Continued from previous article ‘Wishtrend Men Series 2 : Korean Men Are Taking Good Care Of Their Skin – Are YOU?‘
At Wishtrend, we have two brands catered to men who want to look good – and take good care of their skin without any trouble. Introducing the two brands : Gatzmen and Whan. So why did we choose these two brands? Only because it stands out from the current Men’s skincare market.
But Why? Because most of the men’s skincare brands out there are from premium brands : SK-II, Lancome, Gorgio Armani, Clinique, Kiehl’s, Lab Series, SK-II. Most of these skincare brands offers only toners, lotions and are not specialized. They offer a global skincare line, but does not target specific skin problems. This is where Gatzmen and Whan comes in : It is an affordable men’s skincare line that not only offers a huge variety of products from skincare to makeup – and even different line to target different men skin condition!
Gatzmen was launched in MUTNAM, which is the No.1 Fashion Shopping Mall for men’s clothing in Korea. It helps men’s skin to cope with their strenuous lifestyle – smoking, alcohol, etc. Working together with the CRBC ( COTDE Bio Research Centre) which have been doing research on high functional cosmetics for 20 years.
A hot-seller selling about 3,000 pieces of skincare a day Gatzmen has achieved it’s reputation as the leading drugstore men’s skincare. Compromising of currently 20 products at the moment, Gatzmen is planning to introduce another 10 more items by the end of 2012.
What separates Gatzmen from all the men’s skincare line out there is that it doesn’t have only one global line – it has several products catered to several types of men’s skin. Let’s go through the products that are available!
