Althea Korea's First Birthday: The Online Destination For K-Beauty

Happy Birthday to Althea Korea!

I've been fascinated with Korean beauty and makeup ever since I watched the show K-Style but it was only pretty recently that I caught the Korean beauty bug, right after Shah came back from his work trip to Seoul with a small stash of K-Beauty things for me.

I absolutely loved The Saem products and was pretty bummed about not being able to re-purchase - that is, until I learned about Althea, the online destination for the best Korean beauty and makeup products (they also stock The Saem!).

Althea just turned one year old today, on 20th of July 2016, and to celebrate their 1st anniversary, Althea very generously gifted 100 Malaysian bloggers with free RM 150 worth of credit to shop on their site - can't tell you how happy I was to have been chosen! I had the hardest time choosing what to get; I considered buying only lipsticks at first but then I also wanted to dip my finger in everything that they had to offer - girl just wants them all!

In the end I'm pretty happy with all of my seven picks - which are not covered completely by the RM 150 free credit, but I was more than happy to use my RM 15 new-sign-up credit and topped that off with my own RM 45.

I just had to get at least one of The Saem Eco Soul KISS Button Lips matte lipsticks in the shade Propose, but I was most excited to try out Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher in Sugar Glam which is actually a highlighter (and to be honest I think it looked kind of when I tried it out the other day, so PS: Full review will come this way soon <3).

The other products I chose (and the decisions did NOT come easy!):
  • Tony Moly Perfect Eyes Coating Liner in Queen Burgundy
  • Too Cool For School Marshamallow Puff
  • Holika Holika Heartful Moisture Lipstick in Fresh Orange
  • Skinfood Black Sugar Mask
  • Etude House Dr Mascara Fixer for Perfect Lash

You can get in on the fun too; Althea's having over a month-long celebration of their first birthday! Be amongst the first 1500 buyers who order from today onwards and get their limited edition pink party box + part hat kit (like the badass one I'm sporting above) and some free full-sized goodies to be included in it. There's also a chance for a 100%-rebate offer to those who buy three of their best-seller items.

Now, what's an online party if there isn't a massive giveaway, right? If you've made a purchase and got it in their pink birthday box, which will include that cute customizable party hat, you'd definitely want to enter #AltheaTurns1 Instagram contest; some of the prizes up for grabs are Macbook Air, iPhone 6s and Althea's shopping credits worth $300.

A huge thank you to Althea and the Butterfly Project for this wonderful opportunity.


  1. What a present to receive a box like that!
