My husband took my travel size facial wash so I didn’t have any facial wash on my trip to Singapore. Since I had a four hour layover at Narita Airport, I decided to check out all the stores there to see if I could find a small facial wash to try out. At the Duty-Free Brand Boutique Mall, I discovered the Japanese beauty line, Yojiya.

Yojiya was founded in 1904 in Kyoto, first selling from a cart. Since then, they have expanded all over Japan, including to airports. They are known for their traditional makeup tools and natural skin care products.

I decided to try the Yojiya Facial Wash Paper Soap since it was unique (paper soap!) and easy to travel with.

Pros:

  • Great for traveling! No need to worry about liquid spilling in your bag.
  • No fragrance or chemicals.

Cons:

  • You need to make sure your hand is dry before grabbing the sheet of paper soap from the box.
  • Currently only sold in Japan.

Verdict:

I highly recommend this facial wash since it’s a great, simple, no nonsense facial wash to travel with. This product is even great to bring along with you to the gym to wash your face after a workout. I liked it so much that on my way back to the states from Singapore, I bought another pack of the facial wash. Make sure to grab one if you’re in Japan or have a layover there.

Tip:

One pack comes with 20 sheets of paper soap. I discovered that one sheet makes too much foam for my face so I tear the paper soap into quarters, which is the perfect size. This means one pack can now last up to 80 washes for me.

What’s your favorite travel facial wash?

  • i actually used their skin cream for a while. i bought it while i was in japan bc one of the girls i went with was obsessed with their stuff. i liked it!

    • Oh really?! Oh man … I was debating about trying out their moisturizer but since I didn’t know much about the company at the time and I only needed the facial wash, I just got that. I like the facial wash paper soap since it’s easy to travel with and gentle enough on sensitive skin. You can try it next time you visit!

    By the way, do this sheets have expiry date?

    • I don’t believe so since it’s not in liquid form but you should probably shouldn’t use it after a couple of years 🙂
