If you have yet to pledge allegiance to the Korean beauty gods, we’re here to tell you that K-beauty is a total game-changer. The truth is, as much as we love the incredible benefits and the adorable packaging, K-beauty is addicting, and often it can be hard to know exactly where to buy it. Of course you can stock up on your these beauty goodies online at places like Amazon, eBay, and directly from the brands’ websites, but sometimes it can be hard to know exactly what you’re getting, plus the products can take forever to arrive. This is why we’re here to share with you 6 places that you can shop K-beauty right here in Toronto.
Keep this list of 6 places to buy the best K-beauty in Toronto handy for your next skincare shopping spree!
Holika Holika has been killing the K-beauty game since 2010 and has become a popular spot to stock up on makeup, skincare, and hair products since it opened its retail shop here in Toronto. The colourful store is filled with all your typical K-beauty products like BB creams, sheet masks, cleansers, and sleep masks. But there are, of course, a few unique items like a repair cream filled with snail slime (seriously!) that is known to give you a serious glow.
For the beauty buffs that love natural brands and products, Innisfree is definitely a must-try. This popular Korean beauty brand carries products that are bursting with natural benefits from Korea’s Jeju Island. The brand just opened its first Canadian location in Yorkdale Mall and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The brand is known for a “plant-to-bottle” philosophy and its affordable prices. It’s here that you’ll find bath and body products, ranging from skincare to haircare, fragrances, beauty tools, makeup, and even sunscreen.
Another great natural K-beauty brand is The Face Shop, which has multiple store locations in the city. Rooted in its core principles of naturalism, value, and variety, The Face Shop is passionate about providing the best beauty assortment for natural beauty junkies everywhere. Here you’ll find all your beauty cabinet essentials like suncare, cleansing products, masks, skincare, makeup, and accessories.
Think of Sukoshi Mart as your one-stop-shop for all your Asian essentials. While you’ll find things like Japanese snacks and stationery, most importantly you’ll find a massive range of Korean skincare and beauty products at very reasonable prices. We’re talkin’ face masks for $3, lotions, lip balms, cleansers, and more!
With multiple locations in the city, M Brand Shop is the place to go for all your K-beauty needs.

And of course, no beauty list could be complete without Sephora, which just so happens to carry a huge assortment of cult-favourite K-beauty brands. Sephora has devoted an entire section to Korean skincare, which makes it an easy place to stock up on the essentials (and blow your paycheque, if you’re asking us). Some of the top brands the beauty giant carries include Laneige, Belif, Saturday Skin, Dr. JART, and Glow Recipe to name a few. And with oh so many locations in the city, you know you’re always steps away from a store.
