Shopping: #AltheaTurns1 Birthday Celebration

What's up, guys! I'm sorry for disappearing, it's almost 3 weeks into July and I'm just only penning my first post haha. The reason is because I've been super busy this month with meeting my friends who are back for Summer break, travelling (albeit locally), and I also fell sick twice.. Now that I'm back, it's only right that I share some deals with you! Yes, it's about Althea's 1st birthday celebration!

Some of you may have heard of Althea from my previous post here. I can't believe it's been one year since their inception! Time really flies. For their birthday on 20th July till end of this month, Althea is having a special celebration to reward their customers. One of the surprises in store is this Limited Edition Pink Birthday Box to store your goodies! It comes in a darker shade of pink for the bigger sized box as well, complete with the gold "Happy Birthday" lettering at the side of the box. Pretty, huh? 

This box is available for all orders placed on 20th July onwards. Along with the birthday box, you'll be able to receive this special DIY Party Kit too! It contains a DIY Party Hat and Balloon Kit. However, do note that this kit is while stocks last. You can use the cutouts given to customise your hat. What's this for, you ask? Well, you can use it to take part in the #AltheaTurns1 Instagram Contest! Simply snap a selfie with your hat to wish Althea a Happy Birthday, along with the hashtag #AltheaTurns1 to win amazing prizes worth KRW10,000,000 such as Macbook Air, iPad Air 2, iPhone 6S, Galaxy S6 Edge, Canon EOS M10 Selfie Camera, Althea credits and beauty hampers! Giveaway ends on 15/8/2016, so you still have plenty of time to take part! 

Other than that, Free Goodies (full sized beauty products) will be given to the first 1,500 shoppers too. Also, look forward to their Birthday Giveaway whereby when you can pick any 3 Top Sellers to get 100% Rebate! The rebate will be credited into your account.

In case you're wondering what I bought, here are my hauls. It's a very small haul, but I'm pretty pleased with it. First off, I got the WondeRuci Cacao Brightening Mask. I've been eyeing the Fresh Cocoa Body Exfoliant, but since it's so costly, I thought I'd settle for a dupe first hehe. I also got some cosmetics namely the Missha Under Eye Brightener since I've run out of concealer and the RiRe Lip Powder in #Sugar Rose because I've seen a YouTuber review this lip powder (yes, powder!) before and thought it was quite interesting.

Ok, you guys know that I've always been honest with you when it comes to reviews and what not, right? I have to say that while I really like that Althea offers such great prizes on their products, I did encounter something unfortunate along the way when I was shopping for this haul. My haul was supposed to consist of the Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Cleansing Mousse as well, the one item I was really looking forward to receiving, but due to fulfilment issues, it was left out of my parcel. So I contacted Althea's customer service to resend my item and I was told that it would take 10 days for the parcel to arrive plus a RM5 credit reimbursement. Well, I already waited 10 days for my parcel to arrive from Korea, what's another 10 days right? Let's hope it arrives soon!

I've shopped with Althea many times before but this is the first time that I've encountered any issues, so I'm sharing them with you. Guess I'm just unlucky this time :( Kudos to the customer service team for handling the situation politely and promptly! With that being said, Korean beauty lovers should consider shopping with Althea because you can get authentic Korean goodies at unbelievable prices!

Happy Birthday once again, Althea! <3
