Althea Unboxing

Hello everyone! After more than a year, I finally made some time to update my blog. Yey me!! *with matching London Tipton's voice* Anyway, here's a short post about my recent purchase from Althea.

I bought mostly skincare and some tools. Here are some individual photos:

1. Nella Black & Black Pore Cleansing Set (360php)

  • First impressions: The cleansing foam has a thin consistency, similar to that of essence/serums. It actually drips a little when I put some product on my fingers. I have used this for almost a week now. I haven't seen that much change with my pores. I guess I have to use this for a longer time. The brush that comes with it has very soft bristles. The cleansing foam has no tightening effect and leaves my skin looking clean, soft, and smooth. This also didn't make my skin breakout. The product's scent is also very similar to the scent of the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask.

2. Pitapat Eraser Peeling Gel (280php)

3. Lebaton Aqua Hydrating Essence Mask (37 x 5=  185php)

4. Calmia Oatmeal Cleansing Foam (110php)

5. Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist (260php)

  • I have yet to try this one. I'm still finishing my Aritaum Baby Face Mist in Collagen (which i love!! and the mist is soooo fine on the skin)

6.  It's My Eyelash Curler (80php)
  • First impressions: This is an okay product considering it's very cheap price. In comparison to my other eyelash curler, this one needs more pressure and repetition to get the curl I want.

7. It's My Cushion Case Sponge (40 x 2=  80php)
  • First impression: I've already used this one and it fits perfectly to my old Laneige Cushion case. 
8. It's My Cushion Case Puff (40 x 2=  80php)
  • First impressions: It's the same with the sponges that come with any other cushions (Laneige &  eutde house) I think they only have on supplier. Do they? Anyway, i'll try to look it up on the internet next time.

9. It's skin Power 10 Formula PO Effect (390php)
  • This claims to minimize enlarged pores, control sebum, and balance skin's water & oil content. 
  • First Impressions: I have used this for almost a week as well and mixed this with my Innisfree BB Cream when I made a DIY BB cushion (blog post soon!). I haven't notice that much difference and I didn't expect it to. This type of products require at least weeks before you really see the results.
10. It's Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effect (390php)
  • This claims to brighten the skin, lighten freckles, smoothen skin, and promote a fair & healthy complexion. I have yet to use this product. 

The subtotal is 2,215php but after I applied the coupon code GRABPH10, I had a discount of 210.5php. The total amount is 2,004.5php. I think the coupon code is still usable as of writing.

I have always find shopping in Althea convenient because the whole process (ordering + payment) is easy, the products are priced reasonably, the products are always on sale + coupon codes, and they ship directly from South Korea for less than a week. The only thing I wish is for them is to sell more brands and more products from each brands. Nonetheless, I love shopping Korean makeup from Althea.

If you want first impressions or a detailed review of any product listed above, please do comment it down below. Thank you for reading. Until next time!


  1. I thought you've quit your blog for good. I was surprised when I saw a notification that you've posted something. Hahaha! It's nice too see you being active again. I will wait for the Pitapat eraser peeling gel and nella cleansing foam review. ��

    1. I'm trying to make more time to update my blog but I always get lazy after posting 2-3 reviews hahaha! will definitely try harder this time. I will use the Pitapat peeling gel tonight for you and will probably post a first impression. Thank you for the comment!! :)

  2. It's skin Power 10 Formula PO Effect can for pimples?

    1. I have used this for more than a month now and it didn't make me break out. I actually am not suffering that much from pimples ever since I finished college/passed the board exams because the stress i experience definitely lessened. But I guess this also helps with pimples since it controls sebum and balances water & oil content. Whenever I do have a pimple, it doesn't last and fades away quicker than before. (but then again i'm not sure if this is purely because of the product because pimples are affected by a lot of factors such as pollution, stress, etc)
      Sorry for the long reply but I had to explain it further. Thanks for the comment!
