Honest Skin Website Review & Korean Cosmetics Haul !

Hey everyone!! Happy December !

I’m extremely happy today.  A few weeks back I received a huge box full of Korean goodies! The products are kindly sent to me by honestskin.com for review purposes. I must tell you those guys at Honest Skin are generous and super amazing.  

HONESTSKIN.COM  is a Korea-based retailer for Korean cosmetics! Honest skin is an online Korean cosmetics store like W2beauty and Jolse but their prices are a lot cheaper!
Korean Cosmetics Honest Skin has lot of offers running at the moment. You can check out the offers on their website here. They don’t offer free shipping. They ship for an affordable price.

I knew that I was going to receive a parcel from Honest Skin but I didn’t expect this much.  I was informed that the shipping might take longer but it took only 10 days to arrive with standard shipping. I was happy to see the quick delivery from their side. No customs has been charged from me and the parcel has a customs declaration form struck to it. I received this box for review and it looks like a subscription box with lot many goodies. He He. I love the variety of products they sent. It has everything that I wanted to purchase myself. I am glad to see brands like Etude House, IOPE, Laneige, 3CE, Its Skin and The Face Shop.
Most of the products are from their clearance sale but I don’t mind at all coz the products are awesome.

So here’s what the parcel looked like. It’s a normal cardboard box.

And here’s what it looks like inside 🙂 There was sooo much bubble wrap and all the products were stuffed inside. After removing the entire bubble wrap, I see an invoice.  Honest Skin is good and professional!  None of the items were damaged. Everything came intact.
