A very happy birthday to Althea Korea! If you don’t already know, you’re totally missing out if you’re into K-beauty products. They are an online portal founded in June 2015, and they serves as a bridge to bring authentic K-beauty products to Southeast Asia, at the lowest price. They have so many popular brand names under their belt, such as 3CE, Laneige, Face Shop, Etude House, Nature Republic, just to name a few, it makes shopping online a whole lot easier and yes, they will totally make you spend more money than you intend to because they have so many things and you just want to try them all!
Last year when I was working together with them, I chose a couple of 3CE products. I had like 2 lippies, 1 loose foundation and some stuffs from Etude House.
This year, in-conjunction with their first birthday, I picked the following products.
Happy me with their limited edition birthday box.
I used 5 out of 6 items from what I’ve picked.
Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar in Juicy Pop
This is an extremely popular item because Song Hye Kyo or Kang Mo Yuen in Descendants of the Sun actually used. Yes, I grabbed my hands on this one. I’m so sorry the lighting of the place couldn’t really bring out the colours, but I will update again if I manage to capture nicer photos ok.
Witch’s Pouch in SD-1 Royal Golden Beam
I’m a huge lover of shades of brown because I think it suits my eye best and probably anyone’s for that matter. The texture is lightweight and glides onto my eyelids easily, and it can last me the whole day out. The photos wee taken after work, so that’s more than 12 hours of being out and about.
It’s My Eye Maker & Eyelash Curler
The eyelash curler works pretty much like any curlers I’ve used and the Eye Maker is actually eyelid glue where you can create your double eyelid. It works totally well too for my faux eyelashes and it is so affordable!
Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel
I’ve mentioned before I have extremely sensitive skin, and thus far, I’ve stopped using all kinds of moisturizers but I find aloe vera works very well for me. It was by chance I found out actually because I went swimming and got sunburnt, and I put aloe vera on my face. That was when I thought it really works wonders and I’ve been using ever since. I was using another brand’s aloe vera and when I saw this, I was like, okay, I need to get this. So far it is working fine on my skin so all is good. My skin is hydrated, so my face produces lesser oil, thus, I have a less oily face! In Singapore’s context, with the humidity, it is very difficult to keep my face oil free, but aloe vera does help me somehow and my face is not as oily as before.
It’s My Cushion Puff
Last but not least, from the items I received from Althea, is this cushion puff. I have not used it yet but I’m sure it works like any other cushion puff and it will serve its purpose. Haha!
I took the photos foundation/bb cream/ loose powder free. So I only had eyebrow, eye and lip makeup on.
