The Asian answer to Sephora

What girl doesn’t love Sephora?  It’s like a mega-mart of cosmetics, skincare, and fragrance, without the annoying department store salesperson.  Hell, even my husband loves trying their stuff for men!

But if any of you have spent some time in Asia, you’ll know they have their own version of Sephora.  It’s called “Sasa,” and it’s where all women go for their beauty products.  If you visit any major metropolitan city in Asia you’ll find one, and it’s worth a trip.

But because of the internet, you don’t have to go to Asia to visit Sasa.  Their website will suffice nicely.

So why should you care?  First, they totally ship to the States and the shipping rates are very normal.  Second, there’s a wide array of products that you can’t get in this country (or at least are harder to find).  Shisedo has additional product lines on the site, and Kanebo has products you can find in the U.S.

But here’s the biggest reason…  Some of the products they carry that CAN be found in the States, are cheaper at!  It could be because they’re either made in Asia or more popular there than they are here.  Some brands are discounted anywhere from 20% to 30% on a regular basis, like Bourjois and Dior Addict cosmetic lines, and even some SK-II items!  These are brands that would never go on sale in America, but are always cheaper at  They even offer free shipping on all U.S. orders if you purchase $75 or more.

  1. Funny you should write about Sasa. I just got back not long ago and this store was everywhere in Hong Kong, I mean everywhere. How could I not notice the huge signs of the girl with pink hair!

    Anyhoo, still love your site, it’s fun 🙂
