Okay, first of all… I have been waiting so long to write this post (I’ll get back to this in a moment) because I have finally completed my set of Missha’s MISA Geumsul line (pictured above) and look forward to using all of the products together. Secondly, I have been looking at the luxury brand Sum:37 for quite some time now. I got to try a sample packet of the Secret Programming Essence (one of their best-sellers of all time) and I just wanted more! So now I have the miniature gift set to play with and get a feel for more of their Secret Repair products.
1.) Su:m37 – Secret Repair Special Gift Set
- Secret Repair Toner 20ml
- Secret Repair Emulsion 20ml
- Secret Repair Concentrated Cream 10ml
- Secret Programming Essence 12ml
- Secret Repair Concentrated Serum 8ml
2.) Missha – MISA Geumsul Special Set (II)
- Geumsul Skin Toner 145ml
- Geumsul Milky Emulsion 100ml
- Geumsul Rejuvenating Cream 50ml
- Geumsul Rejuvenating Essence 7ml (Miniature)
- Geumsul Skin Toner 30ml (Miniature)
- Geumsul Milky Emulsion 30ml (Miniature)
- Geumsul Rejuvenating Cream 10ml (Miniature)
3.) Missha – MISA Geumsul Vitalizing Eye Cream ® 30ml
Thoughts on Pricing:
1.) Su:m37 – Secret Repair Special Gift Set – $23.65 USD
I bought this long before I decided to hop on Ebay and see how the prices might differ. Painfully gypped. I could have bought this same little set for a much lower price on Ebay.
2.) Missha – MISA Geumsul Special Set (II) – $59.53 USD
I personally think this was a great deal. It happened to be on sale during a 30% discount, but even without the discount it would have still been cheaper than buying straight off of MisshaUS for the pretty penny price of $110 USD.
3.) Missha – MISA Geumsul Vitalizing Eye Cream ® 30ml – $31.14 USD
The original price for this on MisshaUS is $45 USD so while this was a decent price drop, it was still nothing compared to the discount I got on the MISA Geumsul Special Set (II).
Total amount USD 151.24 + Shipping USD 25.91 – Discount USD 44.92 = Order total USD 132.23
That shipping price… ouch 😦
Condition of Products Upon Arrival:
Everything was securely placed in an adequately sized box and wrapped with bubble wrap. No complaints here. There was a small dent in the small box of my Su:m37 Gift Set, but with the way the products were wrapped, I am led to believe it must have happened before it was even shipped. All of the products themselves were in mint condition upon arrival.
I made this order on June 20, 2017 and it arrived on July 27, 2017. It appeared to actually arrive in Canada a few days after it was shipped, but Canada Post sucks, so what can you do? My mom also ordered from BeautyBoxKorea and received it fairly quick (~two weeks) in the US.
Samples Received with Order:
I was disappointed by how few free samples (not pictured) I received with my order. Jolse tends to send more if you spend more, so imagine my shock when I only received a measly three samples from BeautyBoxKorea after having spent over a hundred dollars on their site!
Will I Purchase from BeautyBoxKorea Again?
I can easily imagine myself buying from BeautyBoxKorea again ONLY IF they have a product I am desperate for and cannot be found on any other site. But honestly? I do not plan on it.
Side note: Remember that I bought these products to have them sent to Canada, so shipping prices and arrival times may differ depending on where you live.
