Blog #53: How To: Althea PH Shopping Guide

Beauties, it comes as no surprise that I'm a K-Beauty addict. Ever since I've been introduced to Korean brands via KPOP, I've turned away from Western cosmetics and swore allegiance to the nation of beauty. And why not? I've noticed a drastic change in my skin over the course of using only Korean make-up and skin care products and I can't be any happier.

Yes, K-Beauty brands has crossed over the Asian market for quite awhile now and Philippines (my country) has been one of the more fortunate countries to house several Korean beauty brands like Etude House, Tony Moly, Laneige and Nature Republic. But being the crazed fanatic that I am, I still yearn for other harder to find brands that are sadly not available here like Hera, Iope, Sulwhasoo, Innisfree and Mamonde.

In comes Althea Philippines. Yes, darlings, Althea Korea already launched its online shopping site dedicated to all the fab Pinays who love to indulge in Korean cosmetics. Introducing Althea Philippines:
