Althea Korea's First Birthday Promotions

One of my favourite K-Beauty sites turns one today and there's no better way of celebrating than with pink party decor and lots of birthday promos!

If you haven't heard of Althea yet, they are Korea's premier online beauty destination offering a wide variety of skincare and makeup brands at very reasonable prices. Get your K-Beauty fix and shop products from Banila Co., Innisfree, Tony Moly, Skinfood, The Face Shop, Etude House and more. The best part? They offer FREE shipping for orders above P1,500 and packages are shipped from Korea straight to your doorstep. No more trips to the Post Office, exorbitant taxes and additional fees!

So what's in store for us during Althea's Birthday Celebration from July 20-31?
● For orders placed on July 20 onwards, get a limited edition Birthday Box + a DIY Party Kit. I like that their boxes are not only sturdy, they're pretty enough to recycle/ reuse and display on your desk. (While stocks last.)

● Anyone up for free goodies? The first 1,500 shoppers will receive not just samples but full-sized beauty products together with their order! (While stocks last.)

● Choose 3 of their best-selling products and get a 100% REBATE! The Birthday Rebate will be credited into your Althea Korea account.

● #AltheaTurns1 Instagram Contest: Once you receive your Althea party kit, wish them a Happy Birthday on Instagram with the hashtag #altheaturns1 and get the chance to win amazing prizes such as a Macbook Air, Ipad Air 2, iPhone 6S, Galaxy S6 Edge, Canon EOS M10 Selfie Camera, store credits and beauty hampers from Althea! A total of KRW10,000,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs. Contest starts from 20th July - 15th August, 2016.

Terms and conditions apply. Please refer to their website and Facebook page for more details.

This is actually the second time I ordered from them. I previously bought the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream, Innisfree Volcanic Clay Capsule Recipe pack, Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel and the Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream, which I need to repurchase as I have about 5% left.

What did I buy this time around? After being in my wishlist for months, I finally purchased a bottle of the MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence (currently at 40% off!). A supposed dupe for the high-end SKII Facial Treatment Essence, this contains 80% Fermented Yeast Concentrate, which absorbs instantly to energize your skin. It also has Niacinamide, which is a Vitamin B3 component that improves elasticity, enhances skin barrier function, and revives skin tone and texture.

Having tried samples of the FTE together with their Time Revolution Clear Toner and Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule (loved it so much I bought a full-size bottle,) Missha is fast becoming one of my go-to K-Beauty brands.

Also included in my order is the SAEM Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Cleansing Water. I've always been interested in cleansing waters but haven't had the chance to try them. Added this bottle to my cart because I love that it's a one-step cleansing product plus, my skin loves anything green tea.

Have you purchased anything from Althea Korea recently? Which products do you recommend? :)
