It’s no secret that the Korean beauty world is one step ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to the latest and greatest in skincare and makeup. In case you didn’t know, Korean women are the queens of skincare and invest lots of time (and won) into their glowing, youthful skin. If you’ve been wanting to up your #SkincareGame,or even just start a regular skincare routine, you need to hop on the K-beauty train.
Fortunately for those of us not living in Korea, it’s gotten much easier to find the latest and greatest Korean beauty products. But now, subscription boxes take it to the next level. They come stocked with everything from sheet masks to BB cream and moisturizers to serums, among other things, so you can experiment and find what products work best for you. And no need to browse countless online reviews – they do the research for you!
