Did you know that some Innisfree and Etude House beauty products are actually listed and cheaper on iHerb? Mind = blown. We’ll compare prices to show you!
In the months that I’ve spent holed up in my house, I’ve begun to notice my skincare products running a little low, especially since I’ve had more time to actually use my skincare stash. Now that it’s time for me to replenish my supply, let me show you how I save some money on my favourite Korean skincare products.
I’ve talked about iHerb a lot. Mainly because I get a ton of my affordable self-care products and cheaper essential oils from there. Did I mention that some products are cheaper on iHerb compared to Watsons and Guardian too? It really has evolved beyond being a store that you visit just for supplements to boost your immune system.
Ever since I found out that iHerb actually carries my favourite K-Beauty products from Innisfree and Etude House at cheaper prices, my life has never been the same (iHerb, I’m your biggest fan, please notice me).
How Much Can I Save Buying K-Beauty on iHerb?
I can save around ~S$2.20 to ~S$5.60 per K-Beauty product. In some cases, I can be paying almost 20% less than the retail prices! Also, I pay in USD on iHerb because it’s slightly cheaper this way, hence my comparison below will be based on USD prices.
Note that these are based on regular prices accurate to the time of writing!

Toner is one of the most important steps after you cleanse your face. And if you’ve got drier skin, you’ll know how hard it is to find a good toner that doesn’t leave your skin feeling stripped.

Another one for my dry skin homegirls! A good moisturiser is key to waking up to dewy, balanced skin.

On top of having dry, sensitive skin, I also have eczema. So I guess you can say I really won the genetic lottery, huh?
