Althea Korea, The K-Beauty Mecca

I am sure I don't need to walk you all through the mechanics of shopping online because most sites are the same: you sign up for an account, you add things to your cart and you check out. As simple as that.

So why am I doing this today? Because this new kid on the block, Althea Korea, is the whole package!

Free shipping
Now how rare is this: free international shipping! Yes, for purchases over RM 150 but that is easy enough to reach right?

Authenticity guarantee
As a promise that their merchandises are only sourced from reputable suppliers, Althea Korea will refund 200% of the purchase price if you do receive a knockoff.

Should you purchase an item at a better price than what is offered on Althea Korea, please email them at and their team will do their best to match it for you.

Return policy
Althea Korea allows its customers to return merchandise for any reason up to 30 days after the arrival date and receive a credit to their accounts.

Not too shabby right? And to make their Grand Opening bigger and better, they are offering 대박 (jackpot) deals: Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Gel for RM 1, Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask at RM 0 (not a typing error), and also a 1+1 Laneige Water Sleeping Mask promotion!

I was given RM 150 to fund my shopping experience but I immediately topped up with my own money when I saw the listing for IOPE's Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning. This baby has a RSP of ₩ 60,000 (≈ RM 201) and it only costs RM 161 on the site! The other products are going for unbelievable prices too - the whole place is practically temptation incarnate.

My order took 3 business days to arrive from the shipping date, and even the local mail carrier, Skynet, added to my joy by delivering it to my doorstep in a timely manner. The box arrived without a single dent (which is a testament to its sturdy build) and within it were my products burrowed in wrapping tissue and thick bubble wrap.
