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!

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.

Sooryehan releases new hyo fermented vinegar essence February 12, 2011

201101282

 

 

LG’s Sooryehan will be releasing a new essence off their fermentation-based herbal line called ‘Hyo’

 

 

 

SooRyeHan Hyo is an Oriental medicine-based fermented cosmetic product developed by the Oriental Medicine-based Cosmetic Research Laboratory. Biyeonmongnandan and gyeongokgo, carefully selected Oriental medicine substances, are filtered by optimal yeasts to enable quick and effective absorption of active ingredients deep within the skin.

 

 

 

Biyeonmongnandan and gyeongokgo are secret formulas handed down in Dongeuibogam ("Treasures of Eastern Medicine"). They protect skin cells from free radicals that accelerate the aging of skin and improve cell functioning to slow skin aging and offer firm and healthy-looking skin.

 

 

 

The fermented biyeonmongnandan and gyeongokgo are outstanding at delaying aging as they are twice as effective at antioxidation and eight times more powerful at cell stimulation once they undergo the fermentation process.

 

 

 

When skin begins to age, there is a shortage of four main skin properties(amino acid, organic acid, mineral, and female hormone) due to the sharp decline of yin and blood, and the skin enters into a state of extreme deficiencies of key elements.

 

 

Sooryehan Hyo introduces a new fermentation method (goo-jeung-goo-po:nine cycles of steaming and drying) to completely supplement both yin and yang to care for the skin that chronically suffers from deficiencies of key properties.

 

 

Goohyodan was created by applying the Oriental herbal-medicine’s fermentation method of steaming and drying four key herbal ingredients (ginseng, foxglove [Reh-mannia glutinosa], Pleuropterus multiflorus, Polygonatum falcatum). Provides excellent defense against aging and leaves skin moist and firm to present the ultimate beauty that successfully erases years away from your skin.

 

 

Goo-jeung-goo-po Fermentation Method

 

 

Goo-jeung-goo-po has been traditionally used in Oriental herbal medicine to maximize ingredients’ efficacy. This technique of steaming and drying nine times has now been adopted as Sooryehan Hyo’s new fermentation method. "Goo-jeung-goo-po Fermentation Method" uses yeast and lactic acid bacteria to steam and ferment herbal ingredients nine times to maximize the efficacy of the fermentation process. It increases effective properties and improves the benefits of the fermentation process including fast absorption and anti-toxicity to effectively supplement and control both the yin and yang.

 

 

Goohyodan

 

 

Goohyodan is Sooryehan’s secret fermentation method for skin regeneration. Fermented ginseng, foxglove, Pleuropterus multiflorus, and Polygonatum falcatum supplement the drastic decline of yin and blood with the onset of aging.

 

 

The vinegar essence removes waste materials in the skin. It contains 100 different kinds of herbal ingredients which go through a natural fermentation process using 5 kinds of natural fermentation strains ( lactobacillus, yeast extracts, etc ). The essence will improve skin texture and maintain a clear pure complexion, providing abundant moisture to the skin while relieving skin aging.

 

 

The essence will retail for 95,000 won for 40ml.

 

 

To buy this, search for 수려한 효 발효초 에센스 on Gmarket.

UPDATE :

It is available from the LG Gmarket page. The price is 90,250 wons but you can easily get it for 60,000wons.

First of all, apply for the 20% LG Coupon here

Then go here :

Then win those 10% Coupons on the International Gmarket Page to get another 9,000 wons off, and you will be able to buy the new Sooryehan serum for about 63,000 wons.

They are giving away a lot of samples and even 2 full size products which are worth more than 200,000 wons !!
