BEAUTY REVIEWS & VINTAGE FINDS

Pharmacy: Korean Beauty

Some products from The History of Whoo skincare line.

I can never pass up a Korean beauty market when I spot one.  K-Beauty is everywhere these days, from the drugstore to department stores.   

I have a post about my favorite K-beauty products coming soon but I wanted to list some of my favorites stores and online sources. 

Online sources are convenient but physical locations are so much fun to browse in person.  I can easily lose myself for an hour or two. Google K-Beauty stores in your area, and see what comes up.  

Some that I like to roam are:

Asian grocery stores such as Uwajimaya in Seattle.

0035mm.com in New York.
Besfren Beauty in New York. 

Riley Rose stores. 
K-Pop Beauty in San Francisco. 

K-Town Beauty in Las Vegas. 

Online sources include YesStyleSoko Glam, and Amazon.

Ulta, Sephora, Walgreens, and CVS are stocking more and more K-Beauty and Japanese beauty lines. 

Morning and evening regimens can mean layering seven different products on the face which can be impractical when we’re rushed in the mornings and tired at night.  However, like the French, Korean and Japanese skincare lines seem to be decades ahead of the rest.

Serums, essences, and masks are at the core of these ranges and leave the skin soft, supple, bouncy and bright.  I’m hooked. 

Dr. Jart are known for their incredible BB Creams and face masks.

K-Beauty brand face masks are next level and you’ll find masks galore to choose from.

Clé de Peau Beauté is pure luxury. Overpriced and overscented in my opinion but leaves my skin feeling amazing.

Two of my favorite and very affordable brands are Laneige and Hada Labo.

Shiseido cotton pads are the best. Two different sizes here.
