Round Lab, Korea’s National Toner, Lands at Watsons Philippines

We skincare enthusiasts in the Philippines have more reasons to be happy! K-beauty in the PH has just become a whole lot more exciting with the official arrival of Round Lab, one of Korea’s most beloved skincare brands. I felt a rush of excitement as I walked into the Balmori Tent at Powerplant Mall. As someone who’s been using their products for a while, I couldn’t wait to see them celebrated here.

What welcomed us was a screen that stated departure and arrival times of trips to different parts of korea, along with us being escorted into their "Immigration" set up with us giving our ticket and passport for having fun in their Roundtrip with Round Lab party.

Different booths were set up for us to explore the beautiful Korean Peninsula along with beauty discoveries through Round Lab's products, which contained diverse natural ingredients from the land where the sea, wind, and mountains meet. The event was more than a product launch; it was a celebration of Korean culture. There were fun activities, games, and giveaways, and guests took home mini suitcases filled with Round Lab products. The Korean food and drinks inspired by the brand’s ingredients were a tasty bonus.

From Yangyang, a destination known for its scenic beauty, harmonizing mountains, seas, and rivers, comes Round Lab's Pine Cica product line. This line has intensive calming properties and soothing effects, with products ranging from cleansers to pads, ampoules, creams, and masks.

Extracted from the pristine waters of Ulleungdo and Dokdo island at the farthest eastern end of the Korean peninsula comes Round Lab's famous 1025 Dokdo Toner, formulated with the deepest sea water ever used in the history of skincare. 

The 1025 Dokdo Toner is Korea's No.1 Toner, consistently ranking as #1 in Olive Young, Hwahae, and Coupang. The Dokdo line is not just about toners, as it includes various products from cleansers to pads, ampoule, lotions and more. All these products are perfect for those with sensitive skin like me.


Round Lab's Birch Juice Moisture Line is renowned for its exceptional moisturizing properties. The world-famous Birch Juice Moisturizing Sunscreen with SPF50+ is celebrated as Korea's number one sunscreen, having received multiple #1 awards from Hwahae, Glowpick, and Olive Young. The sap of Inje's Silver Birch Trees, infused with cool and fresh energy from the refreshing breeze, combined with Vita Hyaluronic Acid, provides deep hydration for dewy and healthy skin. The Birch Juice line includes cleansers, toners, moisturizers, ampoules, lotions, and sunscreens in creams, sticks, and cushions.

Their Mugwort line contains the extract of Sea Breeze Artemisia and Madecassoside from mugwort grown on Geomundo Island, where there is a fresh sea breeze. The line consists of a cleanser, toner, serum, mask, and soothing gels to help calm irritated skin.

From Jeongseon, where the dawn is cold and refreshing, comes the extract of homegrown black soybeans and a ceramide ingredient that provides deep nourishment to the skin. This is what is in Round Lab's Soybean product line, which includes cleansing oil, nourishing toner, serum, cream, and mask. These soybean products are clinically proven to provide deep nutrition and reinforce the skin barrier.

It was wonderful to meet Round Lab CEO Lee YoungHak and Overseas Team Leader Baek InSung, Overseas Manager for Asian Market Kim DongHyun, Marketing Manager Jo EunWhan, and Overseas Manager Rhee SooMin. Also present were officials from Watsons. Seeing them collaborate with Watsons to make these products available nationwide will definitely be a gamechanger for the skincare market here in our country.

A Dream Come True for Skincare Fans

As someone who’s been using Round Lab products even before they were available locally, this event felt like a dream come true. It was a joyful celebration of Korean beauty and a milestone for skincare in the Philippines. I’m thrilled to see how Round Lab’s products will enhance the skincare routines of many Filipinos.

I’m happy to be part of Round Lab's journey and can’t wait to see how Round Lab continues to inspire and transform lives with their amazing skincare products.
