100 Innovative Asian Beauty Products

From Repairing Snail Serums to Anti-Aging Face Wraps

— August 12, 2016 — Fashion
In recent years, Asian beauty products have become extremely popular all over the world. Whether it is South Korea's infamous multi-step skincare routine or Japan's unusual face-sculpting gadgets, Asian cosmetics are more popular than ever before.

One of the ways in which Asian beauty products differ from their Western counterparts is in the use of unusual ingredients. Indeed, consumers should not be surprised to find everything from caviar oil to snail mucus inside their products. There are also some high-end Asian brands using ingredients such as gold leaf to create some of the world's most luxurious cosmetics.

Many Asian beauty brands are also known for their wide range of unique -- and sometime downright strange -- beauty tools. For instance, there is a product called the Bigan Beauty Face Expander that is worn over the mouth to strengthen the facial muscles. Another unique Japanese beauty gadget is the Magica Beauty Moon Double Skin Wand, which uses electric micro-currents to revitalize the skin.
