We all know that K-beauty and J-beauty are hot, but after a recent trip to Japan, I fell even more in love with the skincare, makeup, body and haircare out there. With its own set of brands we rarely see over here, and its dedicated community of skincare fans, there is something very special about the Japan's beauty culture. And luckily for us, there are places to buy certain Japanese products over here, and we are seeing brands from the area increasingly travelling over to our side of the world. These J-beauty brands you can buy in the UK are a great place to start if you are interested in the world of Japanese beauty.
The best places to begin if you want to delve into Japanese beauty brands are undoubtedly Amazon, as well as specific, targeted online retailers like YesStyle. These sites both stock a number of popular Japanese brands, and offer an impressive range of products from most of them. Unsurprisingly, you may find yourself having to pay more for some bits, as well as a hefty shipping charge from time to time. But if you're really dedicated, you can make it happen.
Other brands, such as two I've mentioned below, are already available in their entirety in the UK, or are soon to make their way over, making it easier than ever to get your hands on them.
