Althea Korea is now in the Philippines! (Haul, Unboxing, and Shopping Experience)

althea korea lands in the philippines
Yes! You read the title right. Althea Korea has finally landed in the Philippines! They ship korean beauty products straight from Korea! That's not it, all their products are 100% authentic and are waaay cheaper compared to the ones you buy from the mall.

Need I say more? Free shipping, authentic products, and competitive prices! You better count me in! I know that even if we're in the online shopping age, most of you are still hesitant to shop online especially when the items will come from another country. Believe me, I've had horrible experiences because of these overly expensive customs taxes. Our customs just suck and I've had numerous horrible experiences to back that statement up!

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.

I am impressed too that everything was carefully wrapped with bubble wraps and everything is sealed too. They made sure that your orders will arrive in perfect condition. No spills, no broken bottles, no cracks in the packaging.

 Told you, everything was wrapped!

You can also order a ton of products from other korean brands that are not locally available in the Philippines :)
althea korea haul
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!

If you'll notice all of my orders are skincare related, no makeups this time!
althea philippines shopping experience
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 cleansing foam

  • Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam

nature republic aloe vera soothing gel

  • Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

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. :)

  9. I've used that toner before and it's pretty good! I like The Face Shop's rice toner; it's super affordable and works pretty well.

    Such an interesting box idea! I've got to check this out. I'm super obsessed with skin care.

  10. Please review the Skin Food Salmon Brightening Eye Cream! I almost bought it back when I was in Malaysia but it's quite pricey so I didn't. Would love to know your thoughts on it.
