Top 10 Althea Must Buy | K-Beauty 101


Althea Christmas Favorites

Just in time for Christmas, I created this "Althea Christmas Wish List" slash my favorite Top 10 K-Beauty products from Althea Korea.



From Althea's Bare Essentials line, the Contour Cleanser works well even for my dry and sensitive skin. It removes my makeup and other impurities really well. It does not have a strong and unpleasant odor and it's non-irritating. 

Most cleansers leave my skin red after washing but this product does not. I have not tried any other cleanser since then. I figured why do I have to change something that works effectively well, right?


Fixer Cream 50g Php 640

After 8 months of using Fixer Cream as my moisturizer, my skin is visibly soft and smooth to touch. The moisture it gives my ageing skin is just enough for me not to break out. I used to spot a pimple or two with my old moisturizer when I applied too much of it but not with this one. 

I apply Fixer Cream especially in the morning and I never forget. I felt I needed the boost especially when I wake up to an air conditioned room. Air conditioning can leave skin dry so an added moisture in the morning is just right. 


Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Rose 150mL Php 550

I have never encountered a product that I love so much than this Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Rose. I have been using it daily not only on my face and neck but on other rough spots like elbows, knees, and also on my inner thighs.

Yes, I figured that since this skin detoxifying mask smooths away roughness, why not use and try it where I can see an improvement, right? Applying it daily on these rough skin surfaces for only 10 seconds is not only showing how I value my skin but also giving it the tender, loving care it needs after all these years. 


Petal Velvet Sunaway 55 mL Php 480

There is nothing not to love about Petal Velvet Sunaway. I used to shy away from sun block because it leaves a sticky feeling. Aside from the white cast it leaves on my skin, most sunblocks just does not work well with my dry, ageing skin. And don't get me started on blending my makeup after sunblock application. Well, my face just looks cakey right after and I have to do my beauty regimen all over. It's time consuming especially for a hands-on mother like me. 

My perspective with sunblock changed when I tried Petal Velvet Sunaway. It's everything that I want in a sunblock. It gives me the sun protection I need when I go out under the sun. It's non-sticky and not heavy, in fact, I don't feel like wearing a sun block at all. 

It has moisturizer and works really well with my BB Cream without getting cakey. I am so happy and I am looking forward to a repurchase once this bottle runs out!


Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream 50 mL Php 560

I have emptied two tubes and I am on my third tube that's about to run out. I have already ordered another tube (my 4th one!) and I can't wait for it to be delivered by Althea Elves. That's how much I love Missha's M Perfect Cover B.B. Cream. For my skin color, I use the shade No. 21. 

This Perfect Cover BB Cream covers the sun spots under my eyes that I accumulated over the years of not using a sun block. It does not feel heavy as with using a foundation. It gives my face that "no makeup" look trend. Best of all, it fills/blurs the fine lines around my eyes so I can still pass for a 30-something beauty blogger instead of a 40-something beauty blogger lol


The Face Shop Designing Eyebrow Pencil 0.3g Php 150
I discovered The Face Shop's Designing Eyebrow Pencil accidentally when my old brand ran out of stock. I have no choice but to try another brand. I am glad to share that this product works well even for a beginners. I combine the shades of Brown and Dark Brown. 

I really like the slanted tip so you can outline your eyebrow beginning from inner to outer side then work your way to the bottom before filling your brows with the pencil. Then using the brush tip at the other end, blend your eyebrows so it looks natural and not too strong. Brush it from bottom to top; inner to outer side. 


Dr. Belmeur Baby & Kids Mild Moisturizer 300 mL Php 800; The First Salt After Rain Toothbrush and Travel Set 50g Php 130 ; Holika Holika Pig Clear Black Head 3-Step 21g Php 80

Most of you think that Althea only carries K-Beauty products for your skin but if you are very thorough like me, you would know that it also have stuff for your babied like this Dr. Belmeur Baby and Kids Mild Moisturizer. My daughter has been using it everyday and it smells good and well, like a baby scent ; )


Another thing you might miss it The First Salt After Rain Toothbrush and Toothpaste Travel Set. It is packed together in a cute, pink pouch that you can carry when you travel. This will go straight in my luggage when we travel this holiday. 


My sister was the first one to use it and she highly recommends Holika Holika's Pig Clear Black Head 3-Step. It works effectively well, she even sends me photos on how to use it. I don't dare to share it with you as the photos are gross hahaha But seeing all the black heads removed makes me eager to try them out one of these days!



Color Deep 18 Color Eyeshadow Palette Pink Holiday Php 630

The first 6 products are what I used on a daily basis. For makeup, I can go out without a lipstick but never without a pair of well-drawn eyebrows. And for an added touch, I keep a neutral palette for my eyelids.

Since this is Christmas, I want to try this Color Deep 18 Color Eyeshadow Palette Pink Holiday. What's great with this palette is that it has 18 gorgeous colors to choose from. Whether you want a smokey look or a daily look, you can never go wrong with it. You can create various look in one palette. I am starting to feel that this is "the one" palette you need for all occasions.

There you have it, my Top 10 K-Beauty Must Haves from Althea. You can purchase all these favorite items and more at Althea.
