31 of the Most Popular, Satisfying, and Downright Weird Asian Beauty Products on Amazon
30 October 2018
When it comes to beauty products, you've got plenty of options. You could literally spend days of your life scrolling through all of the beauty products that Amazon has to offer (not to mention all the time you could spend in your local makeup boutique!). But rather than just picking up the same old BB cream, face mask, or acne treatment, I recommend trying something totally new every once in a while. Not only might you discover a brand new product that becomes your "holy grail;" it's also just fun to try new things every now and again.
That's where Asian beauty products come in. Over the past couple of years, there's been a huge increase in the popularity of beauty items from Asian countries — and for good reason! People totally swear by them, and many of them are super fun to use and adorably packaged as well. From an exercise tool you can use to slim your face to a moisturizer made from snail slime (yes, really), you're sure to find something that you like!
via: AmazonWe all love a good face mask, right? Well, this is one of ’em. Spread it on your face and it just looks like gray mud. But after a few minutes, the mask will have transformed into thousands of teeny tiny bubbles all over your face! The bubbles give your face a gentle massage while the clay mud and charcoal powder remove makeup, dirt, and oils while also tightening your pores. You can also take some pretty amazing bubble selfies while you’re wearing it.
via: Amazon/ Mayra10031All you have to do is apply this mask to your skin and let it dry (it takes between 15 and 25 minutes). Once it's dry, carefully peel it off your face...along with any gross gunk that's been hanging out in your pores. It kind of hurts...and it's kind of disgusting, but it's totally addicting all the same. People seriously swear by this stuff; it has nearly 3,000 Amazon reviews!
via: Amazon/LWChances are you’ve either used one of these full-face masks yourself or seen people use them on YouTube or Instagram. Apparently, they make your skin feel more healthy and elastic, while also working to clear blemishes. This listing is for a pack of 16 different masks, all of which contain Vitamin E and collagen to keep your skin looking young and fresh.
via: AmazonWouldn’t you agree? Use it to keep your hair out of your way while washing your face or putting on makeup. You could also put it on straight out of the shower to keep your hair from getting unruly as it air dries. You could also put it on whenever you feel like having adorable kitty ears. That’s what I would do.
via: AmazonRemember back when you were a kid and you used to cover your hand with Elmer’s glue just so you could peel it off. First of all, have you ever thought about how that’s kind of weird? Kids are so strange. Secondly, did you know you can do pretty much the same thing as an adult? After this hand mask dries, you gently peel it off to reveal ultra-smooth and hydrated skin!
via: AmazonIf you're still looking for the perfect eyebrow pencil, consider giving this one a try! Use it to fill in your eyebrows and give them a fuller, bolder look without looking ridiculous and totally drawn-on. It applies super smoothly without caking and delivers a completely natural looking brow with just a few strokes.
via: AmazonThese jelly flower lipsticks are clear and have a beautiful flower actually embedded within them — major points awarded for being the prettiest lipsticks we've ever seen! But that's not the only impressive thing! The lipsticks respond to the temperature and pH level of your lips and create a unique color for every person who uses them. It's basically magic. And it's totally gorgeous. And this is a three pack. Seriously, why haven't you ordered it yet?
via: AmazonApply this mask, let it dry, then gently peel it from your face. It leaves your face feeling deeply cleansed by removing stubborn impurities and dead skin cells. Using it even twice a week can have drastic effects on your skin, so get ready to see some results! You might just be appalled by what comes out of your pores — and relieved by the fact that it's finally out of there!
via: AmazonThis foamy face wash regulates excess sebum, eliminates impurities that clog your pores, tightens pores (while minimizing their appearance), and eradicates skin bacteria. Reviewers say it feels like velvet on your skin, which just sounds absolutely divine. Plus it just looks so fluffy and delicious, doesn't it? Honestly, I would probably rub it on my face even without all of the cleansing benefits.
via: Amazon/AnetaEach packet looks a lot like one of those coffee creamers you get at diners, but it's really nothing of the sort. When it comes time to wash your face, all you do is dump the powder into your hand and add a little bit of water. Massage the mixture onto your face and it creates a creamy cleansing foam! Is that magical or what? Whether you travel a lot or just enjoy the novelty of tiny packaged items, this stuff is way too cool not to include on the list.
via: AmazonYep, you read that correctly! Apparently, mucin (which is found in snail secretions) helps to repair damaged skin and make it clearer and more smooth. It absorbs quickly into the skin and keeps your face feeling amazing. The gel also includes centella, portalaca, and green tea extract to prevent skin problems, and adenosine which reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
via: AmazonThis tool features two different cleansing brushes. One one side, the silicone "nubs" are very small and close together, which is great for gentle cleansing and a relaxing massage. The other side of the brush has larger silicone bristles for an even deeper — yet still very gentle — clean. There's also a built-in cavity where you can put your cleanser in order to use the tool for applying it. Rinse it off and let it dry, and it's ready to use the next day! Since it's made from silicone, it won't harbor harmful bacteria.
via: AmazonThey fit perfectly on your fingertips and can be used to remove dead skin cells from your face. They may be slightly odd, but you’ve got to admit it’d be fun to put them on your fingers! Use them to scrub your face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while also smoothing away any roughness. They gently remove dead skin cells without damaging the baby soft skin beneath them.
via: Amazon/LayawinWe all know the importance of working up a good lather for your face wash — this little tool does that for you! Simply add a small dot of cleanser to the inside of the marshmallow whip maker, add a little bit of water, and pump the want up and down a few times. It creates teeny tiny microbubbles in your face wash that won't tug on your skin when you use it. It's perfect for anyone with sensitive skin (as well as anyone who just wants to have a little more fun with their face wash).
via: Amazon/Shaida EhlertThis super soft sponge gently exfoliates your face to give you a radiant glow. It has activated bamboo charcoal actually embedded within it. The charcoal cleanses pores, removes excess oil, and fights bacteria, leaving you with smoother, silkier skin. The sponge itself is actually made from the root of the Konjac plant — it's chemical free and naturally pH-balanced.
via: AmazonIt contains lemon extract, carbonated water, and green tea extract which work together to leave your skin feeling absolutely lovely. It gently exfoliates and removes dead skin cells from your face while also removing dirt and grime from your pores and adding some elasticity back to your skin. The citric acid from the lemon naturally nourishes and brightens skin, too.
via: AmazonYou may already use aloe vera to alleviate sunburn pain, but as it turns out, it also makes for a pretty bomb facial moisturizer! This stuff is easily absorbed into the face and doesn't leave behind any sticky residue. It can calm facial redness and leaves you feeling totally refreshed and relaxed. They've already sold 30 million units of the stuff, so clearly, it has its dedicated fans. Maybe you're about to become one of them!
via: AmazonTonymoly is one of the leading brands in Korean beauty products and if this lip tint is any indicator of their level of quality, it's easy to see why. This stuff stays put all day, even through eating and drinking. It also smells delicious when you put it on, which is just a bonus. As soon as you apply it to your lips, it dries quickly to a sheer, matte finish. Plus, it has ingredients like rosehip oil, argan oil, and jojoba seed oil that moisturize and promote elasticity to keep your lips looking fresh AF.
via: AmazonIt absorbs excess oil from your skin, leaving you with a healthy peaches and cream complexion. Just apply a small amount of the powder on the places where you get the most oil build-up, and it will do all the work for you! You can put your foundation on right over it, too. It is available in both a loose powder and compact form!
via: AmazonIt's formulated with royal jelly extract to moisturize, PCA to strengthen, and Lipidure extract to repair. You apply it to clean hair right after shampooing in the shower. Let it sit for about five minutes, rinse it off, and get ready to be amazed by how healthy, strong, and shiny your hair looks. You can also apply it just to the ends of your hair and use it as a leave-in conditioner.
via: AmazonUsually reserved as part of a $300 spa treatment, you can now bring this volcanic mud treatment right to your home. The mud is made from volcanic clay which, honestly, is reason enough to get it immediately in my book. It also has the antioxidant qualities of green tea. The mask improves your skin's texture, evens tone, and reduces the appearance of pores. Plus it gives you the opportunity to play with mud as an adult.
via: AmazonEach package is split into three separate steps. The first nose strip cleanses. The second is a peel-off strip to remove impurities and sebaceous filaments. And the third and final strip acts as a moisturizer to make sure you're not left with any redness in the area. Sounds like the perfect thing to bring out during your next at-home spa day! This listing is for a set of five, so you could even have a bunch of friends over and all do the steps together!
via: AmazonYour poor feet go through so much in an average day; why not give them a little bit of relief once you get home? These foot pads are infused with bamboo vinegar, along with other ingredients such as Vitamin C, vegetable fiber, and tourmaline. All you have to do is clean your feet and position one of these patches on each foot. You can sleep with them on and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on a brand new day.
via: AmazonIf you have short hair, you know how amazing a good hair wax can be — and this, my friends, is a very good hair wax! It has excellent holding power and will keep hair spiked and perfectly in place. A very small amount goes a long way — this container will seriously last you for a good long while. It doesn't add any shine to your hair, nor will it flake and make your hair look super dry.
via: AmazonMost sunscreens take forever to actually rub in and absorb into your skin, plus you're often left with a white sheen on your skin that can be annoying. Not with this stuff! Its "watery essence" absorbs into your skin almost instantaneously while still providing tons of protection from the sun. It's super waterproof, too — you can wear it in the water for up to 80 minutes!
via: AmazonIf you've already discovered the magic of BB cream, then you don't need me to tell you that it's pretty amazing. This stuff acts as a primer for your BB cream, enhancing its effectiveness for better adherence and long-lasting wear. It helps keep you moisturized even with a full face of makeup. It also has wrinkle-repairing and dark-spot correcting ingredients in it. And if you're still looking for a good BB cream...
via: AmazonI wasn't kidding when I said BB cream is amazing. It basically makes your face the perfect canvas for applying makeup. This stuff covers any blemishes you don't want peeking through your foundation and leaves your skin looking flawless. It also contains rosemary and chamomile extracts to soothe your skin. And it has built-in UV protection! In other words, it pretty much does everthing.
via: AmazonThis special foot exfoliating mask is designed to get rid of coarse, dull, and dead skin and leave you with smooth, baby-soft feet... but it's gonna be a bit of a journey to get there. All you have to do is wash your feet, then put the booties on under a pair of socks. Leave them on for about an hour, then remove them and wash your feet again. After a few days, your dead skin will start peeling off your foot — and it will be a lot of dead skin (seriously, look at the photos on the Amazon page. If you dare.).
