WHAT IS ALTHEA KOREA?

ph.althea.kr

It is the world’s largest online Korean beauty store with the lowest prices shipped directly from Korea. With Althea Korea, shopping became very simple because in their website everything is categorized into skincare, makeup, hair & body, Korea’s trendy and their best sellers and hot deals. Other than that, all their products are 100% authentic and you can even score your favorite Korean make-up at a very low price because almost everything is on sale and others are cheaper than local prices.

International shipping takes 10-15 days as says in their website however I have to commend Althea Korea because it took only 5 days for my box to arrive from the time I ordered it. They also have this 30 day returns policy wherein you can ask for replacement or return the item if you are not satisfied or there’s a damage on the items you ordered but in my experience I’ve never done returning the products or ask for replacement because the items where securely packed with bubble wrap.

You’ll get the chance to plot your upcoming posts and check it first the color balance if your upcoming uploads will correspond to you color palette.

Other features of UNUM:

  • You can have multiple accounts. If you’re like me with personal and business account, UNUM makes it easy to switch between different accounts.

It lets you know when you gained followers or you’ve lost them. Aside from that, it also tells you what your top posts are and what times of the day are best to post.
