Althea Birthday Celebration Experience

Althea Turns 1Hey there everyone! It’s been a while since I last blogged, because as you know from my previous blog, I am quite busy in college and other agendas. My pimples are actually saying hello to me because I’ve been sleeping late for several consecutive weeks now.

Last month, Althea Philippines celebrated their 1st birthday that started on July 20, 2016 and extended to August 15, 2016. Contests, discounts and giveaways were carried out for all the fabulous Altheans. I got my gift package within just 5 days from Korea.

Here is the list of products that they sent me to be able to join the pink celebration:


I will be making a blog about these Korean products as I have already used some of them since the day I got them. Yeah, I was way too excited!

So how was the celebration if you’re going to ask? Crazy! I get to celebrate online with other bloggers from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and here in the Philippines! That’s not all! Althea held a contest on Instagram and everyone went all in by posting their best photos using the birthday kits included in their pink boxes! I myself had fun not by sharing my photos, but by seeing different pink photo compositions of hundreds of women on Instagram. You can check out how the celebration went by using the hashtag #AltheaTurns1 when searching on your social media accounts.

This is the reason why I love Althea, they organize successful online events where their community can participate and feel as if they are an actual store inviting and hosting events. As you can see, they really want to show how active they are to have bonding moments with their online community and loyal consumers. This is something that may not always see from the  other Korean online shop. I also appreciate how much they value their group of bloggers by giving us all this huge privilege.

Before I forget, one of my future blog posts will be about the latest updates from Althea, what were the changes and improvements for their curious first time clients, so please follow me on my social media accounts to get instant updates when I post a new blog.

Thank you very much to Althea and to my readers, may your eyebrows always look dashing! Oh, don’t forget to leave your comments! See you on my next blog!


Why Shop at Althea Korea Philippines

Why Shop IG

Althea listens to their customers. Remember the MAKE A WISH campaign where we  submit our wishes for products / brands that we want to see on Althea? Malaysia and Singapore had 621 and 144 wishes respectively. In the Philippines they received a total of 1,053 wishes. They want to know what other Korean beauty products do we value the most so they don’t lose us. Isn’t that one of the great ways to value your customers?13087385_1563270777299682_3574435936810542379_n

They try to open different ways to order and deliver their services. They recently announced their Cash-On-Delivery service.

They offer different deals every day! You won’t get bored shopping when you know how much you can maximize your budget. When you use the code: EARN150PTS50 and check what’s on sale or in which category is on sale, you’ll see how much discount you can get before you check out!

They respond to emails, messages and comments all the time. I noticed how active they are in responding on their social media accounts and I myself even experienced it. So if you have issues and inquiries don’t hesitate to contact them, because they will surely reply.

They post delivery delay notices. I appreciate that they accepted the problems of an online shopping business and they are not afraid to show that they do experience reasonable service delays. If you’re not in a rush, why waste time on bragging about the delivery delay when you know for a fact that they are reasonable and they apologized.


Althea follows Korean and Philippine calendar holidays. We get to enjoy the best of both worlds. When Korea celebrates Philippines also celebrates! In fact, having these two calendars makes us feel more connected to them and their culture.

Althea knows how to hype! Everybody went crazy when they announced a contest where you and your friend can win ₱10,000.00 worth of shopping credit just by referring friends! The community had so much fun and very noisy! Oh, 2 lucky ladies already won! So let’s wait for the next hype!

They give back to their community with a twist. Have you heard of the Althea Korea Pink Box Show Off where you post your haul on your social media accounts and one winner monthly will get picked to receive ₱250.00 credit? Isn’t it nice to shop, then take pride on what you just bought and get the chance to win something back? Besides, everyone wants to share something on their social media accounts so sharing a haul is effortless right?


They know their target market. They focused solely on Korean beauty products and brands even if they can carry out other brands. Now when you need to shop for Korean skin care products, they will automatically be on your list and you know exactly where to find them. They also know how we can enjoy being in their community, because they know exactly what we want!

Engagement is important to them. They want us to enjoy scrolling on their social media accounts so they think of ways where we can react and share our thoughts. You know what’s funny? Even community members are helping Althea in answering inquiries on their social media accounts, especially on their Facebook page! We don’t just engage with Althea, we also get to engage with other Altheans because we obviously have the same interest and have something to talk about. We can even make friends with the Altheans in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia!

We get to participate and join activities. Contest and giveaway happen every now and then. Even if we don’t get to win, we enjoy being part of a little something. No wonder why the community exploded!
