Happy weekend everyone! This week was filled up to the brim with so many exciting things, one of which was the pink party celebration of Althea Korea’s first birthday! For those who are not familiar with Althea Korea, you can check my previous post here.
Last week, I was thrilled beyond words when Althea made an announcement on their Facebook page about some upcoming grand surprise.
On July 19 (Tuesday), Althea posted an update again which made me dance and jump and holler like crazy!
The next morning I woke up to the grand surprise that is Althea’s pink birthday bash! There were pink balloons and boxes and ribbons everywhere! From their Facebook page to their website, everything was screaming with pink.
Beauty bloggers posted their birthday hauls (for they were the first ones to get hold of Althea’s birthday treats) and it made me all the more excited for the great surprises and treats Althea has in store.

I am looking forward to getting my Birthday Treats from Althea. But for now, I will be sharing my third haul which I ordered last week and which also happened to arrive the same day as Althea’s birthday! Well, it may not be the limited edition birthday box (because that is yet to arrive next week) but still it made me so so happy to get another pink package again from Althea.
What’s in the box:
- It’s My Auto Lip Brush
I first got this lip brush during my first ever haul from Althea, and I loved how compact and travel-friendly it is, so I decided to get another one. The material is good and its size makes it fit perfectly in my pouches. The best part is it is only PHP 40!
- It’s My Cushion Puff
I am fairly new to the cushion craze. Recently I got my first ever cushion which was the new 2016 Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control and I figured I will be needing more cushion puff in the future because puffs can get messy a little too quickly. Good thing Althea also have this cushion puff from It’s My which retails for only PHP40 each!
- Piolang CP-1 Protein Silk Ampoule
A must-have for dry damaged hair. This is my first time to try this product and I am looking forward to great results. This is priced at PHP 70 each.
- Raclia Half Sponge Pad
I got two boxes of these in my previous haul. It is a good alternative to ordinary cotton pads because these are partly cotton and partly sponge. The cotton pads act like a sponge and absorb the toner very well, and when you put the cotton pad onto your face, it transfers the toner onto your face effectively. I love it so much that I posted a review on Althea’s review section. It is only PHP 80 freaking pesos for 40 double sheets!
- Innisfree No-Sebum Blur Primer
This very popular Korean brand is not available locally so for the longest time I was not able to try them out. But thank heavens for Althea Korea! Althea introduced me to Innisfree, and when I finally got to try a few of their products I fell madly in love. (I love their cleansers so much!) Having said that, there is no way I am missing out on this highly-talked-about primer. This primer is supposed to create a smooth skin canvass by evening out pores and fine lines. This is a 25ml product priced at PHP 450.
- Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder
The K-Beauty world is filled with raves of this wonder powder and I’m so glad to finally give it a try! Althea offers the cheapest price of PHP 260 as compared to other beauty sites. *daebak*
- Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Pact
I got this because I want to try to compare the powder type with the pact type. It is housed in a mint green packaging and it comes with a puff. I am acutally not expecting it to be quite tiny but it is cute anyway. A little too steep at PHP 480 but hey it’s Innisfree.
I am loving my third haul from Althea! As always, my order arrived promptly and everything was packaged very well. I will write a few in-depth reviews of the beauty products I got from my previous hauls soon and I will also post an update as soon as I get my hands on my pink birthday box. This has been quite a lengthy post already.
