Don Don Donki can get quite overwhelming on your first visit, but if you’re looking for beauty products, we’ve got you covered.
Moca Fuwa Face Wash Brush, $19.90
We’ve seen similar brushed for almost $70 and this is a steal compared to it. The idea is that this brush creates tiny bubbles to form a rich foam for a more thorough cleanse. Fine bristle of this face-washing brush also gives skin and pores a deeper clean.
Miracle Romance Multi Carry Balm Sailormoon, $21.50
We were quite sad to find that the Sailormoon version of this balm is sold out, but if you’re fans of Sailor Mars or Sailor Mercury, these are still up for grabs.
Lishan Horse Oil Face Mask, $24.90 (38 pcs)
If you haven’t given horse oil products a try, this mask is the perfect start. Horse oil is high in linolenic acid, which have good anti-inflammatory properties and help repair and maintain skin’s moisture barrier. At $24.90 for 38 pieces, you can use one every day.
Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder, $27
The Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder is one of the most popular drugstore cleansing powders in Japan. It deep cleanses, exfoliates and controls excess sebum. Plus points for being individually packed so you can bring them on your carry-on bag easily.
Joange Hair Colour Treatment, $26.90
For those who are in between hair colouring and see their hair turning brassy, you can give the Joange Hair Colour Treatment a try.
Ice Breeze Cool Lotion, $9.90
For really hot days, the Ice Breeze Cool Lotion will be a relief for your skin. We reckon it’ll contain some sort of mint so if you have sensitive skin or freshly waxed/shaven legs, you should steer clear of it.
Hokkaido Beautiful Skin Peeling Gel, $29.90
Peeling gels are the best at removing dead keratin from your skin, especially if you dislike the physical scrubs. This one is pretty affordable at $29.90!
Cleardent Stain Cleaner, $5.50
Stain removers are really popular in Japanese drugstores and if you are a heavy smoker or coffee/tea drinker, this is useful to keep in your bag for a quick cleanup before an interview, big meeting or hot date.
Ajuste UV Gudetama UV Spray, $40
We can’t stress the importance of sun protection enough and this giant can of spray-on sunscreen is perfect to pack along on a beach holiday. Plus points for the Gudetama version.
Style Me Fishbone Maker, $13.90
If you’re hopeless at creating braids, there’s a tool that could actually help. Details on how to use this is on the packaging, which seems pretty easy to follow if you ask us!
