Even though I’m just getting into makeup, I can’t recall a time when I wasn’t into skincare.
It doesn’t mean I’m the most diligent person in the world when it comes to following skincare regimens though, but I believe in the importance of having a good one. I’m a fan of Korean beauty products because one, they are effective and two, they come in the cutest of packagings. Double win!
So when I heard about Althea, I knew I needed to try it out. During the website’s opening, they had a couple of promos — free shipping for orders amounting to 999 and up and 300 sign-up voucher — and I just had to take advantage of it. Being a good netizen, I also shared Althea with my work colleagues and, unsurprisingly, almost all of us placed orders that very day.
I placed my order on February 16th and, because it came all the way from Korea (and probably also because of the influx of orders), arrived 9 working days later.
The arrival of my Althea box was highly anticipated, but it was also bittersweet because it arrived on the 27th, the same night when I lost my phone. When I came home that night, I immediately saw the box waiting for me, but I wasn’t excited to open it because I was feeling dejected.
Of course I was curious, and of course, I had to use a certain product (two actually — the arm slimming pack and the armpit whitening pack — because it’s beach day the next day), but most of the time, it sat unopened in my room. It wasn’t until I got my new phone when I gleefully, wholeheartedly, dug into it.
