I Tried Shopping at Althea Korea & Bet you’ll be Addicted Too!

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review
Hello Ladies from all over the world!

Hope you had a fantastic Christmas celebration. I had my blast too with my family, and friends and nothing is more exciting that to catch-up with them.

Unlike the previous Christmas celebrations, this year we’ve decided to be a little low-key: no dressing-up, and just wearing our favourite pajamas and fluffy bedroom slippers (as if we were having a grade school’s sleepover), wearing our Christmas headbands in various designs, and happily staying home while enjoying those festive foods that Mom prepared.

Plus some movie marathon (actually I suggested to watch Christmas horror movies, but Momma disagreed, hahaha) so she have these Christmas movies including the Disney’s, so it’s like we are kids again, hahaha

It was so fun, so be just home with family and celebrating the lazy Christmas Eve. We will make it up this New Year’s Eve, Yey!

It’s almost 2:00AM in the Christmas Day when I decided to open my laptop and write this post.

I know it’s Christmas Day and am not supposed to work, but I can’t help it. When a good idea and my writing energy calls me, I couldn’t help but grab that chances.

I have done shopping for Christmas gifts and shipped it to my friends and colleagues a week ago so I have nothing to worry about. But this time I suddenly remembered the items that I’ve both from ALTHEA last October which I honestly haven’t opened yet. So tonight I will!


FULL DISCLOSURE: I know most of my Asian readers have already tried shopping from ALTHEA KOREA both (1) because you are just a curious cat (like moi) and, (2) you just want to grab those Kbeauty cosmetics ASAP. OR (3) you shopped from ALTHEA KOREA because you are paid to do so, and part of your posts are tasked and sponsored by PR Agencies hired by ALTHEA KOREA, and some of you are quite hesitant to do so, unless it’s sponsored. And most of your contents are PR released, lol.

And I’m telling you ladies and gents from all over the world that this post you are reading is…


NOT EVER SPONSORED BY ALTHEA KOREA and I INVESTED MY PERSONAL MONEY TO MAKE THE PURCHASES.

For those who still have NO IDEA what I’m effin talking about, especially for my Non-Asian readers, I’m giving you some highlights.


UPDATE APRIL 2017: ALTHEA KOREA IS NOW SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!!


****

ALTHEA Korea, is a Seoul-based start-up company that aims to give access and delivery authentic Kbeauty products to their customers, in a most reliable and faster way.

If you are an avid follower of the Korean beauty trends, each year this Kbeauty trend is continuous to increase and I’m telling you that there is no sign of decline, adding here are the current South Korean’s pop-culture influence in music and fashion. Many Korean cosmetic companies are very diligent in discovering new products for the continuous increasing demand of its consumers.


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review
Frank Kang - co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of start-up company, ALTHEA KOREA


And do you know that currently, there are 8,000 Korean cosmetic brands in South Korea alone?
What the fuck! That’s humongous!

Yeah and it continuous to grow faster than your cat’s pregnancy (pun-intended), and it’s crazy AF.

And as one of the beauty-addicts in Asia, I am also dying to grab as much as possible all those brands from Korea – but my dilemma is the access and the fuckin expensive shipping cost and taxes the government and private shipping companies entails.

Gladly, ALTHEA KOREA team have discovered this HUGE GAP, and come-up with the birth of its company last July 2015. It’s initial target market are the increasing number of consumers from Southeast Asia (from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Philippines, which have plans to soon enter the Vietnam market).

Now am enjoying their service and I’m here to share you my first-hand experience shopping from their website, and their newly launched mobile app.

I might be a little late in using the ALTHEA services to purchase my Kbeauty needs, but what the heck – I finally try shopping from their site last October 2016.


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review
From Php1500.00 to Php999.00 that’s AMAZING!

For its first year of operation, I remembered that they’ve got an amazing warmth welcome from its consumers and it continuous to grow. I’ve also following their Facebook page and I’ve noticed how hands-on there are to communicate with their consumers inquiry, requests, including complaints (yes it does happens) and giving updates on their promotions, which I find it very positive!

When I’ve used ALTHEA KOREA website – I recalled previously that they offered free shipping for a minimum amount of Php1500.00 (approx.. US$30.61 as of this writing), and sometime in October, they update it and now you can avail FREE SHIPPING for your minimum purchase of Php999.00 (approx. US$20.38 as of this writing).

WHAT THE FUCK AGAIN – THIS IS VERY CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know right, and my fingers are itching to finally try to purchase from ALTHEA KOREA.

So when I finally tried to shop last October 2016 – I had availed the new FREE SHIPPING policy and here’s what I’ve purchased initially.


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


In my first ever purchased last 5th of October 2016, I’ve both the Guerisson 9 Complex Cream (70grams) priced at Php520.00, an Onsaemeein Carbonated Scoria Bubble Mask Pack (100ml) priced at Php360.00, and The Faceshop Rice & Ceramide Moisture Toner (150ml) priced at Php190.00.


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


So for a total shopping bag worth Php1,070.00 I’ve availed its FREE SHIPPING! Yey!

I am honestly worried about online shopping because of many hassle in the tax and shipping costs, and it’s very discouraging enough. But when I finally hit the checkout button, I was relieve I will only pay for that amount. I’ve used my Paypal money to purchased my items and hope for the best.

And if anything bad happens, then so be it and will be part of my review, hahaha

On the 11th of October, I’ve tried to track my packaged using the link that was sent to me via email:


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


During my research, I’ve found out that ALTHEA Korea have invested a lot of money and effort to streamline its shipping and logistic method and facilities, thus making it more easy and affordable for every consumers. Also the reason why they could delivery every purchases hassle-free and safe (well unless some fortuitous event happen).

In this tracker, it clearer shows what is happening to my package. I was relieve to realize how quick they processed my order.

Then I thought…hhhmmm ALTHEA KOREA is impressive! But still like they always say, never count your chickens not until the eggs are hatched – so I still prayed and hope for the best that my first purchased will arrive safely.

Then on the 13th of October, my receptionist ring me and said I have a package from ALTHEA.

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


WHAT?!! MY PACKAGE HAS ARRIVED!!!

Upon check-out, shipping are estimate to arrive to its destination within 10 to 15 days, and I’ve been shopping online from other e-commerce site and most of the time, this schedule was never meet. So I was really surprised that my orders from ALTHEA KOREA arrived after 8 days!

That is sooooo freaking awesome!!!

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


It was packaged in a sturdy cute pink box soo girly enough that everyone couldn’t resist. And inside, my items are all packed with bubble wraps and pink tissue papers well secured enough for transport.

All are tightly sealed – No spilled contents or flattened box. All are secured AF.

If you will ask me about my reviews of each items, yes I will very soon!

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review
Moi with my first ALTHEA KOREA first purchase!

It was sooooo effin cute even the box per se. The box is also sturdy that I am thinking of reusing it.

It’s Christmas Day! And I remember I have something I want to purchase from ALTHEA KOREA!

So just this month, ALTHEA KOREA have launched its mobile app, available for shopper from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines!

I’ve read some of Malaysian bloggers shared their ALTHEA KOREA party last week, and it was really fun. I was so glad that they’ve enjoyed it.

I’ve already downloaded the app 2 weeks ago, because I know that I will be away from my computer for days.

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


As you can see, ALTHEA KOREA mobile app is quite new but already gathered 5,000++ downloads! The app is FREE to download and is available for Apple Store and Google Play Store.


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


And since I’ve already have an account from ALTHEA KOREA, it’s easy for me to just connect my account in their mobile app. You can also opt to re-register for a new account via email, your Facebook and /or Google+ account.


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


To celebrate its launch, ALTHEA KOREA offers Php300.pp off from your minimum purchase of Php1000.00. I have to try this mobile app and see if this app will be me a good shopping experience.

So just this afternoon I browsed their app and started shopping! I am honestly excited, LOL


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


This time I’ve bought It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Serum in VE Effector, PO Effector and CO Effector all in Php390.00 each, a Skinny Blackhead Closing Serum 40ml priced at Php240.00 and an Eye Flower Eyelash Serum priced at Php40.00


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


Again all product reviews will be up soon once I’ve received these second orders!


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review




And since they have this offer, I have to avail it! Before hitting the checkout button, I entered the MOBFIRST300 coupon code to get Php300.00 discount!

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


As you could see, the Php300.00 is already reflected (that Php4.00 additional discount is from the Skinny Blackhead serum).

For my mode of payment, I chose paying via Paypal because it is more convenient for me.

Actually I don’t like to cash out money, so every time I’m having online transactions, I use my Paypal to cover me :D

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


Good thing about ALTHEA KOREA mobile app is that it confirms you first how much will be your actual bill. After hitting continue, I was directly to my Paypal account here the above shows how much will I pay the Althea Korea Sdn Bhd (which I realized I was billed by its Malaysian office).


ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


After confirming and finalizing my payment, my orders has been accepted! YEY!

Then I’ve got another email confirmation about my 2nd purchase!

Isn’t it soooo fucking cool?!! I’m expecting that my orders might got a little delay due to the holiday season, and I’ve already expect that I will receive it sometime in January 2017.

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


My purchases using my own funds so definitely #NOTSPONSORED

Once I’ve received my second orders, I am planning to share you my reviews of all my ALTHEA KOREA purchases, if these would I recommend or not.


Overall my ALTHEA KOREA shopping experience to both of their shopping platforms are quite exciting and very smooth sailing.

The mobile app is very user-friendly, I haven’t experienced downtime, or any lags.

All the details are very clear, especially the payment options. You may opt to use your credit or debit cards for payments.

It doesn’t have those very annoying ads that keeps on flashing onscreen unlike from other e-commerce apps – I literally hate those shits, I ended up uninstalling it.

With over 1500 brands and continuously adding, ALTHEA KOREA is definitely spoiling me AF, and no wonder that I am getting addicted to it!

ALTHEA Korea, ALTHEA Korea Pilippines, ALTHEA Korea app, Althea Philippines coupon code, althea korea review


Would I recommend you to shop at ALTHEA KOREA and use their mobile app?

Definitely YES! And why NOT?

Ohh by the way MOBFIRST300 coupon code is valid until December 31, 2016 only so download the app start shopping!

I couldn’t wait to finally have my second purchase and make a consolidated review! I am so happy that ALTHEA KOREA is here to provide and sustain my Kbeauty needs and addiction.

If you know other e-commerce site that will surpass ALTHEA KOREA please let me now, I would like to try their store and shop, and of course make a review!


UPDATE APRIL 2017: ALTHEA KOREA IS NOW SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!!

      I've read hundreds of review for this brand, even reviews here in the Philippines and all their tones are the same. Nothing interesting lah. Which are very obvious are sponsored posts... unlike what I do.

      I used ALTHEA KOREA, and I love the services, that's why I recommend it.

  56. Glad you liked shopping with Althea Korea. We don't like to participate in consumerism. If we do it is usually from a thrift shop!

    1. Thanks dear! But sometimes indulging in simple things like this gives you happiness. And at least once, you'll never miss a thing. Consumerism isn't bad at all - the challenging part to a human is control.
