Japanese beauty products are always highly regarded. While many people think that Japanese beauty products are really expensive, there are many high-quality products available that fit into anyone’s budget. Let’s take a look at three top picks!


This isn’t just a normal lip balm or lipstick – it’s a combination of both! It’s moisturising and at the same time lends your lips a nice, cheerful pink shade. So it’s really suitable for people who prefer more natural lip colours to heavy lipstick colours, as well as for those suffering from chapped or dry lips. It also contains special UV protection ingredients. What’s more, no matter what colour you choose, they will all look good on you because the colour palette is specially designed to match Asian skin hues.

It comes in a range of colours from light to dark shades. A new tinted collection was recently launched in summer 2017, and has longer staying power than the normal collection. It’s recommended to apply it before you go out, and re-apply after meals.

This is a newly introduced product from the maker of the famous Lycée eyedrops. If your eyes feel tired, or if you do a lot of work on the computer, then this is highly recommended for you. This refreshing eyewash is especially nice to use because of this soft cup!

This is the best creation ever! Normally, the eye washes we’re used to come with hard cups. But as usual, Japan has come up with an innovation that nicely fits the needs of busy lifestyles. While using this soft eye wash cup, you can squeeze it to circulate the liquid inside to swish away all the dirt in your eyes. The liquid formula cleans away dirt and dust, reducing itchiness. Once you try it, you won’t want to use any other eye wash! It’s inexpensive and so nice to use! If you see it in a Japanese drugstore, you simply must bring it back with you!

This is one of those must-have hair mask or treatments for those whose hair is damaged by chemical processing, and it’s incredibly affordable too. After just one use, you can feel the difference. It leaves hair feeling smooth, manageable and not frizzy at all, and makes it easy to blow-dry. The effects last for quite a long time, too. Given the price, size, and long-lasting effectiveness, it gives excellent value for money and is strongly recommended.
