There is a grain of truth behind retail therapy. When it comes to pampering ourselves, nothing beats a lovely visit to our favorite online beauty shops.
Whether you are eyeing a pretty pair of shoes or spending moolah over makeup or skincare products, shopping for our most favorite items online can be very calming and relaxing.
But as therapeutic as it may be, online shopping can be absolutely crazy and hilarious too. And at Althea Korea, shopping can be a total roller coaster ride.
For today’s blog post, I decided to take a quick break from writing reviews to highlight some of the crazy moments almost every one of us encounters when shopping at Althea Korea.
Let’s get this fun ride started!
1. You only need to buy one item, but ends up adding ten more items to cart.
You only need to restock your favorite toner, but you want to qualify for free shipping so you tell yourself to pick 3 more items. “Just three more items.”
But then you see that the lipstick you’ve been eyeing on since forever is on a 20% sale, so you add it to cart too. “Hey, it’s on sale!”
You keep on browsing and find out that the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is on a 1+1 Daebak Deal and you just can’t resist. Then you see Pikachu’s face on a blusher, on a cushion, on a cleansing foam, and you add everything to cart too. “But it has Pikachu’s face on it! Who says no to Pikachu?”
2. You always nearly get a heart attack every time Althea Korea puts up tons of exciting promos and sales and giveaways, and you always run to the site like crazy before everything gets sold out.
You check Althea Korea’s Facebook page and see that they now carry CosRx on the site. OMG! This is perfect. You can finally get your hands on the much-raved One Step Pimple Clear Pad. But before you can even catch your breath, almost all of the new arrivals from CosRx goes out of stock in a jiffy. *screams internally*
Welcome to the sweet torture of shopping at Althea Korea! Next time, tap as fast as you can and make sure to follow Althea Korea’s official Facebook and Instagram accounts to get the latest scoop on what’s brewing at Althea Land.
3. Yay! An item is back in stock. But just when you are about to check out, everything in your cart goes out of stock again.
Seriously, it is totally heartbreaking when the items in your cart go out of stock. But nothing beats the joyful feeling when the items get restocked again and when you are finally able to check out everything in your cart and successfully place an order. One thing is for sure: it’s always a roller coaster ride when shopping at Althea Korea.
4. Your Althea package finally arrives at your doorstep and you are beyond excited. You open your pink box and the first thing you look for are freebies.
Althea’s Elves sneak freebies into the boxes randomly, so receiving samples is all a matter of luck. But nothing makes an Althea haul ever more exciting than seeing a sachet sample, or a free sheet mask or even a full-sized product carefully placed together with your purchase. So lucky!
5. You are dubbed with a new name and everyone calls you Althea.
Every week you receive a package from Althea Korea, and your Mom now decides to call you by your new name. “Hello Althea, you’ve got mail.” Everyone from the office also calls you Althea, and you are now friends with the delivery man (and guess what, he calls you Althea too!)
So there you have it! I hope you had fun with today’s blog post. Were you able to relate to some of the experiences mentioned above? What’s your most hilarious experience with online shopping so far? Share your stories in the comment section below.
