You’ll be hard-pressed to meet someone who hasn’t at least walked through an Ulta or perused the store’s website. Its shelves (both brick-and-mortar and digital) are that perfect mix of drugstore and designer brands, with more sales than we can keep up with. And then there are the unfairly overlooked brands, most of which are also some of the best K-beauty products Ulta has to offer. We need to do better people!
In all seriousness, a Korean Beauty lineup will have your skin looking like a Glossier ad and completely elevate your knowledge of unconventional, but totally effective ingredients like snail mucin and donkey milk. My favorite part of shopping exclusively K-beauty is knowing that I’ll probably save a lot of money because rarely is there a moisturizer or face mask that costs more than a cheap lunch.
Next time you’re in Ulta, I implore you to sample some of these skincare favorites. It’s guaranteed that you’ll buy at least one.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
