New in Japanese Beauty: Anessa, Momo Puri and Saborino

These drugstore favorites are finally in the country



There’s no doubt that Japan is a beauty mecca; no trip is ever complete without scouring through their never-ending drugstores. Tokyo, the cosmopolitan capital, is a must-visit for anything beauty. The Japanese people’s thrust on minimalist beauty—skincare to be specific—has permeated through the lives of beauty enthusiasts all over the world.  


J-Beauty brands like Bioré and Hada Labo are becoming readily available in our neighborhood drugstores, and it seems like more cult favorite brands are following suit. There’s no more need to hoard or pasabuy; your favorite and Cosme-approved products are finally here in the Philippines!

Japan’s #1 sunscreen for 19 years straight has finally reached our shores! Anessa’s cult products, the Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk (best for oily to combination skin) and Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel (best for normal to dry skin), are here to stay. The ultimate beauty sunscreen—the result of 100 years of Shiseido’s research and development on UV protection—is formulated with Triple Defense Technology, which withstands sweat, water and heat.  


Hate the feeling of greasy sunscreen and the look of whitecast? This formula is lightweight, non-sticky and doesn’t look like anything on skin. Product nourishes skin while providing broad-spectrum UV protection to prevent early signs of aging. And yes, even if you’re stuck at home, applying sunscreen is a must!

Formulated with Lactobacillus Blend and Peach Ceramide Water, skin feels youthful and firm after every use!
