Thankfully, Althea Korea ships directly to your doorstep in partnership with the courier CJ Korea. Their shipping was incredibly fast since I ordered mine Friday night and it arrived in my doorstep Tuesday morning. That was super fast minus the hassle of picking up the parcel at the post office.
You can also order a ton of products from other korean brands that are not locally available in the Philippines :)
Althea Korea is in grand opening phase with their Philippine website so there are a ton of deals right now. I got that huge tub of Aloe Vera Soothing gel for free. Just add the product that they are currently giving away in your cart and it will be shipped to you together with your other orders. The last time I checked, they are giving away a free mascara!
It is because I'm not getting any younger and it finally hit me that I need to take good care of my skin. I have always been lazy in taking care of my skin and yes, I'm guilty of sleeping with makeup on. But I try my best not to do that anymore. I promised myself to take better care of myself in general this year so I'm starting out with skincare.
And what's a better way to start up with a skincare regimen than with Korean beauty products? I mean who doesn't envy the korean's flawless skin?
Anyways, here are the items that I got:
- Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam
- Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel
- Skin Food Salmon Brightening Eye Cream
- The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisture Toner
- The Saem Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Cleansing Water
As usual, I'll be doing a detailed review of the items I got from them in the coming weeks. Is there any product you want me to do a review first?
And also, you gotta sign up at Althea Korea now and make use of their promotions. As a part of their grand opening promotion, they offer free shipping for orders 999php and up, you also get 300php credits once you sign up. :)
