If you’re looking for the best Japanese skincare products for this winter season, you’ve come to the right place! 

As cooler temperatures approach mixed with dry air, winds, and constant exposure to indoor heaters, your skin takes a hit.  These conditions can suck the moisture from your skin and strip it of oils needed for healthy skin barrier function.  J-beauty skincare products are made with winter skin in mind.

Winters in Tokyo are very cold, sunny and dry.  Because of their weather, J-beauty has some of the most hydrating and nourishing skincare products.  So, if you’re still searching for that must have winter skin essential, look no further, here’s the top 5 Japanese skincare for winter!

Hadalabo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist

There’s no wondering why it’s been voted the number 1 Face Lotion for 12 Years in Japan!  Hadalabo is by far one of the most hydrating products for winter.  It’s made with 3 types of hyaluronic acid and it’s almost like a serum with this semi-thick consistency to prep and add in moisture after cleansing the skin.  This toner is suitable for all skin times and ages and contains no fragrance, no colors, no alcohol and no oil!

Melano CC Intensive Spot Correcting Serum

Vitamin C is an ingredient that can used all year long and Melano CC Intensive VitC serum is one you will want to have and use all year long.  The miracle intensive serum that works on acne marks and dark spots, is why so many Japanese women rave about it and buys it again and again, because it works!  Not only does it help your skin become less prone to acne, it also helps reduce acne marks and spots, and keep your skin smooth while helping with collagen production.

Let’s not forget to mention how innovative this product is on the outside!  The packaging was designed to keep the serum fresh (try squeezing the product, only a few drops will come out at a time - why? Air sealed tight!). The texture is light and easy to absorb!

Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Do you know what is the most loved exfoliator for 15 Years in Japan? Yup this Japanese skincare product is sold every 4.5 seconds!

The CULT exfoliator is suitable all skin types including sensitive skin.  There’s no need to peel or scrub your skin to exfoliate and free of fragrance, color, and preservative…oh yes!  Cure Natural Aqua Get feels so light and gentle on the skin and yet leaves your skin so clean and smooth!

Chidoriya Yuzu Seed Cleansing Balm

Rich with nourishing and aromatic ingredients, Chidoriya Yuzu Seed Cleansing Balm will make your skin soft and supple. This melting balm liquefies at body temperature to remove dirt and impurities from the day, even your waterproof makeup!  We love using a warm wash cloth to wipe it off. 

Minon Moist Charge Moisturizer

We know hydration is key to good skin days and this winter you will want to opt in for a moisturizer that provides more moisture.   This lightweight highly moisturizing Japanese facial moisturizer is formulated with 9 essential amino acids that seeps into the stratum corneum to protect your skin barrier and prevent moisture loss.  It spreads and absorbs easily to hydrate your skin and It boasts a rich texture without any stickiness.

It’s free of mineral oils, paraben, alcohol and fragrance.  Minon Amino Moist Charge Milk is suitable for all skin types and recommended for dry and sensitive skin.
