Like K-pop, K-dramatization, South Korea has likewise additionally made another anger on the planet with K-magnificence. The 10-12 stage Korean magnificence administration with an accentuation on healthy skin has various takers over the world.
We were acquainted with toners, BB creams, CC creams and now, the most recent — pad establishments — by South Korea, considered the eighth biggest makeup advertise on the planet.
This is the thing that makes Innisfree’s entrance into Bengaluru a major ordeal.

We have been sitting tight to open the store for quite a while. We were sitting tight for the correct area and proper store estimate,” says Mini Sood Banerjee, Senior Manager, Marketing, Innisfree.
Despite the fact that Korean magnificence items are currently accessible on Amazon, Innisfree isn’t accessible on the web based shopping gateway. In India, it has its online nearness on Nykaa and Purplle.com. “Be that as it may, now you can go to a physical store and see it for yourself. That has a considerable measure of effect. A great deal of clients came and understood that we likewise have blessing packs and were so cheerful about it,” bars Banerjee.
Multi day after the dispatch, the brand additionally directed a K-wonder class by a specialist at the store.
As indicated by Banerjee, there is likewise a move in brands which are moving far from utilizing synthetic compounds, towards naturalism. “Furthermore, Innisfree scores there in light of the fact that we are about naturalism, as a brand. Every one of our items consolidate green tea water. Our jeju volcanic pore skincare arrangement is likewise favored in light of the fact that the items contain volcanic bunches from Jeju island.”
All things considered, Ayurveda, India’s antiquated arrangement of wellbeing and excellence nagging characteristic and all encompassing treatment, must stance rivalry? “Truly, it has begun to. This is the reason we have to continue developing to keep our clients snared. We acquainted eyeshadow and eyeliners agreeing with Indian shading tones and requests. While we had pad establishments in a constrained shades, they have turned out with 20 shades for different markets. Koreans never utilize kohl yet we needed to do it for our Indian clients.”
Banerjee underscores that back in Korea, healthy skin overshadows cosmetics. She says that South Korean ladies enjoy 10-12 stages before going out. “What number of do we do here? With cream/lotion or an establishment, we take after a few stages and no more. South Koreans have sparkling skin since they deal with it.”
At the store, clients can discover every one of their top choices from pad establishments, lip-tinted salves, green tea seed serum, super volcanic pore mud cover to orchid enhanced cream and considerably more.
With Innisfree currently intending to open their second store (where they may toy with VR encounter and eco-recuperating music) in another upscale shopping center in Bengaluru, not to overlook Face Shop’s dispatch in Delhi in 2016, South Korean brands’ earnestness about Indian markets is clear.
