#7 - TesterKorea Mini Haul Review!

Hi there! It's almost September... school is about to start! t_t

It's important to look good on the first day of a new school year right? So I did a mini haul at TesterKorea on makeup products :}

So a timeline for you girls first! (Click to enlarge)

I chose registered airmail (the cheapest option) to ship out my order, and took about 7 business days to get to me. The processing speed was actually pretty fast! Excluding the public holiday, it only took 1 business day to ship out my items. 

So my package came like this!

Really, it's wrapped tightly with plastic tape. Guess it's to make it waterproof? But that makes the cardboard un-recyclable... since I can't get the tape off the box :{

Now have a look on the inside!

Nicely packed, eh? I've ordered 3 regular products plus some samples, all the regular products are wrapped in bubble wrap. The samples are in a small plastic bag.

Moving on to the content of my mini haul plus gift samples ;}

This time I bought:
- Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Primer 
- It's Skin Babyface One-step Base (Green)
- It's Skin Babyface Jelly tint (Tomato Red)
- Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer #3 Samples x10
- Etude House Correct and Care CC Cream (Silky) Samples x10
- Skin79 White Reviving Skin Radiance Solution Samples x30

I've read that some buyer received SkinFood cotton pads as freebies to take up the space inside the box, but I didn't get any :/ Maybe it's because my haul was too small that they all fit in well in a small box...

Anyway, they are still generous with freebies!

Look at that! They gave me testers for toner, emulsion, ampule and cream! A complete basic skincare regime! That's thoughtful isn't it? 

So the shipping and delivery at TesterKorea was very smooth and pleasant! Now I'll comment on the price and service in the following summary :)

- List price close to retail price in Korea
- New members receive a 10% off coupon - I used it on the primer!
- Customer service was fast  - I submitted an enquiry related to payment method, and got the reply very promptly.
- Has many shipping options (check my last post for details)
- Generous with freebies!
- Can pay South Korean Won directly via credit card, which usually has the best exchange rate.

- Some products go sold out very quickly, and the restocking might take a few days
- List price is in South Korean Won, might be troublesome to some

Overall I'm really pleased with TesterKorea! Have you bought from them before? Tell me what you think! ;D

  1. Nice haul. I love buying at testerkorea. The items always arrive so fast. They put the cotton pads inside, when the package is larger and they need to fill the space. :)
