In Japan, you’ll find plenty of quality beauty and skincare products that won’t break the bank. Even better, most are widely available at any local Japanese drugstore, so you don’t have to hunt through a fancy department store for a product that works. The only hard part about beauty shopping in Japan is figuring out what to buy – products here often have creative names, even for beauty brands, which can be confusing sometimes.
From foamy face wash and makeup remover to moisturising cream and sunscreen that’s kinder to your skin, these are some of the best and most affordable Japanese skincare products you need to try out. The prices we’ve listed here are from online stores, but most Japanese chemists and drugstores carry them, too – just be aware that prices may vary depending on the shop.
