While Malaysians are spoilt for choice when it comes to beauty products, the savvy ones among us are still always on the lookout for beauty brands that have made a name overseas even if it’s not so readily available in our country.
A look at it and you’d probably guess why it’s so popular in Malaysia. Its understated packaging, fuss-free formulas, and glowing reviews appeal to us.
Because the brand doesn’t have a physical presence in Malaysia currently, it can be a little tricky to find its products here. (They were available briefly through a distributor a few years ago but the distributor is no longer active.)
But before we get to where to buy Image Skincare in Malaysia, lets also learn more about the brand and its bestsellers so you know what you should shop for.
Image Skincare: what’s the brand all about?
Image Skincare is backed by skincare professionals: it’s founded by an esthetician and developed by a plastic surgeon, which tells you pretty much about the scientific formulation you’re going to get in the products.
Known for using high-performance ingredients, Image Skincare products are said to be trusted by skincare professionals all over the world and are often used at professional treatments, as well as for home care.
Image Skincare is also well-loved by those who embrace clean beauty. Its products don’t contain synthetic dyes, artificial fragrances, mineral oil, phthalates, and parabens. It also doesn’t test on animals.
The brand says that all products undergo extensive clinical testing, including comprehensive reviews by a panel of independent skincare professionals, safety assessments for potential sensitisers, and stability evaluations. And this commitment is one of the reasons why it’s so well-loved among those who are serious about skincare.

Where to buy Image Skincare in Malaysia
The Image Skincare official website has e-commerce capabilities, but unfortunately only ship within the USA.
The brand, however, mentioned several authorised retailers, however, very few ship to Malaysia or exclude Image Skincare products in its list of brands that are allowed to be shipped to Malaysia.
Currently there isn’t any single platform that’s distributing the brand here, so it’s not easy to find where to buy Image Skincare in Malaysia.
However, the e-commerce platform that we managed to find the a significant number of Image Skincare products is Shopee. The great thing about buying on Shopee is that shipping is extremely cheap (some offer free shipping). The downside? These are not authorised retailers, so there’s no guarantee on quality. So if you’re buying from these Shopee merchants, remember to research thoroughly and look at the ratings and reviews on the merchants that were left by other customers.
On the site, we found merchants selling some of the bestsellers, such as the Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser (RM143.32), Clear Cell Medicated Acne Lotion (RM246), and the Vital C Hydrating Intense Moisturizer (RM440).
