6 Japanese Beauty Secrets You'll Want to Start Using Immediately

Japan is a treasure trove of unique beauty products and experiences. We have them to thank for the massive popularity of cleansing oils, and they produce some of the best sunscreens on the market. Without a doubt, they also have some bizarre products, too, like eye drops that sting (but produce the whitest eyes of all time), plus lip and brow tattoos. But here’s the thing: they actually work and look great, too.

One popular item in Japan is facial essence . To us, it looks like a toner with its watery consistency.

Apply four to five drops of it on your palm and press into your skin. Then apply your favorite moisturizer.
