First Shopping Experience at Althea Korea

As far as I can remember the first Koreanovela I saw was entitled Dae Jang Guem also known as Jewel in the Palace shown in our local channel here in the Philippines. I spent long hours just watching this favorite drama show. There were days, I would look for it on YouTube and watched it in advance. Apart from the stories, I was also inspired by Korean's glowing and blemish free skin

One of my greatest concerns is where to get authentic KBeauty cosmetics in case I wanted to continuously use a certain brand such as Laneige until I learned about ALTHEA Korea, an online beauty shop that offers a wide range of authentic and reasonable price Korean skin care products. So I log on to Althea Korea to personally experience shopping in Korea. The first thing that came to my mind was Korean brand, Laneige. What's more exciting is the news that Filipinas can now shop through

I started browsing Althea website sometime last week. It took me a while to finish since there are lots of products to choose from. I limited my spending but placed the rest on the wishlist. As mentioned earlier, I wanted to try Laneige and so it is.

Reasons Why you should Shop at Althea Korea

  • FREE SHIPPING for shopping above Php 1,500 Php 999. The items are packed from Korea and well-sealed to be delivered in the Philippines. 
  • 1-2 weeks shipping period. The pink parcel arrived at home in very good condition. I appreciate how each product was kept in a bubble wrap so it won't break.
  • 100 % AUTHENTIC. In my case, I did not have any complaints with the items. I bought Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner and the Laneige Light Balancing Emulsion. While Nature Republic's Soothing Gel was also sealed and enveloped in a bubble wrap. Althea said they honor returns if in case the customer suspects a counterfeit product.

  1. Hi Maam! Gusto ko lang po itanong if sponsored po ba ito or not? And I'd like to ask if the NR Aloe Vera gel is authentic? :< Kasi yung nabili ko rin po from Althea , parang medyo sticky compared doon sa nabirli ko sa mismong NR stores :(( And nagsearch po ako online kung paano ma identify kung fake or not. Pwede po bang magpost rin kayo ng review about it? Kung fake or authentic stuff? :((
    Thank you po !!
