In November, the leading retail brand announced Malaysia’s top 50 individuals who personify the Watsons retail brand and represents true essence of beauty and health. 

In its latest endeavour ‘50 Glowing Personalities’, GLOW Magazine by Watsons has identified top personalities who are known for their social influence in the industry. GLOW magazine is a health, well-being and beauty magazine for readers and people who have or aspire to have a healthy attitude towards life. The bi-monthly magazine brings latest trends to Watsons’ diverse customers’ base through beauty, healthy, lifestyle tips and step by step guidelines. If I remember it right, this magazine costs only around RM3, available at Watsons boutiques.
