Beyond the many questions we get about Korean beauty, what products are best for different skin concerns, and learning the basics (i.e. the order you should do your skincare regimen in, etc.), we also receive many questions about what Korea is like on-the-ground. And as fellow beauty junkies, we get it. Even on the Peach & Lily team, many of us have never gone to Seoul, and we want to know everything about a city so big on beauty, the industry has its own Times Square (myeongdong) and skin clinics line the streets with the frequency of Starbucks and Duane Reades in NYC. We get questions on topics that range from K-beauty to K-pop, Korean food to Korean history, and Korean fashion.

We wanted to be able to answer some of these questions in a more “IRL” fashion, and thus this video series was born. Introducing our #SeoulBeautyTripping video series! Whenever Alicia goes to Korea now (and her trips are pretty frequent), you'll get a recap of it via video (and of course, via our snapchat, @PeachandLilyIRL for real-time coverage,and Alicia’s personal IG). The videos will feature many exciting special guests (and even hosts)! And while K-beauty is a big focus, you'll see everything from the food to the culture to the latest lifestyle trends.

We'll also be launching new product picks from Alicia's trips back as a capsule #Seoulbeautytripping collection, so you can shop what she's seeing and curating for Peach & Lily almost immediately!

Keep an eye on your inbox as some of these very launches are coming pretty soon. To say that there are some amazing new launches coming soon is an understatement! Alicia—can we say this? As we grow as a company, we’re always working to lessen the time between innovative launches in Korea becoming available to you. These new launches include some of Seoul’s current cult-favorites, beloved by celebrities and the most beauty-savvy locals.
We’d love to know what you want to see! Please do leave us your comments on what you want to see in Korea next time!
