I live in Japan and while I like trying the products here, I'm also a little nervous about buying beauty balms with ingredients in a language I don't read. My biggest concern is that a lot of face creams and beauty products for the skin may have skin lightening ingredients. A Japanese women I worked with told me about them as most Japanese women like to be very fair skinned. While obviously all do not have them, I cannot figure out on my own which do and do not. Also most products here are not color matched for my skin tone so I buy Too Faced at the military bx. I think it works pretty good but I'm make-up stupid.
