Chemists, medications and beauty supplies (Ho Chi Minh City)


Hi, I'm moving to Ho Chi Minh City in May and was wondering whether I need to pack stuff like moisturiser, body wash and makeup remover - I have heard they all have whitening agents in them over there. These sort of items tend to weigh the luggage down though, does anyone know if they sell european brands for sensitive skin?

Also how easy is it to get medication from the chemist? Do they have difficulty understanding the explanation of symptoms in English?

Thanks for your help :) - Nikki
