Best Japanese Skin Care Products
1. Japanese Mascaras:
Japanese mascaras are the most durable mascaras you will ever come across. Most American companies are now repackaging and selling Japanese brands like FairyDrops at Sephora. Heroine Lash and Curl is another excellent option for Japanese mascara. They add tone and volume to the lashes and curl it at the same time. This mascara does not smudge at all and you will need a strong makeup remover for this, which is often sold by the same brand.
2. Shiseido Soft Whip Facial Wash:
Most foaming face cleansers leave the skin feeling clean and fresh but at the same time strips the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it drier than before. But with Soft Whip, which happens to be a drugstore cleanser, the natural oils of the skin are left intact and yet the sebum which causes acne, pimples, and blackheads is successfully removed. The texture of the cleanser is soft, almost creamy and it lathers into soft wash foam when water is added to it. This wash is suitable for all skin types and is very popular in Japan.
