There is a new store in town for beauty junkies to check out - Tokyu Hands at Westgate in Jurong East .
The Japanese lifestyle store opened last week and its beauty section takes up about a third of the 7,500 sq ft store.
It features more than 50 Japanese beauty brands - many of which are exclusives - such as Nov, Wasser, Suhada Recipe, Loretta, MVNE and Chacott. There are also beauty gadgets and grooming products for men.
Products that caught our eye include the Face Lift Tape by Magie Lab (from $14.90). It is said to be an alternative to actual face-lifting surgery - just stick the almost-invisible tape near the areas you want to lift, such as the eyes.
Also, check out the moisturising face sheet masks printed with Kabuki designs and animal faces ($15 for a box of two) from Isshindo Honpo.
