I hope you’re following me on my social media & YouTube channel and you saw my posts/announcements about Althea Korea‘s 2nd birthday celebration. It’s amazing how much Althea has grown in just two years, from being a seemingly simple Korean online shop, to having an informative blog, its own app/mobile shop, and a YouTube channel where we can watch Althea’s resident pixies, mermaids, and unicorns. Althea Korea has also expanded to the rest of Southeast Asia–Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand–and is now getting global by serving the USA, and who knows what’s next?
To celebrate Althea Korea’s 2nd birthday, they had a lot of surprises for everyone:
- Limited Edition Althea Birthday Box design that looks like a cake!
- Birthday Kits for lucky early bird shoppers
- Birthday sample pack for lucky early bird shoppers
- Birthday Sales & Promotions for customers
- Althea Birthday Giveaway Festival for customers (free products every other day in July to add into cart)
- Althea Beauty Box July – Birthday Makeup Box (theme)
- Weekly Lucky Shopper Contest to win Althea credits
- Instagram #AltheaTurns2 Contest – snap & show your decorated birthday box to win amazing prizes from Althea! [ONGOING!!! Until August 15, 2017]
- 20days of Beauty Giveaway on @Altheakorea (Instagram)
I hope you were able to join them and if you did, make sure to check out their Facebook Page for the lists of winners.
Alright, before I show you my unboxing, let me just say that I’m impressed that Althea still handles their parcels very well. Delivery is still door-to-door but it may take a bit longer to arrive on holidays and peak season (such as their birthday month). In my case, it never exceeded the ETA so all is well. Heh.
These are what the first 5,000 lucky customers got when they ordered from Althea during its birthday month. There’s the limited edition box that looks like a birthday cake, DIY cake toppers, cake bunting set, and a birthday coupon. There were different color variations and they’re all pretty! This one’s their XL/largest box.
I love this year’s theme! A cake theme is very appropriate and I really love the designs and colors that they used. It’s super cute without looking tacky!
So those are what I actually ordered from Althea Korea. The two Nature Republic products are actually repurchases ‘cos I already ran out of them and I love them so much! The rest are skin care products that I have yet to try. In case you didn’t notice, I’m actually planning to dive on the 10-step Korean skin care routine, hence those products. I love that there’s a lot of options at Althea Korea; everything that I got are so affordable! Below is the list of product names and their prices:
- Milky Dress Wrinkle And Whitening Eye Cream – Php 210
- Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel – Php 180 //read my review
- Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist – Php 260
- Nella Honey Snail Multi Toning Essence – Php 329
- Nella Honey Snail Ultra Moisture Cream – Php 440
- Petitfée Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch – Php 460
- Nine Point Perfume Hand Cream (Marry Me) – Php 120
Now, those are all extras! Wow! Thank you so much Althea! <3 This is an example of the Birthday Sampler Pack and Birthday Giveaway Festival goodies (free full-sized product). On the left-most side is the Birthday Sampler Pack with lots of sample sachets, I wish I got a more varied pack though (still thankful for this). The rest are full-sized items that are also available at Althea Korea’s website. I love masks so I was really happy when I saw these in my box. Also, I haven’t tried any of these freebies yet so I’m excited to finally be able to try them out.
I had so much fun decorating my cake box and it made me crave for an actual cake so I got my favorite one and used the decors on it too! Heee. I might actually use them again to decorate my birthday cake this month, hahaha!
WIN A FREE TRIP TO KOREA! If you shopped at Althea on their birthday month and got your own birthday box, decorate it, be creative as you can, snap a photo and post it on Instagram to get a chance to win a free South Korea trip. Don’t forget to tag @altheakorea and use the hashtags #altheakorea and #altheaturns2! There are also secondary prizes and consolation prizes, make sure to check out their blog for more info and other mechanics.
Once again, thank you so much Althea Korea and #AltheaGlamSquad–Sydney, Anis, Mira, Bo, Eros, and especially, Tammy–for including me in the Althea Birthday Squad and for enabling the K-beauty addict in me. Haha! I wish Althea more happy years in the business of bringing affordable and the best Korean products to the rest of the world. Althea saranghae! <3
