Even though Amore Pacific has been a pain in the ass, we’ve been flooded with e-mails regarding questions about the line. So we are going to do a short introduction on the Hannule / Hanyul brand for those of you who are looking for information as there is no english information regarding this brand at all.
Hannule or Hanyul is a brand under the Amore Pacific Group and is touted as the Sulwhasoo for younger skin. The brand targets women at their early 20s to late 30s.
There are 4 distinct lines in Hannule which are encoded by their distinctive colour, namely the Red, Purple, Blue, White and Green.
Kudos goes to Kevin Jang ( which we are trying to get him to feature some articles on this blog ) for most of the information regarding this line.
1) Red Line – Hannule Keuk Jin line
This line is a premium care line and is probably the most expensive line in Hannule. It is a skin renewal line, anti wrinkle, anti aging, firming and elasticity line.
The TV-ad for the Keuk Jin line shows that the line can firm the skin for the V-line silhouette of the face.
Not forgetting, the Hannule Keuk Jin Essence was the no.2 best selling product of the Amore Pacific in 2010 ( just behind IOPE’s Super Vital Extra Moist Cream). Not to mention that it even achieved higher sales than the much cheaper Amore Pacific brand ‘Mamonde’ which was 4th rank.

This is the basic line from Hannule / Hanyul. There is a green line called the Ga Eum line which is also a basic care line except that it is only sold on home TV channels while the Dark Blue line is found in beautyplexs and Hannule counters.
The line is a moisture line which is suitable for all skin types and for all 4 seasons.
The line consists of 6 products – a toner, emulsion, essence, 2 types of massage essence and a face cream.
We really like the massage essence and there are 2 types.
Jeong (정)is for normal and dry skin, while Yeon (연) is for oily and combination skin. You apply it onto your palms first, rub it to activate it with heat, and then apply it onto your face, while massaging the vital acupuncture points indicated for the essence. To be applied after toner and used as an essence.
