Althea Korea is a well-known K-Beauty shopping site that ships internationally from Korea to Malaysia, Singapore and finally here in the Philippines. Housed with popular K-Beauty brands such as Banila Co., Innisfree, Laneige, Tony Moly, Etude House, it also carries great products from Korea that we have never heard, see or use before. Guaranteed that all products are 100% authentic and sold at the best price.
Christmas last year, I was invited to be one of Althea Korea’s beta tester and was given 2000 credits equivalent to Php2000. That was awesome, right? Even more awesome when the site was up last month. It even took me 3 days to finally decide which one to add to cart. Yes, because there are so many great products I would love to use. The transaction was smooth and navigating from one product to another was even quicker.
Althea is having a grand opening promotion such as Buy 1 Take 1, huge discounts, as well free shipping on orders Php999 above and much more for the whole launching month. Free store credits of Php300 will also be given for every new sign up. Crazy enough, right? Not only that, shipping only takes 6 to 8 days all the way from Korea to your doorsteps. You will also be able to track your package online, but rest assured that Althea is providing a safe delivery.
Here’s what I got:
1. Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lip Master – Php440
2. It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effect – Php390
3. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Cream – Php510
4. Holika Holika 1 Sec Finish Browcara – Php448
5. Etude House Bling Bling Eyestick – Php190
I haven’t tried these products that I got but I grabbed the opportunity to be able to try them. These came packaged in a beauty box known as ‘pink box’.
If you’re a K-beauty lover too, then Althea is perfect for you.
I have neither tried any of those products too but I'd sure love to give 'em I try. So I might just sign up for Althea.
Althea!! My friends and I are planning to buy some skincare products here soon!! Thank you for sharing xx
Wow! Must try! I miss make-up days.
You're so lucky on being a beta tester 🙂 I'm a big fan of K-beauty products.
Not the first and not the last to be available to Philippine consumers. I must say, some of my female friends would want to take a look at this.
Any clue when are they launching in india? I am so crazy for cosmetics. How's the bling bling eye stick ?
i Made some shopping already! i can't wait! 🙂
I have a friend who is so into Korean looks and products. I bet she'll be super interested with this one, Thanks for sharing. 🙂
PH is an ideal market because of our spending (in contrast to saving) culture and I guess affinity to something K. This is good news though to ladies because of the options made available by Althea
I already checked out several items yesterday! I can't wait!!
Surely Korean beauty product lovers will be happy with this good news!
The only brand that im familiar with is Etude. I dont even know how to pronounce it, but yeah.. The wife has it. lol keep ya bling bling on! 🙂 xo
Korean products are always a go for me!! It's like food to the skin <3 Aaaahhh!! Which brand has the best lipstick quality, btw?
I know that the BB creams from Korea are quite in-demand.. My sister are really into this and she often shop for these kind of products online.. I might suggest AlThea to her.. I'm pretty sure she will give this a try
I tried out althea ph as well! I love how you don't have to go to customs to get said pink box and that when they arrived it was all bubble wrapped, even the box itself 🙂
Another reason for us women to add up our cosmetics collection.lol
am not much of a make-up gal but i bet a lot of women out there are giddy like 5 year olds because of this new shop!
This is so good! I would love to try some of these products… heard so many good things 🙂
Already subscribed! I'm drooling over these Korean beauty products. 🙂
am not much into make-up but it should be awesome to order them straight from Korea. am sure a lot of Korea brand lovers will find this site most interesting!
I've recently heard about this company too! A good friend is a huge fan of Korean beauty products and says great stuff about the items Althea seems to carry.
Not really a makeup fan but these products are really cute. Please make a review once you have tried using them 🙂 🙂
I've never heard of that shop. I see that they offer some interesting brands.
i think my friends will love this.. asa dapit ila branch mag open? 😀
That's great! Finally you all get to have fun with Althea too! =)
I can't wait to be back home in the PH so I can order from them too! So glad we're getting services like this already 🙂
heard loads about the company when it first launched in Malaysia, great for quick fixes of korean cosmetics but of course nothing beats a trip to korea itself 😉

My sister loves Korean stuff. Im definitely recommending this to her. Thanks for sharing up Cheryl
