To Whoom It May Concern – History of Whoo Gongjinhyang In Yang Neck & Face Sleeping Repair

Whooohooooo!!!!! I entirely furrrgot that I had this until my lazy ass looked through the drafts for posting on our site and saw this succulent luscious beauty staring back at me. I bought this months prior to leaving to London for the summer, and since this is a fairly thick moisturizing cream, didn’t touch it except for decanting some for Angela.

Now that summer’s truly over, I find myself going back to this thick, luscious, creamy goodness that is The History of Whoo. Whoo has never let me down.

Knock knock, Whoo’s There: The History of Whoo Honey Ginseng Sleeping Mask

I was in Atlanta (do they still call it Hot-lanta?) visiting a baby (always feel compelled to clarify that it’s not mine) and picked up an amazing night/sleeping mask that I’d never seen on the shelves before. As soon as our eyes met, they locked and we were in lurrve. I said “I must have you,” and she said “Only $45 baby” Online is much more and I’ve not seen it often in stores.

Being a fan of The History of Whoo (among my first KoreanBeauty loves) I knew she’s another good one and would never let me down. I was right, Whew (or do I mean whoohoo?)

Whoo-ville! – The History of Whoo Secret Court Lip Balm Set

In the spirit of holiday consumption I picked up this set at Magic Belle in San Gabriel (bitchy and cold salesgirls who didn’t even give me samples btw.) Swoooon! Or should I say swhoon? 🙂

Behold The History of Whoo Secret Court Lip Balm Set

Considering how  expensive The History of Whoo is, I thought it was a bargain at $35. It comes in a mini-sized box and it features a lip balm in the middle, a mini lipstick in their signature etched golden lipstick case, and a mini calligraphy style lip brush.   Continue reading “Whoo-ville! – The History of Whoo Secret Court Lip Balm Set”

“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.

The History of Whoo Gongjinhyang Skin Care Lotion.
I bought the lotion and received the miniature set for “free”. Yeah it doesn’t feel free because the lotion bottle costs $85. But from the rare and exotic list of ingredients, I decided that it’s probably worth it. 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.
