The Best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens

japanese sunscreens

I wanted to compile a rather small list of the best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens that I’ve personally used and loved for many a fine year. I’ve used a lot of Japanese sunscreens over the years but three featured in this post are ones I come to back to again and again and again because I love how well they perform, how great they look and feel under makeup, and how fabulous the formula is.

Unfortunately, the US market hasn’t quite caught up to the Japanese one when it comes to creating lightweight, easy to absorb SPF formulas. I truly believe the Japanese excel at this which is one of the reason I purchase sunscreen products from Japan. They also happen to be affordable picks as well!

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara Review

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara ($22) is a lengthening mascara with a lightweight formula that infused with “stretch polymer” to give the look of false lashes. This mascara and a few other Touch in Sol makeup products have recently launched at Sephora.

Touch in Sol is actually a Korean brand which Sephora recently started carrying. Along with Tony Moly, Dr Jart, and a few other Korean brands, Sephora is well on its way to being the next Urban Outfitters and I, for one, am quite happy to see more Korean brands easily accessible at one of my favorite places to shop beauty!

Let’s take a peek Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara below!
