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!

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Cream Review

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Cream 1

Today I close off my Sana Hadaomy Skincare Collection reviews with the most important product in the trio, the cream! I’ve already reviewed the mist and toner which should be used prior to the cream which I’ll tell you about today.

I’ve been using the three pieces as my AM skincare for the past few months and I have to say I really have enjoyed the run with it. I have no other skin products that need testing at the moment so I’ll continue on with this since it works out so well for me.

Let’s have a look!

Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash Review, Photos

Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash 3

Excuse me why I’ll rant at Biore for never releasing the cool stuff here in the US.

Biore WTH why can’t we have cool cleansers that are called Marshmallow Whip Face Wash? Not cool! We want these things too!

I happen to be a die hard fan of Kose Airy Whip, it was kinda my first introduction into the world of whippy, foamy, fluffy cleansers! I used to buy it by the case load and pimp it out on Musings and to my friends as an essential, must have quickie facial cleanser. Seriously, ask my friends, they’ll agree that they are tired hearing about Airy Whip.

Sorry, it’s just cool stuff.

Anything that looks like whipped cream in a can that can be used as a cleanser is the awesome to me. I’m easily excited about skincare.

That’s why Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash is so exciting, shhh, it’s actually taken the place of Airy Whip but DON’T mention that to Airy Whip as we’ve been friends for years and years, don’t wanna hurt its feelings eh? But seriously foaming plus a name with marshmallow in it?

Yes please!

Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream Review, Photos, Swatches

Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream 1

Rohto, creator of all things in the eye drop arena. Not a fond fan of eye drops myself to be honest, too squeamish to have anything liquid-y hanging out around my eye area. It’s one thing to take a shower, take a swim, or get caught in the rain but it’s entirely another to voluntarily tip your head back and proceed to have drops of liquid poured into your eyes, yeah, not cool!

Rohto’s Japanese branch also has a collections of lotions and potions one of which is the new Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream. Me being all about good moisture for that pesky dry area under my eyes was all about trying this out.

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Lotion Review, Swatches, Photos

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Lotion 1

This is kinda my little follow up review to the Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist I recently reviewed for you. The Hadanomy Collection features a mist, lotion (toner), and moisturizer. Today I have the Sana Hadanomy Collagen Lotion to share with you! Asian skincare commonly refers to toner as lotion so don’t get too confuddled here as this is indeed a Toner not a Lotion as per the name.
