Last December, I got an email invite from Althea Korea to be the first few shoppers to shop on Althea Philippines as one of their beta-testers. Came January, they gave me 2000 worth of shopping credits to spend on their website. I placed my order last January 22, and after 7 business days, I got my order! It was delivered at home and I did not pay any customs taxes and duties at all. Please note that an authorization letter is needed in case you will not personally accept the items. They are strict with this rule!
What is Althea Philippines?
Let me now show you what I got after the jump!
The package came in a big pink plastic and when opened, the box is inside a bubble wrap. The items inside were also wrapped inside bubble wraps and I am very happy that all of them were in great condition.
I spent all of my 2000 credits and more because I can’t get enough! I had a hard time choosing what to buy because there are a lot of Korean beauty products that are available! I noticed that I got items from different brands. Let’s look at them one by one.
