Althea Korea : My First Checkout

First Althea Haul

Before I start, let me first clarify the air. I did not spent a single centavo on this order. Instead, I used the reward points I was given when I became a member of the Althea Angels Community. As members, we were welcomed with a very generous online credit of $30 worth of points. However the points will expire after 30 days from when they were first credited to our Althea accounts, which in my case was yesterday. Well, waste not, want not, right?

Here are the items I got. All of these are actually on my Althea wishlist so the only dilemma I faced was how many can I put in my cart that won’t go beyond the reward points and which ones took priority.

Leegeehaam Grow Hyal B5 Ampoule (Php 790). I added this to the cart because I felt like I had only a few more weeks left with the Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Serum. Hydrating serums are a huge part of my skincare routine now that I’m aware of my dehydrated skin. I just have to have a replacement serum on hand to replace the Benton one once I’ve finished it up.

The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer (Php320). This has been on my Althea wishlist ever since I downloaded the Althea app on my phone and registered.  I know there are other retailers here in the Philippines who sell it for less but if I can get it for free why not? Here’s hoping the shade I got is an exact match. It’s #1.0 Clear Beige by the way.

Petitfee Gold & EGF Eye Spot Patch(Php 420). I had a bit of difficulty choosing which Petitfee eye patch variant I was going to get. It was a close call between this and the Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch. Either way, I just wanted an eye patch that doesn’t slip down my face and I hope this’ll be the answer to my prayer.

Unpa Bubi Bubi Lip Scrub (Php 470). Lastly, the day I checked out, Althea was giving away one of 3 products for every order. Initially, I was about to add the Wangskin White Flower Mask Pack to the cart but since I just came from a face mask event a couple days ago, I got the lip scrub instead. I hope I don’t regret this — I do have the driest lips.

Althea Freebie Product August 2018

I carefully considered these with the knowledge that I don’t own (e.g. the lip scrub) or don’t have these items in a variety (e.g. the eye patch) in my stash. Having said that, I’m very excited to try them all at once. They will all be reviewed here eventually so stay tuned!
