WHAT IS ALTHEA KOREA?
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.
As for the shipping, as long as you have purchased PHP999 and above it’s already marked as FREE SHIPPING and they also have cash on delivery method of payment if you don’t have any cards or you wanna make sure that the items will arrive first before you pay. 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.
It’s a light weight loose powder which gives a silky finish made with pure, natural ingredients. One of the main ingredients is Althea flower extracts.
Based on Althea’s website, it is made with micro-fine particles that minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines to reveal a flawless petal-like complexion. Its translucent and perfecting qualities also create a satin finish that mattifies without dehydrating the skin.
- Make-up setting and long wearing
- Micro-fine particles and soft, smooth texture
- Natural and cruelty free ingredients
- Sebum control and pore blurring – 100% pure silica has excellent oil-absorbing properties for long-lating excess Sebum-control.
- Packaging – very feminine.
- Scent – Thumbs up!!!!! Just mild floral scent.
- Product itself – Light and handy. This is already the powder I am using for my go to make-up because it has glowing effect and easily blur my pores and yeah the price is reasonable. Worth buying!!!!

K-beauty is now today’s trend and have been dominating the beauty convention over the past years. I’m pretty sure that everyone of us love Korean products most especially their cosmetics and skincare essentials. Let’s start with the packaging which is totally cute and for sure you will not throw away the box. Like me, I like recycling them for flatlay purposes. When it comes to skincare, no doubt that I will choose Korean brands because my skin is sensitive. Upon comparing to other international brands, Korean brands is the perfect one for my sensitive skin because it offers a modern and mindful approach. Are you familiar with the 10 step Korean skincare routine? You have to follow these steps to achieve a flawless and healthy skin.
- Make-up remover and Oil cleanser
- Water-based cleanser
- Toner/Skin softener/Refresher
- Essence – a kind of toner and serum hybrid made for hydrating.
- Serums, Boosters and Ampoules
- Sheet masks
- Eye cream
- Sun Protection
Moving on to cosmetics, we all know that Korea offers also a wide variety of cosmetics from their famous primer, BB/CC Cream, Cushions, Highlighters, Fundation, Tint, Balm, Palette and many more. And these are the reasons I’m into Korean cosmetics – innovativeness and continuous experimentation. First on the list of my favorites is their cushion which is really fun. I love those because it makes it easier to apply.
To sum it up the above mentioned, there is this question where to buy those products then?. Yeppunonnie is the answer.
Yeppunonnie is an online marketplace for Korean products. It is built to cater the K-beauty needs to Filipino customers aside from the usual brands that we already have in our country but also brands that are only available in Korea such as Abbamart, Amini, IPKN, 3WC, Aery Jo and Make up Helper.
Last Tuesday, January 24 at Valkyrie, Yeppunonnie in collaboration with Ouniwang brought the K-beauty in a whole new level. It was an event filled with games, demos, giveaways and freebies of K-beauty products featured on Yeppunonnie. You heard it right! Giveaways and freebies were given away not only to b/vloggers but to everyone who’s at the event. In short, that night Korean beauty products were all over the place so my blogger bestie, Mavie and I went crazy every booth to score those beauty products we wanted to have and we didn’t fail on that. Wohoooo!!!
At midnight, we got another bonus of an all night partying with Kpop star, Jay Park and so Valkyrie went wild as soon as Jay Park started to show up on stage, perform his hits, showed up his muscles and of course his abs!!!!!! His tats were cool too
Oops muscles and abs spotted ❤
