Here are 10 Japanese beauty brands you can snap up in Singapore.  


One of the most well-known J-beauty brands, Shiseido has it all: makeup, skincare — you name it.  The brand upholds the idea of natural and traditional beauty methods mixed with innovation fit for the evolving beauty scene. Find them in 22 major outlets all over Singapore. 

shu uemura

shu uemura is a brand that challenges creativity. It promises high-quality and top-notch performance that's specifically associated with Japanese artistry. Visit any of their seven stores in Singapore to grab its many cult favourite products. 


THREE is another Japanese beauty brand that's worth your attention. Available in TANGS and Takashimaya, this brand promises a science-backed approach to skincare rooted in many Japanese traditional practices. P.S. We're totally obsessed with the minimalist packaging!


You don't need to visit Japan's many beauty aisles to take home this brand's gorgeous makeup selection.

Jill Stuart

If you love Japan's kawaii (cute) culture, Jill Stuart will definitely fix you up. It gives you a dose of daintiness 10 times over with its stunning packaging and J-beauty-focused take on makeup — that's natural and youthful. Shop the brand through Sephora Singapore. But first, check out our review of several products from the brand here.


Kenzoki products

Japanese sunscreens are on a different level simply because Japan takes sun protection seriously (as we all should).

Located in five stores within +65, SK-II products including the bestselling Facial Treatment Essence can easily be a part of your routine, no immigration checks required.  

Kose Cosmeport

Kose Cosmeport is one J-beauty brand that dominates most Japanese drugstores and beauty outlets thanks to its wide range of product lines, fit for different budgets. In Singapore, this brand's skincare and bodycare products are available at Watsons


FANCL is another Japanese beauty brand available in Singapore that you should not skip out on. Many travellers used to go to Japan to take home the brand's bestselling Mild Cleansing Oil and Facial Cleansing Powder but luckily for Singaporeans, six FANCL branches exist in the country.
