January Final Week K-Beauty Skincare Releases

Sunday, January 31, 2016

Hi everyone, I have a quick update for you today on the new K-beauty products that were announced or released over the past week.

Most are freshly announced, or only available on their official Korean websites. These products can be purchased through using a buying service like the one provided by KoreanBuddy.com or Avecko.com. One of the first stores with international shipping to carry new releases is Tester Korea. At times, new releases will start popping up in their store within a couple of days, so make sure to check them out!

I've started marking products that stand out to me as **Kinseng Picks**. A Kinseng Pick is either innovative, has a good quality/price ratio, an impressive ingredients list, or is hella cute.
