How do I know that the skin care products I ordered from Korea is really genuine? I don’t think anybody would want to try the Korean 10-step skincare routine using fake products from China and have their face fall off. I mean, I don’t even know what it sais on the packaging. Here are some good tips on how to tell between genuine and fake korean products:
- Start before you order. Find trusted online stores and sellers located in Korea and certainly not China. Here is a list of stores and trustworthy sellers offering authentic Korean skin care.
- Read this article on how to find trusted sellers on Ebay.
- If the products are genuine, it should be labeld in Korean on the packaging, not just English.
- The product does always say “made in Korea” on the packaging.
- Fake products don’t always have batch codes and manufacturing dates, look for those on the packaging.
- Google the seller before ordering, for example “seller name + trusted eBay seller?”. You’ll see right away if others have been cheated or if the seller seems trustworthy.
- Google the products you’ve revieved, and compare them with the packaging online. If your products looks the same as the real thing, it’s a good sign that you’ve received genuine korean products.
Spread the word and share
When you buy from eBay, you can almost never be 100% sure. But with good research on the seller, the risk is very small to recieve fake korean products.
