K-beauty quarantine shopping guide I Get your products fast!

K beauty online store guideQuarantine already sucks but I’m not going to be out protesting to “fight for my freedom”, at least if you know what is good for you.  The government is advising everyone to stay home and yes, I know it is frustrating but this isn’t anything that we can’t beat.  In the meantime, I know our happy places is skincare.

So to combat the slow overseas shipping, I have compiled all the stores I’m familiar with and put them into lists depending on where the stores are based.  Overseas shipping at the moment is mostly depending on DHL which can get quite expensive.  I will also try my best to find you guys coupon codes or any other shipping discounts that are mentioned on the website.

Links with a * mark are affiliated.  Affiliated links are tracked links which gives me a small percentage of the sale and costs you nothing extra!

Happy shopping everyone :).Amazon*Kbeauty online stores in USA
