Haul: Korean cosmetics from Jolse.com

Korean cosmetics shopping from Jolse.com
Korean skin care and makeup products have been making waves around the globe over the last few years. Names such as Etude House, Tony Moly, Holika Holika, Innisfree, Nature Republic.... I've been lusting after them for a while and finally went on a Korean shopping binge from 3-4 websites from the region, so much so I'm on a shopping ban till December.
Jolse.com had some very good offers - if you buy for $20 you get a nose pack. If you buy for $50, you get those plus free registered shipping and a sheet mask as well. If you buy more than two products, you get six samples and a blotting paper pack. Moreover, the prices of Korean beauty products were different on different websites and some of the items on my wishlist were priced lowest on Jolse, so I went in for the kill.
My box arrived today and inside were products from Korean beauty giants including:
1. Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara
2. Holika Holika Baby Silk Foot Mask Sheet
3. Tony Moly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar
4. Etude House Rich Butter Foot Mask
5. Mizon Special Therapy Good Night Sleeping Mask
6. Missha Glitter Nail Polish
7. Missha Glitter Nail Polish

Everything from Jolse came in nicely sealed. I've been wanting a sleep mask for a while now, since there is very little time for a mask during the day. I love the many options you get for Korean sleep masks... something other brands can't boast about.

My Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes is nearing the end of its journey in my stash (reviewed here) and nothing else has come close, not even Le Volume de Chanel or Inimitable Intense. So I thought I'd try the Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara once the Lancome runs dry, especially because the wand is round and it promises doll-eye effects.

I've been wanting some foot masks that you can slip on and off like socks, ever since I saw a photograph of Louise wearing one on her blog (Louise, if you're reading this: Hope you're well, and plenty more Korean beauty hauls coming up after you made me jealous through this year). So I picked two - one from Etude House and one from Holika Holika - and hope the sheet-socks will cool my feet down nicely.

The Tony Moly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar was one of those indulgences that you don't need, but you want. I've been seeing Korean skin care and makeup hauls on Musings Of The Muse as well and she has all these cute bunny and cat tubes. As a rule, I'm not a fan of solid perfume, but hope this works. It would be great for travel without worrying about aerosol and liquids on flights. How cute is that packaging?

I was just a few dollars away from $50 and figured I would get free registered shipping and some more samples, so I added two Missha polishes to my cart. One is lavender/violet bar glitter and the other is multi-glitter. No fishing needed for either, at first swatch. These are my first Korean nail polishes... I'll swatch them soon.

Jolse sent me the promised blotting paper pack which has 26 sheetlets, and a sheet mask and a nose pack. I also got the promised six free samples, which include perfume essence, face gel, BB Cream, massage cream, illuminator and sunscreen. All aboard into my travel pack except for the sachets that I can't use.

A word about Jolse.com's customer service. I placed my order on October 24; it was shipped out on the 25th and arrived today. I was able to track it online and they did the customs declaration according to my instructions. And they had individually wrapped everything in bubblewrap since international mail can be harsh.
I really liked everything about Jolse.com (nope, not PR) and will definitely shop from them again. 
Before I get into the stamping nail art tutorial in detail this weekend, I'll quickly share yet another fabulous international beauty box I discovered, in my next post. 
  1. This is really..umm... so cute!! I am normally not into 'cute' stuff, but couldn't help smiling at the perfume bars!
    The shipping sounds really nice. Might have to keep the site on my radar

    1. You mean the Phenomen'Eyes? L'Oreal's Telescopic Explosion was supposed to be a dupe for that. It was meant primarily for separation and definition (who knew they did different things?) I'm in love with doll-eye lashes right now, and am using Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes at the mo... the Holika Holika claims to be another doll-eye maker. Fingers crossed!

  7. Nice selections! Is the foot mask for moisturizing or peeling? I recently bought a peeling foot mask (by TonyMoly) but I haven't got around to using it yet.

    1. Sorry, I should have mentioned that. They're both moisturising - the socks you slip on and off. I've never tried a peeling mask.... do they make the rough skin peel or does the mask alone peel?

  11. Hi renu. ..This is payel...i ordered an essence from jolse but when I opened the parcel, I saw it was completely broken as it was very poorly packed . Is there anything I can do to claim the money back or can I ask them to send another one? I have complained but no answer from their side. I paid through PayPal. I am really heart broken...i would appreciate if you reply.thanks.

    Hi Payel, have you taken photos of both the packaging and the broken product and sent them those? Also, please send them via DM on Facebook, as well as post them on their page (as a comment, if you cannot post independent messages) and attach the pictures as well. Also tag them on Twitter/any other social media they might have. It's almost the weekend. If they do not respond by mid-next week, you can file a Paypal case resolution (product not as described).
