Gmarket Haul #10

A small haul done in May ๐Ÿ™‚

Gmarket 10

Perhaps a hint of what skincare/cosmetic reviews you can expect? Hahahaha

Something Interesting

Those of you who has ordered from Gmarket before definitely know that it’s a MUST to fill in the “Sender’s Name” portion when you make your purchase!

It’s kinda weird since YOU are the one buying for YOURSELF.

But if you use abit of lameness creativity, you can give yourself a “SURPRISE” like what I did for my Gmarket orders!

A parcel from my idol? KWON JI YONG (aka GD from BigBang!)

Gmarket 10

Maybe I’ll put the names of the girls from 2NE1 next time (it’s becoming a HABIT to put GD’s name lol)! NOLZA~!

The Experience

If you’ve read my past nine reviews (OMG? NINE?) on Gmarket, you’ll probably be aware that Gmarket & EMS (DPD initially) are pretty efficient! ^^ So I shall not really harp over the high efficiency of the Gmarket staff & EMS again ^^”

What did I buy? ๐Ÿ™‚

Erm, many things?

Gmarket 10

Nah, not many… cos most of the items belong to other spree-ers!

1. Ryeo Shampoo Travel Kit

Gmarket 10

Ever since the venture into Korean skincare & cosmetics, I’ve started to be interested in their hair care products as well. Look at the black shiny mane of Korean women esp in those oldern dramas like Dong Yi or Jewel in the Palace!

So I started with Amore Pacific’s Ryeo shampoo! This travel kit is really a steal at only 2900WON (excluding the 2500WON domestic delivery charges) and consist of not just a Ryeo shampoo 100ml, but also a Ryeo conditioner 100ml , Happy Bath Natural Whip Cleansing Foam 50g and a Korean Herbal Toothpaste 10g!

What’s more, it comes with a pretty Ryeo ziplock bag:

2. Work Clothes

I’ve started working sometime back and I think my old work clothes wardrobe needs a overhaul and so I bought these new working clothes!

These are pretty cheap (around 10kWON or so) and of decent quality!

3. Etude House

This is my LAST Etude House haul before they decided not to ship to Singapore as they’ve a retail chain here =/

Gmarket 10

I bought the Goodbye Pore Ever Pore Primer Essence (one of their new products then.. and I find it good!), Lip Perfume in Green Apple flavour (tastes like minty green apple to keep your mouth fresh~), Fresh Cherry Tint in 02 (smells like cherry but the tint aint obvious on my pigmented lips… just making it look redder lol) and Color Me Nude Lip Concealer (does its job really!). The free gift is a set of Mini Size U set (serum, toner & moisturiser)!

If anyone wants the links to the items, just let me know~

Till then~

      I have finally finished reading ALL your blog posts :). I’m saving up to start my very own haul :)! Gmarket should really hire you to help market their services!

        Thanks for reading them! There’ll be another one coming soon! LOL

        I dunno if I should feel guilty (cos I’m tempting you to spend) or happy that I managed to convince people how cool is Gmarket despite the language barrier =/ HAHA

    Haha glad to find somebody with the same addiction.
    I actually did the name thing since my first haul but I put in name from my favorite kdrama characters as well as korean artists.
    For hair care, I found ReEn instead of Ryeo. The korean shampoo and conditioner is awesome. My hair look and feel more healthy and i’ve notice less hairlosses.

      Hi Yuri,

      *high-five* I thought I’m the only crazy one who would put the names of korean artists! The Gmarket packing staff porb will have a good laugh when they saw that we put the names as sender LOL

      ReEn sounds good too! Which ReEn did you try? I quite like Ryeo but somehow, I find the fragrance abit too strong for me =/
