You might want to think twice before shelling out the big bucks for that night essence. Here are four high end dupes you can find in Korea (and purchase online) for a fraction of the cost.
1) Estee lauder advanced night repair vs. Missha time revolution night ampoule
The Missha serum has been said to be almost an exact dupe to Estee lauders advanced night repair. I bought it for my mom when she visited for ₩33,000 (about $29.00 USD) but you can purchase it for $50.00 on sokoglam.com . Compare that to the $91.00 estee lauder serum in the same size, and its a steal.
But how does it compare? Head over to skin and tonics review HERE to read an amazing breakdown of not only pricing and ingredients, but review over months of use as well.
2) Urban decay eye primer vs. Etude house eye primer
Having used the first product, I was shocked and overjoyed with the amazing quality and price of the etude house dupe! When you experience humidity like Korea has in the summer, a good primer is a staple in your routine. Come the price of $24 for urban’s to ₩6,000 ($5.00) for etude’s, and it is even more worth it.
You can purchase it for $7.00 at sokoglam or for $8.00 at memebox.
3) SK ii facial treatment essence vs. Missha time revolution essence.
And Missha does it again, with an affordable and highly rated dupe for a very high end product! Coming in at $110.00 USD, SK ii is said to be well worth the money. However, for between $35-50.00, Missha takes the win again.
Buy it on sokoglam or memebox.

4) makeup forever HD powder vs. Innisfree anti-sebum powder
My best friend, who lives with oily skin, is in love with this dupe, as am I! I love the soft finish and how it helps to keep my makeup in place, without drying out my already dry/normal skin.
Coming in at ₩6,000 ($5.00) vs. $19-34.00, it is a steal!
Buy it from memebox for $9.00. You can also purchase a non loose powder version for $12.00
May your bank accounts stay fuller and your skin look even better!
