Gmarket Haul #21 August 7, 2011

 

 

Just a quick and small Gmarket Haul :

 

1. HERA Aquabolic Line

 

I’ve heard some good stuff regarding this line, so i bought a mini-kit to test it out.

 

 

2. HERA Pore Control Serum

 

This is a new HERA product to prepare you for the overactive sebaceous glands during summer!

 

 

3. The History Of Whoo Whitening Pact

 

 

 

 

I bought the full-size version, but realized it was the wrong shade ( Light Beige ) . So i thought i’d test out the shade i wanted earlier on ( Natural Beige ). This is a mini 3g version and it was just SOOOOOO cute. Even cuter than the packaging of the full size and it loooks realllly good! Great to bring around!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Elisha Coy Snail Cream Set

 

I posted this promotion earlier on the blog regarding the 50% sale off the ElishaCoy Snail Set. I bought the Elishacoy Snail Cream prior to this and loved it, so since it was on 50%, thought i’d purchase the entire set together with the newly launced Essence and Eye Balm ! They gave free masks and free samples!

 

 

 

5. Elishacoy Vitamin Pore Cleanser

 

It was on Buy 1 Free 1, so i had to get this! If you like the squeaky clean that the OHUI, History Of Whoo cleansers give you – you’re going to love this ! Plus it’s much much cheaper! Totally recommended! Get it while the Buy 1 Free 1 Promotion is still ongoing !

Snail Escargot Cream craze spreading to the rest of asia March 18, 2011

2011031725

In 2009, there was a boom in the popularity of snail creams in Korea.

In 2010, the snail cream craze heightened and now in 2011, it has spread to Japan and sooner or later – the rest of Asia.

Snail Creams are a hit among Japanese tourists in Korea. Japanese brands has been monitoring this situation and will be introducing their own snail creams this year.

Amore Pacific’s Etude House released their snail cream at the end of last year. The cream contains 73% of snail extract and is paraben-free, artificial colouring-free, artificial fragrance free and alcohol free.

LG’s The Face Shop launched also their version of the snail cream called  Sseal Secret Seal Of Nature which contains 60% Snail Mucin together with Panthenol and paraben-free.

The most famous of the lot is probably the snail cream from It’s Skin. Aiming at a higher-end market and luxurious packaging, their Prestige Creme Escargot was such a hit that a lotion, emulsion, bb cream, and body cream from the Escargot line was introduced. The It’s Skin cream contains 12,600mg of snail mucin.

Nature Republic has also joined the bandwagon recently and will be introducing their Snail Therapy Set which will consist of a Cream, Serum and Eye cream.

Tony Moly has also introduced their Live Snail Intense Repair line which started from a cream and now expanded to an eye cream, mask and serum due to high demands.

Elisha Coy has also recently introduced their Skin Repair Snail cream, and has achieved amazing sales after being introduced in Japan in just one day! The Elisha Coy Snail Cream consists of 91% Snail Mucin with Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera extracts. A Mask and Eye Patch will also be released.
