Have you ever heard of the newish Korean cosmetic brand “The Saem”? It’s one of my favorite inexpensive brands and it’s not because it’s the brand endorsed by Lee Seung Gi (of 1 Night-2 Days and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho). I’ve been buying “The Saem” products since they first opened their branch at Dongdaemun station, replacing “The Face Shop”. My first purchase was their “On The Blackhead” volcanic scrub foam and their makeup remover tissue. From that time, I’ve been purchasing different stuff from them for me and a few customers who are interested in the makeup brand, too.
I love the packaging of “The Saem” products. It looks like it came from the past. The names of their lines also caught my attention – Ardent Lady, Hollywood Top Secret, Marseille Recipe, and so on. It seems like the story of their brand is all about the different recipes of skin care from all over the world that have been tested through time – thus, “wise beauty”.
Last week, I purchased three items from “The Saem” – See & Saw A.C. Control Toner, Spot Clear Gel and Treatment Serum. The purchase was less than 30,000 won but the manager recognized me that he gave me quite a lot of samples, including a shopping bag.
I’ll definitely be back for more of “The Saem”. I might be spending more at their store as I’d like to try their best sellers like Gem Miracle and the O2 Bubble Mask that seems to be a hit. You can check “The Saem” section of my online store (which is a work-in-progress) if you’d like to try some of their products.
