On an early morning, my alarm clock went off and i was struggling to open my eyes. I grabbed my spectacles, switched off the alarm and on the lights…
This sight greeted me (not again!!!) – My alpaca is trying to ‘escape’ with my Althea Limited Edition Christmas Box. Inside contains some Korean skincare products that i have ordered recently!!!
Old habits die-hard and after being caught in the act, she has to surrender what she took. With a sorry look (NOT AGAIN), she told me that she cannot resist the pretty Christmas box!!
Then, my alarm clock went off again and this time i woke up for real. It was yet another bizarre dream! I must be feeling very insecured again and worried that people will take away my things without permission. hahahaha!
Anyway, i have just done some Christmas shopping for myself on Althea. You should know how much i love Korean skincare products and cosmetics after visiting Korea in May. Despite the increasing popularity of K-beauty items in the world, there was not a one-stop shopping destination where every and anyone in the world could enjoy authentic K-beauty products at a reasonable price, just as Korean consumers do in Korea. Hence, Althea was founded to bridge authentic K-beauty to SEAsians.
Althea innovates the cross border distribution channel to connect K-beauty suppliers directly
with SEA consumers. So now, it just feels that you are shopping at Korea with Althea! Althea offers comprehensive K-beauty selections at the lowest price to consumers and strives to become the gateway to the world, most favored by K-beauty suppliers.
What i love about Althea:
Authentic Products from Korea: If product is confirmed non-authentic, Althea will honor return anytime and refund 200% of purchase value. Now you need not worry that you will put your skin and health to risk by using ‘fake’ products.
Free Shipping: Products are directly hand-picked and packed from Althea warehouse in Korea. Enjoy free delivery to Singapore for all orders above S$50 in a single order. My order came within 1 week after placing my order. Pretty fast IMO!
Best Price Guarantee: Althea takes great care to ensure prices stay competitive. If you happen to find a better price on a particular item, Althea will match it (Subjected to these terms and conditions)! After looking through the prices of the items on the website, i can say that it is very close to Korea’s pricing.. Moreover, there are always different on-going promotions so there’s always an excuse to shop. 🙂
30 Days Unconditional Returns: Return shipping fee will be covered by Althea, need i say more?
I did my early X’mas shopping on Althea due to the Christmas promotions!! Earlier i have mentioned that pricing on Althea is very competitive and now you will get to enjoy these special elements when you do your Christmas shopping on Althea!

My products came individually wrapped in a thick layer of bubble wrap and delivered timely via courier. My items were delivered within a week upon payment and i’m really impressed with the short transit time.. 🙂
Before purchasing a full size skincare product, will you obtain a sample first to try? I’m sure most of you will request for samples to try to ensure it is right for you before making a purchase. Even when in Korea, the SAs will always include some samples along with your purchase. Althea included some free samples along with my orders so it just feels like shopping in Korea. Thank you!
First product which i added to my cart is the LABSTORY Pure Aqua Ice Toner and as per description, it is great for summer and poplar among Kpop stars!! As you know i have sensitive skin which can be warm to the touch, hence this toner will comes in handy as a form of cold therapy to calm down skin sensitivity (thus reducing skin irritation due to sensitive skin!). This Pure Aqua Pore Tightening Ice Toner made of Glacial Milk, Lentil Seed, Witch Hazel Water, Alfalfa, Strawberry and Spinach Leaf which lowers skin temperature while tighten pores at the same time. Will let it out soon and update on how it fare!
Next, i have also ordered the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch to try. As usual, i was attracted to the adorable packaging. The Panda’s Dream Eye Patch is formulated with amino acids rich which help brighten the skin around the eyes, diminish the look of dark circles and fine lines, and improve moisturization. The adorable eye patches are designed to resemble panda eyes once applied. It does not contain Parabens, talc, benzophenone, silicone and tar color.
Hahahaha! These eye patches not only looks cute but it feels great upon application~ A cool and refreshing sensation will set in after application which makes my tired eyes feels really good. Texture might on the thicker side but it goes away after you pat the essence in after you remove the mask. It does have a slight brightening effect and i love how it leaves my delicate eye area smooth after usage!
Next up, i needed a new puff for my foundation so i have decided on the TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Marshmallow Puff after reading the reviews on Althea. This Marshmallow Puff will help to achieve flawless finish with its pillowy soft sponge texture. It easily absorbs product and ideal to use it with BB cream and foundations. This reusable applicator’s handy, ergonomic shape lends to its versatility and precision, you can even use it to apply eye shadow and under-eye concealer!
Last but not lease, the final product that i purchased is an eyecream for my eyes as i need to do something to my ‘worsening’ panda eyes. Need something light and the Wonder Ruci Light Light Eye Balm caught my attention! Wonder Ruci Light Light Eye Balm is an innovative, lightweight eye balm that moisturizes, brightens, and strengthens the skin around the eyes while diminishing the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines. The ultra lightweight formula goes smooth and easy. The balm texture prevents cracking and drying under and around eye for perfect makeup application. It can be worn alone or under makeup. I gave it a try and the texture is really light light! haha.. The balm texture glides on my eye area smoothly and it leave behind a silky finish (No greasiness). It also helps to brighten my under-eye instantly.
Christmas is coming in 2 weeks and i’m already done with my Christmas Shopping. What about you? 🙂 If you have not, fret not as it is still in time to order some gifts for your love ones (or yourself) via Althea~ 🙂
