K Beauty in Canada?

Looking for suggestions for oily/combo skin, lots of acne breakouts during my period which sucks. Also I live in Canada, so any suggestions on where to order from without paying an arm/leg.

Re: K Beauty in Canada?

As someone who also has acne prone skin, i usually get my products from Aritaum or YesStyle. Japanese and k-beauty products work best on asian skin I find.

 

To break down my routine I use:

1. a light cleanser (currently using the COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser from walmart)

2. homemade apple cider vinegar toner

3. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 1 oz/ 30 mL serum

4. moisturize with LANEIGE Essential Balancing Emulsion for Normal to Dry Skin 

5. finish with LANEIGE Water Bank Moisture Cream 

 

When my skin acts up i also like to calm it down using:

- First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair® Oat & Hemp Seed Dry Oil 

- Herbivore Jasmine Green Tea Oil Control Toner 

 

I will also use the MEDIHEAL Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask as well!

If you are looking for Korean beauty products, I normally go the the Galleria supermarket near York mills and Leslie. There are some brands like missa and hair products in the supermarket. Outside of the cashier, there is a Korean beauty store if you want to buy Sulwasoo.

@Redzr0seRedhead we have tons of fantastic options in Canada for shipping. You will need to cross reference pricing to find which location has the best price by brand though. Couple options are below

  • Sukoshi mart
  • Pinknblossom
  • Bambeau official
  • Depato goods
  • Skin.to (check them out on instagram their website is still in the works)

They are all located in Canada and have decent shipping minimums. 

 

What's you're current routine?

Re: K Beauty in Canada?

Currently I'm using the Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner, Sephora Brightening Eye Cream, L'Oréal Revitalift Vitamin C Serum

Day Cream is Clarins Reboot Mattifying Hydrating Cream and Night is Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream.

Re: K Beauty in Canada?

@Redzr0seRedhead If you're looking to change up your routine what I'd recommend is normally to nail down your fave cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen and then start changing up your active toners and serums to target additional concerns.

 

If you want some k-beauty options

Cleanser

  • COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
  • Sioris Day by Day Cleansing Gel
  • 9 Wishes Rice Cleanser

Moisturizer

Sunscreen

  • Purito Comfy Water Sunblock (mineral sunscreen more matte finish)
  • Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun (chemical sunscreen more dewy finish)
  • Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence

 

One other thing to note is K-Beauty products tend to have lower % of chemical exfoliants so if you are looking for high powered AHA/BHA their regulations don't allow for it.
