Althea Korea Haul

Previously, I talked about my shopping experience with Althea Korea. This time, I will be blogging about my haul. My Php 1509 got me the following items:

  • Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel - ₱245 ₱180
  • NellaAura B.B Foundation - ₱720 ₱270
  • W-Lab Sebum Out - ₱560 ₱280 
  • Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam - ₱390 ₱270
  • Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer - ₱1,000 ₱280
  • The Face Shop Bamboo Soothing Gel - ₱348 ₱270
  • Etude House Drawing Eye Brow - ₱178 ₱160
  • Elizavecca Black Head solution 3-Step Nose Pack - ₱140 ₱60

As you can see, the items I got are all on sale and I love it! The total cost of the items should be Php 1770 but since I used the Php 150 discount/points I got by subscribing to their newsletter, Php 61 discount of new arrival items and another Php 50 due to the coupon code I used, the amount due was reduced to Php 1509. And since my purchase exceeded Php 1500, shipping fee is waived.

Althea Korea Shopping Experience

It's been three months since I gave birth to my son and being a hands-on, still "yaya-less" mama, I have been out of the house twice or thrice only - either to shop for the most basic needs or process some documents like my SSS Maternity benefit. I haven't had the chance to do my usual "check check" of items like beauty and skin care products, shoes, clothes and household stuff since each time I go to the mall, I always hurry back home to be with my bundle of joy.

So what's a busy mom who needs her beauty supplies got to do? Online shopping! I was supposed to shop from a local vendor but for some reason, their system will not accept my credit card number and I didn't have paypal funds that time so I went to look for other sites. I chanced upon Althea Korea and upon checking, I learned that they offer a wide range of Korean products at a lesser price.

Filling my virtual shopping bag is fun but confusing since I'm only familiar with a few Korean brands. Reading product reviews helped a lot though.

When purchasing, one needs to have an account with them. Creating an account is very easy. You just have to fill out the form below and submit. Also, if you subscribe to their newsletter, you will be given Php 150 points which you can use when purchasing.

Once you are sure of the product you want to buy, all you have to do is simply click the "BUY" button on the right side of the screen as shown below. When you are done choosing the products and ready to pay, you just have to click the "CHECKOUT" button on the right side of the screen. If you have a discount/coupon code, you need to enter it before checking out. You will also need to decide whether or not to use all your points (Php 150) for this purchase. As for me, I decided to use all as I'm not sure when I will be purchasing again and the remaining points, should I not use all, might be considered expired by then.
