The first ever Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week Event has just launched, and given the fantastic cause it is connected with, plus the fact that Wishtrend brings you all sorts of awesome offers on their cruelty free in-house brands, I felt that this is worth writing about a bit more in-depth on the blog! So – here is everything you need to know about the Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week and its amazing offers!
If you have been following my blog and my podcast for a while now, you already know how much I love Wishtrend and its in-house brands Klairs, By Wishtrend and I’m From. All three provide a whole range of amazing, gentle and innovative products. And, well, my adoration for Cosrx, which Wishtrend has been selling even before it became such a globally recognised brand, is equally well-documented!
One of the best things about all four of these K-beauty brands, apart from the amazing quality of their products, is the fact that they are all cruelty-free. I know that finding cruelty-free brands from Korea is a bit of a struggle sometimes, depending on how strict your own code of ethics is, and so I’m super happy that an influential Korean beauty company such as Wishtrend is putting a special focus on this issue with their Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week.* There is a whole bunch of awesome stuff on offer for this week, as well as a truly worthy animal rights cause being supported. Let’s go through what you can expect from the Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week one by one…
Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week – Shopping for a Great Cause!
Is there anything more satisfying than being able to get great bargains AND support a great charity? This is why I was so excited to receive news about Wishtrend’s Cruelty Free Brand Week. See, not only are a total of 7 Wishtrend brands that are all cruelty free put into focus throughout the week, Wishtrend is also donating parts of their proceeds from this event week to the Beagle Rescue Network in Korea. Their Stay Beagley Badges,* which only cost 4$, also help fund this charity. I did not know this, but Beagles are actually one of the main animals used in animal testing – unimaginable!
So, when it comes to bargains for Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week, the first pleasant surprise is that for each of the seven cruelty free brands that the event highlights, you receive a special discount on their entire range of up to 35%, depending on the brand.
The seven brands in focus for the Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week and their individual offers:
- Klairs* = 20% off all products!
- By Wishtrend* = 20% off all products!
- Jungle Botanics* = 25% off all products!

Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week – My Top 5 Picks
So you may feel a little overwhelmed about which products or skincare packages to pick during Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week, given the awesome discounts offered. Thus, I thought it would be helpful for you if I sift through the offers and give you my personal top 5 picks during this sales event! I’ll admit that I am focusing mostly on my personal faves from Klairs, By Wishtrend, I’m From and Cosrx, mainly because these are the brands best known to me from experience. Alright, here we go:
The Cosrx sleeping masks are some of the best K-beauty products I know, and especially the Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask* is one of my all-time favourites. I use it predominantly as a sealing sleeping mask, but many people with drier skin types apparently also do well using this as their daily moisturiser. It is rich, yet doesn’t feel sticky or too mineral-oil heavy like so many sleeping masks do.
The Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask* has a more gel-like texture compared to the creamy Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask, and works especially well for oily or acne-prone skin types. It contains honey and propolis, both excellent humectants that also have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
This set of both masks costs 20,80$ instead of the usual 32$, so only 10,40$ per mask. Highly recommended, especially since the Cosrx Rice Mask is currently sold out at most online shops.
This trio was part of my first Wishtrend offer ever, and I am still as fond of these three K-beauty gems as I was back then. The trio consists of a) the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner* (read my German review!), b) the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop* serum (read my German review!), and c) the I’m From Vitamin Tree Water-Gel* (yep, I also reviewed this in German).
All three products are excellent for sensitive skin (unless you have trouble with essential oils, which are present in both Klairs products) and work particularly well for oily combo skin types thanks to being hydrating, yet very lightweight. The I’m From Vitamin Tree Water-Gel is a wonderful moisturiser for summer – so cooling, ultra moist and gentle in hot, humid weather.
The Moist Glow Reciple Trio costs 35,71$ instead of 54,94$ – that’s a 35% discount!
Ok, so I am not fond of the whole “glass skin” trend, as I have made clear both in a blog post as well as a podcast episode on skin care trends for 2018. However, I can easily ignore the whole glass skin marketing around this skin care package with three great Wishtrend products, two of which are pretty much my all time holy grails in terms of sensitive skin products!
The Glass Skin Recipe Trio consists of a) the Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner* (read my English review), b) the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask* (I reviewed this a while ago in English), and c) the I’m From Magnolia Wake Essence, which I haven’t tried myself yet, but heard good things from other bloggers.
This trio should be perfect for anyone with sensitive skin that tends to be dull-looking and dehydrated. I think the products probably work best if you have combo skin, since drier skin types may find the products a tad too lightweight.
The Glass Skin Recipe Trio costs 49,98$ instead of 76,89$ – a discount of 35%!
For some reason I never got to review this amazing wash-off mask, even though I love it so much! The I’m From Honey Mask is a true K-beauty classic, and for good reason: it consists of 38,7% real honey, which means it smells and looks exactly like honey – so creamy and yummy that you will be highly tempted to try and taste it (my very urgent request here is: please resist the temptation!).
This mask is super hydrating and softening, and it feels so gentle that most skin types do well with it. You can leave the Honey Mask on for over an hour, and it will still not feel drying – that’s how moisturising and creamy it is! After I use this mask, I have the most gorgeous “baby skin”, so soft and smooth, truly wonderful.
If you have been hesitant about buying this mask due to the rather steep price, Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week is the perfect time to finally try it out. The I’m From Honey Mask only costs 20,00$ during the event week – that’s a discount of over 47% compared to the regular price of 37,90$!
The Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream is another one of those holy grail products I can’t live without, with a multipurpose approach that has made it pretty much a staple in my routine especially during summer.
The 2 Step Delay Aging Set offers both the Midnight Blue Calming Cream* and the peptide-containg, deep-blue Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop* serum in a package deal perfect for fans of these soothing, calming and ultra gentle products. I wouldn’t personally call the Midnight Blue Calming Cream “anti-aging”, but if you, like me, often suffer from redness and “angry” skin (inflamed and ready to break out any minute!), then I can wholeheartedly recommend this cream. It works best as either a spot treatment overnight or as a sleeping pack, but you can also mix it with your daily moisturiser or serum. The blue colour doesn’t really show on the skin.
When I initially reviewed the Klairs Blue Youth Activating Drop on my blog (in German), I was a bit “meh” about it, to be frank. However, this deceptively simple peptide treatment started to win me over after roughly two months, when I noticed its brightening and overall smoothing effect on my skin. I was heartbroken when my bottle died a premature death thanks to me spilling its contents on my bed sheets. Sigh.
The 2 Step Delay Aging Set costs 40,88$ instead of the usual 54,50$, which means you are getting a 25% discount. Highly recommended!
Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week Event – the Bottom Line
I’m really happy that Wishtrend is putting a spotlight on their cruelty free brands, and it’s pretty neat that they are combining awareness with some special deals and offers. If you need to stock up on your Cosrx, Klairs, By Wishtrend or any of the other 7 brands’ favourites, this week is perfect for a little summer haul, if you ask me.
Wishtrend Cruelty Free Brand Week started yesterday and will last until the 31st of May 2018. If you are after the most popular brand deals and products, you may want to shop early, since especially the Cosrx stock will probably sell out fast! If you end up missing out on your favourite Cosrx products, there is still the currently ongoing Cosrx event to check out at Beautytap* – use my coupon code “sugarpeachescosrx” for 18% off all Cosrx products on Beautytap (not as good as the Wishtrend event, so I would suggest you compare product availability for both shops carefully!).
