A friend of mine who recently moved to Japan asked me for a skincare recommendation. Japanese cosmetics can be pretty bewildering and until you have the confidence to try a couple for yourself it can be hard to pick a brand from the thousands that clutter the shops.
My absolute favorite has to be Dr Ci Labo the number 1 medicated cosmetic range in Japan
Best thing for tourists and foreigners is that the name of the product/description is written in English on the package so you can be pretty sure of what you are buying. This brand is available in virtually every cosmetic shop in Japan, is not too expensive and is without a doubt the perfect match for my skin. So until you have found your feet a great place to start your foray into cosmetics has to be Dr Ci Labo.
