Unboxing: Althea Favorites Pink Vibes Only

in , by Rejoyce Canaynay, October 03, 2017

Aside from me being obsessed with K-Drama, I recently got hooked on k-beauty products as well. I blame Edward Avila and Joan Kim's youtube channel for that. And since I'm such an easily influence little viewer of them I immediately got obsess with the Korean products they use. Thankfully, there is a website called Althea Korea that sells k-beauty items at a lower price and good thing about it, their products are shipped directly from Korea making it legit authentic.

With this site, I won't need to worry about getting different brands all over the internet because this website offers lots of Korean brands and like what I said earlier, everything is straight from where it belongs - Korea.

Well, to be honest, I was more on western makeup over Asian that I don't even entertain buying Asian brands just until recently when I came across the Youtubers I mentioned above. Watching their reviews encourages me to try Asian brands and I also fell in love with the Korean look when I was in their country. So with that, I finally gave in and found myself browsing for some k-beauty products in Althea.

The very first thing I purchased from Althea is the Althea Favorites: Pink Vibes Only box. I decided to purchase a box over picking items I would be interested in is because I can get a lot of products at a very good price. This box only costs me P1200 that originally price at P2600. From me trying items I haven't heard before and spending a little amount for all of it is definitely a great steal, right?!

Here are the items found in my Althea Favorites:

 No. 1 Secret Key Tattoo Cover Cushion Pink Edition #23

This Tattoo Cushion has a high coverage that makes the skin smooth and clean as it efficiently covers skin troubles such as freckles, redness and acne scars with just a flush of a small amount of product. It also has a high moisture and nutrition that is perfect to maintain the moist in the skin the whole day without getting dry.

No. 4 Holika Holika Piece Matching Shadow in GPK02 Cotton Candy

When I was in Korea, I noticed that most Koreans love putting glittery eyeshadows, having shimmer eyelids are like an on-the-go look for them and I actually find it really cute. So while I was in Myeongdong, I bought myself some single eyeshadow with shimmer so I could mimic that Korean vibe on my makeup look. I was glad that the Althea box I purchase also has glittery eyeshadow that I can add to my growing k-beauty collection. 

No. 5 Hello Skin Jumiso Rich Nourishment Mask

The Jumiso Mask have been carefully selected by Seoul Business Agency for the excellent value. It is made from Korean herbal ingredients and black ginseng extract and has Argan Oil that nourishes and protects your skin. It also contains two types of ceramide similar to the skin lipids, which helps strengthen skin elasticity. And it has dual fermentable ingredients using the two fermentation methods that make a healthy looking skin.

How To Use:
  1. Use the mesh to open the sheet
  2. After applying the sheet on the face, remove the mesh only.
Price: From 140, it is only 110 pesos now.

This Althea Favorites: Pink Vibes Only is currently sold out but if you wish to get your hands on these products you can purchase it separately on their website. I have yet to open all this but will surely make a review once I tried all of them.

And aside from the box I also added in my purchase are:

Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit

This is a 3-step kit perfect for pore control. The first step opens your pores which allow for removing blackheads easily. The second steps remove blackheads. The third step to minimize pores.

After 10-15 minutes, slowly remove it from the edge. After step 1 and 2, place step-3 on the nose. Remove it after 10-15 minutes and gently tap on it for better absorption.

The SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer in no. 2

Purchasing in Althea Korea is such a good steal if I were to ask because aside from getting the products at a lot cheaper price compared to the other online shops, the shop also caters a lot of Korean brands that it will make it easier for us to get different brands in one shopping. And another good thing about it, they offer free shipping above P999 and the much convenient Cash-On-Delivery just to make it the perfect go-to shop for your k-beauty obsession!
