Althea Korea Turns 2!

Ever since Althea Korea started shipping to the Philippines, it has been my go-to online shopping site for Korean beauty products. Althea features a wide range of Korean brands and products - I always find something interesting every time I visit their site. It's somehow been helping me expand my knowledge on K-beauty by making me try out more and more brands that I otherwise wouldn't have known about. Binge-watching The Beauty Breakdown videos on YT also helps haha.

Althea ships internationally directly from Korea straight to your doorstep. I usually receive my order in just 5-7 days, but I heard for some it's even quicker than that! The shipping fee is quite reasonable, I find. I always take advantage of their free shipping promo for orders above 999 Php, though.

To celebrate its 2nd birthday this July, Althea has LOTS of promos going on the whole month!

Now onto my haul!

Most of these are new products/brands I haven't tried yet. I also repurchased a couple of favorites. Oh, and since it's Althea's birthday month, there are lots of freebies included in my order! <3

Links are in the captions!

Let's start with the makeup items I got.
Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Pact
W-Lab Sebum Out Finish Pact

I repurchased the Innisfree mineral pact, which is a current fave of mine! The Sebum Out pact is a freebie, which I'm also excited to try! It seems to work the same way as the Innisfree one, and I'm always game in trying anything that claims to keep my face shine free longer!
Y.E.T. Clubpartra Waterproof Gel Pencil Liner (Real Black)
ABBAMART Shy Smile Blusher No Pearl (Soft Coral)

I am very picky when it comes to pencil eyeliners. I don't use pencil liners often (and when I do, I only use it on my lower lash line) because all the ones I've tried are not as smudgeproof as I'd like. Having oily monolids is hard, guys. This is why I stick to liquid eyeliners. I'm hoping this Clubpartra gel pencil liner will be up to the job. I also picked up a blusher because I'm almost out of my current one, which I also got from Althea last year.

These are all the makeup I got. Let me show you the rest of my haul!
Skin Food Rice Wash Off Mask
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

I repurchased the Nature Republic aloe gel, which I also got from Althea before. This comes in really handy when my allergy attacks. It indeed helps soothe my skin and keep the itch at bay. I never imagined I would go through this whole tub so quickly, but I did. I also got a new type of mask from Skin Food, which I'm sooo excited to try! <3

The next are all masks! Lots and lots of masks.
PACKage X Hapooooom Monthly New Feel Socks
W-Lab Sebum Out Black Mask
Pure Smile Masquerade Art Mask
APIEU Silver Silk Blanket Mask
B&SOAP Premium Metal Aqua Mask
W-Lab BLACK KILL 3-Step Nose Pack

Remember my previous (and quite recent) Althea face mask haul? Well, I decided to add a few more to my collection of "hipster" face masks lol. One is actually for the feet, which I badly need! So excited to try everything, especially the black mask and the metal mask!

Here are more freebies included in my order.

More masks! Those Beuins masks look interesting. And there's a sampler for every variant of the mask available at the site. I'm also so really curious as to what those point pads are for haha.

So that's it for my recent K-beauty haul! If you love Korean products, be sure to check out! Also, you might want to download the app - I have it, and I get notified every time there's a promo going on :)

Do share your Althea hauls on social media, and don't forget to use the hashtags #AltheaTurns2 and #AltheaKorea :)

Happy 2nd birthday, Althea Korea! <3<3<3
