Althea is an online shop for your K-Beauty needs. Their online store has thousands of authentic Korean skincare and makeup products. They offer the latest and hottest K-Beauty products so you won’t have to fly to Korea just to purchase them, and did I mention they offer FREE shipping?

Last July, Althea sent me their featured Beauty Box. It got me really excited because I always planned of getting one, I’m just really waiting for the perfect Beauty Box that will suite my needs. Althea Beauty Box is a collection of products specially curated to for a specific beauty or skincare needs. These are limited edition boxes that will make you save money. I tell you, you need to be quick when ordering an Althea Beauty Box because they sell out really fast.

Althea sent me their Soothe Our Skins (SOS) Box which contains products that will help repair and soothe irritated skin. I’ve been getting a lot of redness on my face lately because of the bipolar weather in the Philippines. The products inside Althea SOS Box came to the rescue and just in time. The Althea SOS Box only cost Php1,280, but if you will purchase the products inside the beauty box individually, it will cost you Php3,820. That’s a 66% discount!

What’s Inside Althea SOS Box?

Tonymoly The Chok Chok Green Tea No-wash Cleansing Water

I’ve been planning on purchasing a cleansing water and I’m glad this came in the box. I heard cleansing waters really helps in lifting makeup from our skin. Yes, I wear makeup once in a while specially during events or shoots.

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The Claims:

Tonymoly The Chok Chok Green Tea No-wash Cleansing Water is a multi-use skincare and cleanser infused with fermented green tea extracts to remove skin impurities and provide gentle hydration. It also claims that after using this product, you can skip washing your face.

How to Use:

Apply 4 to 6 drops on a cotton pad and wipe it all over your face until makeup is removed from your skin.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

I’ve been using this product regularly and it became an instant favorite. The consistency of the product is just like water but I can tell that it has some extra hydrating property. After using this product, my skin doesn’t feel dry at all, and it leaves a cooling effect which is very refreshing and soothing on the skin. I also love the lemon tea scent too which is very relaxing.

This product is true to its claim in cleaning the skin without the need of washing because it really removes makeup and dirt in a single wipe. I actually use this product when I’m too tired to wash my face. Of course, you can also wash your face after for deep cleansing.

Real Skin Healthy Vinegar Skin Toner Makgeoli

I can’t live without toner. After cleansing my face, I always apply toner to bring back or lock the moisture in my skin.

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The Claims:

Real Skin Healthy Vinegar Skin Toner Makgeoli is made with fermented rice extract that nourishes and soothe irritate skin. It has a pH 5.5 acidity for balanced pH level skin, it tightens pores and exfoliates skin, and contains vitamins, minerals and moisturizing ingredients.

How to Use:

When I use a toner, I usually pour a small amount on my palm and pat it all over my face. Some uses a cotton pad which I think wastes products since some amount is being absorbed by the cotton pad. This technique though helps in extra cleansing and exfoliation of the skin.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

Since this product says vinegar on its label, I kinda expected that it smells like one, but I’m glad it did not. It actually has this very light creamy-florally scent. This product is super hydrating, leaving my skin super soft and supple after application. This toner also absorbed by the skin really fast.

The most significant result of this product is that it really minimized my pores. I have large pores on the side of my nose and I noticed that those were minimized after using this products for few weeks.

I’m not really sure about the exfoliating effect of this product though since I just pat it all over my face.

Etude House Sweet Pudding Tone-up Cream Moisture

I’m not really a fan of cream moisturizers because I have an oily skin but when I tried this product, I got obsessed!

Etude House Sweet Pudding Tone-up Cream Moisture is perfect for people with sensitive skin. The moisturizing tone-up cream makes skin looks clear and bright by restoring skin’s oil and moisture balance with moisture-rich formula.

How to Use:

Apply small amount of the product on the four corners of your face and spread it all over.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The texture of this product is like a thick milk but it’s very easy to spread and apply on the face.

I have uneven skin tone on my face and some redness but this product works like magic! It really brightens and evens out my skin tone making it easier to apply makeup afterwards. This product is also moisturizing leaving my skin really soft and supple. Another thing I love about this product is that I don’t get super oily like other moisturizers. I actually use this everyday after putting on sunscreen.

Skinfood Fresh Apple Cooling Gel

I’m crazy over Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel and Skinfood Fresh Apple Cooling Gel is a good option to try too.

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The Claims:

Skinfood Fresh Apple Cooling Gel cools down and hydrates irritated or dried out skin. Revitalizes skin with cooling gel containing 90% fresh apple extract. It also claims to control pores.

How to Use:

Apply generous amount on your face. This product can also be used as a substitute for body lotion.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The scent of this product is really like a fresh apple which is very refreshing. The product has watery gel consistency and a little runny compared to Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel.

This product absorbs in the skin really quick leaving it hydrated. It also leaves this mild cooling effect which helps minimize pores.

I only used this product few times on my face because I prefer the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. I used it as a body lotion replacement instead and it works great.

Innisfree Real Peppermint Mask

I currently own a couple of face mask and Innisfree Real Peppermint Mask is good addition to my collection.

Innisfree Real Peppermint Mask is a clay mask that contains refreshing peppermint ingredients for a soothing effect and deep cleansing. This product also hydrates for a soothing finish and helps control excess sebum production.

How to Use:

After cleansing my face, I apply this product all over my face and leave it on for 10-15 mins then wash it afterwards.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

I usually have schedules for my face mask this one I use every Friday. This product is kinda similar to my Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask but it has these granules which I think are peppermint leaves. I love the granules because it helps exfoliate my skin as I rub the product on your face. I also super love the peppermint scent of this product because it’s aromatic and relaxing, it’s like having a facial in a spa.

After washing off the product on my face, it leaves my skin feeling super fresh, clean, supple, and ready for my next skincare routine.

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Sheet Mask

I usually use a sheet mask once a week after applying serum on my face. Hanyul’s sheet mask is a good try.

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The Claims:

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Sheet Mask is infused with baby mugwort extract which calms redness on your face.

How to Use:

Remove the sheet mask from the packaging and put it over your face. The sheet is made of cotton fiber for an easy fit. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes then massage the moisture on your skin after removing the sheet mask for better absorption.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

My first impression of this product is I don’t like the scent which is very hard to explain. It’s tolerable though. What I love about this sheet mask is that it is not as oily as other mask which feels heavy on the face. This sheet mask has very mild formula which is very gentle on the skin. The moisture also absorbs by the skin really fast leaving it really soft and moisturized.

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack (White Pearl & Purple Pearl)

I have watched several lip mask review on Youtube and this is my first time to try one.

Althea Korea Beauty Box

The Claims:

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Packs are enriched with vitamins. This moisturizing lip patch nourishes and repairs dry, cracked lips while you sleep.

How to Use:

Remove the lip mask from the packaging and put it over your lips. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Massage your lips with your finger afterwards for the moisture to be absorbed.

My Review:

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

I’m not really a fan of this product. What I don’t I like about it is that you can’t open your mouth for 10-15 minutes while the product is doing its job. I also didn’t notice any significant effect on my lips. It just felt like I applied lip balm on my lips after removing the lip mask. I also don’t like the taste which is kinda bitter.

Makonde AC Balance Spot Patch

I do get breakouts once in a while and acne patches really does magic. I’m glad Althea SOS Box contains this product because I only have two patches left from the product I bought.

The Claims:

Makonde AC Balance Spot Patch is a transparent film-type spot patch that covers and soothes breakouts. Its soothing ingredients calms areas of concern on the skin all day.

How to Use:

Apply transparent film on top of breakouts.

My Review:

Althea Korea Beauty Box

What I love about Mamonde AC Balance Spot Patch is it’s very thin and it’s almost invisible when you apply it on your pimple spot. This is way better to the acne patches that I currently owned. I like using acne spot because it minimize inflamed pimple and protects it from dirt when you going out during the day. I also use it overnight and to dry my pimple.

Conclusion

Overall, I’m very happy with the products inside Althea S.O.S. Box. The products were true to their claims that they are soothing and moisturizing. The products are really perfect for people with irritated skin. I really recommending purchasing an Althea Beauty Box because it doesn’t only saves you lots of money but it also helps you address your beauty needs.
