Few weeks ago, my office guard happily phoned me that someone sent me a package.

He told me it was a PINK box!

OMG My heart was palpitating with joy! I always got excited when this package arrived.


PS. turns-out its not PINK but GOLD!

And whenever my package from ALTHEA KOREA arrives, I never that whatever the contents inside makes me to happy. But still it always surprises me.

I was in a total bliss that I even managed to film a short unboxing here:


Althea's Anti Pollution Kit is a Must to Your Beauty Table


It was an awesome Monday, and yes I got a humongous surprise from @altheakorea . They gave me this beautiful CNY themed box, with all the latest #kbeauty skincare that will help me to protect my skin from pollution of this big city. They all comes in full sizes and its crazy! Am excited to try and test these skincare products and share to you my verdicts. But for now let me share you this quick unboxing! Pardon me for my weird voice and accent, and also for mispronouncing those Korean brands because, ehem is my first time to encounter these products, but am pretty sure I will enjoy them all. 😂 Erratum: The Wonder Pore Freshner Toner is NOT from Missha, its from Etude House (my bad) 😂 More detailed stories soon to be available at ForUrbanWomen.com #altheakoreaph #altheakorea #althea #skincare #heathyskincare #koreanskincare #koreancosmetics #koreanbeauty #beauty #bblogger #beautyblogger #beautybloggerph #unboxing #influencer #healthy #review #skincareaddict #Asian #antipollution
A video posted by BLAIR VILLANUEVA (@blairvillanueva) on



And even though I was a bit nervous and alone filming myself, I still had that little doubts if I could make it. I mean, I’ve never shared an unboxing video like this before. And at the back of my head, I was a little afraid that some experts there will judge me and my video. But….

I don’t care anymore! This is my website, my property, my online empire…. And I shouldn’t be affected on whatever so-called experts says, unless their expertise are invited so.

But….

Yes… I know, I know am also like a kid in a candy-store-and-shopped-candies-until-I-dropped!

And why wouldn’t I? My favourite Korean online e-commerce store surprisingly sent me this box with super generous contents. And I got so thrilled to use them all for past weeks, and am here to share you one-by-one its contents, because am sure these products are also unfamiliar to you.


Let me tell you first how much I like their new designed box for Chinese New Year. The gold box designed with a delicate Chinese prints in red and metallic gold makes this a box exudes opulence.

Gold and red are two super lucky colors in Chinese and Asian cultures and this themed-box is a perfection. It is truly shamed if you ladies throw this kind of box after consuming its contents.

I will treasure it just like my other ALTHEA KOREA boxes. (Or perhaps I could recycle it soon!).

What I’ve got is part of their monthly themed-box called Anti-Pollution box.

It contains of Eight (8) auspicious surprises - 7 Korean beauty products and a discount coupon from ALTHEA KOREA, all carefully curated by ALTHEA KOREA team to suit very customers’ skin-type to fight against the monstrosity of pollution that damages our skin.

Pollution is indeed evil. Not only it ruins our inner health, but also destroys our skin leading us to ugliness and faster ageing.

Am already in my 30s and it’s not in my life agenda to aged so fast and wrinkly. I would like to age slow, smoothly and still looked gorgeous when I reach my prime age.


Althea's Anti Pollution Kit is a Must to Your Beauty Table


First, contains an auspicious discount coupon worth Php188.00 limited to (1) customer. By using the code: 2017LNY188 you’ll get a discount of Php188 off your purchases, no minimum purchase required.

I haven’t used this coupon yet, so maybe you can try this coupon. Hurry because this coupon will expire until February 28, 2017.

After a very tiring long day, I am always craving to go home and start washing off those make-up and dirt off my face. Yes, I love make-up just like you do but my skin needs to breath and be free with those colors and dirt.




Camia Rooisbos Cleansing water review


Cleansing my face with Camia Rooibos Cleansing Water (300ml) helps me to easily washed-off those make-up and dirt all over my face and neck. It contains a rooisbos tea extract that came from South Africa, and contains sparkling water the removes dirt and nourishes my skin at the same time. Never leaves my skin dry and rough unlike the other cleansers I’ve used.


Camia Rooisbos Cleansing water review


Some of you might be allergic to using cleansing oils to remove your heavy make-up so this CamiaRooisbos Cleansing water might be suitable to your skin. This is also god when you always travel – just refill your small travel container with this cleansing water and make sure to close it tightly so it won’t spill and won’t cause you travel inconveniences.

PS  Because of its huge container (am not sure if this is available in a small size) this would honestly be mistaken as a mineral drinking water, so please be extra careful not to just lay it around your house (unless you are living alone).

Calmia Rooibos cleansing water, doesn’t have mixed oil or any residue at the bottom of the bottle so definitely someone might mistake this as drinking water. Or even don’t leave your cleansing water together with your bottled drinking water inside your fridge



Camia Rooisbos Cleansing water review


My makeup is all gone now after clearing it with Calmia Rooibos and it was amazing. Although it didn’t thoroughly removes my mascara as I’ve used an awesome brand that doesn’t removes that easily.

So I need to use another oil-based cleanser to help me wiped it off completely.

After initially removing my make-up, I’ve tied my hair up and changed my clothes for a more comfortable cleansing session.


Jamong Cleansing Balm by Hope Girl review


Am a huge fan of Korean double cleansing technique, so I got excited to try this yummylicious-looking Jamong Cleansing Balm by Hope Girl. This is perfect timing, as I’ve already emptied my previous cleansing oil, and using a new brand is like an adventure for me.

It has a light pinkish-color and also includes a scraper for the cleansing balm. It gently cleanses my face and completely removes the mascara that wasn’t removes by Calmia Rooisbos cleansing water.


Jamong Cleansing Balm by Hope Girl review


It smells a mixed of grapefruit and a hint of citrus, and it easily blends to your skin and removes those dirt. I like this cleansing balm because it won’t spill and of course the obvious reason – its super attractive packaging!

Just let your Mom know that this is your cleansing balm because she might mistaken this as a candle, or a lipbalm, LOL.

I leaved it to my face for 2-3-minutes them washed it off with warm water.


Deep Clear Cleansing Foam from Missha review


Then for my second part of double-cleansing, I used Deep Clear Cleansing Foam from Missha.


Another yummylicious packaging (Oh my why Korean cosmetics always do this!) this cleansing foam helps me to get off those excess dirt and tighten my pores.


Deep Clear Cleansing Foam from Missha review


I also like this cleansing foam as it gently tighten and stretches my face. It is also unscented and comes in a huge package which I estimated can be used up to 3 to 4 months, which is a good deal for me.

It’s now my favourite double cleansing angel along with Hope Girl Jamong Cleansing Balm.

After washing of my face – time for some pampering galore!


Bitter Green Clay Soothing Mask from Skinfood review

Glad that ALTHEA KOREA have this Bitter Green Clay Soothing Mask from Skinfood which gives me that uber relaxing feeling after cleansing. This face mask comes in a light green paste, which is also have a little rough texture that serves like a scrub. So when Am applying it on my face, I have to massage it gently and let it stay for 15minutes or until I felt my face a bit tighter.

This clay soothing mask contains the 5 green veggies that I love – wheat sprouts, kale, celery, broccoli, and cabbage – all veggies that are super good not only in our health and digestion, and also good for our skin! I just couldn’t understand why some people doesn’t like green veggies (and those people doesn’t understand nutrition at all!).

It also have a mild minty scent which I bet you’ll going to love! It also helps me to tighten my pores and gave me that refreshing look after.

AHHH I don’t mind using this every day! With this container I think I could use them up to 2 to 3 months!

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Toner review

Then after my minty soothing pampering, I toned my face using Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Toner. It claims as a “Wonder Woman for pores” which I thought proves it claims because it works on me, which clears out excess dirt, plus tightens my pores!

I’ve also applied it on my neck upwards to help minimize any possible early signs of aging.

Perfect Moisture Cream from Onsaemeein review


After toning and applying my favourite essence and serums, am now ready to indulge myself to some moisturizer. My current favourite is this Perfect Moisture Cream from Onsaemeein. What I do love about it is, it has a gentle watery texture (a bit similar to the moisturizer from Japanese brand – CURE) that is very easy to apply and absorbs perfectly which leaves that smooth bouncy texture!
I love it that am starting to get addicted to it effect!

And during day time, I never forgot to apply my favourite sunscreen protection – It’s My Sun Cream with SPF 45/ PA+++

It’s My Sun Cream with SPF 45/ PA+++ review

It’s crazy nowadays not to wear a sunscreen lotion especially with this crazy bipolar weather that we have here in Manila. Yes, I love the glaring sunshine on my skin, because it helps me to have that glowing tan complexion. But I hate it because over exposure under the sun will give me skin damage. Does it is a must for me to wear sunscreen protection.

And even am just inside the office, I still reapply sunscreen lotion especially that am always in front of my computer. Screen radiation also makes our skin dry and will give as early signs of aging, so a sunscreen lotion on our face is a must.

A special beauty tip that I’ve learned from a Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing, and look at her – she’s a Goddess!

Althea's Anti Pollution Kit is a Must to Your Beauty Table


So these are my current Korean beauty skincare favourites and I hope that you’ve learned something from my review. And I do hope that you could get this amazing limited-edition ALTHEA KOREA box because you’ll never ever regret it.

If you haven’t tried to order at ALTHEA KOREA, I suggest you try their beauty shopping app! You can check my shopping experience here, which I find shopping via app much easier, less complicated, and user-friendly!






xoxo, Blair

  33. I've participated in a few of these monthly secret box clubs before but none of the ones I have seen in the US has the quality contents that this does. And what a perfect match for you too! I really appreciated the warning on the cleansing water not being for drinking. It took me a few times of reading that before I really was convinced that indeed it wasn't for drinking. Alas, I'm always inspired by information like this to take better care of my fragile ginger skin, but despite a vanity full of similar products; they go almost completely untouched for months at a time! That's what a really need more than anything: a routine!
