Althea Sun Kissed Box Unboxing and Review

Althea Korea Beauty Box

Someone noticed my natural looking healthy glow on my other post, and you know what? It's all thanks to the Althea Korea Sun Kissed Box! Err, well, I mean the products inside of it.

If you want to know how I achieved that sun-kissed look for only PHP 1,340.00, read on!


Althea Korea Beauty Box

If you haven't heard about Althea Korea, then you are truly missing out. It's your go-to shopping site for everything K-beauty. They offer 100% authentic products and free international shipping plus they offer Althea Beauty Boxes!

What's an Althea Beauty Box?
It's basically a themed beauty box with about 6 to 12 full-sized products (depending on the value) where you can get the chance to try a mix of hyped products and some new favorites. The best part about these Althea Beauty Boxes aside from the fact that you don't need to subscribe to an X number of months, is that you get to immediately see what you'll receive. You can view a themed box on the site, and if you loved the products inside, you can just click to buy. Now, the downside of Althea Beauty Boxes are that they're limited quantity. Limited stocks, so when you see a box that you like, you better grab it and add it to your shopping cart immediately!

Good news because as of this writing, the Althea Sun-Kissed Box is still available. Instead of paying PHP 4,980 for everything in this box, you only have to pay PHP 1,340. If you want the Althea Sun-Kissed Box, click here

Secriss Pure Nature Mask

Secriss Pure Nature Mask
Keep your skin healthy under the UV rays with a mask sheet containing brightening and moisturizing properties.

Secriss Pure Nature Mask Review
Here's a snap from my IG stories.

Secriss Pure Nature Mask First Impression
This mask works like a miracle. I mean, I've used a few mask sheets and I didn't find any "miraculous" results immediately. But with this Secrisse Pure Nature Mask, it just made my skin immediately brighter and look well-rested. I applied it before going to bed and when I woke up, I was still looking fresh-faced. My face wasn't even oily the moment I woke up. My skin looked so amazing it looked like I applied BB cream on. Plus points because this face mask fit perfectly on my big-cheeked-face. Lol.

I love love love this mask! I will surely repurchase it! I'm going to use it for my wedding beauty routine. Again, can't express how much I love this. I think I need about 10!

Abib Hydration Cream Water Tube

Abib Hydration Cream Water Tube (sample)
Penetrates deep into the skin to hydrate and improve the elasticity of skin. Give your skin a hydrating boost with this cream.

Abib Hydration Cream Water First Impression
I think I'm a little in love with this product. It's kind of a mix between a moisturizer and a serum. The texture's a little thick but very, very lightweight. It doesn't have any scent. It's not sticky, and it dries quickly while leaving your skin feeling bouncy and very hydrated. These are the type of creams I live for especially when I go out of the country. It kind of feels like high-end eye creams, but it's for the whole face. It's a little expensive, so I'm glad I got to try it first in the Althea Sun-Kissed Box.

Calmia UV Protection Sun Stick Moist

Calmia UV Protection Sun Stick Moist
This translucent sun stick protects your skin from strong UV rays! It's travel friendly and convenient, offering powerful protection for any situation.

I know it looks odd, but I think it's very travel friendly. It's super compact and it carries a lot of product. I think this would last me months even on daily use. One unusual thing about it is that it gave my skin a radiant and dewy finish. It's not sticky when put under foundation, but it doesn't set fast either. I haven't played too much with it by pairing it with different foundations and cushions, but I think it leaves a dewy effect on the skin. I'll have to test it out more.

I love, love how it smells... It smells very fresh and clean unlike other SPF products I've tried. And the most important thing, it offers SPF 50 PA+++ which is something I really need for my monthly visits to my mom at the cemetery. That's like my ultimate test for every SPF product I have... "the cemetery test" Lol. A place where you don't have shade and you're literally under the scourging heat for 4 hours, what's a better test than that? I've only tried this once and no sun burns experienced, so good job!

I've applied the Abib Hydration Cream Water Tube + the Calmia UV Protection Sun Stick on the left, so my skin is super dewy. And notice how it turned matte when I applied the Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion. Also applied my favorite ABH dip brow pomade.

Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion in Natural Beige

Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion First Impressions
I'm very impressed with the Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion that I seriously need to do a separate review. I mean can you just see how my super tired skin looked matte and poreless after applying the Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion? Amazing! I love the packaging and I love the coverage. I also noticed that it slightly adjusted to my skin tone even though the shade was a little light. Just add a little bit of contour and this is great for everyday use. I'm really very impressed with the coverage, the semi-matte finish, the oil-control on my T-zone and it also doesn't feel heavy on the skin. I love it.

Will post an in-depth review on this one!

Rire Luxe Matte Lipstick in Nudy Beige

Rire Luxe Matte Lipstick in Nudy Beige
Bright color with one application. Light and hydrating formula. Slick and soft application. Magnetic lasting power.

I heard a lot of good things about Rire lipsticks, but somehow it didn't meet my expectations at all. I'm not sure if it's the shade or the formula, because sometimes the formulas vary depending on how dark or light the lipstick is. Nudy Beige looks a little coral and it definitely is a summer shade. Using it full color instead of a lip tint, it highlighted all the dry lines and cracks on my lips. The shade also wasn't very long lasting with a wear-time of about 2 to 3 hours. I think I need to exfoliate first and apply lip balm before using this lipstick... or maybe it works better when applied as a tint? I'm not sure, but I definitely have to test it out more. 

Laneige Ideal Blush Duo in California Coral

If you have a soft spot for rose gold like me, then I'm sure you'll want to have this. Sigh, such a beautiful intricate design. But wait, where do I put the brush? This is quite odd since it doesn't have a compartment for it, so I guess it's not that travel-friendly. The powders are very soft, smooth, and pigmented too. Even if I'm using a fluffy blush brush, it still picks up a lot of product without too much fallout. The blush gives off a coral matte which is easy to blend and the gold highlighter shade is to die for. It seriously just picks up an amazing amount of light and gives off a natural looking glow. I would rather use this gold highlighter than those trending rainbow ones. I prefer to mix the blush and highlighter together as it creates a better sun-kissed-glow on my cheeks rather than using them separately.

I thought I'm over the shimmery eyeshadow period of life, but it seems not. I've been all about that matte that I've forgotten how fun it is to wear shimmery eyeshadows that accentuate your eyes. This is a lovely color that I honestly would've ignored in stores, so good thing I got it in my Althea Beauty Box. I actually wore this for a whole week just because it was fun. It's such a pretty bronzey-orangey eyeshadow that also adds some warmth to the face. The formula is super buttery and creamy and it's also easy to blend with a tapered brush.

Althea Korea Sun Kissed Beauty Box

Here's my makeup of the day using the products from the Althea Sun-Kissed Box. I can't believe that you can get this for only PHP 1,340 instead of paying PHP 4,980. I got almost all full-sized products inside my Althea Beauty Box and it was such a bang for my buck. You can get the Sun-Kissed Box here and if you want to be updated on the monthly Althea Korea beauty boxes, you can visit their website and follow them on their social media accounts below.


I highly recommend these beauty boxes and there's definitely more to come :)
