      StyleKorean ships Beauty Products to all the countries listed here.

    • make up

      1.     What type of foundation/ cushion should I get for my skin type? 
      Dry skin types should use liquid or cream foundation.
      Normal to dry skin types should use liquid or cream foundation.
      Normal to oily skin types should use oil-free/oil-controlling liquid or powder. 
      Oily skin types should use oil-free/oil-controlling liquid or powder with a matte finish. 

       

      2.     What is the shelf life of makeup items after they have been opened?
      Although it may not listed on the bottle, makeup does have their "expiration date." Exposure to air, bacteria, and light causes makeup to degrade over time. Try to store makeup in a cool, dry, and dark location, and wash hands and brushes/puffs before use to minimize contamination. Other than being less effective, makeup past its shelf life can cause skin irritation and breakouts. Be especially careful about eye makeup, as eyes are more susceptible to infection. It is best to regularly clear out your cosmetics bag. If the item has a smell or has changed color/consistency, it is definitely time to dispose of it. 
      Most beauty products should have a 3-year shelf life starting from their manufacturing date, and should be used within 1 year after being opened. Certain types of products may have a longer or shorter shelf life. Please refer to the specific product details or packaging for further information.

    • skincare

      1. What are the different skincare products for?

      Video serves purely as a guide for general use.

       

      Many brands offer combined products, and different products may have different functions and recommended usage. 

      Read the product information and instructions for each item carefully before application.

      2. What are UVA and UVB? 
      UVA and UVB are ultraviolet rays radiated by the sun that can cause damage to skin. Ultraviolet-A (UVA) are long-wave rays that penetrate deep into skin and cause aging effects such as wrinkles. Ultraviolet-B (UVB) are short-wave rays that cause tanning and sunburns. UVB is more directly linked to skin cancer, but UVA also can bring cancer-causing effects. 

      3. What does SPF mean? And what SPF sunscreen should I use? 
      SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and it is a measure of how long a sunscreen protects against UVB rays. The higher the SPF, the greater the protection. Note, however, that the scale is not proportional: SPF 30 provides around 3% more protection than SPF 15, not twice as much. 

      For normal daily activities, a sunscreen with an SPF of 15-25 is adequate. For those engaging in prolonged outdoor activities, such as swimming and hiking, a higher SPF is recommended. People who have more sensitive (easily sunburned) skin should also seek higher SPF products. Sunscreen should be applied at least 20 minutes before exposure to sun and reapplied every 2 hours and after swimming. Skin is at risk from UV rays even on cloudy days, so it is best to always wear sunscreen when outdoors. 

      4. What is PA?
      PA stands for protection grade. It is a measure used to determine how well a sunscreen protects against UVA rays. There are 3 grades - PA+, PA++, and PA+++ - in that order of protection. PA++ is adequate for normal protection. PA+++ is recommended for extended sunlight exposure and sensitive skin types. 

    • i bought a beauty product that i previously purchased before, but the newer product has a different package or texture. why is that?

      Beauty brands develop new formulas and occasionally change product packaging to follow market trends. As such, a product may change packaging or have a slightly different texture when new formulas or versions are released.

    • how can i check the manufacture date or expiration date of korean beauty items?

      Please refer to the Korean - English translation below and check the dates marked on the product container or outer packaging. Some products may only be marked with manufacture dates, and are expected to expire within one (1) year of opening.
