Skinprep? Don't Fret! Stock Up Your Beauty Pantry With These 9 Online Shops
Let's face it - we're all guilty of binge-buying every time we head to Sephora. The makeup and beauty aisles are filled with beguiling packages and, my oh my, the endless possibilities to achieve our beauty dreams.
But apart from Sephora, there are also other sites to help us with our beauty spree. If you're looking to add more tried-and-tested brands to your list, check out the 9 online shops which sell beauty products suited for our Asian skin!
Aprilskin is probably one of the more viral brands in this list - known for their Real Calendula line-up and $4.99 Turn Up Colour Treatment for vibrant hair colouring. Apart from these, this Korean brand carries other make-up and skincare products tailored for sensitive skin.

Because Lee Minho is the brand's ambassador. But also because Innisfree has a great track record for using natural and eco-friendly ingredients directly from Jeju Island. This organic Korean brand is perfect for those looking to steer clear of harsh chemicals or have sensitive skin. Its Green Tea Seed Serum is one of their bestsellers and is said to be the secret to dewy skin seen on Korean actresses.

Fancy a trip down to the derma clinic? Before you go, perhaps you should try our Medicube first. It's a relatively new kid on the block but this brand has been kicking butt for their medical formulation and customised skincare offerings. Some of their bestsellers include the Total Acne Care Set and Zero Pore Pads. Psst... did you know that they are developed by the founders of Aprilskin as well?

It's another K-brand (what are the rest of the world doing??) and this site stocks up different Korean brands that are not even heard of in Singapore. Their prices are affordable with discounts running over many products and brands, so since we can't make a handy trip down Myeongdong now, Althea is the place to go for your K-beauty fix.

Finally... a non-Korean beauty brand. ASOS Beauty hails from London and carries a huge range of beauty products and brands from all over the world - so there's something for our Asian skin. One of the most well-loved products found on ASOS's beauty section is the The Ordinary range, which is an offering of clinical solutions for all kinds of skin conditions:

Guardian & Watsons
I'm sory but we'll lump these 2 together for it's sometimes hard for us Singaporeans to differentiate them. But one great thing about both of them is the range of trending beauty products they offer and enticing promotions.
Hermo is a Malaysian beauty e-commerce platform carrying mainly K- and J-beauty brands. You can find many cult favourites such as Heimish, Pony Effect and Pyunkang Yul there. There is also a sales section to get extra savings and deals.
