January Week 1 K-beauty Skincare Launches

Sunday, January 3, 2016

Hi again, here are the new K-beauty skincare releases for this first week of January 2016.

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 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!

*Also, just a few quick notes
1: The makeup releases were updated with a few products I found while scouting the new skincare releases, so do hop over and see if you've seen them all.
2: I've started marking my best picks, they're designated as **Kinseng Pick** A Kinseng Pick is either innovative, has a good quality/price ratio, has an impressive ingredients list, or hella cute.
