Hi Monday. There have already been a few new orders from Korea 2019 I must admit, and many of you wonder if I ever pay customs? Well…
Today I am going to answere some questions about ordering products directly from Korea. I’ll share my personal trusted sellers I use all the time, Korean web shops and information about customs + postal fees when shipping to Europe from Korea.
Pay customs when ordering K-beauty from Korea to Europe?
Several of you wonder if I ever pay customs when ordering from Korea to Sweden. And the answer is, well YES. My experience is that it’s still cheapest to order K-beauty directly from Korea via Ebay. The prices are low and the shipping is completely free when ordering from the best sellers (for example those in my webshop). The cost for customs varies in different European countries, but is usually low as the Korean sellers often mark the parcels with a low value. One tip is to order everything from one single seller and pay for everything at once. Don’t forget to write a message to the seller to send all products in one single package. This way you can avoid as much as possible of the customs fees.
Korean web shops
I have also ordered K-beauty from some of the largest Korean webshops.
JOLSE offers free shipping worldwide but have slightly more expensive prices. JOLSE usually mark their parcels with a low value in my experience, and they always send free samples. JOLSE is also selling K-beauty on Ebay as iamlove-shop. Most recently I ordered from Beautynetkorea and the package was sent incredibly quickly via air mail and DHL. I think the shipping took like 7-8 days. However, the shipping cost was fairly high. I have also heard that you sometimes avoid custom fees when shipping with DHL, but I still had to pay customs with my order. Beautynetkorea also sells K-beauty on Ebay as fplus1 .
A third web shop that I highly recommend is Cosmetic Love. They have very nice prices, a large range of K-beauty products and relatively fast shipping. With Cosmetic Love, there will be a shipping cost, and they usually mark the parcels with a low value. Cosmetic Love usually sends free samples which we all love. When I order a lot of Korean products together with friends I usually order from Cosmetic Love since they have such a nice product range and very low prices indeed.
Me picking up a K-beauty package from a DHL Swip Box. Very handy and quick indeed. I love it! You basically get a code sent to your phone, and then you are free to pick up the parcel whenever it suits you. No
queue or anything like that.
Ordering K-beauty together with friends will save a lot of money on custom fees and postage in my experience.
Some new products from Korea 2019
Here are some new lovely K-beauty products that I’ve ordered in 2019. Do you see any Korean product you are particularly curious about? Already this week I will share several really awesome products for helping lifeless, dull and dry winter skin. It’s much needed in January, don’t you think?

There are incredibly affordable Korean products that really work! This week I’ll share my best tipsโฆ Back to my Korea post:
Sometimes my dear husband walks in on me while unboxing, photographing and filming at my best. With a terrified, obscured glance, he might suggest that I suffer from some kind of shopping problem. Say what! I always answer that some of these products are for my friends which is certainly true. But if you’re a true skin care nerd then you just have to test everything! And so what if I can’t live without skin care, I would never admit that to him any way hihi. I know that he’ll still come sneaking around asking me to borrow some cream or cleanser. How much skin care do you buy every week, every month or every year? Feel free to share your shopping habits in the comments.
