Korean Beauty Shopping at Althea Philippines! (Haul + Unboxing)

Althea Korea is a popular Korean Beauty shopping site that ships internationally from Korea to Malaysia, Singapore, and soon to launch here in the Philippines! They carry popular and trendy products from brands such as Laneige, Banila Co., Innisfree, Tony Moly, Etude House and more.

I would like to thank Ms. Tammy Lim of Althea Korea for inviting me to be a beta-tester and be one of the first few to shop on Althea Korea Philippines. It was as easy a pie to order on their website. 

Althea Korea offers free shipping for orders Php 1,500 and up. Imagine how much moola you'll be saving when you don't have to pay for the shipping fee from Korea to our country, right?; Products are 100% guaranteed authentic and are picked from Althea's warehouse in Korea; The prices of their products are also quite cheaper. Products distributed here in the Philippines are just too damn expensive, so I really prefer buying online; And what's distinct about their site? They offer a 30-day refund. If you are not satisfied with your order or it is too far from your liking, you can send it back and they will refund to you the total value of the product together with the postage fee. You don't have to deal anymore with a product you don't like and you know that wouldn't work for you.

Please see photos below for you reference.

Here's how the website looks like, it is very easy to navigate and you won't have a problem scanning through their various products.

Add all the items you want to buy and hit checkout, and your done! Super easy as pie!

Since Althea is based in Korea, all items are carefully picked and packed from their warehouse. As for my order, it arrived 8 days after ordering. Super fast delivery considering it came all the way from Korea.

My order came in this pretty pink Althea box which can be used as storage for other things.

The items are carefully packed with bubble wrap. I know this might seem too OC, but I noticed that the products didn't have any finger prints nor any kind of dirt in it. There are no scratches either. Products all came in very good condition. Two thumbs up Althea!

Tadah! Here are the items I got! It felt like Christmas all over again!

(L-R) IOPE Air Cushion XP (Cover) 21 15 g + 15 g refill, Tony Moly Backgel Eye liner Long Brush in Brown, It's Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effector, Free samples of Etude House Big Cover Concealer BB. 

Of course I had to get something that I can't easily get here in the Philippines, so I got the IOPE Air Cushion XP. I always see this brand shown online as well as in popular Korean beauty shows so I have to try it. So far so good, I actually feel like I prefer this over the other cushions I've tried. Still, I'm testing the waters, if this turns out to be the best among the previous cushions that I've used, I'll let you guys know and post it here!

Another product that I want to try is this It's Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effector. I'm currently using this   and have incorporated it in my skincare routine, I hope it works well because the reviews online are quite promising. 

And lastly this Tony Moly Backgel Eye Liner in Brown. I haven't used a gel liner for years now because it was such a pain to put on back when I was just starting applying makeup, but yes, I was wrong. It's easy to apply like my liquid liner. You will see me now wearing my famous cat eyes and breaking boys' heart.

Buying at Korean beauty stores automatically means you get free samples! Yay!

Thank you Althea Korea for making Korean beauty shopping as convenient as this. Advance congratulations on your launch! Chukahae! Althea Korea will officially launch on February 15, 2016 so be sure to get your smart phones and laptops ready for special offers on that day, arasseo?
