Kpoptown (Cosmetics) Haul & Review!


Made an order with kpoptown mainly to try out Etude House's White Moistfull Skin Care Kit, but I also picked up the other two to use for travel. Kpoptown mainly sells merchandise from Korean artists and bands, but they also sell cosmetics and fashion. Some cosmetic brands they carry are Baviphat, Etude House, Holika Holika, Innisfree, Lioele, Skinfood, and Tony Moly. I didn't check the other brands but their Etude House items are priced pretty close to those in Korea but at about $2 more.

I made my order on a Wednesday, it shipped out on Friday, and I received it 12 days later. Shipping was $9.40 for Registered Air Mail. I chose that option instead of the Small Packet option which was cheaper at $5.40 because I wanted the tracking number. In the end the tracking number didn't really help because on the site it never said when it departed from Korea. The USPS website only posted a few stops as well. The order arrived perfectly packaged with plenty of bubble wrap and peanuts. 

Etude House White Moistfull Skin Care Kit $7.90

Kit includes:
-Moistfull White Cleansing Foam (20ml)
-Moistfull White First Essence (15ml)
-Moistfull White Spot Treatment (5ml)
-Moistfull White Cream (5ml)

My dad is vacationing in the Philippines so I asked my cousins to get the White Moistfull Spot Treatment and Eye Roll-On from Etude House. Hopefully everything goes well and they are able to get it! I still ordered this to try out the other items from the line (Cleansing Foam, First Essence, and Cream) and to bring it with me during travel. Out of all the items I bought in this order, I'm most excited to try this one out!

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Skin Care Kit $4.90

Kit includes: 
-Moistfull Collagen First Essence (15ml)
-Moistfull Collagen Facial Freshener (25ml)
-Moistfull Collagen Emulsion (25ml)
-Moistfull Collagen Firming Eye Cream (5ml)
-Moistfull Collagen Enriched Cream (10ml)

I purchased this kit to use for my basic skincare for when I travel. I love how it comes with so many items.

Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam (30ml/1.01 fl oz.) $1.52

Also bought this for travel purposes. I have Etude House's Happy Tea Time Peach Tea Cleansing Foam, but it's way too big to bring with me when I travel (it's 150ml). This had good reviews and is definitely portable. 

Overall, I am happy and ecstatic with my order. It may seem weird that I'm buying samples that most people get for free for buying a certain amount of items, but there isn't an Etude House store in the U.S. and I'm not guaranteed these items when I purchase off of Gmarket. I'll definitely order again from kpoptown if I want to try more samples or only want a few items.
