Guide to affordable K-Beauty Brands

Korean skincare can be quite expensive, it all depends on the brands and the shipping. For this week’s article we gathered our favourite Korean beauty brands that are both affordable and work wonders on the skin. Let’s start this off. 


If you have been reading my beauty articles you might have noticed that I am a big Innisfree fan. Their products work really well with my skin type (oily-acne prone), and they all are fairly reasonably priced.

In Amazon UK, you can find a pack of 14 masks sheets for £14 and one of my current favourites the Orchid Eye cream for just £24.

In international websites such as YesStyle, the prices range from €3 to €80 for full sets, so make sure to check it out.


This brand is well known for having products that work well with oily and acne prone skin. I haven’t personally used them, but I have heard great things about many of the products, especially the Pimple Pads.

In YesStyle, you can find their products ranging from €4 to €38. Good deal right?

Nature Republic

Nature Republic is also one of the top brands. One of my favourites is the Aloe Vera Soothing gel and moisturiser. This product feels great on the skin.

The face masks are also really good. I’m particularly a fan of the Aloe Vera and Pomegranate ones. They both have a nice cooling texture and scent. The prices start off in YesStyle from €4 for sheet masks up to €100 for the special edition of the Snail Solution Set.


Klairs has an incredible range of skin care and it is also vegan and cruelty free. The moisturisers have great reviews and so do the toners and calming gels. The prices range from €4 for masks to €40 for essences (Source: YesStyle).


I have heard just good things about Laneige; the brand is not as inexpensive as the previous ones but it is totally worth the extra euros. The most popular items are the sleeping masks and the moisturizers. The prices range in YesStyle from € 3 for minis to €50 for creams. 

Let us know if you have used any products from these brands and which one was your favourite.
