With the increasing popularity of Korean Skincare, the rise of fake and dupe products has become a concerning issue. Many customers end up purchasing fake items, compromising their skin's health and wasting their money. In Blooming Koco we only sell 100% authentic products, and we want to give you tips to identify fake products on other websites to help you make informed decisions when shopping for your skincare routine.

1. The absence or change of Korean characters on the fake packaging

Beauty of Joseon is known for its exquisite formulations and authentic Korean charm. Unfortunately, some sellers have produced counterfeit versions of their products, particularly their bestseller sunscreens. One evident red flag is the absence of Korean characters on the fake packaging. 


To avoid falling victim to these fake items, always cross-reference the product with the official Beauty of Joseon website. Pay attention to any subtle discrepancies in the packaging or product design, as counterfeiters often try to mimic the original to deceive customers. If you have any doubts, reach out to the company's customer service or buy from authorized distributors.

2. Packaging, color variations, unusual design elements

Another product that has been a victim of duplication is the "Round Lab sunscreen." The counterfeit packaging closely resembles the genuine product, making it challenging to spot the difference at first glance.


Reading reviews from verified buyers can also provide valuable insights into the product's authenticity. Be cautious when purchasing from unverified sources, and when in doubt, opt for reputable retailers or the brand's official store.

By being vigilant and following our recommendations, you can safeguard yourself against falling victim to fake products. Remember to verify the packaging, cross-check with the official brand websites like our store. Investing in authentic Korean skincare products ensures not only your skin's health but also supports the brands that work hard to provide you with exceptional skincare solutions. Happy and authentic skincare shopping with us!
