Vacation Destinations in Asia For The Beauty- Obsessed


One of my travel goals is to discover the best beauty shopping spots in every country I've been to. I've been around mostly in Asia and I must say, this part of the world is a melting pot of beauty products! From Japanese drugstores, Thai beauty boutiques, and to Sephora, see the top 5 vacation destinations in Asia for beauty obsessed ladies like me!

1. SINGAPORE

Next to Malaysia, Singapore is the next Asian destination with the nearest Sephora boutique. Sephora is like Mt. Olympus to makeup lovers and if you're one, you should make a pilgrimage at least once to this divine land of beauty products.

2. SOUTH KOREA

I haven't been to South Korea, but soon enough I will! My mom has visited this country about twice already and she said that it's a haven for makeup and skin care products; also, if you love freebies, samples, and GWPs, she said Myeong-Dong is the place to be because SAs from various beauty shops will just keep on handing you free masks, samples, and whatnots! 

3. JAPAN

Ah, one of my favorite cities in Asia! Japan is literally known as one of the makeup havens on this side of the world because the Japanese really love makeups! Also, if you're looking forward to discovering the best eyeliners and mascaras ever made, this is the place to be; the Japanese are fans of these makeups and they take these seriously!

4. HONG KONG

Asia's shopping capital should definitely be part of this list! Three words: Sasa and Bonjour; enough said!

5. THAILAND

Thailand is a leading country too when it comes to not only beauty products, but professional yet affordable beauty procedures too. Boots is the leading drugstore in Bangkok; don't forget to check out the local aromatherapy brands as well; Thailand has some of the best beauty wellness products I have tried!

  1. Japan is a matte makeup heaven. May I add Thailand is also obsessed with whitening products (anyway, I don't care I'm more worried with my pores).

  6. I haven't been to South Korea but I have a load of information about it (I'm a k-beauty and k-pop fan here). Yes, they are all about freebies like LOAD OF FREEBIES. I've watched a lot of vlogs there and even if you only buy like a 20 dollar worth of product they'll give you back a 10 dollar worth of freebies. Actually, even if you only walk inside the shop sometimes they'll give you one. This is the actual reason why I really wanna go there. I might as well bring a light luggage and go home with a heavy one full of cosmetics / skin care productsand k-pop merch too of course.

  8. I've been to Thailand and Singapore, and my girlfriend had to drag me out because I was panic-buying like a crazed animal. Hahaha.

  10. Yay! I've been to those countries! I love myeongdong and yes they give samples and it's a stretch of street full of makeup stores! You can see Shiseido products in most of pharmacy stores in Japan and it's hella way cheaper than here in Manila. Their beauty products are of high quality as well which i really really love! But my favorite duty free store is the one in HK and Singapore :)

  12. I've always wanted to go to Japan and South Korea because of makeup! Shallow me. Hehe
    When I graduated college my sister and I went to UAE to visit my brother and I only visited Sephora once to look for a concealer. A year later, I was so makeup obsessed that I regret not appreciating Sephora back then!
