Introducing the world’s first water drop egg hair serum – the Richenna Water Drop Egg Hair Serum. 워터 드롭 에그 헤어 세럼.

If you guys have not heard about the term ‘water drop’ which is quite common in Asian cosmetics – it refers to a type of liquid formulation that when rubbed, water droplets burst and makes the texture more liquid and easier to spread. It is used normally in serums – but we’ve seen them used also in BB Creams – such as the Mamonde BB Cream.

The hair serum contains egg yolk ( rich in lecithin and vitamin A ) , egg albumin ( which acts as a hair conditioning agent ) , oils and proteins to help nourish the hair and form a shield to protect the hair from losing moisture. It also keeps your hair smooth without stickiness.  It also contains Ceramide 3 which repairs damange hair and provide moisture.

Dear Readers,

We thank you all for your support !

The reason we decided to close down the blog was because it was too time consuming, and it wasn’t easy to manage a non-profit blog.

But after reading the words of encouragement, I decided to continue the blog myself! The other members of Hope In A Blog will not be participating anymore, so I will be solely responsible for the site updates. The other members will help out when they can, this blog will always be open to them.

I will also be setting up an entire new blog, and hopefully it will be ready soon. It will also be a donation-on-go site for the site maintenance ( web hosting, domain, etc ). Therefore, if you appreciate all the hard work that goes into each post, we hope you can donate to help out with maintaining the site, while I dedicate my time to introduce and review more amazing Asian skincare and cosmetics!

I will continue to update the site until the new blog is ready.

There will be a competition soon for the launch of the new site, and the prize will be a History Of Whoo Gongjinhyang Starter’s Kit ! So look out for that because the first person who answers the question correctly will win it !



The other members of Hope In A Blog wants to thank everyone here for your support!

We are very sad to say this but Hopeinablog will be closing down by Sunday… so if you have missed any articles/advice/updates/news .. do it before it goes offline!

We hope that everyone has loved this blog and has learnt  more about Asian Cosmetics through this blog. Asian cosmetics have always been seen in a negative light by westerners and even by Asians themselves which thinks that Western cosmetics are much more effective, superior and better than Asian cosmetics.

Hope In A Blog was created to uphold the image of Asian cosmetics and to spread the knowledge of good Asian cosmetics. Asian cosmetics are not in any way less effective, less better than Western ones!

We hope that after reading and following this blog, all those who doesn’t read an ingredient list on their cosmetic packaging before purchasing them – are starting too! And that you guys are spreading the love for Asian cosmetics.

A new chapter awaits us. Thank you for all your support all along!

See you soon.
