If you live within the western part of the world and have ever set foot into exploring and experimenting with Korean or Japanese brands, you may find yourself disadvantaged in terms of finding legitimate and trustworthy sites or stores to purchase your items (at a reasonable price no less!) Founded by the beautiful @aliciayoon212 , Peach & Lily (P&L) strives to bring a slice of the Asian skincare and beauty market right to your front door.
P&L offers a premium selection of high-quality Asian beauty products that have been thoroughly tested to provide you with the best of Korea. The site itself is organized in a way to adapt to your skin concern whether it’s hyperpigmentation, sensitivity, dryness, pores, fine lines etc.
Korean beauty is an innovation that is well-advanced in terms of skincare when compared to the rest of the world. Many of the newer creations in the western world take inspiration from Korea – just take a look at the BB Cushions and Cushion foundations. If you find western skincare to be a tad too harsh on your skin, you may want to examine some alternatives from the korean market as they promote gentler formulas along with a plethora of unique ingredients that have never been used before. Who knows, maybe snail mucin is what your skin wants 😉
My experience with ordering from Peach & Lily is limited but I find first impressions are the most long-lasting. I placed my order during their Shangpree mask promotion (P&L is such an inspiring company simply because they support many good causes and often run promotions) and ordered 1 set of 5 Gold Premium Modeling “Rubber” Masks, 3 boxes of Black Premium Modeling “Rubber” Masks and the highly-coveted Gold Black Pearl Hydrogel Eye Mask (which was unfortunately not included in the promotion but I had to get it nevertheless!) I was also interested in trying the Silver Premium Modeling “Rubber” Mask but it was sold out.
The prices on the site are in USD, which when converted to CAD make quite a large difference with the Canadian Dollar (CAD) all-time low at the moment but it was worth it. I placed my order December 4th, 2015 with the shipping confirmation December 8th, 2015 and arrival December 16, 2015 (DHL International Services). The contents came well-packaged and virtually no damage was made (minus the open boxes which I attribute to customs etc.)
P & L ships to the following destinations: Albania, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, and United Kingdom
Overall, I am satisfied with my Peach & Lily experience. The shipping times were average (the Holidays are a busy time so the timeframe is definitely understandable), the shipping rate to Canada is decent (if you live in the Continental US, there is free shipping options), the prices of the products are very reasonable and the site was very easy to navigate.
The next time you’re in the market for some Korean beauty, why not drop a visit to www.PeachandLily.com ? You won’t be disappointed.
