DH is off on a work trip to Japan & Korea soon. What skincare should I be asking him to bring back? I'm early 40s with normal-ish skin. Thanks

Watching with interest - I'm in a similar position with my DH, though only S Korea bit, and it seems too good an opportunity to miss.

I would avoid it all- skin whitening products cant be good for your skin.

hmm it's not all skin whitening
I would have a google of best Korean products and see what pops up
I like etude house face blur primer, hera cushion for makeup, biore watery essence

You can get a lot of Japanese brands of skin care on Amazon these days, which takes the fun out of buying things while there. That said, I would highly recommend the sheet masks which are available in a greater variety in Japan versus Amazon. I bought one of each of the kracie brand five packs and some of the daily sheets which are in packs of 30. People rave about the mascaras there but I wasn't too bowled over. Also love perfect whip facewash (but I like foamy face washes). All of these things can be bought from normal drugstores rather than department stores.
