My Must Have Miracle Beauty Products Popular in Japan

Japan is well known for innovation. Whether it be in fashion or gadgetry or beauty products. There are products available in Japan and hugely popular that are practically unheard of over here. Today I'm going to look at 2 products that you need to add to your beauty routine.

First up is a product called BB Cream (Blemish Balm).

I use this myself as a base for my foundation but for those of you with lighter skin you can wear it instead of foundation. In a way its like tinted moisturiser but it gives perfect coverage and unlike foundation it leaves your pores unclogged. Hides all blemishes, pigmentation, discolouration and spots. It also works as a very expensive moisturiser  - softening, refining and smoothing the skins surface. On top of all this its anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, provides UV protection and in some varities it has whitening properties. And its very long lasting you have to remove it by washing your face so you can wear it all day without it budging.

Next up is Fiberwig. Its false eyelashes in a tube. You apply it like mascara and it drastically lengthens your lashes (like wearing falsies). It really is a fabulous product. Western make up brands are forever releasing lash building products but none of them can compare with this wonder product

You can find both these products at

If you try them let me know what you thought :)


  1. I'm pretty sure BB cream is a Korean invention...?

    I've tried Fiberwig before, that stuff is actually GENIUS. You can see the little fibers in it that attach onto the ends of your lashes to make them longer~ love them

  2. i know lol thats why i said popular in japan. none of the western brand mascaras even come close to fiberwig. i loves it :)

  3. I am orderring the fiberwig right now!!!
    Thank you so much for sharing this! I've tried every kind of mascara with fabulous effect promises that turned out to be desappointement!
    But what is it exactly?!


  4. Teehee, I use both.

    I've gotten a hold of some Skin 79 VIP Gold BB cream this summer and I love it. I know BB creams are generally light coverage to none, but this is one that has a pretty good coverage.

    At the same time I also got some fibrewig mascara and I love it because it's the only mascara I've tried that doesn't smudge on me (it even put up through walking in the rain). Fibrewig can be found in Sephora too I think.

  5. it basically adds little fibers to your lashes to make them longer xx

  6. This is such an interesting post. I've heard about the BB cream but didn't know all about it and the mascara is quite amazing!
    I like this kind of innovative Japanese products.

    Also like your blog too ^^
    so I'm following trough bloglovin!

  7. I used fiberwig, it lengthens a little bit, its not like falsies though =.= (I WISH!) But you can see the small fibers which is cool and its really easy to wash the mascara away with hot water indeed ;) It's quite pricey though..
