Korean Love From Althea <3

Althea Philippines

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.

It just sat on my desk, all forlorn and lonely

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.

If you noticed, there’s a lip tint in the list of items delivered above. However, it’s not mine — it’s my colleague Julie’s order. And here’s the pretty box:

This was Althea’s Valentine edition box

Okay, here’s the stuff I got! You’ll notice that all of them are affordable, which shouldn’t come as a surprise since I’m the biggest cheapskate this side of the planet.

    I also signed up on the day they officially opened. I’m not much of a makeup person too but I was tempted to look for a bb cream for everday use. I ended up getting the w honey beam cushion and a few facial masks. They’re all great! 🙂

    I have super sensitive skin and I fear I will have breakouts should I try. Super excited to try Althea, too.

    I haven’t tried a lot of Korean products yet. But I’m really curious about them because I’ve been hearing a lot of feedback also about Althea. I hope you’ll review the products. 🙂

    Wow, Those are really pretty good stuff! Can’t wait to hear your reviews on the items, especially the under eye brightener. It’s my problem area! I just love Korean and Japanese make up just like you do!

    That’s a lot of goodies! Interested in the upper arm fitness pack.

    I have heard a lot of buzz about this site and about Korean beauty products. They all look interesting. My only concern is whether they are natural products or laden with chemicals.

    Hindi naman na ta-tax ang box pagdating sa Pinas?
