Hello Federica! Which of these online seller have you personally tried? I am planning to move to Italy and I want to know which online store can be trusted 🙂 Thank you.
Hello Brij! I bought on yesstyle, Kollection k and q-depot, every time with no problems at all! I tried Wishtrend as well, but I didn’t buy cosmetics! Hope it can be helpful!
mi chiamo Irene, ho 36 anni e mi sto appassionando alla beauty coreana.
Sono animalista e non utilizzo niente che sia testato sugli animali. In questo senso non sono ancora riuscita a trovare una lista affidabile che indichi quali brand siano cruelty free o meno.
I siti più convenienti e che offrono più brand sembrano essere quelli asiatici (jolse, yesstyle ecc.); i brand sono una marea e ne spuntano sempre di nuovi. La scelta nei negozi “fisici” italiani invece è più ristretta e “limitata” ai marchi mainstream.
I packaging (e talvolta anche gli ingredienti) dei prodotti a marchio Beauty of Joseon, HANYUL, Innisfree, Sooryehan, MISSHA, Sulwhasoo, SHANGPREE, The History of Whoo mi intrigano molto, ma non sono sicura che siano adatti alle mie esigenze etiche.
Puoi aiutarmi a orientarmi?
Grazie in anticipo
Ciao Irene, tra i brand che ho provato posso segnalarti Benton e eNature, su questa lista però puoi trovare anche altri prodotti:
Io acquisto sempre su yesstyle e questo sito indica sempre quali brand e prodotti sono cruelty free, ho appena controllato e infatti la crema contorno occhi di Benton che uso io lo è, ti lascio il link anche a quest’altra lista:
Spero di esserti stata utile 🙂
