Ahhhhhh, Japan—the land of sushi, Gudetama, and women who don't seem to age. Want to know how they keep their beauty game on point? Here are some products that they swear by:
Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder
These cute little pods may be enough to arouse your curiosity, but the Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder is more than just that. The enzyme powder cleanser removes excess sebum and dead skin without stripping off the skin's moisture. Tip: Take these with you when you're traveling!

Dolly Wink Eyelashes

Do you still skip SPF protection on a daily basis because you hate how heavy and sticky it can be? It's probably only a matter of choosing a lightweight sunscreen, like this cult product from Bioré.
