Reviews on History of Whoo WhooSpa Hair Essence Set

Our focus is on hair product so we didn't go through the other more popular skincare set. We also found the skincare set might contain deer antler (which we don't support).

Nevertheless, there is very little information found about the Hair Essence Set.

It was developed specifically for all hair types. The History of Whoo WhooSpa Essence Shampoo used an optimized formula for revitalizing imbalanced hair using materials Korean ginseng, and other herbal essence ingredients.

History of "History of Whoo"

In 2003, History of Whoo was created under the LG Household & Healthcare Division with the idea of skincare products fit for an empress.

The Whoo is the shortened form of the word Empress, (in mandarin 皇后 and shortened to 后). Its logo also drew inspiration from the word in its elongated form.

In 2015, History of Whoo was launched in Singapore Tangs Orchard.

From BeautifulBuns, the product range of History of Whoo includes

  • Gongjinhyang: The basic care range which is divided into the following –
    • Gongjinhyang Soo: For hydration and moisture
    • Gongjinhyang Seol: For whitening
    • Gongjinhyang Kun: For men
    • Gongjinhyang Mi: Makeup items
  • Hwanyu: Rejuvenation (something along the lines of going back in time): Anti-ageing
  • Cheongidan: Rebalancing
  • Jinyulhyang: Restoring lost vitality and moisture

It is not suitable for vegan as the main ingredient called the Gongjinbidan uses a combination of 6 items (deer antler, wild thyme, angelica gigas, cornus officinalis, acanthopanax, aspargus cochinchinensis) which is said to bring the below benefits to your skin:

  • Improves blood circulation
  • Improves immune system
  • Repairs wounds (aids in the faster recovery of skin woes)
  • Strengthens your qi (chi)
  • Soothes the skin
  • Rejuvenates the skin
  • Antioxidants
  • Absorbs toxins
  • Improves skin transparency
  • Brightens the skin

Whoo Spa was formerly known as O Hui Spa and a “beauty secret healing hideout” to its Korean customers, providing various facial and body aesthetic programs that guarantee amazing results. Trazy shared that they used other brands of skincare like SU: M37.

In 2017, Tangs launched an "History of Whoo Bichup Duo Self-Glowing Skincare Workshop" event at Grand Hyatt. Ever since we have not found any new promotion on the brand. Tangs still sell the range of skincare product in its website.

We hope to update this post if more people are using the brand as very little information is found. The brand does feel very luxurious and too expensive to appeal to the local market without sufficient marketing.

Efforts have been made to get the information as accurate and updated as possible. If you found any incorrect information with credible source, please send it via the contact us form
