Last June I happily announced that I was part of Althea’s beauty ambassador community called Althea Angels. Then in July, I shared with you Althea’s Welcome Gift. On the same post, I mentioned that they also gave us 30 USD shopping credits! Yay!
I’ve actually uploaded a haul video on my YouTube channel, which you’ll see on the bottom of this post.
I just want to share with you the stuff that I purchased with my points and just a little extra amount for a product that I was dying to have. Rest assured, I’ll be giving you a more detailed review on my next posts.
First item was Bubi Bubi Lip by Unpa. I first saw it from Althea Mermaid Sydney and I thought it was super fun to use. It’s a lip scrub that bubbles up, so I don’t think I will ever be lazy to give my lips a special treatment.
Price: P470 / 12ml
Scrub a dub-dub, join the smooth lip club! Unpa’s best selling item to date, this is the product that has really put them on beauty lovers’ maps. Made with natural, fruit-based ingredients, this gentle bubbly lip scrub uses a chemical peel that works to remove residue and gently whisk away flaky dead skin on the lips for a soft, kissable pout. It also creates a smooth clean canvas for lipstick to stick to, giving you a perfect application every time.
Next item is Rire Pore Tightening Fresh Toner. I picked this out of curiosity. I’d been seeing this product on Althea and it had almost always been Out of Stock. It’s been getting a lot of good feedbacks, so I thought, ‘why not give it a try?’ I think it’s such a good deal since the price is within my budget and the bottle is unexpectedly huge.
Price: P360 / 300ml
Oily, pore-blematic skin has finally met its match with Rire’s Pore Tightening Fresh Toner! This refreshing toner controls excess sebum and cleanses deep into the pores, effectively shrinking them and removing blackheads for an even complexion. Don’t worry about drying out your skin though: it’s got hydrating ingredients to ensure your skin still feels soft and supple to the touch. Use together with Rire Peeling Cotton Pad for the best results!
Because I now enjoy hoarding sheet masks when I go shopping at Althea, I stock up on my favorite ones – Boom Deah Dah Everyday Masks! Also, I wanted to try My Real Skin Facial Masks since I found that they were also very affordable and their variants were too tempting to ignore.
Price: P20 (Boom Deah Deah Everyday Mask)
Sheet masking is a definite must have for every skin type, and it’s even better when they come in a whole array of versions highlighting the best type for your skin need. Boom De Ah Dah’s Everyday Mask Sheets come in 8 different versions to suit just about any complexion type, making them a definite winner in terms of diversity in our books. Pick and choose to target specific needs, or use them all for a well-rounded complexion.
Price: P27 (My Real Skin Facial Mask)
Healthy and daily mask pack with EWG green level that fits your everyday skin condition.
Being someone who wasn’t so big on skin care, I’m quite pleased that most of the stuff that I got was dedicated to it. I only threw a couple of makeup products in my cart, and one of those was an eyeshadow from Color Deep. It’s their Gorgeous Eyes 9-Color Eyeshadow Palette. I really like the tin packaging and its color story. It consists of mattes and satins that can be used everyday or on special occasions. I haven’t used it so I hope you subscribe so you get notified if I’ve posted my review here and on my channel. 😉
Price: P380 / 10.2g
A mix of nine neutral shades for daily makeup. Lovely colors + delicate pearl + vivid color expression. Perfect color combination for lovely makeup pink and brown. Create an array of looks with this easy-to-use, everyday mix of colors.
The other two makeup products that I got, which can also pass as skin care since they consist of ingredients that care for the skin, are the two variants/shades of Althea’s first exclusive product – Althea Petal Velvet Powder. I got Warm Beige and their limited edition Pink Lavender. I personally refer to their powder as a “real-life filter” since it makes my skin smoother and minimizes the appearance of my pores.
Price: P210 (Warm Beige)
Althea’s very own product range is here, and we’re starting off strong with the Petal Velvet Powder! This debuting beauty is a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves behind a silky finish to the touch. Infused with oil from Althea seeds, this powder works to keep sebum production at bay without drying out the skin for a radiant, fresh look, all while giving out a gentle scent. Keep your makeup looking great all day or dust some on to stay shine-free! Now available in #0 Translucent and #23 Warm Beige colors.
Price: P230 (Pink Lavender)
Like our Petal Velvet Powder? Then you’re going to love our 3rd Anniversary Limited Edition #Pink Lavender version even more! Brighten and smoothen your skin with this special formula containing pink and purple pigments to liven up dull complexions. Its super fine particles help keep sebum at bay without drying out the skin for fresh, petal-like skin while its calming scent soothes the senses. Keep your makeup looking great all day or dust some on to stay shine-free!
Finally, because I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it on Althea’s Instagram, I decided to get myself one. Who wouldn’t fall in love with Beauty of Joseon Revitalize Sleeping Mask? The aesthetics! Look how beautifully it is packaged! It really takes us back to the ancient Korea when they only used huge jars with cloth covers. It’s not only satisfying outside, but also inside. Watch out for a more detailed review!
Point: Secret of Joseon Women in the top 1%
- Black beans, ginseng, honey and orchid ingredients that Joseon women used provide smooth and tight skin texture during sleep by deeply being absorbed into the skin without stickiness.
Purpose: Black beans and ginseng extract give nutrition to dull skin and make it clear and elastic.
So far I’m really enjoying most of the products I got. Do you find anything interesting? If you have any questions about the product/s, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments section below!
