“Whoo” Let the Dogs Out? The History of Whoo’s Gongjinhyang Skin Care Set

Ok I saw Ange’s post and got super duper excited and I’m on vacation so I can post 15 reviews if I wanna!

As part of “field research” for this blog I bought TWO skin care sets from Artland inside the San Gabriel Superstore in LA area: The History of Whoo and the other by PURETEM. Both are from South Korea and have a long list of (mostly natural) ingredients that sound like a botanist’s wet dream. Similar to dogs that can sense epileptic seizures, strange and exotic ingredients in cosmetics can work in inexplicable ways…

I will review The History of Whoo first, since it seems to be the fancy pantsy equivalent to La Mer and I’m giddy at looking at the miniature gift set. Korean cosmetics feel like bargains because you get more products at a relatively reasonable price, including lovely travel sets of miniature bottles. However, some of the high end stuff are in the same price range as La Mer or La Prairie. Thus…I am prone to thinking they are more effective because the Korean Olay equivalents are around $10 a pop.

From what I read on other blogs (http://sulwhasoo-sulwhasoo.blogspot.com/2011/01/history-of-whoo-gongjinhyang-review.html) it is a great line for us 30-something-year-old women.

You’ve Got Snail! My Escargot Obsession – Nature Republic Solution Special Set

Angela and I are two ladies who are obsessed with skin care and beauty products (like every other lady ever). So now that we’ve provided that detailed introduction, WELCOME to our first blog post. After reading thousands (ok maybe half a dozen) blog posts, we’ve decided to come up with another one. Because that’s why.

Angela works as a lawyer and I am a bitchy finance person so we will keep most of our posts short and to the point. Due to the schizophrenic information age, I personally believe that more than a few hundred words WILL bore people and lead them to miss critical information.
So here is my first product review (not the first product I’ve ever loved…oh that beautiful cheapo Oil of Olay). Ange will post the next one right Ange?
