Yesterday, I shared a review of my Althea Korea shopping experience. Today, it’s going to be my haul.
The package arrived wrapped in a pink plastic shipping wrapper. Inside, everything was bubble wrapped. The Althea box itself, looking like a cute pink cake box, had a layer of bubble wrap over it. The contents were bubble wrapped individually or in groups (for the smallest items). The only exceptions were a tube of face cream that already came in its own bulky box and an additional sheet mask they included.
For this round, it was mostly skincare items I picked out. Althea has a bigger collection of skincare products that focus primarily on cleansers, masks, and moisturizers. I focused on selecting brands that aren’t readily available in the Philippines, so I ended up with stuff from The Saem, Innisfree, Dr. Jart, and Vita 3000. The Etude House Drawing Eye Brow I decided to get, because it was a new addition to the site so it had a discount promotion. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they threw in a Missha sheet mask on top of everything.
Here’s the complete list:
- The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Cleansing Water
- The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisture Toner
- Innisfree Kale Anti-oxidant Lotion
- It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effector
- Vita 3000 Vitamin AC Vita-capsule Cream
- Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream
- The SAEM Saemmul Real Tint
- Etude House Drawing Eye Brow #3
- (Bonus) Missha 3D Bamboo Sheet Mask
It’s basically a whole new skincare routine…
