Hi Asian beauty products,

Here is a shopping guide for Asian Beauty products in Malaysia.

If you are coming to Malaysia or having overlay in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia you might be interested to shop for Asian cosmetics or skincare products in Malaysia because like many people said, it is a shopping paradise because everything is cheap here.

shopping guide for Asian Beauty products in Malaysia

It isn't the same thing for us who doesn't earn much but well...

I actually put up this guide as a request so I hope that you will find this helpful.  Since I cannot afford to travel to Kuala Lumpur often because of reasons(money problem&the distance of 8 hours away),  I hope for your understanding.

If you are in Kuala Lumpur, you can actually find most of the popular drugstore places for Asian brands.  Most of shopping places are in popular shopping malls such as the Midvalley Megamall, One Utama, Paradigm, Pavilion, Suria KLCC, Sunway Pyramid.  Another shopping place are Queensbay in Penang and Suria Sabah Mall which is in Sabah.

There are information counters in all those shopping malls where one can ask for the direction for the shop. Those shopping malls opened from 10am to 10pm so shop all you want. It is just most malls are really very crowded during weekends XD so becareful with your things.

In Every shopping Malls

Daiso-Best Japanese place to shop for RM5.90(price increased).  I have been to the one in Pavillion, Midvalley(2 floor) and Sungai Wang are really big.  Konjac sponge, silicon mask, decant spray bottles, snacks are some of the stuff worth buying.

Watsons- This is Asian drugstore where you can find many varieties of Taiwanese brands, Korean and Japanese brands.  Each Watsons has different kind of brands depending on the size of that outlets.  Some of the brands are in the lowest shelves so look everywhere for them XD. They have house brand as well.  Do check the link for the list of full brands available in Watsons since there are too many of them for me to list them all down here.

However, there are some brands that are only available online such as Cosrx(only saw two of the products in there) because of the limited amount of products. There are also some brands(Canmake, Peripera, Marjolica Marjoca) that are not available online but they available in Watsons outlets.

Hada Labo, Naruko, My Beauty Diary, My scheming, Himalaya neem products, Mediheal Line friend, Dr.Check Hydrocolloid, Miacare hydrocolloid acne patches, Ellips for hair, Mandom Bifesta cleansing water, Coni beauty jelly mask, Leaders sheet mask, Sexy look sheet mask, Lovemore sheet masks, Kinohitmisu health products, Liese hair products, Moist Diane Japanese hair product, Mediheal sheet masks, Freshel are some of the products that you can check it out. As for makeup,  Koji Dolly Wink, Kiss Me, Canmake, Ma Cherie, Senka, Tsubaki, Peripera lip ink and Clio are some of the brands.

Guardian-This is another popular drugstore that has a lot of brands that are exclusive to them.  So, always do go into Guardian to check and compare the prices with Watsons for that extra saving XD.
They also have their own house brands.

List of all their exclusive brands HERE

Kailijumei jelly lipstick, Choonee, Mentholatum(lip balm), Paladio and etc.

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare- this is a quiet shop which feels really healthy and so mostly people are afraid to walk in.  However, I said to walk in and find that Neem capsules and some of the Aryuvedic herbs which are available in their outlets and not in Watsons outlets or Guardian outlets.  However, one might have to ask a few outlets as it is always sold out.  I like their Neem mask pack and their Neem cleanser.

Sasa Malaysia- one of the biggest Sasa is in Midvalley so here you can find a lot of products as well.  Mediheal, Dr.Young, Dr. Wu, Haruhada, Shills, Kikumasamune, Oozoo, Pupa, Koji, JayJun, Canmake, Kiss Me, Koji Dolly Wink, Kose, Dejavu, B'Liv, Darkness, Son&Park etc

* You could click on the main words to go into the website of the malls. Then, click on the beauty and wellness to look into the shops that you would like to check out.

The Saem Malaysia outlets are in only in Kuching and Miri Sarawak. You can find it in famous online shopping Hermo.MY
Always21-an affordable Korean brand for students. Here is for list of outlets if interested. Also not transport friendly.

I think this is all for the guide.  Enjoy your shopping in Malaysia and let me know if there are any questions.  There are some other shopping malls within walking distance near Pavillion such as Lot10, Sungai Wang and Times Square which you can check them out as well. The structure in Sungai Wang is confusing and there isn't much to shop in there so not mentioning it here. Many of the shops in Times Square are available in Pavillion so I guess it is pointless to make you walk 20 minutes over to that malls XD.

I am not paid for this guide and not affiliated with them.  As of today, there are some companies that did not reply to my request for list of brands in their shop so I couldn't accurately list out everything.

The opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.
