Who doesn’t love Japanese cosmetics? In fact, some of the most beloved beauty brands worldwide are Japanese – SK-II, Shiseido, Kose, and the list goes on…

It’s a fact that Japanese products are known to be of high-quality. And even if they’re pricier than Korean or Western brands, they’re usually worth the penny.

(Side note: I’ve found that Japanese brands work better for my skin, while Korean brands usually cause breakouts on my skin, unfortunately… Which is why I avoid using the latter as much as possible.)

Thankfully for me, there’s a new Japanese beauty store in Bangkok – a.k.a Matsumoto Kiyoshi – which sells both popular and lesser-known Japanese brands. So the next time you go shopping in Bangkok, remember to drop by. Who knows… You might find your next favourite product here. 😉

1. Who wants smoother and fairer skin? ME! – MINON Amino Moist’s Whitening Milk Mask (580 baht)

With all the pollution in Bangkok (or haze in SG/MY), having dull skin is a problem many women face. MINON Amino Moist’s Whitening Milk Mask solves this by making your skin brighter and smoother without irritating it (it’s safe for sensitive skin too!).

2. Easy liquid eyeshadow (that makes your eyes stand out) – Canmake Wink Glow Eyes (320 baht)

My friend really loves this, and prefers to bring a tube of this in her makeup bag when she travels, as opposed to bringing chunky eyeshadow palettes around. It’s super easy to apply too. Simply squeeze a tiny blob onto your ring finger, and gently swipe it over your lids for beautiful eyes that “shine”.

3. No more hateful ingrown toe nails!!!!!!!!! – Makiduke Gel Tect (552 baht)

Ingrown nails are super painful (AND extremely hateful). If you’re looking for a solution to those ingrown nails, try this Japanese invention! It can provide enough “padding” for your nails so that it lifts your ingrown nails off of your skin.

PS: There are 2 sheets in each pack, so buy more if you often have ingrown nails.

4. We love a good peel-off lippie! – CHEZMOI Puru Lip Pack Color (Juicy Red) (542 baht)

From eyebrows to lip stains, you can now have your lips red the entire day with this peel-off lip pack. How to use it? Just apply it like a lipstick and peel it off when it dries. You’ll then have pretty lips all day. Isn’t it amazing?!

5. We love big butts and we cannot lie – Slim Walk Pants (from 990 baht)

No need for butt implants or fat transfers. And saggy butts? Please. The Japanese have invented these pants that lift and firm your butt. Hello, beautiful peaches, here we come! 😍🤣

6. Have feet that’s smooth as a baby’s – Sosu Foot Peeling Pack (350 baht)

This isn’t something particularly new/inventive. But it works! Open up this sock-like pack, and wear it for 1 to 1.5 hours and wash it off afterwards. And after a few days (of dead skin peeling right off), you’ll get new feet as smooth as a baby’s (bye bye dead skin!).

7. No need to buy Crest Whitening Strips when you can buy – Z.A.P’s Teeth whitening mask (690 baht)

Teeth whitening is all the rage these days, and if you’re at Siam Square, you might as well try these! There are 7 sets in one pack (to be used for 7 days) so remember to use them routinely for 7-days straight for whiter teeth!

8. A scrub that’s specifically for your butt and hips – Pelican Peach Hip Care Soap (280 baht)

This soap scrub is super simple to use – just rub it on your hips and butt to exfoliate, smoothen and brighten the skin around this delicate area. (If you’ve been working on your butt with them squats, you might as well give this part of your body some extra lovin’.)

9. Make your teeth white again using a cotton bud…??? – Toothshine, Cojit Tooth Stick (from 199 baht)

Nope, it’s not the usual cotton bud for your ears (although it looks like one). Instead, it’s for your teeth! Swab them tooth-by-tooth to whiten each tooth. Simple right?

10. Bye-bye monthly trips to the nail salon – Dashing Diva Magic Press (360 baht)

One thing that worries me about my monthly gel mani-pedis, is the UV rays that I’m exposing the skin on my hands and feet to (since UV light is used to dry and harden/cure the gel polish). If people can get skin cancer from tanning beds, how about the UV rays from gel manicures?

Currently, there’s not enough research/statistics to provide more information on this, BUT, if you share my worries… you can consider using press-on nails instead!

PS: For longer-lasting nails, have your real nails the same length as the “fake nail” before sticking them on.

11. Tried this 2-in-1 sunscreen and primer yet? – CANMAKE Mermaid Skin Gel UV (300 baht)

Yesssss, sunscreen and primer in 1 product. That’s really convenient! This UV lotion works as a sunscreen and primer, allowing your makeup to last the entire day while protecting your skin from getting burned. Plus, it makes your skin feel moist and cool too!

12. Moisturise your skin with this oil-based (with royal jelly) cream – Club BISHIN cream x Little Twin Stars (390 baht)

An old formula (from the Meiji period) placed in cute packaging, enjoy smooth and supple skin with Little Twin Stars!! We luvvv.

13. Who loves a good blackhead mask? – Materie’s Peel-off Gel Mask Pack (459 baht)

It’s our favourite blackhead treatment that pulls out everything from blackheads to whiteheads and other impurities on your skin!

Note: Not for very sensitive skin.

14. Did you know that your eyelashes could do with some nutrients too?! – Angfa’s SCALP D BEAUTE Pure Free Eyelash Serum & Eyeliner (699 baht)

To help them grow beautifully and strongly, use these eyelash serums with nutrients and none of those dangerous ingredients (this one uses no silicone, oil, alcohol, parabens, etc). This also has a curl tip so you can apply the serum equally, from the root to the end of your lashes.

PS: Angfa sells pretty good eyeliners too, in case you’re looking for a new eyeliner to try!

15. God bless makeup removal wipes…  – Makeup Removal Sheets (from 149 baht)

If you’re one of those who go nuts for those makeup wipes from Daiso, you should probably give these a go. And Hello Kitty-themed makeup removal wipes? How cute!

16. Wash your face squeaky clean, down to its pores! – Deve Face Wash (159 baht)

Finding the right facial wash is a hit or miss, especially if you have acne-prone skin like mine. Thankfully, this soap is safe for acne-prone, sensitive and oily skin AND still makes your skin feel clean and soft.
