L:A Bruket No. 155 Clay Mask
We love this vitamin-infused Swedish clay mask for its use of Kaolin clay, which is rich in mineral salts, iron, potassium, and calcium. Some users say the mask does way more than clean out your pores, reporting its beneficial effects on headaches and stress. $30; buy it here
Cure Natural Aqua Gel
This exfoliating aqua gel from Japan is a cult-favorite in the beauty community. Apply on skin, wait 30 seconds, and rub in circular motions to see all the dead skin on your face formulate into tiny, white balls. We know it sounds gross, but it’ll rid your skin of dirt and toxins like no other product out there. $29.90; buy it here
Kiribai Red Bean Steam Warming Eye Pillow
If your eyes tend to feel tired or sore after a day spent traveling, or staring at the computer, try this Japanese warming eye pillow. We love the red bean version, but it also comes in lavender sage, chamomile ginger, yuzu, and Buglarian rose.

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt
There’s a reason why this sea-salt scrub is considered the Granddaddy of all cleansing shampoos: it purifies, moisturizes, and soothes the scalp, helps calm itchiness, and can also be used as a post-color treatment. The icing on the cake? It’s free of parabens, silicone, sulfates, and colorants.

Daiso Japan Hyaluronic Acid Sleeping Pack
Fun fact: in many parts of Asia, a mask is referred to as a “pack.” This hyaluronic-acid infused overnight mask rehydrates skin while you sleep, which means it's super convenient for when you’re too tired to do your multi-step nighttime regimen.

Verso Skincare Super Serum Series
Verso, a Scandinavian brand with a cult following in the U.S., offers some of the most effective anti-aging products on the market—thanks in large part to its Retinol 8 formula. We love the Super Serum Series, which comes with Verso's best-selling face and eye serums. They're only once ounce each, which means the bottles are TSA-approved.

Institut Esthederm Cellular Water Spray
Institut Esthederm's products stand out as some of France’s best. We love the Photo Regul face creams and SPF products, but the patented Eau Cellulaire, which replicates the water found in the body, has to be our favorite. An instant rejuvenator and refresher, this organic energizing spray reportedly increases the skin’s vital functions and cellular activity.

Neogen Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling (Wine)
Every tester we spoke to praised these red-wine-infused peeling wipes as skin saviors. Dual-sided, one has exfoliating properties, and one is softer, for gentler scrubbing. After only one use, our users noticed a noticeable glow and reported plumper, smoother skin. Oh, and they smell good, too.

L:A Bruket No. 063 Salt Scrub
Another import from insider-y Swedish brand L:A Bruket, this exfoliating body scrub leaves skin feeling clean and refreshed. The herbal scent is calming, so use it during a nighttime bath or shower to help get rid of the day.

Hada Labo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion
Before moisturizing, apply this best-selling toner on damp skin. (Another fun fact: Japanese retailers often refer to toners as lotions.) A little goes an extremely long way, and makes skin instantly feel tight, soft, and hydrated. Many users reported looking years younger after just one use.

Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask With Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil
French cheveaux master Christophe Robin makes what may be the most rejuvenating, moisturizing, and healing hair product we’ve ever tried. Because each application only requires a small amount, it lasts forever, so it’s most certainly worth the price. The only problem? It can be a bit tricky to get your hands on—so thank Amazon for that.

Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
If you suffer from difficult-to-remove blackheads, meet your new best friend: this BHA (a.k.a. salicylic acid)toner draws out impurities from your skin and purges—sometimes, quite visibly—toxins, dirt, and oil from your pores like no other product on the market.
