Popular Japanese Skincare for 2018

Hey Subbies,

I wanted to do a post on the popular skincare in Japan since the trend this year is to look towards Japanese Cosmetics. The reason why I haven't updated anything on Japanese skincare is that many brands have a cult following in Japan because they have a similar process in product development as France. A lot brands in the west would just discontinue their brand line or reformulate it if their budget would allow it in some cases. Simply, it stays in the rotation. Also, it's really expensive to get Japanese brands in the US because of the taxes. Here is an older post so can see what has been updated and what has not in terms of popularity.
