Hey guys I hope all is well! I have an exciting post today, I have been obsessed with Korean and Japanese skincare for a while but a recent chat with a friend about sunscreens led me to discover YesStyle, a website that sells K & J beauty from all the top brands plus clothing and accessories etc. I will share the products I got (because that’s why you’re really here) then about YesStyle- shipping, customs charge and a discount code! This will be a long post but it will be worth it!
You guys know I love sheet masks but getting them individually can run my costs up! I discovered that a lot of K & J beauty brands not only have a TON of sheet masks but they also sell them in bulk! I got 3 different masks
Kose Clear Turn Essence Mask Vitamin C* and Clear Turn 30 Botanical Essence in Cotton*
Kose is a very popular Japanese skincare brand and YesStyle have a lot of their products and excellent reviews. The clear turn essence mask (blue box) come in a pack of 30 and a lot of varieties. I obviously chose the Vitamin C pack for brightening. What’s really cool about this pack is that it dispenses like face wipes and I can’t wait to play around with it. Clear Turn 30 Botanical Essence in Cotton (green box) are square cotton pads drenched in 30 diff essences. The green box is for moisture and skin softening. This comes in a pack of 72! I got these squares because I normally re-use my sheet masks on my neck and chest after using it on my face however with these, I can have my sheet mask on plus 2 to 3 squares on my neck and chest! I am so hyped about this SMH. UPDATE- after this post I noticed a small crack in the Kose sheet mask packaging which meant some of the essences had leaked out. When I received the package a few items were wet but I thought it was down to something else. Anyway although the sheet masks were not dried out and still fine to use I messaged Yes Style to tell them what happened. I did not ask for a refund or replacement. They replied the next day apologising for this and said they would send me a replacement for free! A few days later I got a dispatch email and a week later I got my new sheet mask intact! I’m very pleased with their customer service because in the same week I was dealing with Pixi and the service I got from them so appalling!
Mentholatum Rohto Melano CC Concentration Measures Mask*
Another popular J beauty brand, this is a vitamin C sheet pack that comes in a pack of 20! This pack also has Vitamin E to help moisturise the skin. Love the packaging and again it’s small, compact and dispenses like wipes!
This is what led to my obsession lol. I bought two of the most reviewed sunscreens that could be dispatched within 24hrs (more on that later) I got the Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish SPF50* and the Missha Essence Sun SPF 45*. Etude House is a South Korean brand and this particular sunscreen has over 500 reviews. I watched a few videos that say its clear on dark skin but after a quick patch test I am not entirely convinced. Missha is another K beauty brand and this particular SPF is also very popular. Of course full reviews will follow
I have been very interested in PHA after using a few products last year with it. I really liked how it was gentle on my skin and left it hydrated as well. There isn’t a lot of budget friendly options with PHA and infact I have only seen one serum under £20! Some By Mi is a popular K beauty brand and their AHA BHA PHA Miracle line is very popular and most of all affordable! Infact I saw a few J & K beauty brands with PHA products so you already know what will be happening! I got the Miracle Starter Kit* which has mini sizes of the range and perfect for testing the products out. I must admit I am a little disappointed by the sizes but I am adding this to my routine straight away.
Finally I got a pack of Purederm 30 sheets Collagen Eye Zone Mask*. A very popular K beauty item and I am very happy with the price I paid for it! This is cost effective because I was buying individual patches which come up more expensive in the long run.
I made two separate orders (dont ask) and each order came with GWP. I got the Tony Moly Collagen and Hyaluronic acid sheet masks
Shopping on YesStyle
YesStyle was very easy to navigate and they have a TON of J & K beauty brands and items. The items are listed in English (don’t worry) and on the item page it tells you where the brand is from which I think is really great. Another great feature is, once you go on the brand’s main page (which can be accessed via the product page) they show you the brand’s overall customer rating which I found helpful for choosing brands I would like to try! Almost everything is on sale and there is also a free gift offer. You will also receive 5% off your 1st order!
Dispatch– one thing to be careful of, every item has different dispatch times and Yes style make this very clear on the product page. Under the price of the product, they tell you if it ships within 24 hrs or 7 to 21 days. Again very helpful because I was very eager to receive my items ASAP so I only shopped for items that were dispatched within 24 hrs and YesStyle honoured this: so all my items were dispatched within 24hrs!
Shipping– my 1st order was dispatched on 22nd Feb (ordered on 21st) and 2nd order dispatched on 23rd feb (ordered on 22nd), both arrived on 2nd March so about a week and it was premium standard shipping which is free after £30. NO CUSTOMS charge! I wasn’t charged a fee AND YesStyle also list on their website that they will refund any custom fees if you have to pay (obviously show proof) I think it’s in the form of credit but I am not too sure.
I have a discount code! Use QJJJLJ for 5% off your order as a new customer or 2% off your order for current customers
I have been obsessed with YesStyle since I discovered it! I will be getting a lot more Asian beauty from there as they are very expensive via Amazon. The shipping isn’t too bad so I will be ordering in advance if I am running out of something! If you love K/J beauty and are searching for a legit and affordable way to shop it, make sure you check out YesStyle I will be bring reviews of every item once I start using them! Be sure to follow me on Instagram for updates! I will also be sharing an updated skin care routine soon!
