Where to buy all the top Korean skin care brands in Australia

K Beauty: Where to Buy Korean Skincare Products - Lucy Hale

You can pretty much get your hands on every cult K-beauty product right here in Oz

Beauty Crew Contributing Editor / September 14 2019

Koreans take their skin care seriously (like, 10 steps morning AND night seriously) and it shows in their skin care formulas. They are one of the best in the world for innovation, results, price point (think drugstore prices for many of them) and how enjoyable their products are to use (have you tried one of their bubble face masks? It’s just a good time).

We’re obsessed; the Internet is obsessed. 

And thankfully, getting our hot little hands on all the top Korean skin care brands and products is a cinch here in Australia. Korean skin care in Australia is HUGE and there is a surprising amount of physical and online stores that stock all the cult Korean skin care products you’re constantly hearing about on the Internet and Instagram - like the best-selling toner that rivals Glossier Solution and works miracles for acne (just check out the before and after photos!). 

The usual suspects - Sephora, MECCA, Priceline and Adore Beauty - all stock some great K-Beauty brands, but in addition to them, there are also dedicated Korean beauty stores that are just what you need if you’re ready to take your obsession with Korean skin care to a whole other level.

Here are our picks for where to buy Korean skin care here in Australia.
