Beauty: Unboxing [Althea Box] Base Makeup Box (Christmas Edition)

If you’re into beauty, then you’re no stranger to Althea Malaysia. I’ve been introduced to them since their inception a year and a half ago until now, and it’s amazing how rapidly they’re growing! One of the biggest launch they have recently is their specially curated BEAUTY BOXES. Some may say that the Beauty Box or Beauty Bag trend is dying but I don’t think that’ll happen anytime soon with Althea. Why?

Because unlike other brands in the market, the Althea Box is not based on monthly subscriptions. Instead, there are 3 themed boxes that are specially curated by Althea Korean Team back in Seoul, launched monthly for you to choose from. If something catches your eye, get it! If not, you are not obliged to since there is no monthly fee incurred. What I am trying to say is, the Althea Box is a fun way to try new products as and when you like, without having to break the bank because you can get an upfront look on what you will be getting before you decide to purchase the box, no surprises. What’s more, every single product is FULL-SIZED! Wait for the delivery between 10 - 15 working days and get ready to unbox your haul.

This might be a little late, but I was sent the Christmas Edition [Althea Box] BaseMakeup Box to try previously. The purpose of this beauty box was to give you perfectly natural celebrity base makeup and each product was curated by makeup artists! I actually picked the Glitter Box, but was sent this instead, no idea why XD But it’s fine!
Note: Because each month’s theme is different, you may not get your hands on this exact beauty box that I have, but you can rest assured that every single thematic box from Althea is just as great! Let’s take a look at what I received, shall we?

The first thing in the box is this super cute and useful Witch’s Pouch Stripe Makeup Pouch! You can put all your new makeup in the pouch, or utilize that one-of-a-kind and good quality Althea box that you’ll get. Mine was the blue box with Christmas design and snowflakes. I love collecting Althea boxes :p In this box, there’s also a Christmas postcard that consists of an exclusive Althea discount code and a little note from Althea’s CEO.

Next up are these 2 Mamonde Flower Essential Masks (Rose Moisturising). I’ve tried this mask before and I know how good it is, so I was pleasantly surprised to receive such good quality masks in this box. It’s the perfect item to prep your face before you apply any makeup.

What is the first item to put on your face before you proceed with makeup? Sunblock, of course! I got this Secretkey Natural Daily Pure Sunstick and it’s proved useful during travels when you can just bring this mini stick around in your handbag for reapplication. It has SPF50+/PA+++ for maximum sun protection in our hot country.

Next up is of course, primer. This Milkydress Trill Beige Silky Velvet Primer will help to cover uneven skin, pores, wrinkles and fine line to make the face smooth & even. It also increases makeup adhesion and sustainability.

Now I’m REALLY impressed with this beauty box. They did not give one Aritaum Real Ampoule Colour Corrector, but ALL THREE to really help you achieve flawless skin. There’s the Green Beige one to correct redness, Purple Beige to reduce dullness and Pink Beige to cover up dark circles. I love these so much!

Are you a foundation or BB Cushion kinda girl? With this box, you don’t have to pick sides because there’s BOTH! This Witch’s Pouch Triplus Cover Glow Foundation with SPF50 PA+++ gives you full coverage while leaving a glowing, dewy finish. This is what most people strive for with Korean makeup, isn’t it? Unfortunately, I received shade #23 which is too dark for me so I’ve yet to try this foundation..

This is a BB Cushion but the shape is unlike those conventional round cushions. Isn’t it cool? I have an unhealthy obsession for BB Cushions cos they’re so convenient so I’m really happy to add another cushion to my insane collection. The A:Concept All-in-One Brightening A:Cushion is supposed to… Again, I received shade #23 which is just a little too dark for me so I might give this to my sister to try.

The last step in creating your flawless skin is to put on concealer. Another A:Concept product, the A:Concept A: Concealer is an adorable stick concealer that you can bring it with you anywhere. This concealer is truly creamy and I love the rounded crayon tip for quick touch-ups.

Are you as impressed as I am? I mean, 11 items for only RM121! I did a quick calculation and found that this box is originally worth over RM200! /jaw drop If you wish to get your hands on more Althea Beauty Boxes, make sure you stalk their website regularly as they release a new themed box quite frequently. But beware, you might just get addicted to this box :p Grab them fast too as only limited amount are available!

Price: RM121.00
