In June 2015, Althea was founded to bridge authentic K-beauty to world. It gives the lowdown on all things K-Beauty including debunking the latest Korean beauty trends, trying out the coolest products and even exclusive peeks into what's happening on Althea
We love food! It's delicious, nourishing, and for centuries, the ingredients from our kitchens have made it into the beauty routines of women (and men!) all over the world. Packed with nourishing properties, these ingredients give the skin vitality and more often than not, treat targetted skin concerns. It was only natural that our products of the modern world have evolved from the traditional recipies of our ancestors, and lucky for us, we've found some favorites that include these ingredients. Here are some of our favourite beauty pantry must-haves!
Innisfree Sea Salt Perfect Cleanser
Starting from the very fundamentals of a kitchen, salt is used to season most dishes to give it taste. Apart from its taste-enhancing abilities, it's also packed with minerals and works as an effective exfoliator to get rid of dead skin cells. This cleanser uses it as its star ingredient, lathering up into a rich foam that removes impurities from the skin as well as help even out the texture for a fresh and supple complexion.
It's My Skin Sheet Mask - Milk
Did your momma ever tell you to drink milk so you'll grow up good and strong? Turns out that it's not just brilliant for your bones, it's fantastic for your face too. It's My uses milk extracts in its concentrated essence for this sheet mask to brighten and moisturize the skin. With a pure cotton sheet, this sheet mask makes it super easy to really get that goodness absorbed well into the skin.
Calmia Oatmeal Cleansing Oil
Just another breakfast food? Think again! Oatmeal is more than just delicious with fruits and honey, it's pack with antioxidants and purifying properties to ensure your skin is youthful and healthy. This cleansing oil helps to remove makeup and contains oatmeal extracts to deep cleanse the skin while ensure it stays nice and moisturized. The result is clean, soft skin that's bouncy to the touch.
The Face Shop Rice & Ceramide Toner
If you're one to love carbs, you'll definitely love this! One of our faves here at Althealand, this delicious treat for the skin packs a hydrating punch. Made with rice extracts, this aids in brightening as well as providing moisture deep into the layers of the skin, plumping up fine lines and prepping the skin to take on the next step of your skincare routine.
Skinfood Black Sugar Mask
Sugar is as good for adding into your tea as it is to treat your skin. This mask uses brown sugar to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells while keeping it moisturized for a youthful complexion. It also helps improve the blood circulation of the skin, encouraging collagen production and improving elasticity. We love how yummy this smells too!
Ah, how wonderful can food be! We're in love with these beauty finds and we hope that you'll enjoy them too. You can find these and other cool K-beauty products on Althea's site.

If you’ve been around Althea for a while, you’ll know that RiRe has been one of our favorite trendy brands to date. Best known for their invention of the Lip Powder (the real innovative OG) and bestselling Lip Manicures, RiRe proudly shows off their infamous, sleek black packaging that houses quality products. From the French word that means ‘to laugh and enjoy’, RiRe works to embody confidence and encourage experimentation while bringing joy when it comes to makeup and beauty. To truly celebrate this brand, we thought it was only fitting that we’d have a ‘Brand Day’ on Althealand to showcase their amazing products. Their pore-care sticks have gained a lot of traction lately, so we thought we’d do a little showcase here on the blog on what their makeup range has to offer. Here are some of our top makeup picks from them!
Luxe Matte Lipstick Previously featured on our blog, these matte lipstick have made quite the wave on Althealand. They apply on creamy onto the lips before drying down to a budge-proof matte finish, coating your pucker in a chic coat of solid colour. Be sure to exfoliate before application for a seriously smooth finish.
Glow Lipstick The sheen of dreams! These gorgeous range of lipsticks from RiRe are made with a pigmented formula that glides onto the lips, leaving behind a juicy glow. Made with nourishing oils, this helps to smoothen out the lips’ fine lines and moisturize them so you’re left with a delightfully comfortable pout. It also helps to gently tint the lips for a longer wear time. Did we mention that we love the click-to-open container too? So classy!
Luxe Gel Eyeliner Lifeproof? More like apocalypse-proof! Rire’s Gel Eyeliner is a tough cookie; this twist-up liner is creamy and glides on without much effort, but once it sets, it doesn’t budge. Water, sweat and oil proof, this liner glides on easily and stays put until you’re ready to take it off. Take your pick from 10 different shades to suit your mood, and you’ll be looking good all day minus the hassle. We love this especially on hard-to-stay areas like the waterline and outer corners of the eye.
Luxe Slim Eyebrow Nothing quite gives a look it's finesse like a good brow, so take the on-fleek route with this dual-ended brow pencil. With an easy-to-apply product on one end and a handy spoolie on the other, this pencil has a super fine tip (just 1.5mm) that gives you the option to draw in natural hairs or super precise lines.
Luxe Full Cover Concealer Say bye-bye to blemishes and dark circles with this full coverage concealer! Made with a creamy formula, this concealer blends out easily to cover just about anything, and stays put up to 6 hours. For some extra precision, use a brush to dab onto your blemishes and just tap with your finger to blend out.
RiRe’s spoiled us for choice and we can’t get enough of their amazing products. If you’d like to hunt down any of these products or see what else RiRe has to offer, then be sure to check out Althea’s site for their brand day coming up real soon. Would you try some of these items mentioned above? What’s your favorite RiRe product? Let us know in the comments down below! Have a magical day! xx Syd Althea’s Mermaid
Whether your head is up in the clouds, or you're grounded here on earth, there's no denying the beauty of the galaxy. Little glimmers in the sky leave many awonder, and for centuries it has inspired artists of all walks of live, including those who create beauty products too! We're definitely intruiged by the miracles and mystics of what the Milky Way has to offer, so here are some of our favorite picks so you can be your own megawatt star, even when the sky is at is darkest.
XOY Auraactivation Base
Give your skin the shimmer of the galaxy with this gorgeous base/primer from XOY. With pearlescent pigments, this helps to even out the skin and give your makeup a lit-from-within look, perfect for creating that chok-chok glow. It's also made with ingredients that moisturize and plump up fine lines, so you'll be left with even, hydrated skin that's ready to take on your makeup.
How to use: Apply evenly onto the skin and gently pat in to blend out.
Etude House Bling Bling Eyestick
They say that eyes are the windows to the soul, so why not give them a glimpse into the constellations with your eyes? These easy-to-blend eyeshadow sticks come in a slightly creamy formula that glide easily onto the eyes, defining them and giving them some extra sparkle that's great for any occasion. Pick your favorite out of 9 shades to suit your mood. How to use: Pop open the cap, twist up and apply directly onto the eyelids. Blend out with a brush or your fingers for a seamless finish.
Nakeup Face C-Cup Lip Tox-tick
Any woman can sparkle like a supernova with the right lipstick! These lipsticks from Nakeup Face come in exquisit, luxurious packaging that'll wow any crowd you're with. With a lip plumping formula, they work to smoothen out fine lines and moisturize the lips, leaving them drenched in vivid colour with a juicy finish. We love the slightly minty feeling this gives our pout too! How to use: Twist up and apply directly onto the lips.
Missha 7 Days Coloring Hair Treatment
For hair that's as interesting as the galaxy, give it some colour without the damage with Missha's hair colour treatment! Formulated with nourishing ingredients, this contains proteins and nutrients that help repair and moisturize the hair, sealing in those cuticles for healthy, strong locks. The colour itself only gently tints the outer most layer of the strands, so you don't have to worry about it damaging your hair. Our favorite shade for this is definitely Smoke Blue, a gorgeous navy that reminds us of the mystery that is the night sky.
How to use: Shampoo your hair, then towel dry as best as you can. Apply the product evenly onto the hair and leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off with water.
Chica Y Chico Cool Night Peel Off Pack
Pamper your skin while you stargaze wih this peel-off pack that effectively cools down the skin while minimizing pores. It also helps to detoxify the skin, drawing out impurities from the pores and evening out the skin texture, while ensure that it still stays supple and bouncy to the touch. We also love the ethereal packaging and the cooling, refreshing sensation leaves on the skin to really soothe the senses.
How to use: On clean skin, apply a thin, even layer and leave on for about 30 minutes to dry. Once dried, peel off and wipe away any leftover residue.
We love these products and how much they make us feel like galaxy princesses! All of these items can be found on Althea's site, so be sure to check them out for yourself.

Want to live the luxurious life on a budget? We love feeling like royalty now and again, that's why we're all about infusing a little bit of gold into our beauty routine! Onsaemeein's Lumiere Gold Daily Cream is one of those products that feel richer than it looks, and we definitely thought it's such a hidden gem. Here's the beauty breakdown on this golden winner!
Onsaemeein's philosophy is simple: use natural ingredients to create quality products for a reasonable price. They've tailor-made their products to suit the urban woman in both lifestyle and hectic work schedule, so their stuff is definitely worth checking out if you want to care for your skin even when you're busy. With the Lumiere Gold Daily Cream, they prove that luxury isn't just for the wealthy: this rich cream moisturizes the skin for a healthy, youthful glow.
Formulated with 24k gold flakes, this cream claims to have anti-aging and skin firming properties for a youthful radiance. It also contains a range of other nourisihing ingredients like propolis, shea butter, niacinamide and adenosine that work to moisturize and brighten the skin. The texture of the product itself is pretty thick, and it leaves any dry patches instantly nourished. You can even see the gold flakes as you apply it onto the skin. It does feel slightly sticky on the skin, so it would be especially fantastic for those with really dry skin. A little does go a long way with this product, so you'll definitely want to start out with a small amount and add as needed.
My skin felt nice and moisturized after applying on the Lumiere Gold Daily Cream, and you can definitely see it looking brighter too. It didn't feel too tacky once I pat all of it in, and it'd be great for drier days.
This was actually featured in our Gold Sparkling Box from last year! If you didn't manage to get your hands on that, you can find the Lumiere Gold Daily Cream and all of Onsaemeein's other products on Althea's site. What do you guys think of this? Have you tried it for yourself? Let us know in the comments down below!
The year of 2018 has been casted with harnessing the powers of the mythical, creative and illusive. It's no wonder that the Pantone colour of this year is ultraviolet: a rich purple with sapphire tones that's sure to invoke anyone's passion and atistry. This gorgeous shade has found itself the center of attention in magazines, fashion, and even food! It was only right that we incorporated this decadent hue in our beauty routines too. Here are some of Althea's favorite ultraviolet picks for this year!
Missha Night Repair Borabit Ampoule
Give your skin some ethereal lovin' with Missha's Night Repair Borabit Ampoule, an all-nourishing concentrate that hydrates, smoothens, plumps and gives an overall radiance to your complexion. Infused with purple hued Lactobacillus extract, this works on your skin as you catch your beauty sleep, giving it a change to repair and refresh the skin cells at the skin's peak renewal period. It also contains vegetable collagen and 7 types of vitamins for a youthful glow.
Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask

Abbamart Shy Smile Blusher
Here's a really easy way to infused this cool shade into your everyday routine! Lavender Garden is a unique, slightly blue-based light purple that looks really quite natural on your cheeks. This blush is all matte, so you don't have to worry about it looking too unnatural. It superfine pigments also mean that this blends easily onto the cheeks (no patchyness here!). Just swirl a cheek brush into it and blend onto the apples of the cheeks.
Glamfox Fleurissant Lip Glow
Indulge your creative energy with this dainty, super pretty lipstick. With little gold flecks and a flower embeded right in the center, this lipstick changes depending on your body's temperature, giving your lips a natural pink glow. Our favorite shade Witch Flower is made with an array of flower extracts including that of chamomile, hibiscus, calendulla, damask rose, daisy, magnolia, lily, lilium and lavender to hydrate and remove any dryness. Kiss those chapped lips goodbye!

We're all about trying out new and innovative products in the K-Beauty line, and it's always a lot of fun when we get to try out a something fresh. XOY is one of our latest and hottest offerings, and we're excited to have them land on Althea shores! Take a ride with us and come discover some of our favorite products from XOY. XOY's name comes from a combination of 'X' to signify the unknown and 'joy', creating products that encourage creativity from people of all walks of life while empowering them and boosting their confidence through beauty. We got our hands on a couple of their bestsellers including a unique face cleanser, nourishing face mask and an illuminating base. Here's the beauty breakdown on what XOY has to offer!
White Cream Cleansing Pack
Busy schedule? This 2-in-1 cleanser and pack claims to cleans, soothes, controls sebum, hydrates, removes impurities, exfoliates and protects, all in one, making it especially great for those of us leading that hustle-life. A little goes a long way with this and its creamy texture makes it easy to apply on. Start off with a dry face and evenly coat it, then leave for a minute or two for the pack to set. Add a bit of water massage in circular motions to create a rich lather, before rinsing off with water. You'll be left with soft, smooth skin that feels fresh and clean.
Eggplant Mask Pack
Y'all know we're no strangers to sheet masks. In fact, we love them lots at Althealand! Pamper your skin with these sheets of wonder packed with goodness from the pantry. Eggplant, honey and coconut extracts make up an essence that's soothing, moisturizing and nourishing. When coupled with a thin but sturdy sheet mask, we have a winner! Sit back, relax and pamper your skin with this for 15-20 minutes before removing. End by gently and lovingly massaging the leftover essence into the skin, using patting motions for better absorption.
If you're looking for some serious chok-chok looking skin, you've come to the right place. The Auraactivation Base is a gorgeous illuminating base that gives you a 'lit from within' look (definitely Mermaid-approved). It smoothes uneveness and hydrates the skin, leaving it in a radiant glow. This baby also helps to prolong the wear of your foundation, so you can look and feel fresh all day long. Just smooth evenly onto the skin before makeup for that K-Beauty radiance!
We love what XOY has to offer and these three make a pretty good skin base! Check out our video on how we created the perfect canvas below.

All of XOY's products can be found on Althea's site (just pop XOY into the search bar). What do you guys think of XOY's products? Have you had a chance to try them out for yourselves? If not, which would you like to try first? Let us know in the comments below!
If you've been keeping up with us, you'll know we've had something HUGE that we've been working on. Thanks to you guys, our first baby, the Petal Velvet Powder was a success! Following that, we wanted to create something that could be the cornerstone of K-Beauty for our fans and customers. With skincare routines becoming more and more complicated, we wanted to strip it all back to the fundamentals, and with that, Althea's Bare Essential range was born!
Althea's beauty philosophy is self-explanatory: simple perfection, and with such, we wanted to create a line of skincare products that aren't just skin nourishing, but also leave the skin looking great. We wanted it to complete the skin's makeup without actually wearing makeup on. As over-complicated skincare routines can clog pores and leave the skin looking fatigued, the Bare Essentials range needed to be able to provide the skin with the necessities without any additional cost or steps to the regime, making it suitable for the busy urbanite of today. The Bare Essential range features 3 quintessential products that can be used for any skin type: a Contour Cleanser, a Primer Water and a Fixer Cream.
Cleansing is super important as this is the step to ensure your skin is ready to take on any of the goodness your skincare products will provide after. The Contouring Cleanser is made with micro capsules that gently melt into the skin, gently exfoliating away any dead skin cells and impurities from the skin. Infused with ice plant and lemon myrtle extracts, this cleanser not only ensures your skin is clean but also strengthens and refreshes for a healthy complexion. It also helps to promote blood circulation, effectively reducing swelling for a defined, slim face shape.
How to use: Dampen the skin, then squeeze out a small amount and lather onto the face, massaging in circular motions. Rinse off with water after.
Both a hydrating toner and primer in one, this bottle of wonder is incredibly smooth, silky and almost balm-like on the skin. Made with snow lotus extract, the Primer Water contains patented 'dewdrop' technology that allows hydration to penetrate within the layers of the skin, plumping them up for a youthful glow. This provides the skin with immediate moisture, allowing it to soak right in for skin that looks revitalized from within. Here's a pro tip: want some extra moisture? Pat in a second layer to up your skincare game!
How to use: Pour out a small amount and apply evenly onto the face, gently patting in for better absorption.
Seal in all that hydration withthe Fixer Cream, a non-oily, quick absorbing moisturizer formulated with nourishing ingredients. This little jar packs quite a punch in the moisture department thanks to trehalose (a powerful humectant that retains moisture on the skin), and provides the skin with hydration for up to 24 hours for a smooth and supple radiance. It's also rich in antioxidents from wild green tea extracts, and helps to promote collagen in the skin using baobab tree extract, leaving your skin looking great and feeling bouncy to the touch.
How to use: Apply evenly onto the face and gently pat in till absorbed.
Whether you're a novice to the K-Beauty game, a seasoned beauty junkie looking for a restart or someone who's just looking for a completely curated regime to try out, Bare Essentials has something to suit everyone's needs. Althea's Bare Essentials line doesn't just look and feel good, it's also hypoallergenic, making it suitable for all skin types as it won't irritate or cause sensitivities too. This range is also cruelty-free, so no cute furry animals were harmed in the process of making these products (yay!).
We're super excited to finally be able to share this with you guys, and we can't thank you enough for your love and support that made all of this possible. The Bare Essentials range is officially exclusively available for purchase on Althea's site, so be sure to check it out. What do you guys think of the simplified skincare routine? Which of these are you most excited to try out? Let us know in the comments down below!

We've given you the steps, now we give you the products! Following the famous Korean skincare routine, Althea has finally curated a 7 Step Korean Skincare Box. Whether you're looking for somewhere to start your regime or looking to try out new products without worrying about matching them, this box is made for everyone to try out the regime for themselves in mind. This special edition of the Althea box comes with 7 full sized products to take you from cleansing all the way to pampering. Are you ready to take on the K-Beauty challenge? Here's the beauty breakdown of Althea's 7 Step Korean Skincare Box!
Step 1: Natural Pacific Perfect Deep Cleansing Oil
Start of nice and strong, are we right? It's super important to cleanse the skin properly as makeup and dirt can clog the pores when leftover on the skin. Do the double cleanse method and start off with an oil like this one that contains plant-based oils to remove impurities from the pores. You'll be surprised at how quickly it melts makeup away too!
How to use:Massage a small amount onto dry face, making sure to dissolve makeup thoroughly before adding a little bit of water to emulsify. Finally, rinse off with water.
Step 2: The Saem Healing Tea Garden Tea Tree Cleansing Water
Clear off any leftover residue with a cleansing water to prep the skin for the next step. This one from The Saem is Mermaid-approved and contains tea tree that has anti-bacterial properties to soothe and treat blemishes. It's also super effective at hydrating and softening for skin that's soft and bouncy to the touch.
How to use: Saturate a cotton pad with product then wipe onto the skin, starting from the center of the face and working your way out till no more residue is left.
Step 3: Dr. Frog Control-Tox Peeling Gel
Whisking away dead skin gives your pores a chance to get up close and personal with your skin care products, allowing them to mingle and get down to business. It’s recommended to exfoliate twice a week for softer, smoother and brighter looking skin. This exfoliator makes the most out of enzymic peeling to gently but effectively remove dead skin cells for an even complexion. Did we mention that we love how it smells too?
How to use: Squeeze out a small amount and apply evenly onto the face. Wait for a minute, then massage the skin in circular motions to remove dead skin cells. Rinse after with water.
Step 4: Son & Park Beauty Water
Prep the skin to take on your skincare goodies with a beauty water that tones, cleanses and hydrates the skin. This multitasking product is made with skin-loving ingredients like willow bark, papaya, lavender, rose and orange fruit extracts to mildly exfoliate, brighten and hydrate the skin, getting it ready to absorb the following steps of your beauty routine to its fullest potential. Bonus tip: you can dispense some of this into a small spray bottle and carry it in your purse to spritz on as a face mist throughout the day.
How to use: Saturate a cotton pad with product then wipe onto the skin, starting from the center of the face and working your way out.
Leaguertox V-Shot Silhouette Lifting Ampoule
Ampoules are concentrates designed to target a specific skin need you may have. With super face shaping powers, this one from Leaguertox is formulated with raspberry extracts to plump and firm up the skin, filling out those pesky fine lines and saggy skin for a youthful glow. Concentrate this around the eye, smile lines and neck areas for best results!
How to use:Apply a small amount evenly onto the skin and gently pat into the skin for better absorption.
Rire Camu Camu Moisture Cream
Seal all that moisture in with some camu camu plant extract! It's packed full of vitamin C (15%!), so this cream doesn't just hydrate, it brightens and smoothens the skin too. This luxurious cream has a slightly stringy texture to it, and a little definitely goes a long way to be mindful of that.
How to use:Apply a small amount evenly onto the skin and gently pat into the skin for better absorption.
Lebaton Pearl Whitening Essence Mask
We love sheet masks, so this was a definite must have for us. Sit back and relax while this mask hydrates and brightens the skin with an essence that contains real pearl extracts.This mask claims that its essence is three times more effective than regular serums, brightening dull, tired complexions for radiant skin.
How to use: Apply onto the face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Remove and pat in any leftover essence into the skin.
