12 Japanese Drugstore Beauty Products You Can Actually Buy in the U.S

Updated 04/23/19

Scroll through the Instagram stories of any beauty aficionado on a trip to Japan, and you'll probably become overwhelmed with envy at all the amazing Japanese drugstore beauty finds they're stocking up on. We always want what we can't have (which is why I'm doomed to curl my stick-straight hair into beachy waves every day from now until eternity). A similar concept applies to these Japanese beauty products: Because they're hard to come by, we want them even more.

So we did the heavy lifting for you and scoured the internet for the best Japanese drugstore beauty products that you can buy stateside. Stellar products—and adorable packaging—abound. Check out our list below.
