Dicila, Iona, and Meishoku: A product fanatic’s paradise, Japan offers so much, it’s hard to choose just one brand to love. These three skin-care lines are some of the most iconic.

Farmacia di Santa Maria Novella: Although the exquisitely scented bath and body products are available in the United States on a limited basis (lafcony.com for locations), a visit to the mother ship in Florence―the oldest, continually operating pharmacy in Europe, according to lore―is heaven.

Foucaud: This French brand produces goods that have an almost addictive scent. The body tonic Friction de Foucaud, in particular, is like Jean Naté all grown up.

Maruwa: These body-care products, available at the South African Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa, are so delicious, they’re worth the slight detour off the Eastern Cape’s gorgeous Garden Route.

Ultraceuticals: The Australian brand is also available in Hong Kong, where the Antioxidant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30+ admirably protects locals from the strong sun.
