Hello, my lovely friends!
Are you ready for a little unboxing post? Don’t think I’ve done that in a while and it was about time I did one! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I received a beautiful box, full of goodies from Althea.
Althea is the perfect website to visit if you love Korean beauty and skincare as much as I do! They have a wide range of products and I also found a few of my favourite brands there: Klairs, Innisfree, Benton, Mizon and many, many others. The website is very well structured and it’s super easy to place an order.
If you spend more than $50 on the website, you qualify for free shipping, which is totally awesome, but take in consideration that you will have to pay taxes. If you really want your products super fast, you can choose the special delivery which will bring your package in 5 days or so. How awesome is that?
Another thing that I liked at this site is the reward system that they have. For every order that you place, you get points that you can save and later use to place another order. They also have discounts when you sign up on the site, so keep an eye for that too, because you can save some money and buy more goodies.
Now, let’s talk about the goodies that I bought. As I mentioned in the beginning, I was super happy to see one of my favourite brands on the site, Klairs. Why do I love their products so much? Well, they are specially created for sensitive skin (which I have) and everything that I tried from them was simply amazing and worked wonders on my skin.
Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream – This is the product that I wanted the most from Klairs. It’s an intensive soothing cream designed for irritated skin. Since my skin has been really irritated lately and acting up in the worst way possible, I really hope that this cream will be my saviour.
Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser – I read a lot of good reviews for this product and I wanted to give it a try. It promises to deeply clean and condition the skin without leaving that tightening feeling on the face. I know that it has PH5 which is perfect, so I’m really looking forward to using it.
Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil – This claims to be a “supple and lightweight cleansing oil”, which cleans skin in a gentle manner and is moisturising, too. The main ingredients are Black Currant Seed Oil, Soybean Oil, Sesame Seed Oil and Jojoba Oil.
Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop – I wanted a product that will help me with all the scars I have on my face and with the brown spots caused by sun exposure. I know Vitamin C is known for its brightening characteristics, so this serum seemed like the safest choice for my sensitive skin. My hopes are really high, so fingers crossed.
Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask – This mask should be in the category ” Instagram made me buy it”. I saw many good reviews for it on Instagram, so I decided to give it a try myself. I used it once since I receive it and I can say that it did leave my skin super soft, but no other improvements so far. I will test it some more and come back with a full review for it.
Sheet masks from Dr Jart+, Klairs, A’Pieu & Purederm – I love sheet masks and I believe that you can never have too many of them! After a busy day, it’s a real treat for my skin and for me to put on a sheet mask and relax. Besides that Klairs mask, that I tried before, all the other masks are new and I can’t wait to use them.
These are my picks from Althea. Of course, I have many other products on my wishlist, but for the moment I’m taking it slow because I need to go back to basics and give my skin time to recover. What are your KBeauty picks? Any products that you will recommend me to try?
