Korean Beauty Products
Are your Korean beauty products authentic?
Yes, they are fresh, authentic and shipped straight out of South Korea. We only work with the leading K-beauty brands, from Innisfree to primera, and a few trusted 3rd party vendors to provide the best service.
When is the expiration date of my product?
We’ll never send you products that are out of date!
Although the labels are in Korean, there’s often “12M” written inside a tiny jar symbol, meaning that you should discard it 12 months after first opening it. Some products will have a date followed by 제조, which means manufacture in English - this is not the expiry date.
If you can’t find any expiry date, take a picture of the label and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can decipher it for you!

It’s a simple, refined daily skincare routine originating in South Korea. You just follow the K-beauty steps every morning (we’ve created a helpful article to show you how) with fresh products tailored to your skin type from Kosame!
What skin type am I?
Working out your skin type is essential to choosing K-beauty products. Do you have sensitive skin? Mature skin? Acne-prone skin? Or maybe you have a combination of multiple. Our skin types change over time, so reassess yours with our simple guide to skin types.
