Highly Raved K-Indie Beauty Brands that You Wished You Had Known

Let’s face it, Korea IS the ultimate place to go for all beauty junkies, from roadshop brands like Innisfree and Etude House to expensive luxury brands like Sulwhasoo and The History of Whoo, Korea is really the paradise to pamper all your skin needs.

However, besides these well known brands that have received worldwide recognition, there are also tons of independant beauty brands in Korea that share their own fanbase. We list out 5 brands that range from clinical to green and cruelty-free. Each of these individual brands have their own specialty and ideals, they are all super amazing but some are really difficult to get in Singapore! ㅠ.ㅠ

Saturday Skin

What do you think about Korean indie beauty brands? Are your hearts fluttering like we did? I wished I could get hold of some of these products but they are either difficult to get and cost extra expensive or not available to Singapore at all 😦
