Gmarket Haul #19 May 17, 2011

 

We did another Gmarket Haul to prepare for summer. Each of us ordered a sun care product, so you’ll have 6 reviews from us when we’re done testing them! Open-mouthed smile 

We also bought a trial set of the Re:NK line

1. Coway Re-Nk Cell Luminous Trial Kit

Can’t wait to try this. It seems to be very similar to OHUI’s White Extreme as well as SK-II Celluminous line!

2. Coway Re-NK Skin Renew Trial Kit

Contains the toner and emulsion from the Time Lab line BUT the serum and cream from the Skin Renew line

3. HERA Sun Mate Airlight SPF 30

4. HERA Sun Mate Daily SPF 35

5. HERA Sun Mate Leports SPF 50

6. OHUI Perfect Sunblock Red EX

7. OHUI Perfect Sunblock Black EX

8. OHUI Powder Sun Block EX Sun Science

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 !!

 

Gmarket Haul Number #17 March 15, 2011



1) History Of Whoo Gongjinhyang Upgraded Deluxe Set

This deluxe set comes with a 10ml Qi & Jin Essence, and 10ml Cream compared to the other onewhich only contains 4ml of the Ja Saeng Serum and 4ml of the cream.

2) History Of Whoo Upgraded Seol Starter’s Kit

This starter’s kit contains the newly upgraded lotion, toner, whitening intensive, and a 4ml Ja Saeng serum. It doesn’t come in a box but it a elegant ziplock bag bearing the Whoo logo.

3) OHUI White Extreme Starter’s Kit

This is the latest Whitening line from OHUI. It contains an emulsion, toner, serum, mask, and cleansing foam. Note that there is another starter’s kit which contains the face cream instead of the mask and cleansing foam.

4) Su:m 37 White Radiance Cream

This is the 20ml format.

5) Su:m 37 Whit Award Radiance Recharging Cream

We had some free samples of the latest Su:m 37 whitening cream. Not to be confused with the White Radiance Cream. This is a new cream from the same whitening line.

6) OHUI White Extreme Cream

We also had some samples of the new OHUI White Extreme line.

7) Hannule Go Gyeol Mi Baek Samples

As we bought the full set, the seller did give some miniature samples. Notice that there is a slit on the bottle of the serum. It gives an indication of product used! Nice touch for just a sample.

8) Hannule Go Gyeol Mi Baek

The packaging is extremely luxurious and lovely. It comes in a solid lovely box and the packaging of the bottles are so beautiful too. Totally worth it !

Gmarket Haul Number # 16 February 17, 2011

I know i know… we just received our haul a few days ago.


But we won quite a lot of money on Gmarket and we had plenty of cash balance on our account.. and plus the coupons.. we basically paid nothing for this haul Open-mouthed smile

 


And Gmarket was on sale… haha *excuses excuses*

 


Ok, let’s indulge !

 


 

 

1. Sooryehan Hyo Fermented Vinegar Essence

 

 

This is the latest essence off the Hyo line ( it has another one so be careful when you buy it – make sure it is the one you want ) and was just launched last week. We have an article on this essence ( it’s for detoxing your skin and eliminate waste products ). We were sooooo impressed by LG. Wow.

 

 

We just bought one bottle of essence, and everything else was given free. Yes, even the two FULL SIZE Sooryehan Luxury base and starter were given FREE. Not to mention the samples ( 5 x 10ml samples of the cream, 10ml x 4 of the other essence, 50ml of the sleeping pack, 25ml of the toner and emulsion, 5ml of the eye cream ). This set is sooooo totally worth it. The serum itself costs about 95,000 won but LG has reduced it to 90,000. Then, come to this page and click on the LG icon to win a 20% coupon ( however, this page is not valid for new Gmarket users – you need to have certain points to be able to enter this page).

 

 

On top of the 20%, you can win easily another 10% coupon from the Gmarket International Page, or 10%/7%/5% according to your VIP status on Gmarket. Finally after all the coupons, you pay only about 62,000 wons , and you get freebies worth up till 200,000 wons ( the 50ml cream and 40ml serum costs 85,000 each = 298,000 wons. The Sooryehan luxury base = 85,000 and the Sooryehan Luxury Starter = 43,000 won , therefore the grand total = 298,000 wons )  .

 

 

Not only that, you automatically get 2850 Gmileage, and 10 Gstamps! Head over to this page to buy it! You’re not gonna find this deal even if you fly all the way to Korea!

 

 

Did we mention how beautiful the packaging is too??

 


 

 

2. It’s Skin Prestige D’escargot Cream

 

 

Alright, same thing here, you’re never gonna buy this cream at the Gmarket price even if you fly to Korea. My friends have seen Japanese customers lining up in It’s Skin shops buyinh 5-6 bottles of the SAME cream. This cream is a sensation in Korea and doubt as the ‘miracle’ cream right now! It’s on sale –20% off right now, therefore you can buy it at 48,000. On top of that, you can use your VIP coupons – if you’re a SVIP, you can use your 10% coupon which brings the price down from 48,000 to 42,000 then win a  10% Super coupon bringing the price down once more from 42,000 to 37,000.

 

 

 

Another way is to ‘exchange’ your Gstamps and enter the lucky draw to win the 10,000 coupon for every 60,000 won purchased. That way it goes from 48,000 directly down to 38,000 and top it off with your 10% Super coupons and it goes down to 33,000. That’s HALF of the price! Where else are you going to find such a deal ?? And only Hope In The Blog gives useful tips like these! Oh, and the green thing beside the cream is a free cushion Open-mouthed smile

 

 


 

 

3. LG’s OHUI White Extreme Brightener and Emulsion– this is the latest whitening upgraded line from OHUI. You can only get it from this seller.

 

 


4. LG’s OHUI Original Energy 100 Vital Power / 100 Hydra Power / 100 Radiance Power

These 3 serums are the star of OHUI and they are very famous. One seller was kind enough to give us samples for us to review.

 


  • Hydra Power

Ampoule containing the powerful moisturizing extracts of hyacinth. Native to the Mediterranean region, hyacinth is known to store water in its sap to retain moisture even in dry environments. This moisture preserving power of hyacinths is captured in Hydra Power, an ampoule which uses nature’s strength to enhance the skin’s foundation and to maintain the optimal moisture balance inside and out. Fully hydrated from deep inside, it gives the skin a glow with natural silkiness.
Quickly absorbed without leaving sticky residues, Hydra Power feels light while its moisturizing power reaches down into the depths of the skin.

 


  • Radiance Power

The secret of the iridescence and beauty of pearls is captured in Radiance Power ampoule, containing concentrated extracts from the inner shell layer of pearl oysters also known as nacre protein. Nature’s strength enhances the skin’s foundation, and the various organic materials and pearl substances transform the sallow and uneven skin tone to one that is sheer and bright. The result is a healthy and radiant skin that glows from deep inside.
Silky yet light, Radiance Power creates an elastic moisture layer that smoothens out the unevenness of the facial skin.

 


  • Vital Power

Ampoule containing rich extracts from planktons, recognized for their capacity to survive in extreme desert conditions. Nature’s strength concentrated in the raw extracts helps fortify the very foundation of the skin, revitalizing sagging and fatigued skin by restoring its elasticity and vitality.
Rich and nutritious, Vital Power keeps the skin moisturized and soft without leaving any sticky residues. Fully absorbed, it helps define and perfect the facial contour

 

 


 

 

4. LG’s Sum37 White Award Toner and Serum – can be bought at an exremely affordable price at the same seller

 


5. LG’s History Of Whoo Hwanyugo – gift from seller

 

 


6. LG’s OHUI 28 Renew program – a skin renewal program from OHUI from the same seller above.

Gmarket Haul #13 ! January 21, 2011

Just one day after, we received our other Gmarket order. LOL. This is going to be our 2nd last Gmarket order for sometime. The last one will be arriving next week.

However, this time around, we had some other friends who purchased more stuff too..

Let’s see if there’s anything to catch your attention ( I’m sure there will be ! )


 


1. History Of Whoo : The Whitening Program Kit Samples, The FULL SIZE discontinued CHUNG : DAN essence. ( we ordered the YOON though ). Ohmygod.. did u just see that luxurious looking Whoo Hwanyu Mini-kit?? It really is gorgeous isn’t it ? Am so in love with the packaging ! We also got samples off the Hanyul Premium Whitening line – the face cream.


 

 

2. We also got ourselves the infamous Whoo Jineak Whitening Program. This is the old version as the new upgraded version contains a bottle of gel and i think the essence is upgraded too. However i sent an email to Royal Beauty Cosmetics which sells the History Of Whoo products and asked them the difference between the old and renewed line ( renewed as of May 2010 ) and this was their reply :


Dear Sir/Madam:

Thank you for your interest.  The new whitening jianek program comes with an extra gel lotion to boost with the whitening effect.  According to our customers back home in Seoul, and our customers in North America, the original whitening jinaek program does a much faster job at whitening than the new upgraded version. If you have further questions feel free to contact us.

Best Regards,

Royal Beauty Cosmetics
