In this post: large general sites, brand sites

In Korean “화장품” or “뷰티샵” translates to cosmetics and beauty shop.  The advantage of using Korean sites is free, ultra fast delivery times, and the great sales they offer.  Many sites offer next day or even same day delivery in Korea.  If you live outside of Korea I will receive your order faster and send it to you quickly. Ordering through KoreanBuddy allows you to order off of multiple sites and receive everything in one package to save on shipping costs.  I will find the best price for you and pass on all discounts, coupons and deals I find online.

You can order products off many different sites, we will receive them here in Korea and ship them to you in one box saving you the high costs of international shipping.

When you find the items you want, 1. copy and paste the URL into order forms on 2. Copy and paste the product name and 3 let me know the options you want.  If you can’t understand the options, just send me a message over chat.  I will get back to you quickly!
