Thanks Jenny for your post. I'm planning to go to Japan & Taiwan soon. Wonder if cosmetics and skincare are cheaper on Taiwan than Japan. Please give me some advice on what to buy from each country (skincare, cosmetic, and souvenirs). Thanks mich.

If you're buying Japanese brands they will be cheaper in Japan, and you can find them stores like Matsumoto KiYoshi, Ainz & Tulpe, PLAZA and LOFT. I've only been to the Ainz & Tulpe in Shinjuku but I really like how organized the store is and their product selection. As for Taiwan, I'd buy their sheet masks. All my beauty product recommendations are already in the post, but if you want food related souvenirs make sure to buy pineapple cakes and milk cakes in Taiwan.

Thanks for this post! I'm possibly visiting in a few months so it would be great to actually bring back some great skincare as well. What are your recommendations for Suqqu products? Although I may actually get to Tokyo and can try to get it there though. I would definitely hunt for those masks and get some brightening lotion. Cosmed also sounds like a cool store!

I've only tried samples of Suqqu's skincare, specifically their cleansers, and I wasn't too impressed. I recommend their lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushes, and brushes if you really want to splurge! Their foundation is also really nice, but the shade range is extremely limited.
