Ask the Squad: What Are Your Fave, Must-Try K-Beauty Products (Now Available in 3 Days)

BeautytapASAP free 3-day shipping is here! Our specially curated selection of K-beauty best sellers in the U.S. is now available for super fast shipping, so we had to know — what are you adding to your cart? We grill the Squad for their picks and dying-to-try’s.


If you’re any kind of skincare lover, you know the drill by now: You’re patting in your favorite essence or toner, basking in the dewiness as your skin thirstily laps up every last drop. You’re admiring your glow in the mirror as you reach for your next layer when … OMG. You’re out of product and you forgot to reorder. You hastily finish your routine, run to your computer, and log in to your fave online K-beauty shop. You add to cart. You scramble to fill your cart to meet your free shipping minimum. (Do I really need another lip tint?) You check out. And then you wait. And wait. And wait.


Meanwhile, your skin is crying from lack of [fill in your fave, staple, must-have, HG ingredient here].


Yeah, we know. We’ve been there. Our skin has been there. We feel your pain.


So we decided to do something about it. We researched the best-selling K-beauty products in the U.S. We got them into a U.S. warehouse. And we’re now shipping them to our U.S. customers. Within 3 to 5 business days. And FOR FREE.


3-day shipping


BeautytapASAP is possibly the first ever express shipping option in K-beauty that’s absolutely free — no memberships, no minimums. That’s right — COSRX Snail Mucin Essence now at your door in three to five business days. It’s pretty groundbreaking, if you ask us, and it’s safe to say we’re super excited about it.


So excited, in fact, that we asked the K-Beauty Squad:


Q. What are you going to get through our new BeautytapASAP free 3-day shipping?  


Director of marketing Jude:


Mediheal x BTS Mask Sheet Special Set Hydrating Moisture Care: Even if this box set didn’t have BTS plastered all over it and a set of BTS photocards inside, it would still be 100% worthy. The set comes with five of Mediheal’s best hydrating masks and five of the brand’s best anti-acne, overall calming masks. The clingy and high quality material of these masks holds the perfect amount of soothing, plumping hydration.


23 Years Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask: These are pretty much the only modeling masks I care to use. They give a mild and refreshing cooling sensation while on, stay moist (and thus continue to moisturize skin) for quite a long time, and peel off cleanly when done. They leave my skin looking super fresh, firm, and bright.


23 Years Old Cocoon Willow Silky Mask: These sheet masks offer triple benefits. The first benefit is leaving my skin deeply nourished and even-toned with lasting firmness. The second benefit is extending those benefits all the way down to my chest, thanks to the neck flap. The third benefit is scaring the crap out of anyone who sees me with one on, because these don’t have a mouth hole.


Of course I can’t not mention COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, hands down my favorite snail product for healing my skin and giving it maximum resilience!

Contributing editor Coco:


I’m going with the 23 Years Old Rose Gold masks. I absolutely love the thick, cushion-y sheet that is like a comfy blanket for your face. I also love that I don’t have to talk to anyone when it’s on thanks to the no mouth hole thing, plus yay for my lips getting treated!


Contributing editor Sheryll:


Can I say everything from COSRX?!? Hahaha!


But really, the COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol is one of those products that doesn’t make any sense and the name is kinda ridiculous, but if you have oily, acne-prone skin, it’s a lifesaver. That propolis-AHA-BHA combo is undefeated and sooo good when you want to to exfoliate but don’t want to overdo it.


I also love the Klairs Supple Preparation Toner because it’s easily one of the best hydrating toners I’ve used. I started using it again after writing my review, and it legit makes my skin feel like butter. A miracle!


The COSRX PHA Mist is another excellent choice. I love to use it to rehydrate my face after washing it, and I also keep another bottle in my gym bag to use after I cleanse my skin to help keep it hydrated before I go home to “really” wash my face.

Associate editor & social media manager Ruth:


Klairs Supple Preparation Toner: This toner lives up to its name — preparing my skin with supple hydration for the rest of my routine! It’s great for a multi-skin method and it is very gentle on my semi-sensitive skin. This was probably one of the first Korean toners I tried and I used it to the very last drop.


COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser: So much has been said about this holy grail cleanser — need I say more?! It’s my go-to cleanser, morning and night, for cleansing all the impurities away without ever leaving my skin feeling stripped or dry, which is SO important especially for my dry skin.


I’m keeping my eye on the DR.FROG ampoules! I’m a sucker for anything in those gorgeous, frosty-matte, pastel-colored dropper bottles.


3-day shipping


Social media intern Miranda:


Mediheal X BTS Mask Sheet set, and not just for the photocards. Mediheal has some of my favorite masks on the market because they’re always super saturated and fit like a GLOVE. The hydrating ones are particularly good and perfect for whenever I’m too exhausted for a full-on nighttime routine. Just tone, mask, moisturize, and sleep!


COSRX PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream is — in my humble opinion — COSRX’s best cream. It’s soft, it spreads nicely, and has PHA, one of my holy grail acids. I wear this to bed, and it’s just as nourishing and rich as an expensive night cream.


COSRX Two in One Poreless Power Liquid has smoothed out my skin so much! I get really irritated, deep acne under my jaw (thanks, PCOS) and have found this to be effective in not only clearing but softening the area. I find a lot of “clarifying” products and acids to be too drying or aggressive on my combo skin, but this does the job without any of the negatives.


Editor in chief Anna:


I’m jumping on the Mediheal X BTS Mask Sheet set train because I hoard tea tree masks like it’s going out of style for anytime my skin decides to annoy me (read: every month). Plus I get brownie points for being the cool aunt when I surprise them with these BTS photo cards.


On Coco’s recommendation, I’m dying to try the 23 Years Old Rose Gold masks. (Slap “rose gold” on anything — skincare or otherwise — and I’m all over it.


And I’m with Ruth on those DR.FROG ampoules. I’m going for the pink Aqua Ceramide one for its 80% flower water complex. How swoon-y does that sound?



Yes, BeautytapASAP free 3-day shipping is only available in the U.S. for now (I knowww … we’re sorry, rest of the world! 😭). But don’t worry — this is our inaugural fast shipping program, so you never know where we’ll show up next! 😉


What products are you coveting from free 3-day shipping? What else do you want to see available in 3-day shipping? And where should we offer BeautytapASAP next? Let us know in the comments below!





I made my first beautytapASAP order this week and even though I only had one type of sheet mask in my budget I am SO excited to get them so quickly. :)


Non of the 23 years old products are found anymore. Is the link to this brand broken? Or are you not selling it anymore?


Please have a free shipping deal to all the Asian countries soon! Hey korea! We are your neighbours! So pls be generous to us as well! ❤️❤️🙏🏽


I went for the COSRX BHA a-sol and it was super fast! Most of the things I needed to replace weren’t available for 3 day shipping but I’m not mad about it knowing the goodies in the normal processing boxes are coming! So great to have some options for free shipping in 3-5 days and that the others still come bearing gifts 😄


no way you can cover canada with this warehouse? so close, yet so far.


I'm so glad that so many cosrx products are available in this program! Thank you! I hope to see more of their products in the future. Those BTS x Mediheal masks are on their way in the mail, so I can't wait to try them!

One thing that I'm surprised by is the amount of AprilSkin products. I haven't tried any myself, but all the reviews I've seen have been less-than-favorable. Are there any specific products from them that y'all would recommend? My curiosity is piqued.

Oh!! And in the future, I'd love to see some sunscreens added to the program!... Read more


I agree! I always have enough hydrating/moisturizing products around that I can wait a while for replacements of specific products, but I don't want to run out of sunscreen or cleansers!


Please bring 3 day express shipping to Australia!! I will love you forever and ever!


You all should add Sandawha and Earth’s Recipe to the three day shipping ☺️


i second Sandawha!


Yes! Also Purito
