Seller Review: Tester Korea

I recently ordered from Tester Korea and wanted to share my experience. I usually order from Memebox and Amazon but I was looking for a specific product. The product (Dear by Enprani Moistfull Booskin) I wanted used to be on both websites, but Memebox has shut down and the product is not available on Amazon. Tester Korea was the website that I found with the best price so I decided to give it a shot.

User experience: As far as using the website, I didn’t have too many problems. The translation was decent but not perfect. I did not have any trouble navigating the website or understanding the details about what I was ordering. The site offers conversion rates, which was very helpful when I was deciding whether or not I could afford items.

Pricing: I liked the pricing on this website. I didn’t see anything that was significantly overpriced, and a lot of the prices were better than Amazon or similar websites. They have discounts on many of the top items on the website, making them more affordable than other options. Unfortunately, there was no free shipping threshold when I ordered so I had to suck it up and pay for shipping.

Selection: I was SO BEYOND HAPPY to find two products that I really wanted on this website. The first was the Dear by Enprani Moistful Booskin, and the second was the Tony Moly Inked Cushion Gel Liner. Both were listed at a reasonable price and it was so nice to finally have these within reach. The website also had a number of interesting items on sale for low prices that I had not tried before, so I took advantage of the opportunity and tried out some new items.

Checkout: I had an easy time reviewing my purchases and verifying how much I had spent. For some reason my order is now showing conversion to won, but it showed how much everything cost in dollars when I originally placed the order. I like that they highlight the specifications of the products so it is less likely there will be a mistake before the package is sent out.

Shipping: I placed my order on May 5, 2017, and received my order on May 26, 2017. I received updates about the package while it was in transit, and the package arrived secure and intact. Three weeks was not bad for a package to travel internationally without paying a huge amount of money.

Packaging: My order was packed perfectly. The box was a sturdy plastic and the items were well organized inside. The company used cute packing peanuts to stuff the box and keep the items secure. Everything arrived safe and sound with no issues.

I really enjoyed ordering from Tester Korea. I was happy to get a new bottle of Moistfull Booskin and to finally try out the infamous Harry Potter inspired eyeliner. I would definitely order from this website again and recommend it to others, though I wish that the shipping was free or that there was at least a price threshold that I could reach to earn free shipping.

Interested in the content of the haul? There’s a blog post for that.

First Impressions: Tester Korea Haul

I am beyond excited about a new haul from Tester Korea! I have only ever shopped for AB products on Amazon, Memebox, and in person. Ordering from new websites is always a little anxiety inducing, especially when they’re located in a foreign country. I decided to order from Tester Korea because I was running low on one of my favorite products and TK had the best value for replacement.

Without further ado..

Here is the whole beautiful order.

Dear by Enprani – Moistful Booskin. This is my all time favorite AB product. It is a moisturizing toner that I use after I wash my face. It smells incredible, does not have any acne triggers, and leaves my skin baby soft. Unfortunately, it is really hard to come by. Fortunately, my first bottle lasted almost an entire year. I was surprised to see that they redesigned the packaging, but happy that the product smelled the same. I think the scent may be a little stronger? Either that, or the strength of the product in my current bottle might have diminished a bit over the last year. I am thrilled to have gotten my hands on another bottle of this magic elixir.

I ordered a handful of Help My Finger Nail Finger Packs by Etude House. I get a ton of hangnails and they are a bad combination with my infection prone skin. I am hoping to use these to reduce dry skin and keep my nails looking healthy. They were very reasonably priced so I ordered a few extras to gift.

Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid – TonyMoly. If you have gross feet you need this product. I have used it once before and although my feet weren’t completely perfect afterward, they helped me reduce the amount of dead skin and cracking/peeling that my feet seem to always be experiencing. I have already used one of these, so I am looking forward to posting the gross results for your enjoyment.

This was my risky addition of the purchase. Water Color Tint by Skinfood. I can’t tell you what shade it is because it is in Korean on the website, but I went with an orange. I have been wanting to try an orange tint because I think it might work well with my complexion. I tried it out when it arrived and liked the results – but I did not have anything in matching shades to wear so I am not sure if it is complimentary. This was also my first AB makeup product purchase!

Acne Pimple Master Patch – CosRX and AC Control Spot Patch – Tony Moly. These are both different versions of hydrocolloid patches. I have used both before – I do not 100% love either version, but these do a great job of helping out when my skin is really bad. Since I am currently going through the painful stages of using a retinoid, having these on hand is a must.

Romantic Rose Hand Cream – ChooNee. This was another random purchase due to low cost. I LOVE the scent of this, but so far I am not impressed by the quality of the lotion. I can safely say already that I would not repurchase.. Unless it’s purely for smelling purposes only.

Speaking of, the scent triggered a smell memory for my uncle. After he took a whiff he said, “It smells like… Mothballs.. The back of my grandma’s closet!” We quickly agreed that he did not mean that the product smelled like mothballs, but whatever his grandmother used to freshen up her clothing. I honestly think it smells terrific, so my great grandmother must have had great taste.

Annnnnd finally!!!

While I did not go to the Tester Korea website for this product, I was absolutely delighted to see that they had the Tony Moly Inked Cushion Gel Liner (also known as the HARRY POTTER EYE LINER) in stock!! I ordered two shades, a purpley shade for me, and black for a friend. I am verrrry excited to finally have my hands on this product and to give it a test run soon! I have never used a purple eyeliner and I have a ton of brown, so I thought I would switch things up a little with the purple. It is so pretty!!

So that’s it! Thank you for taking a look at these items. I will be writing a review of ordering from the Tester Korea website in the near future, but I hope you enjoyed snooping through my purchases now. Which item would you like to see a review of first? What did you have in your recent hauls? Tell me everything!
