Gmarket Haul #17 May 9, 2011


A few birthdays were coming up, so we knew a Haul was definitely coming up!

1. L’arcobaleno AC-11 Super Cell Energy Blemish Balm

We wrote about this a few days ago and we decided to test this out. They gave us free samples from the other items off the L’arcobaleno brand!

2. Amore Pacific Hyosiah  Fermentation Line

Hyosiah is kind of like Amore Pacific’s answer to LG’s fermentation line Su:m 37. The focus is on the fermentation of mung beans ( I think Coreana has a line like that too.. )

3. Su:m 37 Sun Away Baked Essence SPF 50+ PA +++

Su:m 37’s sun powder… love the packaging and love the product! For those with fair skin only though Sad smile 

Totally recommended if you don’t like putting on sunscreen!

4. History Of Whoo Seol Whitening Toner and Starter’s Kit

The packaging of the toner is beaaauutiful and the samples as well. This is the newly revamped and upgraded Seol line from Whoo

5. Elishacoy Skin Repairing Snail Cream & Snail Hydrogel Mask

We bought the snail cream, and the rest were samples! Btw, a seller is selling this at 50% off!! So if you can get the seller to open up international shipping on Gmarket – you’re in for a bargain!

6. Sooryehan Bichaek Pure Whitening Mask

Can’t wait to try this out!

7. Amore Pacific Hannule Hanyul Gogyeol Mibaek Whitening Mask / Hannule  Hanyul Rich Effect Whitening Mask

This is also from the new whitening line from Hannule. We’ve heard that the mask is quite similar to the Sulwhasoo Snowise Mask, but much cheaper.

8. LG OHUI White Extreme 3D Black Mask

A black mask?? You gotta be kidding me!! Haha how can we not try a black mask?

9. Su:m 37 Water-full Gel Cream

Was given a sample of the new water-full gel cream. LG has recently changed the packaging for the samples for the water-full line. The new packaging is bigger than the old one, and is 3ml instead of the 1.5ml. I’ve placed an old sample packaging side to side to compare the sizes. Good move LG! Customers can try the products longer and obtain a better judgement.

10. Dr Jart CellWake Only One EX

The new serum from Dr.Jart that has been picking up in popularity in Korea. It has quite an impressive ingredient list! This is Dr. Jart’s first foray into the high-end skincare line and costs about 78,000 won for 30ml.

However, you can easily win the Dr.Jart 20% coupon! Dr Jart also gave the cleansing lotion full size for free, along with so many other samples. Impressed !!

    Would be interesting to know what you think of Hyosia after using it. I have used Coreana Nokdu before, and honestly, for its price, it is a real steal. The peeling gel, and the repairing toner are really good.

  2. Etude Girl Says:

    The SEOL line! Whitening intensive did wonders to some of my new formed acne marks. Hope, where did u get the seol starter kit? Does the buyer ship internationally on gmarket?

    • hi etude girl,

      it’s sold out already. it’s usually sold out immediately, so make sure you are subscribed to the blog, so when there is availability, you will be informed first. The whitening intensive was upgraded and renewed recently!

      • ReY Says:

        and I was just about to ask u the same thing! does Seol starter kit still out of stock? been racking my brain to find a proper search keyword in gmarket but still cant find it anywhere T.T I reallyyyy want this 😦

      • Hi Rey!

        I dont think it will be in stock anytime soon anymore! The seol line is
        one line that doesnt need to be tested hehe. Just get the full size
        items. We regretted wasting money on the kits. But its ok, we bought
        the full size items in the end

      • ReY Says:

        awwww thats too bad >.< I mean I was trying to just use seol for a month or two (since lots people said that it was a fast result), then I continue with su;m's white award to maintain the result,,since whoo's products mostly contains alcohol, its kinda concern me,,also since I'm still in early 20s so I think whoo's products probably didn't really suit me rite now,,but I desperately need gud whitening products! TT.TT oh well, there's a whoo counter here, so maybe I'll ask them again if they have this in their stock
        thx anyway hope ^^

      • yeah! i’m sure Sum37 also contains alcohol. Sadly, almost all whoo sulwhasoo sum37 hannule sooryehan products contain alcohol. and rather high up the ingredient list! whoo’s whitening is suitable for all ages. sum37 and whoo’s target audience are women above 30+, because they are all premium lines.

      • ReY Says:

        oh, so whoo whitening is actually for all ages? thought su:m37 was for all ages haha
        okay then, maybe I’ll save up n buy the full size of whoo instead?
        could u recommend me what should I get first? I probably could only buy 3-4 items at a time ^^;
        thx a lot hope! 🙂

  3. Kev Says:

    Even Hannule has alcohol. Hanskin too has alcohol. But the type of alcohol is also very important too. Not all kinds of alcohol dry up the skin. Some forms of alcohol are binders and bind oils to water, and others are emulsifying agents.

    • ReY Says:

      yeah, some does say that there are some types of alcohol that were actually good,,but I’m not sure what to look for since everything that ends with ‘col’ (like butylene glycol) sounds like alcohol to me n I dunno which one is actually the good one >.< haha
