My shopping experience and review!

I have been receiving a lot of raves about Korean makeup and beauty products from beauty blogger friends to my friends who always visit Korea. 
I am not really a makeup person but somehow I got acquainted with some makeup products and brands. I now have my favorites. More than high pigmentation and long-wearing makeup,  I am more concerned about skin care products. 
Thankfully, there’s an online shop that carries Korean makeup and skin care products. Althea Korea is a beauty eCommerce site that offers authentic Korean beauty products at affordable prices. It was founded in June 2015 by CEO Frank Kang, who realized that despite the increasing demand for Korean products all over the world, there wasn’t a single one-stop K-Beauty shopping destination that is within reach. The better news, Althea Korea recently launched its Philippines website and now ships to Manila from Korea. 
The site offers authentic Korean makeup and skincare selections at the guaranteed best price and unconditional returns. You even get free shipping for orders worth Php 1,500. 
My Althea Korea Shopping Experience
I always get excited whenever I visit a new online store. There are so much selection to choose from and I can easily navigate through categories. 
I added several items on my cart which are mostly for managing my combination skin condition and pore tightening products. Interestingly, there are also fun and unique products in Althea Korea. I added in my cart just because they are fun and they make me curious.

I love that the delivery address field locates your exact address (just like when you are shopping in a US based site). It ensures that the delivery will be sent on time and in the correct address. 
The site also supports Paypal payment which is more secured. 
After a week, I received a call from Althea Philippines logistics team confirming my address and landmark. They delivered my stuff right after. I love that I no longer need to go to the Postal Office to claim my stuff and pay for taxes and fees.
