Gmarket Haul Number #10 December 23, 2010

The weather has been really &&£*”&£ lately. I walked to and fro the Post Office under the rain just to collect this for ALL of us. I should be rewarded the Whoo Soo Yeon Set for the Hope In A Blog’s Christmas Presents Exchange *giggles*

Anyway, all of us are loving The History Of Whoo and Sulwhasoo more and more, we bought lots of samples. We also profited from Suiskin Buy 1 Free 1 sales and they sent us two samples of the Panacea Program especially for our readers. Head over to our facebook page to find out how to win it !

Sneak Peak :

1) History Of Whoo Hwa Hyun Eye Cream + Essence. By the way, these are just samples, but already the packaging is sooo lovely ! I’ve never seen such attractive samples packaging before. Even Sulwhasoo doesn’t produce such exquisite packaging for their samples.

3) History Of Whoo’s full size Jinyul Massage Pack. It comes together with the wooden massage tool which is quite cool. However the box was not included Sad smile I notice that though History Of Whoo is a high end range brand, all of it’s packaging are not glass-made and light, unlike Sulwhasoo’s packaging which is on the very heavy glass side.

4) DR MJ ( which is under the BRTC company )’s Snail Eye Cream. Gotta say i love the packaging and i have both the snail gel and snail cream from this range too.

5) Our Suiskin Spree to profit from the Buy 1 Free 1 Promotion. They even gave some free Hello Kitty samples which are sooo cute ! Remember that you can win one of those two envelopes behind the Hello Kitty samples which contains 1 5ml bottle of the Fermented Panacea Essence and 2 packets of the Panacea Moisturizer. For details, head over to our facebook page

6) We ordered 3 different Whoo Foam Cleansers. Can’t wait to test them. Each of us have 2 weeks to test and we’re switching. Also we got a few samples off History Of Whoo’s Basic Line : the face cream, the eye cream and the essence. Notice that these samples are so beautiful too being just plain samples. They even come with a sealed ziplock bag bearing the Whoo logo and cost only about 1/5 of the actual price! What a steal ! We also got ourselves more of Sulwhasoo’s Overnight Treatment Pack

For those of you who are interested to purchase History Of Whoo or Sulwhasoo full size products from an official distributor, there is a 10% discount coupon just for Hope In A Blog readers, details here

    Amazing post! And GREAT samples! Wow! I hope you guys enjoy them! The History of Whoo seriously never disappoints! *I will let you know why the Chung line was discontinued soon!* Will be visiting the store in a few days 🙂 You will love the Brightening Cleansing Foam! The Jinuyl Foam has a very herbal scent – and is very moisturizing! All the great known red herbs are selected for the Jinyul line (stay tuned for my review!!! I hope I can get the ingredient list too) 🙂

    Love, Korean Skin Care ❤

    Hi Hope,
    i came across your site in my search for some good Whoo deals.
    i’ve never ordered from Gmarket and want to know if they ship to US?
    also, how much do you pay for the deluxe samples? the package looks amazing.. i just bought the sample packs of whitening kit program off ebay and would love to get my hands on some of the bigger samples.
    also, do these ever clog pores for acne-prone/oily skin? that was my biggest concern.
    thanks so much!

    • yes they do ship to the US. Infact Gmarket is a lot like Ebay (in fact it is Ebay since Ebay has bought 50% shares – now it is called Ebay Gmarket) . There are so many sellers, each charging different prices for the samples. For example, a deluxe sample for Whoo’s whitening Kit will cost about 15,000 Korean wons (12 usd?). Or you can buy them in bigger batches which will have the same quantity as the real product. Have fun discovering Gmarket – you will get hooked ! you can even get samples off the Whoo line for oily acne skin which was discontinued on Gmarket 🙂 . No it doesnt blog our pores – at least not for us. Infact, it has done wonders to our skin. We are obsessed with Whoo and Sulwhasoo!

    Hi Hope In A Blog!

    I AM IN NEED OF A NEW CLEANSER. I have used the Whoo Seol Brightening Cleanser, but I would like to try out the Whoo Gongjinyang Foam Cleanser (the orange one). Have you used it yet? I am in need of MAJOR help! And are the ingredients listed too??? Thank you SO MUCH!!!!!!!!! (P.s, which do you like from the three?) 🙂

    • Hi, it depends on what is your skin type. They are some inexpensive samples on Gmarket ! Jinyul cleanser has a vERY strong herbal smell to it. And the Gongjinhyang Foam Cleanser has also been upgraded and renewed together with the whole line, so if you want to get that, wait for the new one. the samples for the new cleanser is out already though!

      • Rox Says:

        Yay! Thank you. My skin type is normal/combo, would you think it would be okay? I will wait then, I’d rather get the upgraded products 🙂

        How is the texture though? Is it similar to the Seol Brightening Cleanser? Thank you so much! And does it foam well? 🙂


      • The Jinyul Cleanser has more like a essence/serum-ish texture, foams once in contact with water! Which cleanser are you talking about?

        If you love foams, you will love the ishizawa white wash- we love it too! Foam is thick and rich and contains Hyaluronic acid, collagen, royal jelly extract, honey !

  5. Rox Says:


    I am talking about The History of Whoo Gongjinyang Foam Cleanser. Does it have a thick texture or is it light? And good for normal skin?

    Could I possibly request you guys to do a review? I really want to purchase The History of Whoo Kun Ja Yang Foam Cleanser (the one for men) for my friend, and I would love it if you would review it for us!!!


  6. Rox Says:

    Its okay 🙂

    Finally! I have been waiting hahaha 😀

    I was afraid that you bought so much things, you end up not using the products!!! 😦

    I can’t wait for your review Hope!!!

    Did they (The history of Whoo and Sulwhasoo) include the full English ingredient list on packaging (boxed, unboxed and gift set)? Because I have very sensitive skin and want to avoid certain ingedients. Thanks.
