    Yes of course! I live in the USA and to tell you the truth it is better than the skincare products we have in America. Ive used some Korean skincare products and boi they have to be the best thing ever for my skin. Way better than western skincare products. My mom also loves using Korean skincare products and it helps her a lot with her skin. Also the reason why I said Korean skincare products are better is because they are well known to take care of their skin. If you do some research you will know that they love taking care of their skin. That’s why you see so many Korean people or Korean celebrities or even kpop idols taking care of their skin because they don’t want their skin to have pimples or anything. Even older generations takes care of it. They are very protective over it.

    well... I actually think that there's not a big difference, maybe only price (?)

    I'd say Korean skincare has better and more advanced technology but that doesn't mean that it will definitely be better for your skin, do try it out though~ Just always remember that different things will always work for different ppl!

    Yes and no. Certain Korean companies may be more advanced than certain American companies, and vice versa. There are so many companies out there trying to hit the market with new and innovative skincare... there is great R&D being done in both countries (and elsewhere!). For example, at home (US) L'oreal is spearheading the 3d printing of human skin. Korean skincare first used snail mucin which is now a highly sought after skincare ingredient. But did you know the Mexicans were also early adopters of snails in skincare? Alphabet creams were developed in Germany.

    Two things that differentiate Korean skincare are...
    (1) prices- Korean skincare is often more affordable due to higher in-market competition.
    (2) incorporation of new, innovative and well-researched ingredients like snail mucin, starfish extract, horse oil, etc.
