Hailed as the ‘Japanese skincare beauty expert’, for most, DHC is a skincare secret waiting to be revealed. A beauty hybrid of tradition and innovation, DHC’s niche stems from the discovery of the antioxidant properties of olive oil and the Japanese tradition of herbology back in the 70s. Ever since then, DHC has become world-famous for their signature Deep Cleansing Oil and their treasure trove of advanced solutions that are inspired by the art of Wabi-sabi.
Wabi-sabi – 侘寂
A Japanese tradition that finds beauty in imperfections.
#1 DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
We love it because it removes all types of makeup…
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil – Facial Cleanser
There’s a strong reason why the Deep Cleansing Oil is sold every 10 seconds worldwide: it’s the best for makeup removal. If you always double cleanse, or maybe you find it hard to remove all traces of mascara and foundation, all it takes for this cleansing oil to work its magic is 20 seconds, without a sticky residue too! Rich in antioxidants, the Deep Cleansing Oil won’t clog your pores either, it simply hydrates and protects your skin, whilst simplifying the cleansing process tenfold.
#2 DHC Mascara Perfect Pro
We love it because it doesn’t budge…
DHC Mascara Perfect Pro – Double Protection
For those who struggle with their mascara flaking and smearing, the Mascara Perfect Pro – Double Protection will be the answer to all of your lash-lengthening prayers. Its precise brush and tubing style formula lifts and enhances each tiny lash. But our favourite thing about the Perfect Pro Mascara? Its stamina; you can apply this mascara with confidence, as it stays put from morning until evening. Also, if Emma Watson loves it, you know it’s a must-try.
#3 DHC Silky Cotton Pads
We love them because they’re perfect for applying skincare essences and toners…
DHC Silky Cotton – Cosmetic Pads
You may be thinking, how can cotton pads be so special? Well, it’s about the production. Made from 100% natural cotton with a delicate silk blend, these pillow-soft cotton pads have been made to resist snagging, dragging and leaving any fluff around the eyes or on the skin, which is great for those with skin sensitivity. They’re lint-free which is beneficial if you use watery skincare products, as no fibres will get stuck when removing your nail polish or applying your micellar water. You simply pop your fingers in the pocket of the pad and wipe away.
#4 DHC Face Wash Powder
We love it because it’s an instant glow boost for dull skin…
DHC Face Wash Powder
Washing grains and face wash powders are huge in Japan. What’s special about their innovative powder texture is that they are usually enriched with enzymes that target dead skin cells, revealing a radiant finish day after day. The DHC Face Wash Powder features protease enzymes (usually found in our digestive system), which are Pac-Man style exfoliators that eat away bonds of dead skin cells to create a clearer complexion. It’s ideal for those who have a grey or sallow look to their skin.
#5 DHC Eyelash Tonic Eyelash Conditioner
We love it because it makes your lashes stronger…
Eyelash Tonic – Eyelash Conditioner
If you have frail or weak lashes this double action tool will prime, nourish and protect them, creating a fuller lash fringe that’s able to withstand everyday damage from curlers or makeup removal. The hydrating lash tonic works day and night; in the morning, you apply this a mascara base, then in the evening, coat your lashes in this rejuvenating tonic and leave on to sleep.
#6 DHC Lip Cream
We love it because it keeps dry lips soft…
DHC Lip Cream
This multi-tasking lip balm not only softens lips, but it also provides a silky-smooth base for your lipstick, which is ideal if you favour matte finishes. If your lips often feel sensitive and cracked, the caring blend of aloe leaf and vitamin E repairs and soothes – all you need to do is take a look at our reviews to see that it’s very popular with our customers.
#7 DHC Olive Virgin Oil
DHC Olive Virgin Oil
If you’re looking to take a punt with facial oils, the DHC Olive Virgin Oil is a great discovery point. An ancient beauty tradition that’s still a talking point today, olive oil provides skin with deep moisture and nourishment. This oil isn’t heavy or uncomfortable to use; it’s lightweight but highly effective, as its antioxidant infused formula harnesses the powers of hand-picked olives to keep your skin’s moisture barrier protected and intact without clogging your pores.
#8 DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX
We love it because its felt-tip applicator is extremely precise…
DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX
Blacker than black and so precise, the format of the DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX makes creating the perfect flick easier and more efficient. It’s quick-drying and it’s water-resistant, which for many ticks all of the eyeliner boxes when deciphering the best format for application and longevity.
