Gmarket Haul #8

I may be MIA in posting reviews…

But I have been visiting Gmarket regularly! keke

A haul done in March πŸ™‚


I can’t remember since when I started using EMS.. But DPD has terminated their service since end Feb. Anyway, EMS uses their own shipping boxes πŸ™‚


It’s not a very big haul for me as majority of the orders came from others..

1. Canvas Shoes

My sister needed a new pair of shoes for her laboratory modules (one of the dress code is covered shoes) and thus, she ordered this simple and cheap pair of shoes πŸ™‚

The shoes came without the boxes. Not sure if it’s by default that the seller ships without the box but I did put a note to request the seller to ship without the box to reduce shipping costs and save some space πŸ™‚


The quality is acceptable πŸ™‚ However, the seller gave a pair of shoelace that were unequal in length! LOL

2. Handphone/MP3 pouch

This is an order from a spree-er. Quality looks pretty good and the colour is nice as well!

3. Rene Furterer Complex 5

This is the main reason of the haul as it’s really really cheap! Local Watsons stores are selling it for around SGD$80 but I got it for around SGD$60! πŸ™‚

It came with a generous amount of bubblewrap.


Seller gave a mask as freebie. πŸ™‚ I’m not sure about the brand but it’s made in Korea.


4. Etude House Haul

I realised in almost every Gmarket haul, there’s always some stuff from Etude House. Anyway, the items are well bubble-wrapped as usual!


It’s a very small haul as I can’t really think of anything I need. LOL

I got a Surprise Me Concealer #2 (left) which is really good in hiding my blemishes πŸ™‚

Just to get the free domestic shipping, I got a matt nail polish (middle) LOL

The Baking Powder BB Deep Cleansing Foam sample (right) is a freebie from the seller πŸ™‚

5. Sulwhasoo & sum:37 haul

The 2nd reason for the haul is this! I’ve been wanted to try the Sulwhasoo products and I wanted to try the Herblinic Restorative Ampoules to treat my acne problem. So it’s time to haul! LOL


I got the Sulwhasoo Herblinic Restorative Ampoule samples (the 2 ziplock bags from the left) and su:m 37 Secret Programming Essence samples (3rd ziplock bag from the left)! I ordered the Sulwhasoo First Care Serum as well but the seller cancelled the order =/


Seller included the following as freebies ^^ A made in Korea mask, 3 sachets of cleansing foam and a temporary tattoo. It kinda funny to include that tattoo as freebie LOL


One thing about this seller is that you need to key in the code of the product manually. So be careful with the numbers!

6. More Sulwhasoo!

The third reason for this haul is because I ran out of toner XD

Again, everything from the seller came in a box!


I ordered the retail size Sulwhasoo Skin Clarifying mask 50ml (left) and Sulwhasoo Balancing Water samples (right).

7. Skirt

This item is ordered by another spree-er. The skirt is true to the picure πŸ™‚


8. Clothes

All these clothes were ordered by other spree-ers

Frankly speaking, I can’t remember which one is from which listing =/ But all of them are of good quality especially the ones from the seller, theDaDa7.

9. Bag

Again, another item ordered by other spree-er. The bag is of acceptable quality and it’s cheap too!



10. Another Skirt

The final item is ordered by another spree-er (like I’ve said, this haul mainly comprises of others’ orders LOL)

I ordered a dark blue skirt (I had checked my order records and it’s really the seller’s mistake) but what came was a BLACK skirt =/


The person who ordered this opted for an exchange and I immediately contacted the Gmarket Customer Service.

As it’s my first time asking for an exchange, I’m kinda clueless but the Gmarket customer service was really helpful and guided me along.

They told me that I would need to take pictures of the order slip/sticker and a picture of the skirt, upload the pictures, send them the link and they’ll take care of the rest!

A couple of days later, I received an email and everything was in Korean. =/

Once again, I sought help from the Gmarket Customer Service and they told me the main gist of the email. The seller actually decided to give me a full refund as the navy skirt was out of stock.

Well, since it’s out-of-stock, I’ve no choice but to accept the refund which means that the skirt is practically free! πŸ™‚ I’m not happy because it’s my skirt (it’s someone else’s!) but I’m glad the seller was really a responsible one πŸ™‚

But what really pleased me was the Customer Service actually took the initiative to help me “apply” for the refund (there were some links in the email but the information were in korean)! It was really helpful of them to translate the email but they went the extra mile to help me get the refund πŸ™‚ Thumbs up for their good service!

I was informed that the refund could take up to a week. The refund actually came in the next day (according to the transaction date) but my bank account only updated it like a week later? Haha not sure if i’m so blind that I didn’t see the refund only after a week =/

All in all, I’m really pleased with how quick and efficient the Gmarket Customer Service is πŸ™‚ And their initiative is commendable!


I’m pleased with the order this time as the shipping took only 3 days and only one of my own order is cancelled (I really wanted to try that First Care serum..)

On top of that, the Customer Service is really good and helped me through the process of asking for an exchange and the refund part.

By the way, I’ve received my next BIG haul already LOL I tell you Gmarket shopping is really addictive! HAHA

      Hi Mandy, seller has taken the product off their listing when I posted and that’s why no link was given 😦 Hope you had better luck finding other sellers!
