Introducing Brands : Amore Pacific’s Hannule / Hanyul
    Even though Amore Pacific has been a pain in the ass, we’ve been flooded with e-mails regarding questions about the line. So we are going to do a short introduction on the Hannule / Hanyul brand for those of you who are looking for information as there is no english information regarding this brand at all.     Hannule or Hanyul is a brand under the Amore Pacific Group and is touted as the Sulwhasoo for younger skin. The brand targets women at their early 20s to late 30s.     There are 4 distinct lines in Hannule which are encoded by their distinctive colour, namely the Red, Purple, Blue, White and Green.     Kudos goes to Kevin Jang ( which we are trying to get him to feature some articles on this blog ) for most of the information regarding this line.    

1) Red Line – Hannule Keuk Jin line

    This line is a premium care line and is probably the most expensive line in Hannule. It is a skin renewal line, anti wrinkle, anti aging, firming and elasticity line.     The TV-ad for the Keuk Jin line shows that the line can firm the skin for the V-line silhouette of the face.     Not forgetting, the Hannule Keuk Jin Essence was the no.2 best selling product of the Amore Pacific in 2010 ( just behind IOPE’s Super Vital Extra Moist Cream). Not to mention that it even achieved higher sales than the much cheaper Amore Pacific brand ‘Mamonde’ which was 4th rank.     You can watch the TV ad for the KeukJin Essence right here :

      Hi, may i know the full name of the massage essence in Korea? How to search it on gmarket?

      • Hope In A Blog

        hi audrey, sorry for the late reply. Look for 한율 유빛 마사지 에센스 정/ 연 depending on your skin type

    • kev jang

      Hi Hope,

      About the concentration of ingredients inside Hannule products, I believe that Hannule still has less than 100% of natural extracts and ingredients. The concentration that Go Gyeol Jinaek cream touted in its former version of the cream was 70%.

      As for places of availability in Korea, Hannule is mostly sold in Aritaum which is an exclusive outlet store for Amorepacific products. Beautiplex is a LG-affiliated outlet store, and does not carry Hannule.

      Hi, what type of skin is each line suitable for? I’m 30, have slightly sensitive combo (leaning to slightly dry) skin. Which line would you recommend?
      Also, would you be able to provide the Korean for their green tea soap to search for on gmarket please?

      • admin

        Depends on what you are looking. Anti-aging? Basic? Firming?

        • Steph

          Probably for anti-ageing. I don’t have any wrinkles yet, but prevention is best right? :)

          • admin

            Maybe the blue line is the more suitable one for you! I love the Massage Serum off the line which comes in 2 version – one for the dry skin, one for oily combi skiN!

    • Goforgoal100

      hope have can you recommend any products which is great in firming the skin were raving for a hannule product which was good ifor instant tightening effect but i dont remember the name

      • hopeinablog

    • Chanel_nov

      Hi Hope, I’ve been reading over n over on your blog n I’m quite interested in trying on Hanyul products but I’m still confused on which line shall i go to. I’m in my late 20s n i have combination to dry skin n acne prone. I remember you did a post regarding their hydration line as well (can’t find it at the moment :p ), among their dark blue line purple line n hydration line, which line will you recommend for this type of skin? n btw, is Korean herbal skincare suitable for sensitive skin?

      • hopeinablog

        their dark blue line is their basic line! the purple line is for dry skin lacking vitality!

        i would think that the dark blue, or the light blue ( but it only has a cream and mist ) would be more suitable for your skin.

        yeap! it is suitable for sensitive skin too!

        • Chanel_nov

          hey thanks for your reply! btw is the light blue mist purely a hydrating mist or is it to use as a toner like their other line?

          and do you know is hanyul selling at offline counter/shop or are they selling online only?

    • Susan

      How does Hanyul compare to Sooryehan? Personally, after trying out the Sulwhasoo first care line and History of Whoo basic line (yellow), I prefer Sulwhasoo as I find it more hydrating and not too rich and gives the skin a beautiful glow. History of Whoo is definitely thicker. However, I also like Sooryehan’s Choyun line…
