Anyone know how long testerkorea takes to ship?

Forever?

 

Seriously, my first order took 10+ days to ship and the second took 9 days to ship (just shipped today)

 

Don't order from them if you want something fast!

What do Asian females have and others don't? There are few differences to take into account. Teams of scientists and dermatologists who have studied eight Asian cities (Sendai, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; Guangzhou, Shanghai and Harbin, China; Calicut and New Delhi, India; and Manila, Philippines (representative of Malay skin) have some interesting findings to reveal:

1. Hyperpigmentation (dark spots) has an earlier onset than wrinkles and laxity (loss of firmness) on Asian skin (compared to Caucasians).

2. The Japanese have the lightest skin tone; thus, Japanese women have low melanin and skin redness. The Indians have the darkest skin tone, and therefore high melanin content and skin redness.

3. Asian skin has a better behavior during cooler months; because of reduced sun exposure, Asian women's skin has better biomechanical properties such as elasticity and structures (collagen).

4. Skin becomes yellowish with age and this is more visible in Chinese and Korean skin than other racial groups.

5. Japanese skin has the best condition (least deterioration with age), while Indian skin has the worst.

Hmmmm, I really think it has to do with the person's diet.

I ordered the Lucky Sample pack from eopenmarket.com, came to $19.30 with shipping and handling. Love that I can try many bb creams. Fun package to go thru.

Welcome to the vast world of Korean beauty! It's all downhill (or uphill maybe?) from here! LOL I really love Lioele for skincare. Their sleeping pack is AMAZING http://www.beauteque.com/lioele-v-line-waterdrop-sleeping-pack/

 

I also really love My Beauty Diary sheet masks, Skin79 BB Creams, The Etude House "Skin Malgem" lines of products, I seriously could go on forever!

 

Also welcome to Makeuptalk! :D

Hi all...

Months ago I take a clinical trial with Jarvis Cosmetics; their products also korean... principle behind Jarvis Cream & Serum is TKM(Traditional Korean Medicine).... they say that their product helps in 90% skin problems and I also feel it is good...

 

Jarvis Cream helps skin invulnerable framework to be at the most healthiest condition and Jarvis Serum enter through skin; actuate the dead platelets with the goal that the blood can stream unreservedly once more.

 

I am sure it will be helpful for those who are looking for korean products...

Does anyone know what brand this is? It was in episode 12 of Get It Beauty. It's a lip product and I find it so interesting that I want one.

This convinced me to go ahead and buy one of these! I'm new to the Korean makeup market, so this seems like an awesome way to try lots of stuff out. So excited!

I can't get the http://beautynetkorea.com/ page to work in either firefox or IE. it is all broken up and distorted.. does anybody else have this issue? I really want to browse their stuff.

It's working fine for me on Firefox. It's a tad bit slow, but still useable. Strange! (And I shouldn't have gone on there because now I see a million things I want! LoL)

I purchased the following from YesStyle.com today.  the Korean Beauty Sample kit looks like this (the bag color and products vary)

 post-103689-0-90825800-1404591817.jpg
 
 

Missha Creamy Latte Chocolate Cleansing Foam
It's Real Manuka Honey Mask [10 pcs]
Citronnelle Mask (5 sheets) [5 sheets]
Korean Beauty Sample Starter Kit [1 set (8 samples + 1 bag)]
Korean Herbal Mask - Hydrating (Cordyceps Sinensis) [23ml x 5 sheets]
Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay Foam Cleanser [1 pc]
Water Sleeping Pack_EX (Travel Size) %5B10ml%5D
Free Gift - Beauty Sample [1 pc]

  

I am pretty happy with yesstyle and beautynetkorea. yesstyle gives you discounts based on your style points - which aren't all thru purchases. For each product you purchase, you can review and get 100 style points. I made bronze, which gives me 3% off plus I got a 10.00 coupon. I will be hitting the next level soon, which is 5% off and 2 10.00 coupons :) Plus free shipping with orders over 25.00

 

memebox - take note on the shipping costs....FREE at 25.00 - always.  No promo code needed

    • Thank you Edith
    • You are a very thoughtful husband. I'm not an expert on makeup. But I love shopping. I was impressed with Sisley brushes, which are made by Raphael. Raphael has been a master maker of brushes for artists since 1793. The big department stores will give you an extra gift with purchase now too. For example, if you buy from Neiman Marcus, you can get a nice bag filled with beauty samples for free. That's what I would do.  I also love Trinny London. The T Kit is very unique, compact and great for travel or purse. Estee Lauder has a beautiful limited edition set called Brushed by Fame. The lovely white marble design might look pretty with your bathroom decor.  Good luck with your purchase!
