Korean skin care has been popular for while now and the Korean skincare products has a huge consumer base in India. Korean 7 skin method, double cleansing, sheet masks, layering of products, fermented ingredients, glass skin and honey skin have all been and remain in trend.
For those of you who are already familiar with the Kbeauty products, the major concern is where to buy these products from. There are many re-sellers in India, who stock up these products and sell them at a higher price in India, especially via Instagram.
This blog post is about how I bought products directly from websites without paying any extra charge on price or customs.
Jolse | Korean Cosmetics Online Shop
Jolse is an Online cosmetics platform, where you can purchase Korean skincare products at a cheaper price. They run offers for most of the popular brands like Cox Rx, Etude House, Skin Miso, Missha, Innisfree, Neogen to name a few. In addition to this you get a discount when you first sign up.
It has been almost an year since I purchased from Jolse, and I have not used up wither of these products yet. These days they have better offers. Currently there is a free worldwide shipping + free gifts offer with every purchase.
How I purchased products without paying Shipping charge or Customs charge:
If you keep your purchase to within 35$, you can skip the
You can find the billing info below:
In total for a 41.82 order I payed 30.96 USD including shipping charges.
To give you context, Indian sellers like Beautybarn sells the CosRX product for 1450Rs, where as here I paid around just 1060Rs for it.
I got the products within 2-3 weeks and I faced no issues with the order.
So if you want to get hold of the products fast, you can go for trusted resellers in India. But if cost is your concern, you can go for sites like Jolse.
Some other sites you can check are TesterKorea, Koreadepart and Sweetcorea. You can add to cart all the products you wish to buy and see which of these sites provides the cheapest option.
Soko glam and Charlotte are the most familiar names in Korean skincare. I have watched almost all her Youtube videos on Korean skincare and products.
If you are a beginner in Korean skincare, you can get curated skincare products for your skin type or concern from Sokoglam. Also most of the high performing products available here are exclusive to Sokoglam. You will not find them in other sites.
Charlotte is also involved in creating highly effective skincare products by teaming up with popular skincare brands. Two of such products are the Neogen real ferment micro essence which ahs 93% fermented ingredients and CosRx Triple C lightening liquid, which has 20.5% pure vit C.
I have been eyeing these products for a while, but Soko glam is a site where there is rarely any shipping offers for international shipping. And then came Black Friday sale last October and I purchased these two products. So it is best to wish list the products you like and wait for such special days, if you are not in a hurry. You can save up a lot this way.
But it took around a month for the products to reach me. Actually the first batch of products got stuck in Delhi and didn’t reach me. Sokoglam offered to refund the amount or send the products again. I opted for the products and they reached me within a month. I did not pay any custom for these either.
Their customer support is incredible and there is nothing to worry about incase your product is taking longer to reach you.
