There is always a misconception that products that are more expensive work better. However, this is not always the case.

Generally, Korean skincare is relatively cheaper than Western brands. Koreans take the phrase “prevention is better than cure” very seriously. This means that they believe in preserving the “chok chok” (plumpness) and youthful glow of the skin with mild and organic ingredients- unlike Western skincare where products are introduced to fight against a “problem.” These products usually include powerful actives which are designed to work faster and stronger. So, let’s get into the best budget skincare brands in India!
