The Case Full Of Seoul for Those Who Want To Embrace Korean Skincare

The Case Full Of Seoul Best Of Korean Skincare is an 11 piece skincare system featuring popular Asian brands and products like May Coop Raw Sauce which is available at, of all places, Costco. Yup, along with that giant sized coffee creamer and massive bag of tortillas with salsa to feed an army you can now also buy your K-Beauty Skincare. Life is good when you can get skincare at your local discount warehouse.

I’ve been using Japanese makeup and skincare since before I started Musings of a Muse and K-Beauty skincare likely the same amount of years (I was featured in Etude House’s newsletter once which they hand out in stores in Korea!). WAY before any of it became popular and as easy to come stateside as it is now. This was back in the day when you had to ask friends or family to do your hauls for you abroad, visit the country yourself, or rely on secondary sellers and e-bay with huge markups to get what you wanted. Nowadays, it’s as easy as walking into Target, CVS, Sephora, or Ulta to haul any and all of your favorite K-brands (too bad Japanese makeup and skincare hasn’t quite caught on in the US).

I think we’ve reached some sort of pinnacle in Korean beauty if we can now get it in Costcos. This Case Full of Seoul features 11 products to get you started on your Korean Skincare journey for $119 bucks.

You get:

  • May Coop Raw Sauce Mini Duo
  • 9 Wishes Rice Foaming Cleanser
  • One O Seven Core Flex Essential Liquid
  • Urang True Rose Repair Essence
  • Tov Camellia Wrinkle Free Eye Solution
  • May Coop Raw Moisturizer
  • IWLT Protective Base Sun Cream
  • Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer
  • Urang Vitamin Oil Serum
  • IWLT All-in-One Concentrate Treatment Mask

Interesting right? I have a very solid skincare routine down at the moment but this seems fun for people wanting to venture into K-beauty!

Anyone see it in stores yet? I’m curious what it looks like as it appears packaged very nicely!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I got totally turned off to K skin care when I got a sample from IPSY that had snails in it. Or snail something… UM NO! LOL

    OMBFG! I do believe you started me down this rabbit hole, way BITD. Best thing ever for my skin, along with the Paula principles. COSTCO? Now that is mainstream. Anyone who studies ingredients lists recognizes the heavy debt that all skincare cos have to Asian inspiration. When I was your age, the only things we saw ginseng in were tea and supplements. Centella what? Snails? And on, ad nauseam. One revolution I was glad to be part of.

    Hmmmmm, this is tempting. I don’t have a Costco anywhere near me at the moment (they’re in the process of building one nearby, though) so I don’t have a membership, but this looks really good. I’ve thought about buying the 10-step combo skin set that Soko Glam has on their site, which does look a little more appealing to me, but this one is cheaper and has 11 pieces instead of 10… We’ll see what I decide.

  • Christina

    Hmm, I’m tempted. I have a good routine, but it’s a good way to try some new brands. Plus, I’m really curious if the case it comes in is reusable. LOL!

  • Christina

    Never mind, responding to my own question about the case. It’s just a cardboard box. LOL!

    Wow! We really must have reached a pinnacle for K beauty to see it at Costco! I remember reading your blog reviews back when K beauty wasn’t even available at places like target, sephora and ulta. I’d have to find them at my local Asian beauty or grocery stores or online.

    I really do wish Japanese makeup and beauty would become more available. There are so many items I’d love to try! There’s this Japanese mascara and liquid eyeliner that changed my life and I swore I’m never using American mascara ever again. But it’s almost double what it’s worth at my local Asian store.

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL right!? I thought the same thing! I feel like a dinosaur as in those reviewed I’d always bitch about the lack of outlets to purchase the items! I do too! Japanese beauty isn’t something that even broke the surface of the US sadly! I hate that the prices are so crazy jacked up! H-Mart charges like $25 for Sana’s Collagen Mist! It’s like WHAT?!

  • Cathy

    What?!?! They sell Maycoop essence at Costco?!?! I’m surprised coz it’s always out of stock. Yay for me coz I have a Costco card. I wonder if they have it I store?

    • Isabella Muse

      I know right? I think you can check stock by store on their site! don’t quote but I think you can!

  • Debra Voigts

    I know you try new things all the time, but do you have a list of list of your skincare routine items or HG products? Over the years I’ve found we have very similar skin.

  • Kgirl

    Why do you think it is that Japanese skincare/beauty hasn’t caught on in the states? I know that I await the day that a couple of my favorite japanese makeup essentials become as accessible as Tony Moly is now or skinfood.

    • Isabella Muse

      that’s a really really good question! I’d like to think on some level it’s due to bloggers as most bloggers were blogging k-beauty and sites like Memebox cashed on on that success which later leaked into larger retailers like Ulta and Sephora. Japanese skincare/makeup didn’t have as much blog exposure. But that’s just musings on my part, who knows really? The beauty weird is really mysterious sometimes in regards to what does and doesn’t become popular. Why do you think it never caught on!?
