Sephora has featured a dedicated K-beauty section for the past year or so, Nordstrom just had a successful temporary K-beauty shop , and Target has been selling K-beauty (a bit under the radar) for several years. Now CVS is the latest retailer with arguably the largest reach to embrace K-beauty. The place where you buy Q-tips and Tylenol is now selling over 100 K-beauty products in 2,100 of its 7,900 stores, as well as online . The drugstore chain tapped Alicia Yoon, the founder of K-beauty e-commerce site Peach & Lily , to bring in products from seven different brands. (She also has K-beauty shops in a couple of Macys stores , and has helped to curate mask bars in Barneys .) With everything from classic sheet masks for a dollar and snail slime-based skincare, this is really going to be 1) a coup for people who already love K-beauty but have a hard time finding it, and 2) a great, inexpensive introduction to shoppers who may not have heard about or tried it. Theres a store finder here , so you can figure out if your local CVS will carry the lines. Heres a bit of background on each of the brands four of which are sold exclusively through CVS in the US and the products you should check out from each one. (Time to put all those $5 register coupons CVS is always handing out to good use.)

The brand also just launched the Brilliant Tone Up EGG Cream ($28.99) (no link live yet), which contains the oil from egg yolks.
