Ayy!!! It’s been an awesome week for discovering new kbeauty deals.^^ Read on and consider checking out the latest episode of The Snailcast, which we did with Kerry from the legendary Korean beauty blog Skin & Tonics. I don’t know if it’s due to springtime taking hold of New York or what, but I feel so freaking positive–I hope you’re living well, too!
Deals to Check Out
I have some HOT deals from Korea-based shops to share this week, woot!
First off, there’s a new kbeauty site shipping out of Korea, Vuty Design. They re-opened after being closed for a bit and right now they’re offering free shipping on orders of $20 or more. I placed an order with them and had a relatively good experience; one item was sold out, but they quickly refunded me and let me know. One small item was missing from my order (I ordered two of the same nail removers, not a normal thing, so I wasn’t shocked by the oversight), but they refunded me immediately when I contacted them and they offered to ship a replacement to me. Now for the really good: my order was shipped within 24 hours and it reached me 11 days after I ordered. I actually found this store because I was looking for a new Aritaum Modi gel polish; their selection for the brands they carry is really good, and I plan on making full use of this shipping promotion.
Global Hyundai Hmall is offering a crazy promotion that I learned about from Labellevie245’s Instagram–all new customers will receive a 20% off coupon and all items that individually cost 30,000 won or more ship free via EMS (super fast) shipping. What that means, as my Snailcast colleagues and I discovered while perusing the options, is that you can’t just make a cart that totals 30,000 won; each item that you want to ship free must cost 30,000 won. This cut down on the options, but I eventually landed on something luxurious that I’ve been wanting to try since reading Fiddy’s review: Miss Flower & Mr Honey Cream with a freebie hydrogel and some samples. With my 20% new customer coupon the whole thing cost $27.88 shipping. GET ON ME.
- KoreaDepart’s LJH Leejiham sale.
- Global Interpark’s free shipping page. Combine with the 10% PayPal discount code (PP-INT-10). Global Interpark does not ship items over 1kg on the free shipping page to the U.S.–thank you to Ellina for this tip! New this week: Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack, a really good mask for battered, dry skin.
- 11ST has extended the 20,000 won-off EMS shipping coupon with a 50,000 won purchase. See my post on Facebook for more about 11ST.

Discount Codes for Not Just New Customers
These codes only work for one person before they’re gone, since they’re from my own stash.
The blog earned these codes due to people using my referral links^^ to make a first purchase at certain shops (THANK YOU!); think of this as sharing the love back.
Codes are obviously first come, first…discounted and I’d appreciate if they’re not taken out and shared elsewhere since they’re from my personal stash and meant to be a thank you for my patient blog readers (but linking to the post is fine if you want to share).
Memebox: $10 off ZM39CEHX
Soko Glam: $10 off 3d5705938ba5-49easa2a
