Before going into this month’s collection, we would like to remind all our Collectors that Hallyupedia is NOT a K-beauty subscription store. However, the name of our brand is “HALLYU”pedia and therefore it is a little difficult to isolate Hallyu with skincare. Afterall, it is the driving force that makes the Korean wave what it is today.

We emphasize that our goal is to cover as wide range of categories and this includes the category of K-beauty. The 2017 July Collection [Sun Care Kit] is curated to celebrate the awesome summer season while helping our Collectors to avoid the harmful side effects of the sun’s UV rays.

The Sun Care Kit is a skincare based collection (no makeup or color based items) and it is completely gender neutral. We at Hallyupedia would like to encourage all Collectors (both male and female) to pro-actively preserve both beauty and health.

*All items in the Sun Care Kit are full sized products (There are no sample sizes).

Product 01:

My Sunny | All-In-One SPF 45+

Brand:  Tony Moly
Usage: #face #daily.use #indoors
Size: 100 ml

  • Collectors will receive 1
Tony Moly’s My Sunny All-in-one Sun is a great UV protector for casual daily use. It’s a multi-tasking sun cream with 54% moisture base, which relax irritated skin from the harsh UV rays, revise skin tone, and supply moisture and nutrition. Chamomile flower and aloe vera extracts and other raw organic ingredients supply moisture and helps your skin to relax. The All-in-one Sun is a light/mild sun cream so it’s a perfect fit for every day use for Collectors with sensitive skin. Again, this product is for casual daily use, so it’s highly recommended for the long hours spent indoors such as the workplace or a desk job. For the time spent outdoors under direct sun exposure, read on to product #2.

Product 02:

My Sunny | Perfecting Sun Block SPF 50+

Brand:  Tony Moly
Usage: #face #outdoors
Size: 100 ml

  • Collectors will receive 1
Tony Moly’s My Sunny Perfecting Sun Block is the next upgraded version of the previous All-in-one Sun. It features SPF50+ which shields harmful UVA/UVB rays with 60% moisture base. Due to stronger protection this product is great for the long hours spent outdoors under direct sunlight exposure such as the beach, barbeque parties or any other sort of outdoor activities. The Perfecting Sun Block received lots of awesome reviews by Korean beauty bloggers for its non-sticky and fresh texture. But because it’s more heavily formulated (compared to the All-in-one Sun) we do not recommend this product for daily use, unless you really are spending all day outside under the sun.

Product 03:

Perfect UV Sun Stick SPF50+

Brand:  Medi Flower
Usage: #face #daily #layering #touchup
Size: 16 ml

  • Collectors will receive 1
Medi Flower is an up and coming rising brand here in Korea. It’s not as prestigious as some of the other brands in this month’s collection, but they are highly acknowledged for their medicinal ingredients for skin revitalization and its anti-wrinkle line. Medi Flower’s Perfect UV Sun Stick is an item you would want to carry in your bag at all times for touch-ups and re-layer your sun protection every 3-4 hours throughout the day. However, it should not be your primary base application of sun block. For the most effective daily sun care, it is best to apply the Tony Moly My Sunny All-in-one Sun [product 01] to start your day and consistently reapply the Sun Stick incrementally every few hours.

Product 04:

Smart Solution 365 Whipping Sun Gel SPF50+

Brand:  It’s SKIN
Usage: #face #body
Size: 100 ml

  • Collectors will receive 1

Moving on to body care. It’s SKIN’s Smart Solution 365 Whipping Sun Gel is a gel based sunscreen that’s still smooth and moist in texture (almost like whipping cream) and provides sun protection (SPF50+) for both face and body. But because the Whipping Sun Gel is a bit on the heavier side, we do not recommend it for face application if you have normal to oily skin. For face, we recommend the Tony Moly My Sunny line and the Medi Flower Perfect UV Sun Stick (Product 01, 02, 03).

This product contains 6 different tree complex for moisture effect (bamboo, baobab, drumstick tree, cypress, magnolia, birch) and 5 different organic skin care extracts (green tea, chamomile, edelweiss flower, bifida ferment complex, aloe vera). This product does not contain mineral oil, tar color and, polyacrylamide, which is a very big plus for our Collectors with sensitive skin.

Product 05:

Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel

Brand:  The Face Shop
Usage: #face #body #hair
Size: 300 ml

  • Collectors will receive 1
The Face Shop’s Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel is formulated with 99% aloe extract from Jeju Island which soothes sunburns, rehydrates and replenishes the skin without leaving any sticky residue. It can be used for various purposes such as for moisturizing, soothing, as a facial pack and for after-sun care. This product comes in a gel form and its suitable for every skin type. Best of all NO: paraben, benzophenone, animal oil, mineral oil and artificial coloring.
For after-sun care: apply a generous layer on to the skin and leave on for about 20 minutes before washing off. For moisturizer: apply a thin layer on your skin and gently pat for absorption. We recommend our Collectors to store in a refrigerator or cool place for the best results.

Product 06:

Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist

Brand:  Nature Republic
Usage: #face #daily.use
Size: 150 ml

  • Collectors will receive 1
Think of Nature Republic’s Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist as a more portable version of the Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel. Who would want to carry a large 300 ml tub of gel all day? It’s a hassle. Although they are different brands, the two products have the same functions and benefits. The Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist is formulated with 92% Aloe Vera leaf extract that provides an amazing soothing and moisturizing effect to your skin without the stickiness. The vitamins in Aloe Vera such as vitamin C and E along with other minerals rejuvenate the skin and protect against UV rays while it soothes sun irritated skin. You can also apply the mist on your face, body and hair.

When using on your face, spray 10-15 cm away. Spray frequently and consistently to moisturize dry skin and protect from harshness of the environment.

Product 07:

Real Nature Mask Sheet | Aloe

Brand:  Nature Republic
Usage: #face #moisture #soothing

  • Aloe | for soothing & moisture (23 ml)
  • Collectors will receive 1 sheet
You think you had enough Aloe Vera for just one box? Well~ just in case, keep this in your stash when you need it. It’s best for those who go on short business trips but find it a hassle to pack a large tub of gel for a couple of days. Slip this Aloe Real Nature Mask Sheet by Nature Republic and use it for your night care at the end of the day. There’s 23 ml of essence, which is a lot of essence. Use the remaining essence for your neck, shoulders and arms.

After cleansing and applying toner, carefully align and leave the mask sheet on your face for 10-20 minutes. Then gently pat for absorption.

Product 08:

Real Nature Mask Sheet | Royal Jelly

Brand:  Nature Republic
Usage: #face #elasticity #luster

  • Royal Jelly | for skin elasticity & luster (23 ml)
  • Collectors will receive 1 sheet
For those who don’t know what royal jelly is, it’s a very nutritious substance with a composition similar to pollen, created by worker bees and served to the queen bees (or fancier word for honey). The royal jelly extracts from Nature Republic’s Real Nature Royal Jelly Mask Sheet provide nourishment and skin nutrition, reduce wrinkles and enhances luster for elastic skin. Another awesome end-of-the-day night care! However, as a precaution, because it is to enhance skin glow and elasticity (rather than soothing and calming the skin) the formula tends to be a bit more heavy and oily than the Aloe mask sheet.

After cleansing and applying toner, carefully align and leave the mask sheet on your face for 10-20 minutes. Then gently pat for absorption. Again, 23 ml of essence, which is a lot of essence, use the remains of the essence for your neck, shoulders and arms.

Provence Calendula Aqua Cooling Sun Spray SPF50+

Brand:  Nature Republic
Usage: #face #body
Size: 150 ml


The Provence Calendula Aqua Cooling Sun Spray by Nature Republic was highly considered a MUST-HAVE SUMMER ITEM amongst our team. But sadly, there is a very (very) long list of countries where the customs office (of each of these countries) strictly restricts aluminum canned spray type of products from being mailed in. The reason for this is because usually liquid solutions encased in a aluminum spray are flammable (like hairspray). Therefore, we had no choice but to find a substitute product. The Aqua Cooling Sun Spray will be replaced with product 04: Smart Solution 365 Whipping Sun Gel by the brand It’s SKIN. Our Hallyupedia Team has notified all our Collectors who reside in the restricted countries. If you have not been reached, then the Aqua Cooling Sun Spray has been included and your orders are on schedule. All orders after July 5th will have the newly replaced Whipped Sun Gel. If you have any questions, inquiries or confusions, please do not hesitate to contact the Hallyupedia Box Team.
