I know I’m not supposed to buy any more skincare until my existing “stocks” finish. But hey, I did this haul before I wrote that article LOL
say YES to GMARKET!
How long it took?
It took about a week for all items to arrive at Gmarket warehouse.
This time round, I decided to go by EMS since DPD delivery is getting slower recently. =(
By the way, the status “In Overseas Shipping Process” stayed the same during the weekend and only changed on Monday (parcel is shipped out that day too). So yup, Gmarket warehouse don’t do packing on weekends.
EMS took only two days to deliver the parcel 🙂 AWESOME!
I was taken by surprise when I saw the parcel. I seriously don’t remember ordering any posters! Why is it in such a LONG box?
I was not surprised to see that the box is only half-filled… 😦
Now, you can guess which one is the “culprit” to the LONG gmarket box ya?
1. Hair Extension Haul
The bright pink box contained hair extension which I intended to use for my pony tail. I know there are pony tail extensions out there but I didn’t want to make my pony tail appear too thick (which most pony tail extensions do). Using one piece hair extension is just nice I feel and it’s cheaper! But I need to find a way to clip it on thou..
The seller was nice enough to gift me a comb, two hair clips and some bobby pins. Instructions of use were included as well.
The quality of the hair extension is REALLY GOOD! Smooth and natural in terms of touch and look ^^

Option: 01.고) 1피스(작은) 생머리-내츄럴블랙 in 선택안함 (natural black)
2. Etude House Haul
As always, Etude House always give generous bubblewrap instead of putting the items in boxes which are heavier! I really like it this way cos it makes shipping cheaper!
Because Etude House was having 30% off everything, I couldn’t resist the urge to get something fro them. Knowing that I already have TONNES of skincare, I restricted myself from buying unnecessary products and ended up with these:
A nail polish (for Chinese New Year!), Moistfull Set (my review for the cream is here) for my sister, Black Charcoal Chin Pack and Black Head Bond Patch!
No freebies this time round but I guess it’s due to the fact that everything was on 30% discount =/
Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch them on their next sale! Their sales are always announced one or two days beforehand and only lasts for about three or so days. So do check out the website or the Gmarket Global facebook page frequently for the surprise sales! 🙂

3. Plain T-shirts Haul
The items in the G-Market white plastic bag are plain t-shirts 🙂
Going at 2,000 won each (exclusive of the domestic and overseas shipping fees), I didn’t expect great quality. As expected, it’s really thin and sheer when stretched (cos it’s really fitting for me)! T_T But I supposed wearing it a jacket or cardigan over should be ok…
Even without stretching it, it’s kinda sheer as well. I took a picture from the insides of the t-shirt and here’s it:
Thank goodness I didn’t order a white one ^^”’

Options: “드무지티-블랙” (Black) and “라운드무지티-바다” (Sea Blue)
4. it’s skin Haul
The item I was looking forward the most!
It’s the it’s skin Power 10 VB Effector for oil control! *My excuse for this is because I have no serums in my current skincare stash. HAHA*
I’ve heard great reviews about the Power 10 effectors from it’s skin and can’t be more happy when I saw that Gmarket Global launched it! GREAT! I’ve been lemming for sometime already! I wonder why Gmarket Japan sells it but Gmarket Global doesn’t back then! So I must grab it before the seller decides to closes international shipping like Innisfree! *Another excuse!*
I decided to get one to try first and hence decided on the oil control one first. If I’m happy with this one, I’ll order the Pore Control & Whitening (it appears to be their top selling serum!) one the next time (I wonder when will that be? ^^””)
The serum cames with lots of freebies (three masks and their uber expensive Creme de Escargot samples!) , all stuffed in that small box. HAHA At least it sort of helped to ease the pain of paying domestic shipping fees (2,500 won) for just the serum (I wanted to get more other serums but I stopped myself…)
Do look out for my review (yes, it’ll come soon!! SOON!)

5. Innisfree Samples Haul
My third skincare buy from this haul =p
60 packs of Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask (4ml) & 30 bottles of Red Wine Peeling Softener (5ml)
My reasons for buying the items are:
1. I’m loving the Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask and is running out of it!
2. This seller sells it CHEAPER than the previous one (see my Gmarket Haul #6)
3. I need a gentler exfoliator as I’m starting to find my Eucerin one too harsh and my Ginvera Green Tea Marvel gel running out too
4. I’m an alcoholic like anything that has got red wine! HAHA
Justified? I hope so. HAHA
The softener didn’t leaked out 🙂 I was so afraid it would! But the seller packed them in a box so it’s safe I guess!
Item Link: http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=201470412
Options: “184.이니.화산송이모공마스크 30장” (Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask) and “191.이니.와인필링소프너 5ml 30개” (Red Wine Peeling Softener)
6. Kpop Haul
Haha. This haul is for my fellow 2NE1 fan (not sure if we are considered hardcore enough to be BlackJacks?) cum bestie!
I ordered the To Anyone (2NE1) and High High (GD & TOP, from the group BigBang) albums. Both groups are AWESOME so if you’re reading this now, pls head over to youtube, look for their official youtube accounts NOW and watch their MVs!! 🙂
I passed the albums to my friend later in the night (coincidentally booked her that night to shop for birthday presents) and she opened up the albums for me to see 🙂 I didn’t bring my camera along so no pics… ^^”
Both albums include photobooks which contains the lyrics (2NE1’s are handwritten by all memebers!), high quality studio shots and MV shots, YG Family cards and of course, the CD. For an additional 1,000 won, you will get their album posters as well 🙂
I ordered without the poster (as instructed by my friend) and after telling about how awesome the GD & TOP poster is (I read about the poster on Miketsu’s blog, another G-Market lover ;)), I think she’s kinda regretted it. HAHA
I myself is lemming to get the albums as well cos the quality of the packaging is REALLY REALLY GOOD. T_T
See what I mean? (Picture taken while the plastic cover was still on.)

7. Checked Shirts Haul
I wanted a checked shirt in red for a long time already (I had one but it was too small for me) and when I saw the shirt, I knew I had to get it! =p In time for Chinese New Year as well 🙂
Well, in my first cart (I sent in two orders as I wanted to utilise my Cash Balance and combined the orders together to make shipping cheaper), I ordered the WRONG one, the one in blue T_T
Thank goodness I discovered the error (don’t ask me why I had the sudden thought of double-checking my order AFTER i ordered) when I was about to place my 2nd order so that I could get the red checked shirt. I was contemplating whether to cancel my first one but I decided to get it since it’s looks pretty nice and I hardly have anything in blue 🙂 Moreover, it was on discount so it’s quite cheap 🙂
Both shirts are pretty thin and sheer (it’s ok since it’s not tight-fitting), excellent for the hot weather in Singapore (but recently it’s kinda colddddd). I was kinda scared that it’ll be thick because most clothing over at Gmarket are meant for winter wear since it’s winter in Korea right now.
Both shirts are true to the picture in terms of cutting, design and colour 🙂
The red one has 3/4 sleeves while the blue one has long sleeves.

Options: C2-130(5)진체크모그셔츠 와인F (Red Checked Shirt) and C2-601 레인보우셔츠 블루F (Blue Checked Shirt)
8. Stickers Haul
The last items of my haul 🙂
Really pretty and cute 🙂 I wanted to get more but the rest were pretty expensive and not to my taste. These stickers are meant for designing my scrapbook which will be gifts for my girlfriends who went with me on my Bintan trip!
These stickers come in two pieces (identical). It’s great for me since I wanna do something similar for both of my friends. 🙂
What’s saddening is the seller actually ship them in a BIG box. T_T
Now thinking back, these stickers cost me almost SGD$8 excluding shipping =/ But for my friends, it’s worth it. HAHA
Item link: http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=153433087
Option: “A172 주주 index sticker-Pink” and “A173 주주 index sticker-Balck” (lol spelling error)
I’m pretty satisfied with this haul. I got my clothes, skincare and stickers in pretty short time 🙂
The only complaint is the big boxes issue again =/ I hope that they will be more flexible in packing again. Like opening up boxes to contain the smaller items together like in one of my previous hauls…
I’m not sure if I’ll be hauling from G-Market again any time soon due to my skincare ban.. I guess I’ll most probably haul when winter is over and sellers start introducing the Spring/Summer collections soon 🙂
Hmm.. But Valentine is coming soon!!! Should I get something from G-Market for my girlfriends? MUAHAHA!
See what I mean about G-Market shopping is addictive? I’m not a shopping person actually XD
