Woohoo, buying from Gmarket is easier than i thought! I’ve registered an Gmarket account just to check on the original price of Korean skincare product and i received an international shipping fee promotion email earlier. Without a second thought, i just clicked and ordered!
First order, just getting some Korean made clothes. Tips: If you are looking for clothes in GMarket, do check on the source of the clothes, some of them might came from China. No point to use Gmarket to get made from China clothes while you can TAOBAO it, right?Korean style casual tops. Top notch quality.
Gray sleeves tops: 10,900 WON
Black stripe tops: 5,900 WON
Local shipping: Free
Ship to Malaysia: 5,000 WON
Total: RM 57.59
It tooks 3-4 days from Korea to Malaysia. Gmarket is using EMS as courier partner and POSLAJU took over when the parcel arrived in Malaysia.
And, my second order!
Guess what i bought?The famous Korean brand Shampoo. I am using the red ginseng Ryo shampoo at the moment and fell in love with it. 1 bottle 500ml Ryo shampoo + 1 bottle 500ml Ryo rinse + 2 bottles 180ml Ryo treatments cream only cost me 16,900 WON. It’s cheaper than i bought in Korea! EZN shaking pudding hair color. I’ve bought a Dutch Espresso and a Deep Purple Brown. The reason i am getting this hair pudding is because a few beauty youtubers have been recommending this products. The hair color turned out evenly and does not damage the hair according to them. I’ve seen a youtuber with dark, close to black hair dyed her hair to dark purple without bleaching the hair. The color really does come out and quite long lasting according to her. Two box of hair pudding with 12 pieces facial mask [ free gift ] and 1 hair mask [ free gift ] cost 18,500 WON and free local shipping. Most of the eshops on GMarket offer free local shipping. I am actually looking for whitening body lotion and this LadyKin White Illuminative Body Cream came out as the top ranking product from the search. Product leaking when arrived but not much damaged. I’ve been using this body cream for a week. This body cream cannot be used as normal body lotion or body cream but more to body BB cream.It makes your skin brighter for awhile, not suitable to use as night lotion but no SPF protection. Not moisturising and the cream is not easy to be absorbed, also the cream leaves white stain on your clothes. Despite so many good reviews online, i think this body cream is pretty useless and waste of money. 2 bottles for 9,900 WON, free local shipping.
The second order cost me RM155.15 and i used credit card to check out. I think i need to blacklist GMarket website else i will keep browsing and ordering.
Most of the products are with english description and instruction if you browse on GMarket global website. You just have to search, select, put on cart and make payment. Wait for the products to reach the warehouse, GMarket will packed them together and send to Malaysia.
