To entertain guests before the program started, they had a giant Yut game set up, but this time the setup is Ra and Gowoori themed.
And let’s talk about the products! In Korea, Ra and Gowoori has like 10000 items covering skincare and makeup, but for the Philippine release, they decided to bring in the items most relevant to people who are suffering from the tropical climate (a.k.a. all of us living here hehehe).
Their foam cleansers are Php390 for 120mL tubes. The Charcoal variant helps to remove whiteheads and blackheads without drying the skin. The Green Tea variant is for lessening redness and inflammation brought about by acne. The White Rice variant is mainly for brightening dull skin.
Their Real Kill 9.9 toners retail for Php580 per bottle. Their Whitening Toner mainly aims to go deep to get rid of dark pigments, and does so without irritating the skin as it is alcohol free. Their Collagen Toner is also alcohol free, and has rosehips, helping to moisturize the skin and make it bouncy.
As for the program proper, Ra and Gowoori’s CEO Lee Eung Kwan raises a toast to all the guests. Ra and Gowoori has had a looooongtime history, as it was essentially a family business he inherited. The business has evolved in many ways, from product offerings to branding, to be the Ra and Gowoori brand we know of today. This is why even though Ra and Gowoori may sound new, the Lee family has had extensive knowledge in running a beauty business.
Leftmost on this photo are Saeli Lee and her husband Lee Sang In, Philippine distributors of Ra and Gowoori. Saeli is also a proud collaborator on a lot of the projects. They are joined by Anna and Isha, the spokesmodel, and CEO Lee.
Saeli spoke about how this brand is Pinoy at heart. A lot of you guys may know her as the ultimate K-Beauty online distributor queen here in the Philippines for several years now. This has put her in a strategic position of having extensive knowledge on K-beauty product selections, and at the same time, Pinoy tastes and preferences. This balance is important, as not every Korean product or formulation will suit Filipino needs and tastes.
And with my fabulous eyeshadow ladies, Helen and Bing! Huhu why can’t I be as tall as Bing guys I’m already wearing 4inch platform shoes here and she’s still towering over me I cryyyy
And with Anna! Prior to this, the last time I saw Anna was in Korea for Charis Beautiful Journey.
