Gmarket Haul #18 April 4, 2011

It’s been quite sometime since we had a Gmarket Haul.

The first time ever we’ve had a small Gmarket box.

The box was super smashed too , but nothing bad :

From our favourite Gmarket seller, Beauty Mania 01 :

1) OHUI The First Cell Revolution Massage Foam

Loves the packaging!

2) History Of Whoo Upgraded and Renewed Whitening Cream

Just to test out the difference between the new and old cream

3) Sooryehan Hyo Fermented BB Cream SPF 30

The packaging is gorgeous and beats Sulwhasoo flat! Made a quick glance at the ingredient list, and compared it to Sulwhasoo, and i can tell that the quality of the ingredients isn’t as good as the Sulwhasoo.

Initial testing : It has a thicker texture and has more coverage than the Sulwhasoo. It looks rather thick after applying but after a few minutes, it blends in wonderfully with the skin. Only physical sunscreen.

4) Sulwhasoo Snowise Whitening BB Base SPF 50+

Came without the box. Made a quick glance at the ingredient list. Only physical suncreen. One word to describe : WOW!

I’ve honestly never seen a BB Cream with the top 3 ingredients on the list that isn’t silicones, water, or propylene glycol, or Iron oxide. The top 3 ingredients are actually herbs : Angelica Acutiloba Root Extract, Artemisa Vulgaris Extract, and Cnidium Officinale Root Extract.

Initial impression : LOVES! The texture is light, and covers so naturally. This is going to be a long expensive love affair.

For those of you who want to know the colour before buying it , here is a photo :

Top : Hannule BB Cream, Middle : Sooryehan Hyo BB Cream, Bottom : Sulwhasoo

5) The History Of Whoo Whitening Sun Cream SPF 45

Lovin this sunscreen! Have heard complains about the Gongjinhyang sunscreen, but the Seol Whitening Cream is nothing like that.

Initial impression : Has a slight pink tone to it. Easy to work with, and the best part, it doesn’t feel greasy at all. The Sulwhasoo sun cream – Renodigm Dual Care is lighter in texture but the Whoo gives a nicer after feel. Definitely suitable if you have oily combi skin!

    Hi Hope In A Blog!

    I’m so happy you guys are going to try out the new Whitening Cream and Whitening Sun Cream from Whoo! The Whitening Cream has completely changed: from texture, scent, and feel. It is water-based, so it has this ‘water’ type of feel to it, but not entirely like the Soo Yeon Cream.

    I hope you guys like the Sulwhasoo B.B Base!!! Sulwhasoo makes sure to have high dosages of their potent ingredients, that’s why Sulwhasoo works! Haha. I am looking forward to your new reviews!!! 🙂 Keep up the great work Hope ❤

    <3!!! 🙂

    • the new whitening cream is quite nice! still not very hydrating. it is gel-based now ! and feels less silicone-y like the old cream. but the old cream gives a very smooth after-feel.

  4. kawen Says:

  5. kawen Says:

  6. kawen Says:

    on gmarket is 430,650 won is 405,24 usd but on paypal said is 450,22 usd??

    • Hi,

      Paypal has it’s own rates so it will be different if you pay using paypal !

      What are u purchasing? so far the whitening sun cream is superb, it is not greasy and makes your skin radiant ! loves it.

      also, there has been that malware problem at gmarket. i think a lot of people are experiencing it !

  7. Kman Says:

    Oh ok then, i bought THE New seol Cream and THE New seol Whitening sun Cream, seol intensive sample, seol essence, seol Peel off pack, THE soo yeon pack, hwayun essence, bichup essence, bidango secret Cream, THE ginseng oil sample.

    THE whitening sun Cream is à little pink you said, but is it looks like bb Cream?
    Xxx kman

  8. Rox Says:

    Hi Hope 🙂

    Sulwhasoo’s looks more natural!!! Great haul too 🙂

    Why does Gmarket pack the already packed up products from the buyer? So the weight becomes more and we have to end up paying more for shipping? lol scammers.

  9. Bea Says:

    hi hope!

  11. Kooslee Says:

    Hi, hopeinablog

    How would you grade the new History of Whoo whitening cream agaisnt the older version in term of whitening? Thank you.

    • hi have not used the cream long term wise, tried it just to see the difference in texture!

    • Rox Says:

      Hi Hope and Kooslee… I tried the new whitening cream and its not the same as the old whitening cream. The texture is more watery, like jelly. It really brightens the skin too, but the older one made skin look fairer, so I think the results are different! Its still good though, really moisturizing 🙂
