Woongjin Coway’s brand new foray into the Chinese medicine based skincare, Allvit, has been nominated in a prestigious International design award : the Red Dot Awards.


From the Red Dot website :


Packaging and luxury don’t go together? The work “Allvit” from the Woong Jin Coway company, South Korea, proves the opposite. It uses silk for the packaging of cosmetics. Silk has always been considered a precious fabric that was worn by kings and nobles. Elegant, stylish, sophisticated – that’s what silk still stands for.

With its design the work produces a profound modern mood with vibrant colours. The trick: No adhesives were used so that the unique packaging can be simply folded up.



With over 6,500 entries from 40-over countries, Coway’s AllVit was nominated GRAND PRIX 2011 under the Red Dot Grand Prix Packaging Design Awards together with 3 other products in the world : Festina Profundo, Apivita Kids, & BraufactuM Beer. Coway was also the only company representing Asia.

These body soaps are really popular – so i wanted to test them. Plus they’re sooooo cheap. 900ml for about 4 euros.

2. Hera White Program Trial Kit


Seller : here


This is a gift for a friend! Have not heard good stuff about the line though – Hera is more known for it’s makeup and suncare products than their skincare.

3. Su:m 37 Losec Skin Reviving Ampoule


This ampoule comes in a really lovely box, and it’s a ‘Gold Edition’. They’re really cute and tiny. An idea on how tiny it is :

6. LG ON: The Body Iris / Ylang Ylang / Cherry Blossom



Seller : here & here



This is LG’s version of Amore Pacific‘s Happy Bath. The entire brand just went through a revamp and it looks very pretty now! LG and Amore Pacific are always on head-on competition! Wonder how this compares to Happy Bath! Slightly more expense than Happy Bath.

7. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream + Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer


Seller : here


Etude House was having a promotion if you get the set, so i only ended up paying 2 euros extra for the BB Cream! The new Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer gives you that superstar glow and can be mixed with your BB Creams to give you that effect.

8. Coreana Zain Magnolia White Fluid + Essence + Cream


Seller : here


This is a special set which comes with the full size version toner and serum. Much cheaper than buying them separately. It also comes with a 25ml Cream. The serum alone is 90,000 – so this was a good deal ! Have heard really good stuff about this line, and my mum wanted a whitening line so i bought this for her to try. Zain is Coreana’s chinese medicine brand – but not as well known as other Chinese Medicine brands such as Sulwhasoo and History Of Whoo.

9. Coway Allvit Trial Pack


Seller : here


This is RE:NK’s chinese medicine herbal brand. I tested it briefly and i really liked it. The texture of their products are much lighter than Sulwhasoo and Whoo, and it is rather refreshing to be using a lightweight, refreshing Chinese Herbal brand.

9. Sulwhasoo Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Lifting Toner



Seller : here


Ran out of toner, so it was the perfect time to try Sulwhasoo’s newly launched toner.
