For those of you that buy Korean beauty products, whereabouts do you purchase from? I've been online on a couple of sites and don't remember it being so expensive to purchase.

Where does everyone purchase theirs and is it cheaper? I want to try the Holika Holika primer but ouch its a tad expensive lol.

I just get mine from iherb now. I haven't compared prices though but it's just convenient since I already order regularly from them. They also stock Pixi. They don't have much Holika Holika at the moment but they seem to add to their Korean brands all the time.

I normally go to Hikoco first and if they don't have it I will check out Yesstyle.com.  It can be a little pricey from there though but they do stock a lot of brands.

I usually go Hikoco, but I recently snagged some Korean face masks super cheap on Tobi because they were on sale! Which I didn't expect.

SmileyPisces - I don't mind it being more expensive, as long as I can get it :).  I've recently discovered Hada Labo's Shiro-Jyun Premium Whitening Lotion and it has blown my mind on how moisturising it is.  Japan Mart might stock it but I'd be crushed if I went there and it was out of stock.

Imoshen, Japan Mart have a good selection of Hado Labo on their website available to buy online, including the  shirojyun line.

Thanks Soozie!  I had a look on there for the one I picked up overseas but they didn't have it on the website.  Might duck into the shop to see if they have it but if not, yesstyle.com it is :).

SmileyPisces - I have been using it for nearly two weeks now and what I've really noticed is that it has been calming down my redness after washing as well as being incredibly moisturising. 

Alpha Arbutin is supposed to take a long time to have any effect so I'm not expecting overnight miracles.  If it helps with redness however, I'll be purchasing this for life.  

It doesn't make my skin oily either and in the morning when I wash my face it is so so soft. 

I find I'm wearing less makeup too.

Yay for Cica Balm!  Soon Jung (Etude House) have an amazing Cica Balm that is free of fragrance and wonderfully soothing.
