I know that when it comes to buying online we are often skeptical for many reasons like: website might try to scam you or the products may be fake. Although some websites claim their products are 100% authentic, sometimes it is not the case.

It is very important to always look for reviews about these online shops before you actually buy something in order to help you assess whether the online store is trusted or not.

Here are some of the popular online stores to buy Korean cosmetics from.

MEMEBOX

    W2beauty prices are extremely higher while comsetic-love i use to buy from but their customer support really bad. Emails goes unanswered for forever. I recently bought few items from http://www.q-depot.com. Their prices are not so good but ok while shipping was free for orders $49+. I really love their theme of promoting Cruelty-free Korean cosmetics and customer support was extremely good.

    • I just checked out the website and it looks awesome! Will probably include it in my next list. Thanks Stephanie!

    I would like to try Korean cosmetics!!!
