Althea Philippines Review and Unboxing

3:05:00 PM

If you have been following me on Instagram, you may have already seen me post some photos about Althea Korea. I was lucky enough to have been chosen as one of their Beta Testers for the launch of the Althea Philippines website. Althea is Korea's premier online beauty destination providing the lowest prices to consumers and delivers authentic K-beauty products to the world.

Althea Philippines officially launched last February 15, 2016. I did share this on my Instagram as well since they offered a lot of promos, discounts and freebies! And oh, they offer Free Shipping for a minimum order of Php 999 pesos for the whole month of February.

Shipping and Payment Details
Free Shipping for a minimum purchase of Php 1,500 pesos
Estimated time of arrival is 5 to 8 days
Items delivered straight to preferred address
Payment method used is via Paypal

My orders arrived in 10 days, which isn't bad all considering that these are from Korea. They provided me with a tracking number as well, which was very detailed. When my orders arrived, I was ecstatic since they delivered it straight to my doorstep. That means no going to the post office, no extra fees or charges and no additional tax! Woohoo!

Since these are all from Korea, you can be sure that the items are definitely Authentic. Also it is very true that they offer the Best Price. Compared to Korean Brands that are already available locally here in PH, there is definitely a huge difference in terms of price. In addition to that, they included freebies in my purchase. In this case, I got the Red Ginseng Sheet Mask as a freebie.

These are the items I got from my first order.

innisfree Long Wear Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++

Missha Red Ginseng Sheet Mask
Holika Holika Baby Pet Magic Mask Sheet in Whitening Seal

Etude House Play 101 Pencil in No. 1
Missha The Style 4D Mascara

Peripera Peri's Tint Water in Cherry Juice
Tony Moly Panda's Dream Brigtening Eye Base

My verdict: The Althea Philippines online store gets a huge thumbs up from me! The website is pleasing to the eye and very easy to navigate. Apart from the really affordable prices and free shipping, they constantly offer discounts and freebies. It is hassle free and they use a secure payment method via Paypal.

I most certainly enjoyed my Althea Philippines experience. So I would I highly recommend this site for your Korean Beauty fix. In fact, I just made a second order and it is on its way! Yeah!

  1. Hi Hollie. I've just ordered from Althea PH today. I'm just wondering, what courier do they use? My orders from South Korea are generally delivered straight to my doorstep by the designated postman in our area, but I pay a basic fee of 100PHP per box. Thanks! :)

    1. Nagbayad po kayo sis sa postman?

    2. @Jm04, no I didn't pay any additional fees to the post man.

  2. @Kissel, the parcel says CJ Express.

  3. Holika Holika pet mask looks very cute and tempting to try. Lucky you. You have got lovely goodies.
