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
Hot, hot, hot! Summertime is here, and while our skin desperately needs the hydration, the idea of being an oil slick by midday in the humidity and heat is enough to break us out in a sweat. While nobody is fond of having excessively greasy skin, trying to mop up oil with and blotting papers can cause dehydration, while applying on layers and layers of powder can lead to cakey, unsightly skin. That’s why we knew we had to try out Torriden’s Banchic Oil Control Powder Mist!
Torriden is a brand that’s known for using key ingredients, harnessing their goodness and putting them into products that are specifically targeted for specific skin needs. Treating skin sensitivities and irritations are their specialty, and the Banchic Oil Control Powder Mist is no exception! This handy product claims to mattify the skin and remove shine in just 10 seconds, making it a definite must-have especially when it’s hot and humid out.
Don’t be fooled by the compact size of this bottle, it knows how to pack a punch! Made with ingredients like Centella Asiatica, tea tree and chamomile extract, the Banchic Oil Control Powder Mist soothes redness and ensures it stays hydrated while a super finely-milled powder with micro-particles zap the excess oil away. Here’s how to use one of our summer must-haves:
Hold the product about 30cm away from the face
Spritz evenly onto the skin and wait 10 seconds
Ta-da! Matte, shine-free skin!
\ The mist itself is really fine and spritzes onto the skin in an even layer, and almost instantly mattifies the skin. It has a very faint minty scent that when coupled with the mist, feels very refreshing. It really does feel like magic seeing your skin become matte right before your eyes! For our Pixie Syahira who has really oily skin, this is perfect for keeping it under control throughout the day. Check out our live demo video on her down below!

Have you had the chance to try this out? What are some of your hacks to staying cool this summertime? Let us know in the comments below!
This week's Die Hard Fan is Philippines-born based in the UAE so say hello to Sarah Jane! She is a huge fan of G-Dragon and K-drama who stumbled upon Althea's website one day, and now she has added K-beauty to her list of things she's obsessed with! Read on to find out why Althea has been her first choice for all things K-beauty and to see her go-to K-beauty products.
1) Hey, Sarah! Please tell us a little bit about yourself and how you became interested in K-beauty.
Hi, my name is Sarah, 27 years old from the Philippines. I love G-Dragon and K-drama which makes me curious on how can they achieve flawless skin with no visible pores! I was just browsing the internet for where to purchase K-beauty products and found Althea, and wow! When I checked their website I got excited about all they have. I started with one box, and I didn't notice that I was already shopping for more every month!
What I love the most is the Althea boxes, I think I got 8 of them (my favorite is the Wanderlust Box), you'll get 5 or more full-sized products for a very affordable price! My K-beauty journey grows that all my friends started to love it also, I don't have major skin problems but when I started using Korean beauty products, I noticed how my skin is glowing and my friends would tell me that I look like a Korean now! (Giggle!)
2) In your most honest opinion, tell us what really makes Althea special.
Althea is the key to my K-beauty journey! Now, I am more concerned about how to take good care of my skin, especially since I moved to Dubai because the weather is really humid here which makes my skin dry all the time. What's exciting is that they offer different giveaways and freebies, plus you'll get free shipping which is what most of us would prefer when ordering online. They have all the products you need that are authentic with the best prices ever!
What I love the most about Althea is the way they interact with their customers. They respond through Instagram, Facebook, and e-mail, and they are always ready to assist us with all our concerns. And I love it whenever they like my posts or put comments on them! Two thumbs up!!
3) If you could bring 5 beauty items to travel with, what would they be and why?
Hey Altheans, we hope you’ve been having a blast and enjoying the festivities with us so far this month, and even took advantages of the promos we’ve been having throughout the weeks! Our birthday month wouldn’t be complete without some limited edition boxes, and this year’s theme is the Birthday Book to symbolize all the good times we’ve had together. We’ve even included miniature collectible Birthday Books in qualifying orders that are perfect for decorations, selfie opportunities and even joining our biggest Fly Me To Korea contest yet!
These adorable miniature DIY Birthday Boxes come in cards that are ready to assemble in 3 sizes to mimic our life-sized ones: small, medium and XL. They come in a girly pink, a fresh dusty blue and a lush lavender. Here’s how you can fix up your own!
Step 1: Carefully tear along the cut line.
Step 2: Fold inwards according to the lines on the cut out.
Step 3: Ensure the box is the right way (solid colour with Hello Beautiful on the inside), and fold in the flaps as shown above.
Step 4: Close the lid of the box, tucking in the extra flaps into the opening slits, and TA-DA! It’s complete!
Super simple right? Just in case you didn’t catch that, don’t worry, we’ve got a demonstration for you down below!
These little boxes are a must-have if you’re planning to join our Fly Me To Korea contest (or if you’re a die-hard Althean!). We’ve been getting some really cool submissions on Instagram so far, but we’d love to see more so keep sending them in for a chance to win!
Be quick! These miniatures are available for all qualifying orders during our birthday celebration period and you can get them by shopping on Althea's site. We hope you find this little guide helpful, and we can't wait to see all your creative entries on Instagram (remember to tag us @AltheaKorea #AltheaKorea #AltheaTurns3)! Let us know what you think should be our birthday theme for next year in the comments down below!
Fruits are essentially healthy dessert, and are packed with a burst of flavor coupled with nutrients and vitamins to keep your body healthy. They're also fantastic for the skin and make gorgeous gift arrangements that could really be the way to send your love and care to a cherished one. We've come up with a fruit basket featuring some of our favorite fruit-inspired products (think of it as our gift to you) to really elevate your skincare game. Here is the beauty breakdown on some of our yummiest skin treats yet!
Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants to keep the skin looking youthful and healthy. This adorably packaged ampoule is chuck full of the magic stuff, using a complex made out of 6 berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, barberry and wolfberry) to brighten and moisturize dull, dry skin. We love the soft tip that dispenses just the right amount of product so we don’t have to worry about product wastage.
Your favorite breakfast fruit makes a comeback with this delightfully sudsy wonder. Infused with real grapefruit and milk protein extracts, this soap gently removes dead skin cells, impurities and dirt from the skin and instead supplies it with moisture and nutrients. Its rich lather also helps to soften callused, hard skin and giving the complexion a refreshing boost. Try this soap with a bubble maker for an even thicker foam!
Raspberries are a mix of deliciously sweet and tart flavours that burst in the mouth! Have you ever thought about using these berries for your luscious locks? This hair treatment is a vinegar rinse that softens, strengthens and repairs your hair from within, giving you shiny, healthy strands that are free from split ends and tangles. Worried about a vinegary smell? Don’t! This product smells like sweet berries and will leave a lingering pleasant scent on your hair, we promise!
You know what they say: an apple a day keeps dirt and impurities at day. Thanks to apple seed oil that purifies and moisturizes the skin, these wipes are great for freshening up your face any time of the day. They also help to gently slough away dead skin cells for a fresh and supple complexion. making this especially great for those with a hectic lifestyle or extra lazy days.
Another fruit-packed concentrate and resident Mermaid favorite, this luxurious bottle is filled with a concentrate containing Damask rose extract and a phyto-red complex comprising of an array of fruits including pomegranate, raspberry, cloudberry, blueberry, acai berry and goji berry extracts. It has a lightweight but nourishing texture that absorbs into the skin without stickiness. As it penetrates into the layers of the skin, it helps to moisturize from within, plumping up fine lines and giving the skin a radiant glow.
Sure, sea buckthorn isn’t really a fruit you think of when you’re planning for a picnic, but hear us out. These little fruits are packed with vitamins, and is the star ingredient of this cream. Containing vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K and P, this product moisturizes, brightens, lifts, firms, soothes and protects for a well-rounded complexion. You'll want to incorporate this fruit into both your beauty regimes and grocery list too!
Speaking of vitamins, this serum combines vitamin C with green tea to effectively brighten dark spots. With a lightweight, fast-absorbing formula, this brightening serum penetrates into the layers of the skin, offering hydration and evening out the skin tone for a radiant, happy complexion. It doesn’t hurt that this concentrate also has a fresh, citrusy scent to really rejuvenate the senses, making it great for adding to a night time routine after a long day.
Feeling fresh yet? We love how fruity fun these products are! You can find these and other fresh picks on Althea's site. Have you tried any of the ones mentioned above? What are some of your summer fruity must-haves? Let us know in the comments down below! Have a magical day! xx Syd Althea's Mermaid
Did you think we would stop at one interview? Nah, hun. We are featuring another Die Hard Fan of Althea's and she goes by the name Samantha Chong! This week's Die Hard Fan landed on the world of K-beauty in 2013 and has been happily 'stranded' here with the rest of us K-beauty enthusiasts. Keep reading to find out more about her journey in the K-beauty world.
1) Hi, Samantha! Please tell us a little bit about yourself and how you became interested in K-beauty.
I go by @scyriuscilfero on Instagram, and I love reviewing and testing out new products! I'm obsessed with makeup and skincare, and I have been obsessing over K-beauty since 2013! Thereafter, I started looking more into it and trying out more and more. The greatest draw of K-beauty is their ingredients and super affordable prices! I have terribly sensitive skin and I am acne-prone. I do enjoy reading ingredient lists (Science background, hehe) and I am relieved that a lot of Korean beauty products do not include ingredients that are harmful or irritating to the skin.
2) In your most honest opinion, tell us what really makes Althea special.
I actually discovered Althea on Instagram and began buying boxes from them. I love how free shipping is available without spending an exorbitant amount. The boxes were seriously my favourite thing and I'm hoping they will be brought back! I was able to get specially curated boxes with amazing products at affordable prices. The boxes were also usually curated around a certain skin concern (eg. Soothe Our Skin) or brand (eg. Onsameein). These boxes, as well as Althea's platform, has helped me to discover brands that I would otherwise not be exposed to by other online shops that only focus on hyped products. Products I find featured on my IG page are also readily available on Althea!
3) From all the years of using K-beauty products, what is the one beauty product you trust?
Son and Park Beauty Water!
It's actually my holy grail toner because it's very hydrating and effective in providing light exfoliation. It keeps my skin clear and it removes any makeup residue that my cleansing routine may have missed. For its price, it comes in a large bottle (340ml) and I have found it to be more effective in soothing and hydrating my sensitive skin than some high-end toners out there.
I use it in the morning and at night, and in a pinch, it's able to remove sunscreen too! I have dry, dehydrated and very sensitive skin and this does not irritate me at all. It contains quite a few plant oils and rose and lavender water that are both soothing and hydrating! I always keep backups of it because I'm terribly afraid to be without it! I would totally recommend this toner and I always do when asked about my holy grail products or product recommendations!
It's so great to hear about your K-beauty journey from you, Samantha! We truly appreciate your love and support.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know we’ve been celebrating Althea’s 3rd birthday! In our biggest contest yet, we’re giving away a round trip to Korea plus some fun activities for you to do while you’re there. One of our main highlights is a tour with Oh My Oppa, a local touring company that gives you an education, fun tour of some of the highlights in Seoul. But that’s not the best part of it, you’ll be accompanied with a handsome Oppa of your choice!
Ah, so you’ve found yourself in Korea and you’re planning to live out your K-drama dream. What better way than to discover the gorgeous land than with a handsome “big brother” Oppa by your side, giving you a tour like a local? They’ve got a rough pre-planned itinerary that allows you to pick them based on the location you’d like to visit and how you’d like to spend your time (you can even contact them to arrange a customized tour). We’ve picked out some of our favorite Oppas and their activity highlights, and we’ve paired them up with must-have beauty items from Althea.
If you’re down to try all the exotic and delicious food Seoul has to offer, William Oppa is the one for you! His tour includes a walk around Gwangjang Market, a traditional market and haven for Korean street food including DdukBboki, Kimbap and even the famous moving octopus dish (try if you dare!). After stuffing yourselves full, you’ll enjoy a relaxing stroll down cheonggyecheon stream, a pretty place to soak in the culture and a popular hotspot for couples.
Beauty must-have: Make sure you look your best with a longwear lip tint that doesn’t fade even after all the yummy food! The Saem’s Saemmul Water Candy Tint is pigmented and lasts on the lips, plus it’s handy size means it’s perfect for popping into your purse for easy touch-ups!
If you’re down for a light and easy day with good company, take a leisurely ride along the Han River with Kihyun Oppa. Enjoy the breeze and soak in the calming scenery of the river as you paddle along, perfect for those of us looking to have a K-drama moment! He’ll also be bringing you for some light eats, the perfect way to end the day.
Beauty must-have: If you’re going to be riding outdoors under the sun, you’ll definitely want to pack a good sunscreen for your tip. Dr. Frog's Intensive Calming Sun Block is great for all skin types and leaves the skin feeling cool and refreshed when applied. It also has an SPF of 50+, PA+++ and contains soothing ingredients for a healthy, protected complexion.
Shop till you drop with Jin Oppa! He knows the ropes and places, and he’ll take you around Namdaemun market. From clothing to little knick knacks and souvenirs for your friends and family, there’s bound to be something for everyone. You can even ask Jin Oppa what are some of his tips and tricks to getting a good bargain!
Beauty must-have: Keep your complexion fresh and shine-free when you’re picking out what to bring home with you. Having a blotting pact like Aritaum's Pore Master Sebum Control Pact ensures you'll look and feel great even when you're out bargain hunting.
Thinking of taking the traditional route? Be enthralled by Korea’s traditions in architecture, scenery and even clothes with Aiden Oppa. Follow him down history lane with Hue Oppa as you explore the Gyeongbokgung Palace full of culture and traditions, soaking in the beauty of olden Korea. You’ll even get the chance to dress up in an old-fashion hanbok, perfect for that selfie opportunity!
Beauty must-have: Being out and about can dry out the skin, so keep a face mist on hand so you can spritz the heat and dryness away! Refresh your complexion with Laneige’s Water Bank Hydro Mist to keep your skin looking its best. For an extra dewy glow in pictures, spray some on before snapping away.
All these and other gorgeous Oppas are awaiting! Find out how you can win a trip to Korea to get your very own tour with one of the Oh My Oppa guys here. All the products mentioned can be found at Althea's site, so be sure to check that out too. Which one of the Oh My Oppa guys is your favorite? What will be your must-have beauty item during a trip like this? Let us know in the comments below!
Our fans are our biggest asset and as a token of appreciation, we are featuring our biggest Die Hard Fans this month to celebrate Althea's 3rd birthday! Starting off with Renee Alexis: she is an avid writer who enjoys books, coffee breaks, travelling, and Korean skincare products! Read on to find out how she became a huge K-beauty lover with Althea since December 2016!
1) Hey, Renee! Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you became interested in K-beauty. Hello, my name is Renee Alexis. I am a blogger from the Philippines who loves books, food, and adventure. I came across a friend's post in Instagram sharing her haul from Althea and I was instantly curious about it because the things she bought were super cute! I opened Althea's website and was immediately engrossed by all the wonderful things I saw with my eyes.
From that day on, I would always go to Althea's website to go through what must have been hundreds of pages about all the new products I was seeing. What enticed me more were the lovely curated boxes they had back then that comes with a really great price! I would then go to YouTube to search for more info and video reviews on those products. Until finally after just days of browsing Althea's website and watching YouTube videos, I hauled so many products that I received 4 Let it Snow boxes after Christmas!
That was how I jump-started my K-beauty journey. Through Althea's blog and social media sites, I got to know new products. Through YouTube and K-beauty enthusiasts, I developed a new love and obsession that to this day, I am still very much addicted to. My skin has been through the worst breakout and Korean products have really helped me get past them. I got most of my products from Althea and if I hadn't discovered Althea, I think I wouldn't be into K-beauty this much.
2) In your most honest opinion, tell us what really makes Althea special. Althea fuels my love for K-beauty. This is the site where I can get authentic products to satisfy my K-beauty craving with reasonable prices and free shipping(!!!). And let's face it, that's what we all look for when we shop for practicality's sake, haha!
Special mention to Althea's curated boxes, they were what I really spend my money on because I've discovered products I got to love by not spending a fortune. Those boxes allowed me to discover and try out new products that I wouldn't even think of purchasing. Oh, how I miss those kinds of boxes...
Another factor I love about Althea and its team is that they appreciate the effort their customers put into the unboxing and review blog/vlog posts they do by recognizing them. I'm just a small-time blogger and sharing my posts in your Facebook page really, really means a lot to me, so thank you so much for that.
Althea differs from other K-beauty sites because they value their customers. They interact with us, whether it's through replying to Facebook comments and messages or engaging on Instagram by liking tagged photos and viewing tagged stories. And also, I just have to say that I enjoy watching every time Eros and Sydney do Althea's IG stories, they have a special place in my heart. ^_^
3) If you could bring 5 beauty items to travel with, what would they be and why?
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel This is my favorite soothing gel slash moisturizer of all time. It is that good!
Etude House Soon Jung PH 5.5 Relief Toner
Hands down one of my favorite gentle toners to soothe irritated and sensitive skin!
Son & Park Beauty Water
I love how this product can be used as a cleansing water, a toner, and a refreshing mist. I love its scent and how it contains skin-loving ingredients that don't irritate my acne-prone skin at all!
Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Serum
Loving this one because it contains vitamin C and other antioxidants. I love how its an oil and an essence in one!
Bare Essentials Fixer Cream
Such a rich cream that does wonders to my skin! The moisturizing and plumping effects it does to my skin is priceless, I love this product! Awesome! Thank you so much, Renee, for your love and support!

We’re so psyched to celebrate #AltheaTurns3 with you and hope that you guys have a blast with us this July. Thank you Altheans for continuously giving us your support, faith and love, and can't wait to hustle and work hard to give you guys all the love we can!
If you're thinking about going under the needle to get some juicy, plump lips, we might just have the solution for you! We love a gorgeous lipstick or two, and we’ll never say no to a perfectly polished pout. As self-proclaimed lipstick junkies, we knew we just had to try out Nakeup Face’s C-Cup Lip Tox-Tick lipsticks when it landed on the shores of Althealand. These are some lippies that look as good in the tube as they do on your face! Here’s the beauty breakdown on these gorgeous tubes.
Nakeup Face is known for their effortless style and beauty, creating looks with makeup that give your skin and confidence a little boost. The result is a naturally flawless look without cakiness. These C-Cup Lip Tox-Tick (man, that’s a mouthful!) lipsticks gently plump up your lips, making them gorgeously juicy looking while giving you a saturated swipe of colour. Made with a special ingredient they call “volufilne”, these special lippies smooth over wrinkles and fine lines, plumping them up from within. They also contain rosehip and grapeseed oils to deeply moisturize and nourish the lips, giving the final look a pretty sheen.
There are 5 gorgeous to choose from to suit just about any look. Here are the swatches!
#1 - Kiss Mark
A classic warm red that’s perfect for all occasions
A girly, light pink, perfect for livening up the complexion
#3 - Stealer
A fun coral shade with a tinge of orange
#4 - Nude Beach
A nude with warm pink undertones
#5 - Stalker
An everyday brick pink shade, MLBB
These lippies glide onto the lips like a dream, enveloping them in a burst of colour with an almost glossy finish. After a couple of seconds, they start to tingle (that’s the plumping formula doing its work) and plump your lips ever so slightly. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t irritate the lips, but instead leaves behind a cooling feeling. And can we just take a moment to appreciate the amazing packaging? It’s glittery goodness’ll make anybody feel like a superstar!
If you couldn’t tell from the above information, we absolutely adored the Nakeup Face C-Cup Lip Tox-Tick lipsticks and we’d gladly invite them back for another party on our faces. You can find these beauties and other Nakeup Face products on Althea’s site, so be sure to check them out! What do you guys think about these lippies?
