Idk if this was answered before but where do you get your korean skincare products? Or do you know any good sites to get them? Also what products or brands would you say are best? thank youuuuu
Amazon Prime (the quickest method with easy returns)
Jolse.com (usually the cheapest with free shipping, takes a while to ship)
Asian Beauty Exchange Reddit (allows you to buy from other people who use asian beauty products)
I often jump between a lot of different Asian Beauty websites during Black Friday to get the best deals. I rarely pay full price, unless its a staple of mine that I need regularly refilled. Its important to cross-check across multiple websites to see where you’re getting the best deal. Many well known websites upcharge like crazy on Asian Beauty (ex. Sephora, Glow Recipe, Wishtrend, SokoGlam, etc).
As far as the “best” products and brands, that’s hard to say. One of the many reasons why KBeauty is so great is that Korea has an incredibly competitive market, where the latest and greatest quickly becomes mainstream. As a consequence, there are tons of different brands all selling quality products. It is very common to have a different brand for each step of your routine!
Personally, I love Benton and Cosrx are my favorites. Nearly every product they produce is high quality and their brands cater to all skin types, especially acne-prone. They’re also very budget friendly.
Dr. Jart, Belif, and Whamisa are bit more pricy, but they have excellent products. If you go into really high-end brands like Sulwhasoo or sum:37, you will not be disappointed.
However, I have to say there’s a really great trend of no-nonsense, high quality brands coming onto the KBeauty scene. I’ve yet to try these brands, but I’m keeping an eye out for them: Huxley, Olivarrier, and Klavuu
