GUIDE ON SHOPPING FOR ASIAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS IN MALAYSIA

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, 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
Cathy Dolls(Thailand brand), Berrisom, Aiken tea tree oil(dupe of Body Shop), Garden of Eden (facial oils), Dr.Morita, Lakme, K Palette, Dejavu, Canmake, Biore, Sunplay, Hello Kitty, Forencos 7 day masks, Japan Gals, Hada Labo.

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.

REVIEW ON HELLO EVERYBODY VERBENA SCALP SCALING SHAMPOO

Do you share the same sentiment as I am?

I live in a hot and humid country.  It means that my hair goes flat and oily just after few hours of washing.  To add onto my woes, whenever the wind blow my hair onto my face, it means acne is bound to pop onto my face because well  ...  oily dusty hair onto the skin= acne start having its muddy party.

How I wish that kind of situation is like some sort of hair advertisement with me looking like some sort of supermodel flipping her gorgeous hair. In reality, I just am having oily greasy hair stuck all over my face XD .

However, most Asian hair care only caters for damaged dry hair and it is not easy to find hair product for oily scalp and for humid weather.

I did try this Korean shampoo brand, Hello Everybody Verbena Scalp Scaling Shampoo and here is a review on it.

Hello Everybody Verbena Scalp Scaling Shampoo comes in form of a pump and there is no box.  The pump dispense the right amount of shampoo.  The shampoo has a jelly texture with some beads.  It smells really wonderful like how verbena perfume will be.  I adore the scent of the shampoo.  Since the shampoo is made for dandruff and oily hair type, it has really powerful cleansing ability which does clean my scalp really well.  I have really oily scalp, dandruff problem but my hair is resilient to dryness so this shampoo is great for me.

It does have a cooling sensation during washing and the scalp does feel great after wash.  It has peppermint leaf extract which helps me to prevent dandruff so don't let it go to the face or you will have irritation later. Still, do check the ingredients for ingredients that your scalp might not like.

Overall,  I do like Hello Everybody Verbena Scalp Scaling Shampoo since it does clean my hair well, prevent dandruff and the effect does last two days.   This shampoo does deal with the oiliness, dandruff and limp hair which is great.  It won't be suitable if your hair is not of those oily type and make sure to use a conditioner to prevent 'wires'(rough) hair.

Batiste swept the world with its dry shampoo!  

Thank goodness for the creation of dry shampoo.  Dry shampoo makes it easy for travel and saving the time of washing and drying the hair every day.  My hair gets greasy fast even if it is just after two hours of washing.  It will just go limp.  Since I am away from places like Kuala Lumpur, I went online searching for the best price and I found it!  Do check it at the bottom if you want to know where I bought it.


So, here is a review on Batiste XXL dry shampoo.

BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO
This is XXL is not for dry hair type because it does make the hair feels drier.  There is silica and talc so that is one of the reason that this absorb the grease better.  However, it sure suits oily and greasy scalp.


BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO
BEFORE BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO

 My hair looks like crap here.  In case you are wondering, I don't have dark black hair.  This is my natural hair colour and I didn't dye it.

BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO
USING BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO

Alright, I look like I am 50 years old here.  Do not spray as much as I do here.  I just wanted to show how it looks like.  Sorry also, I didn't apply any makeup here. XP  Sorry. Hopefully it is does not scare the daylight out of you.



BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO
AFTER  BATISTE XXL VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO


It feels cooling when you spray it which is nice for such hot weather in Malaysia.  It does make my hair looks bigger just as I had just blow dry my hair.  Best thing is the effect stays for few hours !  Finally, big hair =) .  This is especially useful for someone like me whose hair just turn limp after washing.

It smell nice too since it has light floral scent. Love the scent.

Batiste has other version such as the Batiste "Clean & Classic Original" which is more suitable for pregnant women and mother in confinement.  This is because there is less ingredients.  By the way, I have already check that there is no harmful ingredients in there that can potentially harm your skin or baby. So it is safe to use.

There are two other types for dyed hair that can help cover the roots which is useful for those who dyed their hair and just want to temporarily cover the roots.

As usual, Phyto has such futuristic bottle and I love the design.

The shampoo bottle has a bigger cylindrical look but it contain the same amount of shampoo.Becareful when you pour the content because it is filled up to the cap and the solution is a watery.

Next good reason is because there is no thickener to thicken the texture of the shampoo which might irritate and clogged the scalp of people who has oily scalp.  So, next time, do check if the texture of the shampoo.

The shampoo foam up very little almost none at all but it does not mean that it is not cleaning the hair well.  In fact, the shampoo really cleanses my hair very well without any irritation.  My scalp is not too dry but very well balanced and I love it!  Even without any conditioner, my hair feels really soft and light.  It doesn't dry my hair at all even if I use it everyday.  How to fall in love with a shampoo that is so gentle, cleanses so well, smell so herbal and fabulous?

The shampoo itself is so good on its own that it save my pocket for I don't need to use conditioner or all those sort of hair mask at all.  Phyto brands also mentioned that there is no need for conditioner or other hair products for oily scalp as it can worsen the hair condition.  How not to like a brand that provide such honest and helpful tips?



I also loses lesser hair with every wash after I started using this Phytopanama daily balancing shampoo compare to before. Love this shampoo very much!




Next time if you have problem with your hair, do check out Phyto brands. Phyto sure has many really good amazing natural products and many usually return after their first try of their products.  I am sold too after trying their products. =)

BBE1117 should mean best before year November 2017.



The shampoo is yellowish clear gel with smell of rosemary, cypress and citrus.  I find it really refreshing since I do love smell of rosemary.  It does lathered but not much considering that this doesn't contain sodium laureth sulfate which is harmful.  It has soft foam since it is made of natural ingredients and rest assure since a lot of foam doesn't mean it actually clean the scalp better.

I find it cleanses the hair well and doesn't leave residue on the hair.  It makes my hair fluffy without the use of conditioner as well.  I think this natural shampoo products are really great even for the whole family.  My family members love it very much.  It is also easy to carry just this one bottle of shampoo for the whole family during travelling =) .

REVIEW ON PHYTO PARIS PHYTOCEDRAT- PURIFYING TREATMENT SHAMPOO FOR OILY SCALP


While most are complaining about how dried their hair are, I have problem with extreme oily scalp. I really dislike it whenever I have to see a hairdresser because the first thing that they will do is to complain on how oily my scalp is. I have more nightmares with hairdressers than seeing the dentists!

Next, the hairdresser will start their list of recommendations of products including dyeing to reduce the oiliness of my scalp. Of course dyeing hair dries out the oil on my scalp but it can also make me lose a lot of hair. What is the point of adding more to “the list of my oily scalp problems”?

Sorry that I haven’t mentioned about the hair and skin on top of my head because I was battling with acne and so oily scalp is just a mini problem which I ignored. Besides, who talks about oily scalp when they have all those gigantic pesky red bumps on the face?

Finally, I am here to introduce one of my favourite hair products which are really affordable for the effectiveness that these wonderful products can provide. It actually saves me the trouble, hassle, money and my tears (tears because I have to listen to annoying hairdressers).

Phyto's story began in 1969 in the countryside of Southern France. Legendary hair stylist, Patrick Al├Ęs, had a vision of creating plant-based haircare products using environmentally conscious methods. PHYTO offers the best botanical solutions for all scalp & hair conditions such as thinning hair, dandruff, sensitive, oily scalp & dry, damaged hair.


Their products are 95% from natural products and really safe for your hair.


Phyto famous products includes phyto 7 the first day cream for hair (1968) , phytophanere the first dietary complement to fortify hair and nails (1980), phytolaque soie first botanical spray with no aerosol (1989),phytocyane first age-defying treatment to revitalize thinning hair in women (1992), phytoprogenium the first intelligent shampoo (2006), phytokeratine all the strength of botanical keratin to repair your hair (2010)

All Phyto hair products start with the word Phyto and the box has a simple futuristic design to it.



The bottle is a tall cylindrical aluminum silver color bottle with a simple cap. It is really sturdy.

What it is:
A treatment shampoo to purify and control excess oil.


What it is formulated to do:
This luxurious shampoo delivers deep cleaning and antifungal benefits. Recommended for those who tend to have oily scalp, it controls excessive oil production while preventing oil migration to reduce shampoo frequency. Hair is left cleaner, fresher, and fuller-looking.

Formulated WITHOUT: - Phthalates





Phyto Paris Phytocedrat is purifying treatment shampoo for oily scalp. It is for weekly usage or use it everyday for very severe cases. The shampoo is very runny so be extra careful during pouring. Pour it to the palm first before applying it to the hair and leave it for about 2 minutes before rinsing it off.

This shampoo smells really nice  with a light citrus smell and has a clear brownish colour to it. No artificial on the shampoo.  It does have a little foam but not much which is good because lots of foam doesn't mean it will clean your hair well.

  Here is the ingredients list.

I am actually very *shy* to release a photo of such oily limp ugly looking hair of mine but just has to show you how oily is my hair.  This is not even second day of wash.  It was taken after only 3 hours after the hair wash.

Please ignore my face with zero makeup.  Don't mind my eye bags.  Can you see that my hair has more volume to it? This is the second day after wash =)


PHYTO PARIS PHYTOCEDRAT
















This is highly recommended professional hair products if you have serious oily scalp like I do.

The shampoo treatment is really potent and works really well to reduce the oiliness on my scalp without stripping my hair off its oil. What I was surprised was Phyto offer treatment which is in form of a shampoo! 

Extra tip for oily scalp is you do not need those extra essence, oil or conditioner because it will just worsen the condition of your oily scalp.

I love this treatment as this treatment change the time that I need to wash my hair. Now I can go three days without washing my hair but still have bouncy hair! The shampoo leaves my hair silky soft. My scalp is also healthier and not greasy at all.  Now, I don’t have to waste money on conditioner and all I need is one bottle of shampoo to wash my hair. Think about the amount of time and effort that I can save with just using this Phytocedrat.


Now, no even one hairdresser said anything about me never washing my hair or having extreme oiliness on my hair anymore.




 Please check out Phyto other wonderful products that they offer. You name your hair problems, they will have the solution for you! This brand is way cheaper than some high end brands which usually doesn't have products for my oily scalp. Besides, Phyto are made from natural products.  *thumbs up* to Phyto for such wonderful hair products!
