How to shop online for Asian beauty in Kenya

How to shop online for Asian beauty in Kenya

Hi, my name is Clare and I love Asian beauty. Ginseng and snail mucin are some of my favorite skincare ingredients and ain't no party like a sheet mask party after a long day in the Mombasa heat. Also, Asian sunscreens for liiiffeeee. 

So how did my love for Asian beauty get so deep when there isn't a single store with their products in Kenya?

Your girl loves to shop online.

For the past 3-4 years, I've got my Asian beauty from two stores, Jolse and Beauty Net Korea.

How now?

Listen.

There's nothing you cannot get online without Visa or PayPal.  I have both, so it can get wild once or twice a year.

How to shop from Jolse

  1. Go to the Jolse site.
  2. Create an account, so that you can be kept up to date on sales and stuff.
  3. Search the site for whatever you are interested in.
  4. Add to cart.
  5. Checkout.
  6. Add your personal and postal details.
  7. Select shipping method.
  8. Select payment method and you will be redirected to Paypal.
  9. If you have a PayPal account, you can use it. If not, you can still pay through a debit or credit card.
  10. You will receive confirmation of payment in your email from PayPal and Jolse.
  11. When the item is being shipped, you will receive an email with the details.
  12. The waiting game begins.
  13. I like to put a reminder on my phone 4 weeks from the delivery date to check Posta coz Posta hasn't bothered to add me to the list of SMS notifications despite how often I tell them!
  14. Check Posta for your goodies. If the package was small enough to fit in the box, you will get it there. If not, you will receive a slip to get it from the parcel office.

How to shop from Beauty Net Korea

  1. Go to the Beauty Net Korea site.
  2. Create an account so you can stay up to date on sales and stuff.
  3. Search the site for whatever you're interested in.
  4. Add to cart.
  5. Checkout.
  6. Choose your preffered shipping method. Please read the instructions in red.
  7. Select payment method. If PayPal, see above. If you chose credit/debit card, you will be redirected to Eximbay.
  8. On Eximbay, add your card details.
  9. You will receive confirmation of payment in your email.
  10. When the item is being shipped, you will receive an email with the details.
  11. Put that reminder in your phone, sit back, relax and wait.
  12. Check Posta and jump for joy when you receive the skincare goodies.
