I am super exhausted. I received a package from Wishtrend last month for review purposes as I am now an advanced affiliate. I was supposed to post this sometime back.
This is my first WishTrend haul. I had won their giveaway almost a year back but this is the first time I placed an order with the store credits provided. Thank You Wishtrend Team.
I decided that I wanted to control breakouts on my skin so I ordered some items for acne prone skin off Wishtrend from their Free Shipping Zone. WishTrend charges you a nominal fee for shipping but the products in the Free Shipping Zone are eligible for free shipping with no extra charges.
If you don’t know, WishTrend is a one stop destination for all your K-beauty needs. They are a Korean retailer that stocks Korean skincare and makeup goodies. WishTrend has a monthly box called a Wish Box which is not based on subscription but instead, you can buy this box whenever they release it or comes in stock. They will release new themed boxes every month. They have had some interesting boxes in the past and I am sure it will continue in future.I missed out a few nice boxes. I am yet to try a Wishbox.
The WishTrend website is user friendly, easy to navigate, browse and place an order. It loads quickly within a decent time . Unlike other Korean Websites, each product has a detailed description in English apart from the Korean one. It is extremely useful for people who cant read Korean like me. The pictures on the website showcase the actual product, packaging, look and feel as well its effect on the skin after use. These Before and After images are helpful in deciding whether to opt for that product. The product range is huge. There are plenty of brands, categories and product ranges to choose from. There are some exclusive brands like Elishacoy, Klairs and Skin Lab,OST,Benton etc available on WishTrend. Klairs is my favourite brand out of all. Most of the products are in stock and available except for the wish boxes.
I placed my order on 30th September , it shipped on 6th October, and I received it by 15th October. So, it took about a week reach India via standard shipping which is good considering it was shipped from Korea. I received free Standard Shipping because my order had all the products from free shipping zone. Shipping time was estimated to be 7-20 business days. The package also had to go through a customs clearance. Shipping and delivery was prompt.
Everything came in a cardboard box with the Wish logo. It had an invoice and customs declaration. Every item was bubble wrapped. All the items were covered well and packed with care. The entire package was sealed well. Though there is nothing fancy about the packaging, my goodies reached secure and intact. There was no damage or loss due to transit.
Items I ordered:
I ordered these two products. I will be reviewing these individually but I want to show you a sneak peak now. Stay tuned for a full review. I got a sample of Elishacoy Snail Cream.
ENCA Acne Drying Pinky Powder –
ENCA Acne Drying Pinky Powder is perfect for anyone looking for acne treatment. It is a fast-acting formula that reduces acne and pimples. It contains effective ingredients soothe, relieve and reduce acne pimples.
COSRX Blackhead Silk Finger Ball –
When it comes to acne prone skin, you’ll need a few tools. But these tools may be harsh on skin. I have brushes that I use for my skin care routine.I know that there’s the clarisonic and other electronic facial brushes like Magnitone that I own but I wanted to just try this simple product out. These seemed effective to me. These are cheap and best for removing blackheads.
This 100% natural silk cocoon clarifies the skin and making it look overall younger. Massage your face with silk balls to regain or retain its suppleness and youthfulness while gently clearing away dirt.
The customer service is excellent. They always respond quickly and to the point. They are very friendly and courteous. I mailed them to let them know that they have to mark my order as gift and put in a low value. They replied saying they always do and they will take care of it. It was surprising coz whenever I mailed this to other websites they respond negatively in a harsh tone.
You get free samples along with your order. You get it from other websites too but only one or two. I was sent truckloads of samples by WishTrend before and there were 10+ minimum samples. I got a bag full of samples when they sent my giveaway prize. WishTrend is kind and generous.
I was sent a tracking number and I was updated regarding my order via emails. I didnt have to pay any customs.
I must admit that I’m glad that I found WishTrend. I so love WishTrend. They share some great Korean Skin Care and Beauty tips.
WishTrend doesnt sell Korean Brands that we know and can find in many other websites such as Etude House, Skin food, Holika Holika, The Face Shop, Tony Moly and others. They offer a variety of brands that are less known to us but famous there and is available for a reasonable price. WishTrend offers unique choices be it skin or hair care and makeup. If you look through the site you could find bigger better deals and discounts. They have a special section for sale, BEAUTY STEAL and free shipping.
