You can buy skin care products from the States at many independent stores, shopping centers, and even supermarkets, but the price is at least 50% higher than in the States. 

There are many shops that sell "hàng xách tay" (hand-carried goods), items brought to Vietnam by the shop's connections (international students, flight attendants, and frequent travellers).  The prices in those shops are 25% - 50% higher the original prices. 

If you want to shop online, you can check out Shopee as Heretolearn suggested above, or FB's honest vendors (pay attention to the date they joined the site, the number of followers, and the comments.)

Unless you must use the same products no matter the price, I suggest you give Korean and Japanese products a try.  Many, many beauty experts in the States have been doing that and recommended their clients to do the same.  Japanese and Korean skincare products are expensive in the States but very affordable in Vietnam.  My first recommendation is everything with the name Senka on the bottle -- it's Shiseido quality with drugstore price sticker.
