Will someone give a shout if they find this to buy elsewhere for a decent price? I really want to try and am sad that mine are mucky! I'll look tomorrow but I don't have time tonight. Thanks!

I know Peach and Lily carries it, as well as Beauteque and Urban Outfitters. I haven't checked to see if any others have it, but I know I've seen it carried in those stores while browsing.

So I'm wondering if these toners could potentially be fakes. It's interesting to me that they're charging half the price that everywhere else does and offering free shipping. Not to mention, there are Mizon fakes out there.   On top of that, considering the bottle I purchased from Beauteque has a different stamp on the bottom than these contaminated ones...I'm wondering if there's something more to this than just a bad batch of toner.

I think there was just a Reddit AB discussion about how the packaging changed.

I just talked to my Fiance about this and he's convinced it has something to do with the way the products are stored and for how long. He works for a company like Aveko, except they buy/transport things from the US to Russian clients.

 

he said because warehouses aren't normally temperature regulated, the products being stored there can be exposed to extreme heat and cold for long periods of time, which can effect them negatively. They've apparently thrown away quite a few perishable food items, beauty products etc that were sitting too long, even before their expiration dates, due to the temperatures and how long they had been sitting in the warehouse. 

 

This may not be the answer to the issue, but it's definitely something to think about!

The AB sub just discussed a Cosrx product having a really freaky white blob/growth in it--that product came from RRS. hmm Off to hold my bottles up to lights...

Did the packaging change according to people who bought bottles from somewhere other than Rose Rose Shop though? (I would read it but reddit gives me a headache lol)
 

Because it would be helpful to know if someone got a different packaged bottle from somewhere other that Rose Rose Shop. Over the last 24 hours I've heard more and more things about issues from RRS products, and more importantly, I'm still wondering how they can offer free shipping on mizon products, and prices that are literally sometimes 50% less than everywhere else. I can understand them being slightly less expensive if they buy in a large amount...but I'm just not convinced that there isn't something fishy going on here.

It's funny--someone in Seoul on the AB sub actually went to the Mizon HQ--they were trying to find a shop that sells Mizon, couldn't find one, and accidentally went to the HQ. Maybe the OP would know who to ask?

 

I wouldn't be surprised if RRS has a special deal with Mizon tbh. They'd have to to offer things so low.

Lol was gonna say fanserviced did a post on the difference in the symbols... @ is a very useful lady to know... Has magically mystery smoky tours in ny too lol

What can I say, I'm so hot that I look at paper and it goes up in flames. I tell myself this when I look at my finances and try to justify another haul at least ("I swear it just went POOF!").

My funky Son&Park foundation stick order was cancelled by Korea Depart (luckily I raced to the computer and asked for a refund for the two dinky lip products I threw in my order as add-ons) so I did some feel-better shopping at Wishtrend. (keep in mind that I ordered the foundation stick on eBay this morning) GROAN Gotta say, Wishtrend's prices aren't as dirt cheap as RRS, but I don't hear about them having freshness issues and their free shipping speed is superior to registered mail. I think that their promotion style can be a bit smothering (it's why I stayed away so long), but they do have some nice stuff.

All this fake talk freaks me out especially after the funky ass Elizavecca mask I got from those dolts at HonestSkin, ugh.

I'd be happy to send you a bottle of mine if you wanted it, or maybe you don't after all. Let me know.

I will! If we don't get some concrete answers I've gotta say I'm still a bit suspicious lol

There do seem to be quite a few fakes floating around, and I'm not saying these are fakes, but it's good to be aware of. Reddit gives me a headache too, hate the layout!

I emailed Beauteque and asked for their batch numbers on their Mizon toner.  Since we think they get their stuff from RRS, I don't want to buy it from them if it's the same bad batch I just bought.

THANK YOU! I'm going to order it from them after they get back to you if you don't mind posting what they say.

Someone in the fb addicts group bought the toner from TK and theirs has the black floaties. It might be the same person from reddit, no idea. What is interesting is the response she got from TK. It's the exact opposite of the one from RRS.

    • Oh,  I want on vacation. It will make me happy)
    • I have some more low quality photos to post! 😏 Bottom photo shows my little Avon haul. You can see my Rare Pearls deodorant, and also my pink Himalayan salt infused toothbrush, from a Korean brand called Perioe. Also my belif samples. Very pretty little haul, making buying necessary hygiene items a little treat. (See post above - talks about how New Avon - the United States Avon - was purchased by a major, major Korean beauty company, and now has all kinds of beautiful Korean cosmetics along with the classics and Avon favorites! Very interesting development.) Top photo: Finally finishing some little samples and starting some new ones from the stash! I finished Freeman pink salt and cucumber masque packet (it took weeks to finish), and I'm now using the Eve Lom Rescue Masque mini tube. I love the Eve Lom masque.  Finished the Porefessional mini, and ready to begin the Porefessional Pearl Primer sample. Excited to try that. Only one more application left of Blow Pro Weather Girl mini and Yves Rocher Body Scrub mini! Finished the mini Yves Rocher At the Heart of Pine Trees Shower Gel mini, and have started using up the Argan Rose shower gel mini!  My job is again encouraging voluntary cut in hours, so I'm working one day less per week. Also this week I lost a lot of time/income due to the flu. Everyone in my office has it. That's okay, because I'm going back to my seasonal job in about ten days! I'm so excited! I'm putting together a new timetable! That will help me pay off my credit card for sure. And I love the job.  I even made a dentist appointment at a dental office I've been wanting to try. I'm trying to make the most of the extra time I have from the hours cut. Can't wait for March.       
    • The experience of loans and microloans, I have only negative. After I paid 300% of the amount I originally took, I told myself that I'd rather rely on luck than take this loan again. Therefore, I advise you to better approach the choice of a game resource here https://bingo77usa.com/free-bingo-games and try your luck, which always smiles for beginners.
    • Hello Everyone, Nice to have seen this website and forum. My name is Mitch and I've been wanting to get an eyebrow trimmer, but have no clue of what to use. The wired shopper made recommendations, but of course, I am hoping to have real people talk. If you can share your experience with eyebrow trimmers or if you have a brand you can recommend, I would really appreciate it.   Thank you so much. Mitch
