Journey' and 'OLA BOLA'. The feel good movie features an almost all-female cast, including the likes of former Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant contestants Serene Lim and Vivienne Oon, singer Ruby Yap, as well as newcomers Moon Yoong, Joanne Lau, and Keigrey Kam.
It tells the story of a plus-sized model who ends up having to join a weight-loss competition that requires her to document her weight-loss journey on social media in order to pay off her debts.
Last Friday, Watsons was proud to collaborate with the team behind 'Think Big Big' to present the premiere screening of the movie. Media reps (including us!) and Watsons Elite members got to attend the exclusive invite-only premiere and were even treated to an exciting lion dance performance as well as a meet-and-greet session with the movie's cast.
'Think Big Big' hits cinemas nationwide on 14 February 2018 so don't forget to catch it with your family as part of your CNY celebrations this year!
4. Create a series of videos to set Malaysians up for a healthy and beautiful Lunar New Year

5. Launch their own creative dance contest
Watsons invited Malaysians to come up with their own creative dance moves featuring their #HappyBeautifulYear Chinese New Year song, the catchy jingle that has been at the heart of all their CNY promos for years.
The video entry with the most views will win a big big ang pow of RM8,888! Plus, every submission automatically gets RM50 worth of Watsons VIP points.
It's been super fun to watch all the various entries on social media, including ones done by tons of local celebrities such as Amber Chia, Leng Yein, Leng Sean, Sean Lee, Syaa Nasir, Fatina Feefa, Fify Azmi, Arja Lee, as well as the cast of 'Think Big Big'.
And of course we just had to join in on the fun by putting together our own fun little muhibah version hehe.
The contest is still ongoing btw! The closing date for entries is only on 24 February 2018 so there's still plenty of time for you to get in on it and stand a chance of winning that ang pow. Maybe you could get your family to join in too :P
