Althea Philippines Unboxing/Haul & Site Feature

Althea Philippines Unboxing/Haul

If you’re an avid reader, you probably know that I lah-ove online shopping. Of course, I still love going to the malls, do my own errands and stuff, but at the end of the day, nothing beats buying your favorite stuff online with just your PJs on while watching either RPDR or Friends reruns. It’s definitely a lot more relaxing, a lot less tedious and it’s like giving yourself a gift too.

I know that there are now a ton of online shops here in the Philippines that can cater to our “ka-kikayan”. But for me, even if you combine all of these websites, they don’t have enough Korean makeup/skincare products for us, Pinay beauties. Now, thanks to Althea we can now have quick access to different brands such as: Missha, Skinfood, Too Cool For School, Laneige, etc. and let’s not forget the popular/trendy brands like: Etude House, Tony Moly, The Face Shop, Nature Republic, etc.

Their site is currently on beta-testing mode but their official launch date will be on February 15, 2016. I was one of the lucky bloggers who got the chance to test and shop in their website. They offer a wide range of products, from skin-care to makeup, all authentic, directly from Korea.

Another thing that amazes me is that their products costs cheaper compared to what you can see here in our stores. They also offer free shipping (again, directly from Korea) for orders that are over Php 1,500 and they offer 30-Day unconditional refund. Which means that you can return your purchases within 30 days, even if it’s opened – no questions asked.

Anyway, let’s get to the haul/unboxing, shall we?

Shipping usually takes up to 5 business days if I’m not mistaken. I ordered mine last January 20, got the shipping confirmation on the 22nd, then I got my order last January 28. 4 business days.. not bad, eh? Considering that it came directly from Korea, straight to my doorstep, skipping the post office and all that jazz. I seriously hate picking up stuff in the post office. Just saying. This eliminates that PLUS, you don’t need to pay anything. The courier delivers the package to you and that’s it. No additional fees, taxes, etc. Happy mail, indeed!

For my first purchase, I bought the famous Iope Air Cushion XP (Cover). You guys know that I love cushion foundation so I can’t say no to this one. I’ve been hearing lots of great things about this foundation from Meejmuse, Michelle Phan, etc. I’ve already used it and I must say, it definitely lives up to the hype. I’ll do a review about it soon. Another plus about this product is that for Php 1,320 – it already comes with a refill! Sold!

Then, I got myself the Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar. This has been around for almost a year but I never got the chance to try it until December last year. My niece has one and she used it while we were on our Singapore vaca. Suffice it to say, my lipstick has already faded and hers were still in tact. That’s when I said to myself, I need that lippie. That’s why when I saw this on their website, this was definitely one of my top picks.

So that’s it for my Althea haul/unboxing. I hope you enjoyed this post. I’m definitely excited for their official opening because there are a lot of products in there that I’ve been eyeing for like weeks now.

How about you? Will you be shopping at Althea? What’s your favorite Koran makeup/skincare product. I’d love to know.

  • I also loved my Althea Box. I wanted to hoard everything during the test site. I wanted to make the most out of it so I managed to get 10 products from the 2k credita from Althea. Hihi. I ordered another batch and I hope it will arrive soon!

  • Haven’t tried ordering from their website yet but I surely will soon! That pink box looks oh so lovely =) The fact that the products are cheaper and that you need not to go to the mall to buy them yourselves makes it all the more. So excited to get my own soon! Looking forward to your reviews, Miss yette!
