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.

A month ago, Nivea had a collaboration with me and sent me their best sellers which comes in three product lines such as for anti-age, whitening and make-up remover. I really didn’t had any second thoughts accepting the collaboration because Nivea is one of my favorite beauty brands. Why? Most Nivea products are budget friendly, works well with my skin and the reviews are really good.
