Do You DHC? Japanese Skincare in a Western World

DHC Skincare Cosmetics

I’m commonly asked, “Where can I buy good Asian skincare in the US?” This is difficult to say as tracking down Japanese or Korean skincare in the US isn’t easy and most of it involves online sleuthing if you live in a small suburb or city. My city happens to have alot of little beauty shops that actually carry various Asian brands however my best success is swapping with friends who live abroad or going the Internet shopping route.

Shopping online is such a traumatic experience when dealing with beauty purchases abroad since sellers are legendary for jacking prices up to crazy heights.

Solution?

DHC.

DHC is a Japanese manufacturer of cosmetics, healthy food supplements, apparel, etc….however here in the US we only get the cosmetic and skincare side of DHC which is fine by me as I’m all about the beauty!

DHC offers an easy, fairly inexpensive way to get high quality Japanese skincare easily!

Chose from various lotions and potions to address any need such as oily skin, anti-aging, and more! Snag yourself a bottle of DHC’s cult favorite Deep Cleansing Oil or grab some sheet masks. Cleansing Oil and Sheet Masks aren’t something you commonly see from US brands so both can be a novel experience to try out for the first time or to stock up on if you already love and use these items!

From haircare to skincare and even body care, DHC covers a wide range of products for your beauty needs.

So do you DHC?

Have any favorite products from the brand?

If not, I do suggest you explore the site, you might be surprised at how many great offerings they have!

I look forward to hearing thoughts from the seasoned DHC user!

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review, Photos

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil 1

Ok, let me it be know I have no issues with mineral oil but some folks do. It’s difficult finding a cleansing oil without mineral oil as one of the ingredients and the most commonly asked question I get about any cleansing oil I review is, “Does it contain mineral oil?”

Second most commonly asked question, “Any cheap cleansing oil recommendations that are easy to find in the US?” Although cleansing oil is a common part of the Asian beauty regime it’s not something that’s quite caught on in the US in my opinion. Hell, if it did, we’d all go to the drugstore and have our pick of any number of cleansing oils just like any good Asian woman can at their local drugstore in Japan, Korea, etc….it’s simply not the case in the US in my opinion. Some brands do have cleansing oil available however you probably didn’t even know they had one. MAC has one, surprised? I think we commonly associate cleansing oil with Shu Uemura and ouch expensive.

Want cheap?

Want readily available?

Want something to easily clean away makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara?

Want it without mineral oil?

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the ticket.

Made without mineral oil, allowing for a deep clean, and readily available for purchase plus an inexpensive price tag keeps this cleansing oil at the top of the awesome pile.

Scared of cleansing oil? Weird idea isn’t it? Taking oil and proceeding to rub it on your face…well it could prove a great idea for those of us with dry skin but even than it sounds a tad on the strange side…wouldn’t your face feel oily and greasy after use?

No way. Cleansing Oil rinses clean away and allows even the most stubborn, I’m sticking around until you die makeup to be removed easily!

DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil Review

I’m thinking we should celebrate. You know, balloons, chips, dips, loud music, the whole deal. Why are we celebrating? Because the Gods above have granted us the ability to purchase DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil. I swear I heard angels sing when I noticed that DHC was actually carrying a product that hit Japan several months ago.

If you’re a DHC lover and a little or alot knowledgeable about DHC US versus DHC Asia, you’ve probably long since realized we get the boring packaging. DHC such a great brand but the packaging is so damn generic. Japan gets alot of great packaging plus some really cool collections such as the DHC Fruit Collection and the DHC Rose Collection.

This a break through people!

PINK DHC packaging….this is news. Call the papers, alert the President!

Ok but seriously. This really is kinda cool because I’m a package junkie and I really like good looking packaging. It’s pretty important to me in the scheme of my beauty purchases. DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil is the first of it’s kind to make it’s way to US shores. It’s really a break through for the brand because as I mentioned for the most part the packaging is pretty standard and dare I say boring in some aspects. Needless to say they make incredible products but why is the kawaii packaging reserved for Asia? No fairs!

Anyway.

Now that you heard my ramble about how sweet the packaging is have a little jump to hear about how well DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil performs.
