Japanese Cosmetics straight from Tokyo!

Who does not dream about fresh, flawless and healthy-looking skin? We all do. So when my husband told me we are going to Japan I got super excited and couldn’t wait to dig into all the beauty products.

Oh boy, this trip was amazing. If you want to read more check out my Tokyo, Japan – travel guide.

Our trip was kind of spontaneous and we didn’t have too much time to plan but we still ended up having a great time. My research was kind of broad if it comes to the cosmetics that are worth buying. But I did have an idea. And of course, I bought even more than I planned 😀

I didn’t have a chance to try out all of them just yet but the ones I did, I can tell you I do love!

I have to say I’m really surprised that quite few of these products are available at Walmart. I am wondering if the quality is actually the same. I’ve seen that lots of them that are sold on Amazon are not the same and don’t really work. I’m thinking of getting the cosmetics that are available here to compare to the ones I brought from Japan. That could be an interesting experiment.

Let me know if you ever tried any of Japanese cosmetics and what was your experience.
