The Best Beauty Buys From Around The World

From the foundation the Hungarians love to the new crease-proof eyeshadow that's making its way in to every Parisian woman's make-up bag, these are the best beauty buys out there...

Part of the excitement of a long-haul holiday has always been discovery. New flavours to sample, a different culture to immerse yourself in and, of course, new beauty products to squeeze in to our suitcases, then rave about back in the UK.

Whether picked up from a department store, skincare specialist or added to our baskets in duty free at the airport, exploring other countries is how we first discovered many of those products that we now just can’t imagine living without.

Our most recent faraway find is a rose foam facial cleanser by Japanese beauty brand, Kanebo Evita. Thanks to an intricate stencil, the anti-ageing formula is dispensed in the shape of (you guessed it) a rose. A video released on social media last week set instagram alight with people the world over desperately trying to find out how to purchase one. It’s currently only available in Japan, brillant news if you a holiday booked there, but if not we predict it will be availble to buy here soon enough.

Not got any holidays plans coming up? Don?t worry – the world is a much smaller place now. Brilliant websites like and have transformed our routines while international beauty blogs are packed with exciting new products that we all want to try. Fortunately, we no longer need to jet off to faraway places to uncover the best beauty secrets from around the world.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite global beauty buys, from the Japanese mascara that gives long, smudgeproof lashes every time to the Swedish leave-in conditioner that will transform your locks. Want a California-style tan but stuck on rainy British soil? We?ve found the American face tanner that promises to give you a natural bronzed glow, without a single trace of orange. Or maybe you long for the beautifully smooth skin that?s seen on so many women in the Far East ? a Korean oil-based cleanser could be the answer. Incorporate these beauty secrets from around the world into your beauty collection and get ready for your best complexion, hair and make-up ever.

So, whether you’re discovering a brilliant Hungarian all-in-one cream or picking up a fantastic face oil from Israel, you can now delve into the beauty secrets from around the world, all from the comfort of your own home.
