The Best Japanese SPF and 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!

Hydrating Facial Mists Recommendations

I happen to be a complete facial mist junkie and I’m pretty sure Lady Cassandra is one too. I admit I do imitate Cassandra’s British accent and mutter a haughty “Moisturize me, Moisturize Me!” as I spritz myself with my favorite facial mist. What I’m easily amused, sue me.

Facial mists come and go through my life like my very favorite JuJu Cosmetics White Peach Skin Whitening Mist which I have to restock up on soon! But for the most part I come back to two very important facial mists again and again and again because they never fail me.
