I can’t believe it had been a year already since Althea opened its door to us, k-beauty junkies! I am so glad that Althea helps us explore more Korean products, makes it easier for us to buy, and delivers them to our doorsteps! I have bought a lot of products from them especially skin care products because they work well for me. I also love a lot of their makeup products because of their cute packaging, and great quality, of course! You can find some of my posts on this link: ALTHEA KOREA.

Before I saw the good stuff, Althea included some DIY hat and balloon in my box. The inner artist in me tried to create the party hat and I blew up the balloon by myself. It was so fun to do! Hihi.
Here’s a little overview of what I got. Let’s look at them one by one!
Banila Co. Prime Primer Classic Matte – ₱530.00
The Banila Co. Prime Primer Classic Matte is one of the best-selling of cosmetics items in Korea. It can cover pores, soothe fine lines, moisturize skin, control oil secretion and provide a fitted and longer hold for the foundation follows. The primer tightens the skin for a more lifted and radiant look. Particularly suitable for combination and oily skin types. I got this on sale but the current price is ₱620.00.
Amore Pacific Mise-en-scène Hair Perfect Repair Serum for dry hair – ₱450
Highly enriched oil will help your severe damaged hair. It will change to shiny, silky and healthy hair. Fresh and light type hair essence. This Hair Serum is the best hair serum for dry hair in worldwide. A serum like this forms a thin protective layer on the hair strands and protects your hair from damages done by overexposure to the sun and hair styling products. Your hair will profit from the benefits mentioned above and restore its moisture and silky touch. After washing the hair apply the desired amount on the wet hair and massage for damaged hair.
This was recommended by my sister, Dre. She swears by it because it keeps her hair smelling fresh all day! It helps bad odors like pollution and cigarette smoke to not stick to her hair. I have tried it twice, and it really does make the hair smell good, plus it does not make the hair oily!
Skinfood Vita Color Tint Lip Oil RE01 Cranberry Jam – ₱630
Tint lip oil containing essential oils with rich colors to provide a perfect healthy glow on your lips and strong tint to keep the colors throughout the day.
• Light oil that has rich colors
• Elasticity and smooth hydration care with natural botanical oil
• Natural radiance and vivid colors
• Completes perfectly smooth lips
• Contains Vita Complex
I am intrigued by this. Could it be a dupe to YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil? Review soon!
Skinfood Avocado Lip Balm – ₱280
A lip balm containing extract of avocado, the most nutritious fruit. Replenishes nutrients to dehydrated lips, removing dry skin. It also balances oil and moisture levels, keeping lips fresh and hydrated.
I am curious if this works great. It is also very affordable and it comes in a cute and handy tin can.
innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Scrub Foam – ₱450
A scrub foam that removes dirt from pores and exfoliates dead skin cells with volcanic clusters. This scrub foam effectively removes dirt and dead skin from pores in only 1-2 uses a week. Jeju volcanic cluster with strong sebum absorption. Natural Jeju volcanic clusters and red clay are some of the best ingredients for cleaning pores.
My sister, Dre, bought one from Korea, and whenever I stay at my parent’s home, I use this to scrub my face. It has fine, gentle beads that I feel like cleanses and exfoliates my face thoroughly. I wanted one for myself too so I bought it!
Witch’s Pouch Collagen Lip & Eye (makeup) Remover – ₱220
A makeup remover that erases any makeup without irritation. It helps fatigued skin to be moist and soft. It has rice bran oil and collagen and formulated without alcohol.
I usually wear waterproof makeup especially mascara, so this makeup remover is a must for me. I am currently loving cleansing oils, but this makeup remover is great for lazy days.
Guerisson 9 Complex Essence – ₱650
A rich skincare essence infused with galactomyces, ceramide, betaine and 9 herbal extracts that give full rejuvenation to the skin. This essence effectively delivers proper nutrients to enhance the skin’s texture and complexion. It also balances the skin’s proper moisture levels to prevent the skin from being too oily nor too dry. It keeps the skin soft and radiant by gently eliminating dead skin cells that cause dullness and roughness. This is specially formulated to suit people with sensitive skin.
I previously bought the Guerisson 9 Cream and I wanted to use this essence first before it to make it fully absorb into my skin. I am curious about the effect of horse oil on my skin. I wish it will make my skin smoother and brighter!
Those are all my recent purchases from Althea! I am so happy and excited to try everything and share with all of you, my thoughts about them. I hope that you’ll take advantage of the huge deals starting tomorrow and don’t forget to share with me what you got!
