hello everyone!!
im back with a post before i jet off to spain!:)
i'll still be posting blog entries in spain cos i have drafts prepped already;)
but for daily updates do visit my insta @etherealpeonies!

for today's post i'll be sharing about Althea!
i received this mysterious box from Althea not long ago!

super excited to open this pretty box!!

 the fine details on the packaging is worth a mention!
i love the mix of classy gold imprintments on the smooth wine red box, very festive and merry indeed!

revealing my box of goodies kindly sent over from the Althea team!!:)
so what is Althea?
Althea is a sg/korea based company that sells korean skincare and makeup products at really really good prices!
they have a wide range of products and brands, including some of my favourites like innisfree, nature republic, the saem, etude house and the face shop!
and by good prices i mean huge discounts!
we all know that in sg there are many korean skincare/makeup flagship stores already, but prices are marked up pretty badly here!
when i saw the prices at Althea, i got a shock (legit)!
some items were going at a whooping 50-80% off!! 

and other than having a wide range of products/brands and being super affordable, the best part is that its 100% authentic as its shipped in from korea directly!:) 

 i'm really thankful to Althea for sending over goodies that i really like and will use!
now lets take a closer look at the contents shall we :)
 primera // watery cream alphine berry moisturizer ($35)
the face shop // rice water bright cleansing foam ($6)
innisfree // creammellow lipstick in latte brown ($13.5)
saemmul // cheek and lip tint in red ($5)
the saem // concealer in shade 1.5 ($5)
 i've swatched the innisfree lipstick and the colour is pigmented and its really moisturizing!
i've always loved innisfree's product and this one is no exception!:)
Christmas is a season of giving, so i chose saemmul's lip and cheek tint and as a gift to my grandaunt!
she has always loved such versatile products, a single item like this can add a pop of colour to her cheeks for a healthy flush of colour, and create rosy lips!
and the saem's concealer is a dupe for my favourite 3CE concealer!
it provides medium to heavy coverage (with multiple layers) and has 3 shades to suit different skin tones!:)
and not to mention, the lip and cheek tint and the concealer only cost $5 each, so worth it!!
 i love the matte white packaging, its simple yet pretty.
 and finally, the primera watery cream moisturizer!
honestly, i've been wanting to get this ever since i saw it at SaSa, but it was priced at a whooping $55! and i felt it was abit pricey :/
so when i saw it on Althea at a super good price of $35, theres no reason not to get it!:)
even though its stated to be a 'cream', its definitely not heavy AT ALL and not sticky as well!
absorbs super well and quickly, i really love this product :)
 now a look at the finer prints, these are all the benefits i've mentioned above!:)

 so go on and do some xmas shopping on Althea and prep your skin to look pretty this xmas!
or you can get affordable yet practical gifts for family and friends!!:)
